I've been looking for a good swordfighting game to play on my Wii console, so when I saw Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on the clearance rack at Walmart for $20, I picked it up. The game wasn't exactly what I expected. I begin the game as the kidnapped child who is now the apprentice of Darth Vader, and I usually prefer to play the hero types, not the villians. But I'm still learning how to use the Force, and the Wii controller and nunchuk are great for the light saber and force push action scenes. Darth Vader sends me on missions to clear out a planet, or to get more Force training at the temple, which is really just more battles that I have to complete to earn a higher rank. There's no permanent death in any of the battles, but it can take me several tries before I can finish the battle.

I think the swordfighting is great, and just what I wanted to be able to do with my Wii motion sensors. But Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is very limited in its storyline. And after a couple of hours of fighting stormtroopers and bosses, my arms are sore from all of that hack and slash, push and dash. But you can add a second Wii controller to this game and have light saber fights with your friends, and that makes adding this Wii game to your collection totally worth it.
