Star Wars Episode 3.5: The Force Unwiished

I think it is time to write a review for this game. I have been putting it off for a while and it is time the game has gotten the praise it deserves.

To begin, I give this game a 10 because even if it was something along the line of pong, if it had the same compelling story as this game has, it wouldn't matter. It still does not matter. I liked this game. I thought the story was second to none and if it were made into a live-action film would be the greatest plot of Star Wars since Episode 5.5: Shadows of the Empire.

The gameplay, while in the commcerial looking like it would be the best thing ever, is a little repetative on the Wii. Even though it looks like there is an option to kill the AT-ST any way you want, unfortunately you keep crushing it no matter what way you move the remote. Considering the amount of times the on screen prompt appears in the fight (I believe somewhere close to five), no matter what direction you give, the same thing happens in each sequence. Its kind of pitiful.

However, this game still has a lot of charm, and a good bit of romance. It was much better than the sappy and poorly written dialogue between Anakin Skywalker and the Ugly Kid from Stargate.. I mean Padme... no, they're the same person.

I also enjoy the fact that you can play through the game while changing your character skin until the game makes very little sense. Walking in and seeing Shaak-Ti killing herself?! It would confuse Stephen Hawking.

This game rules.
