Anyone got any links to a review of the Wii version of the game?

Fun but ultimately average... thought so.

Thanks Rich.  Great links.

Can't wait to get my hands on this game and start carving up stormtroopers and wookies alike!

I downloaded the arcade demo and it is far more Jedi Power Battles than Dark Forces.  I may pick it up in a sale.

having tasted the full game, I give it a resounding meh. It's very samey and the targeting thing for your force grip has in no way improved on the demo. Give it a rental before you splash I reckon. It's also not an impossible 1000G for us whores out there. Requires a few playthroughs to get em all it seems.

Yeah, same here. I was actually hoping that it will in some way be a bit like Dark Forces, but it seems to lack the depth. I reckon I'll either trade something in for it or wait until it is cheaper as well.

But Jedi Power Battles was fun in a Plan 9 sort of way...

I'll just keep plugging away at mercenaries 2; the most fun game I've played in a long time.

Yay, I get to play this tomorrow! Even though it's only got average reviews I'm still looking forward to it. Though I'll have to wait til 8.30 tomorrow night as the missus is on late shift and is picking it up for me on the way to work.

I think I'll stick with Oblivion until Fable 2 and Dead Space come out. I'll probably just give this a rent somewhere down the line.

Grrrrr! In The Sun there was an advert saying ASDA had it for 30, first two days only and it opened at midnight so two hours after my shift finished I went back to the horrible green place only to be told that they didn't have any in stock because ASDA House told them it came out Saturday!

Cheers for the tipoff! It's available online at the Asda website for 30 too. The Xbox 360 versions were in stock when I was online just a moment ago.....

It's also 30 at Tesco's, was tempted to buy it at lunch time but I found the demo quite repetetive towards the end so I'll be slapping this on my Lovefilm rental list methinks.

Both Tescos online and in-store seem to be doing it for ~39.99

Strange, my local Tesco are selling it for 30. I had a copy with a 30 price tag in my hands no more than 30 minutes ago

The star destroyer part is so annoying, spent 30 mins trying and gave up, Wish I never spent the money, all that hype for nothing, effing Star Wars.

I was severely tempted to buy this on the way home from work today, reading the above comments make me glad I managed to resist the temptation, thanks guys.

Ok just completed my first play through, and I really like this game, it doesn't live up to the height or anything. But as far as a blow it all away action game it rules, just running through levels throwing stormies off ledges and nuking the shizzle out of them with lightning, freaken rules!

Bosses can be kinda tough, in comparison to the rest of the game. But it's still fun, 4/5 douches from me.

I'm loving it so far. Me disagreeing with the professional reviews on a Star Wars production again, big surprise...

I'm loving it too- the story's great and it is so much fun lobbing people about with The Force.

I think the general consensus from people is it's a good game, just not as good as it can potentially be.

Worth a purchase I suppose.

Lot of repetitive button bashing but enjoying it none the less.
 
Level 3 boss was a pain in the ass though and hope there not all that tough as it was becoming borderline frustrating.
