    "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed" doesn't really offer anything special, but basic hack and slash entertainment people enjoy.

    Star wars the force unleashed is a slightly deranged low quality clone of the wii version.Throughout the game play many parts of the story became eather changed or completely wiped out of the story wich makes it some what less exciting. The pre programed control touch pad buttons make fighting slow,chopy and limited. However the wide veriety of combos are easy to execute and make up forStar wars the force unleashed is a slightly deranged low quality clone of the wii version.Throughout the game play many parts of the story became eather changed or completely wiped out of the story wich makes it some what less exciting.

    Unique and entertaining combat, basic but enjoyable levels, and an outstanding story save the hyped up star wars title. It is however far too short, and the controls can be frustrating.

    The DS version is certainly not the best way to experience The Force Unleashed, but the story is compelling enough to keep you playing to the end. [Oct 2008, p.87]
  2. The Dark side of the Force unleashed: unresponsive controls, plain combat, and rudimentary graphics choke an electrifying story.
  3. The Force feels quite leashed in the DS version of this Star Wars action game.
