    We'd love to see a Wii MotionPlus-enahnced version of this game, but until then leave this one in a galaxy far, far away. [Holiday 2008, p.89]
  2. But to finally give us a lightsaber game, even a crap one, and not enable us to take on the role of Luke Skywalker and battle Darth Vader? That’s just freaking cruel.

    The Clone Wars is spared irrelevance by its style and personality, but only just. [Jan 2009, p.108]
  4. All quibbles about presentation and content aside, the game is simply incapable of delivering the sort of fluid gameplay the concept demands.

    This game is absolutely fantastic. I put off buying the game due to low review scores, but after a furious week of playing, I realized that This game is absolutely fantastic. I put off buying the game due to low review scores, but after a furious week of playing, I realized that the low review scores are simply due to fanboy reviewers crying "I like your old stuff better than your new stuff". This has nothing to do with the playability or enjoyment of the game, but rather their dislike of the direction Lucas is taking the franchise. Overall the game is amazing. Controls are tight, gameplay is pure fun and combat strategy is deep. if you actually try to come up with a strategy, you can disembowel wagglers with ease. Simply perfect! Full Review »

    Finest Wii game that can be bought in opinion, this has a lot of movement freedom and it is simple to reach grand master if fun is in pitchFinest Wii game that can be bought in opinion, this has a lot of movement freedom and it is simple to reach grand master if fun is in pitch along with it. Suppose to extend help with gaming in a real time response time the bad guys can be made short work of if fine with that sort of thing. Neat technology with it. Full Review »
