    In addition to the solid single-player adventure, The Force Unleashed II has a Super Smash Bros.-inspired multiplayer component that's good fun. [Dec 2010, p.]

    The Force Unleashed II is a better sequel on the Nintendo's plattform than PS3/X360 versions. Great visuals, fluid combat and good playability.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II for the Nintendo Wii is definitely better than the first episode, both for graphics and controls. There has been no attempt to implement some real time lightsaber action in the game, however the character can execute dozens of moves and that's definitely fun.

    Fluid combat and great art lift this Force-powered sequel above its flaws.
  5. Distinctly lacking in character and longevity. [Christmas 2010, p.70]

    The Force Unleashed does a good job of, er, unleashing the force, but beneath the flashy powers and lightsabers this is a tame and outdated game. [Issue#56, p.67]

    Outside of the excellent multiplayer, there is still some fun to be had in Force Unleashed II.

Compared to that game, this one deserves like, a twelve. This one has no waggle-to-attack (thank goodness) and Starkiller holds his lightsabers backwards, like he is supposed to! Combat is way faster, should make twitch gamers happy. Controls really tailored to suit the Wii, this is so important, as you might imagine. Camera is better, I never felt like I was lost or couldn't see, and that happens to me in a lot of games, so. I know this is a Star Wars game, and you should expect this, but, man, the sound is sweet, too. Nothing quite so gratifying as hearing that lightsaber sizzle and crack again and again as you wail on some Imperials!! Makes you feel powerful. Expand

    Very cool game! Hoping to play the multiplayer soon with friends. I think this game mode really kicks the Wii version over the top! I canVery cool game! Hoping to play the multiplayer soon with friends. I think this game mode really kicks the Wii version over the top! I can fight as Vader or Boba Fett, how cool. I smell a party, who's bringing beer? The single player mode is very solid. I especially like the boss fights, though the entire single player revision is great! Expand

    Worth it for the multi-player alone but the single player is also incredible even for non-Star Wars fans! Graphics are borderline next-genWorth it for the multi-player alone but the single player is also incredible even for non-Star Wars fans! Graphics are borderline next-gen quality and among the best yet seen on a Wii. Game play is great and laser fast. Normal mode is a bit easy but makes you feel super powerful. For those looking for a real challenge turn up the difficulty a notch. Expand

I was breaking walls, chopping off limbs, and felt like a total badass. Then I got to the next level where I was breaking walls, chopping off limbs, and felt like a total badass. Then, in the level after that, I was breaking walls, chopping off limbs, and felt like a total badass. See what I am getting at here? REPITITION. Pretty much every level was the same. All the enviroments have walls that break the same way as the last. The enemies all die the same way. And because Starkiller is such a badass, the game is way too easy. Even Darth Frickin Vader is a total pushover. Its still worth a rent, though, and a ton of fun on the first playthrough. Expand

    Dont throw down $60 for this, story is weak, gameplay is monotonous, length of game is like 5-7 hours, and the game only has a lot of life inDont throw down $60 for this, story is weak, gameplay is monotonous, length of game is like 5-7 hours, and the game only has a lot of life in multiplayer. I honestly don't have much to say about this besides you will most likely be disappointed. Expand
