Joystiq Gets their hands on Force Unleashed (Wii)

WiiHD's gallery of fresh Wii-specific screens and video for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is ready for your waiting eyes. But we didn't want to just give you eye candy, so we dug up Joystiq's hands-on for the Wii too.

Assuming you haven't been hiding under rock for the past few months, you know the Wii gets an exclusive Duel Mode where you can go head to head with your friends. It also gets a few extra stages over the PS360, and some special Wii-specific moves. Joystiq didn't miss the advanced physics of the PS360, proclaiming that the Wii physics felt "realistic enough" under the conditions they were able to test. The visuals were jaggie-filled, but Joystiq liked most of the motion controls. Although the light saber didn't always respond in kind, they were down with the force controls.

The Duel Mode has no AI option—it requires 2 players. There are 27 characters and 9 locations to choose from. In addition to lightsaber action, you still get to use your force powers on objects in the locations. Best we can tell, there isn't much differentiation between the characters' moves. Everyone gets one single blade lightsaber, and the same basic move set. You can tell the characters have different strengths from the duel mode screenshot though. But overall the moves feature a richness in combination that makes this mode a rich fighter, almost worthy of separate packaging according to Joystiq.

Hit the break for Wii-specific media.
