Star Wars: Force Unleashed on Wii

Following the PSP dev walkthrough, Gamespot's posted a video focusing on the Wii version!

The video starts off slow-- no offence, but do we really need to be looking at the producer? We want to see the game, and the controllers! But once we get to the good stuff, it's worth watching. The Wii version is going to be my pick, because of the tactile controls... they do look good in this walkthrough, but it also looks like it could easily misinterpret gestures, depending on how sensitive it is.

Interesting to see the same AT-ST boss fight as in the PSP version, and how different it's handled because of the controls. On PSP, it's a series of button presses à la God of War: Chains of Olympus, and on Wii, it's controller movement(?) That could either be very good or very bad.....

It could be the time of the year, seeing as how so few new games have come out over the last few months, but Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is one of the rare games I'll be buying on launch day. I almost always wait for at least some reviews on a game before making the purchase, and I might leave the wrapper on for a bit until some positive buzz comes out for the Wii version.

But I can't wait for the game! I keep thinking, "Only a bit over a week away.... Only a bit over a week away.... Only a bit over a week away.... "

Coming out (in North America) Sept. 16, 2008.
