    Could we get the Force Unleashed Wii review!?

    7.5 is a weird score for it.. specially with DQIV and Mario Sluggers getting the same score [​IMG]

    Well, I learned to ignore NP scores since they gave a low score to Soul Bubbles.. still, I'm curious to see their arguments [​IMG]

    Well you shouldn't judge a game by 1 review score, especially without even reading what they say about the game. I'm curious of what they have to say about it...I think I might just try to find the JPN version to see what problems it has.

    Heh, well thanks. But I somehow already knew(or thought) what the complaints would be. The review doesn't seem to go in much detail, but Harvest Moon is Harvest Moon. Still will probably play it, if I have any time to play a videogame. Heard it was good from the very few people who tried it out in the JPN release.

    Ofcourse not, I'm gonna play it anyway, but a game with better reviewscores is most of the times a better game ;)..

    Sigh... Another disappointing issue of NP. Not just the reviews, but the magazine itself.

    Why are the reviews always so damn small? They don't say much in NP, do they?

    The Force Unleashed's score didn't come as a surprise to be honest. Nice to know the story does Star Wars justice though. Hopefully the 360 and PS3 versions fare better, seeing as that's where LucasArts new powerhouse technology and graphics comes into its own.
    Also mourning the fact it's coming out on all platforms except the PC, which is a weird move for LucasArts.

    Oh, and the Extra stuff on WiiWare is appreciated, it's hard to keep tabs on those titles as nowhere has reviewed any WiiWare titles since launch. Though personally I don't pay attention to VC scores, and not many other people do I'm sure.
