Star Wars: The Clone Wars Republic Heroes is far from heroic, and has been a major disappointment to Star Wars fans and the franchised as a whole. It is a big universe but in this game Star Wars ju...

Star Wars The Clone Wars Lightsaber Duels could have easily been the perfect Wii game. Well, for starters, it has the perfect recipe for success: lightsabers, futuristic weapons battle out against Separatist droids, and Sith lords, among others.

The events of Lightsaber Duels were from both the Clone Wars CG animated movie, and the animated series. You are placed in between Episodes II and III, Anakin has yet to be tempted. The Jedi Order has given him his own apprentice, young Padawan Ahsoka Tano, and Obi Wan Kenobi enjoys watching Anakin struggle to become a student to teacher in a short time. Together, you will uncover a plan of the Separatists to kidnap Jabba the Hutt’s son. Jabba, a crime lord, is supposed to side with the Jedi in the Clone wars to restore peace and prosperity to the galaxy but the arthropod General Grievous, Sith Lord Count Dooku and his apprentice Asajj Ventress stood in the way.

Lightsaber Duels holds true to many of the standard tenets of fighting games. The best two out of three format has been utilized and improved upon so that cut scenes can play around without any signs of slowing down. You will often come in close contact with your enemy via lightsabers, and the camera will quickly zoom in to show the action. The collaboration of LucasArts and Lucasfil Animation has produced magnificent work.

Problems start kicking once you are in the actual game play. The player will be forced to awkwardly flick the Wii remote from side to side to land the desired attack. Powerful as the lighsaber is, you might not feel the Force coming to you in achieving glory. The Wii’s still limited motion control system hampers the epicness of this game.

Star Wars The Clone Wars Lightsaber Duels may be proficient and accurate in terms of technicality, but it still depends on how the user perceives it. The production value of this game is targeted for mature and Star Wars fans, but I feel only the younger audience will appreciate it. I didn't really enjoy this game and wish I could have taken it back.
