To make up for the lack of DMM and euphoria, Krome studios has included 5 exclusive levels that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will not include.

http://www.forceunleashed.net/news/exclusive-force-unleashed-levels-for-wii/

I think this is definitely a good way to make up for what the Wii lacks and it definitely makes it a more attractive game when you're deciding which version to get.

A good way indeed. That, paired with the exclusive duel mode really make the game look like it's able to compete with it's twin versions.


I'm still getting it for the 360, though.

I hate it when they make the games different between each console. It's basically saying "You have a 360 (or whatever) instead of a Wii? Well too bad, screw you."

It reminds me of that Xbox-only expansion pack for Battlefront 2.

Its not screwing anybody. Wii owners don't get the physics engines that the PS3 and 360 versions get, we get dumbed down versions. I think it just makes all the versions more equal.

Yeah, it's like the PSP version getting historical exclusive missions. It's obvious, from being handheld, that Sony portable console will have the worst graphics (Except for the DS). So it's more than fair that they get a compensation.

The historical missions was something that I wish other versions (eg whatever version I get :p) would have because I just think it'd be really cool to do battles like Luke vs Vader with the over the top Force powers. So I see where people are coming from when they say they want the other versions exclusives.

If it was a japanese developer, they would release a year later a "TFU +" with all those extras wrapped up on one game for the price of the same game a year ago. :xp:

I am a Wii owner, and, to be honest . . . I had no clue that the Wii version didn't have DMM or ephoria . . . that destroys it for me. I thought, until I read this thread, that both were still applied to the Wii, the graphics just weren't as powerful. I would rather have those two advantages than 5 added levels. The advanced physics is what attracted me to this game so much. Now, I don't know anymore . . . I'd buy a 360 or ps3 just to have that added bonus! Anyway, to those who own a ps3 or 360, you are not being cheated whatsoever . . . in my opinion. And I think many would agree with me. Anyway . . . I guess I can only hope . . .

That proves my point even more. No console should get the short end of the stick in any respect.

so you're saying that the ps3 should have the same graphics as the one on the ps2?

Maybe the question that should be asked is, How many people are going to buy the game for multiple consoles?

(Now I have no idea what console I want this game on - though it might just be the X360 because it has the biggest number of games that I want.)

If it didn't have to get the "short end of the stick" it wouldn't. The Wii exclusives are there to make the Wii version more appealing. Nobody would get the Wii version if it didn't have something that the X360 and PS3 ones didn't.

Good, stay tune for Gamefaqs so we can get all the codes :)

Well, I do agree that maybe some of the models would be quite attractive, but unfortunately the location I live in currently have little access to star wars stuff.

Hack, even real star wars fans are rare... and by that I mean the simple requirement of having watched all 6 movies within 1 year and know that wookiees does not live on Endor.

Well I think Not making it for the Wii would have been a terrible Idea so I am very glad they decided to.By the nature of play style the Wii features I hope they dont decide to make it like Fire Eblem where you turn the remote too the side and work it like a regular controller.That would definitely make the game less attractive.

A lot of people I think. There are many gamers out there with multiple consoles. I'm not just talking about the hardcore ones either. A lot of people I know have the Xbox 360, PS3, as well as the Wii.

Lol, they must either have too much money, or too much debt....

Well, it's usually too much money to be honest. Most of the time, it's a poor use of it as well :)

(Now I have no idea what console I want this game on - though it might just be the X360 because it has the biggest number of games that I want.)For me it depends when it comes out. I'll be at home during the summer and my brother has an Xbox 360 and plans to buy it. I'll definitely be getting the Wii version. But if it comes out too late where I'll already be back at school my roommate next year has a 360 so I would buy it for that.

I wouldn't be shocked if the extra levels or some other kind of content won't be implemented on the 360 version as downloadable content later on.

I think you have a point. All depends on how well the game does, though.

I am sure it will do well enough for that. I am more worried about the multiplayer. When I say multiplayer I don't mean dueling. Thats a cope out in my opinion. Thats dual player. I am talking Deathmatch and stuff. But enough of that, you can read my thoughts on the subject in the multiplayer thread. None-the-less. It makes sense for the game to have some differences, there are things that some consoles can't do, so to make up for it they get something else. I don't grudge them that, as I am sure they don't grudge me watching ST's tumbling through the air hopelessly grasping for something to arrest their flight.

...But only for one console.

These levels will be featured in the PS2 version as well as the Wii.

However, a guy at Game Stop explained it to me today: these are not five additional levels as I had previously believed, they are five different levels taking the places of levels in the next-gen systems that are just impossible to function on the last-gen systems.

I'd take anything the grunts at GameStop tell you with a pinch of salt. I remember being told by GameStop employees that the release of Eye of Judgment on the PS3 had been cancelled, when it obviously hadn't. Generally speaking, if a GameStop employee says it I'm inclined to believe the opposite.

Still, it may be worth trying to contact the devteam to verify the info.

That is a good point, and I think you just inadvertently sold me on the 360 version over the Wii. I was (and still kind of am) torn over which to go for.

However, a guy at Game Stop explained it to me today: these are not five additional levels as I had previously believed, they are five different levels taking the places of levels in the next-gen systems that are just impossible to function on the last-gen systems.
I am curious to know if this is true... if so, I am going for the 360 version without any reservations. Too bad the source was a Game Stop employee...

I might just have to get it for both systems then. I am sure those levels will eventually come out as DLC...

Yeah I actually just went through the entire TFU website on lucasarts.com and I'm pretty sure I'm buying both. I think the Wii version will be worth it for the duel mode alone, and of course being able to wield a lightsaber with the remote and use the nunchuk for force powers. That's awesome.

But I definitely want the 360 version (or PS3, whatever) for the physics too, so I can't pass that up.

Yea, I hear you on that one. I am sure it will be just as good without the extra levels anyways.
