This game is too dark for children and tweens. This is the only game we returned due to its disturbing nature. (We play halo and call of duty) It begins with killing for killing sake without a defined enemy. Just killing wookies... Granted it wasn't bloody yet it still seemed too graphic. I can't imagine what it would have been like if I had chosen the dark side. Parents should play this one first. I believe the emotional impact and violence of this games is far worse than the visual images portray.
Personal killing without mercy makes this game a bad choice for tweens and younger
My problem with this game is the need to relentlessly kill people who are begging for mercy. My son will point out that this happens in the movies too, but in the movies, he is not the person choosing to kill the person in order to advance to the next level. Characters literally beg for their lives and in order to "win" you need to reject these pleas. The deaths are personal and although blood is not a big issue, the morals of it are quite questionable for my 11 year old. Perhaps when he is over 13...
I'll be honest,this is one of the BEST games i've ever played.I've played the one ony my XBOX 360 and the one on Wii.The one on Wii is pretty bad,but this is better.It is so easy to defeat the villain on this game!

Star Wars:The Force Unleashed : I like that there are a few games out there that are full of action but not full of filthy language. I would like suggestions to games for 13-15 that are not too violent DO NOT contain language, sex, alchohol etc...send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org

not worth the time or the money
the game starts out as vader killing wookies and strom troopers alike no gore exists and the game doesnt deserve a T more like an E 10 the only thing i would be worried about my kid seeing in it would be the horrible story line and ending i wont ruin it for those who want to play the game but you will probaly be dissapponted the violence isnt that bad but is still there so while it isn't for a two year old i would let a ten year old play without caring
This game is probably one of the best Star Wars games I have ever played! It's much better on the XBOX 360! The one on the Wii kinda stinks. Anyway, in this game, you are able to use the force to defeat your enemies. There's tons of ways to defeat them! I think that is what makes this game cool! It is violent, so this game is ok for kids 13 and up! I want to play the second game. I heard it is really good!
This is probably one of the best games I've ever played. While it is a bit violent, there is no blood or gore. The story follows a young Force wielder (17 years old) as he overcomes a violent upbringing to conquer his anger for the sake of those he loves. That in itself is a positive message.
Well isn't everyone a critic. I think there shouldn't be child reviews, anyway you might want to keep this game a way from the youth. In one scene a crazy alien guy was fighting and my my next door neighbor's kid started to cry, over all it was a very good game.
