We got a chance to see how the geek half plays The Force Unleashed by going hands on with the Dual Glow Sabers from Dreamgear. As usual, just pop your Wiimote in the holster and start hacking and slashing. These come in Jedi blue and Sith red and each take 2 AAA batteries to light up. These are about 2 feet long, so as long as you give yourself some space the furniture should be safe. These are definitely better designed then some of the other saber attachments that we’ve seen.
They won’t improve your game, but they do make you embrace your dork side and they are pretty fun to swing around for awhile. Kids and hardcore dorks will get the most use out of them. I was slashing up wookies and Jedis with ease, but I kept thinking how much cooler it would have been to have a sound effect. The attachment doesn’t hinder game play as far as I could tell. Still, at the end of the day swinging these sabers while playing the game is a great way to get some exercise and have some fun. The dreamGear Dual Glow Sabers will be avalable soon for about $20.
