Kinect Star Wars (Xbox 360)

 

We've all been there. That moment of clarity as you see a lightsaber effortlessly slice through a stormtrooper for the first time and think, yes, this is it, this is what I've been searching for, my whole reason for being. I want to be a Jedi. As those...

I'd like to consider myself a pretty hardcore Star Wars fan. While I may not get dressed up like a Stormtrooper and my slave Leia outfit is strictly for home use, I do have Star Wars tattoos! Come on, that's pretty hardcore, right? It's always a nice...

The stylized, animated graphics actually work surprisingly well, with good facial animations... some of the time. But it seems like for lesser characters they couldn't be bothered and the contrast is noticeable. The replicated animations from our real...

Kinect Star Wars gives players a reason to finally use their Kinect system in the way it was designed to be used, albeit in a frustrating and often unresponsive way.

Remember the first time you held a Wii Remote? I do. The loose hilt of a controller nestled in my fleshy hand, I instantly started making

Kinect Star Wars is a game that deserves no recommendation. Die hard Star Wars fans will likely be insulted by the blatant plastering of their beloved universe onto another unremarkable Kinect minigame collection. Children will grow bored of the short...

Kinect Star Wars review [Xbox 360]

 

From the moment the game was first announced at E3 2010, it's been clear that Microsoft have placed a lot of faith in the Star Wars brand to help sell Kinect to those who remain sceptical of its abilities. Arriving over six months late and accompanied...

There's certainly more to Kinect Star Wars than a mere generic collection of mini-games, but is really the manifestation of Naga Sadow's wrath for motion gaming?

In those areas where Kinect Star Wars does work, it can be a lot of fun to play, and this makes it so disappointing that it so often falters elsewhere. In the end, how much fun you will have with it is going to depend largely on whether or not you have...

I can understand what Microsoft was trying to go for when it first announced it was doing a Star Wars game exclusively for the Kinect. It wanted to reach out to its casual audience, showing them that its motion accessory wasn't just a one-note gimmick...

I have to admit that when I wrote my detailed last-ditch preview of Kinect Star Wars which hit the site this time last week I thought it would be my final throw of the dice on the title. That probably explains why my preview is so review-like, going...

Every time the controls click, it’s amazing. But when they don’t...

Silly dance sequences lighten the mood, but sluggish combat and a forgettable narrative make Kinect Star Wars a weak choice.

Dance mode's silly choreography and music are comical fun ; It's gratifying to stomp around as a Rancor

Lightsaber duels are slow to the point of monotony ; Storyline is derivative of the original trilogy ; All the fun is sapped out of using the Force

If you were holding out hope for at least a decent story to propel you through the proceedings, then you're sorely out of luck there too. It's not that it's bad as such; it's just completely forgettable, consisting of a weird amalgamation of events...

Hardcore Star Wars fans and savage dogs have a lot in common. They both rarely sleep, whenever they get a chance to show their teeth, they will, and they're very rarely happy. If you're a hardcore Star Wars fan, you're going to want to look away now....

Kinect Star Wars is another in a long list of Kinect titles that just doesn’t cut it. Its unresponsive controls, lack of depth and short-lived gaming experiences do little to cater for any audience. Quite why Microsoft backed it so much is still a...
