Kinect Star Wars offers 20 hours of gameplay

With Kinect Star Wars Microsoft thinks gamers can have up to 20 hours of fun. Every one of the four modes in the game makes use of some sort of story, mixing motion controlled section with more relaxing moments in the game.

During an event in Amsterdam global marketing director Michael Johson from Microsoft showed the four main gameplay aspects of Kinect Star Wars. The Jedi Mode and the Pod Racing Mode are the main attractions, while the Dance Mode and the Rancor Mode can be seen as extra's for people to enjoy. That's what Johnson told Zoomin Games during an interview. (Kinect Star Wars, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

I'd rather play 2 hours of quality gameplay than 20 of complete nonsense shovelware gameplay...

force unleashed is pretty good...
this game....not sure about. The first part with fighting the droids was ok. I was digging the pod racing and the rancor smashing stuff was not bad.

When it showed the dancing and then leia dancing....wtf. Then again it is a kinect game and dance games are so hot right now.

If that is the extent of the dance then maybe. I dont want to end up trying to dance my way around darth vader later in the game or worse. Dance like a wookie.

I realize this game is for kids, but it doesn't even look like you can die in the game. Where is the challenge in that?
morganfell  +   1066d ago
Everybody wins. Did you come in last? Here's your medal. It's the new society that says winning is bad and no one should ever lose.

So it's not possible to finish in one "sitting"...


Okay I feel terrible now...

My opinion of this game wasn't very good initially, however everything except the dance segment seems pretty decent. While this game isn't Star Wars: Battlefield, and is a Kinect game, that doesn't mean it "can't" be fun. Granted many gamers are instantly turned off (and dare I say intimidated) by Kinect and its casual appeal, there are decent games already available. Gunstringer, Child of Eden and Fruit Ninja Kinect are all very well done games. I wouldn't write off this game until the reviews come out or a demo is available.

I thought the main problem with it was that it doesn't work,input lag etc?
YodaCracker  +   1066d ago
I can't wait to try this game.
archemides518  +   1066d ago
that includes 18 hours of cantina dance mode

I am not a fanboy. I simply want to convey an idea to a game company. Make star wars for the ps3. How awesome would it be to use the move for this. It could b 1st person. The controllers light up green, blue, red, and purple. In a dark room, they glow. If done by a good fps game company, it could b high quality. Imagine swinging a glowing purple move controller and each time it makes that woosh noise. The move would b easier and better suited to use as a saber than a gun. It could basically b like zelda skyward sword for the ps3, produced very well with an amazing story. Like zelda, each enemy would be susceptible to different attacks. They could b used as a shield. With high quality programmers, u could literally become a walking jedi. If done by rocksteady or a company that really, really loves star wars and wants to make a game in which u become a jedi, this could b the first truly epic adventure for hardcore gamers, in regards to motion controls. It isn't so much that the controls are bad as what there are being used as. They are not guns. When they are used as ping pong paddles or golf clubs, they shine. They were made for this, to b lighteners.

If anyone is reading, do this. The great thing is that star wars never gets old, so there is no window...so let's do this. Forget tmnt rocksteady...this is ur new idea. JK, but really, how awesome would it b if it was actually done well.

Move would have worked so much better for this game..
PixL  +   1066d ago
Probably Microsoft paid for another timed exclusivity deal for Star Wars franchise so this won't happen anytime soon...
urwifeminder  +   1066d ago
Day one for me new tiger woods as well with kinnect me3 and the witcher that will keep me for half the year woo hoo.

Thats one copy sold then.
DigitalRaptor  +   1065d ago
This poor game will sell millions on the basis that it is Star Wars and Kinect alone. 2 of the "hottest" names in entertainment apparently. I personally don't care about what it "hot" but what is actually good.

I recommend people go and sink 20 hours into a BioWare Star Wars game or even The Force Unleashed. That will be less of a waste of time.

So I can't wait for the dancing scene...Facepalm.
LX-General-Kaos  +   1066d ago
Now that the playstation kinect has been patented hopefully sony will have a game that will rival this. It will be the battle of the hands free gaming.
coryok  +   1066d ago
i would rather sony not try and secure a comparable game, this looks horrid. they should keep doing as theyre doing - sony has much better games than this releasing, microsoft needs to catch up to sony, not the other way around
IRetrouk  +   1066d ago
Have to agree, thing is Sony already did the whole no hands game play crap, realized gameplay needs a controller and went from there, anyone that disagrees that this game would have been better with move are either blind or stupid, for a start you could of had full proper character movement
SaffronCurse  +   1066d ago
The only thing Sony really needs to improve is their marketing strategy, they have to really stick their products up our asses like what Microsoft is doing.
AWBrawler  +   1066d ago
Okay.. dancing Starwars games??? I honestly don't know how to feel.
On the one hand, Hands free gaming is what every futuristic show has shown us is the future, on the other hand, I have yet to see a Game on kinect that i would call the future.

I want Kinect to succeed with the hardcore market, either that or somebody release a VR helmet
ninjahunter  +   1066d ago
Standard is standard.
Clayman  +   1066d ago
I thought that dance mode was just a bad joke.
ironmonkey  +   1066d ago
how do you die in this game?
FernandoMartinez  +   1066d ago
Well OK. 20 hours sounds great. If you can call this pile of shit gameplay...

I can feel your hate.....

I am actually pretty excites about this game. The dance section is not really something i would be interested in but dont forget I wont be the only person playing this game. Dance games have been one of the bread and butter genres of motion gaming this only increases is success.

20 hours of gameplay.....that is quite a bit when you consider that you will be up and moving around the whole time.
r21  +   1066d ago
so much potential....so much more with the move.
from the beach  +   1066d ago
Sounds far too long, hopefully that will boil down to a solid, tight main campaign and extra bits that can be ignored.
BabyTownFrolics  +   1066d ago
does n4g still hate kinect?
