Doubt it... Nice try though.
Geez, the game is trash. The professional critics agree. Get over it. And they say PS3 fanboys can't take it when their exclusives get bad reviews. SMH
Sorry.. do you see MS fans here saying its a biased site, or the entire media is out to get MS?
Grasping at straws to try and find something great about a terrible game: Why I won't read this article.
Would the game be better with move and a 1:1 light saber control? The jumping around can easily be done with pseye. Now if the game would also be on ps3 would they be "grasping at straws" like this ?
What with your grasping at straws quote, I assume you are talking to me. Though, it's hard to tell... since you don't appear to have clicked that handy "reply" button to the lower right of my comment. If I am incorrect, then I apologise in advance for the response below. Straight up, don't put words in my mouth (or text in my comment) or anybody elses for that matter. It's not really all that nice, and might even end up biting you on the arse should that person reply to you (spoiler alert). I do not care what platform this game is on. I do not care what technology it utilises. It is entirely on rails and a collection of mini games. It's just bad. Had it used the ps move along with an analogue stick and been a game more akin to the force unleashed, though without the repetitive-only-3(ish)-hours-l ong-ness (that was horribly put but screw re-typing it), then hell yeah that would have been better. It would have been what (most(for the sake of not pulling facts out of my arse(or putting words in the collective mouths of every star wars fan that's a gamer(hint hint memots)))) people really would want/expect out of a motion controlled star wars game. Hell, that would've been badass in SD on the wii if they could pull off the motion control right. I don't care, since I have access to both the move and a wii with motion plus. Had they managed to somehow pull that off well with just the kinect or kinect in conjunction with a 360 controller, again hell yes that would have been better, and again I would have access to that and would probably enjoy it, though I would need to purchase a kinect first. It would likely be worth it though. Sadly though, they didn't do any of that. No, what they did was make a cheap, crappy, on rails, inaccurate collection of mini games, that could be "played" by placing one of those arm flailing tube men from family guy in front of your TV. TLDR: yes it would be better, but so would any motion controlled star wars game that is an actual game and not on rails, sans-stupid, pointless and uninteresting dancing, regardless of platform or control method.
Hey Karlnag3. No i was pointing at you. I did however steal your quote. My point was more about the article. I was saying that if the game was also on wii or Ps3 we wouldn't see article trying so hard ( grasping ;) ) to make a bad game good. I think its funny how whenever a game is a exclusive on the 360 since there is so few they are all great as per some fan. Yet pc exclusive or ps3 i just shoved under the rug and all we hear is vgchart and metacritic for a game that came out over 6 years ago.
It's better than you think because I'm han solo.
Ohh that's my ship
I love n4g comments. As soon as a game on the 360 gets a bad review fan boys are a over it calling it crap and kinect dose not work ect. Then when gt5 came out and was broken and we could see it was far from finished they defended it to the hills then forza 4 came out and blew gt5 score away and they were saying reviewers dont know what there talking about gt5 is the better looking game ect. Come on people if you don't like a game fine but just because someone else likes it dose not mean they are wrong just like you are not wrong for not liking the same game. We like different things and this is why we have choices in life. If you dont like star wars kinect thats fine go and play a game you like to play and leave the people alone who like this game.
There's a difference between these reviewers experiencing a game that wasn't even made for their demographic, noting poor controls and downright terrible content, and the GT5 reviewers who didn't even play the game enough to get through and experience all its features. GT5 has successfully added lots of free updates that have vastly improved a game that wasn't quite ready to ship to stores. It's not like they're going to bring DLC to amend the poor controls and content in this Kinect game, so whether or not people like different things, this turd will continue to stink out the Star Wars legacy, whilst being loved by the kids of this generation... oh joy. I guess I could say nothing and leave these people alone to enjoy it, if only it weren't such a disgrace to one of the world's most beloved space operas.
DigitalRaptor You say GT5 have given lots of free updates? No its not it had lots of fixes. I am not being a fan boy here I am making a point of N4G. I am a big GT fan but even I can see GT5 was far from finished when it was releaced and the 2.0 update did fix a lot of problems but the game is still not finished by a long way. I don't blame PD for this I blame Sony. But saying the reviewers did not spend enough time with the game to review it then is this not the same for Star wars as the have not looked at the instructions and played it long enough to work out how to control the game? BTW im bit saying GT5 is a bad game I just don't think it was as good of Forza 4 because it was unfinished. edonus that was well said and this is the problem with most people now adays they don't like something because someone else says they don't like it. For example Windows 8. I have seem people say that they don't like windows 8 because the lock screen has to be dragged up to unlock it yet all they have to do is press ctrl and alt and it unlocks. Then they say it was to complex to use because it looked different to windows 7. The way I look at it if someone dose not like it then fine don't try and tell me why I should not like it as I am different to them just like I wont try and tell them I don't like another game.
When i think of game reviews i treat them like reviews on dishes at a restaurant, the dish can be looked as disgusting or horrible by the reviwer but then be seen as delicious and amazing by another. Dont knock it till you try it unless its gay or something and no star wars kinect is not gay so dont post replies saying that.
