WGTC: Kinect Star Wars Review

Chad from We Got This Covered writes:

"Since the late 1970s, George Lucas' behemoth Star Wars film franchise has been a force to be reckoned with. With five other films released after its emergence, A New Hope blew away fans of science fiction storytelling. Its rich content, diverse themes and great characters set a mark that has proven tough to beat even to this day, and the two sequels that followed it added to that greatness. Unfortunately, those standards were not met by the more modern Prequel Trilogy, which has been maligned by fans and critics alike; however, one thing remained consistent throughout all six films: each one made us want to be a Jedi. While it isn't a possibility in reality, video games have attempted to make us feel like a Force-induced warrior, with LucasArts' newly-released Kinect Star Wars being the latest addition to that list. Unfortunately, it doesn't fully succeed in that venture, ending up as a mediocre-at-best release for a peripheral that desperately needs a new must-buy piece of software."

5/10 is an understatement

so you think it should have scored more?

I have a $25 gift card to Dell.com and I'm planning on getting the game for half price if they ever decide to carry it online. I figure for $25 out of my pocket I can afford to buy this craptastic title. It's not that I want to experience being a Jedi, it's that I want to see how bad the game really is. Damn shame Star Wars Battlefront 3 gets cancelled and this gets to live... LucasArts has not performed this generation.

Save money and emulate the Superman 64 rom. That game is hilariously BAD, this game is blandly sub-par (sans the goofy dancing stuff).

Solid review. Even while mentioning what they would have liked to see in the game, they focus more on what's there and how well it's executed. That's how you write a review.

Thanks for checking it out, as well as the kind words.

Well written review, but from my experience with this game and from watching my kids play it. I have to disagree with the score just a bit. Like I have mentioned before on other posts, the game is far from perfect, but if you follow the onscreen prompts, don't move all around flailing about and stay in one spot, the game actually handles ok. My kids and I are big fans of Star Wars and we actually really enjoy the game. I would give it a score between 70% and 80%. Plus it will wear your kids out and make them sleepy lol :)
