Seems a lot like Tony Hawk what with all them RAILS. Controls look sluggish, gameplay looks cumbersome and boring. I'd probably get bored after 10 minutes or so. Having something to hold on to > aimlessly flailing your arms through the air. Sorry Microsoft, you blew it.
It didn't look very responsive, granted this isn't the final product, but it's not looking good.
I just dont see the appeal when you can wave your arms around like crazy and the Saber swipes once, slowly. Its not copying your movements. Its just using movement as a trigger to play the canned animations. I just dont see any skill or fun in it, unless you really, really want to be a Jedi and this is as close as you can get. I'd love to see a first person Samurai game with 1:1 tracking and body specific damage and injury's. Why isnt anyone trying to do something ambitious with this tech instead of all this fluff?
As much as i love starwars this looks terrible. They should have just done an exclusive Jedi Knight game but without Kinect or at most with Kinect as an option.
Hurry up. Wave your arms & go BZZZZ. You truly have the force young one
Kinect - it only does on rails...
Looking pretty good so far, once they get the gameplay tightened up, looks like a winner, finally motion lightsaber fights! :)
