Kinect Star Wars Footage Once Again Shows That The Force Isn't Strong

Ian Fisher writes: Outside of some typical hokey material featuring the two hosts of Kinect All Access, a good amount of footage is shown for Kinect Star Wars sans any attempts at immediate humor – at least intentional humor that is. In the past Kinect Star Wars looked a bit rough at E3 2011 and PAX Prime and this time out it simply looks mediocre and depressing. Mass glitches may be absent, but the general gameplay still looks stiff and is far from providing the 1:1 movement gamer’s desire from a lightsaber based Star Wars game.

i didn't see any dancing footage the hosts were kind of annoying and i have to say the artwork in the game improved slightly.

How dare they make this instead of Battlefront 3. What a slap in the face to real Star Wars fans.

Anything branded Star Wars sell craploads, they could have made Dance Central SW theme/skin and those SW followers would buy it in a heartbeat :P

What is this video. Feels really dumbed down. Any back to Star Wars its looks OK except for the fact you have no freedom of movement and simplistic moves. Better demo than the last time they showed it

yea they could have added a bunch of cool moves like the ones from the main character of force unleashed. I can tell they worked the best they could to get to this point but they could of really done better when it comes to things like moves and characters i guess. I would have added maybe a dual light saber mode and instead of having one arm control force i would have them on the same arm but to use the force you would have to open your hand. and your other hand could be for aiming and to move you could put your foot forward and you would move where your non combat arm is aiming. it could of been done but then again they probably didn't believe that it was possible or couldn't do it or didn't come up with such a control scheme. A sith story line would have also been amazing with a sort of hard mode where you go against other jedi and rancor's and stuff.

I think if they waited for Kinect 2.0 then maybe this could work. Right now its not all that great. I think the best part of Kinect is voice commands at the moment.

I think its funny in this demo we see mostly other modes around the Jedi part as well. Even they know the Jedi part is not that great.

Ignoring the tremendously cheesy video.. I think this'll be a fun game.

I wish I could play Star wars Kinect with a pad.
The gmae controls appear really dumbed down, I see lag. And it looks really repetitive. Hack, hack, hack, jump, hack, force push etc...

Where is the depth?
Can you even walk around freely, explore the world, do anything other than hack, hack, hack...?

God, wish I could play KOTOR 3

Do you really?

I mean there are plenty Star Wars games with a pad already. The whole fun idea with this game is Kinect.
