Now this, I would play. The original campaign mode looked like kids stuff. Well, actually, the new rampage mode does as well, but that at least is more appealing.

Podracing looks nice, but give me a controller anyday.

I'd like to fight Jar Jar Binks Punch-Out!!-style with Kinect.

I want to want this to be good...but so much of it has looked so crummy. Knowing me though, I'll buy it anyway.

I'm just so tired of all these Star Wars.


Top 10 Worst Kinect Games

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "A few days ago, Microsoft announced that they were officially discontinuing their Kinect motion-sensing accessory. What was once considered a chief-rival to Nintendo’s Wii revolution and an integral part of the Xbox One’s launch has come to an end, and we here at Link-Cable… couldn’t be happier. The Kinect, while sporting impressive technology never managed to live up to its full potential and most of the games released for the device either had shoe-horned in support or barely functioned as intentioned, in part because of the device’s very specific ideal conditions. So as the Kinect sails off into sunset, we’ve decided to remember the worst of times and look back at the Top 10 Worst Kinect games."

Kinect, for me, is easily worth owning for two things: Dance Central for me acting like an idiot and having fun, and Kinect Party for my kids when they want to have easy-access stupid fun at like a kid's party. Those were the only games I have enjoyed on it, and they couldn't be done any other way (well, I guess that KP is EyeToy-level work). But my hope is that when motion control falls away, we'll get a proper DDR again.

Yet for 150 quid it is and was most certainly not worth owning for solely those 2 games, that you have to pay money for also.

Now far be it from me to tell you what is worth it or not worth it to you. But if that is what is worth it to you, I don't want to know what ISN'T worth it lol.

RyanDJ2402d ago

It was worth it to buy one used for half price and get one of those two games for free. ;)

datriax2403d ago

All of them are tied for 1st place.

Star wars wouldnt be so bad if it didnt have.... the dancing. Ughhh that dancing.

They should do a list of 10 best kinect games as well. I'm sure fruit ninja and gun stringer would be on there. Those are actually fun to play.

5 Worst Licensed Video Games You Need To Avoid

MenStuff: "Fandom and loyalty to a brand or franchise can make us blind. Sometimes (and sadly, a lot of the time), developers get the opportunity to work with beloved franchises or licenses, getting us all on the hype-train, only to fail to meet up to the expectations demanded of die-hard fans."
