Kids may be happy with this game. And if you want to break it out for a party, the Dance Off game is funny. It’s so rare to find a game with a sense of humor in it these days. The Rancor Rampage is quite entertaining. And so this Star Wars title has enough redeeming qualities to satisfy people who are in love with the George Lucas property. But the writing in the main story put me to sleep. And the Kinect controls are so inaccurate that they take you out of what should be a magical fantasy experience. Clearly, more time wouldn’t have helped this game. Better writers might have salvaged it, but it amazes me that no one told the team to start over and get it right.

Kinect Star Wars heeft een boel lichtpunten, maar helt vooral op het gebied van Force- en lightsabergebruik te fel over naar de Dark Side om hoge toppen te kunnen scheren.

Kinect Star Wars isn't great, but it sure does feel good to play a brand new Star Wars title. There's a lot of content here to explore, and the game has a way of bringing out the little kid in you.

You hear it already. Kinect Star Wars is probably not something for you. All in all it's created decently but the basic gameplay is so limited and repetitive, and the controls so vague that only the biggest fans may enjoy it. We still believe in the Star Wars universe but those looking for a good game would do best to stay away from this one. If you're looking for something new for Kinect and you've got kids running around who have a love for the adventures of Luke Skywalker and co, then you may want to check this one out.

Kinect Star Wars est un petit titre casual assez divertissant, ni plus ni moins. Plutôt basique dans tout ce qu'il entreprend, il parvient toutefois à maintenir le joueur devant son téléviseur grâce à son ambiance décalée et ses séquences inspirées des moments clés de la célèbre saga cinématographique. Pas très profond mais pas pourri non plus, le jeu contentera sans aucun doute les possesseurs de Kinect qui ne voient pas en Star Wars une sorte de monstre sacré auquel on n'a pas le droit de toucher. A essayer sans œillères.

When taking the sum of all parts, Kinect Star Wars is average at best. Although the game has some solid presentation, the control is so hit and miss that ones experience can be quite troublesome and frustrating at times. I do admit there are some very intriguing mini-games included in this package, but yet there are also some that just don’t make the cut. Given that the game was announced over 22 months ago, you’d hope that a game based on the Star Wars franchise would offer up a memorable experience, but unfortunately Kinect Star Wars misses the mark in this area, and it may only vaguely interest die hard fans of the franchise, but even they may somewhat hard pressed to find the good in it.

If you’re a longtime fan who’s been waiting for a game that’ll let you live out your Star Wars fantasies then the wait is far from over. Kinect Star Wars, with all its control and polish issues, has very limited appeal for an adult audience. Kids will likely find more enjoyment out of it, even the absurd dancing mode, but ultimately its more of a Star Wars-themed set of mediocre mini-games than the jedi epic fans are dying for.

Kinect Star Wars is another in a long list of Kinect titles that just doesn’t cut it. Its unresponsive controls, lack of depth and short-lived gaming experiences do little to cater for any audience. Quite why Microsoft backed it so much is still a mystery; it’s a title that they probably should have sent out to die alone a long time ago. I guess, in this instance…Hoth is the gaming world, Luke Skywalker is Kinect Star Wars; Microsoft is Han Solo; and their advertising budget is the corpse of a tauntaun; because it won’t be the quality of gameplay that saves Kinect Star Wars. It’ll be the name and the marketing. It’s hardly a great advert for Kinect.
