Kinect Star Wars
The Force is kind of weak in this one (but there).
As an hardcore Star Wars fan, I must repeat what many have said before me: WE WANT STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT III. I haven't played much Republic Commando, so I can't say I want Republic Commando 2 (yet). As for KOTOR, there's already Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG coming out soon, and I do believe it's going to be epic. The $60 I've put in demand that, as does the financial stability of LucasArts, which will go bankcrupt if this is not successful. As for Kinect Star Wars, as a huge Star Wars fan, I know I will still like it, as I like every Star Wars game I've played, so that's not saying too much right there. It looks fun and for all ages, though more kid-friendly than anything. I tried looking online, and I couldn't find anything relating to being able to play it with a controller as well, which is an option available for Child of Eden. I do see a lot of potential here, though (with Kinect). You stay more active while playing, and you can actually do force moves the way you seem them in movies, which I've always wanted to do in a game. However, I do think it would be somewhat weird to be twirling around a non-existent lightsaber, but that's just something small. I'm definitely getting this game seeing as I was able to pre-order the Star Wars Xbox 360 Kinect Bundle (around $484 including the tax, $450 without), and this game comes with that system, as does Kinect Adventures and a white Kinect, a custom limited edition R2-D2 Xbox 360 with a C-3PO-style controller and a 320GB hard drive. If you can afford that, I recommend you save up for it instead, and you'll still get this game. I've pre-ordered it and I pay little by little every week to pay it all off as I work. By the time it's released (12/30/2011), it should be paid in full, and if you can't afford it in the end and you've already pre-ordered, you can always cancel that pre-order and get your money back.
Great game! Short campaign.
This game is an excellent one! it uses not only the kinect in combat, but in other game types, such as the dance mode. This game is the best one out for kinect yet! The kinect follows your movements, its not like other ones where you have to do specific motions, you just slice and dice with your hands and the lightsaber follows. My only complain is that the campaign is too short. They should've gone with more missions but the missions present were fun and a challenge. There are a lot of other game types though but the campaign is what i mainly got the game for so i was disappointed. The dance mode is so much fun though, and all the parodies of great songs are awesome and hilarious. Other game types include raincor going around and destroying stuff, pod racing, and i think one more but i cant remeber right now. Overall, this game is a really good one for all ages, yes, even younger kids though the rating is "T". I recommend this to all who love, and those who don"t love, star wars and to those who want a fun, exciting, and moderately challenging game!
One of the much better Kinect games!
After all the mixed criticism about this game, I was a little worried about buying it. Turns out, this game is actually really good. Playing as a jedi was extremely good, and using a lightsaber and the force is very cool although at times there is a small lag, but nothing too big. Riding a speeder bike and fighting in space is awesome, but its actually really easy. Lightsaber Dueling is something I heard was lame but its actually more fun than I thought and though its not at all the best thing about the game its pretty cool. Dancing though very weird is SO fun taking the moves from dance central and giving it that star wars twist was so funny. Podracing might be one of the best modes, the controls work great, the story is pretty charming, and though with few the tracks for each planet are awesome. And lastly playing as a rancor is cool BUT some of the controls can get pretty wonky but its still a decent mode. On another note, the graphics r a mix cause very often it looks beautiful or even cintematic, but other times its just sad when it looks just a small amount above the level of TOR. Still overall, there is alot to do in this game for a kinect game, and every mode has something fun to offer, and for that it makes a very good kinect game. (P.S though im giving this game a 9 Im just doing that to be nice cause if I could I would give it a 8.5).
I have very high hopes for this game and i believe this will be a success like force unleashed. Just let it get time. Many people were at the comic con and E3 and stuff like that and said "This game looks like its terrible because you have to say light saber on!" and i believe that if it was terrible at E3 then Lucas Arts will note those fans and improve it! Is the game out yet? NO so why are people saying its terrible when its still changing into a better game which other people haven't played yet. I say wait till its out and then judge it, but lets hope its a good game. I'm not saying its a good game but lets look and see what it becomes shall we?
star wars fan favorite
this game is for a lack of a better word AWSOME! this game has blown my mind i thought it wouldnt be that to terribly great from so many negitive comments iv heard about it and well i love star wars and i just had to pre order this thing and when i picked it up and started playing it became so addicting i almost didnt want to stop but eventually my arms started to get alittle sore but still its not like u can play any kinect game and not get sore in one way or another but still this is a really good kinect game for those who like motion control games and star wars its great for the whole family!
I think that this is really a great game for anyone that doesn't mind getting up and moving around a little. But I think that the jedi part was a little short but still a lot of fun and I also thought that the pod racer took a little getting used to but after you got used to it it was a lot of fun
Not going to be a hit...
I don't want to say too much cause, it seems I always get voted down when I give a bad preview, but if you look at my previews they are pretty accurate with the releases they coordinate to. On another note, this game is going to be another kinect FAIL! I have watched enough HANDS ON gameplay videos to know, this game is going to have bad response to your actions, and you won't be freestyling with your lightsaber as much as you think you'll be able to. Anyone remember when Fighters Uncaged came out? Pretty much what this game is going to be. I'm sorry, I'm just as big of a Star Wars fan as much as the next guy, but I will not be supporting this game. Whatever happened to the "Jedi Knight" series? I loved that game, how you actually controlled the actions of your lightsaber, not just random swinging... Video games have gone way downhill as far as gameplay...
A reason to get Kinect
I don't have Kinect yet, but I love Star Wars and there will be other titles in the future I will play that incorporate Kinect. It's about time I got Kinect, and then I'll get this and Mass Effect 3, and use the voice controls being added to that. This game does look like it needs a little work, but otherwise it's coming along nicely.
One of the new reasons to get Kinect
it looks great. i see the game being alot of hack and slash and it will probably get very repetitve and boring...buuuuut its STAR WARS!!! your a freackin JEDI!!!! the E3 demo was a little delayed in the movements but that could be a early demo and it could be fixed which i hope it is but i dont think it will be a big problem if its you actually playing
Excited and Delighted
I'm thrilled they're coming out with this and already have plans on pre-ordering my special edition copy! The experience alone will be worth the money, but I have a good feeling about this game and will remain hopeful that it will meet my expectations.
That being said... I want more good Star Wars games like Old Republic, now THAT game rocked so flippin' hard it nearly blew my face off when I first got it and I STILL play it to this day. :3 Wonder when they'll give us some more of that.
