Game looks pretty cool, and I do like the Kinect. I'm not really a "hard core" gamer, I just like to play for fun; but I don't know if Kinect Star Wars is going to be kiddish or have a more adult feel?

Thoughts? Opinions?

They only pushed this game so people would forget about it's awful E3 showing last year. This is an emphatic pass. A wasted effort with this game. Notice how it's coming out before this year's E3.

If you can watch this video and still want this game there is something wrong with you:

From the moment it was announced this was a pass.

I concur with the others. Eff Gandolf, I SHALL pass!

I think the Kinect is pretty pointless, but I have to admit that this looks like it could be pretty fun if the control isn't all over the place:

Still a pass for me though. Just wanted to point out that there is actually more to the game than a dancing Darth.

Since I found out that it is on rails - it is a pass, but the concept is cool. Also, the bundle they are selling it with (R2D2 360 and C3PO controller) is worth it.

I agree with the majority that the console and controller are cool as hell, but this game just looks horrible.

I guess I'm the first person to say I'm looking forward to it? I won't buy it until I can pick it up for under $20, (I can say the same about skyrim and amalur)... which based on your reactions shouldn't take too long.

Just how I see it. The cost of entry requires a AAA game and I just don't see any thing with said desciption.

Which also makes me wonder why haven't any "normal" games used the kinect to flare things up. I mean, have the normal remote control just about everything but throw in a few "seated" motion controls to make things funner. (not voice controls like some of these games seem to be adding). Imagine a game like the darkness where you can wave your right hand to bat away a couple of enemies psychically. I guess they fear people would be to stupid and chuck their remote rather than holding it with the other hand.

If you already have Kinect worth a play thru at some point. WOuldnt but kinect for this game though.,..

Cool... I'll take a look at it... but based on the name doesn't seem like my type of game.

Kinect Star Wars is cool on execution, I can't possibly see myself going through the effort of playing it. Pass.

Posted on Mar 16, 2012 8:44:29 AM PDT
yeah...Star Wars is stupid

Posted on Mar 16, 2012 3:58:49 PM PDT
The most disappointing thing about this game was the completely non-canon use of, "Lightsaber, ON!"

Oh, also it looks pretty bad.
