Excerpt: “ Há muito tempo, numa galáxia muito distante . . . “ Foi este o grande tema de abertura de uma das mais fabulosas e conhecidas séries de ficção científica criado pelo génio George Lucas. O primerio filme da série apareceu no longínquo ano de 1977 quando ainda nem se sabia o que viria a [...
Summary: Following a few ramshackle E3 presentations, expectations for Kinect Star Wars were tempered at best. After footage of the game's Galactic Dance Off mode, featuring a dancing Han Solo at the carbonite pit, hit YouTube, these expectations turned from "low" to "the deathblow for the entire Star Wars franchise." There's certainly more to Kinect Star Wars than a mere generic collection of mini-games, but is really the manifestation of Naga Sadow's wrath for motion gaming?
Excerpt: Star Wars geeks drooled over the idea of a Stars Wars game on the Wii. They were let down by what they got. Then they saw a ray of light with the Kinect on the Xbox 360. Imagine swinging your arm around like you were holding a light saber with one arm, and throwing force powers with the other hand. The question asked is this: "does Kinect Star Wars give those fan boys what they want?
Excerpt: I’d like to consider myself a pretty hardcore Star Wars fan. While I may not get dressed up like a Stormtrooper and my slave Leia outfit is strictly for home use, I do have Star Wars tattoos! Come on, that’s pretty hardcore, right? It’s always a nice feeling when someone gets it. However, I’m the first to admit my supreme disappointment with almost everything to come out of Skywalker Ranch since the second half of Return of the Jedi.
Excerpt: As any self-respecting Jedi wannabe can tell you, a one-to-one motion-control lightsaber game has been the big dream ever since the Wii was first announced. Now, with Kinect Star Wars, the fantasy has become a reality – and while perfection is still in a galaxy far, far away, this game shouldn’t be relegated to the trash compactor. There’s much more here than just swinging a lightsaber and lifting things with your mind.
Pros: Four fully-realized minigames, The precise Kinect controls outside of Jedi Destiny, The love that went into the Galactic Dance Off mode
Cons: The Jedi action disappoints, Last gen visuals, Sore arms from podracing
Excerpt: "I find your lack of control disturbing" Kinect Star Wars gives players a reason to finally use their Kinect system in the way it was designed to be used, albeit in a frustrating and often unresponsive way. The game offers you five major gameplay modes for you to choose from. The main story quest is titled Jedi Destiny: Dark Side Rising, and is the predominant mode in Kinect Star Wars.
For sci-fi fans it's fun and physical but inconsistent.

Summary: Parents need to know that Kinect Star Wars is an Xbox 360 game that requires Microsoft's motion- and sound-sensing Kinect peripheral, sold separately. Its five modes have players fighting with a lightsaber, destroying cities as a monster, racing pods, and dancing. Violence is frequent but fantastical. The constant combat combines with suggestively dressed females and some mild profanity to make this game potentially unsuitable for some younger Star Wars fans.
Excerpt: By now you've probably heard all about Kinect Star Wars . You've heard about the delays, the Rancor..the dancing. You've probably also heard about how nearly everyone who's played it has been worried that it's going to disappoint anyone with a love for one of the world's most beloved franchises. It can't be that bad can it?
Summary: A mildly disappointing game, which makes it a massive success compared to the expectations. At times amusing and goofy, the game is not for you. It’s for your kids, if you have any, and if you don’t have any, just accept that it’s for somebody’s kids.
