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.
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.
Excerpt: There’s a reason Kinect Star Wars was one of the first games announced for Microsoft’s motion-control device. Most fans of Lucas’ sci-fi universe would probably agree, the idea of being a badass Jedi who can Force-move objects with your bare hands just seems like a perfect, natural fit for...
Pros: + Presentation’s pretty decent overall; Galactic Dance Off mode is outlandish fun.
Cons: ? Why can’t we wield Dark Side powers? Force Choke and Force Lightning would’ve been sweet!
Conclusion: 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.
Summary: Jedi Destiny mode is is the centerpiece of Kinect Star Wars , in which the game's many development teams take a shoddy story starring an unknown, unspeaking Jedi, tack on motion controls and then hide in a corner and stand very still, terrified that you'll notice they forgot to design a game to...
Excerpt: Kinect Star Wars is the game that old Star Wars fans fear the most. Luckily, for LucasArts, they don’t really seem to care about the relatively small number of original trilogy fans who bemoan anything new to their once-beloved galaxy far, far away.
Pros: Rancor Rampage is enjoyable and could be great for parties., The dancing works as well as Kinect dancing always works., Kids will love the art style and forgiving controls.
Cons: Controls are slow, laggy and often not translated accurately enough., The narrative in the story mode isn’t interesting enough., Some odd control choices make Podracing barely playable at times., It makes lightsabers feel slow, boring and awkward.
Summary: C'est sur l'un des porte-étendard de l'époque où Kinect s'appelait encore Natal que nous posons aujourd'hui nos mains. Ou plutôt notre corps. En ces temps de disette motion gamingesque, accueillir un grand nom comme celui de Star Wars fait naitre en nous une furieuse envie de croire encore dans le...
Pros: Bonne reconnaissance de mouvement, Environnement sonore excellent, Menus bien pensés, Grande variété d'actions et de types de jeu
Cons: Mode histoire extrêmement court..., Très facile, Graphiquement moyen, ... souvent confus, parfois mal rythmé
