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: 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 controller-less gaming. And yet, sadly, there’s nothing natural about Kinect Star Wars .
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. 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.
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. Star Wars has gone in another direction and it is still incredibly popular, albeit to a different crowd.
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 pouvoir de la force de Kinect.
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
