Summary: I wish I would have known that a online download was going to be needed before I bought the product. We do not have the xbox hooked up to the internet. The game does not work with out a download update. So now it just sits. The game maybe fun but we do not know.
Summary: I was jacked to get this...just bought a Kinect and big big Star Wars Fan. Was really hoping to move around, swing lightsaber like a Jedi and kick /punch/ jump my way through battles. Wrong. The battles, I was getting beat up left and right, yet, thru the practice, I did great. Visually, it was AWESOME.
Summary: most of us bought this game to use the lightsaber. truth be told, that aspect of the game is a letdown. i have a collection of other kinect games so i know pretty much what to expect for responsiveness, and was hoping with the amount of time put into development and the big names behind this game, it would be a step forward. really though, use of the lightsaber is not very satisfying. you really have no control, other than to swing your arm back and forth like a maniac.
Above average... almost good. Not even close to great

Summary: Honestly, the dancing is the most responsive and probably the most worked on part of this game. Unfortunately, I would have to say probably the most fun part too. Had they spent the energy they put into the dancing portion into the main stories responsiveness/saber fighting/force portions of the game I think it could have been a great game. I don't think people buy this for dancing, but it sure feels like lucas arts spent most of their time on this one section.
Summary: I'm a huge Star Wars fan and was so looking forward to "Star Wars Kinect." I was a little disappointed with the responsiveness of the game to my movements, especially with lightsaber duels. The characters don't mimic my movements at all. When I want to attack with a lightsaber, I swing my arm wildly until my character attacks. That's about it. This should really be the best part of "Star Wars Kinect." It's not.
Summary: We had high hopes for Star Wars, but in the end, the game is good, not great. The one great thing is using The Force. If you've always wanted to move objects with your hands, this is the game. A lot of the lightsaber action is not as sensitive as you would want it to be. The game starts out slow, but the more you play, the more battles you get into and the more Force you can use.
Summary: Score: 6.25 / 10 Kinect Star Wars Xbox 360 Kinect Developer : Terminal Reality Publisher : Microsoft Release Date : April 3rd, 2012 Pros: Multiple game modes offer different styles of gameplay Star Wars license grants authentic sound Hop in, hop out co-operative multiplayer for all features Plenty of unlocks and varying difficulties Cons: Technical issues hold the Jedi mode back from any real greatness Rough textures and little visual appeal General control for each mode...
Summary: This game was recently given to me as a gift. I knew that the people who bought it for me make very little money so I tried to be as polite as possible. My father and I somehow played the first 2 levels in front of them without killing ourselves. Afterwards I tried out the Rancore Rampage mini-game which was entertaining but did not control well at all. Luckily the podracing in it is perfect. I have to say that podracing itself may be worth 60$.
