In a nutshell… it’s Star Wars, adapted for Kinect. Gameplay modes include combat, racing, dancing and more. That said, there are way too many non-action story sequences you’re forced to sit through – which is silly, given the nature of the console. Kinect is all about movement. But the best Kinect games are those that centre around the Kinect action console, rather than Kinect-adapted versions of existing titles.
Gameplay is… responsive and smooth and the visuals are impressive, as you’d expect from Lucas Arts.
Buy it for… Kids and/or the grandparents, but not anyone in between. For everyone else, a few minutes with it will probably burn through the novelty factor.
