    I’m somewhat surprised that they’re as high as that!

    They’ve got it on the demo pod in my local GAME, but I daren’t play it.

    First review I read was VentureBeat’s. Read more like a 30 than 70…. Looks like it is going to get a pasting but that, sadly, is no surprise after the lacklustre previews.

    This could do more damage than good for Kinect tbh.

    @2 You do know that these days most of the reviewing sites/magazines are getting payed to buff up the games’ scores don’t you?

    Everyone involved in the making of this game should be ashamed.

    1. It’s ‘paid’.
    2. That’s bollocks.

    They arent paid off, but a game really has to be literally broken to score under a 7 from most sites. So whilst the reviews i’ve glanced over do make mention of the controls being unresponsive, the game is still perfectly functional; 7.

    8/10

    Please read the review before you bash the score as it’s fully justified :)

    i ain’t no reviewer but i got this game on Thursday afternoon, played it for a good hour or two … put it into it’s box, launched a website http://www.ebay.co.uk and stuck it on there.

    It wasn’t very good nor were the Kinect controls responsive, hell … i would even call it broken. Not a bad £8.40 spent though i suppose, i’ll make a good £20 profit on it hopefully.

    Even after horrible presentations and bad early buzz MS should have spent much more advertising this.
    A game like this could have sold millions if marketed towards to correct audience. Those people don’t care about internet buzz or review scores.

    having experienced kinect, move and wii I honestly believe motion control gaming at the moment is by far the least enjoyable option compared to a normal controller. kinect was one of the worst gifts i have ever got, a mundane joyless device which even the kids didnt like.

    what a waste, lucasarts you are without question the worst developer/publisher this generation, take a bow.

    Kinect Star Wars may not be among the best Star Wars Adaptions but nonetheless there is a whole lot of fun to find in the rich diverse pool of possibilities. Above all else the coop-mode is quite entertaining.
