I have a feeling years from now we will still be talking about how bad Star Wars Kinect is. Much like Superman 64. Heck it might even replace Superman 64 as "the" game to use when talking about how bad a game is.

Am I crazy, or did they steal the HUD from Dance Central?

I can't believe I'm even referring to a dancing HUD in a Star Wars game.

And all they needed to do was make a kinect game where I could kill bad guys (or good guys) while flailing my arms around pretending I'm wielding a lightsaber, using an occassonal force push gesture, or choke, or force lightning, and I would've been happy.  Basically Jedi Knight/Sith Lord with lightsaber and force powers via Kinect gestures.  How in the world did they screw that up?

Pretty much this. What the holy mother of fuck is wrong with you, Lucasarts?!?

Also, I'd be PISSED if I were the original actors. Talk about ruining your image.

I wonder if ANYONE involved with the making of this game ever thought that the Dance Central ripoff part was one colossal stupid joke. If they actually thought it would be a "fun" and "cool" component of the game, they need to be beaten.

I actually think it's pretty hilarious.  They even have names for the dance moves that are Star Wars references.  Lobot is a DJ.  Pretty damn funny.

I'm confused.  Is the dance mode a full fledged mode in the game?  Is it an easter egg unlock or something?  I saw the trailer playing in BestBuy but I didn't see any dancing.  Are there any reviews/impressions of the game yet?

This Star Wars Kinect dancing video looks like a direct feed, as opposed to someone pointing a camcorder at their television.  The same user has other videos of the on-rails lightsaber fighting shown off at last year's E3, so if this is a mock-up, it's a darn good one.

Reviews are out all over.  Yep, it's terrible.

59% on GameRankings.

Amusingly, Gamespot says the dance game is the best thing about it.

I'm not surprised.  I would buy it if it were a full fledged dance game for the campy value.  It makes sense since Dance Central is the only good game for Kinect.

I guess I gave up hope a long time ago of getting something awesome that the initial trailer sort of indicated.  Still no proof that a hardcore game can be done on Kinect.  Maybe the Mech game by From Software but I won't be holding my breath.

I like this snippet from Kotaku:

Quote

If you know how to use the Internet, you will have little trouble finding people who will tell you that Kinect Star Wars is a bad video game. These people are correct.


They also say the dancing is the best part of the game.

Actually, the whole review is pretty amusing.  Worth a read.

Did they not think they would sell enough copies if they focused all of their effort and talent into designing a good lightsaber combat game using the kinect?  That's all they had to do.  Instead they chose to do a collection of bad minigames.  Maybe this game was never going to be a fun, lightsaber combat game.

My guess, they started off making a serious light saber game then realized that kinect is too laggy for responsive combat and there is no clean way to deal with player movement other than making it on-rails if you don't have access to a gamepad.  So they fell back to what the Kinect does do really well, Dance Central.

Oh dear God...please tell me that is some sort of sick April Fools joke.  I figured this game would be awful, but never imagined that level of stupidity.  Unreal.

It's becoming increasingly tougher to claim being a Star Wars fan at any level after seeing ridiculousness like this.

Did you guys get this upset when Family Guy did the spoofs?  I think episode 1-3 are more atrocious than a Star Wars dance game.  At least this is not taking itself seriously.

i have just rewatched the prequel trilogy...while yes TPM and AOTC are pretty bad(especially when compared to star wars films),but ROTS is nearly on par with the original trilogy,its fucking brilliant!!..there,i have said it(again)

Watching Star Wars yesterday and i must admit,Family Guy has spoilt that film somewhat,even though i loved the spoofs when Luke and Han are defending the Millenium Falcon,i sang along like Peter did to the music...da-da-da-da-da...and "There's no life forms aboard. Imperial Officer 2: Hold your fire? What, are we paying by the laser now? Imperial Officer 1: You don't do the budget, Terry. I do."...it's all i think off when i watch those scenes now

hey,want to annoy people?...then its time for some Gifs(nabbed from Kotaku)

I'm more embarrassed at the way people are reacting to this dance stuff than anything in the game. The dance stuff is funny. Just as funny as if Jesus got off the cross and did a dance number with the two other people on crosses backing him up. People would be just as upset at that and I'd think they were silly, too. It's okay to make light of things.

so, did anyone actually pick this up?  I know my wife had this in her hands the other day and was very close to getting it for the kids.  it sounds like it might be good for a quick laugh, but I already have a game that gets the kids out flaying their arms in random motions and it only cost 800 points.  this doesn't seem like enough decent content to warrant a purchase until it hits the bargain bins.

yeah, I'm figuring in a month or so it'll be at least half price.  I should have looked to see if Gamestop had an used copy today since they have their B2G1 free sale going on.
