GAME TITLE: Star Wars Kinect
GENRE: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Star Wars Kinect has been a long awaited games for fans who love the Saga, it comes bundled with the Star Wars Xbox Edition
SINGLEPLAYER: [ score 4 ]
Story mode was a bit dissappointing as the game feels like it was rushed. There were bits of the storyline which seems like it doesnt fit in with the Star Wars scenario. It seemed very short as the storyline was designed to have a second game coming soon.
It was however fun as it is the first game I have played that fully uses the Kinect for the Star Wars games I have played. It does show you some cool tricks and have hours of fun.
MULTIPLAYER: [ score 7 ]
Multiplayer is very fun in this game, my friend and I had some great saber battles. The only downside to this was the Kinect sometimes took a few longer seconds to detect our movements thus giving the other opponent a chance for killing blows.
The Dance Cantina however was fun as you can get the whole family into the scene and play along. It has a great family feel to this game and looks to be designed more for a maily audience rather than a serios gamer.
GRAPHIC QUALITY: [ score 5 ]
The Graphics looked like it was made in 2005, there were broken textures, frame rates were dropping and dialogue was out of time with the animation. I would compare it to the Wii’s graphics as it does look rushed for its release date.
However the graphics for the mini games such as the Pod Racer and also the Cantina Dance looks great.
SOUND QUALITY: [ score 7 ]
Sounds from the game sounded like you were watching at the movies. There were some really new sounds I have not heard before, the dialogues are original and have not heard from before. I noticed that the quality was a bit slow at times during intense battle scenes.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: [ 23/40 ]
Overall I did enjoy this game, it needed a bit more time to polish up a few things however the mini games makes up for this such as the Pod Racer and the Cantina Dancing Game. It is definitely designed to be a family game in my case as it does seem to have that general feeling and none of the content seemed to have been extreme.
