Catching Up With Kinect Star Wars

Posted By Mike on March 18, 2012

More videos and previews for Kinect Star Wars keep popping up and we'll start today's round-up with a look at the new "Kinect Star Wars Depth Video" from Microsoft. Besides showcasing the podracing, Jedi, dance, and rancor modes, this new video displays a bit of the starfighter mode.

Andy Robertson, from Wired's Geek Dad, provides an optimistic written preview along with the following video...

WorthPlaying.com has a nice written preview with a number of new screenshots showcasing the various game modes. We've included their conclusion excerpt below but make sure to click here for the full preview.

"There's no denying that Kinect Star Wars has been designed to appeal to casual players over hardcore gamers, but that accessibility simply means that more Star Wars fans are going to be able to enjoy the experience. Jump-in/jump-out co-op also helps ensure the game will be family friendly. You'll be able to feel the Force with this one in early April."

Finally, Chad Sapieha from TheGlobeandMail.com isn't quite as excited as some other reviewers but he also admits that motion controlled games don't necessarily excite him anyway. That being said, he has a lengthy preview stemming from his hands-on experience with the game that you can read here.

Kinect Star Wars and the Star Wars Xbox 360 Bundle are scheduled for release on April 3, 2012.
