Kinect Star Wars Trailer Details Game Modes

Posted on March 19, 2012 AT 07:13am

THE BUZZ: Microsoft has released a new trailer for Kinect Star Wars, detailing the various modes that will be available to play when the title releases next month.

EGM’s TAKE: Pod Racing is OK, the Jedi battles look good, even being a Rancor looks like fun, but we just can’t get past that damn dance mode. It should have no place in a Star Wars game, and the version of YMCA about being in the Empire really makes us sad. Is this really what Star Wars has become? It seems this is what the Kinect has reduced game development to. Instead of being an epic Star Wars adventure with lightsabers and force powers, someone had to throw in a bunch of mini-games just to use the tech.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
