A Preview of Kinect Star Wars – Don’t underestimate the power of the Force

This week UWHS got to spend some time with Microsoft hearing all about the forthcoming Kinect Star Wars and getting to play it, and it was fun!

UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 007

We got to play on all the levels in the game, Jedi Destiny: Dark Side Rising, Podracing, Rancor Rampage, Galactic Dance Off and Duels of Fate.

Each one is different and brings it own challenges, and fun. For example it is a lot fun controlling a podracer and racing around the track using only your body, and the sheer amusement you get out of smashing up buildings and eating people as a Rancor cannot be beaten. And yes, ok, there is the Galactic Dance Off as well. It feels a little strange at first, but it’s actually quite fun, and I can certainly see the younger players enjoying that.

And the Duels of Fate levels – wow, being able to have a light sabre battle with Darth Vader himself it just fantastic. What I wouldn’t have given for this game back when I was a kid when Star Wars first came out!

I even played it in 3D (which usually I am not a fan of) but in this case the 3D works really well and really makes you feel that you in the game.
