The concept for the game sounds awesome. The practice... not so much. Playing as a rancor, okay. What else is there? A story mode where you're a jedi padwan? Great. But the movement detection for this is rather shoddy. Rather then being fun, all you end up doing is flailing randomly. Anything else? Sure, there's a Dance Dance Revolution type game mode.
Well, maybe not Dance Dance Revolution. You aren't hot stepping on colored circles after all. Instead you're lead through actual dances. This part of the game is fun, surprisingly enough. This part has flawless detection too. It's just... Uhm... Why buy Star Wars Kinect when there's dozens of other dancing games that don't pretend to something else?
My entire family enjoyed this game from grandma to our youngest 6yr old. The game took a little time to learn and after that it was pure fun doing jedi stuff (and eating people with Rancor beasts meant a LOT of laughs!)
We loved the game as a family event but never played it as a single player game so I can offer no opinion on that.
