Forums - Microsoft Discussion - IGN: Kinect Star Wars REVIEW! - Is the Force strong with this one? - Now with all the scores so far!

As soon as I saw the E3 video of this game, I didn't exactly expect an AAA game.. This is the kind of game I could see myself enjoying at the arcade for a buck, but it doesn't look like the kind of software you spend 50 bucks on.

(That ok, sega4life? :P)

I never said all non motion games were single player but to a lot of people on forums it's like these games are the ones everybody calling themselves "gamers" should play.

Fifa is one good game and a good party game yes but it's one game and it doesn't appeal to everyone. Some would rather play real soccer, it's fun to kick the ball in Kinect Sports with friends and especially family. Some don't want to mimmick movements and they have games that appeal to them. This constant hating for anything casual/motion/non "hardcore" has to stop.

When I don't like a certain genre I just leave it and that's all. Do I really need to call those who have different tastes? I like forums because you can get tricks and news about videogames but now it's more bashing than discussion... boohoo devs make games for other people than me...


add COD, MarioKart, Smash BRos. hell any fighting game really. etc. Motion controllers didnt bring anything back, local multiplayer never left. Lets stop giving motion controls credit for crap it didnt do

Let's go back before motion/phone/tablet  gaming so those who don't play games still don't and the industry stays the same... thanks god those who have the power to make things advance don't have your minds.

before motion gaming people were STILL playing multiplayer games, or are you gonna say that evey game prior to this gen is was SP?? Come on, man im just answering what you said.  Which was intially that motion gaming brought the multiplayer aspect back, which is complete crap.
as for the bolded, that has nothing to do with what you orginally said, 

I said that because games today are more online multiplayer oriented or 2 players locally... not a lot of them have the ability to gather more than 2-3 people at the same time. Motion games have that ability. Even those whose turn comes next still mimmick the movements, anyway you might not understand what I mean about having fun with the whole family... anyway you may not be the target of motion games... no need to spit on it.


Now you're making up crap, I never spat on it, i just corrected your original wrong statement.  I get having fun with the whole family, but there are only so much types of games you can play in that scenario. Dance, minigame comps, the arcade sports. Nothing wrong with that, but thats just about all the Kinect and to a lesser extent motion gaming is good for IMHO and the occasional FPS/lightgun game

One thing motion gaming brought back is party multiplayer with people in the same living room. Elitists on forums seem to think only long single player experiences are relevant and able to bring fun to gaming. SWK doesn't appeal to my tastes and I will not get the game but I understand Selnor's comments. When I buy games like Mass Effect (which is my fav series this gen) I don't invite friends or play with my family, it's only me playing alone and have a blast.

Kinect games (and Wii games) have the ability to get people together and have fun while playing a video game.

video games =/= long single player session, no motion control, must appeal to single males...

There are video games for every tastes and if you don't like then just pass by.


As for SW fans, I never took this series seriously. I don't think anyone should. It's fantasy setting is perfect to make fun of itself.

I lolled so hard though, and the song was epic.

they really ought to include this song:



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

I never got my whole family to play around a COD or a game at all, previous gens. This gen is different thanks to motion gaming that is all. You can't possibly believe that motion gaming didn't brought non gamers to gaming more than previous gens... seriously, you're kidding yourself if you do. SWK may have failed it doesn't mean devs should limit themselves to dance/sports/mini games. A game like Heavy Rain would benefit from motion controls, also games like Mass Effect but it takes time to make these games  so I'll wait.

Heavy Rain already has motion controls
