Star Wars + Kinect = AWESOME EWOKS! Right? Actually, maybe not. It's easy to be mega-cynical about Kinect games, but that's because Microsoft's black shiny thing that lives in front of our telly still hasn't proven itself as anything other than a gimmick box yet. And this trailer for the Star Wars Kinect game just makes playing a Star Wars game look like a lot of unnecessary huff and puff. We could keep whining like ungrateful man-babies, but you might as well have a look for yourself:
Admittedly it doesn't look like its going to be targeted at grown men, but can anyone think of a Star Wars game that would have been worth this much energy expenditure? Imagine how even more less fun Force Unleashed II would've been if you had to play the entire thing standing up. Of course, we'll professionally reserve complete judgement until we've tried it ourselves. All we're saying is that we doubt we'll be booking the Max Rebo Band for the launch party.
There'll probably be more on Star Wars Kinect at the Microsoft conference. Which is happening later today (9am US/5pm UK). We'll be streaming it LIVE. So, like, watch it on GamesRadar.
