    My 9 year old loves this game. He’s been playing it non-stop since he got it for Easter. However, he won’t use the galactic dance mode.

  • Russell Gorall

    Yikes. I would think MS would want to pretend this game never happened.

    • Boe2

      I saw a video review of this game. I facepalmed so hard I smacked myself in the face.

  • Synthetic Generation

    Lol, it was a pretty terrible game to begin with.

    • SomeRandomJerk

      I have a hard time imagining this game is worse than the Force Unleashed.

  • SomeRandomJerk

    A little bit late, but sure why not?

    Feels good to know that this was the game MS put all that time and money into, I heard they did break a personal record when it came to employing people to work at the same game at the same time.
    And it failed… Maybe it’s time Ms realises that it’s still xbox, not Wii, they’re selling, and that it’s teen to adults, not kids, who prefer the console. Truth to say MS, in order to be able to sell this kind of showelware, you need to make the 360 very cheap, on par with what the Ps2 did cost, otherwise it’s just to much for the casual familys.
    Either lower the price, or focus more on your own IPs like Halo, Freelancer (needs a sequel btw) and many more, IPs that we xbox users will buy and enjoy.

    • SomeRandomJerk

      Well, first off, we dont know how well Kinect Star Wars sold, and 360 sales last year proved that they dont need to drop the price, or release new games. We’re too far late in this generation to be seeing new properties, if theyre being worked on, theyre undoubtedly being developed for the next xbox.

      Failed? Kinect Star Wars was the number 1 game worldwide on the all
      formats chart for 2 weeks and is still in the top 10. It’s on track to
      become at least the 2nd best selling Star Wars game on the Xbox 360
      (definitely well over 1 million, possibly over 2 million) and the 3rd
      best selling Star Wars game of this generation behind Lego Star Wars:
      The Complete Saga on the Wii and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on the
      Xbox 360. How is that a failure?

  • Jimmy Rustler

    You’d think they’d have put this up on Friday.

  • Col Hartman

    This game is much worse than Force Unleashed.

  • Eric Starr

    The game really isn’t as bad as the reviews make it out to be. I mean sure it’s not “THE” Star Wars experience fans have wanted but it’s a fun little game. I’d have to agree that it’s not worth full price though.

  • Russell Gorall

    I played the demo and it made me buy the game. Just kidding.
