Kinect Star Wars
This Week's UK X360 Top 20 Charts
Written By
View author's profile

Kinect Star Wars, the game with the atrocious/amazing dance mode, has executed a Jedi mind trick on the UK, entering the charts at number one and knocking FIFA Street from the top of the league in the process, a position it had held since release.

Indeed, such was Kinect Star Wars' success, that it topped not just the Xbox 360 charts, but the multi-format charts. That's no mean feat for an exclusive.

Elsewhere, there was relatively little change. Forza 4 slipped out of the top ten for the first time in what feels like an age, while Arkham City, WWE '12, SF X Tekken, Spyro's Adventure and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning all make re-entries.

@ #5

Good! Reviews are subjective and mostly muddy the waters anyway.

You guys may laugh about it doing well, but IMO Kinect Star Wars is one of the most enjoyable Kinect games. If you go into it with an open mind and a sense of humor, it offers a wide variety of gameplay and great production values - plus local co-op. I know a lot of reviewers held a grudge against this one, but my review at Co-Optimus is much more positive.

The sad thing is that star wars is only first because of its name, not its gameplay :(

Witcher 2 will steal everything into top first charts by next week so Microsoft can be happy for one week before Witcher 2 breaks Kinect Star Wars.

I hope Star Wars Battlefront 3 rumours to be real as well bring back SW Republic Commando or bring back SW Knights of the Old Republic on consoles or other Star Wars Action RPG by BioWare!!!

Kinect Star Wars seemed to be a bit cheaper than other new releases when I was wondering round town on Sunday: £27 quid in Asda, £29 in Blockbuster. Except if you went to Game. Who wanted £40 for it lol.

I'm glad for star wars being first. But I'm most surprised that Batman is holding on really well

this is SALES not gameplay, the staff should atleast make that known without me having to go to the site and navagate to the article to find out thats what they're refering too by seeing them point out "all prices" above the list and not a UK variant of MajorNelson's top 20 chart

@15 I live in America and I just bought All-Pro Football 2k8. I don't think it has to do with the country.

OT: Good to see some of those 'older' games on the list still. It's also nice to see multiple Kinect titles up there.

Good job.. Nice to see a Kinect title at the top instead of generic shooter... Even if it is "Star Wars"..

I guarantee that at least 95% of people commenting how shitty SW Kinect is have never played it. I played it at a friend's over the weekend and while it's nowhere near perfect, it's generally fun and works well. People love to bash on Kinect because it's not "core" enough... losers. Guess what, there are crappy "core" games made for controller also. Well made Kinect games are tons of fun - Gunstringer, Child of Eden, Dance Central, just to name a few others.
