If you like the thought of Boba Fett, Darth Vader and Han Solo dancing, then chances are you've already purchased Kinect Star Wars. But if you're still on the fence, you can check out the Kinect Star Wars demo, which is now available to download from the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Weighing in at 1.97GB, the demo gives you the opportunity to sample the motion controlled Star Wars title, which features pod racing, Jedi training, lightsaber wielding, Rancor-based destruction, starfighter piloting and more. To find out what we made of it all, you can check out our Kinect Star Wars review here.

Or you can just download the demo and make your own mind up. Add the Kinect Star Wars demo to your download queue here. Now here's a video of Han Solo dancing. It's sacrilege, I tells ya! Sacrilege!

What the fuck did I just watch. Good job on raping Star Wars.
What the fuck did they smoke? Why the fuck did they do a Star Wars game where you dance? I can't imagine Star Wars fans wanting this.
I really hope with a passion that this game does bad sales wise.

@6 Honestly Star Wars died to me along time ago, the series is a joke of what it used to be as you can see in the video. My advice for anyone wanting a good Sc-Fi series is to turn to Star Trek. No I'm not talking about that J.J. Abrams Abortion, I'm talking about Next Generation or original Star Trek.

HAN FIRED FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Taste is subjective. First off, I do not beleive the Star Trek movie was that terrible. It was pretty good, actually. Secondly, even people who are fans of the original classic Trek or TNG will tell you that it was only every other movie that was really good. The Motion Picture wasn't very good, Khan rocked, Search for Spock was meh, Voyage Home was funny, etc etc.

Then look at TNG. High five First Contact. Ehhhhh on Generations. Wtf Insurrection and Nemesis.

And if calling things a joke of a series means counting the video games as part of said series (since you're using the above game as an example), whens the last time we got a blockbuster Star Trek game. I loved the 25th Anniversary adventure one and I think a space RTS I played once, but that was it. Star Wars... its had Tie Fighter, Battlefront 1 and 2, Rogue Squadron, Xwing, Shadows of the Empire, Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2, Jedi Knight, Dark Forces, Force Unleashed, etc etc etc etc

Don't bring games into this if you're recommending themed science fiction universes to other people. Star Trek might have a few better movies, but Star Wars has a staggering amount of good games in comparison. Not being mean, just saying, cut Star Wars some slack. ;)

@8 It was #1 on the UK chart for two straight weeks a bit ago, so unfortunately it probably sold pretty well.

Actually the sales are really good for the game. It has sold over 640,000 units and it is destined to be a million seller.


It's the 4th best game sold in the UK for the week ending on April 28th

Anyone seen the commercials for the game? It talks about how you can finally do everything you wanted in the Star Wars universe, and shows a variety of lightsaber duels, pod racing, Rancor smashing, but leaves out the dancing.

I'm loving the fact that it was the x360a guys that actually recorded themselves playing it. You've got moves! Gonna get the demo for this, just for the dancing alone, hopefully get to dance as C-3PO, seeing as he is the campest droid in the Galaxy!

It is already one of worst games ever made so I wish and wish LucasArts bring Star Wars Battlefront 3 or Republic Commando 2. God damned LucasArts we been await for longer time for those franchises rather then Kinect title or disappointed The Force Unleashed series.


LucasArts, please read fans and myself that words!!!

@13 I'm not judging Star Wars on a single game or even the Children's TV series that is out now. I'm saying Star Wars has died to me because George Lucas has tweaked & distorted what it used to be so much. First the Force was energy that could be manipulated, then it's bacteria now it's full blown magic. He constantly changes what the original fans loved as three amazing movies into a childish joke. Lucas has some weird problem that he needs every child any were to approve what he does. Yes Star Wars has had more "popular" games, as for the Star Trek movies & games it comes down to opinion. All I'm saying is that Star Wars is a joke of what it used to be because EVERYTHING Star Wars is now tailored for a very young audience, the same reason I don't watch Pokemon anymore I don't find children's entertainment appealing. Why? Maybe because I'm not a child & I'd like too play this game but I can't get into it because... well you saw the video.

Don't know if that is Lucas strategy, but if it is, it doesn't make sense. I think you become a fan, when you watch the movies and more, that plays in the universe expand on the universe, you grew to love. Why the fuck, would any fan of the movies want any of this cheesy bullshit, that is Kincet Star Wars, Clone Wars, ...?
Its not only, that apparently this is a bad game, it just makes fun of Star Wars, points the middle finger to all the SW fans and pisses all over the franchise. Why would any Star Wars fan want that? Some might buy the game, because it is Star Wars, but will later regret their purchase, because it rapes a universe created by some classic movies.
If they want to do a dancing game, make a fucking dancing game, but dont put the star wars label on it. You don't do Lord of the Rings racing, Harry Potter Space Battles, Pirates of the Carribean flight simulator, Rambo RTS, Alien vs. Predator pet simulator, ... so why on earth a Star Wars dancing game?
I thought, that TFU2 is a piece of shit, that doesn't do SW justice, but this takes the piss.
