Kinect Star Wars is not the world's greatest new video game. I've said as much in my review.

But you should see this game's failures—and its triumphs—for yourself. Watch the video and allow me to demonstrate.

As you watch, bear in mind that this game might be lovely for little kids who have a high tolerance for waving their arms around to make things happen. I think that even little kids deserve better than a game that promises you'll be physically role-playing as a Jedi or Rancor Monster but only works crudely and clumsily.

The dancing's good, though. As I say in the video, the much-maligned dancing mode is the one aspect of the game that didn't make me focus on whether the Kinect was or wasn't working. Small victory!
