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!
