Parents need to know that Kinect Star Wars is an Xbox 360 game that requires Microsoft's motion- and sound-sensing Kinect peripheral, sold separately. Its five modes have players fighting with a lightsaber, destroying cities as a monster, racing pods, and dancing. Violence is frequent but fantastical. The constant combat combines with suggestively dressed females and some mild profanity to make this game potentially unsuitable for some younger Star Wars fans. Parents should also note that this is a very active game, and that even short sessions will leave players sweaty and breathing heavily.
Kids can learn healthy body movements and get exercise in this motion-controlled action game. They'll swing their arms to slash with their virtual lightsaber, jump in place to leap behind enemies, gallop like an ape to make their Rancor monster run, and even engage in a little modern dancing, all of which results in a good cardiovascular workout. They'll also need to develop strategies to defeat their enemies, use logic to overcome obstacles, and can meet challenges with friends. Kids will be highly physical using The Force, but Kinect Star Wars doesn’t teach about fitness.
