E! Online’s Top 10 Games of E3 2011

Posted on June 9, 2011

E! Online has published their Top 10 Games of E3 and Kinect Star Wars made the list at #5!

5. Kinect Star Wars (360 w/Kinect) Last year, Microsoft introduced Kinect with mostly minigame titles (except for the stellar Dance Central). But they hinted at a possible light-saber wielding adventure. Now, your inner Jedi is a reality. The graphics impress, and with the Kinect's personal touch when we make that whooshing sound with our hands—well, that never gets old. Even cooler is coming face-to-face with an army of battle droids and force-pushing them up and down Naboo with simple hand gestures. Those droids had it coming. (No release date)

We're in some GREAT company on this list.
