Don't waste your money. Rental alert.
on December 7, 2011
My 6 year old is a huge fan of previous FGN games, and the TV show...so, this should have been all awesome. But it is not.
First, the Kinect controls are the worst I have ever experienced. We spent about 10 minutes trying to get the game to recognize us. Finally, after that passed we got to the game experience and it was terrible. Most kinect games are a little laggy, but this was aweful. Wow.
Luckily, you can play with a standard control. So we did.
The good news is that the games when played with a standard controller are not bad. The bad news is that once you've played through the games there is no reason to ever play them again. They are simple, simple, simple and you will not want to play this after you've played it once.
I rented this from Gamefly, and thank goodness for that. I would highly recommend the first family game night, especially Sorry Sliders. But this one is a big mistep.
