1.0 out of 5 stars A Complete Mess; Unplayable for Lefties November 22, 2010
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Kinect is a very new system and finding interesting ways to use it remains a challenge. Mini game collections are in no short supply this early in the peripheral's life and at least the premise is sound. Execution is key. I think Dance Central and, to a lesser extent, Kinect Sports got it right, or perhaps right enough. Games like Sonic Free Riders demonstrated how a potentially good game can be ruined by difficult controls.

Then there's Game Party in Motion (GPiM). I'm not familiar with WB making decent games, but I nonetheless had hopes that GPiM could provide some good old fashioned entertainment. It has an impressive lineup of games including darts, horseshoes, and skee ball. The menu system/navigation went for simplicity and is fairly easy to work through once you get the hang of activating the confirm and cancel commands. To confirm, you hold your right hand around waist level without extending the arm. You can put your hand directly off to the side, a little in front of your or behind you. Cancel is the same with the left hand; if you had to extend your arm, it would conflict with the system pause, so this slightly odd position is to maintain consistency which is NOT itself a bad thing. More on that in a bit.

The tracking in the minigames ranges from passable to infuriatingly awful. In the bean bag toss, for instance, no amount of lateral throwing motion made the bags travel anywhere off of dead center and I could not for the life of me find any correlation between the speed of my throw and the distance traveled by the bag. It's just too easy to throw straight in the precision games and too hard to get the distance/power right. Games like the arcade style basketball shooting don't recognize certain throwing motions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money!!! Avoid! November 21, 2010
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the first dud I've come across for the Kinect. The interface is garbage and the motion control is horrible. 2players is a pain, and has to be set up everytime you change games. Oh and the players can't leave the field of play even when it's not their turn or you'll send the sdupit game into fits. This is a very poor game design and set up (NOT A KINECT ISSUE). Again due not buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Epic Fail November 25, 2010
By Douglas
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow I have really liked the work out games, the sports games, and the adventure game so for for Kinect. But this one ... what an epic fail! This game is the one that will seldomly get played. Thank God they didn't bundle it with the Kinect or I would have taken it back to the store the day I got it. Horrible motion tracking and control during game play, it's at a level far below any of the other Kinect games. You will be disappointed if you buy this. I really had high hopes because I wanted to play beer pong and bean bag toss with my friends when we partied at my place. It has a lot of games but they are all so frustrating to control.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really, really bad. November 25, 2010
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Everything written here is true, this game is horrific. I hope to save one person from making the terrible mistake that I did. Everything about this game is just wrong. That is all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just Awful November 25, 2010
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The other posts are not exaggerations, this game is just awful! We had so much fun with Kinect Adventures that came with the Kinect. It is very responsive and fun!
Game Party: In Motion however, is a disaster. I really hope nobody tries this game as their introduction to the Kinect. This game should have never made it to market!
When navigating through menus, there is no visual cue to tell you where your hand is. You are just supposed to put your right hand by your right hip, but kind of forward, no back, out, forward... ARGH! Every mini game was basically the same motion, over-hand or under-hand. It was so glitchy and hard to throw the darts or shoot the ball.
Two player is a joke. You have to navigate around in the menus which you instantly hate because of the lack of visual cues. You both have to be in front of the Kinect at all times. Finally after stepping all over each other trying to play, the game just glitched out. It couldn't tell who was who, and at that point we couldn't wait to turn the game off.
I am so glad that we only rented this game and I can return it and be rid of it.
Seriously, I am very disappointed. I hope I don't come across a game this poorly made again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Major disappointment November 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I had promise for this game when I first heard about it - I guess because I was expecting it to be similar to Kinect Sports but featuring arcade-type games. Sadly I found out the hard way how bad this game is. This will teach me to never preorder games and to wait on other reviews before making a purchasing decision. The game had promise, and it would be pretty fun if the controls weren't so horrible. The more I played the more ticked off I got at the controls. The Beer Pong game was horrible beyond words - the ball would never throw! I flung my arms and did what it told me to do and yet the ball would just jerk in the air without throwing...until I laid my arm down and then it decided to roll into the cups.

The other thing which made no sense was having to use your body position to lay down the cue ball in Pool. You actually had to move and stand in the area you want the ball to be placed, and then you lift your right arm up to "ok" the position - makes for a nice balancing act. Not only would it be easier to just place it with your left hand maybe, but the placement is so sensitive that the ball will jump to the other side of the table if you move an inch. Then you hit the ball by moving your arm back and finally forward (which was inaccurate and would not hit correctly). Those are just some of the highlights of crap within the game.

Overall, this is basically a crappy Wii port which might be better suited for Wii since nearly all the games require you to just move your arm in one motion. Since the ball would sometimes not throw correctly in some games it might be better to have a button in order to release the ball. I could go on, but what's the point...you all get the hint.
