Experience Josh's Nightmares Through the Kinect Sensor

Rise of Nightmares is a true first - an unabashedly mature experience for Xbox 360 using the Kinect Sensor. Players take on the role of the well-meaning, but flawed hero, Josh. Intent on saving his faltering marriage to wife Kate, he sets off on what is intended as a romantic rail trip through Eastern Europe only see her kidnapped by a grotesque henchman. Not exactly the happy ending that was intended, he pursues but finds himself at the mercy of his target, a mad and morbidly creative scientist named Viktor, who is backed by various minions, including an army of zombie-like creations. Your goal is to survive one hellish night as you fight hand-to-hand against your enemies using the hands-free controls of Microsoft Kinect and attempt to find and free Kate.

Movement and Weapons

To survive Josh's nightmare you will need to utilize the Kinect Sensor to explore the game environments and discover the weapons needed to combat enemies. The game features dozens of diverse weapons of both the melee and slashing variety. These include everything from the standard fare of knives, axes, chainsaws and your bare hands and feet, to more gory contraptions that will rip your foes limb from limb if wielded correctly. Movement throughout the game is controllerless via the motion control capacity of the Kinect sensor, which recreates your every move whether that be running, backpedaling, side steps, balancing moves, jumps and more. The Kinect Sensor also allows for precision attacks, including punches, kicks, and blocks, as well as hacks and slashes with weapons that are also picked up using the Kinect Sensor. Adding to your horrific challenge, certain enemies may require attacks using specific weapons or combinations of weapons, and weapons are also degradable - meaning that they have a limited shelf life and must be used wisely.

The Kinect Sensor

The Kinect sensor allows you can experience gaming like never before. Easy to use and fun for everyone, the Kinect sensor utilizes revolutionary full-body tracking to put you in the center of the fun. This amazing new technology allows the sensor to recognize your body and mirror your movements in the game, making you the controller. The sensor is compatible with every Xbox 360, features a color VGA motion camera (640x480 pixel resolution @30FPS), a depth camera (640x480 pixel resolution @30FPS) and an array of 4 microphones supporting single speaker voice recognition.

Key Game Features

  • The Horror/Survival Genre Comes to Kinect - An unashamedly mature title in a sea of family-friendly offerings on Kinect for the first time, Rise of Nightmares takes you into a cinematic world of horrific blood and violence.
  • Unique Motion Controls - Punch, run, back pedal, kick, climb, balance, pick up items, and wield weapons as you use your whole body to fight the undead horde with physical brutality.
  • Melee and Slashing Weapons - Rise of Nightmares contains dozens of melee and slashing weapons that degrade over time, meaning you have to use them or lose them.
  • Explore and Investigate - Navigate through Viktor's castle with free movement control, uncover the secrets held within and delve deeper into his the mind of a madman.
  • Deep and Varied Gameplay - Master the different fighting styles and various weapons, stealthy sneaking and puzzle-solving. Will you fall into the mansion's traps or lure the undead into one of your own?
  • A Complete Experience - A full, cinematic gaming experience set in a twisted and astonishing world that grips you from the very start.

4.0 out of 5 stars A truly "adult" and scary Kinect game! September 7, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As an early Kinect adopter, I had high hopes for it... motion gaming, deeply immersive gameplay... up till now there hasn't been a game that really sucks you in and makes you feel like you are in the game like "Rise of Nightmares"... I found myself flinching, cowering, and being genuinely creeped out by what I was experiencing... brushing leeches from your arms, frantically pushing zombies back before they kill you, beating them to a pulp with a wide array of weapons, all with your body, not a controller... after an hour or so I had to take a break, both mentally and physically... it is a deeply immersive, heart-pounding game!

Is it perfect? No... is it for kids? NO!!! Is it the ground-breaking Kinect title you have been hoping for? YES!

4.0 out of 5 stars Kinects first M-rated game is a pretty solid title September 7, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been following this game for a year now. The idea of a mature Kinect game with off-rails controls intrigued me heavily. Also knowing that the team behind the House of the Dead series was working on it made things even more optimistic.

The graphics aren't bad, the blood and gore look really good, easily the best looking Kinect game available. The fun is in the immersion the game gives you, however, not the graphics. Even though it is essentially a light-gun game with melee weapons (and you are the lightgun), it actually adds in a pretty hefty story. That story may me convoluted and nonsensical at times, but I was surprised that there was actually something there. The way the game pulls you in is where everything clicks. You actually experience the fear and horror, and while it's not going to have you running for your blankie, there are plenty of creepy moments that will get you jumping.

The meat of the game is moving around various areas searching for your missing wife after she is kidnapped. The thing is, zombies are now everywhere and it's up to you and tons of weapons to take them out for good. Things like lead-pipes, knives, machetes, even garden shears are used to end zombies in the most gruesome ways possible. The combat itself works pretty well. Pretend you are holding a knife and slash or stab the way you would if you were really holding one and the game responds pleasantly and usually pretty accurate. Want to open a door? Simply push it open like you would a real door, or kick it open for dramatic effect. Is there a lever that needs to be activated? Make a "pull lever" motion with your hand and your character will do it. Zombie in your face?...just kick it away and then slice it up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brutal, Solid Scares Prove Kinect's Worth November 25, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Motion gaming has been a subject of hot debate in the gaming industry as of late. Traditional gamers prefer a more hands-on approach with controllers, while more casual gamers shout praise for the advent of easy-to-play experiences utilizing motion controls. Game studios have attempted to gear more motion-based games to traditional gamers in order to not lose their money, which has produced varying results. Leave it to the original development team behind the main "House of the Dead" entries, a series that defined arcade shooters, to show how to do hands-free gaming right. "Rise of Nightmares" is brutal, tense, but most importantly, it's fun.

The game kicks off with alcoholic protagonist Josh in a train while vacationing with his wife. When a flask falls from his jacket, she gets disgusted and storms out of the train car. But when he pursues her to the dining car, he sees her following a strange man to another part of the train. Next thing he knows, the train is crashing, and sent plummeting into a lake. He desperately runs to escape the sinking vessel, finding dry land and regrouping with survivors of the wreck. But just when he thinks it's safe, his party wanders through a corpse-filled forest into a bizarre castle filled with disgusting torture devices and violent undead hoards. With everybody around him dying in the most horrendous of ways, he must keep his wits about him and find his wife by any means necessary. Even if those means involve digging through the guts of a human corpse or decapitating a murderous maid by prying her neck with forceps. Which they totally do.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great and Immersive Game for the Kinect October 21, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
October presents a strangely eerie time of year. Despite being fun year round, this is the time of year where being spooky is perfectly acceptable. And speaking of spooky, let me introduce you to the first horror game featuring the Kinect for Xbox 360, Rise of Nightmares.

Before diving in, you must realize what this game is and what this game is not. Rise of Nightmares is a game that nails immersion and atmosphere. Before the game starts, you are told to adjust the gamma (darkness) settings of the game. Do NOT skip this step. The difference between choosing the right setting and ignoring is like running through a haunted house with the lights on. If you want to feel creeped out, follow the steps.

Rise of Nightmares does not try to play out like Left 4 Dead or Dead Island. Rise of Nightmares is about getting wrapped up into the storyline and allowing your imagination soak in all the details. You are given the ability to move around, but do not expect to jog around like a wild banshee chasing zombies. This is you, investigating a creepy house and fighting off attackers.

In this story, you play a character named Josh, who is on a vacation to Romania with his wife, Kate. Sure, you may ask why anyone would want to vacation in Romania, but again this is where you have to allow your imagination to roll with the punches. Accepting the story will allow you to gain the largest benefits meant from the game. The jaunt to Romania turns for the worse after a series of mysterious happenings on their train ride.

The characters in the story are great, but are a bit foul-mouthed. If you are sensitive to a few F-bombs, then stand clear. Nevertheless, with the amount of gore and violence here, I would guess a few F-bombs are par for the course.
