if you look at the review of the kinect games overwhelmingly it seems games made my Microsoft have overall solid reviews and games made by anyone else for the most part got terrible reviews. Can someone please explain why that is.
Because Microsoft doesn't pay people to post positive reviews for other company's games? It's the only possible way I can see Kinect Sports getting 4 and a 1/2 stars. That game is god awful, and yes I have played it. Laggy, buggy, and nothing like the actual sports. Not even remotely close. I'm sure there are some who like it. My brother in law hasn't played it since he picked it up on release day.
I can see your point. The graphics are kind of "kiddish". But you can't go in expecting to be immersed in a Call of Duty-like game. Kinect Sports is good for what it does. Especially for someone (like me) who's a newbie in the XBOX 360 market (and for kids). Actually it's pretty phenomenal. People, don't listen to me or Vylsith here. Give it a try for yourself; or watch some youtube videos. I think you'll be pretty happy. And no, I don't work for Microsoft.
Microsoft knows Kinect inside and out so they know how to create good games for it. Also, they need good games to sell the kinect. Other developers couldn't care less about the kinect since they only want to sell their games.
