Terrible tracking for precision-based games,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Zoom for Kinect - Xbox 360 (Video Game)I am a tech-savvy guy in my late 20s and I've never been bested by a device or hands on project, so when I saw the Zoom's mixed reviews, I assumed I would overcome its setup challenges. Well, you've bested me, Zoom.
I set this up above and at the base of my TV, constantly checked lense alignment, tried it in well-lit, modestly lit, and unlit settings (I have several lights and windows with heavy curtains) at varying degrees of tilt. I then carefully and lightly dusted all the lenses with a lint-free cloth, made sure there were no smudges or finger-prints, and repeated this entire process. For every adjustment, I shut my X-Box down completely, restarted, and re-calibrated the sensor.
Despite mixing and matching settings and games (Fitness Evolved, Adventures, Sports, and Rise of Nightmares) for over two hours, I could not achieve a satisfactory experience for anything requiring acute hand-tracking. Jumping, ducking, and big arm movements were picked up, but shooting activities and even menu hopping were significantly less accurate. When I removed the sensor, everything was immediately fine again, except that I still have to move my couch to play.
I strongly recommend against buying this product.
