One of the better kinect games
, October 10, 2012
This review is from: Fable: The Journey - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
Not sure what the other people complaining about bad controls are talking about. Compared to other kinect games this has pretty good control. Like all kinect games, how well it controls is going to be dependent on how optimized your playing area is. I have a good amount of space and always use good lighting. I know not everyone is going to have a large amount of space to play, but that isn't really the games fault, you know what you are getting into with any kinect game. With this game you are for the most part stationary so you don't necessarily need a wide playing area but you will still need to be able sit far enough back so the kinect sensor can see you accurately. The game responds well to your arm motions whether it be pulling the reigns for your horse or redirecting the direction of the spells you cast. My eight year old daughter plays this game fine without any trouble, if she can control it fine I don't see any reason why anyone else wouldn't be able to.
As far as the game itself, it is a pretty fun lil spinoff of the fable games. This does not play anything like the past fable games and it is not meant to. This is not a continuation of the past fable games. This is a completely new game that takes place in the fable world. It is an on rails game and time will be split between driving your horse drawn carriage or on foot casting magic with both of your hands.Spells consist of projectiles that you can shoot and redirect around objects, pushing spells that also stun and pulling spells that let you fling enemies around or interact with world objects like boulders or pulling down parts of the ceiling. Along the way you gain experience and can upgrade your characters skills. It is a fun game with a decent story and worth a try if you enjoy kinect games.
