The idea is to drag your lazy bones, stand in front of the tube and save you from becoming a hapless couch potato. Your first few hours will surely be a lot of fun. You can have another player join you by simply position themselves on your side. He can be a boy or a girl depending on which side he jumps into.
May favorite is "Roaring Rapids", you ride on an inflatable and try to collect as many points by maneuvering with your body. When you jump, the boat jumps with you and you can reach objects high on the rock. By performing successive jumps with a friend, you can even reach higher, even up on top of the clouds.
I also love the game similar to a dodge ball, although you just have to hit targets by slapping and kicking the ball as opposed to getting the blissful satisfaction of hitting someone's vulnerable parts, it is a very active game that can make you gasp for air after finishing a set. You can also use your knees, your body for blocking, or your head. Not to be outdone, the log obstacle course is likewise a very fun game. You have to jump, dock, and position your arms and legs to reach objects to get as many points as possible.Read more ›
Below is my review of the Kinect experience since we bought it in 2010.
Purchased Christmas 2010, when my children were 5 & 6. After being "wowed" by the technology and the graphics, but the games themselves aren't much fun. The fun part is saying "look what I can do". The tracking is poor and causes lots of frustration with children and adults. In 10 years when this technology is perfected it may be fun, but in 2012, my children prefer the free video games on Nick Jr and PBS. In perspective, Kinect should be free and Nick Jr and PBS should charge. We have tried several of the Kinect games, each which comes with glowing reviews to be disappointed. I wonder if the reviews are written by people in the first hour of playing or by the games companies themselves. We also bought Skylanders which has been a bigger hit with my kids than any of the Kinects games. These are the Kinect games we bought in order of best to worst:
Kinect Sports: The best Kinect game. Tracks the best, user interface is best, the only Kinect game my kids want to play (occasionally).
Kinectables: Frustrating tracking, cute and the second best game. Easy to get lost in store or house and not be able to find way back to map. My children might play this for an hour every couple of months. Was not able hold their interest after the first few days.
Carnival: One of the best. Tracking seems better on this game. Annoying barker.Read more ›
I want to add that I'm not a big gamer so I can't compare this to other games and when I do play, I play games like platform games. I think the games on this would be considered something similar (which may be why I enjoy them so much) if they were controller based but I really think that anyone would love this game and I highly suggest that you give it chance.
IF you're also very overweight, you might want to take it a bit easy because some of the games require you to jump and crouch down low and often both. My left knee is feeling a little pressure now but I figured out a way to crouch that I could pass the parts that I needed to and not put too much pressure, I'm sure that if you mess around a bit, you'll figure something out too. ^_^
In essence you get a collection of mini-games which use your body to play. You don't have to hold controllers or learn buttons. For dodge-ball, a person simply stands in front of the screen and when a ball comes at them they whap it with their hand, foot, or head. How easy can that be? Everyone "gets it" within seconds and is immediately having fun.
There are river rapids where you jump to make the raft jump. There are obstacles courses where you do all sorts of crazy moves to gather points and avoid the obstacles. You plug up leaks in an aquarium with your body parts. You pop bubbles. Mostly, you have enormous amounts of fun.
It's not even an "exercise game" - but playing it does easily burn calories and get you into shape. You want to keep playing long after you're tired out!
We have young kids and older folks all wanting to take their turns. It's a nice mix of games. Someone who's not that fond of game A will adore game B and so on. I adore the dodge ball game. My friend loves the raft game.
You can play solo or with someone else. It's a maximum of two players, which on one hand is a shame but I'm also not sure how you could fit four people in one space and have them all flailing around without hurting each other.
Are there any down sides here? The games are definitely about motion. So if you have a tiny space you might not be able to play - but that would be true with any Kinect game. If you do not have the ability to be fully in motion - for example if you're in a wheelchair - you would also have issues with this game. So those are things to be aware of.Read more ›
