Gunstringer is a different kind of game that makes everybody look at it crossways (also known as "WTF") at first. It doesn't have a menu and instructions. It starts with live-action video of people setting up a live stage show with a marionette and then the camera settles behind the animated marionette as it walks into the animated story narrated by a gravely voice who sets the scenes. Screen prompts and funny narrator nudges indicate what you should do next to control the gun-slinging marionette protagonist. The narrator doesn't speak to you directly (he's narrating for that live audience, I guess) but repeats himself and uses emphasis when he's trying to tell you to do something. It is funny, but the kids don't seem to get it, and it can be tiring holding your arms out in front of you to keep walking or shooting. But I want to play it some more. It has adult humor--not as in inappropriate for kids, but as in funny for adults and not necessarily for kids, and maybe some over-the-kids'-heads inferences on adult behavior.
I remember playing Kindect Adventure some, but I don't recall it catching my interest, and I haven't bothered to go back to it.
Kinect Adventures comes on a DVD, but the other two games have codes in the box that allow you do download them from Xbox Live. You don't have to have a gold membership, but you do have to have the downloaded games on your hard drive to play them.
The Kinect itself is a cool idea, but so far I think I prefer the Wii-style motion control. The Kinect allows voice control in the main menu screens, and you can use gestures to navigate, too, but I found neither of these more convenient than using the regular controller.
I gave it 4 stars, but I'm wondering if I should give it 3 after reading what I said above. I'll stay at 4 because I really haven't played many games of any sort lately, but I will gripe a bit about product photos and on-box photos that strongly imply DVD boxes for all three games but have a small card inside with codes to download two of the three bundled games.
We've got a handful of games and demos, and I really enjoy the Kinect. Exercise and workout games are great. The kids can have a lot of fun. It's not always a 100% accurate, but it is a lot of fun.
Waving to sign-in. This has been the most problematic part of the entire Xbox Kinect experience. I understand "waving" is a cute way to activate the Kinect. But for whatever reason, this is the most problematic part of the experience. I really wish Microsoft would do some further testing with younger kids and offer some alternatives - perhaps a jumping jack instead of a wave.
I have waited awhile to write this review because as much as I really like the device and the new layer it brings to my gaming experience, I cannot help but feel slightly underwhelmed by the selection of games available that fit my tastes. One previous reviewer had mentioned something about making this type of purchase in the hopes that future games and features will justify it. I can now relate.
But before I get to that let's talk about setup and ease of use.
SETUP the Device
If you have an Xbox 360 slim all you have to do is plug the power cord into the Xbox and complete the initial configuration setup. For those who have an older Xbox 360 (white,Arcade,Pro) don't worry, you can enjoy Kinect as well with the included adapter that comes in the box. Regardless of how you set up the device, it will operate the same.
Once I setup the hardware I was ready to start navigating the new Metro Style tiles with both my hand and voice. My younger sister and I have really enjoyed the voice commands as they can make for some very fast navigation. The hand gestures are very responsive as well, though I do feel like there is a bit of a rhythm that one needs to find in order for the process to work smoothly. That's okay though, as when the Kinect is powered on there is a prompt in the right hand corner of your screen that will keep you updated on what your Kinect is doing. Very useful!
SETUP your LIVING ROOM
Now this proved to be a bit more of a challenge. Without a doubt the Kinect is going to get you up off the couch and provide its fair share of laughs, but in order to truly appreciate all that it can do you must have SPACE. It is critical that you have a space in which furniture can easily be moved that will give you a clearance of 6 to 10 feet. I suggest sliding some paper plates under the couch or coffee table to assist you with the move and to protect your back from heavy lifting.
Once you are in the clear the fun can begin and the three included games are a great start to any collection. Kinect Adventures! is a single or mutliplayer activity game that prompts you to use your entire body to jump, kick, steer, swim, and float around the screen. Your heart rate WILL go up as you and your friend complete the adventures. My sister and I really liked seeing the silly action shots that Kinect takes during gameplay.
Our most favorite game out of the bunch is definitely Fruit Ninja Kinect.
***(Please note that both this game and The Gunstringer are digital downloads. This means that instead of receiving a physical CD like Kinect Adventures, the bundle comes with two redeemable tokens which you must enter into Xbox Live to begin the download process. It is extremely important that you enough storage space on your Xbox to hold both of them at any given time. The beauty of a digital download is that when you want to play you do not have to go to the shelf and grab the CD. Just use the Kinect voice commands or motion controls to launch and you are on your way!)***
Back to Fruit Ninja,lol, it is just a lot of fun. Your arms act as giant swords which you use to slice fruit that is tossed up on the screen. The game provides built in challenges and time trials but the best is when you and a friend are side by side attempting to slice fruit together. Kinect even recognized my sisters leg as a sword when she used a high kick to slash a pear into pieces. Like a said, it is our favorite game of the three and we even got Mom and Dad to jump in and play as well.
Looking towards the future.
I started the review by speaking about my overall satisfaction with the product but noted a slight feeling of disapointment. That has a lot to do with the TYPE of game that I am looking to play. I am 23 years old. Typically I enjoy games like Halo Reach,Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Batman: Arkham City. In my opinion, the Kinect library of titles is still catering to a family or younger audience. That is why my particular disapointment might not apply to most people reading this review. Instead, the titles I am looking forward to enjoying like Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Mass Effect 3 have yet to be released. So, while I am content with the games so far, I will not be fully satisfied until more mature titles are released.
In the meantime, I have had fun using the voice and motion navigation, playing Dance Central with my girlfriend and Fruit Ninja with Paige. I think most people reading this review will find a lot of enjoyment as well.
Thank you for reading and please leave a comment if I can be of any further assistance,
**Be sure to download the free Kinect Labs for more Kinect fun as well as all the free demos available via Xbox Live! A great alternative to going out and buying more games right away!
