1. Track & Field: This area includes a variety of different activities that work well with the basic body movements the Kinect can control. These include running , jumping, and throwing things (javelins & discus). I think young and old would both have fun with this! This may actually be my favorite activity in this game.
2. Bowling: Not as much control as Wi Sports bowling--but it is actually feels more like bowling when you can just stick your hand out to pick up the ball and then swing your arm to bowl. No controller to hold on to or push buttons. Once again this is an activity that would appeal to both young and old. Personally, I still like the bowling in Wii Sports better because of the more precise control.
3. Boxing: I like this better than the Wii Sports Boxing--but there is still some lag time and I just don't get the feel that all my moves are translating accurately. Plus, like an earlier reveiwer indicated it seems like punching wildly is actually a winning approach in this game. I do like how you can just hold your arms up to block--this felt very natural. I'm waiting for the Kick Boxing version because when you kick your legs in this activity your avatar kicks its legs--but they don't seem to translate to "hits" in the game.
4. Beach Volleyball: This one will take some time to master. It can get a bit confusing because there are several different techniques involved--jumping, hitting, and blocking. If you're tall--make sure you don't have a ceiling fan above you--or at least make sure it's not on!
5. Table Tennis: Once again it was fun to play without a controller in my hand but I felt there were a few times when the intensity of my hits were not reflected in what actually happened on screen. For example, when an opportunity comes up for a "smash" the game announces it and then actually does it regardless of whether I swung harder or not.
6. Soccer: Fun and interesting. You don't have to run around the field yourself. Your player magically appears where the ball is kicked to. Simple body movements control your kicks and blocks. Gray directional lines on the screen show the directionally options when kicking and your location when blocking.
Throughout the games the Kinect takes photos and short videos of your movements. These are played at the end of each game. The images are saved so you can share them with others. This feature will appeal to some and not to others. For example, I find the images of my son interesting and humorous--but I need to find out how to erase the images of me!
Adding a second player was extremely easy. If I wanted to join my son all I had to do was step in front of the TV and the Kinect added me to the in-play game. The graphics are also much better than the Wii! Kinect Sports looked great on a 40" HDTV. We don't even play the Wii on this TV because of how bad it looks.
Bottom line: If you have an XBOX already--adding the Kinect and Kinect Sports really adds a nice dimension to your video game experience. If you have young kids or older folks that have trouble remembering what buttons to push on a remote--it doesn't get any easier than the Kinect.
P.S. It is a neat and strange sensation to be standing in front of your TV and the avatar on the screen is doing the same movements that you are. You can sway, move your arms and legs, and dance, and the avatar mimics it. This alone makes for good entertainment!
You can't imagine how much fun we have had with this simple game. Ok, so there are different games to play ( from Table Tennis,Boxing, Running and Jumping on a field, Soccer and I believe I'm missing one more) the great thing is that you can play with the computer, with a friend or family member who is with you, or if you are with more people you can make groups and play against them.
This is so much fun!!!! We literally spent the entire night playing this on my friends house. They invited us for beer and BBQ the other night and since they have kids (5 and 11 years old) I decided it'll be fun to play all together. Kids and adults.
Oh my God!! All the boys (grown up boys) were having a blast!!! They were competing between each other and they were sweating like if they were at the gym!!!
I said, Wow you guys are training for the Olympics? !!!
So hilarious to see everyone having so much fun, no matter the age.
I like that it's easy to understand (like for small kids) and that you are active all the time. You have to stand up and jump, move, run, you exercise.
My husband was joking and said this was more fun to do rather than going to the gym to loose weight. There you go! I said.
Trust me, buy it. You will enjoy it.
While participating in a Bone study program, I learned that I needed to do stress exercises in addition to walking. I bought some stretch cords that came with a DVD from Walmart, which was surprisingly strenuous if you follow the included DVD workout. After trying Kinect Adventures that comes with Kinect, I quickly experienced that my heart rate went up fast playing several of the games. My Wife and I both played bowling for about an hour the first night. We wore each other out. I then tried some boxing, and felt the burn by the time I had played that for about 30 minutes. In easy mode, the games are absolutely playable, and no special hand held items are needed. Your body is the controller. So, if your needing to drop your A1C, but don't feel like joining a Gym, or walking outdoors after every meal, don't own treadmill, or stationary bikes, try this. It's a purely fun way, to have fun either against the computer, or with a family member or online with up to four people.
Everything in this game, 'just works.'
