Top Customer Reviews
Several people seem to complain about the Kinect, but it has performed well for me. Before calibrating the Kinect, it worked pretty well, but after calibration, it works very well. It always responds to my body movements. Other than to say, "Xbox! Turn on!", which it does with great reliability, I don't use the voice features.
It's unexpectedly entertaining to have this game scan your face and produce a buffed character in your likeness.
If you are looking for some active indoor fun, this is a versatile and unique way to get it.
I didn't give it five stars because the drill sergeant who trains you is annoying. Luckily, he only has to be tolerated for a few minutes when you first try a game. And to his credit, he does teach you how to play.
Character creation is a little gimmicky. I haven't had it look very close to any of my friends that have played. The first scan got my skin color and hair color wrong somehow. It seems like it tries to match you to it's built in faces instead of just building one for you. The saving grace here is David Tennant (Doctor Who) is the voice that guides you through this process and the beginning of the game.
I threw this in my Xbox expecting to play immediately with my friends. Unfortunately you have to go through the whole process of building a character and then two activities for each sport before you can even play with more people. The tutorials part is so long winded that you stop paying attention and then miss out on important stuff. Personally I don't care about the story for this game that much, I'd rather just jump in and play the games with my friends. The way it is tailored seems to engage children more. Lets move onto the games:
Wave Racing - It took me awhile to get the hang of this one but the controls are actually pretty good. It can be fun for a race or two but I don't see myself playing this one a lot. Also holding your arms out gets tiring.
Climbing - This was more fun than I thought it'd be. It can get pretty fun if you start climbing really fast.
Target Shooting - You move your hand around and shoot down targets. I thought you'd be able to close your hand to fire but you just move it around. The game is alright but there's not much to it.
Soccer - This is more a life sized game of Foosball. It can be fun to build up speed and go for the score but most of the time it didn't really feel that I was controlling where the ball went.
Bowling - Bowling is about as good as it has been in the past. You can twist your hand for a spin or just throw the ball. It's pretty reliable and fun.
Tennis - This game worked pretty well but you run out of space fast.
--- Final Thoughts ---
- Keep in mind that you need space to play this game. I have a larger living room and still run into space issues which is unfortunate.
- My 360 Kinect had a motor that could change the angle based on which game you were playing and the "better" Kinect 2 doesn't.
- My 360 camera could scan a face into Rainbow Six. This wasn't perfect but you would think with the power of the Kinect you could do a much better job.
- I loved boxing on the first Kinect Sports, I wish it came back
- The first Kinect sports took pictures of you playing the game and then showing you how foolish you looked.
- The game feels $40 not $60
In the end do all of these criticisms prevent me from having fun? No. I won't play this game by myself that much but when I have friends come over it's still fun to play with lots of laughs.
Really the Kinect is just plain cool- making a fist to gas your wave runner- come on!
Not enough sports or variations
Have to play through each sport to unlock the others
I'm glad I bought it but mostly now just to pull out to show people what Kinect CAN do when they finally make some good games for it. I rarely get it out to just play for fun. I can't believe I'm saying this but the Wii Sports game is actually better (yikes!)
