It seems that much like with the Wii launch some developers have made some inferior games to cash in. I would place Motionsports in this category.
There are some fun games in here so it's not a complete disaster.
On the good side -
are all decent although football and equestrian are almost "turn based" (seems as this was a design decision not a function of the hardware) as you must perform your move well before the motion actually happens which is odd since Skiing and hanggliding are both extremely responsive.
On the diaster/broken mechanics side I would place Boxing and Soccer. Boxing difficulty seems ridiculous. You can connect with many punches on just the second boxer after the "tutorial" boxer and if he hits you a couple of times you're going down. In soccer the setup for kicking the ball pretty much breaks the gameplay as it is extremely difficult to tell where exactly on your floor you need to kick. It does say "shoot" but only for a very brief moment.
There is also no online multiplayer (I believe there is in Microsoft sports) so the game gets a negative there.
Also, there is no broader game.. would be nice if they could have included some sort of party game setup so the minigames don't feel so detached.
There are 6 sports, 1 of them is broken, 2 of them are just plain awesome, 2 are good, and of course there is rock climbing which is just okay.
The 2 best minigames: Mountain Biking and Kitesurfing. If you only played these 2 sports, you'd definitely think that this is one of the strongest titles for the Kinect. I personally think this game should have always been a budget title, just focusing on these 2 minigames. They are really, really fun and addicting!
The broken mini-game: Kayaking. Are you serious? What are you supposed to do? The Kayaking mini-game didn't respond to my moves at all. Overall HORRIBLE!
2 good mini-games: Skiing The skiing is a lot of fun, and better than, or as good as the Skiing in Kinect Sports 2. Controls work well. You lean your body, crouch after a jump, and use your invisible skis, imitating as if you really were using skis to gain control and speed. Wingsuit diving is fun as well, and requires a lot of leaning as well, but requires you squat down to fly and grab the coins at the lower parts of the screen.
Controls for the 2 best minigames (mountain biking and kitesurfing): The controls are tight, and the gameplay is a lot of fun. The courses are fun, and require you jump at the end of the ramps to get air and posing for Adrenaline points. The Kitesurfing allows you to grind on rails (which you must jump to get to), which I think added a nice extra touch. You can hold your arms up in the air to substitute for jumping on the mountain biking.

This year, Ubisoft is at it again, but instead they've released MotionSports Adrenaline for the PS3, Wii, and Xbox. Their focus this time is on six "extreme sports".
As you start each activity, you choose whether you're left handed or right handed, and then calibrate your Move controller by holding it at shoulder level, at hip level, and across your belt line, just like with Sports Champions. The controller accuracy and precision, not surprisingly, is pretty good. I wish I could say the same about the gameplay itself.
Here's my take on each "extreme sport":
1) Kite Surf: Here, you're kite-surfing. You hold the Move controller sideways (you only need one) and you "steer" by tilting your hands as if you're steering a wheel. You jump by holding the "T" button and raising your arms. You can get a speed boost by holding the "T" button and pushing forward. You can "strike poses" at various points (which they call "hitting tricks") and you can "collect coins" to earn points.
While the graphics were decent and the motion controls were responsive enough, it just didn't feel like a realistic experience. I was expecting more of a realistic "simulation", but but at the end of the day it just felt like a video game that I may as well have been playing with the Dualshock controller, as the Move controllers just didn't feel natural at all.Read more ›
