I gotta say... i've always wanted to be a super hero and instead of dawning tights and just shy of one of those weirdos running around pretending to be super heroes in reality, this is a real as it gets. The game is overall fun, I broke a sweat, and I forgot I was exercising.

I also like that my avatar is the one doing all the fighting.. really drew me in.

My two favs are kinect sports (which will soon be replaced by kinect sports 2) and Power up heros. Man, I thought I was done with video games.. and I keep getting drawn back in.

Now the tough part is convincing my wife to play it and not accidently kicking my one year old while playing.

This is the best Kinect title I have ever played. I'll admit I have only played a few others; The Gunstringer, Your Shape Fitness Evolved and Kinect Adventures.

The responsiveness is great in this game. Some reviews say it is terrible, but that is blatantly false and there are videos on YouTube to disprove their claims. Just so you know how I feel; don't trust a media outlets review of a Kinect game, instead watch a real player playing it.

I would love to have given this game 5 stars but I can't. The campaign is awfully short. Another reason is the negative views it is getting from media outlests. Those negative reviews are going to make the online play sparse. I have been in a few online matches already and though I lost it was a lot of fun. It is amazing to think that someone else is jumping around to play the game too. Everything else about this game is fantastic.

If you own a Kinect this title should at least be rented, in my opinion. Use it to determine if you can even have a quality Kinect setup. If you cannot get this game to run properly then you should consider selling your Kinect because you will probably never enjoy a Kinect title.

SpazHinata and TheOmnigamer on YouTube have excellent videos on this game.

I have been waiting for this game since I first played Super Mario Bros in the 80s. Really fun, responsive and gives you quite the workout without being a fitness game. I have most Kinect games, and this is easily my favorite. Very promising for the 'next gen' of Kinect titles. It's a little limited vis-a-vis length and variety of play (this is a standard fighter), but if you've ever wanted to shoot lasers from your hands, summon zombies upon request, or otherwise be a superhero, buy this game!

Now I have to say, doing poses as if I'm throwing out bolts of lighting an so forth makes me a little uneasy to do around others, but alone it's pretty fun.

What I like about Power Up Heroes is that it uses my Xbox live avatar and turns it into a super hero.

Their are a multitude of suits and various ways to play using unique attacks against your opponents.

This first time I played this my left shoulder got so sore. Throwing all these punches and lifting my arms up and the occasional knee to my opponents stomach is quite the workout. I began to sweat after 10 minutes or so of this.

All in all this is one of the best Kinect games I've had the opportunity to play. It's fun, and it's great exercise. The only thing missing is a little recording of yourself like the dance games do. You can sit around and laugh at how funny you look fighting an invisible opponent!

Definitely recommended for any age range.

Since I've been reviewing, I think I've reviewed mostly every Kinect game out. I've owned this for a couple of months, and must say that this is a top 5 game for the Kinect, if not the best game available. I'd even go as far as saying that this is the best game for the Kinect.
My top 5 would be in this order:
1. Power Up Heroes
2. Motion Sports Adrenaline
3. Kinect Rush
4. Child of Eden
5. Fruit Ninja Kinect
I've played and probably reviewed most of the games available.

Power Up Heroes is one of those games I would equate to the PS3 version of The Fight: Lights Out which is my favorite game on the Move. Power Up Heroes is very colorful, and the controls work flawlessly. The menus are one of the best of any Kinect title, and the response times are perfect. I was hesitant at buying this game at full price because of the Kinect being semi-new and thought there may have been a lot of motion control detection issues. I found motion detection to work flawlessly. I was also hesitant because some claim that this is a short game. I've played this game many hours (maybe 10) and am only on Level 5. I cannot seem to beat the fighter who is at Level 10.
Bottomline: If you want a fun workout game. Buy it. The campaign is many hours of fun, and it's generally easy finding a challenger online for a multiplayer match.

Before buying the game, I played the demo and woah was i hooked! Even thought it was just 2 battles in the demo, it was addicting..i just had to have more.

I watched tons of videos on youtube of people trying to play this game. After watching them i questioned the responsiveness of the controls because it seemed like the player would do the motion but it wouldn't be translated in the game...

...after playing the full game finally, I can safely say that the video reviewers were a bunch of no-flair flabby fannies. I was launching Ultra chains left and right. Blasting and punching my eniemies into oblivion!!!!

The key to this game is THINK LIKE A POWER RANGER!!!

You have to really get into this game in order to really kick ass with it. The kinect picks up the moves so precisely. I can chain and ultra chain like there is no tomorrow. The trick is to visualize each move and plan ahead! Pay attention to the moves and move your body the way it asks. You will not be disappointed!!!

If you watch the same videos that I have, don't be discouraged by the sloppy play style. Every punch kick and block registered with the kinect. This game is alike a dream come true for me and I feel like a little kid again. it.

It is also packed with feature rich content like Practice, 2 Player splits screen, and online versus. You get more if you link your Ubisoft uplay account.

So last night i pop it in with some versus and I went 5 - 0 UNDEFEATED!!!!! (after 5 matches I was tired as hell!!) I got a PM from a kid asking how I launched the moves so fast and I told him, exactly what I am telling you now..act like you're a real super hero! The guy got it and I think he got the hint. Ill ask him tonight during the REMATCH!!!!

I recommend this game for anyone who has a kinect. I cant wait for a sequel!!!!!
