The Kinect has had its highs and its lows and a whole lot in between. Each time I get the opportunity to review a Kinect game, I have no small amount of trepidation. I'm always afraid that I'm going...

Haunt Review

 

A lighthearted story and smart Kinect integration make Haunt a captivating all-ages adventure.

There's no getting away from the fact that Haunt is a slight experience, but it's also very charming and a game that is carefully crafted to work with both the Kinect controller and its intended young audience. Not a game you'll keep coming back to,...

Despite the use of the Kinect technology, Haunt feels like a game from ages past. There is an innocence here that you used to get with the likes of Atari's Haunted House or Sega's Ghost House. That pure sense of fun, plus the reasonable 800-point...
