Kinect Sports (Xbox 360)

 

Sports-themed minigame collections are practically a requisite for motion-controller launch lineups at this point. The Wii launched with Wii Sports, The PlayStation Move launched with Sports Champions, and now Kinect for the Xbox 360 is launching with...

When you release any sort of motion-sensitive controller device, you have to release a game that makes the most of it, and usually, developers rely on a sports compilation. Wii Sports obviously proved that it could do a lot for Nintendo's game...

Along with the six main activities, you can also choose from various mini-games, each with varying rules for each sport. Party Play is also available, ideal for when you’ve got friends or families over to catch Kinect. Best of all, you can save video...

The graphics in Kinect Sports do an excellent job conveying the upbeat and vibrant world Rare has crafted for their avatars. Your avatar has ample opportunity to mimic your motions and it can be entertaining to watch your avatar perform an impromptu...

This is the other sport that overlaps with the competitions offerings. In the boxing mode you are able to fight against CPU players or another human in a three round bout. During the fight you are able to land body shots by throwing punches and...

Microsoft saw Nintendo making tons of money on Wii Sports and wanted in on the action. Who would they get to make a game like a Nintendo game? Well, they seemingly said to themselves, how about that part of Nintendo we bought?

Kinect Sports Review for the XBOX360

 

There's nothing fashionable about being late.

It's Wii Sports, but for Kinect; Casually engaging

Highlights some of Kinect's shortcomings; Bowling is a gutter ball

This motion-controlled sports collection doesn't do much for solo players, but it's fun to play with friends both locally and online.

Good variety of sporting events ; Intuitive and mostly responsive controls ; Multiplayer works well both locally and online

Does almost nothing to cater to solo players ; You need to exaggerate some of your movements for them to register

Similarly, table tennis is a lot of fun and could hardly be simpler. Your onscreen Xbox Live avatar does just about everything that you do, which includes moving closer to or farther from the table and stepping from side to side. Using your hand as a...

Considering that Wii Sports captured the nation's heart many years ago and sold around a kazillion copies, it's no surprise that with Microsoft's supposed piece of ground-breaking technology, Kinect, that one of their launch titles would be something...

Kinect Sports, as far as launch titles on a new piece of tech go, is actually surprisingly fun. There seems to be a few growing pains, including the fact that the recommended distance between you and the devices stands at 2.5 metres, and there often...

There was a small competition running on the day that had eight teams going against each other and playing the party mode that is featured in Kinect Sports that basically takes all the challenge modes from the game and randomly chooses one for the...

The last mode I experienced was the track and field events. There was sprinting which required you to just run up and down on the spot until you crossed the finish line, the hurdles which was the same thing except you needed to jump when a hurdle came...

One of the descriptions (or complaints) lobbed at the Kinect is that it is simply duplicating what made the Wii so successful, albeit without controllers. When looking at Kinect Sports, it's hard to argue with that comparison. This game offers the best...

Kinect technology works well. Great for families/parties. Very accessible

A few control quirks. Not much fun solo. Sports can get repetitive

Microsoft's Kinect Sports is one of the first retail releases for Xbox 360 to use the Kinect hands-free accessory system. Sports-themed mini-games are played through a controller-free interface that can sense motion, detect gestures, and pick up spoken co
