Kung Fu: High Impact

 

While playing Kung Fu: High Impact, in the beginning, I discovered that my primary enemy was myself. Or if I wasn't the enemy, my fat was. I am very out of shape, and attempting to battle the combined forces of Tiki village people and shadowy...

All of these prevalent issues turn High Impact into a workout that doesn’t work out. The flavor is that of a party game, but within multiplayer it grants no Kinect functionality for other players. It lends itself towards allowing all styles of combat,...

Accurate Kinect Tracking ; Great workout ; Customizable Fights ; Nifty comic book cutscenes

Some enemy types deal cheap hits ; Easy to abuse Power Punch move ; Don’t expect a complex brawler

Kung-Fu High Impact (Xbox 360) Review

 

Pretend you're Bruce Lee with the power of Kinect.

Kung-Fu High Impact is enjoyable for the first half hour or so, but then you’ll grow bored, frustrated, and tired by the gameplay. The combat registers well with Kinect, but the gameplay is so boring and so bland that you’ll end up flailing your arms...

Kung Fu High Impact Review

 

Clever comic-book trappings aren't enough to save Kung-Fu High Impact from frustrating motion controls and boring action.

Comic book cutscenes can be fun

Imprecise and frustrating controls ; Bland level design ; Amount of content is lacking

It's tempting to think that this game might have been better if it took video or pictures of you performing each motion and then let you play as your digitized self with a standard controller. However, even with precise controls, Kung-Fu High Impact...

Kung Fu High Impact- Xbox 360

 

I advise would-be fans to shop around and get a better price, as the amount of game content may be disappointing if you pay much more than $20. All the same I think it's a must-have for the Kinect collection.

As a retail Kinect product, there is too much in the way of either frustrating or boring content. You should do your kung-fu fighting somewhere else.

If you're looking for a Kinect novelty to pull out when company is over, Kung-Fu High Impact may serve that purpose. If you're looking for a game to help you look at Kinect as more than just a gimmick, this isn't the one for you.

Kung Fu High Impact- Xbox 360

 

There might be some limited fun to be had batting some of the weird enemies around... if the motion controls were crisp and responsive. Since they're not, it's literally no fun at all, and ends up being at best a chore and at worst a painful,...

Kung Fu High Impact- Xbox 360

 

Even with survival stages and a quirky bonus where you can fight up to four friends who plug in controllers, this hardly feels like a $40 game. But if you're willing to shell out for it and deal with the control flubs and brevity, Kung Fu High Impact...

Exercise in disguise, and great use of Kinect technology!

 

We have tried the demo game, and I think it is great. My son, age 9, takes taekwondo, and he practices his moves with this game. It is neat to see him on the screen. I was concerned about the violence, but I think it is "cartoony" enough not to be a...
