Kinect games are always a sticky wicket from the time of announcement until review time. At first glance, it's easy to relegate them into the arena of gimmickry, and assume that like many other games of its kind, the controls "just won't work."...

Everyone loves breaking things right? You could make an argument that it’s one of the reasons Angry Birds did so well, because you got to wreck things. I bring up the Angry Birds reference purposely because what if you could play something similar with...

Wreckateer is the latest Kinect title, vying for our attention and desperate to be taken seriously. All too frequently, it's easy to be cynical when the word Kinect is bandied around. Yet to reach its true potential, many a gamer has struggled to be...

Lining up a shot just right, adding a dash of aftertouch and watching towers plummet.

It's never cute little kittens or puppies causing unpleasantness in the world...it's always goblins. Wreckateer follows the familiar formula as goblins have overrun castles. Your goal is to tear these castles down one by one in order to evict these...

It's kind of sad that the Kinect doesn't have more great games for it. Now, don't get me wrong. The great games that are available truly stand out, stuff like The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, Child of Eden, that sort of thing. But then you have...

Will the Wreckateer crash into your life, or will it break down your Kinect playing enjoyment? 411's Stewart Lange had an exclusive review!

I enjoyed my time with Wreckateer and who knows, I may even go back to it now and again. Well worth a try when it's released.

Better check yourself....

A MILLION BILLION POINTS!; All the Angry Birds, none of the angry; I'm a king

Kind of shallow; Do you have a Kinect?; Does it work?; Is your living room big enough?; Is it well lit?; What are you wearing?; Go change; OK, you don't have enough space. Move the couch.; Fuck it, the Kinect sucks

Wreckateer did not make me angry one bit. If it were a movie, it would win the Oscar for Least Threatening Film. The difficulty does ramp up, but transforming Rovio's 2D physics puzzler into 3D space with an wide, expansive castle means that precision...

Wreckateer's merry destruction is backed up by enjoyable score-chasing and good Kinect controls.

Smooth difficulty curve ramps up to challenging shots ; Good variety of shot types and power-ups ; Busting stuff up is fun

There are dozens of levels in Wreckateer, enough to make the 800-Microsoft-point price tag seem very reasonable. The game also features a new, cross-game program called Avatar Famestar, which gives you challenges to complete in order to earn points and...

Summer of Arcade goes Kinect in this surprising puzzle game, and its greatest problems have nothing to do with the motion controls.

In longer sessions, Wreckateer exposes the extent of its creativity, leaving you with little to wonder about and discover as you grind through too-similar stages. But it works both as a Kinect puzzle game and a relaxing casual diversion. You can...
