    At the end of the day, Adrenalin Misfits is a Kinect game that fits well into the early games released for Microsoft's entry into the world of motion control.

    Crossboard 7 is a fair game as a Kinect launch title, but most will probably forget about it quite quickly. The overall design is clearly targeted at younger gamers, which makes it much less appealing for older ones, but its movement recognition and simple challenges make it a nice (and physical) entertainment to occupy rainy Wednesdays.

    The raw ingredients for a fun, fast-paced, high-adrenaline racer that the Kinect sorely needs are all in place. But sadly CrossBoard 7 is ultimately let down by a lack of fine-tuning in the motion-control and gameplay department.

    Even if you're a fan of snowboarding games, you'll struggle with almost everything that Adrenalin Misfits has to offer. Even the inclusion of a likable multiplayer mode can't keep this game from being a grind.

    Another Kinect game and another fail. Just like Sonic Free Riders, inaccurate controls makes Crossboard 7 a little nightmare even for the most passionate snowboard fans.

    From its tired mid-1990s 'cool kid' chic and offensively putrid design; to the slipshod quality of control that consistently fails to map proper movements into the game's on-screen action, it's fair to say that Crossboard 7 is not the 'system seller' show-piece for Microsoft's intensively technical Kinect hardware, but more of a case study for developers to learn exactly what not to do with it.

    Think Sonic Free Riders (shudders)
    but it works. (YAY!)
    Adrenalin Misfits made it work with a simple modification: the perspective is
    changed to slightly birds-eye-view, along with a crap-ton of other fixes. While it is still rather tiring sometimes, it's a KINECT GAME. The hell did you expect?! A properly-tuned Kinect can help a lot of problems. While still kinda crappy, Kinect games are getting better, and this is a good example. Have faith. Collapse
