    Ok, the game has problems (mainly aiming which jumps around a lot), BUT its the 1st FPS on the 1st motion sensing system. These guys would probably slam on Atari 2800 for having bad graphics and poor game play back in 1980! We'll all probably laugh about it when Kinect 2 comes out, but it does get credit for being 1st and you can buy it for 20$ now! BUY IT! ITS FUN!

    Blackwater is a definite step in the right direction to providing the motion-based FPS like the one promised when Microsoft announced their Kinect camera peripheral. But between the controversial backstory, the dicey subject matter, the terrible presentation, and the sketchy controls, it is a game that is better left on the shelf. If you want a better Kinect shooter experience, check out Gunstringer.

    A seed of a good idea prematurely chocked by numerous technical and design shortcomings. [Feb 2012, p.96]

    On-rails action for the morally oblivious. [Jan 2012, p.100]
