    The Xbox 360 version of Kung Fu Panda 2 is not only the best version in terms of quality; it also seems to capture the spirit of the movies in a way the other versions don't.

    You're better off sticking with the movie than putting up with the unresponsive controls and shallow combat in Kung Fu Panda 2.

    Kung Fu Panda 2 may win over fans on the cinematic front, but I can't say the same about its Kinect counterpart. Kung Fu Panda 2's charming cast of characters do a great job of moving the Kinect title's story mode along, however lag in full body combat sequences and noticeable lack of polish in minigames do little in making the user feel like the ultimate kung fu master.

    Kung Fu Panda 2 should be commended for trying something new and mostly succeeding. The fighting, while in no way deep, is responsive and fun, and the minigames control pretty well. It could have looked a little better, but the sound was nice enough. The game length does hurt, and since a good chunk of that time is spent watching the game instead of interacting with it, it's difficult to recommend Kung Fu Panda 2 for purchase, especially at its current price point. If it gets cheaper, it's not a bad purchase for fans, but for now, it's best as a rental.

    Kung Fu Panda 2 isn't going to kickstart any hard core gamer's engine, but it is a satisfying experience for the kids.

    It's a bit muddled, but the action is positively debilitating.

    Kung-Fu Panda 2 tries to bring kung-fu feeling in your living room. With bored round-based fights and a bad Kinect sensoring too much potential get lost.

    Something that will be eagerly demanded by the children of your household, only for that eagerness to be replaced by boredom and irritation.

    Kung Fu fun that quickly wears thin. [Aug 2011, p.101]

    Still the best Kinect game your correspondent has played.

    In the end, this game is definitely for younger children and although the Kinect is not as accurate as we hoped, it is still playable and we finished this game in around four hours of play.

    Punches, kicks, blocks and dodges in front of the Kinect translate surprisingly well to Po's movements. Loading times between these 1 on 1 fights are very long though. [August 2011, p.73]

    One of the worst movie tie-ins ever created. It's pretty obvious that whichever version you play - the Kinect-based Xbox 360 or the more "traditional" PS3 version - this game is the epitome of a rushed cash-in.
  15. A lightweight gimmicky kids' game made completely verboten due to messy controls. [Sept 2011, p.93]

    Poor controls ultimately doom it, making you feel even clumsier at kung fu than Po ever did. Skip this drudge and go see the movie instead. You'll have more fun, and enough money left over afterwards to take a karate class.

    Even judging by kids standards, Kung Fu Panda 2 is ruined by flaws like bad movements recognitions and long load times. There are better Kinect games out there.
