    It's a perfect time waster that doesn't take much in the way of set-up to get into, and the Kinect functionality is really spot on.

    Halfbrick Studios has a runaway hit on their hands here, as my aching arms will attest to. While having an exuberant amount of fruit slashing fun, you are for sure getting a work out here. Have a care not to overdo, because you just get carried away by the silliness and fruit juice splashing fun.

    Despite the high price it's a funny little game to play! You can pick it up any time and play it with a friend, something that wasn't possible in the original Fruit Ninja game.

    If you're looking for a fun, spaz-tastic diversion or ultra-simple party game, look no further.

    There's no denying that Fruit Ninja Kinect is great fun when played alone or with friends, and makes excellent use of the Kinect hardware, but it's also a little overpriced when compared with the iPhone offering. You get slightly more content, but I can't help but think you're paying for a beefed up mini-game. Still, if you own Kinect Fruit Ninja is one of the best experiences available for it.

    The Kinect controls actually work quite fine, but there's just not enough content here for the price and it gets repetitive too soon.

    Bought this for my sons, ages 9 and 3, and they absolutely love this game. $10 may have been a little high on the asking price, but seeing how much fun they are having doing their "karate" its been well worth it. Expand

    If you love Fruit Ninja on your phone, then just wait till you play it on the Kinect! This game is great! The only complaint I have is navigating the menu, its almost too sensitive, so you'll chop an option or game mode you didn't want. Scrolling through the leader boards or "Sensei's Swag" is also a little tricky to get used to. Other than that, it is excellent! Fun for every age! The multiplayer is very fun, team play is definitely my favorite mode. A great buy in my opinion, I highly recommend it Expand

    A great game if you are training your kid to be a ninja. I used to be an ordinary sensai that had problems training my padawans, but now with this new "Fruit Ninja Kinect" they have became men. I endorse this product; fight on, fruit ninjas! Expand

    I loved Fruit Ninja Kinect on my iPhone, so I thought it would be a great fit on the 360. It's great if you're kinda tired, as you don't have as much kicking & jumping like most Kinect games, it's primarily swinging your arms in chopping motions. The biggest downside I've found to this is that when The Gunstringer comes out, you get this free--so if you wait a few months for it to come out, you'll have this to go with it! Expand

    The game was excellent, but...rather difficult. The controls make it hard to play. If you're good at the iPhone version, don't you think you'll be good at this one. It's completely different. But hey, you get to act like a ninja. Who doesn't want to do that? Expand

    Its actually a rather generic game. Its not bad, Its actually quite enjoyable. But all you literally do is just wave your arms to chop the fruit, It gets boring after a while. Especially when it lacks other modes as well. Expand

    It lacks game modes. The game modes that it does have are too generic and similar to each other. It gets boring rather quickly as well. Its not that much with a friend either. Its just a generic kinect game, Nothing more. Expand
