    This is the exact type of game Microsoft should be pushing for the Kinect. If you've got one, it's absolutely worth the 800msp price of admission.

    The game's arguably a bit short (though it is $10), and some of the ghost encounters are marred by attack prompts that aren't always recognized. But if you have the patience (and the health reserves) to endure a few irritating battles, you'll find Haunt worth the visit.

    Kids will obviously adore it, but if you've ever enjoyed inching through Disneyland's campy haunted house, you'll be equally at home in Haunt.

    Family friendly survival horror with a quietly ambitious, and largely successful, attempt to get the most out of Kinect.

    Charming and engaging. [Issue#119, p.118]

    Ultimately, Haunt for Xbox Live Arcade is a good game for everyone. It is an approachable game that uses Kinect to create an experience to be enjoyed mostly by children, or at least with children. Its only issues are some problems with motion detection.

    Gesture recognition is loose and forgiving, and it makes no attempt to suggest Kinect's genuinely interpreting every movement. Instead, each manoeuvre feels like the empty-handed equivalent of pushing a button – albeit a button that tends to idle a little before it triggers anything.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Excellent game, really liked it. There is a game in which the person is afraid to play, but it was well placed to get the items during gambling. I recommend to everyone. Expand

    Other interesting game for Kinect, I think that the first great titles start to appear, this game, or Double Fine Happy Action Theater, Haunt is like a horror film for kids, like the Monster House type, and the gameplay is awesome, the story is really funny and atractive, the graphics are colorful. Obviusly have some problems, but is great watching the simple form that the kids have a funny game. Haunt is a really big entertainment, awesome, easy, and addictive. All the Kinect games need be like Haunt, (ejem- Rise of Nightmares-ejem). Expand
