    The perfect game to be bundled with Kinect: funny and with a very good graphical side.

    Still, it's breezy, colourful presentation and general silliness make Kinect Adventures easy to like.

    While undoubtedly fun, Kinect Adventures does have a tendency to become tiresome due to the lack of variety in each game type.

    Kinect Adventures acts as a decent way to show off your latest hardware purchase to friends, but beyond this there really isn't much reason to bung the disc back into your Xbox.

    Kinect Adventures is a typical tech-demo that comes free with new hardware. It's instantly fun and demonstrates what Kinect can do, but you've seen everything in an hour and it won't take long for you to stop playing altogether. It works though, and for that it's already a fun little game to have. Make the sequel a bit longer and more varied, please.

    Kinect Adventures' set of five games was never designed to innovate, but it clearly fails to do the bare minimum that is necessary for mini-games to have a purpose. Mini-games are fun in small, pint-sized, easy-to-play quantities, and while Adventure succeeds in offering pocket-size entertainment the gameplay is nowhere near interesting enough and fails to capitalise on the novelty of Kinect.

    Wii Sports was fun and showed what was great about its new control scheme. Kinect Adventures, on the other hand, is dull, boring and gives a wrong impression about Kinect.

    I thought it would be the kind of game you try once and then run to buy new games. While it doesn't have a long lasting appeal it's the kind of game I'll play once in a while especially to show my friends how to use Kinect. River Rapids and Reflex Ridge are the best included games. Expand

    lots of fun! my daughter and myself play for hours and it is fantastice excerscise! Great into. to the world of Kinect! A traditional sports game (skiing, volleyball?) would have been cool as well...Ther "River Rapids" is amazing! Expand

    The game is free, that scores it a few points before it even hits the tray. The game helps you acclimate to the Kinect, and lets you have a little fun while you do it. Reflex Ridge can even give you a quick & light cardio workout at harder levels. The rafting game is fun too, but not too responsive. 20,000 leaks is good for cheesy photos and that's about it. Rally Ball is like dodge ball and is fun because you are never really the target. ;) Space Pop is useless, but you can avoid it as much as possible and just pretend it isn't there. This wasn't meant to be an all time hit, just an opening foray into the device. In that respect it delivers pretty well. Expand

    After a few months I finally decided to give in and buy Kinect, mainly because it was £79.99 with 3 months gold free. I'm a casual / hardcore gamer so this might affect my review, you decide that.

    Kinect adventures ships with every Kinect device so this was basically Microsoft's rip off of Wii Sports.

    Firstly this is a full solid game but lacks re playability unless you play with friends or family but don't get me wrong its a great idea to include a game with a device like this as it gets you wanting more!

    Kinect adventures is 5 Games each has different modes but that's about it, nothing too special but at the end of the day it's free so what do you expect?

    The online multiplayer is a good addition to the core game and adds a small extra but not enough to make this game anything other than a ' Launch Title'

    So Kinect Adventures 5 / 10 Online Mode 7/10

    It seems as if Kinect Adventures is included with Kinect to showcase the capabilities of the device rather than provide any substantial gaming experience. It Expand

    We had to slog it out to finish this game. It felt more like a chore than a game, but the shining strong-point is the rafting. That, in my opinion, is totally worth playing. It is an easy achievement grab, and if you look to your right you can buy this game for $1.50. If you bought a Kinect recently you may not of had this bundled with it, so go ahead and buy it. The rafting is worth a buck fitty. Expand

    Kinect is absolute rubbish. The motion is off, unresponsive, and just plain bad. The game is too hard because of the bad motion controls and just isn't fun. I also don't like Xbox very much. Expand
