    Not a great game by any means but its much better then I thought it was going to be. The controls work decently and it is fun for a little while but after a couple hours it will start to get real boring. If you can find it cheap (about 15-20 bucks) and you are a fan of swimming then I recommend picking it up.

    A terrible idea, I know that Michael Phelps is a fantastic athlete, but do a game? really?, the biggest problem is the gameplay, imitate that you swimming, but the water? this is a terrible idea for 505 Games, Michael Phelps: Push the Limit is a bad game, the problems? Gameplay, camera, sound, modes of game, the only good are the graphics, but be all. This title need be in the ocean deep... of all the kinect videogames. Expand

    More a case of sink than swim. [Feb 2012, p.91]

    A potentially decent swimming game, but it has some lag related issues and bad design decisions, like the fact that you can't retry races on earlier seasons, which means you can easily get stuck at the start of the third season. [Jan 2012]

    The sloppy gameplay and missing long-term replayability leave it being stuck in the "Kinect gimmick game" pile, rather than standing out.
