    the games pretty dope. Only problem is as the game progresses, naturally it gets harder but the computer becomes faster in response when in close-quarter combat and can be frustrating. this game is awesome for the kinect though. it really gets you going. the 2nd set of character list is like a slap to the face though bc they only change 1 move. EX: lets say the guys name is SCORCH and his moves are flamethrower, fire burst, fire rock, the 2nd list guys name will be SCORCH X and his attacks will be flamethrower, fire burst and shield. that kind of sucked but other than that its a pretty solid game with some redundancy after like 10-20 mins but I was ok with it bc I felt like I was fighting the enemy at times. good game. I'd recommend it Full Review »

    So this will be my first review on here so please be gental. I was looking forward to this game quite a bit. There is something of an inner child which still screams to be a super hero. Unfortunetly powerup heroes didn't fulfil that wish, but thats not a bad thing. Power up heroes does have many flaws, my first complaint about this game is the menu system. It is so hard to navigate around this. It is not the typical hold hand out, touch boob, boob gains a ring, screen changes. It's hold your hand out to the side, try and guess if your in the right bit, and swipe. Secondly, and this may be wrong, but it does what some games fail to do. And that is let you load up 2 profiles and play locally. It was so annoying watching my fiancee gain all these acheivements, why i was signed in as a guest. My final annoyance with this game is the lack out tutorial. And when your in split screen, its near impossible to see the gestures above the required move. That said, This game is so much fun. When you play Hum V Cpu, it does get a little easy. But when playing against another human, this game really shines. Now many of you may not think that judging a game soley on its multiplayer is worthy of an 8. And your right. Even though there is only 3 specials per suit, and 2 suits per fight (6 specials). When you start to get to grips with each suit, you can link some fantastic combos. This game really does have a bit of strategy (though not alot). My overall on this that it won't turn 'core gamers. Pretty much nothing will with Motion Controls, but this does have a good swing at. The single can get repetitive, but with online tourneys and offline multplayer too. This game does extend a bit more. Also theres an Ezio suit which was a hell of a shock too see.

    Power up heroes really is a kids game and if U judge it as that its rather impressive for a Kinect title. There could be more content and more diverse rather than repetitive fighting system, and more game modes. But for a $38 and 13 achievements its not bad. Online community is dead and I struggled to sign in with two profiles, but taking it for what it is, 8/10. Good fun. Full Review »
