    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'm aAfter 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

    This is a OK minigame, obviously nothing I would put over my main games (EG Halo 4, Skyrim). Graphics could need a little work and glitchesThis is a OK minigame, obviously nothing I would put over my main games (EG Halo 4, Skyrim). Graphics could need a little work and glitches almost produce a humorous effect. It's not just in the game, but in the device itself. But, to the game. The game modes are appealing and give easy Achievement Points, almost to a point where it's plain boring (Received 10 or so credits for playing with 2 players). It's not a serious dedication game, just something to whip out during a party when small talk fails Expand

My first impressions was that this game is trying to be the Wii. Here we see simple games and kid/family friendly. I guess points for replicating the feel of Nintendo however this is also a minus, as I do not enjoy that style and is the prime reason I own a majority of my games on non Nintendo consoles. Regarding the games I felt they were simple and uniquely fun for the most part but also quite similar in gameplay to each other. I felt the in game tutorials were a little bit too fast to learn as a complete noob however think after repeated games this should not be an issue. The kinect sensor was fine and I had no motion capture related complaints. I should note that this was my first kinect game so I made sure to do as many calibration set ups as I could find before starting. I found out surprisingly that being 10 ft away was very important to allow the sensor to capture your full body. At the end of sampling this disc I would say there is one game I enjoyed that seems unique enough from everything else on the market. The other games seem like the majority of kinect games, just move here move there follow the coins and jump. Too simple and lame unless you are a younger child, I would surmise. I guess this is what kinect is going for though, stealing away younger nintendo fans. The game also contains something I find very creepy. It takes photos of you during gameplay and makes a photo album automatically without your permission. If they made this an option that'd be ok I guess but to find out it's just doing that imo is horrifically in bad taste. I feel capturing images are for memories and so this kinda feels like Microsoft is now portraying being a parent, and taking over that responsibility is why I find it in very bad taste. Those memories should come from people only, and only close people, with permission. Expand
