    While Fru might not be as long as you would like, it’s still a phenomenal experience which every Kinect owner should purchase.

    FRU absolutely delighted me with its ingenuity and elegance. It has gone on to become not only a surprisingly enjoyable indie gem, but one of my absolute favorite exclusives for the Xbox One, and one of my favorites of all time.

    FRU delivers the game that the Kinect needs to remain as a viable device. The clever set of mechanics that are on offer means that if you have a Kinect currently gathering dust, you owe it a game of FRU.

    This game uses Kinect as it was meant to be used: it is technically amazing, and it takes you to another world in which not your brain, but also your body plays a big part. The game is funny, the puzzles are smart and that makes the shortness of it a bit of a let-down, in a positive way though.

    Short yet very intense, FRU is the best reason you should reconnect Kinect to your Xbox One.

    FRU definitely is one of the best and more innovative games for Kinect, entertaining both alone and with friends. If you've got a Kinect connected to your Xbox One, this is a must buy.

    It’s sad that Fru came out so long after the Kinect was a viable gaming peripheral. Had it released closer to the Xbox One’s launch, we might’ve been able to laud it as a reason to own a Kinect. As is, it’s a solid little puzzle-platformer that might be worth a look if you haven’t packed your Kinect away—assuming you ever got one in the first place.

    One of the most unique puzzle platformers I've ever played. Via Kinect, your silhouette is onscreen, revealing a second world. It's up to youOne of the most unique puzzle platformers I've ever played. Via Kinect, your silhouette is onscreen, revealing a second world. It's up to you to contort your body to solve the puzzles by revealing or concealing obstacles between the two worlds, thereby enabling the onscreen protagonist to traverse the levels. The coolest part, though, is the bonus mode available if you find all the collectibles: it unlocks the original developer mode, including co-op play! Very neat. Expand

    If Kinect had come out the box with games like FRU, I think the lifespan of the device would have been very different. Genius mechanics,If Kinect had come out the box with games like FRU, I think the lifespan of the device would have been very different. Genius mechanics, challenging puzzles, and a great art style. This is an excellent multiplayer title for when you have friends over - hand the controller back and forth and take turns helping your friend across a chasm, or get them stuck in a wall accidentally!

    If you like 2D platformers, this is your kind of stuff.

    Pretty much own and/or have played every 360 and Xbox One Kinect game as my achievement list can attest to.

    FRU is easily in the top 3 of all Kinect games in terms of originality, innovativeness and pure fun - next to The Gunslinger and the original Dance Central. My only gripe is the length. You literally want to keep playing - it's just that much fun. If you get any game for the Kinect, you owe it to yourself to play this one.
