    What you're left with is a title which frustrates far more than it excites and therefore can only be recommended to the desperate and the forgiving.

    On paper Motion Sports sounds like a good idea, with a wide variety of events to rival Kinect Sports.
    • 47 Metascore

    Sonic fans will no doubt lap up the game and aim for top marks on all tracks, although it's safe to say some patience and learning is a must. For Kinect hungry gamers, there's something charming on offer, but you might not feel that right away as this is not the most pick up and play Kinect game available.

    Of all the Kinect games to date, Ultimate Workout is definitely the most concise program out there.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Crazy Taxi could last you a while, but most of the game's longevity will come from maximizing your scores, trying to climb the leaderboards, and trying to collect all of the achievements for each of the three game modes.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    The release of this game might be proof that Dragon Ball Z is still relevant to some gamers and that Dragon Ball Z can indeed translate to being a game, but alienating audiences with inaccessible controls and content is highly irrelevant and quite unacceptable for today's standards.

    Ken's Rage is a decent deviation for Koei and has captured the essence of the Fist of the North Star anime and therefore succeeds on that front. However, as an action game the same problems from the Dynasty Warriors games make their presence well felt here as well which ultimately let the game down.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Entertaining perhaps for Mum's and younger girls, as you often get rewarded and confidence boosting comments even for not correctly mirroring the dancer/trainer. The rest though will ultimately find Zumba Fitness a rather uninspiring and contradicting experience.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    If you're after increasing your collection of Kinect launch games, then Crossboard 7 is certainly worth a look at, especially for friends and family to tackle the multiplayer which is where the game is certainly at its most enjoyable.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is, for the most part, an enjoyable action game that is sadly short lived due to its overall length and un-realised, poorly crafted story.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    There's simply not enough variety to hold your interest beyond the first few hours, and only fans and die-hards will likely want to play beyond this.
    • 86 Metascore

    If you are a big fan of the original DJ Hero 1 then there is no question to be asked at all... go out and buy DJ Hero 2 right now. It's more of the same, but better.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    UnderGarden feels like an artsy game made by a bunch of businessmen, rather than an artist.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With its innovative online features and realistic fight system, EA's first attempt at MMA lays down a solid foundation that's worth checking out.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    With some killer moves, excellent Kinect tracking, some decent dance tracks and whole lot of attitude; Konami's dance game offers accessible and encouraging entertainment for solo or a group of players. The only real let downs are a lack of recognisable tunes and no learning mode.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Despite a few hiccups with the tracking and an unorthodox handling of the vehicles, Joyride is a solid racing game at heart.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Filling the void in the games market and giving fans enough of everything they could possibly ask for, Def Jam Rapstar is possibly the surprise sleeper hit of the season. It won't appeal to everyone given the genre of music it represents, but for those it does appeal to, appeal to them it most certainly will.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The inclusion of stealth gameplay is surprising and welcome, but the fighting is the main event here and works well enough.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    All in all, Rock Band 3 represents the pinnacle of the music game genre to this point.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Criterion Games' arcade racing expertise has certainly paid dividends here, combined with DICE's input, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is an absolute essential purchase on both the single-player and multiplayer front.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Treyarch have done a fine job with Black Ops. Not only does the game retain its Call of Duty aesthetic appeal, and pushes all of the series strengths seemingly as far as they can go, but now other aspects of the game are also to this high standard.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Crammed full of features, diverse gameplay, energetic combat and the basic stealth/action the series is renowned for and you have a killer of a game for fans and newcomers alike.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    So, is there any reason to dive into Blood Stone? Well, if you're a Bond fan and like the genre of stealth/action that Splinter Cell has perfected, and have a spare weekend to fill, then you will find that the 5 hours you spend playing the game will be enjoyable enough to warrant a rental.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Kinect Adventures does a wonderful job at showing off the tech. It is a game that can be played for some quick solo fun, but the fast paced action is better enjoyed with a friend.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Dance Central is a great entry into new realms for Harmonix and those who have picked up Kinect.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Super fast and super addicting best describe Pinball FX 2 and the gameplay experience you'll receive.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Kinectimals is definitely a game recommended just to show off how clever Kinect can be with a little imagination. For older gamers and adults, there's certainly enough charm to win you over, but perhaps not enough substance to keep you glued to the TV for long periods or after the initial novelty wears off.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's a highly recommended piece of software and one that does a great job of showcasing Kinect's ability to go beyond the game.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's cool, fun and full of sporting attitude which is incredibly hard not to fall in love with.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Undead Nightmare is an exceptional piece of DLC, that not only raises the bar for all add-on content to follow, but also wraps up the truly fantastic experience that is arguably Rockstar's finest work to date, Red Dead Redemption.
