I went to the Kinect launch event last night and picked up Dance Central, Fitness Evolved and Kinect Sports. Well the latter kind of goes without saying as all motion sensor tech seems to be released with a sports game. However this game is much different
There are various sports included as well as mini games, you can play solo against the computer, online(with strangers or Live friends) or local with family and friends
I don't want to compare it to Wii Sports but that's what most people will be comparing it to and let's be honest, that's this games main rival.
So, what does this offer over Wii Sports?
1: It's really involving, particularly in my opinion the table tennis, it feels very real compared to hold a controller and pressing buttons
2: The game has been built really well, from the well made replys to the good AI of computer opponents
3: Fantastic online, i've played a few games with people online and it's really easy to do and fun
4: Good for multiplayer, more so than the Wii as anyone can drop in and out as they please and you can all earn acheivements(if you have logins etc)
Well, mostly if you have more than 1 person playing at once and don't have a large living room you may find sometimes you'll go out of view of the camera or your arm will, plus its possible to easily hit the other person
That's about it really, its a solid, varied game that works well
