PowerUp Heroes is a fun "beat em up" which shows off the kinect very well!
You can choose between a variety of "super heros" each boasting their own unique super powers.
Think Mortal Kombat (but without the blood and gore!) The fun part being you are in control!
The special moves are easy to master and the various fight modes keeps the game interesting, my only criticism would be the PEGI 12 rating! The action is nothing you wouldn't see in an everyday cartoon!
So suit up! Power up! And kick some butt! You know you want too!

I love this game. It is a really good fighting (tactical) game. Kinect catches up your moves very well and the superpowers are real fun. I played other fighting games on Kinect but so far this one is the best. The "Campaign" is just a series of fights and the learning curve is well balanced. The versus mode is the best where you can fight with your friends in split screen mode. All this at this price makes of this game a MUST have.

PowerUp Heroes was honestly the last Kinect title I thought would work and which I would enjoy. Having seen how the Kung Fu Panda 2 Kinect game miserably failed in the fighting genre, and Fighters Uncaged couldn't get close to delivering a nice fighting game, the market is still wide-open on this field. It was actually one of the first things that came to mind when Kinect was announced: a nice karate/kung-fu title. Well, don't get your hopes up yet, as PowerUp Heroes is still not that fighting title, but it's a great start for a clean-cut beat 'em up, Street Figther, title for the Kinect.

The game is simple enough to understand (though lack of instructions may make it difficult to get the hang of at the beginning); you fight others with special powers, and as you beat them, you take over their power. This power can then be used again to fight your next opponent. The power comes in the form of the suit you wear, and before each match you outfit yourself with 2 suits, meaning you'll have 2 sets of powers. Then you face the music and it's a showdown between you and the opponent.

Combat works in long- and short-distance attacks, and it took me a while to figure this out. The long distance ones are basically the powers your suit provide, and the short ones are common punches and kicking. Follow the instructions onscreen and you'll quickly see how the game works. It is definitely not a major fighting title and I guess those ones are still years away in the making, but it's a great breakaway from other Kinect sporty kind of titles. This game will appeal especially to the younger generation, but for the "warrior" in me, I'd say anyone in for a good display of powers and punches should grab this title.

The first point I'd like to make on this Game is that the Kinect picks up your movements extremely well, more so than any other Kinect game I've played. It really is quite satisfying to pull off the various special moves with such a degree of accuracy. The presentation is fine, the graphics and sounds are fine, so no negatives so far, right? Not quite... Maybe it's just me, but after the my first stint on the game (about an hour or so), I just never felt compelled to play it again. It sat in my collection for a few weeks untouched and overlooked, and has since been traded in at a local games shop. The game itself did absolutely nothing wrong, but I just never felt compelled to go back to it after that first session. So to conclude, the game itself is very well put together and fun to play, the Kinect recognition is very impressive, but I'd just caution you not to expect much longevity and replay value out of it. Cheers.

I was looking forward to a kinect fighting game using your avatar but I was disappointed with this game as there seem to be numerous bugs/faults.
Firstly I install all my games on my Xbox 360 to make them run smoother and give less wear to the disk, this game will not install no matter how hard I try, and a spinning icon will just appear!
The menu system for choosing your suits has a down arrow, but I can't get this to work so I am stuck choosing suits it can fit on screen.
When playing versus you need to put your arm up to select character, I have to kneel down to get it to register this!
My friend couldn't select there avatar and had to use a preset one, taking the point of this game away.
When the game actually gets running it is probably a 3 star game, with some fun to be had.
Is anyone else seeing these errors?!?
