4.0 out of 5 stars A new breed of horror game? 21 Sep 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Rise of Nightmares is a horror game controlled entirely with Kinect.
You play as Josh- an alcoholic- on holiday with his wife as a last ditch attempt to save his marriage.
Whilst travelling through Eastern Europe the train is attacked and de-railed, and his wife kidnapped, leaving him and the other survivors stranded in a dark forest. They seek refuge in an ominous looking castle..........


The most important thing to consider is whether or not you'd feel comfortable with the control scheme, as it does require some degree of co-ordination on your part.

From a standing (neutral) position, by placing either foot forward - your character (in game) moves forward, similarly by placing a foot backwards you move backwards.

Turning is achieved by twisting your shoulders (to the left/right).
To interact - just hold one hand out, to fight - put both hands up like a boxer.

The controls felt awkward at first, but became more instinctive after a few hours play. It's responsive and Kinect picks up movements well.

The `auto walk' option (activated by raising your right hand) helps if you're struggling, (although I rarely used it).
It also helps to point you in the right direction if ever you're unsure where to go next. But it can't be used in certain rooms (those with traps.)
Head-tracking works in cutscenes and side-stepping during boss-fights only.

When fighting, you automatically lock on to the nearest enemy, health recovers gradually, you can defend (by crossing your arms), and can only hold one main weapon at a time - which can degrade and break.

There's a variety of one/two handed and projectile weapons (axes, chainsaws, explosives etc) and a few other `special surprises'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Persevere With This Game...... 14 Sep 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
.......it's alot of fun once you get the hang of the control mechanic. I did wonder if I'd made the right choice in buying this game this evening but the assistant at my local Asda store said he'd refund me if I didn't like it, unusual but I took him up on his offer and purchased the game.

Initially I made sure the Kinect was properly calibrated, takes a few minutes but is well worth doing. Once the game starts take your time and learn the onscreen prompts for the movement etc, it doesn't take long , although having said that, my initial reaction was that the graphics were pretty good but how am I gonna learn and remember the various moves.....shouldn't have worried as once the story starts you are prompted all the way through and after about 10 or 15 minutes I was instinctively and almost automatically playing the game and starting to enjoy the title.

The game is pretty gory and bloody , I wouldnt say I was scared but I did get the feeling of the hair standing up on the back of my neck a few times in the half hour I played it.

Give it a chance people and persevere with it for around 20 to 30 minutes and you will get the hang of the controls and really get into the game. A great title in my opinion and hopefully the start of things to come. I like the sports titles but I wanted something different to do with the Kinect and this title has certainly given me food for thought and should see the Kinect take gaming in a different and fun direction. Excellent stuff, enjoy everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Promising Future for Kinect Games 24 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The controls for this can sound daunting but in truth I got used to them within the first 15-30 minutes of play. At the beginning you are rather concious of the 'lag' from when you perform an action to when the game carries it out, however within the first 45-60 minutes I found that I no longer noticed a lag... I reckon it's so small that you can begin to unconsciously predict it and time your moves accordingly.

Surprisingly for me at least, I found the story better than I had first expected, the game takes the time to set the scene and guides you through with decent cut-scenes. The graphics are in a sort of 'House of the Dead' style in which the gritty style seems well suited to the game.

There is a wide variety of weapons which is good, and the game is pretty good at getting the targeting of individual limbs correct which proves helpful if your foe has a particular fleshy part you want to target - usually the head is a good bet :)

In addition to the storyline you can find 'tapes' left by a detective who was here before you and your group, and these were pleasantly interesting to listen to. I found myself scouring every area to make sure I didn't miss one because they always left me wanting to know what happened next.

The variety of enemies is good and some well thought out variations require some thought before you tackle them. For example if you find a banshee (who's screams making you have to cover your ears - a great touch as Kinect recognises this) you will be vulnerable to non-banshee enemies who will attack you undeterred by the screaming while you are still covering your ears.
