PLEASE AVOID AT ALL COSTS !!!!
on 27 November 2010
Having waited anxiously for this new kinect game to arrive yesterday , unwrapping it , placing it in my Xbox 360 to load up and play i was immediately disappointed ..
the first thing that happened was trying to set up the game . in one instance my hands seemed to be crossed over and so the right and left seemed to be switched to opposite sides of the tv screen which resulted in frustration trying to navigate the menus..
After a painstaking few minutes setting up a game i was now ready to enjoy the game in one of the 10 events.
Archery was my first port of call....and this is where the disappointment set in. I could not aim straight to target the bull, my player was moving all over the place even though i was stood still!!!!
The next event was the tennis ... My avatar could not hit the ball everytime i swung my arm in the direction of the recieving ball , he seemed to crouch low down even though i was stood up ... after wasting another few minutes trying to figure out whether it was me or the game i decided to choose another event ....
Slalom... This event did look promising during the tutorial and practice and so after about 10 minutes perfecting the tricks i decided to go outright for the main event ... How wrong was I ??!!!!
The avatar simply kept carrering off to the right everytime i decided to accelerate forwards , the tricks would not work even though they did in practice...
By this stage of playing this game i was getting somewhat frustrated and initially thought it was the actual kinect sensor that was to blame ............ the missus even threatened to get rid it and my 360 in place of the Ps3 and the move attachment !!!!!!!!!! so i decided to google the game for review.
Most the reviews gave me a good idea that i was not alone in thinking this game is absolute pants !!!!!!!
let this be a warning to all the gamers who think about purchasing this .
Gamespot gave it a score of 3.0/10
