Possibly as good as its predecessor !
on 29 October 2011
Lots and lots of fun.The new voice controls work pretty well.Golf is really excellent.Tennis feels just a bit unengaging but not bad at all.Darts is fun and very sensitive; the developer, Rare, have done a great job there.I even enjoy the Football(american version) though still not entirely sure just what's going on.Baseball is a lot of fun.Skiing is exhilarating..and a nice little touch here, spectators can raise their arms..and listen for cow bells !!
One slight downer for me is there seems to be bit too much celebrating going on , but its okay.
The controls have definitely tightened up from the previous Kinect Sports.
Plenty of licensed music, more than Kinect Sports.
Overall.. very, very good.
HAVE UPDATED MY STAR RATING FROM 4 TO 5 STARS.THERE ARE MORE SUBTLETIES TO SEASON 2 THAN AT FIRST MEETS THE EYE.(eg. try jumping with the ball in Football to avoid being tackled.In baseball there are some other, unannounced, ways to pitch the ball)
ALSO WITH THE 6 NEW MINI-GAME DLC JUST ANNOUNCED(AND FREE), ITS A 5 FROM ME.
UPDATE:as another reviewer pointed out (SJP on 20th Nov 2011)the golf for me often sticks on Observation.Seems no way out of it.Hope you are listening Microsoft, and can issue a software patch.
UPDATE: Seem to have totally fixed the above glitch..simply by placing my Kinect sensor a little higher!
