Not as bad as they make it seem

I was apprehensive when I started reading reviews on the game and it (the game) was being put down left and right. I was excited when I saw the preview for this game as it looked twisted and it was for kinect. After playing through the campaign and comparing what was said about the game and what I had actually experienced, I almost totally disagree with the reviews that Rise of Nightmares received. The pace of the game is pretty slow but it works well with what is going on and the motion controls were responsive as could be. One thing that i do agree with the review was that the campaign was rather short but that doesn't really take away from the fact that you have a different kind of game here. This game is worth a rent and if you are looking for something a little different from the norm, here it is.

Critics sometimes can be harsh. The game did have a poor score reviews from most major gaming sites however I wanted to play a Kinect game, not a game full of mini-games. Was this finally a good kinect game? Yes! You see, this is an early kinect game, so it does has a bit of awkwardness to it however it has two great things. One, that is indeed a fun game. The controls are really not that bad, the moving is overall pretty good and the fighting is a lot of fun. Two, it shows what the kinect can really do and to be excited for future titles such as this one. I would really rent this game and try it out. I was laughing and have a pretty fun time with the game. It is only one of a handful of games that is full game and not just doing a bunch of mini stuff. I think you will enjoy it. Give it a try!
