Perfect

I loved this game!

Such a fun game. I thought the Kinect worked fine. If you get into it and play, it works. Do the arm motions to attack and actually kick to knock back enemies. This presented a brand new experience for me and I've played lots of games. I played this back to back with Dead Island. Very similar style games with weapons. This isn't as grand scale as the aforementioned, but holds its own in experience. This is my favorite Kinect game. Just bought it today finally.

If you don't enjoy this game, sell your Kinect RIGHT NOW, because this is THE BEST THE KINECT CAN DO!

This game is great, and the best Kinect title for an adult, so far. Great interactive controls, great scary theme, good story, and definitely hours of playable fun.

Like all Kinect titles it takes some time to get the movements perfect, and even then walking forward (putting your foot forward) doesn't always work. Solution = put a small box in front of you to rest your foot on.

If you play on a nice 70+ inch tv, this is the closest to VR immersion you can do right now, so enjoy and stop complaining.

This is one awesome kinect game. If you ever wondered what it would be like to survive and escape from a mad scientist mansion, then you should try this game. Theres nothing like fighting zombies and mosters with your own arms and legs. Absolutely awesome :D controls work great, story is ok, combat is exciting and the overall enviroment is creepy and dark. Most reviews i've seen are very superficial and untrue. This is a game that offers a great experience that i have not seen since i played house of the dead in the arcades. But this is way better than that. it is not a perfect game, but it sure paints the picture for what we can expect from kinect games in the future.
