Perfect

Perfect Kinect Game!

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.

Rise of Nightmares review (xbox 360)

Going into this game having already read the poor reviews I still had hope for this unique kinect/horror genre game. Once I started playing, I was locked in and determined to slash through the whole story. And I did. 5 hours later with some food and soda breaks, I finished it. From the beginning I was enjoying the kinect sensor gameplay except for when I started to face a handful of enemies at a time. I found that the game would confuse my fighting position (arms up) with the hand icon ready to search and interact with items. This then occurred throughout the rest of the game. Also the moving method of turning your shoulders toward where you want to go with one foot out was difficult when under pressure. The story was different and kept changing to help move you along. But all in all I enjoyed the game. Although I would probably not want to play it again. It is worth one good play through.

The overall feel for a Kinetics's game it Really great but like any game it has a Few downfalls that just Fall even more apart as the game go on

Pros
Read Movements like a boss even for the small area I have
great feel with combat, weapons have there pros and cons so a knife feels weak but fast but a hammer feels strong but slow

Cons
Some hair pulling puzzles
Somewhat of a trial and error game
game Just toss you in without telling what movements it wants

It's about 6/10 Rent it don't buy it till it drops in price
