This is far one of my favorite games ever!. Out of my kinect games, this one is the most intriguing, and the controls are solid and always work for me. The story is fun, it is house of the dead meets deadly premonition. It's silly raunchy fun, and even can be scary, bizarre, and just weird. I completed the game in 3 days on the easiest difficulty. There is 3 more difficulties after that. There are collectibles to find as well, tarot cards, and tapes. The tapes are a side story, a guy narrates his time through out the haunted mansion. After you beat the main game, there is an extra act you unlock. You have to escape within the allotted time, and it tells you how many calories you have lost, which is great for those tracking their calorie intake. My whole family played the game at several interval, and we all had a blast. The way you interact with the world, side stepping from enemies, opening doors, searching bloody toilets, shooting azoth, out of your hands, it feels so imerrisive than any other game I've played. This game requires alot of energy, as you will be kicking punching, and pushing away zombies. This is one of my favorite games ever, it is reminiscent of Alice Madness Returns, Deadly Premonition, House of the Dead, and Clock Tower, it was worth 50$ and it was a fun time playing it, and will be in the future!

Sega has nailed it and I hope this becomes the blue print for Kinect games. The controls do take a little time to get used too, but once learned you will have a blast.

The Pros, fluid movment that keeps you on your toes responsive attacks, and a great sense of horror with a decent story

Cons, bland enviorments and not alot of interactions with in them

all together Sega has created a believeable blue print that every developer should take notice. I give it a 7

Guys the game is fantastic. It is the most interactive kinect game yet. Its scary at moments, and it really keeps you aware with all the killing. This game is great, and the gameplay is smooth. Probably the best kinect game out. It reads your body movements great as well.
