Honestly I don't see why everyone thinks its so bad. In my opinion the story goes at a good pace, setting a good enough plot without turning bad. The gameplay might be different sure, but considering it's kinect I wasn't surprised by this. I was surprised by how good it was, and seeing as Kinect is still relatively new for xbox, I think this game is going to open new paths for other games.
So I had high hopes for this game, but like other on here I'm dissapointed. The game is so slow. Not in a loading/lag way, but in a storytelling way. when you do get through the slow cut scenes , it's almost as if you just have a simple shooting gallery. I admit I haven't made it through much of the game, I only met my first townfolk, but I don't know how much more I can take just to see if there is something worth waiting for
