Not even worth a rent

I rented this out of curiosity, and it was nothing but a waste of time. Sure, it was fun to see my family members flail their arms like a fish out of water, but the fun fizzled faster than it takes to send this game back. It takes forever to load a versus match, which is dumb considering you have to install every Xbox One game.

Using Kinect to navigate through the menus is a chore. When you select 'rematch,' for example, you have to push your hand forward then pull back. When you pull back, if you move slightly off the plane, it will deselect it.

The jabs, ducking, kicking are all super responsive, hooks are hit or miss, and the combos happen too often (hit the same punch three times = instacombo). There are these other finisher combos I never bothered to learn. They happen when your character is about to die, but it doesn't really matter.

You could spend hours learning and mastering the moves, combos and whatnot, but all it takes is an energetic opponent to rain down high and low punches that you'll never be able to counter.

This is a terrible game and not worth the time it'll take for you to get another game in the mail.

I can't begin to describe how terrible the controls work in game. I am relatively pleased with the new Kinect in controlling my X1, however, as soon as I placed this game in, I was immediately reminded of how much I had began to hate my original kinect on 360.

Not worth it

Generally i am not much of a critic, but this game is honestly not fun.

I expected more out of this game. I mean yeah it does register the punches, but you have no idea about the moves needed for a combo. So, you are just flapping around with no idea on what to do.

So, do yourself a favor, and dont bother. Wait for a better fighting game cause is this one is not good enough.
