Really Bad

Twitchy and Lame

When you think of fighting you think of scrapping on the play yard, full blown swings and wild antics. Well this game delivers wild antics and no full blown swinging. Kinect is suppose to give you the range of motion and have your on-screen persona mimic what is going on. This is not what happens and rarely do your movements get translated on-screen.

First of all your punches and kicks may as well be like pressing a button because you are only triggering a predetermined animation from the on-screen character. It does not move with you or perform the moves in an animation that flows through you like Dance Central or any of the other Kinect Games. The best way I can say is that this game moves as if you were playing a clumsy robot on screen.

So we all know that you are not going to do kick flips and space is limited, but a Kinect fighting game should feel like you are fighting. If you moved your arm up in any fashion you would still throw a punch. Can't get your leg off the ground? Twitching your muscle will cause the fighter to kick. This is just a controller fighting game without movement.

Where and when will we get a game where the fighter and the player are one. The moves you perform outside the game are the ones your fighter performs in the game? Training in this game should feel like you are taking some form of Martial Arts.

If you are looking for a fun experience that only kinda uses the Kinect technology then pick this up. It's fun for a bit and it is super short. If you want some hard core fighting I would suggest waiting for a real fighting game or head on down to your local YMCA and pick up a few Taekwondo classes.

First off, the game is known to have a story line but in reality the story line is barely even used! Second off, this guy in the game has a mind of his own and barely does what I do, and not to mention he doesn't react fast enough. I'm doing rapid punching and he's standing there getting beat up. Honestly - the character corresponds to my movements like five minutes later. This game is NOT a keeper, I mean it would be alright to rent for FREE and play for 20 minutes but that's it. The only reason I got a good workout is because I kicked so many times to see if he would react to atleast one kick, guess what.. He did! I kicked like seven times and he only kicked twice.

Bad game, PERIOD! I thought maybe i would give this game a chance; even though all of the reviews said not to. They were so right!! I would kick, the game would punch. I would punch, the game would fall down or kick... WOW!! If you seriously cant do better than this then why even try? I would not even buy this game if it was on the 99 cent rack... Thank you Gamefly! You saved me alot of money!! I even invited a friend over to try it and see if it was just me, but nope he couldnt even get the game to follow him. It was actually kinda funny when he sat down and the game just kept kicking. We won a match by not even playing.. DO NOT EVEN RENT THIS GAME! You will be sorry if you do..
