I have had a lot of fun with this one. it will beat you into the ground. and you will get a great workout from it. Sometimes its unresponsive, but you need to learn the controls and play the tutorial to figure it out. I guarantee that everyone who gave this game a bad review had their mind made up before they even played it. Take time and learn the game, and you will be rewarded greatly. It has it's flaws here and there, but its the first fighting game of its kind. I hope for a sequel, that is cleaned up and pays more attention to the story, but all in all, it's a start, and a dang good one.
20 minutes of game play till it's back in the mail

Title says it all. I give all games a chance. Most of my favorite games are ones no one has heard of. It IS a workout if you get it for that sole reason. The lack of journey makes it uber lame. You learn the moves, and then you fight the same guys over and over again. There is ZERO point to you winning battles, just the sake of you being deemed the "winner." I was hoping for something like Mortal Kombat with a tournament tree at the least, but nay, NOTHING, just fighting. And yes, flailing your body around lands you more hits than actually trying as most other reviews claim. I'm certain my next game (Kung Fu Panda 2) will be 4 times as good of a Kinect fighting game than this one.
This game was fun, but the lag time using the kinect was a bit discouraging. Trying to dodge punches was the only drawback. I don't think it was the game so much as it was the kinects scensor. It was a great workout.
