rented this for the kids but i have been testing the kinect games myself to see how difficult the controls are before they play them. the games that i played on minute to win it , i was not going to let my kids play. one of the games is called "hows it hanging?" where you have a banana hanging between your legs and you have to make thrusting motions to hit an orange with the banana into a square. i was surprised to see this was rated E for everyone. a group of older friends with a lot of patience would probably get a kick out of it but it wasn't worth my time.

I played this a little while myself-it was fun, fairly easy challenges-like kicking a ball in the air, balancing stuff, etc. When I finally talked my 11 year old son and his friend into playing, guess what the first game was?! "How's it hanging?" where contestants have to pretend they have bananas tied on strings from their waists, between their legs, and use them to hit balls into targets. Sure, the boys giggled, but I cringed thinking of them telling others about playing it at my house. Second game? "That Blows"-granted, that one was just pumping up a balloon to blow cups off of a table, but still...
I was sadly disappointed when the game arrived. I could not wait to play!
The game is super sensitive and non-responsive. I found this to be true with a lot of the Kinect games. It follows your movements and then is skips or jumps or loses up and you have to be found again. Very frustrating.
