I recommend you rent this game just because there is so many bad reviews here but I honestly had no problems playing everything. I wonder if the users with bad reviews have an old style Xbox. I initially had a white Xbox but shortly after getting the Kinect it crapped out on me with lockups and RROD so I had to get a new Slim. Ever since I got the new Xbox every Kinect game I own plays alot better so I'm wondering if accuracy issues are due to the original Xbox having to use the power adapter. I did have 9 games prior to getting the new Xbox so I did have quite a few games to see a accuracy difference on.
if you have x box live they send a patch thru to update the game controls, they are are not as perfect as kinect sports but they are still good enough that you dont notice very often, the only game i had some trouble with controls is the soccer but i didnt play it very much to see if it was the controls or me.

I have read the other reviews and have come to an conclusion that this game does not require any simplified controls. The controls are just fine and the instructions are simple to follow. What do you want a learning curve? Did you take right off on your bike the first time you rode it? Please be patient in learning the controls and this game will be just fine for you. The game play is fun depending on what selection you decide. I like the hang gliding the best because it feels like there is a "kinection" with you actually flying in the system. My daughter loves the horseback riding. We both adored the skiing but both got a little winded from the long track, but the controls were right on. This game is truly fun with people, probably not so much alone. Also you must truly immerse yourself to the gameplay because you have to unlock future levels which this may take some time. The menu screen is very quick and responsive to your hand commands. One last thing that kept me and my daughter laughing is that the game records video of you playing and replays it back in fast motion. The game will also put photos of you in the game on billboards. Really this game is not that bad and definitely would not rate it as bad as a "1" like some others just because of controls...maybe try readjusting something!
