Fair

Uhm...

Only played the demo so far, but it didn't look good. Combat was flawless and fun. The concept is interesting. The game ads were amusing. But the movement controls... Ugh. Maybe it's cause my kinect sensor was too far back initially. But it the game has trouble telling "I'm moving forwards" from "I'm moving backwards". Even in just the demo this proved to be a major stumbling block. Maneuver through a set of buzz saws by timing when to go forwards? Sure, no problem.

Turn around and fight a group of zombies first, then go through the traps? Big problem because instead of letting you move away from the traps, you move backwards into the trap. Over. And over. And over. And over...

I think this game was better than expected! I'm really hoping for more of this kind of thing to be available. Fighting the zombies was really fun and all the movements were pretty accurate once you got the hang of it. It's definitely worth the rent and I hope to see more up and coming games like this!
