Very frustrating Kinect controls. This shouldn't be a Kinect game.

Horrible

Awful controls

I wanted this game to be good so bad I ignored the 4.0 rating. The controls are impossibly clunky and non-responsive. Not worth playing.

The game looks pretty good, the storyline is not bad, the game itself held so much potential as the only thing I found wrong was the kinect controls. Now this isnt to say the kinect itself is bad but rather the sensitivity of the controls in game where terrible.

I tried to adjust the sensitivity several times but no matter what I did I was plagued from the start of the game with poor detection. Many times when I pulled the panel out to open the vents or when trying to move back and forth to adjust speed and etc... I would have the game either not recognize the movement I was doing or I would have it repeat the movement several times over. Ultimately this would lead to failed actions such as pulling the small panel the right out just to turn on the lights. Or even pushing myself away from the veiwer to hit high speed gear or change ammo. Everything was such a severe chore it all but destroyed my enjoyment of the game with just these simple yet repeatably used actions that where needed to properly function in battle.

I believe this would have be an excellent game had it skipped those minor actions and avoided running into complications with potentially poor kinect detection.
