This game is awesome i love it, but i am sending it back tomorrow after 2 weeks with it is an fun game the controlls are great maybe your kinect is messed up i loved this game you can take my word for it.
Well some was ok, but didn't register the moves that well. Graphics were ok but it just wasn't that much fun..if you mess up at all you have to do it over or you can skip. But, it's just a stupid game don't waste your time...or some of you may like it. But I'm glad I rented this and didn't buy it.
Being a fan of the show Wipeout and new to owning a Kinect, I wanted to give Wipeout2 a try. What I found was that it was very fun... looking. The sets were great the stages were fun, but the kinect motion was horrid. It would walk when I was standing still, it would not jump about 2/3 of the time that I would and the overall motion for doing anything above and beyond walking/running was just about as bad. We rented this one for the kids, but returned it before they even got home from school so that their experience would not be ruined by the frustration. I wish I could say that this game lived up to the fun of Wipeout's show.

The game was fun for the entire family...once we figured out how to control the avatars. Graphics were nothing to write home about but the workout was amazing. I will be renting this game again. The only fault I found with it was the controls.
This is a great kinect game! Fixed alot of issues that the first game had kinect tracks you way better and tutorials help alot more on you knowing what to do. Graphics are better also. I was dripping in sweat after i was done.

The sensor was incredibly slow. I have a brand new xbox and other games work great but Wipeout had a lot of issues. I couldn't get my character to stop running, some courses want you to stop or slow down, even after I stopped running my character would constantly keep running right off the edge. Just by lifting a foot in the air, my character would start running. No updates, seems like they just gave up on the game.

Family was looking forward to this game for family night, only to be disappointed. The concept is awesome but the controls are horrible. We ended up frustrated and tired just trying to get passed the first to levels.

This games control should have been better. I bought the first Wipeout and the control on Wipeout 2 was way less accurate. (with the bar set so low already) Im surprised Microsoft's quality control is allowing games like this through. Oh and my Kinect is calibrated very well and the space is well lit in case you were wondering.
