The game looks like it would have been fun; however, it would not work in our living room. We have several other Kinect games, and have no issues playing those. If you get outside the "boundaries" of the Kinect sensor, it pauses the game and then does a 3 second count down to resume play. This made the game completely unplayable, as we could not get far enough away in our normal sized living room.
I received and sent this back on the same day. Neither me nor my sons were able to get the game to track correctly. We kept trying to duck under objects, but the sensor would lose us each time we did, then we'd get knocked off the platform. The hand gestures also didn't work well in the menu. My kids were really upset that I sent it back, but the game is fundamentally broken being that they can't control the characters. Really hate leaving this type of review. I have not tried the other wipeout game, so I can't speak on how well it works.
Was fun at first, but nothing more than just a simple jump up and down kinect game with no real substance. Courses are cool but the controls are pretty bad, it often loses you and leaves you jumping up and down like a goofball when nothing happens on the screen.
