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.
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.
Probably better for a family, but, my boyfriend and I did get a few laughs out of playing. The game's "controls" (movements) are not entirely natural which leads to a lot of needless falling into the water or getting smacked by obstacles but, it is Wipeout after all. We also had some trouble with the Kinect sensing us which we do not experience with our other Kinect games. This lead to more falling in the water and forced us to restart the game a couple of times. Ok to try, but, wouldn't buy.
