First 10 Minutes: Kinect Adventures

First 10 Minutes: Kinect Adventures

Next out is the game included with the Kinect sensor, Kinect Adventures. Inside you'll find a video showing the five different mini-games and me doing some waving. We'll have more Kinect videos later tonight.

the other games seem suioted for kids, but the space water games looks hard.

I hope this is not the standard of motion gaming in the future. My kids will enjoy this along with the dance games, mini games, party games, rail games but it's not going to be my cup of tea.

Kinect to me is another word for "lag".

Seriously, I have been playing this game for hours and..., I can't even explain how bad this is.

Try it yourself. Also try the rollercoaster ride stuff-thingy and u'll see what I mean.

Felt like a kid having discovered games when i played the both the raft and assault course game.Fun if played with a mate and providing you give it a chance.In any case played with anticipation for each of the actions required, the delay on some of these early launch games isn't as pronounced.After 15 or so rounds on those jumping ducking courses with a mate, i can truly say that it was the most competitive fun iv'e had with a mate and took me right back to when i first started to game.I can see how it maybe doesn't appeal but it was massively fun for me

Lots of potential here and the lag itself from the animation transistion because clearly it can track 1 to 1 joint tracking- as shown to you when setting up

The games so far are really to demonstrate and cater for those not normally into playing games and so it's easy enough to come to the conclusion that something is crap.I went in thinking it would be simple fun and it was

I didn't honestly think i'd like Dance Central but it's great fun as totally unexpected that is

Providing the potential is met, Kinect has a place on 360.For now i'll be playing Halo, Vanquish and Bayonetta until the second wave hits and just perhaps there will be something truly great- Child of Eden

That all said, i'm not sure i could play these types of games every day if it were the same incredibly exausting but fun experience.Definitely a fun time playing this way but i'm hoping to sit down for those next games- at least a few anyway.Certainly a good way to getting in shape though if you're consistent with how often it is you're playing

We shall see

I agree. I just look at it as another, completely different experience. I still have battlefield. I still have Halo and Gears. I still have Uncharted and God of War. I just now have a very fun and, for the moment, physical experience too. Very different than anything else, and when the hybrid games come...

    Tiz @Sdarts: Industry Icon is not usually for one game, but your contribution to the gaming industry I feel. There are several developers that I feel deserved it before Kojima I should have said. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And heck one of my main complaints about the Monkey Island 1 remake is that you can't play the talky version with the OG graphics. Pixels don't offend me. (24 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A GOG version would be.. pretty much ScummVM. And you totally do not need HD assets to enjoy LucasArts games. Played Sam & Max Hit the Road like two months ago. It's still beautiful. (24 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If only GOG had a version. Either way, an HD remaster made just to work with new systems and some HD assets is all I need. (27 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Lost the CD a long time ago between movings. I have used ScummVM and VirtualBox before, but playing though a window or fullscreen at very low resolutions does more harm than good. (29 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: If you have the original you can just play it with ScummVM :) (44 minutes ago)
