If we had been told we would have fun playing Kinect Sports Rivals, we probably would have had a hard time believing it, but against all odds we did. That being said, that is mainly true for two of the available sports, namely the jet ski and rock climbing events, which clearly are the most fun of the bunch. The other four are unfortunately quite disappointing because of some latency issues or the displeasing feeling that we're on auto-pilot and not in control - the shooting and bowling events being the ones we have in mind. You'll also need quite a bit of room if you want to play correctly, which is not something all gamers have at home. Fun but still highly perfectible is what will probably remain of this new episode in the Kinect Sports series.
@Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (13 minutes ago)
@droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (21 minutes ago)
If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (1 Hour ago)
@Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (1 Hour ago)
Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (1 Hour ago)
@MrWhite: That's not what happened. He couldn't see the ball, so he first stepped a bit to the left to see where the ball was... (1 Hour ago)
Croatia's keeper's a bit shite too. At least try to dive and not sit on your arse. (1 Hour ago)
