Our videos of Kinect Sports Rivals

Our videos of Kinect Sports Rivals

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.

The face and body scanning technology in this looks impressive. Was that an accurate avatar it created for whoever it was it scanned?

More or less. Ghost_Deus' avatar here looks like him but as for me, when I tried it at home, it couldn't have been more different. I mean, it kept seeing me with dark hair whereas I'm blond-haired... Facial features looked nothing like mine either. Weird.

they always look good in proper videos but when you get it home its nowhere near as good

i went on my friends and it looked nothing like me, did not pick most of my features up or anything

the game is pretty much a bore as well tbh

I love how the face scanning part makes everyone look super chubby. I'm also super impressed by how well it does with tracking the face in that part.
