Kinect: Sports Island Freedom
9 New from
Bought this as an impulse buy & boy do i regret it, I have played several Kinect games & this is by far the worst one that i have tried. Presentation is sloppy, graphics are average at best but all this could easily be forgiven if the gameplay was good but it's not.
Trying to play a game of tennis only to be stood there swinging your arms as the ball just flies past you & your avatar either just stands there or for some inexplicable reason decides to duck.
Another problem comes when trying to navigate the menus, with every other kinect game i've played you have an onscreen cursor/hand that stays there when you are moving through the screens but for some reason this one only shows the cursor when you are right on top of the button you want to press so you end up guessing where you have to hold your hand & 9 times out of 10 you'll end up selecting the wrong option.
This game really feels like it has been rushed out to cash in on the fact that there aren't many kinect games available right now. If you do want to play it i would strongly advise a rental first or to wait for the price to drop below 15 pound as it is seriously not worth 30+
