Microsoft XBox 360 Kinect Mini Review

kinectSo I got to try Microsoft’s XBox 360 Kinect motion sensor system and I was quite pleased with it’s first impressions. I was able to play Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventure. Both titles are most probably intended for group play but I had fun playing them solo. Now I only got to play with the Kinect system for a about 40 minutes and this posting is a mini review.

First impression; it was great. The first thing I was questioning about Kinect was it’s ability to capture motion from objects moving back and fourth. As I was playing, I moved my arms back and fourth as well as stepping forward backward and the Kinect system caught my movement. I was surprised at the level of motion sensing the Kinect was achieving.

Now it was FUN and I was working up a sweat while playing the games. This system can be a real winner with the Tai kick boxing ‘game’ that will be released in the near future. Walking into the Kinect Centre, I had decided that the Kinect system was a ‘wait and see’ purchase…something that I wasn’t going to run out and purchase right away. However, after trying Kinect and the $10 discount as well as the inclusion of Kinect Adventure, I decided to pre-order the Kinect system. Unboxing coming November 4th 2010 as well as a full review due November 6th 2010.

  1. [..YouTube..] From what I’ve read, it looks impressive. It’ll take a few months to find and fix all the li’l bugs which are bound to show up. By that time I hope to get one myself. Does it run alright on the older xbox system though? Or should I upgrade to their slim one?

  2. [..YouTube..] Can anyone help me out. Im from Australia and kinect comes out this Thursday. Im still tossing up whether to get it or not. I have it pre-ordered it but im still debating whether to spend 200 dollars on it. What is your opinion and what is your opinion on game choice?

  5. I’ve played both kinect sports and adventures. On both games there is about a 1 to 2 second delay on all of your movements.
