Kinect Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure may look like just another licensed family-friendly game but you’ll find that there’s something special here to keep kids of all ages coming back…
If you already own a Wii or PlayStation Move, you’re likely all too familiar with the wide world of motion-controlled sports. Maybe you’re not one of those crazies who impaled their 52” LCD with a Wii-mote trying to bowl a strike, but you’ve probably participated in plenty of arm-flailing archery, tennis, golf, boxing, and even not-quite-sports such as tossing Frisbees at Wii puppies. Despite the oversaturation of gamepad-dismissing athletics, Microsoft is getting into the game with Kinect Sports...
Here comes another compilation of sports related minigames for another motion control peripheral on another of our beloved game consoles. By now it might be hard to tell the difference between games like Wii Sports, Sports Champions, and Kinect Sports since, as of this point, each respective system has covered all of their bases in terms of minigames in the major sporting events. We’ve all played tennis, baseball, golf, and even skied down some slopes on the Wii and PS3, but now it’s Kinect’s turn. Does Kinect Sports: Season Two’s controller-free gestures make for a better experience than the competitors, or is it just the same old walk down a far too familiar, sports equipment laden road?
It’s not the lightsaber game we were hoping for, but it comes darn close. Plus, the rest of it is actually pretty fun…
Borrowing a page from PlayStation Move’s EyePet, Microsoft has launched the achingly adorable Kinectimals alongside the new motion-sensing peripheral. To avoid suffocating in this entry’s all-consuming cuteness during extended play sessions, we had to continually remind ourselves to play it from a parent’s perspective. You see, the game’s as sweet as that bit of un-dissolved hot chocolate at the bottom of your cocoa mug and as cute as a button sewn onto a cuddly teddy bear sitting in a giant pink beanbag chair...
Welcome to your own personal time machine – you can pick any year you like, as long as it’s... 1995. Bizarrely, we mean this in the best possible way; the mid-nineties were a golden age for 2D fighters and everything that made them – and SNK – great is right here.
For a lot of us, SNK’s fighting games were usually followed up with a slice of pizza and a romp in the ball pit, mostly because our cheap-o parents weren’t interested in spending thousands on a Neo Geo and games. Jerks. While the SNK of old has dissolved, their fighting games have carried on, getting a little better with every incarnation. Their latest King of Fighters won’t set the gaming world on fire, but if you’re looking for a vintage taste of the old-school, look no further.
As far as generic names that videogames call the protagonist so they don't need to give the main character an actual name, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning's "The Fateless" might be the best. Thankfully, that's only one of the great things about Reckoning, a game that proves there's room to grow in the action RPG genre...
