Customer Reviews of Kinect Sports 2: Season Two
we love the games in this
Fun to play11/1/2013
We bought this for our son & family as a Christmas present. They seem to like it allot. Fun because adults and the 6 year old granddaughter can all have fun playing with it. I bought this game as a fan of the first game. The games all require a greater time commitment but ultimately it's a lot of fun. The mini games are also a blast.
Overall not as good as Kinect Sports 1. Some of the games, especially Tennis, has such a huge lag time that your return misses even when you know you hit the ball on time. It's just about the most frustrating thing to play. You know it's almost certainly not a Kinect speed problem, because Table Tennis in Kinect 1, works far better and is eminently playable. Of all the Games, Golf, is probably the best implementation of all. Football and Baseball are both pretty good. Skiing is not as responsive as you would wish, but it is still fun once you get used to anticipating the alternating path and get an early start on turning your skis. Tennis is the biggest problem here since I really looked forward to it hence my big disappointment in Sports 2. Both Sports games suffer from some really horrible "Leg Mangling" during the avatar views which is inexcusable for programs of this quality and cost. Also, exiting the games and shutting down the Kinect takes frustratingly long since you have to go through 6-8 different menus. The use interface was not properly tested except with the very engineers who designed and wrote the code. Big mistake and inexcusable.
we love football and baseball and tennis the most. very engaging and you get quite a workout. great fun for the whole family ! wish they had basketball added
great for family fun night5/21/2012

Excellent Game, Fun For The Whole Family5/9/2012
This game is great fun for the whole family. We can't stop playing it! The graphics are average, but the whole 'hands-free' thing is very cool. And the kids love it too! Our friends came over to play it and went out to buy it the very next day. Definitely a good buy.
I like the game i wish that the football was a little bit better. You can only play offense but still liked the play. Darts and skiing is very realistic. If you liked the first season you will like this one it just adds to the games you can play. Would recommend to any sports fan.
Builds Nicely on Movement Games12/30/2011
There are other reviews of the games that are very in depth and well done, so I'm not going to go into each game individually. I think mainly its a matter of preference. For example, one reviewer was disappointed with American Football because the gameplay only consisted of passing plays, 4 downs, field goal potential, and running. Those options leave lots out as he noted, but I thought it was great that it had as much as it did. And for passing plays (which are pretty darn fun, by the way), the Kinect worked really well. Frankly I was surprised how well the game mechanics worked without having to hold a controller or some other item, but even so, in some cases I held something to get the feel of the real sport and it didn't make a difference in the game. Big improvements include the voice activation, the menus and the instructional videos. I think it would be nice if the game kept detailed stats for the players, but the first Kinect Sports didn't have that either, so maybe one day. It does lack mini games compared to the first Sports, but I think it's worth some DLC $ for that option. Overall I think the game is an important achievement in motion controller free gaming.
