Builds Nicely on Movement Games
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.
