Xbox 360 Kinect: Potential of games, claims made before release

By Gary Johnson - Sep 24, 2010

Microsoft will be releasing the Kinect in the coming months, but when the hardware is released how good will the games be that are available at launch?

Jay Malone of Playeraffinity is not very excited about the upcoming release, even though he admits to being an “Xbox Guy”. When he first heard about the device when it was called “Project Natal” instead of being blown away, he was just intrigued. He thinks the device does offer potential, but thinks this fades with every new title that is announced, and asks if the device has failed already?

Buried beneath some weak sounding launch titles such as Kinect Adventures and Joy Ride, is Dance Central. This game should be ideal for the Kinect as no controller is needed, and has an impressive soundtrack.

A title which gets some criticism is Fighters Uncaged, watching someone playing it flailing their arms about is said to look “atrocious”. Would you want to play like that for over twenty minutes?

What do you think? Do you agree with what was said about the Kinect, and will you be getting one?
