  • From my early experiences of a couple of its release titles, my excitement quickly dwindled leaving me with average playing experiences but still fun, especially party-style gaming when you have friends round. However, once the bigger AAA titles starti...

  • Abstract:  Providing you've got a decent sized room, and you can position it properly, Kinect works a treat, with no real lag to speak of and a commendable level of accuracy on the motion detection front. The key launch titles we looked at, while casual gamer or...

  • The Kinect is great for casual gamers and families. The system works well and is a real technological achievement. Just make sure you've got plenty of room at home! The system's probably not suitable for use with all kinds of games, and more serious ga...

  • Abstract:  While Nintendo revolutionised and reinvigorated the gaming scene with Wii by attracting a new audience of families, women and casual gamers enticed by the interaction and physicality of Wii’s motion controls, Microsoft looks to take things a step furth...

  • An impressive piece of hardware, but Kinect's launch titles break little ground that hasn't been well-trodden by its competitors. ...

  • Kinect might not be the Minority Report technology we've long dreamt of, but it is the first palpable, mass-market step towards realising that science fiction. And, as a first step, it's a surprisingly assured and considered technological leap, and one th...

  • Kinect has issues with space and size, and its games won't appeal to the hardcore market. Yet it effortlessly transforms the Xbox 360 into a family games console, and one with more 'wow' factor than anything since the Wii. With several strong launch title...

  • The Nintendo Wii made waves when it came out in 2006.It wasn't because of an exciting array of incredible launch titles - there weren't any. And it absolutely wasn't due to the Wii packing dazzling HD graphics - it doesn't.It was all down to the motion...

  • Fantastic fun; simple, accessible gameplay; easy set-up; impressive motion-tracking technology
  • Demands plenty of space; tracking is often glitchy; two player maximum at launch; expensive
  • You'll need plenty of space to use Microsoft's Kinect motion-gaming system, but it's just about the most fun you can have with your hands free. It's not accurate enough to win over hard-core gamers, but it's simple and hugely entertaining....
