Some Good Kinect Games?

#1 Posted by skyline7284 (503 posts) -

So i just got a Kinect for Christmas and it came with Gunstringer, Kinect Adventures, and Fruit Ninja. Are there any other Kinect games worth buying? (Kinect Sports, Dance Central?).

I've heard good things about Child of Edan... Don't have a Kinect myself, though

Child of Eden is good.

The kinect sports ones (by Rare) are good. Dance central is good (with the right people). Avoid EA Sports Active fitness though.

Child of Eden is good, Gunstringer is good (if you can get used to the fact that you arent moving your cursor like you would a gun), Dance Central 1 and 2, Your Shape Fitness 2012 (good game if you are into that genre), Fruit Ninja, and....I think that's it honestly. If you can get them for maybe $15 or less the Kinect Adventures games are OK.

Kinect Adventures is included with the Kinect across the board.

@RageExpressive: Well, he could have gotten a used one. I bought a Kinect from a used media store in town that looked perfect for under $100 back in the summer. I then was able to buy Kinect Adventures for like $3.00 or $5.00 from Gamestop used. I'm also not sure if Kinect Adventures 2 is packed in with the newer Kinects or not.

Child of Eden and the Gunstringer are easy picks.

Gunstringer, Fruit Ninja, Child of Eden are pretty much the only games that are worth it. Also maybe Rise of Nightmares

The only winning move is not to play.

Besides all of the above suggestions (which I agree with and approve), I'd add "Just Dance 3".  Less of a "game" than the Dance Centrals, but probably the best/most fun pick up and play party experience for Kinect.  Anyone can do it, and up to 4 dancers at a time.  Not as punishing as DC if you miss moves.  Although this is pretty subjective, I also think it has a better song list than the DC games.

I mostly use Yourshape, it's not really a game but it is quite good at what it does (fitness).
