What is the best Kinect games.

#1 Posted by Ugalde (171 posts) -

I was planning on getting a Kinect for my little brother. Hes 7 and I think he will like it. We watched the quick look of Kinectables and he thought it looked cool. Just wondering what are the best Kinect games so far and which ones I should be looking forward too by christmass.

For your brother?  I know that, objectively, I'd say Dance Central and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved seem to be the best (or at least most developed) Kinect games, but I'm not sure what I'd recommend for your brother.  Perhaps he'd enjoy Kinectimals, Kinect Adventures and maybe Kinect Sports?

Out of the launch games i read reviews about Dance Central, Kinect Sports and Kinectimals are the best reviewed. There will be some more Kinect games out before christmas so those might be good also.

Hopefully there are some more games out before x-mass because my brother has played Halo, Gears and other games like that. The only Kinect game he seemed excited for was Kinectamals so hopefully some more games come out that look promising.

Straight up: Don't buy your brother a Kinect if you can barely think of one game.  Never buy hardware when there is nothing out for it that interest you, that is just setting yourself up for failure.

@udabenshen: Why does it matter if it doesn't interest him if his brother is interested? 
Just the Kinect with adventures should be adequate. Dance Central is fun and depending on how well it works Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows might be worthwhile.

If he liked the look of Kinectimals then go for that. Your Shape: Fitness Evolved looks very good for what it is but I don't know if your brother is going to be into fitness games. Personally I think the best-looking thing on the Kinect right now is Dance Central.

Dance Central, Kinectimals, and Kinect Sports. Your Shape is also great but that isnt something a 7 year old would be into.
