This game was reasonably fun to begin with. I unfortunately am not blessed with having ample space, and thus I am quite limited in my experiences with the kinect. Only just managing to get within the necessary movement area, by moving every piece of furniture in the room, I had issues with the sensors reacting in an unpredictable way. I also had many issues with the sensors not being able to accurately pick up my movements, which led to me losing valuable points and causing frustration.

But if we just look at the game itself, it is fun, with a wide variety of games, that encourage physical exercise and a variety of actions. While I was not impressed with the games constant need to take photos of me in awkward poses, that was easily fixed with a quick click around in the settings.

If you have a place where lots of space is available, it will keep the children entertained for hours collecting trophies, plugging up cracks in aquariums, hitting targets with basketballs, steering rafts, and so on. It is unfortunately a little bit limited by the number of games that are included.

The real kicker, is that it tricks the little ones into being active without them noticing, or for those that struggle with fitness, it makes a great distraction from the task at hand.

Just to get it out of the way, the only thing I don't like about this game is how fussy it is to get the photos it takes during game-play onto your computer, and then onto facebook. Took me half an hour just to do 2 photos, so I have never bothered since, although I'm sure with practice, it would become a lot easier and quicker.

It's a game that looks pretty easy, and is very easy to figure out, it also gives you one heck of a work out. In fact, my mum has turned this game into a fitness session once a week.

I will point out that I have said 1 to sleepless nights, only because if you play it for long enough, you are tired enough and fall asleep nice and quickly. Better (and cheaper) than going to a gym.

Despite it's very, and I do mean VERY, basic nature, this game is a perfect starter for learning how to use the Kinect Sensor. The game comes with a wide range of activities, from riding a raft down some almost physically-impossible rivers, to a prolonged and rather involved obstacle course that looks so very much like "Wipeout" on steroids.

Some of the fun aspects include the staggered reward system, where you earn either bronze, silver or gold medals depending on your performance, and in order to progress to new adventures, a certain level of achievement must be attained. Achieving a high standard offers some fun 'cute' rewards, such as 'living statues' that will either mimic your words, dance a little dance you record, etc.

Being one of the first generation of Kinect-based games, this one was bound to be a little simplistic, and very easy to play and understand... keeping this in mind, as well as it's intended audience - children - adults should expect to find this a little unchallenging to play, but it's still fun and a great way to bond with the kids. (They seem to find it hilarious watching Mum and/or Dad leaping around and spasming like they have ants crawling up their back. Wink Icon)

Overall, a great, if somewhat embarrassing for the adults, way to blow away an afternoon or three... my only dislike is the game's demands to take snapshots of you at key points throughout the game, then show them to you after each stage. A feature I would GREATLY love to have the option to turn off! LOL Icon
