quick and simple fun

variety of sports


Xbox Live support for two players


control incorporation of some sports

lacks a single player career

Kinect Sports offers a diverse range of sports fully in line with competitors, with the only difference that here you actually get involved in sports using your whole body. Kinect and its two cameras are watching you closely.

This means that shaking the controller when running will not be sufficient and because there is no controller with Kinect, you really have to lift your legs, jump, kick or hit with your hands. The variety of sports includes, but is not limited to, soccer, volleyball, boxing, bowling, ping pong as well as athletics such as running, hurdles, jumping into the sand hour drive, and javelin. The game has 3 slightly different modes for each discipline: Party Play mode for two teams designed to fit your party; Main Event offers all disciplines for a single or multiplayer; and Quickplay mode to get you fast into action.

The game is pure fun and it is the best with more players, whether on TV or through the Live. Single player is only offered a good training and good feeling when beating an AI at four different levels of experience.

The most robust of all the games is soccer, which offers not only shots on goal, but the whole match for one or two players. It is not a standard FIFA, but it shows how EA could incorporate Kinect in this popular series. During the match, the game will automatically switch between players who are the closest to the ball and gives you an option of passing the ball, or if the opponent has the ball you can prevent his pass by moving yourself in front of the shot. You have an option to shoot at the goal when you are close to the net or to have a moment to catch the ball when switched to a goalkeeper. The actual running is excluded, allowing you to focus only on the ball.
