Fighter Within Gameplay and Hands-on | The Average Gamer

As a party game, The Kinect-exclusive Fighter Within for Xbox One works quite well. There's a solo mode as well, but not enough depth for that to be really fun. (Fighter Within, Xbox One)

That was a pretty neat demonstration of the Kinect grab, drag and push to select controls. I like this over swiping and holding your hand in place.

The girl can't seem to figure out how to fight though. should be simple as they show you cheats on the screen.

This is not going to get a high rating with core gamers. The game is too gesture based and casual focused, but I would like to give it a test run to see if I can have fun with it.

It's hard to get past the thought of Fighters Uncaged, though. That was SO bad.

I have seen enough videos of this game to know it will do what I am looking for. A game like this is milestone in a completely new genre, as crappy as gaming journalism has been for the last 6 years I would expect this game to score low. None of the reviewers will attempt to really play it. They'll put up some half @ssed video of them flailing around and missing fight queues and sucking and then blame everything on the game.

If it falters in the market I say MS should make one of the first free games with gold for Xbox One and even sponsor an online tournament... just give it a little push.

Once games like this catch on the industry will completely change. Once we have a market that are interested in new ideas and innovation in gaming the ONE will probably dominate.

I do agree with you, in that this game will most likely work as it was designed to. I know I will get lots of fun out of playing around with it. But I do think they should have also included a free style mode, where people who want to, can just whale away at each other. That is what a lot of people want and expect from a full body motion game.

Having said that, I think given a chance, this game seems to have the tolls to be a tactical fighter.
