MEGamers: "The first game we saw was Kinect Adventures, a game touted as one that will “get you off the couch and into the game”. The game consists of various mini-games that you can play alone or with friends, ranging from a mad raft race, to a souped-up version of handball-meets-squash, to an obstacle course complete with moving platforms and lifts. Here’s a quick video of the raft race, where the objective is to steer your raft down a river whilst collecting points.
As the video demonstrates, it’s extremely easy to play this game – you simply lean or move your body in the direction you want to go, and the game takes care of the rest. While it may look deceptively easy, the game was in fact quite hard to pull off when I tried it out, and I had to actually shout ‘jump’ to my partner so we didn’t end up crashing. The other games were also quite entertaining, and many of them get you moving all over the place, rather than just standing still and flailing your arms."
