Digital Spy writes: "Kinect Adventures is very much the Wii Sports of Microsoft's launch lineup. It's not teeming with depth and you would begrudge paying top dollar for it, but it shows off the new hardware's capabilities with enough aplomb to justify its choice as the game that's bundled with the goods. On the downside, when played individually in a small room, the hardware can be quite unreliable and some of the games can be fairly dull. With enough people and enough space, however, games are tremendous fun and working together or against each other - all the while posing for the camera - results in some hilarious hands-free gaming sessions. Kinect Adventures is a good start for Microsoft, and will leave the player wondering what else can be achieved with this latest piece of equipment."
