Sonic Free Riders is a cautionary tale about the importance of controls in gaming. Make a game interesting, give it solid graphics and some unique hooks, but don't lock down the controls and you're going to have a disaster on your hands.
Sonic Game + Kinect=? mmm....
Sonic games haven't worked right with regular controllers, so this is no surprise! Oh the fanboys! As long as it says what they want, they don't even use logic! They said some of the games work great with Kinect and some don't! That was true even before Kinect came out with all games in the past... this ain't no new sh*t!
Man stuff it dude. Don't try to put the blame on sonic games being "bad" all together on this game just working like crap on Kinect. Oh the fanboys!
lmfao at kinect "gameplay"
Not so different : not really accurate, and other problems (black skin, environment, etc) are in every single reviews. the only one who praise the camera are "kinectimal" boy and others ms employees. "Now Sony fans believe Kotaku to be 100% accurate - I'll have to remember this thread for future reference" it's the same thing when they give high score to a ps3 goty : everybody knows they are biased, they can write some evidences, it doesn't change anything to the fact they are biased.
high score O_o
That was part of their contract with MS.
Here sir, a hard earned bubble just for you
So now all Sony fans believe that? I don't see why that is. o_O
If you read the review, the reviewer admitted there may have been a calibration error.
48 agrees for trolling, seriously?
Yeah, who do I distrust more Kotaku or IGN hmmmm =/
seriously hard question.
IGN must have got a bigger check in the post
When your body is the controller what do you expect.
I wish my body had buttons :)
And where is the Shift?
screw the handbrake and shift, where the hell are the pedals!?
Belly Button doesn't count? lol
Big controllers in America
but that does'nt mean much without the games to back it up.
the screen got condensated, it was pretty cool to have to wipe it clean. it reminded me of the window washing thing from ps2.
That was the worst video evidence against Kinect-to-Game software control yet! It was awful, and damn near unplayable.
I thought we were never to trust Kotaku with video evidence? Or have we all forgotten about that now we are talking about Kinect?
Something is DEFINITELY up. The opinions are split half and half between good and bad. I have a bad feeling about this.
They also gave time crisis a low score but I bet u anything the controls and accuracy for time crisis is alot more precise then this game. Oh yeah they docked 5 points for not having a good story even though its an arcade shooter lol.
time crisis is great :) gives a perfect arcade at home experience.
This has nothing to do with Kinect, poorly coded software = bad game, regardless of input source. You know it.
yea its the game but so it is with most motion control games, so far every single kinect game has some problem or the other with recognising proper body motion, even dance central they said sometimes doesn't register the correct more even if you did it right. Until we see perfectly coded games that work with the hardware well why shouldn't people blast kinect, its only as good as its games and its coming up short at the moment.
kinect game, so tell me again how does this have nothing to do with kinect? face it, the world u were promised with kinect isnt all rosey and perfect, more like its an apocolyptic world.
poorly coded software = bad game Not according to IGN..lol
Sonic is a cautionary tale about the importance of not screwing up a video game icon over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. Sonic Free Riders is not bad because it's a Kinect game, it's bad because it's a 3D Sonic game. Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 are the only good 3D Sonic games I've ever played.
exactly ..the sonic games weren't good before kinect ...kinect won't make the sonic riders franchise good .
Every people i know who tested the game say it's probably one of the best kinect game. It's working, the lag is almost unnoticeable, the races are fun... so i don't understand anymore.. Who's lying? For sure that's not my friends, they don't even have a 360. I'm not trusting kotaku on this one.
Three words about the video, 'painful to watch'.
