NowGamer - PowerUp Heroes Review

NowGamer - We feared Kinect would get used as a quick and easy way to shovel out awful kids’ games dressed up as full-priced releases. We’re sorry to say that we’re disappointed to be proven right – though we didn’t expect Ubisoft to be the ones dishing out the tat.

While you could argue that, at the very least, PowerUp Heroes is presenting a genre on Kinect that we’ve never seen before (if you really stretch the definition of the word), when it’s presented a package this fundamentally flawed and lacking in content, you have to wonder why Ubi didn’t just go down the online route. Because that’s exactly what this feels like, an XBLA game to spend five minutes throwing your arms at before moving onto an actual game. (PowerUp Heroes, Xbox 360) 4.5/10

Sound Bad..who even knew this game was even in existance. Never even heard of it..Ubisoft or not.

Still love what Ubisoft has pulled off otherwise with Child of Eden and Fitness Evolved. But, this game doesnt even sound like it was on anyone's radar and that's a good thing in this case. But, I'm only going on this review so far. Who know if the big boys will even bother.

I was looking forward to it. Still am... Kinda. Need the demo.

I do agree that these small Kinect games should be released on XBLA at a much lower $20-$25.
