gamrReview - What Kinect Offers the Core

Motion controls have been a divisive subject for gamers ever since the launch of the Wii. Since then, Kinect has only fuelled that fire. And while the Wii has since proven its worth to fans, Microsoft has been struggling to create convincing arguments for core gamers to like Kinect. This article is aimed at showing that Kinect can not only be a good home for core games, but it can enhance aspects of them too.

I think it has potential, it's just that no effort has really been made to realise that potential. I'd love a Viva Pinata Kinect game, for example. Rare should've made that instead of KS2 :(

i agree there really hasent been any effort put in, Rare has put some effort in with the kinect sports titles its just that the titles themselves are ones that most consumers dont want.

There are great games on kinect but the bad games outshines the good games.

Kinect + a MS version of Move would be great. Kinect by itself... not so much. It'd be better as a control augmentation, than a standalone controller.

Alternatively, Move + Sony version of Kinect would also be great. I'll bet both options will be possible, next gen.

This, I know people would rather fan the flames but..

Kinect is a better camera than the pseye

and

MOVE provides better accuracy than Kinect.

With kinect you cant game against controller and keyboard players like you could with move.

With move you can't get great head tracking like you do with kinect.

People say competition is a good thing, not always, ms kinect on playstation with move would be awesome.

Im hopeing that ryse does good and fable the journey. Theres still room for indie developers to do something really amazing i mean most of the stuff like free movement and shooting have all been done by independent developers. Opening the marketplace or kinec fun labs to indie developers would just make the device flourish i hope microsft announces something like this at E3.

This was actually a pretty good right up. It seems that a thin layer of the hate that kinect has gotten is starting to wear off. There is still lots more but its a start.

I have always said Kinect is a totally different experience and should be treated as such. MS never sold it like it is suppose to replace current control schemes but the mass off gamers have seem to take it that way. Games made for Kinect or any motion device should be recognized and designed for their own strengths. Playing a game like COD or Ninja Gaiden or tons of other currently styled games with Kinect would be terrible, and not just because the feel of the input(because that can be adjusted) but the pace and action would have any regular person to tired to play.

Kinect has done a good job so far with its software offerings. if you really want to see how good kinect is there is enough stuff out there to show it as a viable control system. I cant wait for Kinect Star Wars I think thats going to be the first big budget kinect game.
