IGN UK: Microsoft's Kinect is here and right out the gate there are a bunch of games to choose from, many of which are the more family-friendly fare.
Anywho... I wonder what IGN gave this game when it was on the PS2 eyetoy?!?! Hmmmm.. http://www.youtube.com/watc... @cold... oh my. Your a smart one;)
Why would they give it the same score when its not the same game ? Troll fail. edit: go play some Move exclusives, I heard they be bangin' http://n4g.com/news/637319/...
Why dont you go play fable 3? I heard it has a lower meta than modnation racers, oh and while your at it.. actually go and buy Alan Wake.
Yeah cause I remember being able to play that game online...
Not bad at all.
To be honest, I thought the review would be much worse. Not bad for a Kinect launch title I guess.
ATLEAST ITS A DECENT GAME
IGN Uk lol. lets wait for a few reviews first and then check the averages below: while i didn't expect lights out to get high scores, i knew it would get low scores from an American IGN
its actually IGN US but on the UK version of the site. You usually see the UK in parenthesis next to the reviewer's name I believe.
Most of the games will average the same or a bit higher then PS move games. I expect a couple of kinect games to have a 90% average. It's hard to tell what will happen though everybody and their mama in the pro Sony world with a pro Sony agenda will be trying to throw the reviews.
" I expect a couple of kinect games to have a 90% average" wanna bet on that? what is the meaning of "a couple"? more than 3? 4? 5? I bet that kinect wont get 5 launch titles with 90%+, If I lose, I leave N4g; if you lose, you leave N4g? :) EDIT: My definition of launch title = same day/week of kinect release. I'm pointing it out cause there is a difference between launch title and a title released at launch "window" (where it's a few months between the hardware release) On topic: Good score, I love sonic, and I'll pick this up whenever kinect sells for $70 or so.
I see alot of you guys above me getting disagrees. I guess they come from people who are still mad that the PS3 fighting game on Move scored a 3.5/10. oh welp. Can't please everybody.
especially IGN,.. They are as credible and well balanced team as shit,.. Sometimes hard to listen to gamescoop all the Ms ass-licking goes there with their main editors,.. It's painful for me to say that PS3 team is most unbiased,.. though they are stupid as shit in their reviews sometimes,.
Oh, but they were credible when they gave MGS4 a 10/10 right? You PS3 guys are just butt-hurt and in denial.
If it's quality it deserves a good point...
Everyone seems to have a reason for a website having no credibility nowadays, if you don't like them then why are you here commenting?
More likely they're disagrees from people who aren't middle aged women who watch chat shows - that's Kinect's audience after all. Don't break a nail replying! r.
This score is the same as the metacritic for MOH. So is this game as good as MOH? Come on people IGN reviews are useless at this point they are so inconsistent they might as well be a paid blog site.
Not only is MOH a completely different game and genre..... MOH was a dissapointment, so saying that Sonic is as good as another game that is dissapointing isn't so hard to beleive. NOt only have you not played the Sonic Kinect game, you are also trying to say that any Kinect game like this is in no way as good as MOH Doesn't make sense broskie. Edit: You can also look at the ign review of Sports Champion....its got a 7.5 too. So by your logic, that is in no way possible because there is no way a game like that could be better than MOH. Everyone will hate on IGN when they think that they are giving too good of reviews for 360 games, but nothing is said when they give great reviews(deserved or undeserved) to PS3 games. How about a reply from those 4+ people disagreeing?
WOW! Good job making yourself look like an idiot nycredude. MOH and SONIC are both shooters people! OMFG!!!
Totally off-topic. Way to be a fanboy.
btw.. what exactly is on-topic about your post fanboy?
The only thing thats concerning about things like this sonic review is how is it any different from kung fu rider? lean left and right to steer collect bonuses perform tricks. sonic has an online element kung fu rider is £20 odd quid. technically they work differently, but the outcome is pretty similar. not bashing either one just saying play em both and giving them wildly different scores takes away from your credibility. I have no doubt about sonic being a decent launch title for kinect its just IGNs credibility is really heading for total worthlessness.
Key phrase from your reply : ''technically they work differently, but the outcome is pretty similar.'' Maybe techincally one actually works and the other doesnt or maybe techincally one of them is actually more fun then the other? I think we should stop doing comparison between games.
Are you surprised? Every Kinect game will have great great reviews.
This isnt a great review... its average
Still better than The Fight.
So your speculating on the score of a game you haven't played? All your comment proves is that you are incapable of taking off your fanboy glasses. Who the f*ck cares. Sonic is shovelware just like Kung Fu Rider is shovelware, neither game is going to break sales records or make anyone pick up a Move or Kinect. It's pathetic that you are crying foul on a review for a game like this. A new low in fanboy history. Stop whining about bias because your angry that MS' crappy launch title scored higher than Sony's crappy launch title.
Lol after all the hate and anti kinect propaganda spead around here,i find it funny that the first game reviewed has scored higher than most if not all of the first wave of Move games.. Quick troll alert
RE5? Heavy Rain? What I find funny is how many "hardcore" gamers visiting this site now want to play the dance one and now a kiddies Sonic one. What happened - just have a menopause? r.
So according to you...hardcore gamers MUST only play hardcore games??? facepalm/ The ignorance on this site never ceases to amaze me. We have people who aren't interested in Kinect that continuously enter Kinect articles and people who bash IGN who continuously enter IGN review articles. Sad...but true. I've come to the conclusion that most of the people here are under 12 years old because theres NO WAY grown adults can act this way.
@dead So true about that first part. I consider myself as a hardcore gamer but i still pick up a few games that wouldn't be considered hardcore. People need to understand this is an average score, its neither garbage nor is it the holy grail just in between. What i have an issue with is how it's okay when a 360 game gets a score like this but when a PS3 game has a score like this it becomes complete garbage according to some people, but they are trolls anyway. Like i said it's an average score so it's something that you can play but at the same time it could be something that you would wait before playing it unless it's the only option, that is at least what i do for games that get 7 or below.
i didnt know resident evil 5 was a move exclusive i thought i had it for my 360 hmmmm. At least kinect has real exclusives built for it not 3 year old games repackaged. I wont know if il get it until i see how all those tgs games come out but thats what i like about it, new creative exclusives. Move gets wii remakes and 3 year old ps3 games, kinect gets new exclusives from the best developers around.
How about your little sack boy? Do that little doll look mature to you? Hippocrisy is a B'ach.
Sports Champions has got plenty of good reviews. It's actually really fun.
Not a bad review. Shame Move has no titles like this. What on earth Sony.
you forgot the sarcasm at the end
How come? Move has no good games. Tumble = flop. The Fight = flop.
Did I? I'm serious? Move needs some Move only titles, from big franchises like Sonic or just good Move only games in general. On this site people call me a Sony fanboy, but if theres one thing I refuse to support, it's the farse that is Playstation Move. Heavy Rain and RE5 don't cut it for me when I can easily buy them and play with DS3
tumble had mixed reviews... but it's great value for the price
I see MS's "advertising money" hard at work here
So... what happen to the kinect review?
Whatever happened to those reviews? If 20 more reviews coming out dropping low scores on this a lot of people will look so stupid.
Kinect is off to a good start. Game looks ok.
not bad for a kinect game
This and JoyRide could be a hit for Kinect just like Mario Kart is for Wii. I don't expect either of them to sell that much, but casuals might love this. I am getting Kinect adventures and Kinect Sports first and see what happens next. I just bought Fable III and Halo Reach. I am getting RDR for xmas along with the PC titles Patrician IV and Starcraft 2. I will be busy the next months. February is set with Bulletstorm and Crysis 2 as well.
