whats everyones favorite kinect game?
i have 3 now and i want another
-Kinect Adventures
-Kinect Sports
-Dance Central

04-04-2011, 09:19 PM
To date, I only have Kinect Adventures, but I love it. Soon I'll be getting Your Shape in the mail and will be able to comment on that.


I got Your Shape and I have to say that I'm very underwhelmed. The tracking has some serious issues (for me and my gf at least). It has no idea how tall we are and it is constantly telling us we are out of rhythm because it loses our legs/feet. Take this info with a grain of salt, however, because we also just moved the sensor to be above the TV and at ~6 feet where prior to this it was a bit to the left and at about 2.5-3 feet.

The only Kinect game I have kinda played is Kinect Sports. So that one for me.

04-07-2011, 05:22 PM
Carnival Games as actually pretty good, if you're into that sort of game. Especially if you have kids.

04-07-2011, 08:16 PM
fighters uncaged is okay but its not multiplayer which kind of ruins it.

04-07-2011, 09:08 PM
I've really enjoyed two so far Dance Central and Kinectimals :)

04-07-2011, 11:09 PM
Your shape is a nice game. the only one i got full 1045 in:) working on dance central and adventure... i have biggest looser to but it isnīt a good game. need to get sports

04-09-2011, 05:55 PM
Between my wife, my 5 year old daughter and I we have 3 Kinect games so far. We have Kinectimals (my daughter's), Dance Central (my wife's) and Adventures. I would have to say that my daughter really enjoys Kinectimals and my wife really enjoys dance central, but I think that out of the 3 Kinect Adventures is pretty fun - even if it is just more of a novelty game.

04-10-2011, 02:50 AM
The dance one does look fun, but I think Id get bored of it super quickly, like GH.

04-10-2011, 03:27 AM
I don't own a Kinect yet but i have played Adventure and Sports and like both. If you like workout Kinect game, UFC is going out with a game in may or june and i am sure that will give u 1 hell of a workout

04-10-2011, 04:42 AM
fighters uncaged is okay but its not multiplayer which kind of ruins it.
lol that game has more issues than a lack of multiplayer...like sucking in general;)

dance central ftw

04-10-2011, 10:17 AM
Sports and Adventures have to be mine. Although I have brought Carnival last night, so hopfuly that will be quite good! ;)

04-11-2011, 12:40 AM
I really liked Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventures is really fun too.

04-11-2011, 03:08 AM
I own three and have played 7 kinect games.

Dance Central is the best by far for me

04-14-2011, 02:53 AM
kinect sports

04-14-2011, 03:40 AM
Only played adventures, kinectimals and zumba fitness. All of them are good Adventures is amazing 10/5; Kinectimals 5/5 and zumba 4/5. I plan on getting another soon as well just cant decide yet :/

04-14-2011, 08:57 PM
Dance Central without a qn, Sports close second, Adventures is a fun demo for the tech but if it didn't come with device i wouldnt have gotten it.

04-17-2011, 12:40 PM
My family and I have really enjoyed the kinect. Our favorites are Adventures, kinect sports, and the carnival game.
I think this is the main reason for Kinect, for families, and its good. Brings the family together in a sense.

11-28-2011, 02:46 PM
The best Kinect game EVER made! If only I could afford the setup costs :uzi:

12-01-2011, 07:00 PM
Child of Eden and Disneyland Adventures for me so far.

12-01-2011, 09:59 PM
for me...

1. Kinect Sports Season I
2. Kinectimals with or without Bears ;)
3. Disneyland Adventures
4. Seasame Street: Once Upon a Monster

12-01-2011, 10:15 PM
Wipeout....it is fun and tiring and as funny to watch as it is to play....i have not played the follow-up to this title.

12-03-2011, 10:16 AM
The best games for me:
- Kinect Sports
- Fruit Ninja Kinect
- Kinect Adventures

12-05-2011, 04:48 AM
Kinect sports season 2 and kinect adventures

12-06-2011, 11:32 PM
For me its definitely Kinect sports seasons 1 and 2

12-07-2011, 03:51 PM
i Have a few kinect games but i like the game "the gunstringer" out of all of them its fun, looks good, and it has a little work to it.

12-07-2011, 04:00 PM
I have Kinect Adventures, Fruit Ninja, The Gunstringer, and Kinectimals.

I freaking love Kinectimals. So adorable I can't even handle it.

I want to try out Rise of Nightmares though. Anyone like that game?

12-08-2011, 08:36 PM
fruit ninja by far my favorite kinect game. Solo is fun but party mode is where it gets serious especially when you have 4 people, check it out.

12-08-2011, 08:41 PM
Gun stringer demo seemed ok

12-14-2011, 05:08 PM
I didn't care for the shoot aspect of Gunstringer. I hope to one day see a awesome shooter on the Kinect. Fingers crossed

Let's hope the new GRAW doesn't fuck up, eh? :p

01-10-2012, 01:02 AM
Dance Central 2
And Fruit Ninja
that is my opinion

01-10-2012, 04:21 AM
I liked Fruit Ninja a lot, me and my kids have a ball playing it.

I have to say that Kung Fu Panda 2 is pretty fun as well. My son got it for Christmas and I had to give it a try.

01-10-2012, 02:19 PM
the only games we got for kinect is, adventures, sports season 2, and dance central 2. The only one I've really played is the sports so that gets that my vote

xTNTx Half D3ad
01-10-2012, 10:46 PM
I like your shape :)
good training game will be getting 2012 edition soon

01-14-2012, 12:35 PM
Winter stars
Dance central

01-14-2012, 01:26 PM
Kinect Sports Season 2
Kinect Sports
& Kinect Adventures

01-17-2012, 01:17 AM
ufc personal trainer

01-17-2012, 05:20 AM
My vote would be for kinect adventures and the UFC trainer though I haven't tried too many games yet. The party game one is also very fun with groups of people. I felt that deca sports was very very glitchy on reading movements and didn't work very well.

01-17-2012, 07:29 AM
I have Kinect Adventures, Just Dance 3, UFC Trainer, and Sesame Streets Once Upon A Mosnter. My daughter absolutely loves that game!

UFC Trainer is actually pretty cool
I love Kinect Adventures, but I think that is just because that's the first game I got to pay on my Kinect.
But I really like Just Dance 3. It's fun because I played the first Just Dance on the Wii, and playing it on Kinect is so much easier. It makes it more fun. Plus some of the achievements are absolutely hilarious because it is like they knew intoxicated people would be playing at 2 in the morning on a Saturday lol

01-17-2012, 01:23 PM
So far it's Child of Eden for me. I like Dance Central too, still needs to play it more though. I might end up liking Your Shape, when I can get myself in gear to actually play it :).

01-21-2012, 12:56 AM
I'd say Fruit Ninja.

01-21-2012, 12:58 AM
Although, I cannot play 2 player with my 5 year old unless I'm on my knees.

01-26-2012, 09:19 AM
Dance Central 2 ^_^

03-07-2012, 01:55 AM
just throwing the obv idea out there kinect sports season 2 ?

i hear forza 4 is fun with kinect although playing with a air steering wheel not the most best use of kinect admittedly

03-07-2012, 02:40 AM
I love playing kinect adventures, and power up heroes is a lot of fun. Good with friends to just mess around.

03-07-2012, 02:48 PM
Kinect sports for me :)

But i still think alot more good titles need to be made for the kinect because it doesn't justify buying one atm....

03-07-2012, 03:31 PM
Dance Central 2 for sure--it's mad fun.
I also really like Adventures;
which I didn't think I would.
Very fun.
I'm going to try Sports & Once Upon A Monster one of these days. 8D
I love Active 2 & UFC Trainer--fun ways to stay fit without getting bored.

03-11-2012, 09:46 PM
Got Kinect Adventures & Rise of Nightmares which are ok, I'm hoping the kinect support in Mass Effect 3 is a step forward for the device. Anyone played it yet?

03-13-2012, 01:26 AM
We have Adventures (fun), Gunstringer (fun but not super easy for kids), Dance Central 1 (fun and a workout), Fruit Ninja (crazy fun and great party game), Sports 1 and 2 (must haves), and Zumba Rush Fitness (fun and a workout). Had UFC Trainer and hated it after a week- super repetitive and awful dialogue, wonky detection on some moves, and low production/presentation IMHO. Only game I ever traded in at GameStop.

03-15-2012, 03:18 AM
Kinect Sports Season 2 is my personal favorite

03-15-2012, 02:42 PM
For me kinect sports 2 are best game for now, but I can't wait till Star wars.

03-16-2012, 02:07 AM
Fruit Ninja. It is a blast.

03-16-2012, 09:55 AM
The Gunstringer, Fruit Ninja and Kinect Sports 1 & 2 are by far my most enjoyed games.

03-26-2012, 12:19 AM
Dance Central 2 is great for a get together.

Me and my fiance's family played it at our house over Christmas, and it was a big hit.

03-26-2012, 12:33 AM
Rising Nightmare looks cool, but I have yet to play it. My friend said it wasn't easy especially if you have no weapon. lol. I'm excited that I will get one soon along with Kinect Sports, Fruit Ninja, and The Gunslinger.

03-27-2012, 01:24 AM
My favorite games for Kinect are the Dance Central Games plus Fitness Evolved.

03-27-2012, 12:59 PM
Mine has to be The Gunstringer closly followed by Kinect Sports (Still need to play Kinect Sports 2)

05-03-2012, 09:51 AM
I preferred sports 1 over sports 2, both good fun though.
The kids are loving the Disney adventures, not tried it myself though.
I really liked gunstringer, the gameplay was solid and the presentation was superb.

My favourite use for Kinect though so far has to be tiger woods... I use a controller to set the shots up cos Kinect was a pain in the arse trying to do that, but then using the Kinect to swing works better than using the pad. Combining the two works really well.

Dance central has to get a shout out too, I can't dance for shit but that game is so much fun after a few beers :)

05-04-2012, 06:57 AM
I like Kinect Sports, I find interactive games such as the ones available on kinect more fun when others are involved, not quite as keen on it as a single player experience.

05-04-2012, 06:58 PM
I Like the Gunstringer and the Fruit Ninja

05-08-2012, 01:49 PM
The best one for me is Grease :)

Skorpion XBA
05-08-2012, 02:26 PM
Even though the story was crappy and predictable, Rise of Nightmares was the best game I've played for kinect. The sensor wasn't glitchy and picked up all the moves that I was making.

05-09-2012, 08:07 PM
Star Wars Kinect is pretty good.

05-10-2012, 02:18 AM
Dance Games. <3 Haha. Truly fun. I remember the days of DDR.

Haven't heard anything but good things about it.

05-11-2012, 10:06 AM
Dance Central 2 for me. I would really like to try kinect star wars but have way too many kinect games in my backlog to get more games now.

05-12-2012, 10:24 AM
Dance Central and Your Shape are the only ones I even remotely care about :(

05-12-2012, 02:50 PM
I kinda liked kinetics adventures, at least it was better than motion sports. The biggest surprise has been kung fu panda 2 even though it was way too easy but mechanically it worked well, i always get so frustrated when the kinetic does not do what i do.

05-13-2012, 02:15 AM
Kinect Sports and The Gunstringer.

05-14-2012, 02:06 AM
My favourite use for Kinect though so far has to be tiger woods... I use a controller to set the shots up cos Kinect was a pain in the arse trying to do that, but then using the Kinect to swing works better than using the pad. Combining the two works really well.

I found myself doing the exact same thing for Tiger Woods. It works well when you combine the controller for aiming and the kinect for the swing. Returned it to Gamefly after about a week and a half though, might get it again.

Out of the games I own, my real favorite is Kinect Sports 2. The tennis is great, I wish they went way more in depth with it, like ranked matches on live, lots of stats, etc. That would be great. But it doesn't keep track of any of that stuff, wins, losses, etc. Just calories and 'fans gained.' All in all I've gotten a lot of play out of that game, been maxed at level 50 for quite a while.

Also a fan of Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012. Lots and lots of different exercises and activities to do.

Also have but don't really play: Dance Central, Kinect Adventures, Gunstringer, Fruit Ninja

05-21-2012, 12:56 PM
Rise Of Nightmares.
But you need a bigger space,cause a message will pop if you are too close.
Thats because you have to kick,punch,etc. and the game is 'protecting' you from breaking stuff.

05-25-2012, 02:40 PM
1. Fruit Ninja
2. Dance Central 2
3. Kinect Sports 2

05-26-2012, 03:20 PM
My favorite Kinect game would be the gunstringer. It can be a bit hard at first (though having your Kinect set up correctly helps), but ends up being very fun and challenging. I loved it, and thought it was a great game.

05-26-2012, 04:02 PM
Of the not so many games I've played, Just Dance is my favourite.

05-26-2012, 08:03 PM
None. They all suck IMO.:P

05-27-2012, 03:08 AM
All of them are terrible but out all of them that I played so far Fruit Ninja is my favorite.

05-27-2012, 03:26 AM
Kinect Sports-series
Dance Central-series
Fruit Ninja Kinect
Rise of Nightmares
Twister Mania

That's about it....

I picked up a kinect specifically for Star Wars then it ended up being a disappointment and I didn't bother playing it. I was a bit disappointed, but it could be worse.

05-27-2012, 09:54 PM
Rise of Nightmares was a fun game, had a story mode, not like these mini-game collections.

05-29-2012, 02:44 PM
The best kinect game to me is sonic free riders even though it make sme move around alot :Bounce:

06-01-2012, 10:22 AM
Fruit Ninja...

Still looking for something really good :(

06-11-2012, 02:47 PM
Just Dance 3! Where four people can dance together. :)

06-12-2012, 05:57 AM
Kinect overall is a giant disappointment and a downright scam by Microsoft. I hate nearly every Kinect game that I have played. Never enjoyed one really or played one more than an hour or two (save Penguins of Madagascar which was an easy 1000).

Netflix is the "game" I enjoy most from Kinect. Voice commands are very handy when you are really lazy watching movies or Tv shows and the only thing I use mine for.

06-13-2012, 01:33 AM
I don't play my KINECT much. However, I would have to say KINECT Sports and KINECT Sports: Season 2 are probably the best!

Mr Flibbles
06-13-2012, 07:59 PM
your Shape Fitness evolved helped me lose a stone and a half (with better eating ;) ) so that gets my vote.

UFC was looking good until it crashed on me twice in a row on one of my 30 day regimes and i haven't played it since (3 months)

06-16-2012, 03:06 AM
Dance central
Kinect sports
Fruit ninja
Kinect adventures

06-16-2012, 03:47 PM
Fruit Ninja is a good laugh. For full retail games its still Kinnect Sports or Fitness Evolved in my opinion

06-16-2012, 08:32 PM
I tried Puss in Boots, nice game, although the moves aren't that special.

06-20-2012, 04:47 AM
whats everyones favorite kinect game?
i have 3 now and i want another
-Kinect Adventures
-Kinect Sports
-Dance Central

You should get Kinect disneyland adventures!!!!! You get to go to Disneyland without actually going there. lol jk.

In general I don't know. It seems to me that you already got the "good" ones for kinect.

michael wall
06-20-2012, 10:10 AM
I think that the Star Wars game that uses the kinect is amazing, my parents bought it for my little brother but I started playing it and really liked the kinect for it =3

06-20-2012, 02:50 PM
As far as controls go, I can only vouch for Dance Central 2. Microsoft needs to improve their software for the kinect. I believe the Xbox 360 has enough power to run it very good, but they aren't coding it well enough to manage this.

Zealous Dragoon
06-20-2012, 04:35 PM
The Gunstringer hands down. Dance Central is also fun but Gunstringer is hilarious and I can shoot like a cowboy. XD

06-21-2012, 03:37 AM
Gonna have to agree with you on that one by far on of the best ones. I also like the way the kinect was used in Forza 4

06-21-2012, 03:41 AM
Fruit Ninja for me. At some point I'll play The Gunstringer, Haunt, and Rise of Nightmares. Those also looked pretty fun.

06-21-2012, 07:53 PM
I really really like Kung-Fu High Impact.

06-26-2012, 04:26 AM
Kinect Adventures is the best

06-26-2012, 05:07 AM
My favorite is Dance Central 2 :)

07-17-2012, 03:23 PM
Gotta be Gunstringer

08-18-2012, 08:36 PM
The games I have/had so far:
-Adventures - fun, especially with 2 players I think many people like this one.

-Star Wars - traded it in quickly (got it when I got the Star Wars 360 console) Too much "training" and didn't react quite right.

- Dance Central 1 & 2 - love em! This one is my favorite of the dance games. This dance game gives you the chance to learn the dance steps in small pieces. Makes it a little more fun. There is also a "workout" mode in the game.

-Rhythm Party - would be cute for little girls, but not much fun otherwise. Just about moving your arms/legs at certain times to make designs. Reminded me of a Kinect version of Guitar Hero.

- Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout - Will kick your behind! not for someone who can't handle heavy and hard workouts but great!

- Just Dance 3 - good for kids. There is nothing to show you how the dance goes like Dance Central so I found it a little stupid, but perfect for kids that won't like to "learn" a dance and just want to have fun.

- Dance Masters - again, no instruction/practice mode. It gives you "targets" to hit. you can't break the dance down.

- Zumba Fitness - I tried this one but can't say if it is good or not since I couldn't do much of it (I have a bad back which limits the types of moves/workouts I can do).

- Disney Universe - I only played the demo - but I didn't like it (I am 39). I can see smaller kids loving it and adults liking it if they are playing with their kids. The demo lets you fly around a little which can get a little old for me after about 2 minutes.

-Body and Brain - This is a good game for kids. This lets them learn how to tell time, hand-eye coordination, math, logic.

Those are the ones I have played!

Kinect sports was pretty cool when you have a couple of mates round and is a laugh but its not something I spend all night doing

IMO Wreckateer for XBLA has been the best game I have played using the kinect. The controls are nice, have not had any glitches at all showing hands and feet in contorted positions. I personally have had a lot of fun with this game and highly recommend it to any person who has kinect.

10-09-2012, 12:58 PM
I think the kinect amals are fun and Zumba

10-10-2012, 07:54 PM
Does anybody do the bowling? I played bowling on Wii and liked it but I cannot tell which pack to get on Kinect that includes bowling.

10-11-2012, 08:06 AM
For me, that'd be Dance Central 2. Never been much of a dancer, but this game has shown me how much fun it can actually be. Also, out of all the Kinect games I've played so far, DC2 seems to be the most precise when it comes to capturing movements.
