Question What's your opinion on PowerUp Heroes?

I think it looks promising, even though the trailer was a bit cheesy. lol

I'm not much of a Kinect player, but PowerUp Heroes could be an exception.

I also noticed in one of the screenshots that they're utilizing Uplay in the game.

I definitely want to play it though, have you seen the achievements?

There's only 13 for 1000 and the achievements look easy!

So far it looks like a rental to me, but we'll see when more news is released.

What was your initial reaction upon reading about PowerUp Heroes?

Just looked at the images... this looks REALLY interesting to me. One can only hope that you can unlock the outfits for your dashboard avatar.

Looks like it could be fun. I'm hoping almost all the achievements can be unlocked in local co-op, so my wife and I can boost those.

At least the characters have those snazzy uniforms, but it doesn't seem like they're customizable other than choosing the uniform and gaining the subsequent powers that is unique to each. Based on the achievements, it seems like you choose one character with several uniform changes, which is like the opposite of Marvel v Capcom or similar fighting games, where you can choose a team of 3 characters and swap them out during the fight. I didn't take the time to watch the trailer, though, so I could be way off.

Looks like an easy 1k, plus it doesn't look or sound to bad either. Might be my next kinect game.

i have ALOT to say but i'll try to keep it short.

first off can you say mortal kombat on crack! this is gonna be friggin awesome! it'll really test what shape you're in. trying to get online ahcieves without cheating will really be a challenge!

i hope alot of people get this as the tourneys would be a blast!

finally a real core game to show what kinect can really do! i think this will change how people see kinect.

a must buy on day 1 for me. have my pre order down too. suits should make fir interesting combos. i hope its more real fighting than yelling commands. that way you really earn those ahcieves & stay in shape too!

next biggest thing next to starwars! so cant wait!

I think this could be really enjoyable! It'd be fun to throw your hands out to throw fireballs and pretend to throw people around the screen with telekinesis. Would make a potentially fun party game too since fighting games are fun with a group of people swapping out with each winner. I imagine it'd be even more fun with more interaction. Keeping an eye on this one.

When i first heard about this game my initial thought was "Oh noes, a Gamestop game?" lol, it does look interesting, and I'll probably end up picking it up.
