Smile Honest review :)

ok so lets leave the politics out of here please. this review is about the game only.

now i must say i really wanted to enjoy this game. however it is way to realistic. you will die ALOT.

this has got to be the toughest game on kinect. dont even bother using a controller, it just sucks!

the graphics & controls are good. you'll need lots of space side to side. it is very challenging & i dont recomend it for big people.

i'll give this a 7.5/10. no online, to realistic, lots of ducking,leaning & such. heck even in cover you get hit alot.

decent game but on normal difficulty its mission impossible.

rent it first to see if you like it.

i liked how it played. but cant get past 2nd part to the 1st mission ugh. i'm in shape too.

hope this helps message me if you have questions thanks.

forgot to add it plays alot like time crisses but with realism in terms of how much danage you can take. recomend renting first then decide. its not good but its not bad. can be very fustrating.

ok i'll expand on some things here.

controller issue = if you play children of eden. this isnt those controls. child/eden was awesome, this is the opposite!

as for the space issue. you need 15 ft by 15 ft for this to work properly. no i'm not kidding! i have 8ft by 8ft to work with, also when i mentioned leaning, its more of a lunging.

when ducking for cover, you'll find yourself sitting on your ass alot! this game requires to much space.

i can play any kinect game no proablem. UFC i cant do push ups as i'm to close to sensor. otherwise i can do everything including self defense game!

the graphics i can forgo but not the controls & space issue!

in fact, its so bad, i'd give it a 3 instead of my generous 7,5.

youtube will have you believe this game works great. it doesnt tell you how much space is needed nor the controller issue.

the controller just doesnt work here. so you need to use kinect.

i have over 18 kinect games & reviews on them. so if this review seems shallow, its because the game is.

also keep in mind i use the wii. its both time consuming & hard to type with.

my friends on xbl, my youtubers all buy games via my reviews.

heck i have a police officer getting self defense because of my review.

there really isnt much to say about this game. it lacks in almost everything.

bottomline; rent first.

games i have on here under "Honest review" include.

self defense training camp, rise of nightmares, powerup heroes, grease dance, just dance3, gunstringer, forza4, motionsports:adrenaline, bigbleague sports just to name a few.

so please check them out & see how much depth i do.

please keep in mind i use the wii for internet stuff. thanks for reading

Thumbs down

That is the shallowest user review I have ever read on this site. Dying a lot isn't all that rare for shooters. However, you could have gone into a lot more detail here. Why do you die a lot? Is the game cheap, fairly challenging, or do you suck at these types of games games? Do you die in one hit, or can you retreat and recover?

Why is using a controller a bad idea? How accurate are the Kinect controls? You didn't mention the audio. How is the music, and how is the voice acting? Do the weapons sound convincing?

You don't recommend the game for "big people"? Do you mean adults, the obese, or giants?

Morever, I don't know if English is your first language, but brushing up on your grammatical skills would be a very good idea. Poor grammar can be very distracting to those who know better.

Overall I give your rating a 1/10, and the 1 is only for effort. The purpose of a review is to inform others about your experiences with the game. I feel like I know nothing more about the game than I did a half hour ago.

actually i covered everything in the review. guess you cant read.

the amount of time it took for you to comment on this. would have been more constructive by doing your own review. yet i see no review from you.

i use the wii on the internet. so mistakes happen.

you're just a troll. goto youtube then or are you to dumb to figure that out.

No, actually you didn't. If you had covered everything or even come close, I wouldn't have posted the valid questions that I did. Like I said, you didn't even mention the audio. Saying that using a controller "just sucks" makes you sound like you're incapable of expanding on your own point. I have written a few reviews, and even in the first one, I knew better than to make a vague statement without backing it up with an example. You don't want your readers wondering what you mean.

Save your 'cant read' comment. It's petty and obviously wrong, especially since my spelling and grammar are far superior to yours.

No, I haven't done my own review. You want to know why? Because I haven't played this game, and I doubt I will. However, I don't have to have played the game or have written my own review to know that yours isn't very good. I am curious as to how this game turns out, and I have yet to see a professional review. That's why I even bothered reading your review. I was hoping to be somewhat informed, but I wasn't.

Um, good for you? Not sure what that has to do with anything.

I know the 'troll' label is convenient because it marginalizes me and, in your mind, devalues what I say and means you can ignore what I say. However, in my first post, I was merely criticizing your review, not insulting you like you did to me. If you're going to be so defensive and thinly-skinned, I wonder why you even bothered in the first place.

Oh STFU you obnoxious fool. The guy has explained that he is using the Wii browser to post his review, but you're intent on being all over his back about his grammar. So his review is more of a brief summary than a full-on detailed essay, who cares?

If you didn't like the review, then offer some constructive criticism rather than just outright attacking him. To claim that you were criticising (yeah, it's spelt with an s, not a z, SPAG boy) him and not insulting him just makes you look like an outright liar or an outright idiot. You choose.

This guy is making a post on a forum, not being paid to do a piece of journalistic gold. If the review wasn't to your taste, then get over it.

He does not need to trash a game he can't play and like he said people buys games off his reviews he has downright trashed this game when he can't even play it past the first mission cause it to hard for him so dannyboy you jus need to STFU and sit down and stop acting like his Bi&@h
