Kinect may suck, buuut...

Postby Chukkz » Thu Nov 11, 2010 2:56 am

The press is quite harsh on the Kinect, shovelware launchtitles and not correctly working controls in Sonic Free Riders have gotten the product a bad reputation in some circles but there are also opposite voices...

Like for example here http://www.gamingnexus.com/FullNews/I-t ... 20369.aspx

Some authistic child who was not be able to play games at all because traditional controllers were too confusing is now able to enjoy games because of motion control and the simple fact that the body becomes the controller.

Also Brian Crecente of Kotaku now released another article after reviewing Sonic Free Riders and criticizing the non-working and random controls, being kind of surprised as other people seem to have no problems with the game whatsoever, or at least not to this magnitude. Sega themselves offered to fly him in to do a testplay in their studio to figure out the issue which he (I suppose in a moment of integrity to his colleagues) politely denied and rather hinted to make a poll among people to find out what the differences are. Read the full thing here http://kotaku.com/5686311/is-sonic-free ... -reviewers

So yeah it might not be gold but it also seems not to be so bad at all.
