XBOX 360 Kinect Review Round-Up

Review Round-Ups are a collection of reviews for a product from sites that I read before I decide on going ahead with the purchase or not.


  • Reviews seem generally mixed.
  • You will need a lot of space to use Kinect.  Most sites noted you need at least 6 ft for single player games, and 9 ft for multiplayer local games.
  • Gotta move those coffee tables so they are not in front of the TV, otherwise Kinect won't be able to see your feet
  • Most sites said the voice commands seemed to work really well, but current implementation is limited
  • Navigating the XBOX Dashboard with Kinect (read: using hand motions) is limited and needs work
  • Almost everyone was pretty excited about the future potential of the product.  Microsoft just needs to work out some bugs and expand functionality.
  • Launch lineup of Kinect games is pretty weak with the pack-in Kinect Adventures and the sold separately Dance Central being the stand outs.
