So, I actually tried the game... and yeah, it's got accuracy problems. Almost every time I tried to do a left spinning backfist, I'd get a left middle hook instead, and I had a heck of a time managing the dodge -> right round kick series. It kept doing a left round kick instead, probably because I was stepping slightly with my left foot.

Also, there were a few techniques that it wanted me to do (like the heel kick) that just didn't seem like a good idea.

It's a workout... but not that accurate. Real pity, I hope someone does something better designed and really nails it.

(disclaimer: I don't know you, I saw this post on dr4b's friends feed - so, unsolicited advice from a stranger, take it with a grain of salt. However, I happen to be a small cog on the Kinect platform team, hence the attention. :) )

If you're after a workout, I'd recommend Your Shape or Dance Central. Even Kinect Adventures (the pack-in title) has me breaking a bit of a sweat, though that may have something to do with my lack of in-shape-ness.

Yeah, I've got both Your Shape and Dance Central. I was just hoping to play a fighting game with my body -- I've done some martial arts training, but it's been years, and I kinda miss it.

Dance Central is freaking awesome. ^^

Yeah, Harmonix really knocked that one out of the park. :) Glad you're having fun with some of the titles!

I haven't had the chance to try any of the Kinect, but Ty for the warning. I need a live sparring partner instead of the game platform. ;)
