Not bad but wish they did B2G1. I'd buy and return to Target.

Agreed, except I would only add that Kinectimals is for kids... I bought the other 3 on that list from Target's b2g1 and they are all a ton of fun. Kinect Sport's track games are way cooler than I thought they'd be.

Sonic got crap reviews everywhere except IGN.
I have been following Kinect a lot on forums, based on impression (I don't have it yet), it seems the best games are Kinect Sports and Dance Central, followed by Kinectimals, Dance Masters and Your Shape Fitness.

To me the single best game is Dance Central, followed closely by Kinect Sports and then Kinectimals. Of course those are the only 3 games I own for it too. So I guess the reviewers got it right basically as far as I can tell.

If you're not afraid to dance around and possibly look like an idiot, Dance Central is very good. It can actually teach you to dance somewhat if you're completely retarded when it comes to dancing (like me). You can set it to easy and it will have you mimic the moves and you can even slow it down if you need and do it over and over. If you can't have fun with dancing around though, go for Kinect Sports as long as you have someone else to play it with. If you have a younger kid, also get Kinectimals. I haven't played that one yet but it is clearly adorable and so doesnt matter if it sucks because your kids will love it anyway.

Hmm... That's basically 2 games for $72, or $36 each. Not bad at all. I might have to jump on Kinect Sports and Kinectimals (hoping to get Dance Central free from Old Navy on Black Friday).

The B2G1 free at Target, for me, would have been $108 after tax. That breaks down to $36 each, so this is actually just as good a deal.

Giant Bomb has done a Kinect marathon, playing through about nine games once they got the thing.

Dance Central, Kinect Sports are both the top games to get. But Your Shape: Fitness Evolved is pretty slick for not really being a game. That one is for those who actually want to do a workout, but it seems solid.

Dance Masters is, well... it's DDR but without the mat. Even down to the music and rather grating arcade personality it has. Sonic Freeriders requires a spine, really. If you have any back issues at all, you'll snap in half after a few races.

Kinectimals looks great, and a bit more structured than I thought which for kids it means that they should stay with it for longer than a few days. But for anyone over nine it would be almost irritating how adorable it is. And the flying pixie/furry thing got on my nerves FAST.

Joyride was going to be a freemium game by Microsoft, now it's a $50 game. That should tell you how much content the game really has. Also, driving without actual controls doesn't seem fun to me. Adrenalin Misfits, see thoughts on Sonic Freeriders. But somehow it's even more annoying by trying to be EXXXXXTREEEEEME!

Items (2): $94.51
Shipping & Handling: $0.00
Promotion Applied: -$23.63
Total Before Tax: $70.88
Estimated Tax To Be Collected: $0.00
Order Total:$70.88

For Kinectimals (yes I have young kids) and Kinect Sports (should have been packed in, wat are micro$oft, dumpid?).

Better than B2G1 at 8% (really greater) sales tax and considering 50 cents for gas to get to and from Target, and I'd have ended up with a spare game to sell, Dance Central, since I already have it and couldn't bare to buy another crappy game.

Hmmmm. I just bought Dance Masters from Walmart, but I could return it. Haven't opened it yet. Was thinking of the Fitness game or Kinect Sports.

Unfortunately Microsoft is smart. Kinect Sports was in the top 10 of videogames sales on Amazon the last time I looked. I don't think Kinect Adventures would be if you switched pack ins.

The ones I'm getting:
Dance Central - duh
Dance Masters - different enough compared to Dance Central in terms of both playstyle and soundtrack. Plays a lot more like DDR or Para Para. Looks like a lot of fun from the vids I've seen
Your Shape Fitness Evolved - the most well thought-out software for the Kinect in terms of design and UI
Kinect Sports - the minigames seem hit or miss here, but overall seems worth it at B1G1

I was watching through that yesterday. It seemed like the best part about Kinect was the ability to have your avatar wave its arms around like crazy during the game. The Kinect Sports video is here. It's worth a few good laughs.

We liked Your Shape Fitness a lot more. It plays a lot better and Biggest Loser can be hit or miss with controls.

Sweet just picked up a kinect last night but held off on any games until I could read some reviews/deals. I went with Dance Central and Your Shape. Hopefully Your Shape is good because the demo made it seem awesome but I'm questionable about the amount of content.

Your Shape is pretty amazing, have it and have played it for quite a bit...

Oh and for anybody who got a launch game, any luck getting them to give you this offer too?

Sounds like a good deal. I was going to get Your Shape on my next pay day anyway. Not sure if I should get Dance Central or Kinect Sports as the other game. Any suggestions? I wanna check out Dance Central, but I'm just worried me and my family will get bored with it sooner because of less variety. I mean, it's pretty much JUST dancing, isn't it?

good deal, but not much of the current stuff is doing much for me. I'm really looking forward to seeing kinect in some AAA titles. I like my PS3 more as a console, but think Sony really jacked themselves with Move. I already have a wii, and don't like to make the same mistake twice. Sure the move should have more precise controls, but the wii controls just don't work that well on a lot of games, especially since the wii has had a LOT of companies spending huge amounts of development resources to get at the wii install base, and most of what they come up with seems gimmicky to me.

I'll never forget, Nintendo, playing Galaxy 2 and having the varying response time cause countless deaths on the Spring Mario levels, which really weren't hard.....if the contrls worked right

Well I emailed them and asked...not like this is a price drop of $5 or something we're talking $25 off only a few days after these games came out. Hopefully they'll extend the offer to me and I'll get either Dance Central or Kinectimals for $25...

In for Kinectimals and Kinect Sports.

I got the sensor and Dance Central when they had the $30 credit offer. Used that $30 towards these 2 games as well.
