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!
