What's odd is that Nintendo has been successful with their peripherals, yet they don't follow through. The balance board with Wii Fit is actually pretty neat and sold over 20 million. Sure, they have Wii Fit+, but that was more of an add-on. There have been like maybe a handful of other games that had some balance board support, but I'm surprised that Nintendo didn't capitalize on this thing. Motion+ had all that hype, yet only a few games requires it.

How is KI any different from ...


For a second there, I thought you meant Killer Instinct. And it looks like you don't have to pre-order Uprising for the $15 credit since it's also in this week's FS flyer.

My main problem wasn't the atrocious controls, but the fact that nintendo hyped up the flight parts which make up only 10% of the actual game. The rest is the combat with the horrible controls.

I thought everyone was aware that the flight was only for 5 minutes?

What? I thought it was flying for half the game and then ground for the other half.

Seems to me like the on foot sections are longer than the air sections. Plus the multiplayer is on foot only.

I don't know... only played the first few stages and the game seems good enough to learn the awkward controls. Seems a lot the time Japanese developers make weird control schemes or dumb choices just for the hell of it.

Its flying section, ground section then boss.

But the flight path only lasts for 5 minutes (at least according to the video), whether that is real time or not I have no idea.
