In conclusione il gioco è perfettamente godibile, vario e quel che è più importante, divertente! Se siete hardcore gamer potrete sicuramente rilassarvi un pò, distendere le spalle e guadagnare qualche obiettivo facendo due risate e del sano movimento (che non fa mai male) e se siete alle prime armi con qualsiasi console o videogame, beh...non avrete nulla da imparare! Sapete fare quattro salti? Volete dimostrare a vostro figlio o a vostra madre che avete dei riflessi prontissimi? Gettatevi nella mischia! Ne uscirete col sorriso sul volto.

Unfortunately, Kinect Adventures really is just what I said it is -- a collection of minigames and features designed to show off what the Kinect can do, but nothing more. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it also doesn't make me want to play the Kinect for hours on end. It makes me want a more robust and not-so-family-friendly game. I want something like Dead Space 2 with Kinect capabilities here. Fun game, but not enough.

Kinect Adventures is a worthy game, and it makes the initial outlay for the cost of Kinect almost seem worth it. My mum always used to say that the best kind of adventure is one you don’t have to pay for, made from good times and spontaneity – a free adventure. What more could you want?

Still, it's breezy, colourful presentation and general silliness make Kinect Adventures easy to like. Not worth the outlay of £130 for alone, of course, but a fun, accomplished way of showing off your new toy. As pack-ins go, you can't ask for much more than that.

Kinect Adventures doesn't push the graphical capabilities of the Xbox 360, but its bright, slightly cartoonish environments create an inviting setting for all your adventuring, and it is one in which your avatar looks right at home. The limited assortment of activities means Kinect Adventures isn't likely to keep you entertained for hours on end, but some of these events are fun to come back to time and again. Kinect Adventures makes it easy to start having fun with your Kinect from the moment you get it set up, and it shows off what that eerie contraption that's staring at you can do.

Das Problem von Kinect Adventures: Hier wird weder Masse noch Klasse geboten, denn von den fünf Minispielchen gibt es mit der Flusssause nur eines, bei dem man tatsächlich einen Ansatz von Spaß spürt. Der Rest der Auswahl leidet entweder unter einer unglücklichen Spielmechanik (Reflex-Bergkamm), leichten Verzögerungen (Rallye-Ball), einer wackeligen Raumpositionierung (z.B. Raumknall) oder schlichtweg einem öden Spielprinzip (alle bis auf Flusssause), bei dem selbst die Mehrspieler- und Online-Optionen nicht mehr viel rausreißen können. Verglichen mit der Erstfaszination, die sich damals noch bei Wii Sports einstellte, sind diese ersten Minispiel-Erfahrungen mit Kinect eine herbe Enttäuschung.

The fun is fleeting but as a quality pack-in title, Kinect Adventures serves its purpose.

It seems as if Kinect Adventures is included with Kinect to showcase the capabilities of the device rather than provide any substantial gaming experience. It’s a game that’s fun in short bursts, but requires a ton of space for two-player multiplayer. Admittedly, Kinect Adventures starts off quite well as the Kinect bundle software, but after an hour it demonstrates its lack of depth once you realise that you’ve pretty much seen and done everything.
