Kinect Sports: A Serious Challenger To Wii Sports


Posted November 3, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

Kinect Sports

Nintendo's Wii hooked practically the entire world a few years ago with the release of Wii Sports, but can Microsoft repeat that kind of magic with Kinect Sports? G4's resident jock Jake "drop and give me 20!" Gaskill tried the game out and was very, very impressed.

"Microsoft’s Kinect Sports succeeds in one way that both Wii Sports and Sports Champions fail: no controller means no more constantly worrying that you’re going to fling a remote into your television or across the living room. And this lack of anxiety means you can more freely engage yourself in the highly physical sports available to you. This also means you’re going to need to stretch more than just your arm before you play this game. It’s a fully body workout for sure. I was limping around for days after two, admittedly long, sessions. I know now why Microsoft included the little 'Feeling tired? Take a break.' alert bubble that pops up after you’ve playing for an extended period of time."
