Excerpt: I have been following Kung-Fu Live for some time now. The concept of taking a camera scan of a person, and putting it onto the screen inside a video game is an interesting one. Punch and your in game character punches. Kick and your in game character kicks.
Conclusion: So on that note, it's obvious to see that recommending Kung-Fu Live is something I just can't do. These sorts of camera motion games were all we had back in the early 2000's, but in 2010 with PlayStation Move and Kinect showcasing incredible tech, these inaccurate, over complicated titles aren't...
Excerpt: So, Microsoft are asking you to spend £130 or so for a Kinect camera for your 360. Did you know Sony can sell you a PlayStation Eye camera for £30 or so which can do the same thing? Well, if you have a big enough front room. And it’s well lit. And if you buy Kung-Fu LIV E from the PSN store.
Excerpt: When Kung-Fu Live says it puts you in the game, it really means it. Once calibrated, your likeness is scanned into the game and used in place of a hero character. From here, all of your movements are mapped and tracked, allowing you to interact with the on-screen images.

It's a slightly different issue when you're faced with a Kinect or Move title, considering the peripherals are still new enough that pointing out any of their limitations is worthwhile, if only in a Buyer's...
Summary: " Kung Fu LIVE " is an interesting concept which has too many flaws to be considered an essential purchase. The majority of these are in the frustrating process of setting up the game which can and more often will have you wanting to tear your hair out.

26 January 2011
Summary: Scoring this game is difficult. I’ve played it in an environment that worked well. However, many of us will want to play in our bedrooms or living rooms and this simply does not seem to be easily accomplished.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I have to confess that apart from pairing it with my Playstation Move controller, I have had little use for my PS3 Playstation Eye. Of course, I did spend hours with it when playing Eye of Judgment, but after that my Playstation Eye has been gently hibernating in my...
Summary: I really wanted to like Kung Fu Live. The PlayStation 3 downloadable EyeToy game has a lot going for it: The presentation is goofy-cool, a silly, comic book world perfect for a slight, gimmicky title, and the hook of the game is awesome.
Pros: Amusing Presentation, Interesting Concept
Cons: Lengthy, Picky Set-Up, Wonky Controls, Tiring and Frustrating
