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. Jump, and well you should have the idea by now. The PS3 Eye Camera is needed for this downloadable video game.
Kung Fu LIVE Review (PSN) - Playstation Eye Required
Gamers Daily News
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. All those show floor booths had completely plain white walls and very bright overhead fluorescent lighting. IF you have an area like that to play it will be brilliant, if not, it will totally suck and I would suggest you skip it.
Summary: Kung Fu Live is a completely absurd, but completely awesome game. With something for everyone, Kung Fu Live is a game worth using or buying a Playstation Eye. Those who don't want to try it are probably just too afraid to laugh at themselves or too afraid to sweat a little, but they're the ones missing out on a chance to put their Karate Kid Crane Kick to the test.
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 games drawer. So this weekend I decided to have some fun with Kung Fu Live, a fairly new game that has popped up on the Playstation Store.
Summary: Meet the strict criteria for set-up and calibration and you might enjoy the novelty of seeing yourself kicking ass on screen, but you'll still have to battle with the controls just as much as you will against the bad guys.
Pros: Seeing ourselves on screen, kicking ass, The comic book art style and over-the-top, humourous story mode
Cons: The strict criteria for getting the game to actually work, How it fails to recognize your moves consistently. The PlayStation Eye just wasn't made for full body motion-sensing
Conclusion: Then there are the Chi powered special attacks. The Power Punch (Two arms out) and Flying are fun, but there is nothing more satisfying than a good jump in the air, followed by kneel and Ground Pound to really get the blood racing. Actually, shooting lightning from your hands is almost as satisfying.
Kung Fu Live: Luftboxen vor der Kamera, ganz ohne Kinect

Summary: Dennoch garantiert das Spiel zumindest bis dorthin einen Heidenspaß. Grafisch hält es allerdings nicht mit einem Super Street Fighter 4 oder Soul Calibur 4 mit. Dafür glänzt Kung Fu Live mit einer interaktiv erzählten Rahmenhandlung zwischen den Kapiteln. Zunächst sollt ihr vor der Kamera bestimmte Posen einnehmen.
Summary: "Bojová umìní mají své kouzlo, které pøitahuje spoustu fandù. I mezi hrami se bojové hry staly pojmem a titul s názvem Kung-Fu Live toto pravidlo jen potvrzuje. Nyvíc je celá tato hra ztvárnìna velmi zábavným stylem, což zaruèuje spousty hodin perfektní zábavy...
