Double Fine Happy Action Theater

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Double Fine did a terrific job with Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster -- so much so, that I couldn't help but be jealous that kids were getting such well-designed Kinect games.

Double Fine Happy Action Theater

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: When we first saw the Kinect in action at an E3 event a few years back - we correctly labeled it the next big thing. This was the growth, progression, and direction the industry needs to go. It leap frogs motion controllers, and provides for all new experiences. Why am I bringing up the past?

  • Conclusion: Doesn't get much easier than that. Conclusion: Again, this is another great game from Double Fine that is extremely family friendly, easy and fun. I give it four stars instead of five because of the limited time that an adult might put in. At 800ms it is great.

  • Conclusion: Happy Action Theater is more of a gadget or a tech demo than a game. But it’s a great example of what the Kinect can do. It’s obvious that the technology is a long way from being perfect or even serviceable in a “hardcore” game but it’s fun.

  • Summary: It is getting to a point where I am beginning to wonder if Double Fine can do any “wrong”. Let me be honest, I am not one of those “original loyalists” back from the days of the point and click adventures; I am also not a huge fan of Psychonauts (though I did find it moderately entertaining).

Double Fine Happy Action Theater Review

GameZone
9 February 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s funny how I use an older quote like this to talk about a new game like Double Fine Happy Action Theater , but, hey, it’s true.  A lot of these developers have gone off the deep end creating Kinect experiences, to the point that they’re less about fun and more about the precision of things — the...
