Summary: I thought I was buying new and when I called amazon they said the unit was supposed to be new too. The box and the sensor had refurbished all over it. I returned it because it kept shutting down and having to restart even in the middle of game play.
Summary: This product was bought for my 4 year old. It was hard for her, and she was easier frustrated by the inadequate directions. So she doesn't play it anymore. Another game bought that won't be played anymore. It was a waste.
This is what happens when studios don't do play testing

Summary: First the good news. The recreation of Disneyland's landscape is gorgeous, right down to every last agave in Frontierland. Now the bad news. The Kinect user interface is painfully awful. Something as simple as "wave to do this" usually takes forever to work.
Summary: Someone at Microsoft, let's call him or her the worst person in the world, decided that Kinect games should be entirely controlled by waving your hands in the air. You hold out your hand and if your are lucky, a tiny white hand appears on the screen.
Summary: The detail and game play is great. They cover so much of Disneyland and the games within each story are of good quality. Unfortunately, this is an extremely frustrating game since Kinect can't see kids! My 3-year-old daughter learned many new swear words as we tried to play this game.
Summary: Disneyland Adventure: Not very good. Tracking not very good. Nice graphics. You have to work through ten minutes of tedious interaction with Mickey and Goofy before you can play any games. My kids played it for an hour and have no interest in playing it again.
Summary: The vast amount of mini-games and main street interactions are great. Graphics exceeded expectations. BUT, the controls are terrible. I thought there was something wrong with our Kinect sensor, but all other games work flawlessly.
Summary: Very buggy. It was a big disappointment for the kids (ages 5-8). I really thought being a first party Microsoft game that this would be the hit of our Christmas gifts but it has so many issues that it takes the fun out of it.
