Summary: Double the fine, double the fun Hey, Television! Check out Double Fine’s latest game for Xbox Live Arcade: Kinect Party . In fun-loving Double Fine fashion, it was released for free upon launch in mid-December until the New Year.
Conclusion: It is a simple and very entertaining way to spend an evening for people of any age. It almost makes you feel like a kid again playing it. In my humble opinion this game is how the Kinect should be used.
Excerpt: You may remember Double Fine Happy Action Theater , which I reviewed about a year ago and found to be an odd game that revelled in its experiments and originality. There was certainly room for improvement, though, and to this end Double Fine have released a sequel: Kinect Party .
Excerpt: Like your games stress-free? We have two words for you: Kinect Party . Like Double Fine’s Happy Action Theater ( OXM rating: 8.0), which debuted earlier in 2012, this follow-up is the ultimate in low-hassle gaming.
Pros: + Family-friendly activities that mix dazzling virtual environments with fun experimentation., + Wearable items up the immersion; low-cost package; terrific multiplayer game.
Cons: ? Will this concept work even better on the next Xbox?
Conclusion: By getting rid of precision and life-or-death objectives, Kinect's many flaws are barely noticeable. The game's greatest success is that it uses Kinect to let you play, rather than forcing you to play with Kinect.
