Gamers Daily News

Summary: As a $15 add on it is a pretty good deal. As a $50 disc, not so much because you are then effectively paying $25 for bears and $25 for cats. After the holidays the price on this will probably drop a good $10 and then it might be a better time to nab this up.
Excerpt: A virtual pet game for kids set on a tropical island full of games and treasure, Kinectimals is an easy sell. There must be a lot of children putting Kinect and Kinectimals at the top of their Christmas list this year. Will their dreams come true?
Summary: I like cats but I love bears. How could you not love those rounded ears, that fuzzy face and little nub tail? I've been known to talk to bears. At bookstores I'll flip through bear picture books like some kind of addict.
Conclusion: If you have young children, Kinectimals is a must - it will keep them entertained, and you'll secretly enjoy it too. For those who are possibly a bit too old to be cuddling cute tigers by yourself, however, you may want to give it a miss.
Excerpt: There hasn't been a game released in a long time that has had me sitting in anticipation until I saw a demonstration of Kinectimals. From the first minute of the demonstration I was instantly drawn into the concept of the game and I knew I had to have it.
