Summary: I bought this for my children, but I play it more than they do. You can get a good cardio work out playing the game. I beat all of my children at this game. My children are 16, 11, and 8. All girls except the 16 year old. I'm over 40. I often play it while wearing the Tae Bo PT 24/7 resistance bands. I'm usually drenched in sweat after fighting 3 matches.
Summary: Of all the Kinect games I have tried this is closer to the top than the bottom. Not as good as Kinect Sports/Boxing, not as bad as Kinect Sports 2. My primary goal is exercise and burning calories, this helps me do it. But it is not as accurate/playable as Kinect Sports Boxing, which for me is the best out there. PowerUP does make me use both hands and legs, which is good.
Summary: I bought this for my son after he's played the Avengers game demo over and over. while this does seem to offer a little variety, it ultimately did become repetitive after a time and now is only played occasionally However for the price I can't argue the time we got out of it..
Summary: Bought this for my 6-year old son, who is completely obsessed with super heroes. He loves the game, and just needed my help to understand that the figures shown on the side will light up when you have that particular power available (you can only use them every so often), and that they are also telling you what body movements you need to make in order to use that skill/power/weapon. Not too violent or scary, which is a big deal for me.
Summary: I bought this on sale for $20 as I wanted more then a 'party' game for the Kinect. It's not a game i'd pay $60 for but for a gamer the only ones i'd pay that price for are the big titles Batman, ME, GoW, Halo etc. As for the game itself it was fun to play. The different suits you equip all have different abilities that are activated by performing the onscreen instructions, which so far have been picked up with no problem.
Summary: Be prepared to look like a total dork as you throw pretend fireballs at an invisible opponent, but Powerup Heroes is a blast. The game is basically like street fighter, except moves and combos are performed by throwing punches, kicks, and utilizing different DBZ type hand motions. This may sound a bit mundane, but trust me, linking up a combo with your heroes different powers can be invigorating when pulled off successfully.
