Conclusion: I'm currently replaying the Campaign, I've unlocked all of the suits (even got the Uplay-one along with the Uplay-powerup) and played some Versus (haven't touched Xbox Live yet). To put it bluntly it's a really fun game, pulling the superhero-like moves off is fun, the fights have a lot of variables and actually require skill. It can also be a good workout (that dodge-move; MY SIDES).
Maybe I'm getting old... It's not you, it's me, etc....

Summary: The first point I'd like to make on this Game is that the Kinect picks up your movements extremely well, more so than any other Kinect game I've played. It really is quite satisfying to pull off the various special moves with such a degree of accuracy. The presentation is fine, the graphics and sounds are fine, so no negatives so far, right? Not quite...
Summary: I kept an eye on this game when I first heard it was in the devlepment stage however along with a lot of kinect games I was not going to pay £30+ for such a short lived game. So I waited until Amazon dropped the price and picked it up at £13. As a £13 priced game I would say its worth its money the controls are great and generally the kinect pickes up the movements and response well.
Summary: PowerUp Heroes was honestly the last Kinect title I thought would work and which I would enjoy. Having seen how the Kung Fu Panda 2 Kinect game miserably failed in the fighting genre, and Fighters Uncaged couldn't get close to delivering a nice fighting game, the market is still wide-open on this field. It was actually one of the first things that came to mind when Kinect was announced: a nice karate/kung-fu title.
Summary: PowerUp Heroes is a fun "beat em up" which shows off the kinect very well! You can choose between a variety of "super heros" each boasting their own unique super powers. Think Mortal Kombat (but without the blood and gore!) The fun part being you are in control! The special moves are easy to master and the various fight modes keeps the game interesting, my only criticism would be the PEGI 12 rating! The action is nothing you wouldn't see in an everyday cartoon!
