Excerpt: Rise of Nightmares for Kinect is a game that sets a few milestones, both globally in terms of being the first M-rated Kinect game released and personally in terms of being my first real foray into Kinect gaming.
Excerpt: After a short prologue in which your character dies by being squished in an Indiana Jones-esque closing wall trap, you take on the main role of Josh, vacationing in Romania with his wife Kate, hoping to fix a somewhat strained relationship.
Excerpt: Remember in Mission Impossible 64 (you remember) when Ethan Hunt had to schmooze his way through the Russian Embassy to quietly incapacitate the Ambassador’s aide, assume his face, then talk his way into the KGB headquarters?
Pros: Ambitious take on horror game controls, B-movie delight
Cons: Wonky use of Kinect, Imprecise movement and attacks, Moments of terror undercut by gaudy, ugly zombie nurses
Excerpt: The Kinect hasn’t offered much in the way of a hardcore, Mature-rated, motion-controlled experience, as of yet. However, Sega’s new first-person horror game, Rise of Nightmares, aims to give Kinect owners another reason to get up off their couch other than to pet tigers or dance along to Britney...
Pros: Chopping zombies to bits, The auto-walk feature, Unexpected plot twists
Cons: Awkward control scheme, Lack of enemy variety, Too much hack, not enough horror

Excerpt: IT’S A MONSTER!!!!! Decades of cinema has made even the dumbest of movie-goers aware of the cast of stereotypes that have charmed and plagued their way into our minds. In the conventional horror, you have loads to choose from, from the braveish and slightly lucky protagonist to the jail-bait who’s...
Pros: Combat motion controls are a fun novelty to begin with, Fair amount of collectables to those who endear to it
Cons: Combat controls soon screw up at the worst of times, Walking controls soon grate thanks to inaccuracy and unimaginative level design, Not scary in the slightest
Excerpt: "Rise Of Nightmares on Segan kolmas Kinect-pelijulkaisu. Harmillisesti suuresta potentiaalistaan huolimatta Rise Of Nightmares on vähän sinnepäin onnistunut FPS-kauhupeli, jota vaivaavat tönköt ja vaikeasti hallittavat, sekä näin muuten toimivaa kauhutunnelmaa rikkovat kontrollit. "
Pros: + Zombien mättäminen on toimivaa ja monipuolista, + Verisyyttä ei ole turhaan sensuroitu, + Musiikki ja äänet, + Tunnelma on parhaimmillaan painostava..
Cons: - ..Jonka kankeat ja rasittavat kontrollit tuhoavat, - Peli tallentaa turhan harvoin Kinect-peliksi
Summary: Già dal suo annuncio, Kinect è stata etichettata come una periferica non adatta ai giochi “hardcore”, o “più seri” se volete. La mancanza di un controller fisico faceva presupporre l’assoluta impossibilità di giocare titoli più impegnativi, come uno sparatutto o un action free-roaming.
Pros: L'idea è originale...
Cons: ...ma è stata realizzata male, Totale mancanza di sfida, Trama inesistente
