  • 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: 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

  • Summary: Sega's gone experimental with Rise of Nightmares, a first-person horror game controlled by your whole body thanks to the Kinect.
  • Pros: Interesting use of Kinect, Some creepy atmosphere, Combat can be goofy fun
  • Cons: Really clunky controls, Looks and acts very last-gen, Horror with the lights on seems wrong

  • Summary: Clumsy motion controls and flimsy combat render Rise of Nightmares a frustrating albeit admirable Kinect adventure.

Rise Of Nightmares Review (360)

  • 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

I Love Videogames
25 February 2013
  • 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

  • Excerpt: I Rise of Nightmares tager du rollen som Josh. Josh er spiludviklernes bud på en ”ærketypisk” amerikaner: han er en dum drukkenbolt, der på nær-magisk vis slet ikke har et eneste interessant karaktertræk eller så meget som skyggen af en personlighed.
  • Pros: Forsøger noget nyt, Til tider ganske uhyggelig stemning
  • Cons: Ufrivillig komisk plot og dialog, Elendig kontrol, Ensformigt, Kedelige omgivelser

Rise of Nightmares Review

XGN
26 September 2011
  • Summary: Zombiegames zijn tegenwoordig erg populair en dus wilde SEGA zich er weleens aan wagen. Maar wat SEGA heeft gemaakt is niet zomaar een zombiegame, het is namelijk enkel en alleen speelbaar met Kinect.
  • Pros: Meeslepend verhaal, Breed scala aan wapens, Mooie omgevingen
  • Cons: Vreemd eerste hoofdstuk, Verschrikkelijke besturing, Input lag, Ontoepasselijke muziek
