Rise of Nightmares

True achievements
3 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Not so much in voice acting but the rest of the game sounds frightening to say the least which only enhances it's rich atmosphere. For anyone with a kinect who is a hardcore gamer like myself i cannot recommend this game highly enough. It would be a 5 out of 5 if it weren't for the minor hiccups and polishing issues in the game but in conclusion Rise of nightmares is an all around phenomenal game.

Rise of Nightmares Review

22 September 2011
  • Excerpt: It’s typically a bad sign for a console or peripheral when our expectations for any game that supports it are low. As a parent, the Kinect is a wonderful game device that provides hours of enjoyment for my kids.
  • Pros: + Campy horror, + Fun weapons and combat, + Some showcase moments for the Kinect
  • Cons: Big gaps between autosave points, Link to full manual does not work, Areas requiring fine movement are frustrating

(Xbox 360 Review) Rise of Nightmares

The Entertainment Depot
20 September 2011
  • Summary: The phrase “for a Kinect game” must grate on Microsoft’s nerves, but that is simply the state of the games at this stage in the platform’s lifecycle. This is also a problem for those who have the expectations of a motion-control-only game being as refined as a traditional release that’s had the benefit of decade-plus to fall back on in regards to its mechanics and control schemes.

  • Conclusion: Rise of Nightmares has been a refreshing experience for me, reminding me that motion gaming can work great when developers put forth a complete effort that encompasses a solid story and smart use of motion control.

Rise of Nightmares

  • Excerpt: The Kinect is riddled with games aimed at children and more particularly some of the third party games are rather lacklustre and basic. The Kinect is easily one of the most unique and innovative control systems of the 21st century, however many developers have failed to create something engaging and more importantly entertaining with this control system. There have been a few decent games such as Child of Eden and Kinectimals which are definitely the standout titles.

Rise of Nightmares – Review

insidegames.ch
21 December 2012
  • Summary: Bisher konnte man mit Kinect nur tanzen, Katzen streicheln und Früchte zerhacken. Es gab bis jetzt kein wirkliches Core-Game im Kinect Lager. Das will SEGA nun mit „Rise of Nightmares“, dem ersten Spiel im Horror Genre für Kinect, ändern. Ob es SEGA gelingt Kinect ein neues Gesicht zu verleihen erfahrt ihr hier im Test. Lass den Albtraum beginnen… Kinect-Game mit Core-Steuerung? Sind Grafik und Sound ein Albtraum?
  • Pros: Open World, Große Waffenvielfalt, Viel Blut..., Lange Kampagne, Beste Kinect-Steuerung, Sehr gute Erkennung durch Kinect, Coole Quick-Time Events, Atmosphärischer Soundtrack, Cooler Grafik-Filter, Trash-Horror Feeling, Nimmt sich selbst nicht ernst, Kreatives Gegnerdesign, Automatisch-Laufen Funktion, Cooles Tutorial
  • Cons: Auf Dauer eintönige Kämpfe, Veraltete Grafik, Wenig Details, Schlechte Synchronsprecher, Bewegungen werden gelgentlich nicht richtig erkannt, Langweiliges Level-Design, Seltend wirklich spannend
