Summary: I like this game alot. It is one of the better Kinect games only missing movements on occasion. I play the two player mode with my 5 year old nephew. I control the body movement and one gun and he controls the other gun. In solo play you can even play from a chair. It came with Fruit Ninja as a bonus, Awesome.
Quirky but Fun - a good start to a new genre of participation games

Summary: Gunstringer is an interesting attempt to bring Action/Adventure games to the Kinect. One hand controls the character (left, right, jump over obstacles) while the other shoots the gun. Also included was Fruit Ninja - practice your karate on helpless fruit! I was looking for games I could play on the Kinect with my son. While he has me in Gunstringer, I've got him beat in Fruit Ninja!
Summary: A friend got this with his Kinect Bundle some time ago, we tried it recently and put a good few hours on it having a great time. The puppet character and script are quite humorous and the animation style fits the theme well. This on rail type gameplay works VERY well with the motion sensing Kinect, and where hiccups do occur they are generally overshadowed.
Summary: i have to comment on all of the people who rip this game because of the "sexual themes". yeah, it says that right on the box for the rating so i don't know what the big deal is. it amazes me how it is somehow alright for your kid to play games where you kill massive amounts of people but a little sex is a bad thing. please do your job as a parent and read the rating to ensure that the game is age appropriate for your child. as for the game, i like it.
Summary: Gunstringer is a great game for Kinect. It may be a little difficult to get used to how the game operates and what your movements should be. I have only just started playing it so I can't say much about the game in its entirety, but I do think that it is very creative story line and it is interesting how that add your gamertag into everything.
Summary: My view towards all Kinect games is that they should be priced as XBLA titles, between $10-$20. They are all mainly arcade titles that you'll play for a few hours at a stretch and will most likely end up collecting dust after a week or two. I did this with Child of Eden and I'm doing it with this game. I may or may not finish either game and it doesn't really matter because of the arcadey nature of Kinect games.
Summary: i got the downloaded version because it came with my kinect and i thought it was going to be stupid. but i played it and i was actually amused by how it was played. i wanted to play a game that was simple and i didnt have to do alot of moving around. i also wanted a game with a plot. i didnt beat the game yet. i dont know when i will haha. but i will get to it when i have shoulders of an mma fighter lol. but i would say when the price gets cheaper to get this game.
