Summary: Very interesting game. The premise is that your are piloting a vengeful Marionette puppet through the live show. The story is very engaging with mechanics that are easy to pick up. The reason for the star off is that the kinect sensor can be too slow at times causing you to crash into things or miss shots. Aside form this, the game is very fun.
Summary: The humor in this game is unmatched. The presentation, commentator that narrates the game in real time, and countless cameos from the developers at Twisted Pixel all combine to give a package that is not lacking on charm and humor. To finish off a boss, u literally smash your hand towards the ground and a giant Monty Python like arm will rain down in game and smash ur opponents.
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: 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: Some games are meant to be serious, others do not take themselves very seriously. Gunstringer is definitely in the latter category. The game is wrapped in a meta-narrative about a marionette puppet seeking vengeance. You are the puppeteer. Gunstringer is the first non-sports game I have really enjoyed for Kinect. It works because it is funny and because the controls have a beautiful simplicity to them.
