Microsoft wanted to capitalise on the success of the Nintendo Wii and its motion controls, so they came up with a new accessory for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One called the Kinect. This accessory can be used to play games. It was a camera that tracked body movements, so the whole game could be controlled by the players.
Unfortunately, the Kinect was not a big hit with most of the games because they were quick cash-grabs that didn’t work well. A lot of people don’t like the Kinect because of this, but there are a lot of games for it that show off how much it can do that people didn’t think it could.
1. Kinectimals (2010)
Is a game that came out with Kinect. It’s not very deep or difficult, but it was one of the first games. When the player is on a strange island, they can raise and bond with an animal of their choice. With the Kinect, you can play with, feed, pet, and more with the Kinectimals.
Kinectimals is made by the same people who made Jurassic World Evolution 2 and its powerful dinosaurs, so it has a lot of the same things. When you play this game, you don’t have to worry about how complicated Tamagotchi is, but it still has beautiful graphics and cute animals. Adults can enjoy it, but young kids will likely play with their virtual pet for hours at a time.
2. Fruit Ninja Kinect (2010)
You can play Fruit Ninja on your phone or tablet, but it’s still fun to play. The Kinect version of the game has the same fun. To cut fruit, the player moves their hands like they are doing judo. The more difficult the game modes get, the player has to move faster.
As a Kinect version, one of the best things is how fun it is to move around because the fruit that the player throws goes everywhere. When this is done with a party of friends and family, it could be said that Fruit Ninja Kinect is better than the mobile game.
3. Kinect Adventures! (2010)
People who bought most Kinects already had a copy of the game “Kinect Adventures.” In this game, there are a lot of small games that show off the Kinect’s abilities. It’s not very special, but all of the minigames work well with the Kinect, and the characters move very well with the player.
You can have fun even though the game is only a few minutes long. There are many fun things to do in the game, even though it is short. It’s good fun for the whole family and can get the heart rate up and maybe a little sweat on the skin. However, games like Mario Party: Superstars have better minigames.
4. Star Wars Kinect (2012)
In many ways, Star Wars Kinect is a mess. The story mode is just a simple slasher, and Rancor Rampage is a twisted mode in which the player kills hundreds of innocent NPCs. Even the mode where you race pods is a simplified version of the Star Wars game, though.
However, Star Wars Kinect can be a lot of fun if there are more than one people playing. In the end, the story gets a lot more crazy, and the famous Galactic Dance-Off is ridiculous but in the best way possible. Playing Star Wars Kinect with friends can be very funny. Dancing around to Star Wars covers of pop songs is very funny.
5. Kinect: Disneyland Adventures (2011)
Getting to Disneyland is not only pricey but also a lot of work if someone lives a long way away. Kinect: Disneyland Adventures is for kids who want to go to Disneyland but can’t because it makes a fantasy version of the park.
Disney characters, like the many Disney princesses, can be met and the player can do tasks for them instead of just walking around the park. Disneyland is very well-replicated in the game. Because of this, Kinect: Disneyland Adventures is one of the more in-depth Kinect games.
6. Kinect Sports (2010)
It is clear that Kinect Sports was a lot like Wii Sports, one of the best-selling games for the Nintendo Wii. Launched with the Kinect. It is a collection of minigames for sports like soccer, volleyball, bowling and tennis, track and field and boxing that can be played with the Kinect.
It’s a good game on its own, and the Kinect does a good job of capturing the player’s moves. It’s when there are two or more people playing Kinect Sports that it becomes an addictive game that will help you lose some weight. It’s just how small the game is.
7. Kinect Sports: Season Two (2011)
A great idea for a Kinect party that wants to play games is to have both Kinect Sports games. Play six more minigames in Kinect Sports: Season Two, which are all based on games from the first game. There are a lot of different games for people to play. Tennis, golf, American Football, Baseball, Skiing, and Darts are just some of them.
Compared to the Nintendo version, Kinect Sports: Season Two does the same thing as Wii Sports: Resort and just makes it even better. It can be used as a companion piece to the first game.
8. Microsoft Kinect Adventures (Best for first-time gamers)
