My kids play Kinect Sports and Adventure. They have been crazy about Kinect Sports. It's really amazing how the camera can catch all the movements . The Kinect Sports gives a very good full body workout. My dh upper body ache all over after playing Beach Volleyball and Boxing with the kids. The songs used are quite good too. It's great family fun. :rahrah:

Both my DS love it. Especially the Kinetic sports games. I think the Kinetic is good as it does not require a remote control (which can be quite expensive to get one), and we did not need to worry the kids will accidently drop the remote while playing (which was why we decided on the Kinetic over Wii).

By the way, does anyone have the Party Games? Seems like the game is a bit difficult to control (instructions etc).

According to review, the Kinect Sports is by far the best. We have the Kinect Adventure, it's quite fun too. Don't know about Party Games. :celebrate:

Just got one as christmas gift and yes, a lot of fun with our 1st game for past 2 days - Kinect Adventure... Kind of funny with those camera shot on yourself. But my DS1 comment is that after a few trials, kind of becoming boring... i.e. his 2nd days on Kinect.

Not sure whether after 2 weeks of playing, will this be a general feeling. I do look forward to try out the SPORT. Does anyone know whether is there going to be one for kick boxing and where to get cheaper xbox Kinect games? This is a fun way to keep fit and have fun.

don't think kinect sports has kick boxing, only boxing. The track & field is also v fun...

You can take a look in amazon and get it delivered to SG. The prices are cheaper but u will have to wait for delivery...

Have not started on adventure as we are still crazy about sports :)

yeah was wodering where to get cheaper kinect games?

Checked on eBay, seems like with shipping cost, it is also quite costly. Unless I miss out other websites (if so please advise).

Have checked around the shopping centers, the "cheapest" one I can find is $54 for a game (but must pay $15 to be member), and $56 for nonmember.

ETA - Amazon seems to have good prices for the Kinect games, plus with the weak US dollars and strong SIN dollars recently, it might be a good deal :D
