Does anyone remember the EyeToy? Made for the Playstation 2 around the mid-life of its generation cycle, the Eyetoy brought some new life to the gaming scene. It wasn’t that well received, only really had about 2-3 games out for the basic webcam peripheral and with a strange Apple-like style they all had the word EYE in front of them but nevertheless it wasn’t half bad. But it seems to have returned…

Now back to the present and Fruit Ninja Kinect brings us not only the first arcade Kinect title but the first kinect title to bring back some of the fun previously brought to us via that original PS2 camera. Welcome to Week 4 of the Summer Of Arcade.

When Kinect launched, there was plenty of sports games to boot, with Ubisofts MotionSports 2 coming out soon, we take a brief look at #1 to see if it’s worth taking a punt at as a cheap title to get us ready for the sequel.

Throughout all of the different activities, unlike active games like Kinect Sport, Motionsport doesn’t get you involved in full games. Instead, you’re given lots of different challenges situated around the sport. Activities like Boxing, Horse Riding and Hand Gliding do have you perform the activities as you would normally go about them, but modes such as Football (both UK and US versions) are only challenge based like penalty shootouts (UK) or sprinting to the end line avoiding tacklers (US). This is a massive shame due to the fact games like Kinect Sports have a great way to have people playing Soccer together and in a proper game, rather than boring and done to death shootouts.

Enjoyable, innovative and a breeze to play. Sorry Sega, but if you EVER hoped for words like this, or anything similar to crop up in a review for your latest Sonic slaughter, Free Riders, then you truly are dreaming. Gamers, welcome to one of the most avoidable Kinect games currently on shelves. Or at this rate. Bargain bins.

It was pretty much inevitable really, as always at the forefront of every peripheral and console launch, Sega barges their way through with yet another Sonic title. This time round, Sonic is definitely tired and those stress lines are really starting to show.

So, late last year Kinect finally happened. And whilst Microsoft and other developers figure out what the hell they’re actually going to do with it, we’ve been working hard on getting the flurry of dance, sports and fitness games that everyone’s had a go at for launch. There has been so many its insane. But can Ubisoft’s Fitness Evolved be the better of the fitness games out for Kinect? I jump around like a sweaty idiot, so you don’t have to.

From the Kinect titles I’ve played, Fitness Evolved definitely has one of the better menus. By using the cameras the game will scan you and project you into the screen, with just a few details, the camera will scan your height and length of your limbs to add a custom sized menu around your image in the screen. Reaching out to these bubbles will then open them. Using this format is such a breeze,
