This game is so funny. For sure it's not a deep game or something like that, but if you want to have a great time, almost for free, specially with your kids, just go for it! If you are a Marcial artist, you are gonna love it too, because you can practice and test your reflex. As a Ninjutsu fighter, I enjoyed it so much.
really? 5 minutes of terrible puns and adjectives? I'm wondering if you could actually have a review longer than 1 minute without using a dictionary/thesaurus to find all possible synonyms for each word you say.
"But any way you slice it (...)" I see what you did there. One thing about the game is that it's the most accurate use of Kinect so far. No lag, no misrepresentation of gestures. One may think 'of course, it's just a minigame', but the truth is that you'll be doing a lot of quick gestures at some points and even then the game registers them properly.
@holtrocks You are free to comment on what staff say (for example, "Thumbs up to fructicide!"), but thumbing is reserved for your fellow users.

@Chris_Watters hey how come we can't rate gamespot staff members comments cmon whats up with that? o and random but how do you guys pick who reviews what games?
I don't realistically see myself playing Kinect for any hardcore games. The Wii had its thing going because it worked for its audience. This is just... bad. Microsoft realizes how much worse this can get too, which is why they're pushing Kinect so much. Theres not much in the way of the PS3 Move, so I can't comment on that, but Microsoft needs to pull it together before the worthwhile games make their appearances with Sony and ditch MS.
Come on Microsoft...$10 for this game that I already have on my iPod? You could at the very least add an extra mode or something...
That's the most fruit I have ever seen in my life... Also, I lol at the people complaining about the length of the review. I'd rather have a detailed review than one that slaps a number on it and plainly lists the pros and cons.... but that's just me.
Yeaaa this game shouldn't be more than $5. But I guess if it were a 3DS game, it would be $40 (joking!!!, 3DS is cool).
I also don't like how microsoft is pushing everyone to shoehorn kinect features into every game imaginable. I saw an interview with notch and todd howard and they talked about the fact that Microsoft is the reason why Minecraft for the 360 has awkward kinect controls and how they are pushing kinect for all of their games. I would much rather microsoft focus on getting a couple exclusive games. What do they even have left? Gears, Halo, Fable and Forza? This isn't 2005 Microsoft...having 3 or 4 first party developers and nearly no exclusive third party support isn't going to keep them ahead forever.
Uggg, seriously, i haven't seen a single kinect release that does anything significantly better than even the eye toy for the ps2... This looks exactly like the mini games found in eyetoy play . The tech demos showed some interesting tech (most of which can also be done on webcams (like face tracking, the object capture stuff, etc) but it seems like the only people taking advantage of this tech are the indie developers/hackers. Games like this, where you pay 10 dollars to flail your arms in front of your tv are laughable justifications for a $150 peripheral.
@carolynmichelle Decent review, I guess. A good warning for people, in any case. I'm just a bit surprised you didn't make note of the fact that this could have been an EyeToy game, and we would have been none the wiser. Perhaps this game should have been judged more harshly for being a rehash of a mobile game, as well as bringing nothing new to the table insofar as using the Kinect. Or maybe the score already reflects that. I'm just really disappointed this made it into the Summer of Arcade promotion.
After all the trouble I went to making up the word "fructicide," it didn't even make it into this review?! I do not like them apples.
Anyway you slice it Carol, really? lol Nice review though, definitely overpriced. May be worth $3-5 (maybe).
This looks fruity......sorry for the pun. Why bring a $1 IOS game to a console and charge $10 for it? it doesn't make much sense, greed is all I can say.
The general consensus seems to be that this game is overpriced. It's included for free with "The Gunstringer" so just pick that up (it's going to be $40 for the full DVD game) and you'll get this included.
The review style was great. I really liked the amount of puns that went into this. Made me smile quite a lot.
It's only fun on an Ipod or phone, since you can play it on the bus or w/e, and then put it away. There should be no need for a kinect to play this tbh
Talk about being way too easy on this game. A 6.0 for an overpriced game with no substance what so ever. GS always seems to go easy on gimmicky kinect games. This is a 3.0 or less. Its overpriced and theres literally not much to it....oh and its sold for a buck or two on smartphones and tablets.
Fun review! This actually looks kinda fun. If I had a kinect, I would buy this game. Just cuz u need to buy something for it, otherwise it would be a total waste of money buying the kinect in the first place. Kinda like my PS Move...
wow............your annoying.....sorry though.........gamespot need more better people...........like ign.............but gamespot is still the best spot for games
I don't know if you've noticed, but you're an idiot.
