by sykoe360 AWESOME!!!
Okay, this game is going to be awesome. It's a kinect game you can fight with. I can't wait till they come out with some shooters, but this is good for now. The better thing about this is that If you used an Xbox 360 controller, it would get kinda boring in my opinion. But when you're doing the action, I won't be able to stop. And I would guess you could loose at least a few pounds from it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by arshapro This game is awesome if you practice the tutorial
It took me five or six sessions to get to know the game. I can only do about an hour a session - too tiring to do it much longer. Now, I am working my way up the world leaderboards. So much fun, such a great workout. You must practice the tutorial though. AND you must only do moves from the correct distance (no elbows from long distance...) Once you get good enough, you will start to actually learn different fighting strategies for different fighters. If you don't put the time into practicing the tutorial - forget it - you will be terrible at this game and will be VERY frustrated. I put on workout clothes before I play this game and then take a shower when I'm done and I've done my workout for the day and hopefully make some progress on the leaderboards! Oh, and gamestop should have a different category for "fitness gamers". This game is awesome for "fitness gamers" - I had to choose "party gamers". It really gets you out of your own head and into a game like a real sport.
Rated 1 out of 10 by SRTspeed DO NOT BUY!! Not fun at all!
This game is horrible!! I have trained in martial arts for over 20 years and I thought this game would be awesome. Little did I know you have to do moves programmed into the game and sometimes it will not read your moves. You have to stand feet shoulder width apart with your arms bent at the elbows the wole time. If you try to get into a fighting stance, which most people will do, it won't read the moves right, so a punch becomes a headbutt or an elbow. It is not comfortable to try and do the moves as the training shows from this position. I move fast because of my training and when I tried this game I literally had to slow down everything to a snail pace. For those who want an interactive firght game this is not it. The people that rate this game a 10 are markerters who want to sell the game and nothing more because I could fill a room up with people that hate this game and I did. If you don't believe me rent it and then thank me later for saving you $60.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Captrage It isn't as good as you'd think!
OK, I was really looking forward to this game. I got the Kinect at midnight on the 3rd, brought it home and got it all set up. The first thing I tried was the Kinect Adventures, which is really put together well. It gave me a taste of what Kinect is going to be like. So after getting used to it, I put in "Fighters Uncaged" it's non responsive compared to Kinect Adventures, it won't throw punches when you want, won't block, and won't kick when you do. I was kicking, and my character either head butted air or punched wildly. My suggestion for this game... put the fighters back in the cage, box them up, and ship them elsewhere! Don't throw you money away like I did, get something more diverse that has more options and game variations. The potential for this game is there, but it just doesn't seemed finished. One other note, it locked up twice between fights. I'm playing on an XBox with the Jasper processor so it isn't my machine, it's the software.

This game is so bad, I created this account just to warn people not to waste your money. One of the other reviews here was dead on in saying that this particular game is terrible at responding to your actual movements, I was crouching practically to the floor and it would only intermittently acknowledge that i was ducking so the moves associated with the crouching were a big no can do in addition to the other moves being wildly inaccurate to what my motions were. even if it had been responding correctly, anyone who knows anything about real fighting would not like it, you throw your hand out to your side to represent a spinning backfist? lame, also, it doesn't like your feet to be in a left or right lead stance, it just wants your feet facing straight toward the tv evenly spaced with no lead foot, i got the game last night and will be trading it in today

I saw the trailer for this game and got really excited. Then later, I bumped into an individual who actually worked in the game industry (wont be specific) and they told me the game was REALLY bad. So I kinda leaned away from getting it. Lo and behold, it popped up on Christmas. I can actually say that this is the first kinect game (i have sonic, and kinect adventures) that i am actually feeling like i cant wait to get back home and play again. Yes, there are times where this is a little unresponsive, but if you think about it, all games range from a little unresponsive to fully unresponsive (lets be truthful, Gears of war is a little stiff at times even though its an excellent game). Here is the way that I have looked at this game and come to enjoy it. This like any other game is a GAME. You cant go in just swinging and flailing your arms and legs (not in a real fight either) and expecting this to be great just like when playing street figher 4 you can just go in mashing buttons. PLAY THE TUTORIAL to see how to do the moves and then this game is alot more enjoyable. Yes, it still is a little unresponsive, but you will experience alot more fun this way.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Sage This game is awful!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game is a steaming pile of.... well you know.
I bought this game thinking it might be a fun way to get in a workout and get out some aggression at the same time, boy was I wrong! To start with it is not free play, there is a specific set of moves that you must use most of which the Kinect doesn't recognize, you have to stand with your feet square to the television which even people who have never been in an actual fight will find uncomfortable and the system expects you to stand perfectly still except when executing an assigned move! I once owned the intrepid Activision Octagon for the Sega Genesis, that was a more pleasant experience. I sincerely hope that the Kinect can do better than this or I just wasted a load of money on another big technological failure.

It's so unfortunate that Fighters Uncaged turned out to be this bad and unresponsive. It was such an amazing idea for the Kinect (or any motion control console.)
Although it does work sometimes, those moments are very few in numbers. But again, when Fighters Uncaged is working the way you want it to work, it's actually kind of fun and thrilling.
The sad reality is that nearly 90% of the time you're going to be frustrated when you clearly land perfect blows on your opponent, and for some reason the game just doesn't recognize it. A lot more time should have been spent to polish this game.

I got the kinect and a few games for christmas. When I started it up the graphics were awesome and I was hoping that it was going to be really fun. I was very disappointed. Unless you do the exact move it wants you to do it doesn't work. The kinect hardly even picked up anything I was doing even though it had just been working perfectly with kinect adventures. You also have to go through a ton of stupid training before you can actually play the game.
Rated 4 out of 10 by JosH2o Not as good as I hoped....
First off, I'd like to point out that, while this game let me down, it has some good points. For instance, it has some serious assistance when performing high-kicks and sweeps and such. However, the enemies are pretty much all the same, the voice-overs are meant to be serious but are so poor that they're laughable. It gets old pretty quick. The control of the character was quite lacking as far as basic moves goes. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're a die-hard fighting game fan.
