Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple Fun The first thing you need to know is that this isn't a serious racing game. It is more of an arcade style, bump, grind, crash and go racer. The controls are entirely kinect driven. Your hands, arms and body drive the car and perform stunts and they are very accurate. There is no eye-candy, so don't expect cutting edge graphics. The sound is well done and fitting of the game. As for the gameplay, it can only be described as pure fun. The controls are easy to use and very simple. Just steer with your hands and extend your arms for a boost! Even stunts are pretty simple to figure out, just by jumping around in front of the kinect! This game is good for casual gamers and kids. Simple controls and fun gameplay make this a must have for anyone with a kinect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pure Racing Experience!!!!!!!!!! KICK A** Great Game One of my favorites for Kinect. It's like Crash tag team racing and Mod Nation Racers had a child with Mario Kart. :D Although it did Lag a little. Especially the Steering. I would make a SUPER HARD turn to the right and he'd turn left instead and hit the wall. sometimes it would turn while im going straight. but bottom line, you would have to have your arms in the perfect postion to turn and steer right. i just wish i could sit down and play. plus they should have added a brake and a reverse. as well as a MUCH WIDER variety of cars and more customizing features for your car including stuff like stickers and vynils, performance upgrades and more car models and styles and colors. They also could've added more levels or so or more game modes. Well, other than that stuff I personally Love the game. I would consider getting it if i were you. I hope they come out with a second one and so on. though kinect needs alot of improvements and so do the games. but i cant wait for forza 4. if you have floppy arms like me it might be harder to steer. But just make sure you have enough space for your arms and for the game mode "trick race" (which wasn't that good to me due to not picking up the positions i did). But if you want a good racing game GET THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell friends about it. It's good for the Family to play. <3 the moves you can do in a race. but the weapons could have been improved. P.S to kinect and microsoft studios, I dont mean to sound like a lazy bum, but i know there are a lot of people like me who would prefer to sit and play certain games that dont necessarily only require standing up such as this one (for every mode except "trick race") but how about you have the kinect sensor read your body while you're sitting? :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mario Kart for the Kinect! Finally XBOX owners get the fun and goofy antics that Nintendo owners have been getting for years!!! I just wish I could sit down and play this. After a while standing really starts to hurt my feet.
