Product Details:

The Gunstringer marries Twisted Pixel's beloved storytelling, characters, and polish with fresh gameplay mechanics. Players can puppeteer a character through a variety of 3D and 2D gameplay styles, controlling every jump and dodge with one hand, while filling enemies with lead using the other. The Gunstringer provides players with new Kinect shooter experiences that have never been seen before.

Game Features

  • Be the puppet master with Kinect, and move the Gunstringer through his adventures as if you were actually controlling a marionette.
  • The Gunstringer takes standard solo platforming and shooting mechanics and evolves them for fun competitive action.
  • With a full suite of collectables, unlockables, abilities, rewards and more, there's always a reason to play an encore performance!
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Motion Control REAL Game A friend got this with his Kinect Bundle some time ago, we tried it recently and put a good few hours on it having a great time. The puppet character and script are quite humorous and the animation style fits the theme well. This on rail type gameplay works VERY well with the motion sensing Kinect, and where hiccups do occur they are generally overshadowed. The gameplay overall can teach its remote control counterparts a thing or two, but there are still points that feel slow or just not connected. The difficulty scales well and there are big differences in the difficulty options themselves. You will also find there are alot of easter egg style unlockables and achievements to be found. Overall, when looking for a game to be played on the Kinect that is an alternative to the more traditional stuff, this one would be a well executed choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hardcore view I would say that i am a hardcore gamer, so when i was given this gift for Christmas with kinect i was little put off by it. However, The Gunstringer is the best game for kinect, it is amusing and it is so cash. Buy this game if you want to know what a good kinect game is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from something to do. i got the downloaded version because it came with my kinect and i thought it was going to be stupid. but i played it and i was actually amused by how it was played. i wanted to play a game that was simple and i didnt have to do alot of moving around. i also wanted a game with a plot. i didnt beat the game yet. i dont know when i will haha. but i will get to it when i have shoulders of an mma fighter lol. but i would say when the price gets cheaper to get this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The word "Epic" has been officially overused... It's ok...I guess. My kids like it better than I do, which is why my rating may seem higher than my written opinion of it. First of all...I have some bad shoulders, so holding my arm straight out from my body constantly isn't really that fun...secondly...i'd rather actually aim and fire the gun myself for each target, rather than simply passing over six of them with a cursor, and making a motion, and having all the work done for me...this game is far too easy for an adult, and somewhat redundant...The concept was very cool, and the graphics entertaining and funny...not a flop, but I wouldn't call it great by any means.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hate overusing the word but this is epic! The game is AWESOME. Controls: very easy. Move one hand to jump and move around. The other aims your gun. Nothing else except the occasional punch or slap. And it works good even in kind of crowded areas. Gameplay: Awesome. Shoot shoot punch shoot! Shoot skelecton guys, a weirdo inflatable tube guy, and other characters (including cows made of beer cans.) It's fun, simple, and at times, funny. Plus you can earn most of the achievements really easily!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RDR for Kids In my mind this game id rdr for kids and kinect. i personally like gun rdr and its brother rdr (red dead revolver and read dead redemption) a lot better but the gunstringer is for kinect which i like but unlike gun and the rdr brothers sadly its not free roam. i know rdr (revolver isnt a free roam but in my mind its just as good as a free roam) anyway back to the review the gunstringer is very fun its awesome with fruit ninja but the gunstringer has s*xual themes but not that bad ( someone is refered to as madam) the violence isnt bad at all the drug side is you shoot beer bottles (note i havnt beaten the game) and thats pretty much it so if your thinking of getting it its a mistake you havnt already so quit reading reviews and GO GET IT
