It is a collection of thirteen sporting games including football, skiing, golf, beach volleyball, tennis, boxing, bowling, basketball, table tennis, baseball, track and field, darts and soccer. Just stand in front of the Kinect sensor and play by mimicking actions performed in real-life sports. The player's gestures and body movements are tracked and translated into in-game actions. With the party play mode, accommodate more players including your friends and family into the game and have fun. Simply kick, throw and run, all using your body as the controller - bundled with both exercise and enjoyment. At the end of each game, a video compilation of your best shots are shown, and these clips can be uploaded to the KinectShare website where they can be downloaded or shared directly in your social networking sites.
This Microsoft Kinect Sports comes in a pack of two CDs and also includes 5 game add-on packs. The add-on pack includes additional golf holes, night ski runs and challenges for all sports from Kinect Season Two. All the thirteen sports require a different interaction with the controller, be it pitching the ball down field to score a touchdown in baseball, swinging big in golf, hurtling a bowling ball or hitting the ball back to the other end of the court in tennis. The games are easy to adjust and challenging enough to keep both our body and mind busy. With advanced technology and voice control commands, playing the games is easy and refreshing. You can use voice commands to scroll through the menus, hike the ball in football, change the golf clubs, call an objection in tennis and much more. With the outstretched palm menu control option, you can relaxedly sit down and navigate with your voice. Take part in any number of challenging mini-games with plenty of target practice that can be found in sports like golf and tennis. It allows you to aim the ball at the mascot's heads, and the darts give some simple and satisfying arithmetic challenges. The presentation is smooth with sharp and colourful visuals and good sound effects.
