A year on from the launch of Kinect
and the arrival of it's first collection of party games, Kinect Sports
is back to test your fitness and your level of personal shame.
Sporting a decidedly more international assortment of events than its predecessor, Kinect Sports Season Two
serves incremental improvements over the first title while retaining the same frantic, local multiplayer charm. So if you're wondering whether this is worth picking up as a single player game, the answer remains a resounding no - despite additional challenges, single player appeal is so slim, it’s practically ethereal.
But should you be lucky enough to be gifted with real life friends, the vigorous range of motion required for Football (American), Baseball, Golf, Skiing, Tennis and Darts (the group’s single damp squib) make Kinect Sports Season 2
the ideal title for big occasions like Christmases, Thanksgivings, Bar Mitzvahs, Talk like a Pirate Days, etc.
