Lisa from Mommy and Me Giveaways was recently sent a 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect, with the games “Kinect Adventures” and “Child of Eden” for review. Check out her full review of this Xbox 360 Kinect Bundle.
Now for the games:
Kinect Adventures! is a full-featured Kinect game where you and your friends will explore the world – and beyond – through 20 active adventures to achieve the ultimate reward: Expert Adventurer status! Jump, duck and dodge your way through roaring rapids and challenging obstacle courses. Use your skills to save a leaky underwater laboratory. Get creative by showing off and sharing your accomplishments online with Photo Moments and Living Statues. The spirit of adventure awaits!
I had a lot of fun playing Kinect Adventures! The Kinect is really easy to use, and you don’t have to bother with the controller at all while using Kinect. It took her a little while to get used to how she needed to move to control the game, but once she got the hang of it, it was a lot of fun and really easy to do! You can earn Awards in Kinect Adventures which gets you stuff for your Avatar too!
Child of Eden: Winner of 9 awards at E3 for innovative graphics, music, and gameplay. Child of Eden is the “multi-sensory shooter” that will send players diving into a visual matrix of synchronized music and mind-blowing visuals. It will usher forth yet another landmark game experience from the mind of renowned game designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi.
The graphics are just amazing and make this game a lot of fun! The Kinect we are giving away comes with a code to redeem to download Child of Eden, it is not an actual disk. That means less games to store and you don’t have to switch which game is in the Xbox when you want to play a different game.
There were also several demos already installed on he Xbox. She tried out some and had a lot of fun with them, but deleted most of them just to clear up some space. The only downside to this Xbox is that a 4GB really isn’t all that much space. You can not download any demos or games, at least not the ones I tried to download, because there isn’t enough space. This doesn’t affect actually buying a game from the store and playing it on the Xbox though. One solution to the lack of space is to get the Xbox Hard Drive which is 320GB and will give you more than enough space.
One lucky winner is going to win a 4GB Xbox 360 and Kinect with the games Kinect Adventures and Child of Eden! This giveaway is open to US only and it ends on December 14, 2012 at 11:59pm EST.
My girls and I have a blast on our Xbox Kinect system. I play Zumba and workout with the kids as my motivation. This is definitely going to put a huge smile on someones face this holiday season!!
