A new controller demands a sport compilation even if that controller is Kinect for the Xbox 360. The Kinect controller is, after all, the gamer's entire body.
Kinect Sports is Rare and Microsoft's own sports compilation for the console and the controller. It comes with a variety of sports for single and multiplayer activities.
The six sports involved are:
Ten-pin Bowling using a first-person view can be played in single or two-player sessions and includes challenges other than the standard bowling.
Boxing: Fight three-round matches again in one or two-player modes. This uses local split-screen and Xbox Live.
Track and field: This has mutiple disciplines includng: Hurdles, Sprint, Javelin, Discus Throw and Long Jump played out in the “Flame Stadium”. Gamers can even play it as a full pentathlon.
Table Tennis: Yes, ping-pong in singles or doubles modes. There are also challenge modes to be competed in.
Football: Or 'Soccer'... play against the Xbox 360 on your own or with another player or take part in skills-based challenges.
Volleyball: Once again, single or multi-play against the AI or against a pal.
All of the events can be be played out on Xbox Live. They also feature the ability for multiple players to drop in and out of each activity. With Xbox Avatars featuring heavily there is also plenty of personalisation possible.
