Kinect sports Soccer / football placing shots low?
Hi guys,

Just wondered if people would like to post their tips on the kinect sports soccer.

My tip for free kicks is to cross kicking leg behind standing leg and then bring back around to take the bending free kicks like Beckham. My other tip is for the shooting game with the crosses coming in is step back when boots are coming to dodge them.

My real main question is though, (1) how do you place your shots in the bottom corners. I've tried standing over my virtual ball when kicking and putting laces through the ball, kicking softer and no luck with either. I know you can kick low as someone online placed 3 consecutive shots in bottom corners against me.

Another question (2) - how do you tackle or do slide tackles. Don't think this is possible, but just thought I'd confirm this and its just the computer that does that (in stupid positions like when the player is in the box but near the goal line and needs a miracle to score and my player tackles and gives a penalty putting them centrally. grrrr)

(3) Any tips for directing headers?

I'm new to the Xbox 360 scene, so don't know anyone on Xbox live yet. So please add me (Gamertag:ywith), as would like to have someone to play kinect games and other xbox 360 games with at Christmas.

Im asking how to kick ball along the ground to score a goal at ankle height rather than up in the air and it go in the net at head height.

I tried for half an hour yesterday and can't figured it out, I searched on the web and couldn't find anything. But i will find it...

i guy wrote at head level or so do a kicking motion above your waist. this should do a bycicle kick, LOL (i tried but as i thought it didn't worked)

RE: Kinect sports Soccer / football placing shots low?
I've gotten pretty good with headers, and the key is placement... you actually do have to jump, and you need to get your character's head in place with the correct part of the ball to direct it, as you would in real life. So for example, if your striker is facing the goal and a cross comes in from right to left and you want to direct a header to the left, you'll need to aim for the right half of the ball (get your character's head on that part of the ball).

Same thing goes pretty much for crosses to your feet. The target game is really good for working in these skills. At first the aiming seems arbitrary, but after a few minutes in that target game, you'll start to figure it out.

As for placing regular shots, though, I'm clueless. Although, I did seem to figure out how to do a chip shot. Basically, it's also like real life. Just kick short into the ground with no follow through.
