Information Kung Fu Panda 2: Positive Previews!
Here are 2 positive previews for Kung Fu Panda 2, the second link is particularly in-depth. It sounds pretty cool and according to the previews Kinect works perfectly! Big Grin (Except for possibly a noodle minigame that doesn't quite work as well according to the 2nd preview.)

Thanks Corellian!

Very good news, so now with this, along with the gameplay from PowerUP heroes, it seems that we will have 2 more succesfull kinect titles Big Grin

RE: Kung Fu Panda 2: Positive Previews!
I Just got it! I played half an hour and my first impressions are good:

-The kinect utilisation is perfect (so far) and the menu is well done!
-There is a (small) storyline, woohoo!
-There is a good amount of different movements, but there is no real fight.
-Clearly a game for family and younger ones.
-The only drawback so far are the loading times, but you get some cool cinematics in return.

More to come in a review...

Gamespot apparently finds the controls for the game terrible. I don't know if this was just them (as it seems like for many kinect games) or is it a legitimate concern for the game?

Gamespot also didn't set up their Kinect properly when they first got it and claim that Michael Jackson: The Experience has "significant lag" (total lie) so I don't trust them. I'll wait for other reviews.

What do you mean "no real fight"? I thought this was mainly a fighting game? That doesn't sound good, lol!

I saw that review and I don't agree, I didn't have any problems with the controls (I had a small update at start). I read all their kinect games reviews and they're saying that for half of them, so maybe their kinect setup isn't right(check this)...Anyway I feel that gamespot do reviews as core gamer and I do as kinect gamer Wink

When you start a fight you are free to choose a move, but after the first attack sequence (ennemies only try to dodge your attack), you are now in a defense sequence in which you have to follow the blocking moves that the game tells you to do, if you blocked well, then you have to choose a final moves (a choice of 2 or 3) that Po will do to knockdown the ennemies.

That pic was IGN, this is an example of Gamespot, check out the calibration section, lol!:



So Kung Fu Panda 2 is more like a turn based RPG as far as combat goes? Undecided

"My legs have broken ankles and I don't know why" C'MON!!!!!!!

So yes for KFP2 (hmm this look more like PFK than Kung Fu Panda, lol), but sometimes you can throw what you want. I will test it more tomorrow...

Wow! The guy complains that his legs aren't tracked well, but then when you look at the camera you can clearly see that it's set up to only track his upper body. Clearly they need set up their kinect properly.

Well, I think you should rent it first. This game is great but just like Carnival Games, it have a poor replayability. If you have childrens, you may buy it, but it's a little pricey.
