When you initially fire up the game youíll be asked to create a champion. Kinect scans your face and body and transforms your champion into a digitalized likeness of your true self only looking more like a super hero. The technology works really great and the only work youíll have to do is move your face around a little and select your gender. Once the champion is created you can then tweak certain aspects that give you an even better representation of your real life image.
Next up youíll be introduced to Coach who will train you for each sport showing you the ropes and giving you some pointers. Youíll train and compete in six different sports: Wake Racing, Rock Climbing, Target Shooting, Soccer, Bowling and Tennis. Everyone will definitely have their favorite sport they like to play and youíll be able to compete in those sports in various ways.
As you complete your training youíll also be able to play through the story mode. The story mode familiarizes you with the 3 different teams represented in the game and youíll have the opportunity to join one of those factions later in the game. The story mode includes various competitions in each sport that will net you XP and credits but you can also play Quick Play for any of the sports as well. You can also try out suggested events and challenge or compete against Rivals.
My favorite sport to play in the game is bowling and I have to say that I found it a bit too easy once I learned how to throw a hook. My real life average sits right around 200 so this game definitely helps my confidence level. But I also enjoyed playing the other sports as well and I have to say my least favorite sport was Tennis and this is actually the only time I experienced wonky Kinect issues as well as unresponsive moments here and there. Honestly there is a game for everyone in KSR.
