This game manages to capture something close to the full potential of motion control, making player movement a real and meaningful part of the experience. This is handled in ways that no one else seems to have previously imagined, especially because most developers never quite seemed to figure out what to do with Microsoft's motion sensor bar. In Fru, it may take a few puzzles to fully appreciate and understand how it works and what it does, but once you do, you'll likely find yourself giggling at the developers' ingenuity and filled with self-satisfaction if the unique solutions you come up with for the game's often very challenging platformer puzzles.

It's not perfect, though. The nature of the silhouette mechanic puts players with smaller bodies at a disadvantage. They'll need to either move closer to the camera (which could cause sensor issues) or be more precise in their movements. Or they could just change their clothes. Baggy pants and dresses will increase the size of your silhouette, making some areas much easier -- and others much harder. It's worth noting, too, that you'll have a lot less fun and may grow more frustrated if you're lazy and unwilling to do things like lie on the floor or hold crazy yoga-style poses. Still, it's just about the best thing Kinect has seen since Xbox One's launch. If your Kinect has been unplugged and sitting on a shelf for the last couple of years, Fru provides ample reason to pull it down, dust it off, and plug it back in.
