Fun for the family!

Wow! Me and my kids think this game is great, they play it as much as I let them, and constantly like to compete for eachother's highscores! Me and my husband like to play as well because of the simple, yet dynamic and fun controls! My youngest boy, age 9; likes to say that the fruit are really fun to slice, kind of like slicing open a pig or a human body in some of his other games! Great game for the whole family to enjoy!

Is It Any Good?

FRUIT NINJA KINECT is a remake of a game that has already proven itself a hit in video arcades and on mobile phones. What's unique about this version is it gives it a complete full-body experience. Players have to move their arms with speed and accuracy to be able to slash all the fruit that appears on the screen; it's even possible to get some of the low-flying fruit with a well-defined kick.

There is not a lot of depth to this game by any stretch, but it certainly provides bursts of fun and enjoyment for players, especially when they're playing with friends. It is a good, solid title to add to the Kinect's already extensive library of engaging casual games.
