Family fun titles are the heart and soul of Kinect's early lineup. Game Party in Motion, on the surface, seems to have the right elements to fit in with this, gathering some arcade and boardwalk favorites -- but once you start playing, you'll realize exactly how lousy it is. It has some of the worst controls of any Kinect title, making it impossible to fully enjoy the games. And rather than consistently relying on people's natural movements (such as with billiards, where virtually everyone knows how to mimic a shot), it requires an elaborate series of motions that don't make sense. The menus give you no sense of where your hand is on the screen, which can make it hard to navigate. This is one Kinect title you'll want to avoid.
