I loved this game when I was little!

I would definitely recommend this game to young kids and up. The game features all-new adventures from five different Disney Pixar movies: “The Incredibles”, “Ratatouille”, “Toy Story”, “Cars”, and “Up”. It does require a lot of movement and a Kinect Sensor, though (since it’s a Kinect game), like swinging your arms to run and run in place to run even faster, except for “Cars”, where you put your arms out and tilt them left and right to make your car steer. Overall, I think it is a fantastic and addictive game for all ages!

Kids say (2):

Kids can have a terrific time with Kinect Rush, but imprecise controls for running and turning can create some frustrating moments where kids may have trouble making their onscreen avatar do exactly what they want. Turning around can be particularly tricky. Still, the pleasure kids can experience by jumping into familiar environments filled with recognizable personalities is a real plus. And the ability for a parent, friend, or sibling to jump in and join in the fun, makes the games a blast in multiplayer.

The entire game (minus the extras) is rather short, clocking in at just about three hours. Score-based medals and unlockable features offer some replay value, but the core experience isn’t particularly long. And while multiplayer makes the game more social, the activities are designed such that players play mostly in parallel, with few opportunities for true cooperation. It's polished, nice to look at, and fun (especially for younger kids), but there’s also plenty of room for improvement.
