Kinect Sports: Season Two doesn’t shine as an example of innovation, but Microsoft’s latest sports compilation is polished, well made, and, most importantly, fun. Swinging for the bleachers and then running in place to get to first base in baseball is both satisfying and tiring, and the sense of speed as we crouch and lean left and right to fly through slalom gates in skiing is intense. Games that require more subtle movements can be a little frustrating sometimes -- the targeting reticule in darts sometimes jumps around, and it’s too easy to put too much power into a swing in golf -- but patience and a willingness to experiment with subtle changes in stance and physical movements usually pays off.

Perhaps most importantly, Kinect Sports: Season Two is just as much of a workout as the original. Play for two hours and you’ll burn off a couple hundred calories and wake up with stiff muscles in the morning. It should act as a fun and healthy way for families to spend active days indoors when the weather isn't cooperating.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
