MotionSports is a bit of a mixed bag. The skiing, for instance can be a lot of fun, while the hang gliding can be surprisingly dull. And its hard to get excited about playing "football," when that just means jumping over fabric hurdles or ducking around padded walls. You'll get to do stuff that's more like real football later on, but only after you've played through all the training drill games. The motion controls sometimes work really well and feel completely natural and intuitive; while at other moments they can feel a bit glitchy with slow reaction times. The way the game shoots real photos of you to use on newspapers and magazine covers is fun the first few times, but even that grows old quickly and you may find yourself wishing you could skip past the obligatory photo shoot. Kinect users seeking a fun party sports game should take a look at Kinect Sports before deciding.

Online interaction: The game will take photos of you for fake newspaper or magazine covers that tout your skill as an athlete. These can be shared online via UPlay, an exclusive online community for players of UbiSoft games. You can join and access UPlay via the MotionSports menu. Note: players can potentially do anything in these photos.

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.
