It's easy to appreciate the creativity that went into crafting Puss in Boots, as well as the clever use of the Kinect full-body motion controls. The ways in which you can dispose of enemies during fights are often hilarious, like triggering a giant fish to fall on one or knocking one headfirst into a rain barrel. And performing such feats is made fun and easy when all you need to do is hop to the side to position the bad guy where you want him and then thrust your foot forward to send him tumbling backward into the trap you've set.

But the game is far from all fighting, which is why it ends up being so enjoyable. You need to tiptoe to sneak past enemies -- and freeze in place when needed, like an impromptu game of "Red Light, Green Light." You need to jump and climb with expert timing through plentiful acrobatic sections. You will have to pull off some lightning quick poses in a dance battle that is so funny, you may end up losing just because you're laughing. All in all, the Kinect controls -- used to great advantage here -- make Puss in Boots a very fun ride.
