Kinect Adventures And River Rage Revisited

Over this past weekend, I had some family come out to visit. After some tasty grilling and a few hours in the sun, the energy level was starting to plumet. Fortunately, my two year old daughter had the solution -- "Rafting Game! Rafting Game!" she shouted referring to the River Rage game in Xbox Kinect's Adventures game.

Being the Daddy's Girl that she is, I was quick to comply. It was an instant success. Even at only 2 1/2 years old, my daughter is able to connect her physical motions with what is happening on the screen. She doesn't quite get all the nuances of the game, but she knows that if she keeps jumping constantly, the characters on screen will react accordingly. The two-player mode really engages even more people at a time and creates a very playful cooperative spirit -- much better than any silly boardgames could accomplish. The motions are easy for anyone to grasp immediately, but @ and I managed to set the high score for the day.

The other Adventure games are still a bit more stagnant in comparison to the River Rage mini game, but @ managed to show off some exceptional Bubble Popping skillz (apparently skills she honed at her local Costco -- I wish I had video evidence to support this).

It was easy to dismiss Kinect Adventures as the "bundle game" that comes with Kinect, but it's appeal to a WIDE range of ages makes it a new party favorite.
