I’ve been anxiously awaiting for Kung-Fu Live to finally hit the PlayStation Store. After the hectic holidays and my PS3 issue .. I finally got my hands on this unique PlayStation Eye motion game.
The PlayStation Eye has been around since October 2007 and it took this long to come out with a killer PlayStation Eye motion game. It was worth the wait too!
It’s also a great workout believe it or not. I was sore for a couple days after. Sadly I didn’t gain any new Kung Fu powers that I could use in the real world …. yet. Mwhahahaha.
The guys over at Virtual Air Guitar Company use FreeMotion Technology to track your movements, remove the background and place you right inside the game. It’s quite an experience to see yourself moving inside of a game world. It’s fun to watch your friends and family try it for the first time. They all picked it up really quickly too.Is it worth the $14.99 price tag? Absolutely without a doubt, as long as you have the space to play it, decent lighting and have clothes that will stand out against your background. I had a lot of fun playing it and it’s something that I will show off to others that come over.
The animated story comics really adds the finishing touch to the game and completes the whole comic book feel. Which is perfect format for a Kung Fu game. Even the menus are inside a comic book.
This is hands down the best PlayStation Eye game to date! There are not very many PlayStation Eye games being made anymore which is a shame. Hopefully more great ones come out in the future. If you have any friends that have a XBox 360 Kinect, show them this game.Check out the full review with photos and video at :
