The demo is out now on Xbox Live...so has anyone tried it? Initially I was content on writing off this game, but after deciding to download the demo during a spout of boredom, I was actually quite surprised at how competently it controls and plays, especially for a Kinect "adventure style" game. The others I've tried (like Haunt, Rise of Nightmares), have been, well, nightmares to control properly and have just left me turning off the console after battling with trying to navigate and successfully play the game. But this is one of the few games where I can safely say the Kinect controls just work. It's not 100% perfect, but it's got to a point where control frustrations aren't there enough to detract from the experience like other titles I've tried.
I wasn't that interested in buying it, but after playing the demo, and with the the fact that you can actually play it sitting down... I might actually buy it now. The graphics aren't terrible, and it was legitimately fun to play, chucking spears around and spawning fireballs in your hand by saying "fireball", though at one point I was saying fireball straight for about two minutes
The main characters voice was a bit... odd though. I think that might be because it just sounds like people I know in real life, and I'm not accustomed to hearing that sort of British accent in games.
