Get Kinected

KINETICMALS brings a virtual pet into your living room, enabling you to play with one of 40 cutesy animals. Looking a lot like the PS3's EyePet, it has bags of charm.

KINECT SPORTS resembles a smart descendant of Wii Sports, offering six games in one, with choices including football, bowling, boxing and track and field.

KINECT ADVENTURES promises up to 20 fairly simple mini-games, including riding a raft down river rapids and ducking and diving on a railway trolley. Variety and novelty in one package.

KINECT JOY RIDE lets you drive a car by holding out your hands as if gripping a wheel. With loose, arcade handling and an over-the-top style, it's knockabout fun.

DANCE CENTRAL looks the best of the bunch from a visual perspective, from the people who originally brought us Guitar Hero. It's a classy-looking music rhythm game where you must pull off the fancy dance moves to win a contest. Not for those with two left feet, however.

YOUR SHAPE takes its cues from Wii Fit and EA Sports Active, measuring you up at a glance and then devising fitness routines to follow. With soothing white backgrounds and calming music, it unashamedly pitches for the female vote.
