Dan: The pack-in game that comes in the Kinect box, this is not nearly as great an introduction to the technology as Wii Sports was. The games themselves run the gamut from mildly interesting to mediocre, but the biggest problem was having to go through a lengthy setup process each time you launch the game, which also highlights the unrealistic space requirements.
Scott: Though the raft-ride part of Kinect Adventures you may have seen in ads and E3 videos is somewhat entertaining, a lot of the rest of the game feels a bit haphazard. Some of the minigames in this compilation are like interactive theme-park rides, others are more like carnival games. It's not bad at all for a free game, but it doesn't seem like as much of a keeper--or as much of a multiplayer game--as Wii Sports was.
