Voice-controlled Kinect squad shooter coming soon

Developer Iridium, now a member of ID@XBOX, is behind this game coming out on PC in June, and consoles soon after: http://www.totalxbox.com/72308/there-came-an-echo-unveiled-for-xbox-one-kinect-strategy-starring-wil-wheaton/

I'm of two minds about this. I think it's awesome that Kinect is beginning to be used more in games. If they have problems with it, they can work out the kinks, and make better Kinect games in the future. But on the other hand, is Kinect even accurate enough for a game like this?

Can't wait to see how fun it's going to be!

"Shoot him!" "No, not him the other one you dummy!"

I'm inclined to say "no, Kinect is not precise enough for this."

But, I mean, Siri and Google Now are so good at understanding what I say ... how can Kinect not be? I don't understand.

The commands seem simple enough but that is definately not my kind of game.

All the commands seem more complicated than "Xbox Unsnap" and we all know how well that's picked up...

There will be support for controllers, should the idea of yelling tactics at your TV strike you as sinister.. That's good, in case the Kinect isn't as accurate as I'd hope.

I agree, more options the better, like Crimson Dragon
