    ----------------------------------- [ XBOX 360 ]-------------------------------
    Kinect Sports is a game that was made Kinect for the XBOX 360 and I'm not 
    surprised that it is a possible jab towards Nintendo Wii who's free game is 
    also a sports game called Wii Sports. Instead of using a controller to play, 
    you use your body to play the game which I find is dope. Just be sure the 
    Kinect syncs with your body right. For the record, Sony did the same thing with
    Sports Championship using The Move + Eye Toy.

    Okay folks, put down them damn controllers and get in front of the Kinect and
    be ready to play as yourself (I swear that should have been the slogan for
    the Kinect). That's right, you are the controller this time around and whatever
    you do, your avatar will mirror. Kinect Sports is here to work you into athletic
    There are 6 major games included in Kinect Sports:
    Soccer (Called Football)
    Beach Volleyball
    Table Tennis
    Track and Field
    Track and Field is broken into five categories (six if you include pentahlon):
    Hurdles, Sprint, Javelin, Discus Throw, and Long Jump.
    There is also downloadable content which are enhancements of the above sports.
    Minigames are playable as well for most sports.
    Hold your hand forward and use it as a cursor.
    Raise your arms above your head to begin all games.
    When a game is finished, the player will level up or get in the process of
    doing so. Also, the game will also show how the actual player (real world that
    is) looked like while playing the game. Other words, the player gets to see how
    much of a fool he or she makes out him or herself.
    The only sport where one gets a strike and has nothing to do with baseball. In
    fact, getting a strike is the best thing to happen to you. The ultimate goal in
    bowling is to knock down all ten pins in one shot.
    Choose to play against the computer or up to four players. The two player one
    can also be done over XBOX Live.
    You start by sticking your arm out to the left or right (whatever hand you want
    to bowl with) to grab a ball, your best shot at getting a strike is to aim for
    the center of the lane. It will not always work but most strikes are gotten
    this way. The arrows indicate the general direction might travel before you
    throw it. When ready, tilt your arm back and throw it forward. If you fail to
    get a strike, you can go for a spare (knock the all the remaining pins down on
    the second try).
    There are 10 frames. You get two tries each frame to knock all the pins down. I
    already explained the strikes and spares concept. If you fail to knock them all
    down in two tries then your frame only counts the number of pins knocked down
    as your score for that frame. If you get a spare, you score 10 points plus the
    value of the first roll in the next frame. So a Spare followed by a 9 on the
    first roll is 19 but a strike makes it worth 20. Strikes are worth 10 points
    plus your next two rolls so you can get uo to 30 points a strike. This is why
    a perfect game is called a 300. The 10th (final) frame is split into three
    tries and up to this point you got on the first try. In order to count it in
    full, two bonus tries. Same concept with a spare on the final frame. The bonus
    try is to get the value of the spare. Gutter ball are worth nothing. So are the
    balls that hit the back without touching a pin.
    #Hit em' wit a left. Hit em' wit a right. Put em' up ***** cuz' we gonna have a
    fight. I hit ya with jab and I hit ya with a hook. Now go to the mirror and
    see how ya look. Ya thought ya was cool cuz' all ya wore was silk. Now my lil'
    two fists will make ya drink ya momma's milk. 1-2-3-4-5 stay down and stay 
    alive. 6-7-8-9-10. I win.#
    The task at hand is to defeat your opponet either by Knock Out or by Decision.
    Choose to play against a computer opponent or another player on XBOX Live or on
    the Kinect where both players share a half of the Kinect's Range. You are given
    a tutorial on how to play but you can drag your hand over to the skip icon to 
    move forward.
    After you raise your arms above your head, you are ready to fight. The game is
    played from behind your character. Punch high to hit the opponent in the face
    and punch low to hit the opponent in the gut. There are also the uppercut which
    you punch in an upward motion and a haymaker where you hold your arm to the
    side and swing at the opponent (in other words you are using a hook shot motion
    to attack).
    When one fighter gets damaged, his or her health meter can restore itself as
    long as no further damage is taken within a second. So that means if you are on
    offense, keep attacking the opponent while he or she is still off-balance to
    increase the damage. On defense, hold your hands close to your body and raise
    or lower them to block incoming punches. If you get knocked down, you can get
    back up by punching the stars.
    Blocking is real crucial. Not only do you use it to protect yourself from hits
    but you can use it to make your punches more powerful. Block the punch, so you
    can store a power punch. You can store up to three levels then swing with all
    your might for maximum damage. 
    If a fighter goes down three times in a fight then it's labeled a TKO. If the
    fighter fails to get up at the count of 10 or is so hell bent out of shape then
    it's a KO. After all rounds are over, the one who dealt the most damage is the
    winner by decision.
    This game is downright stupid. I'm not dissing the game soccer itself as I am
    a fan but Kinect Soccer sucks. You can play against the computer, or with a 2nd
    player in co-op mode, or play against the opponent over XBOX Live as it would
    be too complicated to do a 2-player vs. game on the console.
    You play one five-minute period. Rather than dribble the ball down the field
    and play some real soccer, you are stuck playing pass the hot potato around. On
    offense, you will see arrows point in the possible directions to pass to. Try
    to pass to a teammate that is being unguarded or it will be intercepted by the
    opponent. It's even a good pass if you make the pass ahead of the teammate so
    they can meet the ball at its destination. When within shooting range, kick the
    ball at an angle where the goalie can't stop the ball. Most of the times, the
    ball will bounce off the CPU goalie's hand and into the goal. 
    On defense, against the computer you got a total advantage. There is a gray
    line that indicates where their pass is going to go. All you have to do is step
    on the line to intercept the ball and be back on offense. If the opponent is
    within shooting range, there is an indicator to show where the ball will go and
    you can block it.
    If the ball goes out of bounds, the opposing team will inbound it and if the
    ball goes out behind the goal post via the defending player (goes off the hand
    of the goalie), the offensive team performs what is called a Corner Kick. This
    provides the player a chance to perform a header where the shot on goal is done
    using their head. 
    After time runs out, the game runs on extra time but I doubt it is really even
    necessary since I haven't seen any injuries occur.
    #Let's hit the beach and have fun. Where everybody goes just to lay in the sun.
    Where children run and play in the sand. Where the ocean meets land. Amidst all
    this, people are having a ball because going on is a 2 on 2 game of Beach
    Choose to play against the computer with a CPU-controlled partner or you can
    go at with another player against the computer or if you have XBOX Live, you
    can face each other similar to the 1-player game with the partner controlled by
    the CPU. 
    Your CPU partner, thank goodness is a valuable asset as it is good at going
    after shots that you think you might miss. But don't rely to much on it though
    as it is not totally flawless.
    Just like regular volleyball, there is a serve to start a game, so toss a ball
    into the air and swat at it to the other side of the net. Offense will perform
    a hit, followed by a lift, and then the spike. During the spike, the defense
    has a chance to block it. If the ball touches the ground while inbounds, the
    offensive team is awarded a point but if the ball went out of bounds or didn't
    clear the net, then the defense is awarded the point instead. The first team to
    7 is the winner but there is a catch. The winning side must win by two or more
    points so if both sides have 6, then the winner is the one who gets 8 while the
    other team still has 6. That means if the opponent gets 7, the winner must get
    9 and so forth.
    This is another game that everyone has played at least once in their lives. It
    is a game of Table Tennis also known as Ping Pong. This is the sport that even
    inspired the arcade game, Pong.
    Choose to go against the computer or against another opponent via XBOX Live.
    Start the game by holding your hand to the left or right depending on your
    dominant hand. The dominant hand is what you will hit the ball with and the
    other hand is what you will use to toss the ball up to serve with. The first
    person to reach 11 points is the winner. As with Beach Volleyball, the winner
    but beat the opponent by 2 points. If both opponents are tied at 10, a Deuce
    is declared and the first to get a 2 point advantage wins.
    When the ball is in play, swat at the ball normally if the ball is on your
    dominant side and if it is on your opposite hand side, use a backhand to hit
    the ball. If you hit the ball hard enough, you can smash the ball and it will
    make the opponent stuggle to hit the ball. If the ball goes out of bounds after
    hitting the opponents side of the net, you get the point. But if it fails to
    hit the other side before going out or if it hits the net ends up back on your
    side then the opponent scores.
    You go through a pentathlon but you can tackle each individual event as a
    This is a 100-meter dash. You can piss off your opponents by flailing your arms 
    around and here a lot of funny comments from them before the match starts. You 
    and a second player can stand side by side and play. When the gun goes off, run
    in place as fast as you can to try to get first place.
    Choose your dominant hand then hold back as if gearing up to throw the javelin.
    Wait until you are in the green area, and heave the javelin forward before you
    step over the line or it is a foul. If your throwing technique is perfect then
    you will have a good throw. It all depends on timing and angle of the throw.
    You got three chances to make an impression here.
    Discus Throw
    Pick your dominant hand and then reach back and toss the discus forward. If you
    get a good enough angle, you can get a far throw. You have three tries to win.
    Long Jump
    Run in place to get up to speed then when you reach the line, jump into the air
    without going over or it will be a foul. All you got to do is jump straight up
    and the game will do the rest. You must time it good because that will decide
    if you do a long jump or a horrible jump. The distance is measure by the back
    point of the landing spot. You are given three tries.
    Similar to the Sprint except you have to jump over some hurdles on route to the
    finish line. Don't try running in place before the match or you'll get a false
    start. As you may know from playing track n' field related games or watching it
    on TV. Too many false starts lead to an automatic disqualification. When the
    meet starts, run in place and be sure to jump at the right time. Not to early
    and not too late or you'll knock over the hurdle and lose precious time. First
    to the finish line wins. You know when you can jump when the hurdle turns green
    and you have good enough distance to clear it.
    After all events are done, the final points are tallied and the 1st, 2nd, and
    3rd place finishers are shown on the podium.
