Kinect Adventures definitely hit the mark as an opening game for the kinect. This game really embodies everything that Microsoft has advertised by making you want to get off the couch and jump around in an entirely new game experience.

The game controls are simple and intuitive. If you want your character to jump, then you jump. If you want your character to move to the side, then you move to the side. Whether you are young, old, gamer, or non-gamer this is definitely a game worth playing and adding to your collection. You'll be collecting coins, dodging obstacles, popping bubbles, and smacking balls until you just can't play any longer. The best part is that you can do it with someone and have some silly fun together.

The end result for the game play that I experienced with my family was always good old fashioned fun and lots of laughter.
