    Disneyland Adventures review

    By 25 November 2011

    Disneyland Adventures is the latest Kinect title for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 accessory aimed squarely at the kids, but can get you to fall in love with the magical kingdom all over again? We doubt there are many kids who don't love the magic of Disney,...

    Deepak Chopra's Leela for Kinect pictures and hands-on

    By 11 November 2011

    Deepak Chopra's Leela is an interesting proposition. Not exactly a game as such (although "Leela" roughly means "play" in Hindu), nor is it strictly fitness or educational software. It is, quite simply, unique and could well be the most inventive consumer-ready...

    Dance Central 2 review

    By 10 November 2011

    "I can't dance" sang Phil Collins in the '90s. He's not the only one, because here at Pocket-lint, we're quite famous for having the exact opposite of snake hips. Probably something like elephant hips. Sadly, with Dance Central 2 likely to be a hugely...

    Kinect Sports: Season Two review

    By 31 October 2011

    Kinect Sports was one of the must-have games on for the Xbox 360 Kinect, and showed us that games didn't have to be all about sitting on your sofa getting fat. But can the follow up, Kinect Sports: Season Two, match and build on the first outings success?...

    Sesame Street Once Upon a Monster sees the monsters of Sesame Street head to your computer. But is it as scary as it sounds, is it just another kids TV show cash it, or are you and your kids going to get some reward out of it somehow? We caught up with...

    By 17 June 2011

    The mobile game has made it to the big screen, but is it just as much fun? We tracked down the new Kinect game at E3 in Los Angeles to find out more. Is it just about slicing and dicing your way through fruit or is there something more to the action now...

    E3 Quick Play: Fable: The Journey

    By 17 June 2011

    The next Fable has been announced, but before you run to play Fable 3 again in preparation, it's not Fable 4. This time Molynuex and the gang have turned to the Kinect sensor for the Xbox 360, creating a game that exists in the Fable world but doesn't...

    E3 Quick Play: Mass Effect 3

    By 15 June 2011

    Available for the first time on three platforms – Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, Mass Effect is back (well kind of if you count a March 2012 release date being back). Still will it be any good, will the wait be worthwhile, and what happens to Commnander Shepard?...

    Dance Central review

    By 10 December 2010

    R-h-y-t-h-m as my music teacher used to drum into us week in week out at school. Why is that important?Because you’ll need plenty of it when it comes to playing Dance Central for the Kinect for Xbox 360. If you’ve been playing games for some time...

    Your Shape Fitness Evolved review

    By 15 November 2010

    Let’s set one thing straight from the beginning. Your Shape Fitness Evolved is not a game. Your Shape fires up a white medical-looking interface and you’re standing there looking back at yourself, not a picture of yourself mind you, but a moving shifting...

    Kinect Sports review

    By 10 November 2010

    Kinect for Xbox 360 is all about getting you to jump up and down in your living room, and there is no better way of doing that than with Kinect Sports. The best way to look at Kinect Sports is to think of it as the Kinect’s Wii Sports. As the name...
