We had exclusive access to the game at Rare Studios this week and went in deep with both in room and on screen game-play.
As you can see the first part of this process is to get your body and face scanned into the game. It’s all quite impressive. Just check out how friend of FamilyGamerTV, Outside Xbox’s Mike Channell, looked when scanned into Kinect Sports Rivals.
The game offers three returning sports in the form of Bowling, Tennis and Football (Soccer), along with three new activities, Wake Racing, Climbing and Target Shooting.
The game makes use of the new Xbox One Kinect sensor that is much more accurate and responsive that the 360 version along with enhanced voice controls and a whole player scanning system.
Here’s the official video about how Rare worked with Kinect to create this new hands-free gaming experience:
