Don't let this game fly under your radar folks. One of the best Kinect games I played at E3. The game is simple, intuitive and most importantly fun. Following the simple yet addictive mechanics that made Fruit Ninja such a breakout success on mobile devices, Fruit Ninja Kinect stays true to the spirit of the beloved title while expanding players’ experience with new gameplay modes and unlockable content.
There are three single player modes: slice for the highest score while avoiding bombs in Classic Mode, serenely slice through 90 seconds of Zen Mode, or throw intense power-ups into the mayhem with Arcade Mode. Fruit Ninja Kinectalsoadds local multiplayer so Fruit Ninjas can slice side-by-side in pursuit of unlockable blades, backgrounds, avatar shadows and Achievements that only the quickest ninjas will conquer. True masters of fruit ninjutsu searching the lands for a worthy opponent can climb the online leaderboards, but only ninjas able to decimate the mysterious pomegranate—a rare fruit that players can attack furiously in bullet-time—will claim the highest scores.
And that's not all. The development team has committed to regular updates that will add additional functionality. Picture and Video capture anyone?
Fruit Ninja Kinect will be available for a very reasonable 800 MSP exclusively from the Xbox LIVE Arcade service as part of Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade promotion.
