Xbox 360 game review: Kung Fu Panda 2
In this review, I will discuss Kung Fu Panda 2 for Xbox 360. Kung Fu Panda 2 is based on the animated movie by the same name. This game is perhaps the only worth Kinect enabled title playable. Where most games force Kinect controls on you, Kung Fu Panda 2 has somehow perfectly taken use of the Kinect controller. Read on the review to find out what the game offers.
To start of my review, lets discuss the setting of the game. Kung Fu Panda 2 for Xbox is set after the events of the animated film. You will find the furious five and Po being troubled by various gorillas, wolves and dragons. Po is entitled to find out what has gone wrong and stop the bad guys from plotting against the good. The story may not be that interesting, but it still manages to fit perfectly in the universe of Kung Fu Panda.
Further down the review, let’s discuss the gameplay. Kung Fu Panda 2 is mostly based on fighting, which means you will be doing a lot of Kung Fu while playing the game. This may not be the real deal, but Kung Fu Panda 2 still offers a lot of Kung Fu fun. Using Kinect, you will be performing punches, kicks, blocks and jumping against a lot of enemies. When you beat the crap out of an enemy, you can perform special moves to finish them off. If you somehow manage to stun your enemies, you will be given the opportunity to summon one of the furious five to finish the foe off.

The best part of the game is its compatibility with Kinect. During my review I found absolutely no lag and the Kinect controller responded quite accurately. This is why it is the only title worth playing on Kinect, as it gets rid of all the frustration other games offer.
To finish of my review, I would say that Kung Fu Panda on Xbox 360 is one of the best Kinect titles available, which also makes it the best release as compared to other consoles. If you have been dying to try out how the Kinect controller works, this game is where you should really start.
