In case you haven’t heard, Kinect has been released today in the U.S. But is the Xbox 360 motion-control system actually any good?

Kinect is Microsoft’s answer to the Nintendo Wii. It turns your whole body into a games controller, with various party games allowing you and your family to play the Xbox with your limbs rather than buttons.

This video shows a review from IGN, with the system and some of the games available from at launch given a thorough testing.

The reviews have been mildly positive at best. Most agree that Kinect has lots of potential but it’s being let down by both technical limits and the lack of a must-have game.

If you have an Xbox 360, $150 to spare, and a desire to play games with your body then why not. Otherwise, I’d stick to your Wii until Kinect is improved and some decent games arrive for it.
