Kinect Sports Boxing was fun while I had a friend over to help hammer the 360 Slim Kinect system, but I don’t have any serious urges to continue to play this game mode outside of going Achievement hunting. It was what I would describe as a human button smashing fest. Wild punches, mixed in with a little confusion and I’m just glad no one got hit in the face with a virtual haymaker in my living room. Boxing is easy, simple, and fast which makes it competitive quickly, but if you’re looking for a boxing or fighting solution that is more simulation then there’s nothing to see here.
Out of the 6 game modes in Microsoft’s 360 Kinect system I’d rank this 6th or 5th, tied or flip-flopped with Kinect Sports Bowling. What matters most, however, is your opinion, gaming and social style. If you have frequent visitors to your home that aren’t hard-core but enjoy a competitive simple battle, then you might plug in boxing. But I’d recommend busting out one of the better Kinect Sports game modes like Volleyball or Track n Field.
Microsoft have released 3 more “Kinect Sports Gems”, downloadable standalone versions of some of the Kinect Sports games mini-games and revealed the next 3.
