Ever wanted your own pet tiger? Or to motion-explore a hi-def island? Kinectimals is all that and more!

If you watched a video of Kinectimals, you would think that this game is strictly a pet sim. If you immediately took this game off your radar because of that, you have made a mistake. Kinectimals is not a Nintendogs copycat. Sure, you have a fuzzy wild cat that you can name, pet, and train, but there is a lot more to this game!


More Than Meets the Eye

Beyond pet training, Kinectimals features a huge island for you to explore and discover, all with HD graphics. After picking out your pet, you will get an incomplete map of the island. By playing games with your pet, you fill up an experience bar and can use the points to reveal a new map area. You can also compete in challenges to get new toys and new mini-games.


There are a lot of mini-games in Kinectimals and they all use the Kinect motion sensor extremely well. A lot are sports-related, like tossing balls, throwing frisbees, and playing volleyball. It's pretty similar to other motion controlled sports game except that you'll be playing with your pet! Also, at any time you can just use the toys to play however you want with your pet. The game will also throw new challenges at you to try out for points, but you can do as you please.


Cute and Cuddly

You can choose from different wildcats, including tigers and panthers, to be your companion on the island. Your pet will respond to the name you give it and you can get it to do tricks with voice and motion gestures. The pets don't mind if you ignore it for a long time and nothing bad can happen to them, it's great for young kids who want to have a pet.


Overall, Kinectimals is a great game. The motion controls work wonderfully and the game is never boring. There are hours of interesting and exciting game play here, as you will always be a few points away from unlocking the next item or area. There is also multiplayer, but you might want to hog all the fun for yourself!
