Fruit Ninja Kinect: Xbox 360 Game Review

Fruit Ninja Kinect: Xbox 360 Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 10, 2011
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

The popular mobile app, Fruit Ninja, comes to the big(ger) screen on the Xbox 360! But is this HD version worth the extra cost? Read our review and find out!

Fruit Ninja is a fairly popular 99 cent app for the iPhone/iPad that has you swiping the touch screen with your finger to slice various fruit while avoiding explosive bombs. As a 60 second distraction on a mobile device, it is perfect as quick and easy entertainment when you are on the bus or waiting in line.

Fruit and Ninja Kinection

Now available for download on the Xbox Live Arcade, Fruit Ninja Kinect brings the colorful fruit chopping action to the big screen, but at nearly ten times the cost. Instead of swiping your finger on a touch screen, the XBLA game uses the Kinect motion controller to have you karate chop and even kick fruits in half.

The motion control is super accurate in game and you will definitely be getting some exercise with your frantic flailing. Just be careful not to scratch your nose in the middle of a game or you might accidently hit a bomb! The motion control for the menu controls is a little less accurate, which can be annoying.

Ninja Battle Modes

Just like the app version of the game, Fruit Ninja Kinect has three modes. In Classic Mode, you continue to slice fruit until you miss three or hit one bomb. In Arcade Mode, you have one minute to karate chop as many fruit as possible with special power up fruits helping you along the way. Finally, there is Zen Mode, where you can cut fruit without worrying about bombs.

There is a leaderboard in the game that keeps track of the best scores. You can also play two player co-op, where you share power ups and work together to slice fruit, or competitive, where you must chop your fruits and not the ones of your opponent. However, be careful! It's very easy to accidently chop your second player in the fruit frenzy.

Overall, Fruit Ninja Kinect is a decent game. However, as a 60 second distraction, it is better as an app than as a console game that takes forever to load up.

.-. I'm more of an Undertale Fan, but I like FNAF as well. Both are good games.
