The Michael Phelps Push the Limit Xbox 360 Kinect game comes just in time for the build up of excitement for the 2012 Summer Olympics and the Kinect Demo for this game is now available for free download from Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Especially for swimming enthusiasts or anyone who witnessed multi world record breaking olympic champion Michael Phelps during the last Olympics, this game is AWESOME and something worth putting on your letter to Santa! This game requires the “Kinect”accessory to the XBOX.
Rated E for Everyone, this game is TRULY fun for ALL ages. My children ages 4, 7, and 9, and my husband and I (mid thirties!) all LOVE this game. The Kinect accessory has made video games in my house a “healthy” family activity and so far (knock on wood) we don’t have any non-kinect XBOX games so we have HAVE to get off the couch if we want to play. My husband was the first to play Michael Phelps Push the Limit. For someone who wakes up before 5am to go the gym 5 days a week, I was surprised to hear him say that it was a killer workout for the arms and a great cardio workout! All three of my children enjoy the intense competition of swimming (on land!) and it is definitely a game that takes lots of energy so it is PERfect for children of all ages that need to get their wiggles out. My favorite part of this game are the beautiful graphics that are part of the game experience that are so REAL life-like yet actually animated and the opportunity the players get to compete with international athletes and Michael Phelps himself! This awesome Christmas Gift Idea can be purchased at Gamestop.com or on Amazon.
I was not paid to write this review but I did receive a copy of this video game to facilitate the response.
