I think the Kinect really shines when it is used as part of a larger control scheme, as opposed to being the primary control method of a game. I think it works great for Forza 4, for instance; I always drive in the cockpit view, so being able to look into the upcoming curve is a big help.

I have high hopes for the new Steel Battalion. They seem to have the right idea, with their hybrid controller / Kinect control scheme. But then again, there’s this:

Fist Bump

It’s not a big deal, but it’s just silly. I hope there aren’t too many examples of gratuitous Kinect use / abuse like this in the game.

Edit: Five months later, I realize this comic is missing a word in the last panel. Fixed…  :-O
