Fun game, but the Kinect controls...Yikes!

I guess they are okay in the sense that in a party atmosphere it "levels the playing field" so seasoned gamers can play fairly against just about any non-gamer and have a fighting chance.

But playing the game in solo to get high scores, unlock cars and achievements...forget it.
