I knew they'd butcher this game if it was to be a Kinect experience. Well I guess it could still be decent, or different to how I imagine it turning out, but I have a feeling 'cinematic' means - hand holding, forcing you in one direction, jesture based gameplay.
As much good as Kinect is doing MS at the minute, it sure is messing core games up. Be thankful Gears 3 isn't 'Kinect Enabled'.
But to most non-harcore gamers it will look like a graphically amazing, cinematic action experience. They'll market it as being able to take part in your own medievil action movie. I'm certain it'll look impressive as a stage demo, but how fun will it be to play?
I'd like to add that I'm not against on the rails games, per say. Panzer Dragoon is one of my favourite game series of all time and Child of Eden for Kinect looks amazing - a game that could sell me the system. However a game such as Kingdoms, where it's hack and slash, seems very ill-suited for this genre. But I will reserve final judgement until I've heard some feedback from the press.
