If only my granny was… No actually I’d hate that.
Well Sega certainly is pushing this game an interesting way.They seem to be taking the anti-casual route, which is a similar strategy to the one they used to push games like MadWorld and House of the Dead: Overkill on the Wii. I know that this is just a marketing strategy but I can’t help giving a little smile of agreement; I’m generally not a fan of motion controls at all, but they are made far worse by the over saturation of dancing and mini games aimed at the casual crowd.
As for Rise of Nightmares, it looks like a fun little game. I see it as a bit of a tongue in cheek distraction more than something compelling but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I do hope the humour from the trailers carries across to the game itself.
Rise of Nightmares is exclusive to Kinect and will release on the 6th of September in North America (the 9th in Europe).
