My Wii is getting far more use as an emulator box anyway.
I feel like Sony was the bigger offender in terms of riding Nintendo's coattails with the motion control dad. At least the Kinect was new technology and tried something different. The move works better than the original wii controllers, and maybe even better than motion plus, but it didn't bring anything new to the table.
I remember the commercial they tried taking a shot at nintendo by saying their controller had more buttons. If that's the best they have you know that the tech is going to die. I like sports champions (more coattail riding) and the couple of rail shooters I have (both ports of wii games), but I wouldn't keep the move if I weren't a collector.
In concept I would say no, it's very different from eyetoy. A 3d camera had never been made anywhere nearcheap enough for mass consumption, so what Microsoft did in regards to the tech was very impressive.
Unfortunately, in execution, yeah, it's basically an eyetoy. The best games were ones that probably didn't need a 3d camera to work. Dance Central was probably the best use of the camera; it was the one exclusive.that seems like it couldn't be done as well with other tech. Games like Kinect Adventures and Kinect Sports were fun, but could have been just as well done with a 2d camera and/or a.motion controller. Games that tried to utilize the camera for more precise movements were usually catastrophies (ie Steel Batallion), so the minority report menu manipulation we expected amounted to no more than a pipe dream.
Anuway, regarding the reviews: I almost pucked up Medieval Moves on a couple occasions; I think it got a pretty good review on ign. The problem with ogn is their reviewers only rebiew for one platform, so the ps3 reviewer tends to be biased towards sony and will review something unique lime Medieval Moves more highly. It's not a good policy to have. Better to have people who have all the consoles review, that way they see crap as crap without any company loyalty closing their judgement. Glad I didn't pick that game up now.
Steel Battalion handles precise movements pretty well as long as you don't jerk around too much(which was the mistake a lot of game reviewers made) and you were the right distance from the TV, Rise Of Nightmares was also a pretty good title that utilized the Kinnect well.
Wii Sports is arguably better played while standing up most of the time, too. The bowling mini-games in particular. There isn't much room for a decent follow thru while sitting down.
