Kinect Sports Rivals is nowhere as immediately gratifying and fun as Wii Sports. There could be a lot of depth hidden in each of the game modes, but unfortunately, my preview session didn't afford a much time with each sport. Instead, rapidly playing individual rounds of each of the sports didn't feel immediately intuitive.
Jet ski racing is easily the highlight of the six sports represented. It's no surprise why Microsoft and Rare decided to showcase it in the Pre-Season demo. It's fast, pretty, and incredibly intuitive; leaning your body to turn just feels right.
