Has anyone downloaded this yet to give a brief review? I was about to purchase it when I saw it's retailing for $10. Hard to justify paying $10 for a game that's $3 on my tablet...but I'm curious to hear about the differences between this on the big screen and on my 10" screen.

I did the trial. I have a hard time buying a game for $10 that was a free download on my phone (got it free on the amazon market daily free app). It played great but I think I'll wait till it's on sale or get Gunstringer (which has a code for FN included)

Got it yesterday....haven't played too much yet. Why? Because you can't! After about 20 min, I was soaked with sweat! Very fun playing the co-op and the vs. mode. Maybe not as accurate as the iphone version,,,,but the xbox game is more about going crazy fruit choppin, and not as much about making the precise multi fruit chops.

It's awesome.

My girls and I played it for a couple of hours yesterday.

Honestly it's the first game that really takes advantage of your feet as well as your hands, because you can use both to chop the fruit and it tracks perfectly.

I paid $.99 for it on my phone, not a very deep game. It can entertain my kids for a few minutes every now and then. Kind of embarrassing that it became a $10 Kinect game. I hope it gets some none arms waving games soon.

Tried the demo and thought it was very good. Some of the best tracking and precise/quickest tracking yet. Much better than kinect adventures or other games i have tried. Good fun, and call me crazy, but it is easier when u chop like a ninja....

It's Fruit Ninja.. It seemed very well done from the demo but really there is not much in the way of gameplay in FN. I would have dropped $5 just to play it for a while and see how I score but I had no desire to drop $10. When so many deep games just came out for only $15.

just finished the demo and wow. that's some great stuff. at first, I was conservative and did poorly on my first try, missing fruit. but once I let go and swung like a ninja, it was awesome. I was deftly navigating between bombs. Got a couple 6-fruit combos. Unleashed a few bananas to rachet things up.


Man! I can't wait for The Gunstringer to come out so I can slice some fruit!!!


And man, that is an intense few minutes of Fruit Ninja. I was seriously sweating.

Played this with another couple last night for half an hour and was beat afterwards. I tried Kinect Adventures after playing Ninja and was very underwhelmed. Ninjas tracking seems way more precise and accurate...... makes sense since it had more time to develop and make use of Kinect......makes me excited for new Kinect games,

This is my favorite game other than Dance Central. And yes, the tracking seems much tighter than some of the other titles. Definitely worth $10, it's more fun than many of the other "disc" titles IMHO.

Exactly, the mechanics used in this game don't seem as gimmicky as the many other kinect titles I have tried (Kinectimals, Adventures, Sports, Sonic Riders, Joy Ride.....). Maybe it's because there is one basic swiping/slashing motion that needs to be registered and they focused on getting that perfect. Whatever they did they nailed it. Awesome fun title

I played the co-op, it works really well and is a ton of fun - just don't knock each other out!

I didn't realize there was a demo, I'll have to give this a shot! Glad to hear user reviews here, IGN beat it up with a 5.5.


-JR

Good thing I don't go by reviews. My family and I have been having a blast with the game. I never even played the Iphone version until after I got this one.

Just wanted to add that if you have an assortment of nerf and ninja toy weapons around the house you can actually wield them while playing the game. It doesn't do an awesome job of tracking them but it does work some what and adds another dimension to the game. Try it out see how you like it.

I was thinking about dual wielding large kitchen knives.......and playing with the living room windows open......
