Damn that's old school. They are finding ways to put Kinect into everything.
Does this smell like chloroform to you?

Loved the original and plan on getting this as its a classic.

I defend kinect since its starting to show some nice features for games but dont want it in old school classic games.

Indeed. There is now a Kinect in my pants.

Why the hell are people still buying this nearly 30 year old game? STOP IT. It was garbage then, it's still garbage now

This video makes it look like it'll be cropped from its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio presentation down to a 1.78:1 aspect ratio (to allow for widescreen TVs, no doubt). Is there any information on this? Digital Leisure released this on blu-ray in a cropped 1.33 so maybe they're going to do it again. When Don Bluth's fantastic art is the main appeal of this game, it's a shame we'll lose some of it with this transfer.

This is how the developer came up with the idea: So we take a shitty game and we add Kinect to it.................

If that's all you can come up with then fuck off back to 4chan.

I was going to mention that also... This game was great in the arcade - just leave it as is was. The Kinect does not make things better.

Then don't use it, seems simple enough to me.

The concept of reacting as Dirk would react in this game is an interesting one. And its one that IF DONE RIGHT would be a fun way to play this game. People knocking it before its even come out is a shame as it has the potential to be a good game.

If you dont want to play it dont buy it simple as that. If you are judging it before its even released, at least download the demo to justify your premature judgement when it comes out.

That said it is a simplistic game ported over many consoles so anything over 800MSP (and that is if I like the demo) and it will do the game no favours.

Doubt you were even alive when it came out.

I remember sitting my quarters on the cabinet and fighting crowds watching and playing this game. (Hell Ya I'm old!) The arcade even put it outside of the arcade in the mall causeway because it was such a draw.

That being said it is an old game and maybe the first real QTE game. Maybe for nostalgia.

Hurray!

Now if only I hadn't spent about $500 in quarters on this when I was a kid...

BTW here's the solution for the last level:

Up, Down, Down, Right, Right, Left, Up.

Have fun !
