Honorable Mentions

Vote Them Up!

Hulk Hogan’s Main Event: As if reality TV wasn’t enough, looks like Hulk Hogan has his hand in the Kinect cookie jar as well. This game lets you try out all sorts of special moves that you’d expect in any televised wrestling match worth its salt. It’s a nice companion to Fighters Uncaged, as the games are quite different in style and gameplay.

Rise of Nightmares: Here’s a Kinect fighting game that’s perfect for people who love all things gory-B-horror-movie. The terrifying action on the screen will be all that much more realistic when you have to actually control your character’s movements with your body. Hopefully, you’ll be up for hacking and slashing your way through the fear. Want a taste of the action? You can watch an extremely gruesome trailer here (obviously, not suitable for all audiences!)

Dragon Ball Z for Kinect: If you like Dragon Ball Z, you can now enjoy the franchise with full-body motion controls! Reviewers enjoyed the game, although some found it a bit repetitive.

#6: PowerUP Heroes

Power Up Your Avatar

Power Up Heroes This game lets your Xbox avatar become a hero. Collect 20 super-powered suits to do battle alone, in versus mode with a friend, or online. The Kinect allows you to use your whole body to get into the fighting action.

PowerUp Heroes is made by UBI Soft, the same company that made Your Shape Fitness, Evolved (which has been voted one of the best Kinect exercise games), so you know that they’ve got the body-scanning and motion controls part down.

And the #1 Best Kinect Fighting Game Is...

... Fighters Uncaged!

Fighters Uncaged - Xbox 360

#1: Fighters Uncaged

Note: Although Fighters Uncaged has more votes, the more recently released Kung Fu High Impact has better reviews on Amazon than Fighters Uncaged, especially for the motion tracking. Read the reviews and decide for yourself which you think is the better game!

This is currently the best example of a fighting game on the Kinect to date. It's a game that really showcases the capabilities of the Kinect well, allowing you to use your whole body to fight your way through multiple opponents and levels. Some players say that getting the moves down right is tricky, but once you do, there is plenty of fun to be had. There's also a tag-team mode that allows you to play with a friend.

    Are you retarded? Fighters Uncaged was the worst game of 2010. Stop shilling for game companies you scumbag.

    I'm sorry you feel that way! I rank the games by user votes, instead of my own opinions, so these are the feelings of visitors to this site, not my own. According to the Amazon reviews, there are plenty of people who enjoyed Fighters Uncaged - it's certainly not as poorly reviewed as other games I've seen. I always encourage people to look at the ratings on Amazon, talk to friends, and read third-party reviews before they buy a game. And not everyone is looking for the same thing in a game - for example, Star Wars Kinect isn't particularly responsive, but there are plenty of people who love the title!
