I know what you're thinking; "Oh great, another kids game for the Kinect." And you'd be right! But what separates Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster from other Kinect titles? Tim. Schafer. His Double Fine Productions have recently created a slew of successful downloadable games over the past year. This latest venture includes an iconic licensed franchise and kid-friendly motion controls. It should be awesome. I'm going to try the demo right now!
Wow... Elmo's... kind of... a task master. I'm out of breath. I didn't know I had to dance so much to make friends with a monster! My one year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed the demo, but maybe she was just laughing at me. Probably both. The graphics look good, the gameplay is simple, and it should fun for parents with small children. What more do you need to know?
Oh... You wan to know all of that, huh? Well then stay tuned for our upcoming co-op review. Until then, enjoy this video. Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster is available now for the Xbox 360 Kinect. It supports two player local co-op.
