Fighters Uncaged is the first Xbox 360 brawler that requires Kinect motion controller. The game was developed by AMA Games. It lets you take part in street brawls with use of MMA techniques. Thanks to the unique control system, the player has to stand up from a couch and take on virtual opponents with no controller in his hand.
The game offers large freedom when it comes to variety of available attacks. As the camera keeps tracking your performance, your moves are automatically rendered onscreen. There are 70 different attacks in total, which are ascribed to various martial arts. The idea was to include many fighting styles, so that everyone could find something for themselves. In combat you can use your fists, legs, or punch enemies with your elbow, knee, or head. There are also special attacks activated with voice – this is because performing some of them could result in tearing the living room apart.
You start as a rookie, who earns experience along with defeating enemies, thus, improving his fighting skills. What is important, each warrior has his own fighting style, which you should learn as quickly as possible in order to use his weak points. There is a special training mode for the beginners, which helps learn basic attacks and have more fun from the game.
There are 21 various arenas, on which you fight with other warriors. These include rooftops, dark alleys, or an abandoned church. An important feature is multiplayer, which allows you to play against a living opponent. It is also possible to beat each others’ records, which is encouraged by world ranks – with a little persistence you can climb up to the very top.
