Wow I got a few years ago and I thought it was free! That sucks. Don't really think it has enough content to pay $9.99 but maybe I just haven't unlocked everything yet.

I downloaded Fruit Ninja a couple days ago and played it for 15 minutes last night, along with 15 minutes of Kinect Adventures! for my first workout on day 1 of Sparkpeople. :) Probably could have gone longer, but didn't want to overdo it. Very nice burn for my arms! I love having Kinect and PS3 move games to supplement my workouts when I don't feel like leaving the house to go to the gym!

OK, I finally tried the free trial of Fruit Ninja today, and as soon as the trial was up, I bought it. What a workout for my arms! Both my arms feel like limp noodles and I can just imagine how sore they're going to be tomorrow. LOL

I think I'll like this a lot better than the boxing in Kinect Sports because sometimes I've hurt my elbows doing that by overextending my arms. Thanks for getting me hooked on Fruit Ninja!

EDIT: It's now the next day, and boy are my arms sore! I could barely lift my coffee cup this morning. My arms feel like those tiny little T-Rex useless claws. hahaha Looking forward to more Fruit Ninja today, though!

Even my 2 & 3 year olds love this game. I have to set the sensor down lower to register them correctly but it keeps them occupied for quite a while. :) You're right about the arm workout. Sometimes I can't seem to remind myself that I'm not actually swinging to hit something!

With all the rave reviews, I decided I had to try this for myself. Downloaded it last night and played it for half an hour. I can barely move my arms today! emoticon

I just wish it registered kicks more, that would be even better for a full body work-out. As it is, I think this will have to be a game I play every *other* day for a while!

Today is the first time I've heard of the fruit ninja ... So I looked it up .... It looks like fun. I'm thinking that that might be my valentines present this year instead of some chocolate.

We finally downloaded it today. We are loving it unfortunately though its the kids game and we put it on our xbox (thinking that everyone can use it) but our kinect barely see's the kids and we can't get the zoom to work. So I guess were buying a second copy of it!

We've had this game since Christmas (as it came with gunstringer) and yet still have not downloaded it to one of the xbox's. Sadly we havent played gunstringer yet either. I guess we should get on that and start playing these games!

Drunken Fruit Ninja! We had a Halloween party on Saturday and I fired up the Kinect after we'd been drinking. It was hilarious! There were 8 of us here at the time and everyone tried at least one game, I believe. Fruit Ninja was, by far, the most popular!

Just bought the Fruit Ninja Storm DLC! I really appreciate all the info on this Team's forums. I didn't even know about the additional DLC on these games. Great way to reward myself for doing so good on my first week of the SP program. I like rewards that are related to my health and fitness goals. How great is that! Played the Storm Fruit Ninja-great fun!

Also got the Calorie Challenge for Kinect Sports today. I'll try that tomorrow.

This has really gotten me excited about the xbox games again! Thanks to everyone!

That is interesting you bring up your mom with the visual impairment. I work with blinded veterans and was seriously thinking about getting a Kinect for them. For those that are legally blind and still have some sight, this might be fun. We were at one of those travelling Kinect booths and played some Kinect Sports 2 and Disneyland Adventures...seemed to go pretty well for those that were able. Great suggestion for Fruit Ninja...I think all ages and abilities will enjoy it. From three to 93.

Downloaded Fruit Ninja today and my family loves it. My littlest is turning three this weekend and we are planning to play it at her birthday party tomorrow with all her little friends. Even my mom who has a severe visual impairment is able to play it!

I was amazed the kids like this as much as grown-ups. It is really perfect for the whole family. It is cute seeing their little shadows on the screen too.

The only part about multiplayer is playing with two people of totally different heights, such as parent and kid. I have to get on my knees to make it even. It doesn't equate the height difference like many other games do...probably becuase of the whole shadow thing, versus using an avatar.

I totally agree though Kelly, this game is great and awesome group game. I hope to see more arcade titles that are this much fun.

I love this game! We had some friends over for the day, and we all rotated through playing games. It actually worked well with the group - we all laughed pretty hard and cheered each other on. It's amazing with kids too. If they need to burn of some energy, especially when they can't go outside, this is perfect fit!

Yeah, I really like the challenges where you friend's avatar show up and you have to beat their weekly score.

As for the DLC, I got them both, but I think it was closer to $2, not the usual 240 points as other Kinect DLC.

I can't speak highly enough about this game; for 800 points, it is a really fun game to keep coming back to and have in your collection. The one thing I would like to see from Microsoft is having a quicker way to get to it from the Kinect Hub. Right now it is easy because it is featured right on the hub, but as for my other Kinect games, not so easy.

I think the challenges are motivating also! I feel I can't get my goal, then right before my arms turn to jelly I get the points I was looking for. I haven't tried the DLC, I might when it's on sale for 1/2 off. $3 per DLC is more than I want to spend for this game. :D

Don't forget, there is the demo that you can nab for free. I have a feeling that after the demo, you'll be buying it. This is a very fun game.

I would definitely second your friend's opinion. I have played a lot of games and a lot of Kinect games, this one is well worth your $10 (or free if you get it with Gunstringer).

Having the leaderboards to see how you are doing with your friends (including people in this grou) only makes it more addicting. There is certainly that "just one more game" feeling here and you'll keep playing until your arms fall off.

I haven't actually played it yet, but my friend has and he LOVES it! He keeps telling me to get it and play it, and he's not the type to randomly suggest things without having a reason behind it.

While we did discuss this game a little bit here, bit.ly/rpbmVt , I have done a full review of the game here, bit.ly/rclNsP

For me personally, this is an awesome move by Microsoft to make Kinect games for $10.00. Definitely something that will get some smiles around the house.

How many of you have played this game? What are your thoughts? What about the DLC?
