Red Bull not only gives you wings, but also brings gamers closer to the sport of Ice Cross Down Hill with Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect for the Xbox 360 Kinect. In this game, players get to race downhill as they jump, duck, kick, and speed-skate towards the finish line. Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect is fun for the whole family and is definitely a great workout for those looking to do some cardio.

The courses are long enough to get you sweating, and short enough that you won’t quit halfway. The jumping, ducking, kicking, and blocking exercises keep your whole body moving and your reflexes honed. Playing this game is like doing a speed skating drill, especially when you start moving your feet. So long as you’re moving your feet, speed skating drills work on your quadriceps, gluteals, and hamstrings. The reason you’d want to move your feet is because it helps you swing your arms faster, which will only get you closer to the finish line in a shorter amount of time.

In Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect, you don’t only race to achieve high scores—you race for cool equipment to customize your in-game avatar. In addition, you could unlock gear such as a jersey, helmet or pants for your Xbox 360. And who doesn’t like free gifts?

Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect definitely has replay value. The achievements are challenging, but not so much that you just want to quit on them. Local co-op lets you have competitive fun alongside your friends and family.

Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect also lets gamers compete online with a less tedious system than most other games. Rather than searching for players currently online, the game gives you the option to choose who who’s record you want to beat, online or offline. Instead of competing with them presently, you race against their “ghost” for some spiritual competition.

Overall Impression:
Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect is extremely fun and a great workout. This game is enjoyable for every type of gamers, regardless of their fitness level. I would recommend this game for anyone looking to have a fun healthy workout at home. I have no complaints about it and it’s fairly priced for what it offers. Overall, this game gets a ten out of ten.
