    Where are all the ambitious Kinect games?

    If God's a gamer, I'm not going to heaven. After all, I'm a firm, if occasional, fan of games that rely exclusively on the Kinect sensor, and Kinect is clearly a device assembled by Dark Powers to lure the Righteous from the Way of Ironsights. Developers have taken several stabs at the notion of pure gesture control, most of which haven't really panned out, and some of which have proven utterly dreadful.

Thanks in no small part to a set of Side Ops missions that impose different engagement criteria, objectives and obstacles on the same environment, Ground Zeroes is a delicately tooled and responsive sandbox, unfolding under the hand like a Swiss Army knife.

    Still playing: Forza 5 - why Turn 10's flawed racer won't let me go

    If game characters were like the toys in Toy Story, I'd be feeling bloody guilty right about now. I'd have Jago, Messi, Marius and a Zoo Tycoon panda all looking at me with puppy-dog eyes, begging me to play with them. "I can't help it," I'd regretfully explain. "I'm trapped. I need to do Prague for the 19th time."
