Kinect Nat Geo TV
If your preteen loves Nat Geo TV and you have a Kinect system in your home then you have to make sure you put this on your video game shopping list. The game is essentially a unique marriage of TV Show and video game, actually eight different TV shows. In each of the episodes there are matching games and interactive moments where players have to shout out answers or wave or move in front of the Kinect sensor. The videos, which have loads of educational content, are interspersed with games where your child becomes part of the scene. By far one of the favorites of our testers was being able to learn about bears from naturalist Casey Anderson and his pet grizzly bear Brutus. Watching Brutus and then mimicking his behavior delighted kids. The scenery in the videos is stunning, as you would expect from National Geographic, but the added utilization and integration of the Kinect technology into the experience makes this title really stand out.
