Sports Island Freedom Screen Shots

Sports Island Freedom is a Sporting game available on the 360. It can be played in Competitive Thirdperson modes.

Sports Island Freedom is a Sporting game. Sports games recreate a wide variety of real life competitive activities. Depending on the sport, these will either have an action or strategy focus. Popular sports games are often released on an annual basis, each year the game receives new player rosters and game improvements.

Sports Island Freedom can be played in a Competitive mode. Competitive Multiplayer games provide experiences where players compete against each other and the computer. Obviously lending itself to sports and team games, these competitive engagements have also dominated the shooting and fighting genres because of the direct combat and expertise involved in each. Although these games were originally played in a split screen style, more recently they are played online via services such as PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and the Nintendo Wireless Connection.

Sports Island Freedom can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.


Sports Island Freedom

Sport Island Freedom brings Wii sporting know-how to bear on Kinect's controler-less activities. With a wider range of sports on offer this may give Kinect Sports a run for it's money.

Sports Island Freedom aims to translate Sports Island's (Decca Sports elsewhere) success from the Wii's motion controller to the 360's hands free Kinect controls. Although something of an unsung hero on the Wii - and disappointingly never making use of MotionPlus - Sports Island offered some of the most varied and well executed third party experiences.

Family Gamer review Mon, 15 Nov 2010

Sport Island Freedom is at times impressively ambitious, but mostly disappointingly vague. Ten events chart the game's scattershot approach to the Kinect controls. Although it's mainly young players who are best served, there is a glimmer of brilliance in the Kinect controlled first person shooter Paint Ball activity.

Sport Island Freedom brings the growing success of Sports Island (Decca Sports elsewhere) to the 360 via the Kinect controller. It's an impressive looking package that ambitiously offers Tennis, Boxing, Archery, Beach Volleyball, Paint Ball, Dodge Ball, Kendo, Mogul Skiing, Snowboard Cross and Figure Skating.
