We have had many kinect releases (seen as we just saw the release of the hardware that is understandable) and rather than confuse issues they have been bundled into one post. All the titles in this post will be straight up disc games, XBLA releases and any indie games that use the hardware will be left for other posts.
As one might expect it is largely a parade of gimmicks, tech demos hastily turned into games or shoehorned into developing titles, mini games, non games and games that barely deserve full pricing.

In order of releases

Sonic_Free_Riders-READNFO-XBOX360-DAGGER
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3960
The sonic racing games appear for kinect, reviews say it does well for itself. Think hoverboard.

Dance.Masters.NTSC.XBOX360-CCCLX
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3954
Words (well than 100 of them) can not express this one, video on the other hand http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUz3G8W7fxQ

Your.Shape.Fitness.Evolved.XBOX360-GLoBAL
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3953
The 360 equivalent of a workout DVD although this one gives you feedback.

MotionSports.XBOX360-GLoBAL
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3951
mini game collection of various sports actions (rather than simulate a sport you might have to defend a goal or something).

Kinectimals.XBOX360-GLoBAL
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3950
A virtual pet for the kinect hardware.

The_Biggest_Loser_Ultimate_Workout_REGION_FREE_XBOX360-ZRY
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3947
A game cash in on a bad reality TV show.............. compared to Your Shape Fitness Evolved this one is definitely more diet related. On the other hand exercising and eating properly are about the only way to being fit so this is probably a better waste of money than most diet gimmicks.

Adrenalin_Misfits_USA_REGION_LOCK_XBOX360-ZRY
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3942
Snowboard/skateboard game that misses the mark somewhat apparently.

Kinect.Sports.XBOX360-MARVEL
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3941
Wii sports but with full body tracking (or as much as the hardware can afford), apparently the hardware works and as wii sports was fun to play it follows this is not bad either.

Kinect.Joy.Ride.XBOX360-MARVEL
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3940
While the basic motion controls afforded by the wii and PS3 did a fair bit to legitimise handlebar syndrome this apparently takes it to the next level while not being that brilliant of a racing game.

Dance.Central.XBOX360-MARVEL
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3938
MTV does a dancing game. One video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUz3G8W7fxQ

Kinect.Adventures.XBOX360-MARVEL
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3936
Mini games set in Indiana Jones type locations using the kinect hardware.

Fighters_Uncaged_XBOX360-CCCLX
http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=3930
Fighting games that actually mimic movement is something of a dream for some people (although the games as escapism/fantasy crowd might have something to say). Of the 10 reviews (or in some cases attempts at reviewing) I read for this all utterly trashed this game.
