This Kinect swansong shows that there was strange potential lurking within the peripheral after all.

The fluid movement, artwork, music, and technology all come together in FRU for a mesmerizing experience that really shows what the Kinect is capable of, or should I say was capable of. I can't imagine too many more games will be made for it, if any. At least people with Kinects can have one game to try to justify the purchase aside from some fancy voice controls. If you have a Kinect, you owe it to yourself to buy FRU.

The game clearly shows that the Kinect can be introduced into traditional games in unique, fun and useful ways to enhance the experience.

Kinect has been an unlucky device. Fru is a real masterpiece, a brilliant game everyone should try and share. Through Games delivers Kinect's Killer App: too bad they are few years late.

FRU delivers the game that the Kinect needs to remain as a viable device. The clever set of mechanics that are on offer means that if you have a Kinect currently gathering dust, you owe it a game of FRU.

The very best Kinect game by a wide margin, FRU shows just what might have been.

FRU bills itself as “The last Kinect game you’ll ever need to play!” While it may be easy to make jokes about that statement just based on the first few words alone, what we have here is not only what may very well be the best Kinect game ever, but also one of the year’s best puzzlers and platforming games overall.

FRU is a great puzzle platformer and the best use of Kinect to date. Unique controls, fun gameplay and challenging puzzles make this essential for any Kinect owner.

An example of what the Kinect can do when used creatively, Fru is a remarkably fun and hilarious puzzle-platformer that demands as much from your body as it does your mind. It’s bittersweet that it arrived so late to the party.

Short yet very intense, FRU is the best reason you should reconnect Kinect to your Xbox One.

The best Kinect-only game ever, and if nothing else that proves that an inspired developer can make a great game with even the most unpromising of hardware.

If you're a fan of Kinect, there's no reason why this game shouldn't be in your collection because FRU is a game that is testament to what could be achieved with Microsoft's peripheral.

It’s sad that Fru came out so long after the Kinect was a viable gaming peripheral. Had it released closer to the Xbox One’s launch, we might’ve been able to laud it as a reason to own a Kinect. As is, it’s a solid little puzzle-platformer that might be worth a look if you haven’t packed your Kinect away—assuming you ever got one in the first place.

While FRU is guilty of both a very short length and several frustrating moments, it still ends up being one of the most clever and successful uses of the Kinect around.
