Hour zero for Project Natal is just around the corner, lucky members of the media are getting their first play test with natal just before E3. The latest hands-on impressions come straight from Dublin by video games website, The Gaming Liberty. Two skeptics from TGL attended a behind closed doors first look at Microsoftâ€™s Project Natal and theirÂ overall consensus was extremelyÂ positive, shedding some light on Natal’s possible lag problem.
” We skeptical types were treated to about 15 minutes of Natal time and honestly we can tell you that Natal, even from this small insight, is every skepticâ€™s nightmare. Within seconds of standing before the device for the very first time, we skeptical types were left reeling in shame for any inclinations of â€˜doubtâ€™ or â€˜skepticismâ€™ we had about Natal to this point. Natal is the real deal, plays like a dream and proves us skeptics irrevocably wrong. This dream is every skepticâ€™s nightmare because it proves us all to be very mistaken.. “
” Itâ€™s a powerful experience. Alexâ€™s avatar was incredibly responsive and he was punching, kicking and kneeing red balls at every discernable angle with different distributions of weight with no lag or no delays. “
” My Ricochet avatar was incredibly responsive. Any pose, any movement, anything, was recreated instantly on screen. Even jumping on the spot or twisting my upper body saw the avatar doing so too. Bending my knees, inverting them inwards or clapping my hands was again perfectly reiterated by my avatar. No lag, no delay and no thinking.Â “
” Before playing Natal we had so many questions and after our 15 minutes and actually playing it, we have so many more questions. Natal is the real deal.”
