I get the point; this is an M-rated Kinect game. Can you please stop throwing blood all over me, Sega? Oh god, it's in my mouth.

Sega's Rise of Nightmares is the gamer that finally realizes the joy of air-chainsawing the undead into tiny little pieces, even if it still has a way to go towards capturing the joy of simple movement and navigation.

Frankly I feel Sega is trying too hard. All we really need is a guy standing still in a dark room while hordes of bizarre creatures charging us and tons of dismemberment-friendly devices within arm's reach. Don't sweat the moving about. All I crave are clockwork zombies, undead maids, and a scythe to disembowel them by.

I remember I kept confusing Rise of Nightmares with Shadows of the Damned because they both have incredibly generic horror-ish titles.

I can't be the only one, and that really can't be helping either game.
