Taking the Fable franchise into first person realms, the Journey is built on the Unreal Engine 3 developed by Epic Games and harnesses the Kinect's camera to wield magic, grab the reigns on your horse and carriage, and pick up on items on the way to upgrade your powers. Peter Molyneux may have left the buiilding, but this is still a Kinect-supporting title that will be worth checking out when it lands later this year.

You won't be able to perform scissor kicks in your living room just yet, but for the latest instalment of FIFA, Kinect voice recognition support means you can now call out tactical changes, throw on an extra striker in the last fifteen minutes and if you show your disapproval at a bad refereeing decision in the most explicit way, Martin Tyler will make reference to your frustrations.
Due: Autumn 2012
Ditching the somewhat pointless head-tracking from Forza Motorsport 4, Horizon is all about racing around in an open world environment based around the Horizon Festival with music curated by Radio 1 DJ Rob Da Bank.

If you are fan of the other game called football, the latest Madden will use Kinect voce recognition to let you give a signal to individual players, change tactics and make pre-snap calls whether it's a defensive or offensive situation. When NFl legend demonstrated it at the Xbox press conference he said it was 'pretty sweet' and we are not ones to disagree with a sporting icon.
Due: Autumn 2012
Inspired by Marvel comic artwork and not the Hollwood blockbuster films, this beat-em-up title will feature 20 characters from the Marvel world including Spiderman, The Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. It's unclear how Kinect will be used in the game, but we look forward to finding out how we will have to get our claws out Wolverine-style..
