I just watched some relatively brief footage of this from a couple of weeks ago... am I crazy, or does this look like potentially the first good Kinect game?

Had to happen sooner or later, eh? Never played the first, think it would have been right up my street. Can't see this being enough to get me to splurge on the Kinect though. Can't even remember the last time I used the Move (although my daughter loves it).

Demo is up on Live, 1Gb in size, consists of a pretty good tutorial and a beach storming mission like in the trailer.

It's actually pretty good!

Is it playable without Kinect?

No, it's pad+Kinect.

Sitting down by any chance? Noticed the SDK now allows for seated Kinect (about flipping time!)

You only stand up when you're sticking your head out of the hatch, so you can have a look around and use your binos. Doing it during combat would get you killed pretty quickly so you're sat down most of the time.

Given the nature of the game there's no third person view.

Hmmm time to dust Kinect off then by the sound of it! It does sound like a good use of the tech, and anything featuring big stompy mechs is an automatic win win for me.
