The game is played using Kinect the motion controller add-on. So you have to maneuver the craft with your movements. The experience takes you through the entry of the craft to the rover drop down. Remember it’s “seven minutes of terror” to see if you get the rover landed correctly. If you’ve got a Xbox 360 and Kinect, go check it out or find a friend who does have one.
