Kinect Soccer (known as Football in the game) requires players to act offensively in stages. Instead of running around the field, players must pass the ball by kicking it in the direction of another player while avoiding computer opponents. When a player is close enough to the goal, you can attempt to kick the ball into the goal. You can curve the ball by positioning yourself in one direction and then kicking the ball at an angle. Curving your shot makes it more difficult for the computer goalie to defend against it.
Begin a game of Kinect Soccer and assume control of the ball.
Pass the ball to the player closest to the goal by aligning yourself so that you are facing that player and making a kicking motion. Note that you will not be able to curve your passes.
Position yourself so that you are facing the goalie at about a 45-degree angle. Make a kicking motion towards the opposite end of the goal away from where the goalie is standing. If done correctly, your shot will curve instead of going straight.
Tips & Warnings
- Make a quick and powerful kicking motion to increase the speed of your shots. Quick shots have a better chance of scoring against the goalie.
- The Kinect hardware is imperfect and will sometimes register your motions incorrectly. You can minimize this by setting the Kinect motion sensor on a flat surface near the center of your television.
