Hmmmm

We just received the new Xbox 360 250gb model today and go the Kinect and adventures with it,
were finding it very unresponsive, namely when playing the game that involves hitting a ball against boxes. I was sitting behind Lisa when she was playing solo and when she went to swipe her hand to the right it took a second for it to register and move the character on screen.
Has anyone else had any unresponsive issues with the Kinect?
I'm beginning to think it's not all that it's cracked up to be :(

It could all just be because the game she was playing was a fast paced game and can't handle the quick movements....but then it should, shouldn't it ?

make sure you do the recognition to each gamertag so it knows who is who, also do the calibration that should help alot, i found the same as you until i done that.

Also Microsoft are planning to release a big kinect update to do advanced tracking ( rumored to even track finger movements ).

Sounds good looking forward to the update.
I found that game wasn't responsive as well so quite disappointing. The other games I got response times were fine though.

Firstly, make sure you do the calibration using the smiley face card in the game box. That should be done every time you change the lighting of the room or move the sensor (but I do it every time I turn it on just to make sure it's as accurate as possible). Pick up a controller in the game, press the Xbox button and open the Kinect Tuner. It'll show you if Kinect can see you properly, and how responsive it is.

Secondly, there is a bit of a delay in Kinect Adventures but it shouldn't be too noticable. It's one of the more laggy games, and it has a delay of about 200-250ms. If it is really 1 second behind, then something is wrong with your set-up -- it should be a quarter of that, at worst. Kinect Sports has a much improved lag of 100-150ms, which is on par with many controller based games (though the naturally laggy response time of the whole human body versus pushing a button can make it feel worse than it is). Dance Central doesn't have any problem, since body tracking is mostly done behind the scenes aside from the preview window.

Lighting shouldn't be a factor -- Kinect can work in the dark -- but direct sunlight can be. Having the curtains open is fine, but having sunlight shine right into the sensor is going to throw it off, as it would any lens.

Fortunately any lag associated with Kinect is purely software based. The camera itself has no perceivable lag, it is the body tracking which can be slow depending on the quality of the developer. Fortunately Microsoft are going to be evolving the tracking software so lag, even in older games, will be improved upon over time.

We bought Kinect Sports tonight and it was brilliant compared to the Adventures

What a laugh we had, what makes it even better is all the short recording shown at the end

Just hope this isn't such a passing phase and more great games are released

Funnily enough, you've skipped the worst of it. The first 6 months saw very few Kinect games released, but Microsoft recently announced that by the end of the year they're going to triple the portfolio of games, which means there is going to be over 50 new games before the end of the year. E3, the biggest conference in gaming, is on June 6th... expect a LOT of new games to be announced then.
