Kinect Sports Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

Easy Goal

When it's your turn and the goal keeper kicks it in the air straight in the air, if you get the right angle it should go up and go right over his or her head (it works best online).

Track Racing Easter Eggs

Before you start running, you can move your arms and your computer opponent will say things and move away from you. This wont work with hurdles.

Get The Crowd To Cheer For You

If you run arounds with both hands up, they'll cheer for you and go wild.

Boxing Easter Egg

As soon as your opponent's life bar has run out, you can continuously hit him with swift punches and he will stay up as you hit him. He does eventually fall over though. Keep hitting to see how long they'll stand.
You can move your arms in a rotating position towards at your opponent to constantly hit him in the face. It does count as consecutive hits.

Use Both Feet

If your leg gets tired, you can use your other leg to kick the ball. It works surprisingly well.

Bowling Easter Eggs

You can throw the ball in the wrong direction and the crowd goes wild!
If you jump as you roll the ball, you can sometimes (not very often) break the wood on the floor. This might take a few attempts. You'll get an Achievement for doing it.
