Cuisse
Time Period: 12th-17th century
Location: Europe
Common Construction: Leather, Steel

Cuisse is a general term for armor that protects the thigh. Typically body armor such as chain mail or breastplates did not adequately protect the legs from attack, and the cuisses were developed in the 12th century to increase survivability.


Originally they were made of leather, but cuisse construction advanced in tandem with armor in general and later cuisses were constructed of steel plates. Their use continued until armor was abandoned in the 17th century due to the widespread use of gunpowder.

Geezus christ this game at MOST shulod of only had minor kinect functions that were optional. I'm so sick of seeing kinect only games. Its as though MS is aribtarily forcing developers to make kinect only games just to push their crappy over priced 99 dollar peripheral that deosn't even work right. Sor of how they are swearing upa dn down taht windows 8 is gona be some sort of desktop revolution .. when in reality it wil jsut cause a desktop revolt , and this peice of crap xbox hardware is just revolting. I refuse to buy it. The fact that cashcom butt humped this game series into being only kinect is even more upsetting , i loved the first game with it huge awsome controller. but this sh*t is weak. Great review joe and thansk for letting us know this game like all otehr kinect games .. IS BROKE.
