Summary: I've been a longtime fan of My Fitness Coach and My Fitness Coach II for the Wii. I saw Sony Get Fit With Mel B in a store, but I passed on it because I figured it was too oriented toward dancing and geared more for women. When I saw it here for $6 (and Prime) and read a couple of the reviews, I figured I'd give it a shot. I've been doing it for about two months (it's been the one I'm doing most often) and it's actually much better than I figured it would be.
Summary: The work out is easy to follow. An image of you is super imposed over a background which is neat. Not sure why the dance games do not do that. After I entered my vitals, I was not able to change users and everyone is stuck working out to my statistics.
Summary: I'm not sure if it's the game or the playstation eye, but the camera is constantly changing its focus it will pick up me and then pick up the whole room, and I rarely get consistent credit for the moves I make. One thing I really also don't like is that Mel B should be holding a remote too so we know the best way to have movement picked up accurately. How do you get 30% on jumping jacks?!
Summary: I got this for my wife because she likes to get on the PS3 to work-out or do yoga. She doesn't seem to like this one too much but that may be because she is used to playing others. I have opened the game and played around but overall it's not a game/workout that I would look forward to. I like the x-box ones a lot better.

Summary: There are great workouts on this game. The game itself is fine but its the MOVE controller and Camera where the problem is. I have to stand in my hallway for my whole body to fit onto the TV and my height is 6'0. Most of the time the Camera doesn't even detect the MOVE controller. But I can use this game without the Camera and controller.
Summary: I bought this game a while ago, hoping it would get me to work out. From what I remember, if you do more than a 30 minute work out you just keep repeating sets of a few exercises....I found I was really bored with this. The camera angle was hard to set up. I have a shallow living room so I had to stand in the farthest corner of the room & tweak the camera.
Summary: I was super excited to get the game, after 4 workouts I am not so thrilled about it. It is getting frustrating really fast. Here are the issues I have encountered so far: 1. Each set of exercises is limited to 15 min and then you repeat the set for the total of 30 min. To me this is kind of annoying, because you go through standing exercises, ball, weights, floor and then all over again, so certain amount of time is lost and you cool down while getting weights on and off...
