It just sucks

Summary: I was given this game by a person in my personal training class to figure out what she was doing wrong and why she couldn't get it to work properly. The answer is NOTHING! The game just sucks, it is very difficult to get the avatar to respond, most of the time, the movements you have to execute in order to get it to do what you want are not the actions they are actually doing, the response time between when you move and the figure moves is rediculously slow,and the...
Summary: Oh boy, where do I start? I wish I'd read the other reviews before I went and bought this! I have wii sports, sports resorts and wii fit plus and was looking for something to complement them and after watching the biggest loser on TV, decided I liked Jillian, so went ahead and bought this. First of all, the graphics are dull, miserable and grey and remind you of a rainy, winter day in England.
Summary: I was one of the poor slobs who pre-ordered this in 2009 when it came out. The reason that it's a year later and I'm only writing this review now is because I forgot about it. It was so bad that I used it two or three times before unceremoniously tossing it aside. The "game" includes several workouts designed around a boot camp--balancing on logs, etc. and tips from Jillian.
Summary: Okay, I had heard all the bad reviews and had NO intention of buying this game....so, of course someone got it for me for Christmas! I put it in for a few minutes before and thought I was doing something wrong, it wasn't responding right. I just now did a 30 min. workout with it and boy is that frustrating! The game doesn't respond to the controllers!!! You can be running your little heart out and the stupid person stops in the path and stands there.
Summary: From the moment I turned on the game it was obvious that it wasn't very good. Jillian Michaels came on the screen to welcome me to her workout game and disappeared mid sentence. The graphics were some of the worst I've ever seen in a Wii game. The avatar options are really limited and the options they give you for customization are so terrible they shouldn't have even bothered.
Summary: I can not get this training program to work properly. Maybe it is the way I have my Wii setup but it won't answer to the controls and foot board. Make sure you can return it if you find the same thing.
how in the world could jillians name be on this???

Summary: i really really thought this game, would help with weight loss, and be, well FUN! especially since it was jillians game. but like every minute and a half or so you have to run for at least 2 min and 45 seconds! i honestly could just have the wii remote and play the games. jumping over the logs were not that hard, but they werent that easy. but, even with the horible graphics, and okay workout, i think its a good idea to try her latest video game.
Summary: I have tried to use this a few times and I feel it was a waste of money. The remote doesn't always work with the program and I don't like the fact that it doesn't take my weight every time. I just bought the WII Active and prefer that over this.
Boring graphics, good workout--but doesn't respond well

Summary: I just tried it for the second time. This is an intense workout with good intervals, but 1)the graphics are really boring, and 2)the game doesn't sense your movement much or at all sometimes. Graphics: lame settings, really monotonous, kind of depressing (lacks brightness, sunshine, etc.). You're mostly in the woods b/c you're supposed to be at a camp. There are piles of tires, etc., to make it look like a bootcamp, but it's just kind of sad-looking.
