Summary: Lots of good songs. Short, medium, and full-length class options. Can create customized classes. I highly recommend it, with the caveat below. I lost a bunch of weight! It makes exercise almost fun for someone like me who dislikes exercising. WARNING--Although this is rated E, it's really not for everyone. It contains at least one profanity (used twice or more), mentions drinking, and has a number of sexually suggestive moves.
Summary: It was fun and easy to follow if a person has ever taken aerobic classes prior. The moves were easy to follow on the easy ones but did get more challenging in the hard levels which makes it fun. I chose this video because I wanted to mix up my workouts and make them fun again.
Summary: I'll start by saying I don't own any Zumba videos, so I can't compare in that way. I do own a lot of other exercise videos and other dance games though. This one is one of the more effective aerobic workouts. The music is fine - most of it I'd never heard of before this game. The belt is easy to use. It's a little bit of a hassle to slide the remote in and out, but it is what it is. I like the options for different lengths of workouts or just doing single songs.
Summary: I've owned Zumba Fitness 2 since Christmas 2011, but I was really sick of playing the same songs repeatedly throughout each week. I finally got my hands on Zumba Fitness Core, and I'm extremely satisfied. These dance routines are much harder and more intense than what I'm used to. If you love sweat dripping from all over your body, then this is the version for you. If you're not used to Zumba, I would recommend you start off with the previous versions.
Summary: Graphics are improved over the previous version, although some of the fireworks cover up the "next step" cues. The belt to hold the Wii remote is tricky. If you perform certain steps correctly, it pushes the belt up off your hips. I am working on a retrofit. My favorite feature so far is that you are able to create your own play list. There are just some genres of music on here that I just don't enjoy.
Summary: I own Zumba Fitness 2 and wanted something to add to it, so I bought Zumba Core. I must say, the song choices on this are much better than 2. I enjoy dancing to familiar songs such as Karmin, Bob Marley, and Boogie Shoes (my fave). The only complaint I have is I preferred Zumba Fitness 2's graph style. Core has a line graph instead of the bar graph design of 2. I liked the bar because it was more visually pleasing to see my progress.
If you stick with this game, you will get great results.

Summary: I really like this game. I got this game because I wanted to amp up my physical routine, since I seemed to hit a plateau with my weight. While those Just Dance games do make my heart rate go up (depending on how many songs I do) when I do the Zumba, I burn afterwards. I feel my abs burning & my hips ache after I'm done. This tells me that I really am getting the full body workout. The music gets a lil' redundant, but the moves are definately effective!
