Not for me.

Summary: The game is okay as far as the "fun" factor goes. Some of the songs are good, I can create my own playlists depending on my intensity. I also like that I do get a decent calorie burn for the 40 minutes I play. The crappy parts that makes this game pretty "eh" include: - The stupid waist band where you put the controller in is fairly uncomfortable.. It slides around, it feels stupid, and overall I don't like having it on.
Summary: I bought this to do on my off days from Zumba class. I wish I would not have spent the money It is hard to get a good work out in or see if you are doing something that right. The computer will give you stars but then you will do exactly the same next time and you get no stars. In talking with my doctor and zumba instructor they encourage weights and regular exercise instead. So next time I won't spend.
Summary: The dances are really upbeat, and you'll get a good workout if you keep up with it. Unfortunately I cannot get past the really super run of the mill music. Was hoping for some actual sounds from the respective countries where "World Party" takes you. There is plenty of great instrumental dance music out there, but creativity was very underutilized. Shallow taste.
Summary: My first zumba game was zumba 2. I still love it. This new version has a few good updates, like it tells you how long the class is so you have some idea before you select it. But the different songs are very short so there is a lot of in between time waiting for the next to load. I don't know if it is all that delay or just that the songs and workouts aren't as good, but I just don't feel like I am getting as good of a workout as with zumba 2.
Summary: I bought this DVD after reading great reviews. I was disappointed. The music selection is great and motivates you to move. But the dance clips are a few minutes long. I was hoping to do 60 minutes of one style of dance. But it doesn't do that. You can customize your own class by selecting different dance clips so you get up to 60 minutes, but each clip is only a few minutes long and not enough of the same style clips to make 60 minutes of your favorite style.
Summary: I was really excited to try this but I returned it for two reasons...the main one being the belt and controller hold. It was cumbersome and kept wanting to fold up while I was moving. I tried ditching it but you can't hold the controller in your hand and play the game the way it's designed to be played. Beyond that, I just didn't find the actual set up of the dance program to be that user-friendly and fun.
