Summary: This game is a real workout. This will certainly prepare you for a fight. It might be too strenuous for many older folks since it requires a lot of movements. I'm a middle-aged guy in average shape and I was pretty sore after playing it the first couple of times. The menus are a challenge to navigate without a controller. I recommend stretching before playing the game.
Summary: Yes, the storyline is garbage and some of the moves do not register. However, the basic moves usually work. For now, it's the best fighting game for getting a cardio workout that I've found. It's fun to play against a friend as long as you both know that some moves will not always be recognized. Unlike Wii boxing, there is some strategy here by using ducks, power-ups, blocks, punch low or high, and using counter-moves like kicks.
Kick, punch & sweat- Great cardio work out! (fit 47yr. M)

Summary: Added this to my cardio routine when Santa brought an Xbox into our home- easy, fun way to work up a sweat quickly, plus the game play has me moving and kicking (high and hard) repeatedly in ways I never would without the video interface. Tiring for kids under 12 to play for too long, but HIGHLY recommend it for fitness oriented parents.
Summary: Good for just messing around with friends. The story is good for learning the moves but not much else. There's really not a lot of moves or skill involved, sorta like a button masher that uses your body. Great exercise if you get into it though.
Have fun with friends and family, and get a slight workout in!

Summary: This game was cheaper than all of the stores when I bought it here on Amazon. It has flaws, but can be a lot of fun. Once you get a feel for the moves, which are a bit weird, you can start really beating on your friends and family. Give it a try!
