Summary: At $9.99 , it's still $9.94 too expensive. You can play this game in any room anywhere without owning it or an xbox...just pretend to swim and tire your arms out and save the money. Just an awful game........awful.
Summary: A terrible idea, I know that Michael Phelps is a fantastic athlete, but do a game? really?, the biggest problem is the gameplay, imitate that you swimming, but the water? this is a terrible idea for 505 Games, Michael Phelps: Push the Limit is a bad game, the problems? Gameplay, camera, sound, modes of game, the only good are the graphics, but be all. This title need be in the ocean deep... of all the kinect videogames.
Summary: First, I'd like to say that there is a patch (update) for this game that automatically installs when the disc is inserted into the 360. I think this may have fixed some of the problems that the first reviewers had. On to the game, do you like swimming in mid-air??? Not me, but it's a workout, and anything that makes working out fun, I'm game. Sure, I can go to the pool in my condo, but I can't race, and hype up the crowd (well maybe a couple of senior citizens).
A surprisingly good Kinect fitness game that's both entertaining and a decent workout

Summary: I admit, like most of you probably are, I was really, really skeptical when I first heard of the game Michael Phelps: Push the Limit for the Xbox. After all, swimming is something done horizontally in the water, while playing video games is something done vertically in the air. But surprisingly, they actually made it work. It's a very enjoyable game--provided you go in with the right expectations. You're not going to become a better swimmer because of it.

Summary: I'll be the first to admit that when I first heard about a Kinect swimming game, I thought it was a joke. I'll also be the first to admit after many hours of playing Michael Phelps Push the Limit, this game is no joke. To be even more specific, if you are looking for a fun game that is addicting and gets your body moving, then Michael Phelps Push the Limit might just be the game you are looking for. This is not a collection of mini-games or cheesy distractions.
