Excerpt: The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout mixes a fantastic franchise with the Kinect on the Xbox 360. The one knock against exercise games on the Wii is it is easy to cheat. People that do so are only cheating themselves. Since Kinect follows the skeleton of the player, there is no way to cheat while playing The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout. The end result is I got the most intense video game work out I have ever gotten.
Conclusion: It has a wide variety of exercises and intensity levels to choose from, and it will kick your butt if you’re willing to push yourself. Despite a few hiccups, the Kinect tracking works well, and overall, it’s a great workout game. That being said – it’s really all about the workouts, so don’t pick this one up unless you’re in the market for some exercise!
Popular TV show's exercises are fun and effective on Kinect.

Summary: Parents need to know that The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout is a clever "exer-gaming" title that challenges you to work out, eat well and "weigh in" -- just like the television show . It uses the Kinect for Xbox 360 peripheral, which means you don't hold anything in your hands when playing, and the camera and sensors monitor your movements in real-time.
Excerpt: Do you fancy having a few ultra-healthy Americans scream at you via your TV set? If so, try out The Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout, American TV channel NBC’s offshoot for the Kinect. For those who are unaware of the show, it is the sort of TV programme where you sit on your couch and laugh at the fatties as they pass out after a few minutes jogging and need an airlift to get them to the weigh-in whilst telling yourself that will never be you as you eat another choccy...
Excerpt: Imagine being asked to create a new concept for a Massively Multiplayer Online game (MMO). What would you think? Where do you begin? Considering that MMOs are hardly thin on the ground these days, with new games cropping up (and dying out) with startling regularity, it’s clear that what every good MMO requires is a catchy hook, to make it a winning proposition to the willing cash-paying punter. Ideally, it needs to be both appealing to children and adults.

Excerpt: As your body is the controller, Kinect certainly has many advantages over its rivals when it comes to exercise games. In fact, there are so many fitness games available that possessing a gym membership is almost pointless if you have an Xbox 360 and Kinect. Disadvantages obviously come in the form of the amount of space that is required to give your body that full fat burning workout.
