Summary: Ok, so I got this to help lose weight. I have knee problems due to a combat injury, and working out is required but painful in order to lose weight. This routine is HEAVY on knee use, meaning I cannot use it much without pain (but I do try). That being said, almost all cardio is heavy on knee use. The routines are effective if you stick to them. What bothers me is the "appearance" of the people/avatars that they use to represent you.
Summary: I have tried this for a few weeks. The sensor works pretty good, but, you need to be a large distance away from it -- like 14 to 16 feet. I learned that the hard way, when doing the fitness test. The camera was fine until I had to go to the floor. It only picked a part of me. There is no pause, so it decided I could not keep up and ended the test. That meant doing it over again! There really is not a back button. The instructions are so minimal.
Summary: It's not considering the floor exercises, the kinect shows the person invisible when you are lying or sitting on the floor hence the scores reduce n actual calorie burnt is not taken into account. The other drawback is most of the exercises you need to turn yourself away from the tv screen, that's either turn towards your left or right and would not be able to follow the instructions, it's a strain to keep looking at tv while turning and exercising.
Summary: I LOVE this game. If I am too lazy to go out and do a work out at the gym I just pop this game in my xbox and it gives a really good work out! You can do pretty much any work out. Some work outs require the big ball, but majority of them you don't need anything! One thing i like is you can do yoga. That is always a place. The only thing that really disappoints me is because of my size the kinect won't register that I am doing things properly or even trying to.
Summary: I initially didn't get this game because of its age (2010) and negative reviews (mostly about the controls), and went with the Ubisoft title which was newer (2012) and shinier. I'll save most of my thoughts about Your Shape for that review, but suffice to say it was frustrating in its own way. So I decided to try Biggest Loser after all, and I'm really glad I did. What I love most about Biggest Loser is that it feels like an actual guided fitness program.
Summary: Though I love Bob and Jillian, this workout did not help me shed the pounds like I thought I would. It did put on muscle, which helps, but I found myself gaining weight. I didn't like the fact that there wasn't enough cardio in it.
Summary: I was so excited to get this and start my workouts but regret every dollar I spent on this game. The first of many problems is the navigation. It is very difficult to navigate around this game from setting your weight to picking a game. The Icons seem to push your hand off them continuously before your selection can load. The body scanner gives you extremely large measurements for the neck. Another issues are the workouts.
Decent for the money. Nice work out, but game could be a little better.

Summary: The game is pretty competitive and motivating, but the same phrases get old. Work outs are great but sometimes (especially if the lighting isn't perfect) you drop off of the sensor and you don't get points for the workouts. Overall good work out game.
Summary: This is a great game if your looking for something to do in your home and get a good workout while taking your time and being reminded everyone has limits and don't go farther than you can. Great exercise game!
