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 had other exercise games and was easy to navigate got this one in and was excited to start the program then came to realize it was hard to navigate. On top of all this it also was not accurate when scanning your body. I would not recomend this item mainly based off of the navigation. Selling item today.
Summary: You need to have plenty of space for this game. I have my Kinect on top of my TV and it has a hard time seeing me when I'm doing floor exercises. This game does have a lot of cool features, but I find the workout is a little slow, and set up is a little tricky. Personally I get a much better workout with Jillian Michaels work out videos. I recommend "30 Day Shred" or "Ripped in 30". But be ready to get your butt kicked by her every morning! You'll definitely see results.
Summary: I purchased this after reading reviews between this, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved and EA's Sports Active 2. Most reviews for EA's game focused on poor menu navigation and Your Shaped lacked a workout schedule. The end result is we bought the Biggest Looser. It gives you some very good workouts and rotates between a bunch of different exercises each session. You get a good workout with good variety and don't have much chance to get bored.
Summary: I read the reviews for this and looked forward to using it however I got so frustrated with the amount of time it took to log in to my daily workout that I gave up (and this was after an extraordinarily long time to set up my profile). The interface/menu were mostly unresponsive and it took me 20 minutes to just get past the front page having tried every type of hand movement imaginable!!
Summary: I bought this to add a little variety to my Kinect work-out routine. I already have Your Shape and really like it. I read a bunch of good reviews on Amazon for The Biggest Loser and the length and breadth of the programme seemed impressive. Oh dear. The manual boasts 10 different preset work-out routines, including 'Marathon Man' and 'Enlightenment.' I can't find them anywhere.
Summary: Is a very good idea for people who take working out seriously and for people who are quite fit, i would say this would be a great buy, but not for me, unfortunitly i thought i could use it for a nice gentle bit of Exercise as having a previous back injury thought it would help build up a little bit of lost muscle tone,but after about 5 mins i was just too sore and so only used it once, the game is very well thought out.
Poor interface, Its cheaper then the rest for a reason.

Summary: This programme is put together poorly, the onscreen menus ask you time after time the same questions, one of them being, are you Male or Female. My goldfish has better memory. If you are considering this as a fitness product, it does the job. However you spend more time customising your characteristics instead of going straight in to the fitness regime.
