WAY too touchy

Summary: The workouts were good and worked you hard but the game was so touchy that it wouldn't document my progress. Although it wasn't documenting me, I continued to do the workouts even though it took about 10 minutes just to get to them because it wasn't picking up my hand movements. I eventually stopped using the game because it got too annoying being told a million times by the game that I was doing it wrong even though in actuality, it wasn't picking me up at all so it was...
Summary: Took 2 hours to find the exercise routine workout. Same with EA's game will not schedule a routine that fits your schedule, however unlike EA's game it still has the option to workout, however it took 2 hours of wading though menus to find it. The routines are no where near as fun or exciting as EA's workout.
Summary: We do not enjoy this game. It is one of the most difficult to navigate of all the kinect games we have gotten. The workouts are on loops and I ended up doing the same 15 minute workout twice and it was about to have me start the same thing again to finish my 40 min workout and I quit. Once you get in the workouts, they are on level with what you want, but getting to what you want was really hard.
Summary: I am not impressed with this game at all. The thing that frusted me first was the menu tabs. They are just icons and when try to go over them to see that they are it selectes them. I spend more time bouncing around doing things I dont want to. Then I have to reset my character and routine everytime I log in. It doesnt save it. I hate having to stand to the side of the tv not in front of it.
Summary: I want to like this game. When it works, you get good workouts. But the getting it to work is the tough part. Here are the problems I've had with it: - Corrupted my wife's profile after 3 months of working out - Skips the middle of workouts sometimes for no reason - Sometimes exits a workout for no reason - Hand controls are at very tricky to get right - Once you are signed in as one profile, sometimes impossible to switch. Perhaps the biggest, stupidest part.
Summary: It seems there is no pleasing this game. It wants me to stretch further and reach higher when I am "giving it all that I've got". Being a petite woman there is only so far these short arms will reach. I no longer have time to go to the gym daily and wanted an at home workout. It's not what I expected.
Summary: I have three Kinect exercise games: The Biggest Loser, Your Shape Fitness Evolved and EA Sports Active 2. The Biggest Loser has a nice collection of exercises, probably the most variety of the three exercise games I've used. And you can tune it to your fitness level pretty easily. The tracking is OK, but not great(EASA2 is better, Your Shape is worse).
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: I'm glad I borrowed this game before buying it. It's incredibly lame. It took us like 20 minutes just to set up the avatar for me. My daughters and I then tried the box-fit. We tried the hardest level. We didn't even break a sweat. And Bob's form and instructions were truly horrific. We then tried one of the Challenges. Super weird and useless. Pass on this one.
