Summary: First the system doesn't recognize it when entered from an already logged in ID. So the first thing you have to do every day is re-tell it who you are. I hate doing things twice especially when that is one thing that is sOOOO slow. Then about every fourth time it forgets I've created a "person" and makes me do it again. Waste of time. Why doesn't it just use my X-box login and avatar? Stupid game.
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: 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.
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: Let me say that the workouts on this game are teriffic. You can tailor the intensity to your level of fitness, however getting to the workingouts is the most frustrating thing in the world. The floating tracking ball is the most rediculous way to try and get to where you need to go. It will often float on to the wrong icon and select it before you have a chance correct it. It is NOT user friendly.
Summary: I just started using this, its seem to be a little complicated geting everything set up. I have only done the circut training so far. I put it on modreate and that seems to be really easy. I'm a beginer. I'm not sure if this game is worth the money or all the hype. I feel there might be better ones out there.
Summary: As said in the title you need ALOT of space to play at least 6ft by 6ft. I lose nearly every challenge because the sensor wont read me. And I lose alot of score on the fitness routines as well. I'll be following it perfectly and it will say something about how I am not trying, then I will get angry and do something random and occasionally the bars will turn green again showing that I am doing it right when clearly I am not...
Summary: So, being a really big fan of workout games in general. I was really disappointed with this release. Trust me, I didn't play the game for a minute and come to this conclusion. I gave it a fair shot over a two week period. First off, the sensor reads you extremely poorly. There were times I wash matching the trainer and it would not pick up. During some of the challenge games, It will not read your kicks.
Summary: I will skip my opinions about the difficulty to control as others have already covered that in their reviews. I did spend an hour standing in the living room trying to create my avatar only on the last step to hover over a button with a chasing arrow to rotate the avatar only to find out that button is a "randomizer" so my hour of work was lost to a random mix of hair, eye and clothing colors.
