Too glitchy to work UPDATE: better UPDATE 2: Sick of it

Summary: As a beginner to this type of exercise I can say that I really felt the routines were very good and challenging. I could instantly feel some tightness in my mid-section and additional strength in my legs.
Summary: Garbage, doesn't work. I got past the annoying freeze issues, but this just doesn't register well with the Kinect which is REALLY frustrating. It misses a lot of stuff. The Kinect clearly just doesn't do well with sit ups and push ups.
Summary: I specifically waited until after the Xbox Live problem that had plagued early reviewers was resolved before I bought this product. Unfortunately, that was only one of a host of issues.

Despite showing me a very accurate looking 3d image of myself performing lots of beautiful push-ups, jumping jacks, or jabs, the game for some reason does not recognize or...
Summary: This is a great idea and when they manage to make the software work and not hang every 30 seconds I'll be happy to buy that version. As it is the only thing it does is frustrate me which is kind of the opposite of a fitness programme in the first place.
