Summary: 3) the Game modes were frankly not fun at all. There wasn't a single game where I thought, well at least this is fun. None of its fun. All of the game types are frankly a let down. 4) This is the only kinect game we have that doesn't track you right. The other 4 kinect games track you just fine, but in a game where you have to have precise movements to keep in rhythm with your trainer, it rarely kept track of me, my feet would disappear most often, regardless of how far...
Pros: So I read a review about this game,several, hearing that it was a good game to get gamers off the couch, and was friendly even for fat gamers who frankly don't have gym memberships. Well, that was all way off, the primary reason I don't have a gym membership is I don't want a trainer barking at me, and I don't want to look at myself from the fifty different mirrors in the room. Well if those are two reasons you don't go to a gym, then this game will turn you off as mu...
Cons: 1) The fitness and training instructors are almost exactly like what you would find a gym, only you can turn your TV down at least. Still it was in many ways less helpful then in a gym. When I finished an exercise set the voice would say things like thats not what we're looking for, or clearly you could do better. Well what's better? I mean I spent 20 minutes telling you all about my body type, exercise level and desires, you can't give me some feedback on how well I ...
Summary: It works you out but it does not really work out your tummy area. It mainly works your thighs, arms, and bottom. I bought this game to work out my whole body. And lose all my Baby Fat. The game gets boring after awhile. I've been playing it for two weeks and it has not done anything for me to continue going on with this certain game. I'm planning on returning it to the Store and getting a different game. That works on the Tummy too.
Summary: For a fitness game I thought it was going to burn a lot of calories... umm no... not at all. The game moves really slow and the exercises are very limited. I traded this game in and got Dance Central. Lots more fun to play and burns way more calories.
Summary: Thoroughly unimpressed with this game. It is awkward to navigate, and almost impossible to hear any instructions. The font is incredibly difficult to read when up close, let alone when actually using the game, and it seems to have a lot of issues with sensor recognition; the moment you move, it loses you and doesn't track your movement. I'd had such high hopes for this game, bit instead I am thoroughly disappointed.
Summary: It seems this game has just been created to exploit the lastest boom in home exercise. When you first start the game you are made to follow a trainer to do exercises to the beat of music... this continues through the game. no stretching before or after workouts... there are a few mens health workouts (rubbish) and for some reason nivea,. The game was just made for these companies to get there monies worth.
Summary: I'd looked at all the fitness type games on Kinect when I finally gave in a bought the device. The reviews of Your Shape seemed fairly positive, the game really irritated me though. The control method is awful, you hold your hand over an option and then have to move slightly to the second button that appears and hold again to select. I nearly gave up just trying to browse the menus.
Summary: First the voice is grating and gets on my pip, the game is clearly written with someone who is already fit in mind to start with, so whats the point, there is no way to slow down the routines to fit your speed, it assumes you live in a building constructed with reinforced floors or you just dont give a monkeys about the people in the apartment below you.
Great potential but broken due to floorspace requirement

Summary: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Don't buy unless you have at least 3.5m of free space in front of the Kinnect sensor. I had hoped that this would be useful for both myself and the wife to add aerobic exercise to the resistance training we do at the gym. But having got it home, fired it up and going into some training sets I quickly realized that we'd have to get rid of every piece of furniture in the living room to have enough space to use this.
