Doesn't flow great

Summary: I love the real time coaching and feedback. However, I was really hoping for the ability to link my suggested workouts together and be able to combine them to create a good workout routine that lasts an 45 minutes which includes time for stretching. Also, I think the stretching is under emphasized her with only having yoga as the stretching option. This is just not good enough stretches for the workout you could be doing.
Summary: My husband and I have been using the previous release for about 18 months. While we really do enjoy it we were ready for something more challenging and, of course, something with a bit more variety. We couldn't wait to test it out as soon as it arrived. We found that are far more options than the previous one and we tried a little bit of everything. Heart beats were up, sweat was accumulating and accomplishment definitely puffed our chests!
Summary: I'm reading reviews of kinect and kinect games, in order to reach a decision about buying it. But when I discover that I have to purchase points in addition to the game, it turns me off from kinect!
Pros: Sounds like fun, but...
Cons: You mean you have to purchase MS points for some of the activities, in addition to buying the game?
Disappointed in some features, have to pay for some workouts

Summary: The game is cool and the workouts get you sweating, but you can't make a custom workout. There are some workouts you can't do unless you buy them using Xbox Credits/Money, including a cool down which is one of the most important parts of a workout. For over $40 all the workouts should be available, and some workout are 'sponsored' by Gatorade and Humana, which seems odd.
Your Shape is good for the Kinect but is it worth buying?

Excerpt: Time flies when you’re having fun and Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 is the next development in getting the body you want from the comfort of your own home. It feels just like yesterday that we were all raving about the brilliant Wii Fit where you could measure and track your weight and find out your own body age. However, with Your Shape on the Kinect, you can now throw those sweaty Wii remotes out the window!
Pros: good variation, gets you in shape, good if self - conscious
Cons: not the same as sports outside, novelty value
Summary: I was very disappointed with this product after all the Xbox hype I have read It was just too much hassle and frustrating to figure out and run on the Xbox. I found the start up menu just kept taking me round in ever decreasing circles login ,logout,login and eventually getting the software to run seemed to be more luck than purpose and then it was just really boring routines to choose from that were very small images on the screen.The ubisoft telephone helpdesk was...
Summary: I have owned this game for just over a month now and have played it every day bar 3 for upto 2 1/2 hours a day. I love to exercise and keep fit, having lost a lot of weight 4 years ago I want to keep it off and use home exercise games like this to help me do so. This game I found great at first, I presumed my inability to stay in rhythm was down to inexperience and that I would get better. Hmmm. No.
