Summary: I've taken many Zumba classes & I realize this is based on Latin Dance but the song selection is very poor. Not many modern songs to choose from, so my workout gets old using this game. The game overall is good, there's even a break down mode to help with teaching the dance moves. But, I've not really used it much since b/c of the songs. If you like Latin music a lot I recommend, you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Nothing to brag about. You really need to be good at dancing to enjoy or use this from my perspective. You get lost and stay lost during the songs from the momentary cues they give and the incomplete "learn the steps" selections. Pros - Can choose classes of different sizes which is good for a workout.
Summary: The game is not too involving, the moves are quite average and the songs aren't too great either. The graphics could also use a huge improvement, by golly this is 2013, the graphics should look like crazy good.
The exercises are still good but achievements are bugged

Summary: I rated it only okay because the calories do not calculate correctly on the Xbox 360 which means that getting some of the achievements would be practically impossible. For example you will do a routine that should burn 100 or 200 calories but the game says you burned 12 calories. There hasn't been a patch yet to fix this as of the writing of this review.
Summary: I ordered the game, it game early in the mail which was a plus but the service wasn't the problem the game doesn't seem to follow the moves you make that well for the Kinect and says your doing it wrong when your actually following along with the moves pretty well.
Summary: I really, truly wanted to like this game. I am a huge fan of Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 and love the idea of using the Kinect to have fun/get into shape. Pros: Beautiful graphics, nice dancing Cons: You must like dancing to all types of music and looking like a pole dancer (as a man - I wasn't a fan of this). The idea of dancing to get in shape is a great one as I used to dance a lot growing up in NY and I was rail thin.
Summary: I purchased Zumba Fitness for the Kinect last month, in hopes that it would be better than the Playstation 3 version. I enjoy playing the PS3 version of it, but dislike having to either wear the strap-on belt to hold the motion controller (which never stays in one place on my body), or else I have to hold the controller the entire time that I'm dancing.
Not my kind of music!!! (I know Zumba is Latin inspired)

Summary: First let me say that the shipping was extremely fast. I'm a prime member so I get 2 day shipping but this product arrived the next day! I was extremely excited to receive this as fast as I did so I could start my New Year's resolution of getting into shape. First the pros: - This was very easy to setup and start zumba-ing. - Visually very appealing. - The steps are difficult if you've never done this before (which I hadn't) but not impossible with a little practice.
