This game is VERY difficult. I've been using this for a few days now and I am finding it very tricky to get to grips with. The 8 mini games are fun (although only a few use the Wii fit board) but I found myself thrashing my arms around with some of them trying to get the game to register my existence. The cardio boxing is my favourite part and it is great that you can choose to do a workout rather than short snippets like the Wii Fit (although you can choose to use the game this way too). I have two main quibbles with this game though. Firstly, is the level of fitness required. Even the most basic levels have you puffing after just a few minutes. I had to lie down after attempting the 1 minute 30 marathon! If you're not runnng full pelt (or cheating by swinging your arms up and down) the character refuses to move! My second quibble is that the routines are quite difficult to get to grips with. They don't give you long enough to get used to one part of the routine before moving on to the next. There is an option to go through the routine section by section with playback but this only seems to be available AFTER the routine and I can't see an option to then go back and have another go. Soooo frustrating. I am not a complete novice when it comes to dance so I was surprised at how difficult I found this.
Overall, if you want to work really, really hard and you are quick to pick things up, go for it. You'll love it. If you are looking for a fun and relaxed work out, stick with Wii Fit!

  The BEST workout game around.

This game is brilliant. I have tried the Zumba Wii game and thought it was rubbish - didn't respond properly, whereas this is really good. So much stuff to do so you never really get bored and it will have you dripping, especially the boxing - good sign of a good workout.

My favourite feature was the heart rate checks that they do during your session so you can see how well your body is working. The only downside is when doing skipping, it doesn't always jump when you want it to, but with everything else, you really don't mind.

  Im enjoying this game eventhough i have no rhythm :-)

I must confess that this was only a second option game, i was looking at buying just dance, and im glad i found the price too steep.
I have absolutely no rhythm and have found the dance routines a little difficult to master, but there is plenty to amuse me whilst i constantly step out of time, ie. the people taking part in the background!! is it me or are all the guy characters as camp as christmas?!! and there is also the intermittenet appearance of las vegas showgirls feathers and all, dancing away, i think this is down to level changes, im waiting to see who or what appears next, im thinking barry manilow singing coppacabana!!
SERIOUSLY NOW ....................... this is a good workout game i sweat but i am quite unfit, the annoying part is having to stop to take a pulse reading, im not too good at this so my heartrate goes right down and i find it difficult to get motivated halfway through.
The music/soundtrack is fantastic, the minigames are a nice interlude, the cardioboxing great fun - more my cuppa tea, but i do a mixture when i chose my programme, all in all i recommend this for a fun, dont take yourself too seriously workout.

  fantastic

I've got my fitness coach- get in shape and loved it, got a little bored after 4 nights a week for the last 6 months. I was just doing the cardio option so got abit samey, decided to give this one a try.

Ok, so only done this once lastnight and I suppose I wan't taking to to seriously, but...
I tried all the mini games and 3 or 4 dances I found it really good. The only thing was that some of the dances are just too fast, even on the beginners levels. I'm off ot try the set programme created for me...looking forward to it.

  love it!!!!!!

  Good fitness game

I love this game, it really gets your heart pumping and muscles working hard! There is a bit of a wait (loading time) between routines though but then i'm used to dancing along to the Zumba dvd. You can make up your own routines aswell as do preloaded ones. there's also fun mini games to play too!

It's a laugh to do and i'd recommend it to anyone

  The best fitness game

I have a lot of fitness games (all my fitness coaches and also EA sports 1 and 2, Wii fit), I even got my shape, but this is the best one for me. The music is good, the exercises are versatile, it's nice to dance and work on your condition at the same time. There is even boxing in here and jogging, but I like the dances the best.

The programme works also great, you steadily dance more every day. If you skip a day, no problem. Two little minuses: the grapics don't look very good on a 50" tv and you work overall on your condition, so you don't do sit ups f.E. (but this you can do with the other games). Money well spend, especially since the price dropped Euro 10,00 the last 6 months.
