  Okay - but the menu is a nightmare!

| | See all GingerRogers's reviews (3)

The actual workout bits of this game are great, and you can vary them according to your own fitness, the HUGE problem with it is the menu. Once you've set up you own profile (which takes forever), I expected to switch the game on and do a workout every day - NO chance! It gives you diet tips and wants you to input your weight and how many calories you've eaten - All I want to do is (gentle)exercise!!
Not go round all the houses.....

I only just got this game but already I know it was a great purchase.

Im from the UK so never saw the show but I heard good reviews so thought I would give it a try.

You can select the length you would like for your routine and you are given a structured workout which winds down nicely with a variety of stretches at the end.

Throughout you are given tips on how to do the moves better and therefore benefit more from the exercise.

Only rated 4 as I am new to it and have yet to see if it makes any change to me ahead of my wedding in 5 months!

  Good Value

I'm really pleased with this game. Ok, the menu system is a bit confusing and inputing your details is clunky, as it goes to fast when using your hands to select up and down for your weight/height etc! But the workouts are good and the sensor picks you up well, forcing you to get the motions correct.

I agree with other people; the constant "keep up" and "keep in time" prompts are annoying when you are in step, but it's not a huge pain. It gives you a variety of programs and intensity settings and tracks your progress. And despite being a averagely packaged game the contents is good! Probably better fitness games but it's worth it if you want to lose weight and not pay 40quid.

  Great content but doesn't always deliver

| | See all frh1987's reviews (1)

I've lost patience with the game a little, I've been playing it for about 3 weeks, and time after time it says 'follow the trainer' when I am moving at exactly the same pace as 'Bob' or 'Jillian'. I have stopped playing numerous times because it gets too frustrating hearing 'keep up' or 'move a little faster' then when i do so it says 'slow down don't rush it'. When selecting the options and so on, it takes a while for the item to be selected and the cursor moves even when my hand is still. I have never been able to complete a challenge because of this either.
It is a shame because the content of the game is good, great workout moves, really challenging, and a lot of fun, but the overall quality of the game could be improved.
I am considering trading it in for something else, which I didn't expect to do at all.

  The Biggest Loser = Hard Workout

| | See all Billy1992's reviews (1)

This disc gives you a hard workout, and helps you exercise very well. The game menu is slightly confusing but ok once you know what all the sections mean. I wouldn't call it a game because it isn't very fun, just a good workout. For those who want achievements this isn't the game for you. Overall a good buy for a New Year Workout and HELP BUST THOSE POUNDS!!

  Quality Game

  Bargin

| | See all jacamber's reviews (7)

Because of price was put off, but this is a fantastic bargin for those wanting to lose weight, becasue you can see yorself doing the exercise you know you are doing it right. A Kinect New Year essential to tackle over indulgence over Christmas all for price of a tacky fittness DVD you will not regret it

  Great game, great price!

Really good, much better than the older wii version we have. I bought this for the wife for X-Mas as she liked the US show and this is a good tie-in. You are shown on-screen next to your trainer so you can see how you are doing. Well worth the money.
