I've never done any Zumba before in my life, but I was looking for something that was a more advanced aerobic workout as the EA Active 2 aerobics was just a little too boring and basic for me.
I was so excited to use it, but the actual menus were so frustrating it almost made me give up, there is little to no explanation of the moves, even the step by step tutorial was pointless as once again there was no spoken word of the steps or of the countdowns or anything like EA Active 2 does. It also jumps from really slow to really fast moves without any explanation of changes in movement/time. I know that it would help to have some basic dance moves down but they could at least have taken into consideration those who don't have time/money to go to Zumba classes but want to join in on the fun.
The game is also really jumpy, it often skips and the music on our TV sounds horrible, even though we have a newish tv, it just sounds really tinny without the bass turned up.
The belt has a tendancy to slip down whilst you are moving about and once or twice the controller has flown across the room. I don't think that my PS3 picks up the motion all that well either and so I spend most of my time in the 'yellow zone' with occasional blips into green :/
I'm sure this game would be much better on the Kinect, or if you know the dances. I'm just going to persevere and learn them myself by repeating them over and over till I get my monies worth!
I just kind of wish it had more of the excellent features of EA Active 2 on Zumba (calorie counting/HRM etc).
