Good but not Great
on March 17, 2011
I'll be brief. Your Shape works well in that it does make you sweat. I end my workouts with little doubt that my body is getting the exercise I was looking for.
The flaw in this game is that the Kinect system itself doesn't "see" everything. I could clearly see myself on the TV in perfect time with my 'partner' yet the game kept telling me I was not in sync. Not only is that frustrating but if you are trying to complete 10 reps and it thinks you are out of sync for 5 of those, you end up doing 15.
Along with that little big of annoyance is the fact that mid way through a set, you cannot pause or stop. I find this an odd thing to not be able to do in the 'game' because if you got a cramp, fell or even walked away it thinks you are out of sync and keeps going and going and going.
Word of advice if you chose to buy this, and I am not unhappy that I did. Wear tight clothing. Anything too baggy and Kinect can't tell your legs from your waist.
