I wish I could say I was a fan of the people who developed her video games. Back in 2009, Majesco released Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum for the Wii. Over 600,000 of us bought a copy. I'd say over 599,000 of us were disappointed. The game was clunky, had a terrible user interface, and committed the cardinal sin of motion games--it didn't detect motion. The 2010 and 2011 versions weren't much better.
Now that the Jillian brand is making a new start on the Xbox, I made a conscious effort to forget the past and approach this game with fresh eyes. The game does has some aspects that are terrific and even innovative. But I also saw some of the same old habits coming up.
The first thing I noticed when I started up the game is that you need room. A LOT of room. While other games like Kinect Sports and Dance Central can still work (if not optimally) when you're 7-8 feet from the TV, Jillian Michaels is completely unusable unless you have a minimum of 10 feet, plus a very clear view of the floor and plenty of room from side to side. I spent 20 minutes moving furniture around until I could get it to work to some degree. It would have been nice if they gave an option for people with limited space to skip certain exercises or do them on the "honor" system.
You're greeted by Jillian and you "wave" to begin. You're then taught how to navigate the menus. The use of the Kinect to navigate the menus is not one of the better implementations I've seen; they chose not to use a cursor, which meant some awkwardness in getting to some menu options.Read more ›
Due to some reviews, I was concerned when I bought this that it wouldn't work right because my kinect configuration is less than ideal (my kinect is kind of in a corner with practically no space on one side and a little space on the other. I've played several games where I really wanted a lot more space). However, I think that while JMFA is not perfect, it works pretty well. Here are some tips if you're having problems:
- reconfigure your kinect! There's even an option for it in the game.
- reduce natural light as much as possible. My room gets a ton of natural light, and though I pulled shades and turned on the lamps, I noticed a marked difference between playing in the day and playing at night. Daytime workouts were still possible though, just expect to use the xbox controller to navigate the menus (which doesn't really bother me...I hate menu nav in all my kinect games, it's always slower)
- watch your arm placement! I noticed this when I was doing my side lunges (which mainly work your legs). I didn't have my arms up like Jillian, but as soon as I got them up there, it started counting my lunges.
- stand in the center of the square. When you look at your avatar onscreen, you'll notice it's standing on a gray square.Read more ›
The game idea is great. You can basically choose to either workout or do a virtual parkour, where you have to race against time and perform different exercises. Sounds awesome, doesn't it?
I also liked the whole Tomb Raider approach and since it is none violent I guess it's going to be cool for my little nephews to play with. Their marketing worked great on me.
Here come the buyer's remorse though:
Once you pop in the disc, you're in for a real slap in the face.....you will need to navigate through the menu to get the game started....oh boy, what a nightmare! At first I thought I bought a broken game and believe me that the same though occurred to me several times when I gave the game more tries. The menu controls and the motion-sensoring are so jacked up that you will often select the wrong option and you better get used to backing to the previous screen a bunch of more times. I have about five Kinect games on my shelf and this is by far the one with the most frustrating controls.
Once you manage to start a game you notice how bad the graphics are. For a gamer like me this was like going all retro and firing up my old Super-NES. This could have been an online marketplace game on xbox live, why waste packaging or a disc on this?!
The game itself plays okay and to my surprise the exercises are challenging and fun. However, some of the motions do not get picked up right, so it might be very possible that will get stuck at one or the other obstacle for longer than necessary. Forget about beating your best times for a trail, when you have to repeat the same motion over and over again because the sensor is not able to pick up your moves.Read more ›
