Ugh... it's like this Zumba kicked my dog.,
This review is from: Zumba Fitness World Party - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
Let me start by saying I rarely leave reviews and I LOVE the Zumba fitness games. I started with the Wii versions and have continued with the Xbox versions. I rave about them and have lost upwards of 90lbs playing them (not all at once). Most recently, they helped me drop about 4 dress sizes so I could look amazing at my wedding.
That said I hate Zumba Fitness World Party.
Sure, there are a lot of things to love. The graphics make are insane by comparison and make it much easier to grasp the moves. The songs and dances are all different, which is great since I get really burned out on the old ones after I Zumba like crazy to get down to my ideal size. However, if I wanted better graphics and different songs, I would (and have), bought one of the 1,000 of other dance games like Dance Central and Dance Now to name a few.
The thing I loved about Zumba is that I could strap on weights, still do the moves, lose weight (fast), AND tone up. With Zumba Fitness World Party that isn't possible. I'm not talking lots of weights. Like 2.5lbs on each leg and .5lbs on each arm. I think the Dance Now games are much better than the Zumba Fitness games (plus I know and like the songs on them) IF I just want to Dance. I don't just want to dance. I want to get in shape. So far Zumba has always helped me do that, which is why I love them and swear by them. But for whatever reason they decided to speed up the routines, shorten the songs, and throw out the fitness aspect in this release; making it impossible to toss on the weights and not blow out a knee. This makes it about as worthless (or more so even) as all the other dance games that look better and have songs I like. Believe me, if I thought I could accomplish as much playing them as I do playing Zumba Fitness; I would in a heart beat. I've tried. No dice.
If you are like me, you'll buy it anyway and I don't blame you. I did. I just hope these reviews serve as some kind of feedback so that next time they come out with a game I'll still care.
