Really fun and a great workout!,
This review is from: Zumba Fitness - Kinect - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
My husband and I just bought the Kinect and Zumba Fitness game today and I have to say I love the game! I don't usually review products but I felt compelled to do so since the Kinect version of this game got so many bad reviews on Amazon and I didn't want people to get turned off by that. I didn't have the problem of the game signing me off when I did turns as other reviewers did nor did I have an issue with the game not recognizing my movements, the feedback (red circles that appear around your shoulders, knees, etc.) seemed right on. I had a blast playing this game, the dance moves are sexy and fun, the music is great and on top of it all you get a great workout (I was pretty sweaty at the end and I'm fairly athletic). There was an X-Box update on the game that took place the moment I popped it into my console so perhaps the issues others had with the game have been resolved? I skipped over the tutorial and went straight to the game, starting at the beginner party level, yes the moves start to get more challenging as you keep going through the routine but the moves are repeated and I found that I was able to catch on pretty quickly. I'm looking forward to using Zumba as my morning workout on mornings I don't go to the gym and seeing what the results are! (Plus I may even be able to get the hubbie to join in, get him learning some new dance moves!) ;-)

I just tried the demo and was exhausted after the first 2 songs (on Beginner!). I had no issues with the game not recognizing what I was doing but then again, I gold star quite regularly on Dance Central Hard Mode so coordination is not an issue ;). In terms of sweat factor, I haven't encountered a game that made me move this hard and made me sweat this much. I think I'll buy the full game and workout at least twice a week on it.
