5.0 out of 5 stars has it's hiccups but absolutely a great product, November 6, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
For anyone who is wanting to start or maintain a fitness program you should get this game. First I'll tell you the bad things about the game. The visuals aren't real pretty to look at. Especially since it's a Xbox360 game, cmon!!! The motion sensor seems to be a bit too sensitive when you navigate the menus. You'll find yourself over-pointing to something on the screen you didn't want to choose. This problem even hurts the tracking the game does with your workout and will tell you from time to time that your not doing things the right way. It takes some getting used to and you can overcome it, but still you should know about it. Here's what the game does right. Once you deal with the clunky setup things become surprisingly easy every time you log in. The kinect recognizes your face so all you have to do is start your fitness program. It sets you up with a body scan that is pretty accurate and can let you choose to either follow a recommended plan or choose one of your own liking. The exercises will have you breaking a sweat and working hard to keep up. Besides the list of over 120 different exercises the game also provides you with an in depth support network to keep you on track for your goals. Fitness challenges, video diaries, healthy tips, healthy recipes, scheduled workouts, caloric intake suggestions for your specific goals, and scheduled weigh-ins all leave this game in a category of it's own. If this sounds like a game it isn't. Think of it as more of a tool to help utilize your fitness goals. If that sounds like something you are looking for then do yourself a favor and buy this game today.

You have one of the only positive reviews and since Im planning on getting it regardless Ill ask you. Does the game follow the shows format at all. Me and the wife want to use this and think it would be fun to compete biggest loser style. Do you do competitive weighins where it will track who lost the biggest percentage. If yes, does it base it on the body scan or does it ask you to input your wight on your own. Is there an online feature where you can get in a fitness group with people on your firends list and compete weekly with them. Thanks for the review. It sounds like it is working well for you!

you do have weekly weigh ins and have to input your weight manually. the body scans can be adjusted if they do not scan correctly. they measure only your height, neck, waist, and hips.
