This review is from: Gold's Gym Dance Workout - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
First off, for all those that have posted above me, you CAN slow down and loop the segment you're having trouble with. It will repeat, in VERY slow motion, until you get the hang of the feet and arm movements. You can do this in the practice mode. Yes, what you do with the left foot you'll do with the right,so get ready to mirror your moves on the other side of your body- thats part of the latin dance!
Is it as fun as just dance? No, but its not intended to be compared to it either. this is a workout game, just like the title says. It is fun, but the main focus is on calarie burn, tone, and weightloss. Not to say that you can't have fun, I just don't think thats the primary focus of a workout game.
Its fun if you're wanting to learn some real dance steps, but be prepared to spend some time learning if you aren't familiar with Latin dance. I completed my first workout today, and it was short yet sweaty!! I found myself wanting more of the dancing, so I went back and learned the basic steps.
this game also incorporates the moves into different- FULL LENGTH- songs! I had to pause the game mid way through the 2nd song- I had to get some water and take a break! I love the dance games (just dance, DDR, and the ea active games). This will be a nice variation to my wii workouts!
If you find this game around the $20- $25 range and you love to dance, grab it.
