don't buy it!!,
This review is from: Quick Yoga Training - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
Do not buy this game!!! I recieved it as a gift. I thought, Oh, I love doing yoga and it says it has voice recognition and hands free operation. This will be great. Or, so I thought. Not only is this the most frustrating game I've ever played but when I contacted the makers(Ubisoft) of the game, wanting to know how to unlock the voice recognition and hands free operation which is advertised on the back of the box, which would make the game worthwhile...they wrote that it was a "mistake printed on the back of the box. Sorry..." (Isn't that false advertising? Any attorneys out there?)Well, that is the only way this game would be worth using. It is useless to try to do the yoga poses while watching and reading the wording(which by the way, blends into the background of the screen)unless you enjoy being stressed by doing yoga. The company apparently has no intention of patching this. In other words, the game is useless unless you plan to memorize the routines and practice without any prompting. (Just contacting the company is a test in one's patience. There's actually a tutorial on how to contact them, which is also a frustrating experience and forget about signing on. But that's another story) The worst part is: once you've opened the box, thinking the game will actually work the way it advertises that it will work, you can't return it. All in all, I don't think I've ever been so frustrated with a product. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!

Thanks for the warning. I wish I read this before getting it. I mainly use it for relaxation breathing. That is false advertising regarding the 'voice recognition'. If it were a typographical error, they should have sent 'stickers' to update the boxes.
