Top Customer Reviews
1) Space - The game's body recognition is very picky. You do need to keep as much of your body as you can on the screen at all time. They suggest 8 to 10 feet between you and the camera. They are being very literal. I am 6 feet from the camera and definitely have some failures because my arms and my legs sometimes go outside the screen.
2) Light - The room needs to be well lit. Shadows in the workout space will confuse the camera when they cover you.
3) Tempo is important - Part of the game's finickiness is that you have to be in sync with the Jenny avatar. Falling behind and being off from the tempo will bring the annoying "Follow Me" arrows. You will have to keep your intensity up the whole time.
4) There is a learning curve - It will take a few workouts to get used to the way the camera is recognizing you. Expect your first few workouts to "score" lower as you adjust. Thankfully, you are not forced into bad form to make the camera recognize you, but you will have to make some minor modifications.
5) No cheating allowed - The camera never gets tired, and expects you not to get tired as well. If you get tired and part of your body starts to slow down, it will ding you for it.
6) The camera is picky - yes, the camera is picky and expects precision
7) You are going to get dinged - this is a complex technology, and you and the camera will disagree. Just expect it.Read more ›
Well, I got the program on release date and worked with it for about 2 hours (Set up and working out). The set up is easy. I was afraid the camera was going to utilize the motion sensor plug spot on my Wii. But no, the camera connects to the USB slot, so there's no need to be switching cables every-time I work with Your Shape. The profile set up is easy enough and of course you have to take a fitness test that gets graded. For some reason the program said I was doing my jumping jacks incorrectly, so my final fitness test grade was a B.
After the test you go into creating your workout schedule. Be careful here because I thought I was just checking out what they call "Extra Challenges", but instead ended up starting (and doing) a 30 minute yoga workout.
Now the trouble really starts.
Apparently the Your Shape people thought the annoying feedback chatter in EA Active is charming because I was getting a continuous string of peppy encouragement. At one time, during the corpse poss in yoga, there was nonsensical chatter like "You can do it", or "feel them muscles stretch"or "do you feel the burn". I searched the menus for ways to turn off chatter but the best I could do is lower the voice.Read more ›
Of course, what sets this title apart from the others is the inclusion of an "Innovative Motion Tracking Camera". It turns out this is just an ordinary USB Webcam. I was disappointed that this wasn't going to be a Project Natal-like advancement in Wii gaming; on the other hand, I was happy to get a "free" Webcam I could use for my laptop.
Setup is a snap. You plug the camera into a USB port on the back of your Wii. After a system update, the first thing you see is Jenny McCarthy giving a list of advice for how to maximize performance of your camera.
The video version of Jenny is then replaced with a slightly creepy animated version (with way too much computerized eye shadow on). An annoyingly frenetic, peppy cover of Rihanna's "Umbrella" plays over and over and over and over again.
Setting up your profile:
You start by setting up your profile. As with as other games in the genre, you type your name and an optional password, choose your unit of measurement, enter your gender and year of birth, and enter your height and weight. You still have to enter your weight by hand (I would have liked to see some balance board support).
The game will turn on your camera and you'll see yourself on the TV screen. From here, the system will "scan" your body and show an outline of your body.Read more ›
