I have played the first version and was excited to get my hands on the next version looking for new challenges and improvements. After exercising for the past two weeks, I'm not entirely impressed. What I'm impressed with is the different and types of exercises (a big plus).
However, there are two issues with the game, in my opinion. For one, the new version lacks instruction (none) on movements (the first version provided instruction, but only once and couldn't revisit the help later, if you needed it). I think this a major drawback, especially for individuals not coordinated (causes a lot of frustration). Second, the game claims flexibility in exercise routines. However, all the game does is allow you to choose exercises targeting different parts of the body for your workout.
With that said, I will continue to use the program because it does get my heart going (which is my goal).
If you learn quickly and very coordinated, then this program is for you.

I have set up an objective, but where is my tailored exercise routine? Do I have to go and choose my own exercises ? I thought it provides a personal trainer with an exercise program. Where is it ? Help please, the manual didn't help.

I'm discovering the same issue as well. I was really hoping it could take me through 30 solid minutes of various exercises that are targeted towards my goals, but I can only choose one exercise at a time (which takes rougly 3-8 minutes) and it takes FOREVER to go back to the main menu and select another activity. So in reality, my 30 minutes of exercise is more like 45 minutes (15 minutes of which is time wasted going back and finding another exercise to do.) Lame.
