Great concept but Frustrating at times
on 10 September 2011
I have been working hard at this game for a few months now and I have really been enjoying the concept of gaining achievements and seeing my progress as I move through the excercise sessions. The concept is great, the look and sounds of the game makes you feel like you are in a special spa retreat, and the avatar trainers keep you motivated because you feel like you are working with somebody else. BUT - and there is a big frustrating but here - the accuracy of the sensors can get out of line on some sessions where it is fine in others. E.g. the sculpting sessions totally ignore that you are moving your leg and therefore you get less % points. Also keeping in rhythm for this class is very difficult even if you are matching the trainers movements exactly. Saying that though, there are enough classes on this game that are consistent and recognise your movements fine, to keep you into the game. Also one MAJOR MAJOR flaw on this game, is that there are special reccomended sessions put in for you called for example 'perfect butt & thighs workout' which are your 'daily sessions' you are supposed to do everytime you play the game, and it is supposed to count down 11 or 12 sessions each time you complete one, and supposedly advance the routines in the sessions until you complete it, and possibly unlock new sessions. However I don't know if this will ever happen, because the game RESETS your progress everytime you play a different session, and so you perpetually have '11 sessions left' to complete. Very frustrating. One thing I have got to say is THEY HAD BETTER FIX THESE PROBLEMS SOON AND RELEASE A FIX UPDATE - AND HAD EVEN BETTER FIXED THIS PROBLEM IN FITNESS EVOLVED 2012. It would be very dissapointing to have such a great concept to work to your fitness goals, and when it comes to achieving your well deserved progress, the game conveniently suffering from memory loss.
