Great as a fitness video, not bad as a fitness tool!
on 25 March 2011
After playing this for the first time last night, I feel as a personal exercise workout tool and planner, it isnt as good as others on the market, but if you just use it like a regular exercise DVD/video it is great. There are plenty of workouts and classes, but they dont split them between beginners, intermediate and advanced, and it doesnt provide you with a program to keep to so someone like myself who rarely exercises, I found them to be hard going as the workout was too extreme and I had to decide myself which exercise and intensity to maintain during the class, and found a lot of the time having to stop midway as it was too intense! Also I had to decide myself which class or program to use whereas other similar games gave you more advice as to which workout to use. Not every workout is Move-enabled so a lot of the time you dont need the move controller, and even for those that do I would question whether it tracks your movement and makes any difference using it or not. However on the positive side, the exercises are interesting and varied, and there are plenty to choose from and it helps having your picture (via the eye) next to the trainer to help with positioning and performing the exercise properly. Overall, if you expect the software to tell you exactly what to do, when and how (like EA Active Fit does), it doesnt, but if you use it as a fitness video and have some knowledge about different exercises and stages of fitness, it is a great investment!
