Oh...I really have to keep trying! I think I will find the exercises in the workout portion and see if I can do them there, before I try them in the races? I got past the first two exercises in level 2 and on the 3rd exercise I was doing 5 or 6 to get credit for 1. I got to 9/10 and realized that once I got that 10th one, I still had to do another 10 on the side and I knew I couldn't so I quit! I think my Kinect is set up good...I did have trouble with the running section on rise of nightmares...but I don't have any significant tracking problem on my other games? It's very frustrating, but I won't give up yet. If I just knew what I was doing wrong on the exercise, but it doesn't tell me! Anyway...I'll try again! Wish me luck!

OK I made it to level 4
We are down to the last second. and the kick is ........good. Packers are 12-0. Holly SH... what you can do when you put your mind to it. 1 minute 3 plays. Get down to the 15 yard and the 31 yard kick is good all in a football minute.

And I watched the game with out chowing down on football food.

OK I have my review of this game.
1st that whole set up thing. your right, grab your controller and get it done. The next time go down to the bottom of the list and say continue unless something changed. 99% of the time nothing changes.
2nd. You have to have room. dig into those squats. If it still doesn't see you then move your kinect. I have mine about 3 feet off the floor.
3rd I started with the workouts and it was ok but today I did the adventure and it was really fun. I was kicking but.
Dont tell any one but I want to go down and play right now but the football game is on and I live in WI. Yes we have more than 1 TV but the game is really good. I did level 1 and 2 I have to go play. Don't tell my fellow packer backers.

I haven't played this game, but a few Kinect sites have torn into this one and I'm not really sure why. Bad menus are one thing, but terrible tracking can ruin a game altogether.

I saw the game in target and wondered about it. i am going to be checking back to see what comments are left..
the menu issue seems to be a problem in a few of the newer games... maybe a misstep in the push to get new games on the market? hmm

Got through the level 1 race! It was fun, but hard because it doesn't recognize all my moves and so I have to do about twice the number to get past each obstacle. Maybe I will get better with practice? I still had to use my controller to get through the menus, haven't figured out why! Didn't do a workout yet, but it does look like I can choose a beginner's workout, so I'll try that eventually. Like a lot of games nowadays, there aren't a lot of instructions, so I have to kind of figure it out as I go. Once I do, I'll probably wonder why I was confused in the first place? Anyway, I am withholding judgement until I play this one a few more times. I really want to like it!

I tried this today...not so sure? I had trouble getting through the set up and menus so I finally reverted to the controller to enter my info. Then I tried the adventure...level 1. I didn't get very far before I gave up. It wasn't giving me credit for a lot of the moves I did, very frustrating. It seems kinda hard anyway. I might not be ready for this yet? But I will try a few more times. I'll try one of the workouts...can't see where you can adjust to a beginner level? Anyway, I haven't given it a fair shot yet, so I'll let you know what I think later. Lynnbaum-how are you doing with it?

I have this one on order..should be here this week. I'll let you all know what I think of it. I have a 65" TV and sometimes have trouble getting all the way out to the edges in some games. Guess I just need to move more and get quicker? Anyway...I am looking forward to this game. I hope it's not too difficult for me. Is anyone else getting this one? Does it have xbox friends leaderboards? Lynnbaum...keep us updated on your experiences with the game. Any tips or tricks you can pass along? I think I'll need all the help I can get! Lol

OK I got it. Need to hook it to a different tv. I have a 480P near the treadmill. What doesn't matter on the treadmill does matter with the kinect. I need more pees. I just need to do some moving. Game is fun so far. It is sofar the better workout game I have found. It might be the tv thing but I get tired of the tv not seeing you.
I am working out with trainer tonight. Did so Jillian yesterday.

Comes out on the 22nd of this month. I think I will preorder it from jillians site incase she includes any free tag-a-longs. I have to work the BL more because right now it is way so not right. I think the one I did was the begainer and it was mostly warm-up and cool down and besides jumping jacks I question what was in between.

I am so excited because the golds I joined just bought another gym and we get to use both places while the new one is being finished and it has kettlebells
