I'm just trying to figure out where exactly I'm supposed to input my weight... anyone else with that issue?


When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.

I love it! Tracking is so much better than the first version and the colors and songs are really fun! Anyone else missing the scale to track weight on the progress area? It shows it in the manual but I don't see it in the game.

I recognized some of the songs from the old game but the moves were completely different. The background and menus where drastically changed for the better to so it was really worth buying. Additionally as I pre-ordered I got a 1-yr subscription to Z-Life.

The songs are really good. I had been buying some songs from Itunes to listen to while doing homework (when your concentration is lacking the music helps you move in your seat) and several of the songs I looked up they were that good. :D

I got mine from Gamefly and used it yesterday. I did a med instenity class with a med length(45 min) and it was great! There was even a song we do quite often in my zumba class. Honestly I wasn't sweating as much as in my class so think we must be a higher intenisty but need to work on my scored. LOL- LOVE it when I get a HOT!! Hope to play around with a little tomorrow.

Does Zumba Rush replace the first Xbox Zumba (same stuff plus new stuff) or are they different enough with songs and whatnot to have both?

Yeah i would have preordered but I like to have it as early as possible. the worst feeling in the world is when you have paid for something and your dancing around the doors for them to open and actually hold that precious thing....

What can i say... im impatient.... I blame my parents they are both that way ROFL!!!!! I come by it honestly!

It's getting excellent reviews on Amazon. If it's sold out locally you can always order from Amazon.com, it's free shipping, and in most states will save you the sales tax.

I got the game when it first came out. I loved it way more than the first one... though I have only done the shortest classes. I decided to work my way through the songs first for the achievements. :D I wish the kept the online portion but it was worth cutting for the better tracking and logging in. Also the game seems to be better for achievements. The first game has some that are close to impossible to get (still am only 88% through it) but this version it actually looks possible. In just 2.5 hours I have half the achievements already.

@GROFICA82 I love how you called around to get it. I preordered so I had to go through EB Games but let me tell you I got there as soon as they opened.... they hadn't even gotten it on the shelf yet. :D

I have to say they did a way better job in making it and making less frustrating. I do like the menu way more and all the different selections. I wish it could be played online with others even if little avatars or and to have a leader board. Sounds like they are going to be making another one with those additions from what you posted.

one more question i would add. .

is how come when you have two players (in life) you can only sign into one profile.... like if my friend and I were playing and we both have profiles on the xbox.... why cant it track each of us.... it can track one of us and the other is just a guest.

LOL, that's one of the first questions I asked them last night. The first question was about improvements over the last game: menu system, tracking, and learning curve. The good news is, everything has been improved. The game was practically rebuilt from the ground up.

I then told them how our group likes to play online with each other. They said it was discussed, but they had to make the call to cut the online ability to allow the developers time to make the game itself better. I would have to agree, the game is a lot better and rock solid. I can see myself playing this a lot more than the previous title. They also talked about their commitment to this title and have not ruled out future versions being online playable.

One of the driving factors of their decision is utilizing developer's time. The amount of work involved to include mulitplayer is huge. Instead, they spent the time tweaking the tracking mechanics.

Still, I put the question out to them again and hope to get a formal statement I can include in my review.

I wonder why they would take away the ability to play online with other people... you would think they would make it more interactive.... thats actually stupid...

If i had any question to ask... that would be it...

Woo-Hoo! Glad you all are enjoying this game. I'll be sure to post my full review soon. The game is totally different from the first one.

As for multiplayer, there is NO way to play with people online. There are also no leaderboards. There is an online function to download extra content (at cost), find Zumba classes, and get updates on Zumba news.

I was at a private press event last night and got the chance to see the game in action and talk to the creators. They are pumped about this group. Maybe we can set up a Google+ hangout or something to talk to them.

Let me know if you have any questions about the game.

I bought my too. I had it pre-ordered. I like this one way more than Zumbra Fitness. I found the steps easier than the first one maybe it's that less talking that you suggested.

I asked the guy at the store about playing it with another person and he told me that it's the same as the first Zumba. You will not see the person and the feedback might be there from the kinect so to turn down the game volume, but that will also make it so you can't hear the music very loud.

when you do we will have to try and sync up and try out the two player mode (via xbox live) I am excited to see if they made any improvements to it over the first one...

One gal (for this group) and i tried the xbox live in Zumba fitness and the music was so loud we couldnt hear each other and we couldnt even see each other in avatar form or anything it was just like doing it alone but you could hear was a few words from the other person in between songs...

so i would really like to tray this out with someone else...

Thanks for the info. I am new to Kinect and already loving it with Just Dance 3 and Dance Central. I will have to add this title to my wishlist for goal rewards, anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas and any other time someone wants to treat me =) The game list is growing nicely!

so i just finished. the music is so much better but beware... i thought i was good and decided to do medium length... thats an hour... i thought i was going to die.

as far as the game it does a lot more with arms. i could feel my arms burning while i was doing it. its more like being in a concert now... you have this cool stage and you get cool stage lighting effects when you are hitting the moves perfect... it tells you on the left side of the screen if it is good, hot or zumba. keeping it in zumba is basically perfect now.

the trainers dont talk to you through it like they did before which makes it easier to concentrate on the beat of the music... and on the right of the screen right before they change moves a little card (similar to DC and DC2) pops up to let you know they are about to change moves...

i actually feel fantastic and there were even some modern songs that i new so it was fun to be able to sing along...

all i can say is i can feel the difference in this work out in my abs and arms a lot more then zumba fitness.... i love it!!!
