Thanks for the comments everyone :)

I checked out Amazon.com and based on what I read there and on here I've decided to get the EA Sports Active :)

Thanks so much!

I had Your Shape and traded it in at Gamestop. You have to work out in a brightly lit room in order for the camera to pick up your movements. I can't remember some of the other reasons I didn't like it, but I also have all the EA Sports Active ones and I like those much better.

I donīt have Your Shape but I have EA Sports Active 2 and I highly reccommend it. It is serious workout and the big plus is hearth rate monitor, which learned me how I should exercise (in which hearth beat zone it is most effective).

Have you read the reviews for these games on amazon.com? That's what I usually do before purchasing a game. I read the negative reviews, too, just to see how it might affect me specifically. (Like do I have enough space in my living room? Is it hard on the knees?) I don't have "Your Shape" so I don't know how it works, but my daughter has it. Maybe I'll borrow it from her... I like the EA Sports Active game quite a lot. It's a great total body workout and really kicks my butt. Plus, it gives you these cute trophies like "Squat Champion" (or something like that) once you've completed 25 squats, or what have you. I find it motivating.

I don't have Your Shape. I do have the original EA Active & Ea Active More Workouts. They are a pretty decent workout. The only thing I don't like it all the switching out with the remote/numchuck postition.

Here are the two games:

EA Sports Active or Your Shape featuring Jenny McCarthy

Which game is better?
And Your Shape comes with a camera, my daughter is usually workout with the wii, so would there be an interference if she was moving too?

To me both games look interesting. I want to buy the best one of these two.

Thanks
Jessica

EA Sports Active is going for $25
Your Shape is going for $20

Are these good prices?
