I am so loving the Zumba Rush game I just bought on Sunday. I've taken Zumba classes at the gym so it wasn't hard for me to catch on to the routines, bypassing the tutorials. Not sure if the calorie tracker is accurate, I will put on my heart rate monitor tomorrow to compare but the game says I burned 900 calories. Well, I was a bit excited and did about 12 or 13 songs. I think it is so much better than the original which I played on the Wii, especially as far as the graphics. I like playing for a high score rather than filling up a Zumba meter which I found hard to do on the slower songs using the controller. Looking forward to working out to my playlist tomorrow.

I have Zumba Fitness Rush and I like it so far. I've only used it a little bit but I'm hoping to use it a lot more. I think I'm going to get up soon and get some breakfast, do my Video 3 for the 28 day bootcamp then get in some Zumba Fit Rush for the cardio part. Hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday!

Maybe I don't know how to factor in burnt calories but I feel like the short class I did on the game burned more calories than the 69 they told me I burnt.

The only thing I don't like about it, is that in the manual, it says it has a weight tracking option (something that can actually make your "calories burned" more accurate), yet it's not anywhere on the game. I sent an email to Majesco's customer support only to get a reply telling me that the option was a typo! So weight tracking IS NOT available, which in turn makes the calories burned option pointless and inaccurate.

Past this issue, I love the game, it's a great workout!

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.

Hi!
I just got the Kinect and the Zumba for it yesterday :)
I was really excited but in honesty, it was very difficult for me to get the game to move between the tutorials.
Then doing the tutorials made me feel as though I had lost all rhythm lol I got very self conscious in front of my family and just made an excuse to stop smh
I'm going to do it again but when others aren't around lol at least until I get better at the moves :)
Hoping to find others who feel similarly but won't give up either

I wanted to buy the zumba for the kinect. But I had to rent the game instead and good thing I did too. I liked it, but just like anything else I wouldn't have stuck with it. I don't think it compared to the real zumba .. i LOVE the real zumba

I love my Zumba game for the Kinect. Like others, I find the menus a bit cumbersome, and I personally prefer to skip the tutorials and jump right in. Still, it is by far my favorite game and workout for the Kinect.

I love this game for the workout, but the interface was.... not designed well for Kinect. I'm a UI designer, so it bugs the crap out of me (maybe more than normal people, lol). Would be a great interface design on a touch screen - but really hard to navigate on the Kinect.

The workout portion though? lots of fun, good workout, encouraging, good stuff. My only change to the workout portion is that while all the songs are fun, they are all in Spanish, and I miss some of the really fun club-type songs we danced to when I took a Zumba class at the gym. It would be fun if they offered those as DLC or something, but I'm sure there's a ton of licensing issues.

I have this game and consider it to be the best workout. It is a little bit difficult to navigate at first and the tutorials are incomplete. It is best to just go through and pick and choose. Once you get the hang of it, Zumba classes provide variety and fun. I especially like the expert classes which only give you 5-7 sec between songs. Classes also have a built in warm-up and cool down. After 45 min, you really do have a sweat on.

Sorry, I'm slowly working through some of the games that came out this year while I was....out. Now that I'm getting back into things, here is my review for Zumba Fitness.

BTW, if you all would rather me just past the text, let me know. Otherwise, here is the link: bit.ly/pkek8h

So has anyone else played this? I know there are a few of you out there. What are you thoughts on the game? Any success stories you would like to share?
