I was thinking of getting this but was very disappointed when I purchased the Wii Fit. I was worried I'd have a similar experience with this. I really like doing kickboxing or turbo jam style workouts and pilates. I also enjoy boxing style games. Will I be disappointed with this, and regret my decision or do you feel you get a good heart pumping sweat producing workout with this?

No excuses!

I don't know what I'd wear if I had a Kinect....I am always in long skirts (or black sweatpants :P ). PJs maybe?

I tried the Kinect at Best Buy once, and it didn't register much of what I did.
The salesperson said that it doesn't register black clothing very well. Might you have been wearing black? :-/

where does everyone have there kinect? Mine is on top of our 65" TV is that the ideal place?

I am having issues with it recognizing my moves sometimes...Like I have to do 20 squats for it to realize I did the 15 i was supposed to...or the running shows as walking.

How is everyone liking this game. I think I will try it till I finish getting the achievements on the Yourshape fitness. 10,000 calories burned is the highiest acheivement so will try to get sometime down road. I am thinking of adding the new DLC which is a tone up add on and more cardio boxingg. I hope EA will add DLC for this game too.

I bought the wii version when it was on sale at walmart. It's a Christmas present for me so I have to wait to try it out. I have the first ea active and liked it but kept having problems with it reading some of my movements. I've read that this one is better. I need to just stick with one and work at it. All these new fitness games look good.

Thanks for the review, Tema. I had wondered about the HRM so it's good to know that it only works with the game. Enjoy your workouts!

is the price high because of the heart rate monitor that comes with it?

Oooh, thanks for the reviews, Tema!

It sounds so cool! The price is high for me, but I can wait till the price comes down, since I am still really enjoying the older version. :o)

How are the graphics on this game. I hate seeing wii games ported to other systems and be called a Kinect game. Like Biggest loser.

Okay I love this game....Your Shape move over...I like that it's voice command and that you can use the internet to track your progress and keep up with friends although I have yet to find it on the internet site...but at the end of my workout it did upload

Two players can play at once...The only thing I don't like is that the monitor is only used with the system you but it for I bought it for xbox so I can only use it with the xbox and it does not stand alone...but that was no problem because I already owned a heart rate monitor

A few time it didn't pick up my voice so I had to make sure the room was quiet and no other noises could be pick up...Once I cut the tv off in the other room that seem to fix that problem...I truly think this game will give Yourshape a run for the money even though it's twice as much in price...

With the wii version it comes with a little usb drive that you can slimply plug into the computer and upload that way which I think is going to be easy to find your stats when done...I'm still looking for my stats online...I'll find them...you have to register yourself at easports.com

The xbox 360 version does not come with that extra piece of equipment...it come with a resistance band and the heart rate monitor only but I really think I'm going to enjoy this game...

I've always been a fan of EA Active but having to put on equipment always bothered me. Also, never actually liked working out with resistant bands but for some reason I still loved EA Active. I was hoping to pick it up today but after seeing the price I decided not to. I have my own heart rate monitor and I always used my own resistant band. I hope they will sale the game without all the accessories eventually.
