I know you said you can only buy one, but here's my two cents' worth. Dance Central is a good aerobic workout if you really put the effort into it. My kids also say it's fun for a group (I do all my gaming alone 'cause I don't want anyone watching me).

I really like Your Shape: Fitness Evolved for a gym-type workout. Kinect Sports can really work your arms in the boxing and ping-pong (yes, ping-pong!) games.

If you can, I'd try the games or demos at a store or a friend's place and see which one you like best. emoticon

I have Dance Central, BL, and Your Shape. While I really like Dance Central, it's just cardio. With the other two you get strength training, corrections to your form, and health and fitness advice. I guess what you need to do is decide your focus and go from there. I'd get Your Shape before BL because of the add ons like the website and what not.

I think they all have their good points so far. Dance Central is fun if you are looking for just steady low impact cardio. EA Active has a good track record. I liked biggest loser for the little I could play of it, but I found the control of it to be very annoying. Suprisingly, I really liked the Yourshape Fitness Evolved because it really disliked the last version on the Wii. Plus Yourshape Evolved has already had 4 downloadable workouts (have to pay for it) but it does show they are already putting out new content.

Hello! I just received a Kinect for Christmas, and I love it so far! It came with Kinect Adventures, so that's all I've played yet. I really want to get another game, but I can't decide which one to get! I'm wavering between Dance Central, Your Shape, Biggest Loser, or EA Active. I know that's a lot of options, but every day I change my mind!

Let's see, I want a game that gives me a good workout! I also wouldn't mind if it was entertaining.. emoticon

I should add, I'm a poor uni student and can only afford to get one game as of yet.. emoticon

What do you recommend?
