New to meditation (as in never have successfully) I was intrigued enough to purchase Deepak Chopra's LEELA for the XBOX360 without checking any reviews. Didn't want to be tainted. However, after purchasing it, I sort of wish I had. It's hard to call this a game because it really isn't. It feels like a serious, daunting, meditation behemoth, that tries to lore you in by pretending it's a game. But the game play is... um.. well, um... not much of a game at all. Then you forgive it by realizing its really a serious, daunting mediation behemoth, but then feel lost and overwhelmed by how much you really don't know about mediation. So, the lack of truly interesting game play to engage my inner ignorant chakras leaves me disengaged and unmotivated to continue. After spending an impulsive $50, midway through this experience, I came to the sad realization that if this were somehow free, I'd still only play it once... maybe twice. Now if there were only some way I could release the stress and anxiety build up from purchasing this. Hey, I hear there's a new meditation game called Leela on the Wii...

Unlike the other reviews who hasn't define the purpose of this "game", of course it's not a typical game, just like yoga or Zumba for Xbox is not a game, but an excercise with a purpose and an overall goal. If you don't understand the concept of meditation, energy centers and what you are trying to achieve with these ancient spiritual exercises, then this may not be for you. I found these exercises to be very helpful, invigorating and fun augmenting my already spiritual practices. It's great that Xbox is diversifying and making different uses instead of just traditional gaming.

I am a proud Kinect Gamer, and have played many Kinect Games. Now, I just came across this game from the list of upcoming Kinect Games through the Game Stop site. After reading the video, I was fully interested. But when I watched the video, I got slightly uninterested. I mean the game seems cool, different, and quite relaxing, but NOT worth $50.00. I would look into this game before pre-ordering it. Better yet, I will wait until about 2 weeks after it is released to see what the people who purchased it think.

I really love this game, but I bought it for the soul purpose of doing relaxation excercises and learning how to do breathing excercises. This is not a game for gamers. The game has a game part which are more like colorful and relaxing excercises. There is also guided meditation which is my favorite. My kids laugh at the game, but if you are older or seek guided meditation this game is perfect. The graphics are really pretty and the music is very relaxing.
Rated 10 out of 10 by WestMartial A relaxing get away from the rest of the world!!!
To put this in perspective i am a 25 year old male who just recently separated from the Army. So naturally i like all the shooters and the action, but this game is a blessing in disguise. It is a get away to relaxing yourself and to for at least a moment forget the stress around you without having to pay big buck on a vacation. I tried the demo as a joke and now am happy to say that this is in my video game collection and has help me relax a lot.
Rated 10 out of 10 by namaste A must have for everyone.
Whether you're old or young, you need this game. Kids can enjoy it and 42 year old business men can too. This is a rare gem of a game. It teaches how to live better, by being in the moment. Relieves stress. Helps you to develop a peaceful mind. If you want to learn how to relax and unwind, with some fun, this game is for you. Give it a chance, you won't regret it! :) My favorite game!
