Okay to break a sweat but needs more polish
Wanted to purchase a new fitness game as I was previously using the UFC Personal Trainer that I loved. It wasn't without problems but I saw results. I saw the price of MiCoach and figured why not. There's a reason it's only $20 cause the quality and production is not great. While the exercises are great, it doesn't tell you that you WILL have to buy extra equipment to do all the workouts on the game (dumbells and exercise ball) which is not right. I couldn't tell you if the game is truly registering you when compared to other kinect games that truly let you know that you are off. It does not break down what exercises are coming in a workout until you are committed to the session. Despite the production gripes, I can say that I have done the training portions that I can do without the extra equipment and that I get a good burn do the exercises. The game even offers some mini games like shooting basketballs, soccer drills, and tennis. While not the most responsive at times, I still found them more fun than frustrating. I can suggest this game for casual exercise folks but if you want something intense, go elsewhere.
