Zumba Fitness: Join the Party
So much Fun, Great results!
I normally hate working out, and become really bored with normal workouts, but as soon as i tried this game i was hooked! i play 45 mins 4-5 times a week and i work up a sweat! In only 2 weeks ive lost 7lbs! I find myself humming the music in my head and dancing around even when im not playing. I just wish it would tell you how many calories youve burned on the screen like the newer version does. Awesome Game!
Don't Confuse this with Dance Central!!
For everybody giving this game a low rating because its not like Dance Central....it's not suppose to be....It's a Zumba ((workout)) game. For those familiar with Zumba already its the same ((workout music)) from the DVD's. It's a great game and you are guaranteed to burn the calories. Even if you aren't doing it perfect, just enjoy it and understand you still doing a great job. Just give it all you got, and you WILL see results. I LOVE ZUMBA!!!
this was not a good dance game there was barely any veriety my sugestion is just get dance central
Good workout but.....
The game does give you a good workout but is terribly frustrating. You follow the move being done one the screen and when the woman is not moving it's telling you that you should be moving. It just does not make sense. Not to mention if you have to do moves with your arms in front of you the kinect doesn't pick them up. Not worth the frustration.
GREAT MUSIC TO DANCE TO!
I HAVE THE SONGS STUCK IN MY HEAD. THATS THE ONLY BAD THINGS ABOUT THIS GAME. GAMEPLAY IS VERY SIMPLE AND IT IS FUN AND EASY TO LEARN! IVE LOST 20LBS BY PLAYING ZUMBA 40 MINS A DAY.
QUITE THE WORKOUT
Besides the trouble it has sensing you in the beggining, once you start playing the actual game its pretty fun and a big workout! I burned lots of calories!
Love the game but not good if you have pets or kid
I love love love zumba and i love the game this is a great game it is exactly like going to a class. I had to buy the wii version though because when i would play on the kinect every time my dog or children would walk in the background it would force me to add them to the game every time they passed through. I ended up not even being able to finish one song without having to spend half the time adding new people i ended up with 8 people once going at the same time. If you have ever had to add another person when there is only one [person in the room you know how hard that is to being with since you are you and it wants to add someone else so registering a ghost isnt easy lol. but good game i play the wii version daily just dont recommend unless you are the only one in the house.
Great dance routine/workout!
I've never taken Zumba in my life, but a friend of mine bought this game for her Wii console, and so I decided to give it a try on my Xbox. I recently joined the gym a few months ago, but needed a different routine. This was a perfect alternative since I was sweating in less than 20 mins time, and getting the full benefits of an aerobic/cardio class! My Cousin and I love dancing, and we love challenges...so this game was in fact great for us! After 2 weeks, I lost 3lbs! 5x a wk, 25 mins per day. I'm going to start upping it to 1 hr a day, just to see maximum results in 6 months time!
My only gripe(s) about this game is the menu options are confusing! Definitely not menu option friendly. The instruction manual was basically useless...First time setup took over 10 mins since we had to learn all the options ourselves. Took us awhile to find out where the 'multi-player' option was, and you basically had to stay STILL when you sign in your players prior to the classes, or else the Kinect sensor will sign you off, AND start signing in multiple guests. Xbox needs to fix that problem, because it seems the sensor is quite 'sensitive' The other gripe was the game doesn't tell you how to correct the steps when you're doing it wrong. We basically figured it out through trial and error....(Green meaning you executed the move right, yellow is within borderline ok, and red is you're just off)
Since I really enjoyed Zumba and the routines, I'm willing to overlook the horrible menu. You have to like dancing, and have rhythm in order to like this game, or else it might be too advanced for some people. The only tip I can somewhat give is if you find the classes hard, try redoing the tutorials over and over in order to get the steps down pat.
Zumba is a great work-out and alot of fun
Out of all the dance/workout games, this one makes me sweat the most and i am burning some serious calories. It may take some people a little while to get the moves down but you will get a workout and have fun while doing so.
I love this game. I use it about every other day as one of my workout routines! The steps are a little hard to learn at first but it gets easier as you go on! There is a part in it that helps you with the moves but i never used it. Great game overall, i definitly love my kinect!!
