Heres why Not to buy it,
1. The sensors are an amazing idea but they need a lot of work. No matter how good your form and positioning is, the game will read you incorrectly and force you to hold a lunge for 10 seconds extra before it makes a correction. It seems to always do this in mid lunge , squat, or some other uncomfortable position.
2. Constantly skips counts on fast paced exercises like skipping, foot fires, running causing you to do much more than planned.
3. Focuses WAYYYYYY too much on lower body. Even the upper body days will give an advanced user leg/calf cramps from excessive repetition of skips, foot fires,running, biking, boarding. I have been mountain biking for years and considered my legs to be very fit yet I constantly had to skip days due to calf cramps even 2 months into my program. **And yes i did stretch and drink plenty of water**
I find myself constantly changing batteries hoping to make up for the sensor/gyro shortcomings and am always cursing and screaming at the damn trainer because it says im not doing something right or giving extremely low heart rate during peak exercises. It's an amazing platform and I love how its designed but the damn sensor errors make me angry daily.
First let me say, I added this to a daily routine that had no real exercise (walking the dog, and going to work was about it) and doing 4 workouts a week through the plan (between 35-45 minutes/workout) I was able to lose 20 pounds in 6 weeks. This game really does get your heart pumping and it tries to work every part of the body.
Once you're done with the two workout programs you can create your own workouts from a selection of 70 exercises and tailor your workouts to your needs.
As other reviewers have said, the warm-ups don't really do much to warm you up rather than just stretching your muscles, simple solution is to jog in place during the loading screens (in between exercises). My other beef with this game is that the sensors can get frustrating from time to time. When it has you do lunges or squats, it can take a while to register... Regarding the heart rate sensor it's fairly accurate when your arms are straight, but I've found that the heart rate drops when you run or do hammer curls or other activities where your arms are bent.
I don't remember if Amazon said this when I bought the game but the online features for this game no longer work. For some reason EA decided they needed to "shut down the servers" for this game after only a year and a half of the game being released... In this case, if you're paying half price for the game like I did then good, full price probably not worth it since you lose half the functionality the game was supposed to be sold with.
My final complaint with the game is a small one in that you can't rename workout once you've made it. So either make a whole new workout or deal with it...
In the end, I'm glad that I got this game because I have lost a good deal of weight and by it keeping track of your progress and goals it makes you keep with your exercising rather than just giving up. If you find it hard to stay on track and motivate yourself to workout this game is for you. Short of a personal trainer I think this is the answer.
I did notice that there is a slight delay between your movement and when the movement registers on the game. This made a couple exercises tricky, but I figured it out quickly. The only thing that didn't work well is the exercise band that came with the game, which was no big deal for me. It kept coming untied from the handles. Maybe I wasn't tying it tight enough, but I have my own exercise bands and free weights, so I was content to use those instead.
For me, tracking my progress is key. The game tracks the time for the workout, the calories burned, the number of exercises completed, and tracks your overall progress in the program you select. There are also options for workout buddies to keep you on track. Overall, I give this an A+.
