It is a new game in a new platform so there are some minor glitches that I am certain will be addressed in a patch.
Over ll so far I give this 9 out of 10

The biggest plus for me though is the convenience. You set up a program the first time so it was convenient that I could just turn on the xbox in the morning and do a quick workout before heading to work. Also, the type of workouts usually still allowed me to lift weights, run, or play sports in addition to the workouts since most focused on overall body or core. Core/ab workouts have been helpful since sit-ups haven't been enough.
I haven't tried any of the other Kinect work out games so I can't make comparisons. I have only found two workouts that the game says I am doing completely wrong every time even though the are simple and I have been doing them correctly. So there haven't been any real issues with the Kinect aspect since the workouts are on a timer and will still proceed to the next - just miss out on some points. The only real negative I have found is that you can pick how many workouts a week but not when. There is one day a week I play competitive sports at night and would prefer not to workout on that day so it shows I am missing a workout each week and another day that they give me off but would prefer to workout. But only really matters if you are trying to 'win' - so not a big deal.
Overall, it's cheaper than a personal trainer. Obviously not as effective as one if you want to look like a body builder, but for the average person it can bring you some variety and motivation to your workouts.
The game is good but can be boring

It had a hard time recognizing me and just wasn't all that accurate with my movements.
It was OK. A better workout in my opinion is Dance Central 2. If I wanted something more specialized I would use a video since the Kinect ability on this wasn't that great

Even maneuvering through the menus was difficult since the motion recognition was flawed. It thought I was moving when I wasn't and thought that I wasn't moving when I was. Sometimes it couldn't even see my hand.
You Shape: Fitness Evolved is a much better option.
Not feeling it
