I rented this game before I read the reviews and my stubborn streak would have had me rent it anyway. I received it on Saturday and if mail ran on Sunday it would already be on its way back to GameFly.
First of all, the game has no flow. It is more pick and choose as you go. Some routines that you are asked to do in beginner mode are only beginner if you happen to be a contourtionist. My favorite of these being the Wii remote stretch. After the little animated woman assumed the position equal to what we used to call 'Chinese splits' and then preceeded to lay the upper portion of her body flat on the floor inthis position, I knew this was anything but beginner. I haven; been able to assume that position in 30 years and probably would not be able to for 30 more.
Half the floor exercises would not register on the board at all since there were no instructions as tothe positioning of the board.
The game needs consistency and flow and it is definitely not worth the wait or passing up another more user freinly game such as the Fit Plus in favor of it.
