well to begin the game requires a leg strap when using the playstation move. getting it through gamefly doesnt get you that which is some what needed. i just put it in my short pocket it worked ok. the game is very engaging and motivating. the virtual trainers dont look too robotic like other workout games which get boring. it also includes videos of actual trainers giving you motivating stories and tips. all in all it is a very good game i will most likely keep it.

This game is just another exercise game and not a very good one at that. Stretches are too long (2 sets of 20 seconds) with no way to skip. Exercises that should require weights instead require you to hold a move controller. So if your looking to do any weight training this is not for you. I started doing one exercise too fast because every exercise says too do as many as possible and the game couldn't track it so it said I missed the hits.
Graphics are average. No need for them to be any better though so not really a knock. You're not told how long the workouts will be. A timer just starts and you go. Exercises are done in endurance sets which means do as many as you can within a time period like a minute.
This seems like it would be great if you didn't need the move controller (it's probably a lot better on the kinect) and you had a punching bag and weights and everything UFC fighters have to train with. Really on the PS3 it's a way for people to get in shape and lose weight but it's not going to help you do the moves correctly or help you with weight lifting.
