Very Good

It has some real potential

First off, I have to mention the most annoying thing so far. The lag that I'm encountering is over the top. Every 90 second or so, the game freezes up for about 7 seconds. I sure hope MS releases a patch for this soon. Hopefully the next few reviews in the coming days will confirm that an update fixed this super annoying problem.
One more paragraph of the negative then off to the good stuff. The warm-up and stretches after a workout are repetitive. I got so tired of hearing the guy say the same junk over and over. And from what I've seen so far, the two workouts I did had the same warm-ups. There's also this awkward silence throughout the workout. Maybe it's just me but I'm use to having Tony Horton from P90X constantly talk which I find motivating. Practically all workout videos are like that. I also wish they displayed how long a workout lasted its remaining time. This is pretty essential for those days that you have to be somewhere at a specific time. Finally, the voice commands are extremely limited. I wanted to voice command to forward past the 4 warm-ups but instead I had to do a hand jester with took forever.
Ok now the good: It's a pretty solid and exhausting workout. I absolutely love the "program workouts" They have a variety of programs from 30 to 60 days in length which also pulls up a calender to show you what you have to do and when...awesome. The ability to punch in the amount of weigh is great. Just like "Your Shape Fitness Evolved", you go through an assessment. Your calorie count is displayed at the end of an exercise and you can. There are charts that show your progress which I dig as well. Finally, I love the fact that this game allows you to do a variety of ab workouts which read your movement pretty well. Push-up is another on that the Kinect reads. I like this game better than "Your Shape" although there are some features that I miss from "Your Shape". If I could I would give it an 8.5 rating once the exaggerated lag is gone.

I own this game and love almost every aspect of the game. The biggest complaint that anyone makes about this game is the freezing issue that people are having, I was also having this problem and I did some searching online and I found out that it was an xbox live problem. If you disconnect from xbox live before you play the game you will actually not have any freezing issues at all and I can verify that this works.

Other than that issue I found that this game is great it is really pretty accurate in reading the body movements and it offers several programs ranging from 30 days to 60 days and it really makes me sweat. I really enjoy many aspects of this game and I would recommend it to people of many different body types as a way to help get into shape without having to leave your home.

Overall I think this is a game that is fun and it is a great way for a person to exercise without leaving their house.

Not too bad, but one HUGE flaw...

Since day one of playing this game I have experienced the game freezing. For some games I can overlook it as long as it doesn't happen too often. With this game it gets extremely frustrating when it happens in the middle of your workout. I don't have a problem doing the workouts, but when you have to start all over it eventually you become too tired too make it through it.

Besides that the game it great. I like the workout routines and the fact that it has different fighters that you can hit mitts with and that they all have different striking routines.

If you are looking to get in shape and have fun doing it, I would suggest purchasing this game assuming that the game freeze doesn't upset you as much as it does me.
