Wife and & 7year old loved it.She actually got a nice workout and the training mode helped my daughter. Realistic and the instructors were well known. The only negative is we didn't have a Zumba belt so the scores weren't reflective
First of all I got serous love for the Zumba! I love this one just as much as I love the first there’s just one thing... the Zumba original has a workout calendar for those that are actually doing zumba to lose weight and this one does not... Other than that there’s nothing bad that I can say... The dancer looks more real so it’s easier to fallow than on zumba one. The music is upbeat and really makes you want to dance. I have been doing zumba as a workout 4 days a week and have lost 20 pounds.
After playing Just Dance which is what got me hook on the wii... i decided i wanted to try all the dancing games wow what a mistake!!! First of all you wear the controller on your hip super uncomfortable...the music is cool but as soon as you move your hips a little it tells you, your doing hot say what????!!! i wasnt even dancing correctly...i just moved my hips a little i didnt even do the moves and the fun part of games especially wii is that it can recognize your moves and tell you if your doing it right or wrong to challenge your self if you jump up and down the whole time with this game it will give you 5 stars played 2x and returned it i can wait to rent JUST DANCE again i love it and so does my kids!!!

this is worth a try! I'm not really into latin songs but I really enjoyed playing this. The difficulty of the moves and the concept of the game is really great. You can play this without the belt but you won't level up to know your progress.

I love the fact that you're working out and you don't even know it. I did the long program and was completely in shock that I'd been dancing for over an hour. It's fun, the moves are easy and I like that there's a belt so you're hands free. The songs are great, the graphics are amazing. I played this game for 20 minutes when it first came in the mail and bought it the same night. I did it every other day or so for two weeks and people were already noticing a difference in my arms.
Time flies when you're doing this work out, it's so much fun I usually do two more songs just to play a little longer.

If you're new to Latin Dance workouts, this isn't the best place to start. There isn't much instruction, and the workouts shift quickly between steps. Try the EA Sports Latin Dance for an intro game (it's awful in other ways, but good in instruction). But if you are somewhat familiar with the steps, this is the workout for you! The moves are fun, the workouts are intense, and there's minimal downtime between songs. And best of all, an hour workout is really an hour.
