Zumba Fitness for PlayStation®3
Could be better as far as video game exercise goes
The verdict is somewhat still out on this game, but my first impression is that I'm not exactly blown away. A lot of the dances seem to be locked out for quite a while (I suppose until you 'earn' them), and the use of the move controller is very strange. The exercise belt provided rides up and just isn't comfortable - I know that the game intends to track hip movements, but I don't see why Zumba couldn't have the controller handheld like other dance games (e.g. Just Dance series) rather than secured in the not-so-secure belt. On the other hand, the sequences seem to be overall a bit more exercise-oriented than other more leisurely dance games - so at least there's that!

Save your money for a better workout!
A definite step up from the original (I actually have the original VHS tapes from the original release) and admit that in terms of interactivity. It has come a long way. But that's just it, the original was better and the biggest downfall of the game is the elusive hip belt that you're supposed to be using. Most often because you're moving you usually end up pressing buttons, like pause which screws with your workout. Also if you've noticed from the tutorial, you can essentially move your controller so fast that you're technically doing "good" So save your money and just buy the dvd's or join a class, as this game is a complete waste of time and money.

I am so happy I decided to buy this workout DVD, the great thing about it is that it is fun for any age and also easy but you are working hard enough to work up a sweat. The thing I love most is having a two year old I don't get much time to work out in my house and the cost of babysitters so I can go to the gym is a fortune, but with this she loves the music and dances right along with me. I have been doing this for 3 days now and I lost 3 pounds...I absolutely LOVE it and definately recommend it to anyone!!

Great workout game
I absolutely love this game. It gives you a great workout while having fun. Also comes with a great price :). There is one thing that I don't like which is the belt when you put the remote in it its really hard to work the buttons, but I just hold the remote in my hand. Overall this is a great purchase and worth every penny.
