Is It Any Good?

Your Shape: Fitness Evolved feels much more natural than most fitness trainers. You need not step on or hold anything (though some exercises suggest you add hand weights); just repeat what you see onscreen. It’s almost like a workout video, save that it’s interactive and the Kinect sensor measures, evaluates, and tracks everything you do.

However, there are couple of things you’ll want to consider before buying. First, this game requires a lot of room -- even more than some other Kinect games. Make sure space is cleared as far as 12 feet back. Second, the lag between real world movement and that of our avatar was plainly noticeable. During rhythm-based exercises, we needed to focus on the virtual trainer in order to keep tempo. These quibbles aside, fit-minded folks ought to be able to put Your Shape: Fitness Evolved to some good, healthy use.
