Your Shape: Fitness Evolved (Xbox 360)

 

The appeal of Your Shape: Fitness Evolved is hard for exercise buffs to deny. While other fitness games allow you plenty of room to cheat your way out of a good workout, the Kinect hardware tracks your whole body. You see a representation of your...

The Kinect can see how much effort you are putting into it and estimate the calories you are burning. Your total calories burned are then used to track your progress, even the majority of achievements are tied to this.

Achieving results in Your Shape is not for the self-conscious participant. Kinect's camera reads your body and produces a fuzzy mirror image of it on-screen. Your body's shape, whether slim or rotund, as well as facial features such are hair are...

Best workout game available for Kinect ; Minimizes lag, maximizes return ; Choice between cardio and flexibility/relaxation routines ; Excellent motion-controlled menus

Some exercises not always scored accurately ; No custom routines or music

Ubisoft boasts that Your Shape tracks 1 million dots on your body to reduce lag interference and improve scoring accuracy. Most of the kicks and punches seem accurately tracked with no misses scored for what should clearly have been a hit. Crunches and...

With a new control system that detects arm and leg movements, a fitness game was inevitable. Your Shape: Fitness Evolved fills the void at launch, but does it have enough staying power to warrant a purchase? In a word, yes.

I have a confession to make. A few years back, before I entered the games industry, I used to have an active lifestyle, playing numerous sports and always keeping myself in fairly good shape [Me too 'sigh' - Rich]. Since then I've been thrust into a...

With the freedom of Kinect and its “You are the controller” mantra, Ubisoft Montreal have taken perfect advantage of this, creating a fitness game that feels like a workout and doesn’t feel out of place in your home. There is the odd issue with it...

It's not the evolution the title leads you to believe, but this fitness product is a good first step at using Kinect as an exercise tool.

A number of interesting workout routines ; Cardio boxing is entertaining, as well as a good workout ; The way the game tracks and shows your movement is really cool ; Peaceful presentation

Your movements don't always register properly ; Wearing loose clothing trips things up ; Online features are only half-functional

Your Shape: Fitness Evolved tracks the calories you shed and other statistics, but you should note that at the time of this review, the website used to track progress and set personal goals is a slow-moving mess. It's nice that you can go in and create...

Richard Walker goes hands on with this surprisingly adept Kinect fitness title.

Your Shape: Fitness Evolved Review (Xbox 360)

 

The library of Kinect games has not strayed too far from the obvious: mini-games, kids games and fitness games. Fitness games seem to be especially commonplace, so picking the right one can be difficult and is somewhat a matter of taste. However, I...

Very fluid workout's make YOUR SHAPE a must have!!

 

So to sum it up I am overall very happy with the 50 bucks+tax I spent on the game. I have only been using it for a few days but can already tell I am getting more of a work out then I was sitting on the couch. Once ... Expand full review

The menu's are very easy to navigate. You will for sure feel the burn from the leg workouts after a good session with your virtual personal trainer. The Zen portion of the game is mega relaxing and the yoga will give you a good deep stretch routine

It would have been nice to work out to your own tunes but this is not an option as of yet. When doing repetitions of certain movements the Kinect doesn't pick them up well. This makes for lower then deserved scores
