  1. Each activity comes with a tutorial from a virtual instructor, and as you kick out at the falling balloons on the TV screen it’ s impossible not to smile. And how often do you see that down the gym?
  2. A wonderful, innovative advancement for Sony’s peripheral. The game has wonderful graphics, sound and options. The only problem with it is that setting up can be irritating and the camera is still imprecise.
  3. With a regimental programme of exercises broken up into mini-games and more 'traditional' moves such as squats and push-ups the title certainly offers those willing to take the plunge an alternative to the gym or impact sports. This is an EyeToy title with actual substance and far exceeds our expectations.
  4. If you're serious about getting fit, this game will absolutely help you with that. There's still overcoming the mental blocks and motivational issues, but the fun factor eases these problems in a fantastic way. This is the reason the EyeToy was made.
  5. This is a serious fitness tool. You don't need costly equipment and the entire package costs less than an average month at the gym. It's also a great alternative for those that may be self-conscious about going to one.
  6. It's not for everyone, of course, but for those looking to shed some weight or strengthen muscles, including your heart and mind, this title is an extraordinary one worth spending time with.
  7. A competent physical training application. Too bad the EyeToy camera needs so much light. [Dec 2005]

    The treadmill was getting way too boring especially since my stupid earbuds kept falling out. it was really hard to get myself motivated to exercise daily. but this game is a lifesaver, videogames are more fun to turn on, and the easiest level can get anybody to start sweating. I thought this would be too easy when i first bought it, but it's challenging and fun. a last dorky comment: it's A LOT more fun to pretend you're on ninja training, military training or Stargate commanding training. LOL. that thought makes me keep at it longer and harder. later, maybe ill incorporate the treadmill once again. Full Review »

    Kinetic is a great game. When I added a diet along with the twelve week program, I lost 10 pounds the first week. You can see the difference in your waist, muscles, and your energy. This game has truly made the difference, I am afraid of missing a workout for fear of anna criticisims (LOL). Anyways, If you are looking for a way to lose weight, tone, AND be sucked into a videogame at the same time this game is PERFECT. Full Review »

    This game makes it fun to excercise. It kicks my butt everytime I do it. It's worth the money because it keeps the fat off ya!
