    The little robot is entertaining, the background visuals are pleasing, and the music is very enjoyable. But two things will ultimately make or break this game for you. One, the gameplay is hard AND easy. About 6 of the 10(ish) gestures can be read by the game if you actually just swing the wiimote(s) forward and to the right. But, reading the gestures on the hard difficulty level can still prove to be a challenge even if you are "cheating" the system this way. I personally just do the gestures without cheating and find this game to be loads of fun. The second thing that will make or break the game for you is the soundtrack. They are all "electronica" so to speak. Now let's face it, your not really supposed to "get down" with metal, or alot of rap, but if you actually dislike or hate techno, trance, dance, r&B or any other heavily electronic music laden genres, then i would not recommend this for you. On a side note, i picked up this title after i moved, and, while dieting as well, lost 30 pounds in about 3&1/2 months. That leads me to one more small criticism. I'm now in good enough shape that i need more songs with alot of energy! All the hardest workout songs compiles a list of about 7. Although any song on hard is at least a small work out. Even if your not looking for a workout and just want to play a fun rhythm game i would recommend Helix. Full Review »
