    One of the best Kinect launch titles, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved is a perfect experience for everyone looking for some home fitness.

    Your Shape won't replace a real-life personal trainer, but it does delivers as close an experience as you can get, in the comfort of your (hopefully Kinect-sized) game room - and that's no easy feat.

    The end result is a solid exercise simulator for the more determined work-out fiends.

    Until a more precise programme comes along, Your Shape will do a great job of keeping you active with minimal fuss.

    Even if it's only the first rung on the evolution ladder, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved shows off excellent potential for the Kinect and the future of fitness games.

    I appreciate how seriously it takes itself.

    Your Shape: Fitness Evolved is a forgettable exercise game that can nevertheless get you sweating in your living room, but it has none of the depth and longevity of its competitors.

    I dont' like the gym and I know I need exercise. Kinect is giving me that opportunity, and if you are as lazy and unfit as I am, then thisI dont' like the gym and I know I need exercise. Kinect is giving me that opportunity, and if you are as lazy and unfit as I am, then this title is just the thing for you.
    There is a small lag if you watch your avatar on-screen, but if you follow with the trainer and focus on their avatar, you can't go wrong. Your avatar is good for correction, but don't focus on it too much.
    As a beginner title in the Kinect series, I hope to see more add-ons in the future, but for now, this will get you exercising and moving.
    The programs do seem to be a little limited, but I have learned from experience that too much variety creates confusion. For beginners like us, this is the perfect title. In the future one can look at other titles like EA Sports Active 2.
    I do hope that one day someone will design a title focusing exclusively on yoga, pilates and tai chi.

    many people spending thousands of dollars for fitness instructors, group fitness courses , personal trainers,calorie burning calculators, yogamany people spending thousands of dollars for fitness instructors, group fitness courses , personal trainers,calorie burning calculators, yoga , zen classes .... finally ubisoft made for Us something what will be substitution for all that for only not more than 50 dolars,and you'll get lifetime membership and you'll get that ---in your Living Room??!!. No more traffic jam, schedules, lacking of time for fitnes , it's just turn on your xbox and play, exercise and burn calories. This is revolution , the best thing ever happened for Us- gamers who alwais "got no time to go to the Gym". My advice is to download all add-on's for this game and I'm begging Ubisoft for one more - YOGA , if you make that in the futures -I'll make 'Ubisoft 'tattoo on my shoulder. Sorry for my bad english and because this sound like commercial but can't stand to look that score 7.4 , need to be minimum 9 , exept for that fitness freaks who" love smell of the gym" Expand

    if you have an active lifestyle already (gym regular, runner, play sports more than twice a week), this game will bore you in the long run...if you have an active lifestyle already (gym regular, runner, play sports more than twice a week), this game will bore you in the long run... but if you don't have time to exercise, a fitness session, a couple of fitness games, and a class of either cardio boxing or tai chi everyday will make you active. as a game, it's not as fun as Dance Central... but it'll surely get you started. the success of Your Shape: Fitness Evolved depends on the games future DLC's and the user's willingness to do repetitive exercises. other fitness games will be coming out on the Kinect soon but this game has set the bar for this exercise genre.

    I don't understand why nobody says more about the new technology that Your Shape bring on ? God, it's the first time that I can see myself inI don't understand why nobody says more about the new technology that Your Shape bring on ? God, it's the first time that I can see myself in a game. And not just a creepy avatar who barely looks like me or a glitchy video fx like a weather man ! It's and my clothes of the day, each morning, in the TV ! And I love that ! Just for that this game talk to me and make me feel unique. It becomes MY game. Cause i'm inside ! Expand

    I liked metacritic when I first got it but quickly became frustrated by some issues with it. Too many times I seemed to be doing exactly whatI liked metacritic when I first got it but quickly became frustrated by some issues with it. Too many times I seemed to be doing exactly what was needed and would be told I'm not and get a low score. Plus the exercises all seemed to be the same regardless of what workout I picked. And there were several times my save seemed to get messed up and reverted to an old count of calories instead of where it should have been. Then the website never lived up to promises and the contest went away due to problems. I still use it to workout for some variety, but tend to use EA sports active 2 more often. I like the better variety in the EA game. Expand
