I've been hearing really good things about the Zumba classes and have seen the Zumba Fitness game (if you can even call it a game?) for the Wii. I'm thinking of buying it rather than going to classes, reason being is that they're £4 a lesson near me and the game is only £20, making it a cheaper alternative in the long run.
Just wondering if anyone here has tried the game on the Wii and what it's like?
We were playing with this at the weekend, its not very good. Its just a silhouette figure, and you copy it but unless you actually know zumba moves you're unlikely to know what the hell it is you're meant to do, but it will tell you that you're doing it right anyway because its a stupid way to control it with the remote on your waist. I think it would work better on the kinect. The Wii isn't intelligent enough.
I know it sounds daft, but I doubt I'll be able to afford to go to classes. If I want to see improvement, I'd have to go often and £4 a class will soon mount up.
Guess I'll have to think of another way xx
Thanks Jess, I may look into aquarobics
Chrissie, I also have Just Dance 2 and Michael Jackson - The Experience. I find them both really good but thought I should give Zumba a go. May just stick with the 2 games I've already got xx
i used to dance, and went to zumba classes but didn't really enjoy them, however my friend has zumber on the wii and boy i have never sweated so much! You have to do it properly and put the energy into it if you want to do it as a workout as oppossed to fun, and having danced i had the benefit of knowing what were the moves were meant to be, which can be the only problem with the game where its just a silhouette!
