    Unique but not perfect fitness program

    I bought this in January to get in shape my way - playing video games! The good news is that the program seems sound, and it will increases your fitness level. I use it about 3-4 days a week and even ran a 4 mile race in San Diego last month. (I have never done that before.) Now for the downside: 1) There are two built-in trainer/coaches and both are really, really annoying. The longer I use this program the more annoying they have become. They offer annoying coach platitudes to encourage you, but they don't seem to have any bearing to what you are actually doing. They seem to be randomly uttered and quite limited so after a few hours training you will hear the same comments over and over and over. The same goes for the criticisms/ corrections. When I first started I did poorly on some of the exercises. Six months later when my scores have more than doubled I will still hear each of those exercises started with the phrase "You've had trouble with this before..." That is not encouraging. I actually turn the volume down to 1 when I exercise because the trainers are so annoying. 2) Not sure if this is the fault of the Kinect or the program, but it has a lot of trouble reading body position. (At which point the trainers immediately blame you.) On some exercises this doesn't matter much on others it is critical and may prevent you from completing the exercise. 3) Constantly pauses. This program seems to think that almost every body movement is a request to pause. Sometimes it will pause 5-10 times in a single exercise causing me to have to stop, stand up and make the body motion to unpause. I don't see this in other Kinect programs so I think it is the program and not the Kinect. 4) The program time increases as you get further in the program. When I started the exercise routine was around 20 minutes, but as you progress it adds time to the exercises and adds exercises. As far as I can tell there is no way to stop this. At this point a full routine would take me more than an hour to complete. I don't have 70 minutes to devote to exercise so I skip exercises to bring the time down to about 30 minutes. It works, but it is annoying. 5) The number of exercises is very limited and gets quite repetitive. I don't have Xbox Live but it says that it has more content there. Overall it works for me. I am still exercising and I haven't thrown a shoe through the TV. And you get an Xbox 360 so you can spend more time playing video games.

    Great Console Video Game

    Great Video Game Console. Great Price. In the end, you have to decide what you want out of a gaming system. If you like motion controls, exercise games, or family-style party games, then this is a revolutionary new way to play. If you are more of a hardcore gamer, I’d probably suggest waiting until more games come out for it. We are very happy with it because of the reasons we bought it, but it doesn’t have much in the way of games for me yet. I have high hopes that someone will make a great game that really interests me soon. In the meantime, I can still enjoy all the hardcore games for the Xbox system. In this regard, the Xbox bundle package is really becoming a one-size-fits-all gaming system given how diversified it has become.

    Great value and great console - but cheap HDD

    Good bundle, and good price. The Nike Connect and Kinect Adventures are well designed apps. The console itself was a bit unreliable. Cheap components apparently. About zapped the console one day simply inserting a USB drive in the front. Loud static, popping, and then the whole console simply shut off. That didn't seem to cause any long term issues. However, the hard drive crapped out after 30 days. I was confused at first, only to see the HDD was showing as "Unformatted." Searching the internet I found lots of entries from others experiencing the same issue. There is no chance of data recovery when this occurs. After multiple attempts to Format and re-configure things, the drive quit working altogether.

    I love this program! I'm able to keep a regular workout routine because it's personalized and, most of the time,the avatars are encouraging. There are a few things I'd love to see modified: 1. The text for the prompts when you're doing something wrong (i.e. "slow down" or "move back" are too small to read on my not-so-small-but-not-a-big-screen TV 2. The voice prompts on some of the exercises don't sync with what the text prompt is providing. This leads to confusion and extra effort to figure out how to do the exercise properly. 3. Sometimes the avatar will say "You struggled with this in the past..." but not give insight into how to improve with the current exercise.

    I love this! The Nike Kinect Trainer syncs with the app on my phone, so I get reminders of my next workout and it tracks my progress. The xbox and Kinect are a great deal for your money also. The only negative is that I am too tall and long so I don't fit in the entire area, but it still is a great time!

    I still have my old 360 but I wanted to get the new one because of the kinect. Awesome gaming for the family my grandma was hooked on it so that tells you how awesome it is. Highly recommend it but I recommend to buy the 250 gb Xbox. Memory fills up fast.

    it sucks because it freezes up when playing. and this review thing is dumb because it won't let me send my personal quick opinion! It keeps telling me "the review is too short"

    If you stick with the program, the nike kinect training program is very effective. I'm a month in, and am already seeing results.
