Any good for a chubby 22 y/o? lol

would you say you would have to be thin and fit to play this?

I'm a bit chubby but love playing the kinect, currently obsessing over kinect football but I thought this might be good for me and the missus to play.

What are the songs like, I've seen a few topics saying they're a bit repetitive, but I've played LEGO Rock Band and it doesn't get much more repetitive than that so yeah. We like R+B and rock, currently loving the new Kanye album, is the music going to be to our taste or is it more like dirty dancing soundtrack?

Thanks for reading

I don't know the soundtrack to dirty dancing but it's mostly hip hop and the like. As for the activity level, it's fairly active, but if you can play kinect adventures you can play this. On easy most of the dance moves are in place (or with side stepping).

I don't think it should be a problem, you can look on youtube and see all different size people playing it just fine (I enjoy the one of the father and son in matching outfits).

As for the repetitiveness, on easy the songs maybe have 10 different dance moves (but it varies song to song) but on the harder difficulties it increases. I am not positive but I think each song has it's own routine and the routine changes between each difficulty.

I am 43 and carrying an excess 70 pounds and I am having fun. I probably won't be getting many on hard, but I am having a great time.

Something I've been doing since last week: playing DC with 8lb strap weights on my legs and holding 5lb free weights on my hands. Sure is more fun than the gym.

It's pretty much kicking my 36 year old, out of shape, couch potato ass. But I love it. I know I'm getting a decent workout from this game, I can feel it the next morning.

I'm nineteen, EXTREMELY unfit, solid kinda guy. This game has kicked my ass all over the place, but I've enjoyed every minute of it (and so have my friends and family, actually!).

Trust me, if you haven't gotten this yet and you don't completely hate dancing, you will love this.

You know, being a 31 year old 330 pound bastard, it's good to see that us larger people are into these games. I remember the first time I played the original DDR in a place called Playdium (would play for free because I worked there) I lost about 50 pounds playing that game. That was over 10 years ago and thanks to office jobs and being married I put that back on in spades. I hope they continue coming out with games like this for kinect because games like this are fun and the console dance mat for DDR was shit! No mat= Mo fun!

Despite the track list not being to my taste I've got to say this is probably my favourite kinect game so far. Really enjoying dancing like a fool in the privacy of my own living room! I'm not exactly fat but not in great shape and I can tell you it's a hell of a workout for me playing this.

Get it. I've never been the fit macho lean man (though I want to) long history of asthma and being a sickly child well, didn't make me an active kid. I'm about 6 foot and 220-240 ish and this game is a great work out and tons of fun tho. There are some moves i'm having issues figuring out exactly how the game wants me to do it (knockout for one) but I am having tons of fun. My neice loves it, my friend loves, its great.
