What is the best fitness game for kinect?

I still haven't purchased any of the titles or kinect yet. $200+ for kinect and a game is a big investment. I have heard a lot of complaining about the controls and not being detected. I want to choose one though.

Out of zumba, biggest loser, ea sports active, and your shape, which is the best?

I don't have sports active but I have the others. Zumba is by far the most challenging workouts and will give you the most success burning calories. If you follow the moves and keep up ... it is really a workout. Biggest Loser is an epic failure on managing the menus; it takes a lot of patience just to get started. Haven't done Your Shape enough to have an opinion on it. Zumba is very challenging though... can't give you much details on the scanners reading on any of them.

I have Sports Active, it comes with the resistance bands and Heart Rate monitor which is why it's a bit more expensive. The workouts are quite good, very intense and I am often quite knackered about halfway through.
The problem with the game is it keeps losing you, or bring up the pause menu which can be very annoying, particularly if you're doing something whilst on the ground such as push ups....the game makes you stand up again to find you and it can happen multiple times in a work out. There is supposed to be an update in February, hopefully that will fix it.

I have Biggest Loser and Your Shape:
Biggest Loser has a better "range" of exercises, especially if you want lower impact, but the game is more tailored to people who want to lose weight more than those who are already quite fit.

Your Shape is definitely more centered on doing specific types of exercises, and so far although I get out of breath, I'm never sore afterwards.

From what I've read, a lot of EA's one uses standard exercises like press ups and sit ups, which you could do without the game.

I REALLY like Biggest Loser for how it shows if you're doing the exercise right - rather than "you're doing this wrong" it shows how close the overall thing is, and what to correct.
Your Shape is annoying with the rhythm thing.

Note as well that Your Shape does have a tendency of giving you the same exercise several times in a row, so you get VERY bored of doing the same thing over and over and over...

this got the best out of 360 magazine. but i reckon you get more of a workout form kinect sports, but then again that could just be because you can play longer seeing as its really fun with some mates round
