Your Shape (Wii, 2009)

Our Price: $22

Can’t find time to get to the gym or simply don’t want to pay their extortionate prices? Your Shape is one of a newer type of fitness game that uses camera-tracking technology to give you with an unprecedented level of accuracy and efficiency. The camera tracking technology used in Your Shape scans your body and gives you real-time feedback on your workout movements. Setting up the camera is pretty simple. All you do is switch off the Wii console, plug the USB camera into the USB slot in the Wii and place the camera on top of your television.

Once you’ve entered your details, you can see all of your body on the TV screen and you are ready to go. The game will set up your profile giving your weight, height and year of birth as the camera scans your body shape. Following this you have a brief test on your general fitness before you are ready to exercise. You can select which parts of the body you want to focus on and set up a calendar with a choice of how long you want to exercise each day. Plus with the “Shape Selector: you can highlight a certain part of your body based on your own personal fitness goals. Game also provides tutorials to show how fitness moves are done correctly. With 500 unique exercises which include Yoga, Cardio fitness, Flexibility, Weight Loss Routine and Strength Training Strength you will be hard pushed not to find some new variance to add to your routine.

You are also provided with a coach, to keep you on track by making sure that you are getting the timing and actions correct. If you’re not coming up to scratch, your coach will let you know. There is a score kept on your performance – so in many ways Your Shape for Wii provided you with a personal trainer at a fraction of the cost you would pay in a gym.

    I bought this game just to try it out and I have to say that I’m really impressed with it. Its camera tracking technology is pretty high tech. It uses the camera to scan where the body is and gives the real time feedback by analyzing your workout. You have to stay close to the TV screen or at least the camera when you workout otherwise the results would not be perfect. Make sure the room in which you are working out is well light otherwise the camera would not be able to pick up your movements.

    Pros: camera tracking technology is very good, cheap, easy to play
    Cons: have to stay in front of camera, steep learning curve, camera is picky.

    I love this game because you can cheat in it, it is recording your every move on camera, it allows you to use your workout equipment if you want to use them to keep the workout more real and effective. One thing that is annoying is that you have to constantly move in this game, there is no pause or no time to rest, you have to complete the workout along with the instructions otherwise you would be left out.

    Pros: easy, lots of workout options, fun to play
    Cons: constant movement required, camera does not always track accurately, sometimes game repeats itself

    This game did not work for me at all; I don’t know what I am doing wrong. The camera was not picking up my movements, and the game felt very repetitive, it had the same exercises and workout sessions again and again. It is very similar to Wii Fit and WIi Fit Plus which we get when we buy Nintendo Wii so I don’t see the actual benefit of this game. The constant supposedly encouragement remarks like “do you feel the burn”, “You can do it”, or “feel them muscles stretch” are very annoying. Avoid this game.

    Pros: camera technology, cost, workout options
    Cons: annoying voices, repetitive, boring
