Your Shape with Camera (Wii)
Advantages: Good cheap game
I bought this game about a few months ago because I like to keep in shape and look my best. It wasn't a lot of money and I bought it second hand from Marie Curie Cancer Care for £7. I already had the camera for this game which was just as well as no camera came with it when I bought it. We have a big ledge on our TV and the camera is placed on top which is in perfect position for the game. It is very simple and easy to set up by just plugging in the camera into the Wii console through the USB port. Easy as that! The camera quality is a bit hazy and not as good as I would have expected but that is probably the only downside apart from it being so repetitive.
Beginning this is the most tedious part as you have to set up your 'persona'. You also need to ensure that you have ample movability room, and by this I mean that it is no good trying to do this game in a small room where you might be liable to knock things over as soon as you start to wave your arms about. Fortunately I have a large basement with ample room where I stock a lot of my household gadgets and I always do my keep fit routines in private down here where I have a lot of room.
I chose my persona and chose to be a rather large fit bloke. The idea is that you can change what you look like and as I am large anyway I had to put in all my exact height weight measurements etc so that it can predict how much excercise I need to enable me to lose weight and be in shape. I have a virtual coach (also a bloke) on the left side of the sscreen and who I have to copy his movements throughout the workout. I then simply had to undertake a short session so that the game is able to tell me what my level of fitness actually is. I could chose to have a female coach but I prefer not to.
I like the way in which I instruct the camera what to do and give it my instructions by just waving about my right arm - I find this quite good but sometimes I have to keep on waving my arm about a bit before the camera is able to ick up on what I am doing. especially is I stand too far to the right. The idea is that it is completely hands free and ther eis no need for you to have to use a remote control which I like as this allows me free movement. I also really like the way it is able to scan the whole of my body before a workout, very hi tech. My other half finds it a bit creepy.
It is your option whether or not to do a full work out of the entire body or to concentrate on one or two areas. I am working on my bottom at the moment and my upper arms so looked for an option to work on and to keep them to their present tight and trim form. I also do a full body work out if I am feeling the need to.
I use this game every night when I come in from work but sometimes alongside other games I have and before I take my shower. It gives a good workout and I particularly like the good music it plays in the background which gives me agood rythmn to work out to and alleviates the boredom. If I get a bit tired during my routine I simply slow down and the coach gives me encourgaement to keep on going.
Good game and thoroughly recommended as an excellent piece of software.
Summary: decent game for the price
