went into Best Buy today, strolled through the XBox games section and
was stunned to see six copies of this game on the shelf... Yourself
Fitness for the XBox. i had to look again.

i'm not saying it's bad or anything like that at all, but it's just
kind of odd to see an XBox video game at Amazon.com, where they say,
"we also recommend Le Mystere Y-Back Contour Bra" or "the Cosabella
Soire Camisole." i can't imagine finding something like that
recommended with Halo 2! ;o)

I've seen that title as well. Not sure what the point is, since it seems
to just be a combination of an exercise tape along with some recipes and
such. You'd be better off just buying '5 minute abs' or whatever from the
next aisle over for $10...

No, we would all be better off weaning our fat asses from the xbox for an
hour a day and spending that time walking, riding a bike or execising in the
gym. Thumb mashing does not constitute an adequate exercise program.

More than anything else, I'd like to see it just for her 3D model. If you go
over to the dev's website, they show off some of the scenes where she's
actually talking and whatnot...it's damn-near FF(the movie) quality, if not
better. If nothing else, it ought to be applauded for that. ;)

My XBox is in front of my exercise bike. I get in a good hour of
Morrowind (GoTY edition) every night. I'm going to get my GF's XBox for
in front of the Treadmill. She likes the GameCube games better anyway,
so I'll just buy her one and put the XBox in the holder where the VCR
is now. I just hope I can find a memory stick that will hold a
Morrowind save.

But the game isn't "thumb mashing." It is an interactive fitness program.
