I’ve been intrigued with the idea of fitness games. As it is, the only thing I currently use my Xbox 360 for is watching Netflix or listening to music on Last.fm. I’m really too busy these days to spend any time on shoot-’em-ups or adventure games that I used to enjoy.
A good fitness game could probably fit into my tight schedule though!
Well, I don’t have a Kinect, so I guess I should start there, but mainly, I have yet to see any fitness games advertised that make me want to take the plunge and get one. From what I’ve seen, they seem geared for casual fitness enthusiasts, and not towards more advanced workout programs.
I know that game creators want a product that appeals to a larger audience, but I’m sure that a more hardcore workout game could find a nice niche.
The latest offering is Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012. It looks like it has potential, but this trailer just doesn’t give me that “I have to get this” feeling.
Earlier this year, UFC Personal Trainer was released and it looks promising, but I don’t know anyone who has given it a try.
Do any of you have any experience with fitness games? Is there something on the market that you think I would enjoy, or is it pretty much still a waiting game for the next fantastic workout game to be developed?
