    So I've become interested in the kinect's ability to deliver a good exercise. Anyone have any suggested games? I was curious about ufc, but read some poor reviews.

    I ended up getting Your Fitness Evolved for about $1. So far I'm impressed with it (and very sore). Does anyone know if Your Fitness Evolved 2012 is substantially better, or is the original good enough?

    I didn't realise there was a 2012 edition :p

    I haven't used any but, based purely on review scores from Gamespot, Your Fitness Evolved is top dog, better than the EA Fitness thing and the UFC one.

    Not really a work-out game, but my arms get pretty good abuse from Kinect Sports: Boxing. Usually do about an hour of it twice a week. The rest of the games in there are less strenuous IMO though.

    I've heard that Dance Central, while also not a wrokout games, makes you move pretty hardcore for a while.

    Yeah, I can get pretty winded if I play Dance Central for a while. It's fun, has good music, and while it isn't p90x you will break a sweat especially on the higher difficulties. It also has a fitness mode that keeps track of how many calories you've burned.

    I have to say, kinect fitness evolved 1 is kicking my butt.
