You may remember me reviewing Zumba Fitness for Wii a while back, when I was working on being fit and svelte. These are not words that describe me now. Blimp describes me now, sadly, 6 months pregnant is not my best look.
I tried to keep up with the exercise for a while, and did run for the first 3-4 months, but then it started getting cold and I started to really struggle and somehow I just stopped. Now it’s a struggle to just walk around town, so when the offer to review Zumba 2 came on, I agreed with the caveat that it would be more of a comparative review than an exhaustive workout.
I’m pleased to say that this second version does indeed have improvements on the first. Or maybe I did learn something from doing the first one Either way, my first attempt at it generated a 58% score, which seemed pretty good to me right now. (Please don’t feel the need to tell me how much better you can do!) I found this easier to follow along somehow – perhaps the avatar is just easier to understand than in the first one? The one thing that I did think was a shame was the lack of variety of low intensity workouts – most of them seem to be medium or high and I don’t really want to be going for high intensity workouts right now. I do understand that this isn’t really targeted at the heavily pregnant woman market though
I like the slow v normal speed settings in the tutorial section (sorry, can’t remember if that’s new in this version or whether the original had it too) and it’s a great fun way of getting or staying active at home.
Now tomorrow when you check back there will be a giveaway, but I’m afraid rafflecopter has defeated my poor babybrain tonight. Or it might just be exhaustion, I’ve no idea. But do check back as I’ve copies of the game as prizes and it’ll be a quickfire comp too
