I had a small background in kickboxing years ago and thought this game would be fun to try. It's fun but definitely gives Dance Dance Revolution vibes--it's not exactly "dancing" (or in this case boxing) but it's close! The game takes some getting used to, my form sucks more playing the game than if I were to throw punches on my own. Instructions in the game come really fast, often I was off balance and throwing poor punches just to get the score. Not to mention sometimes you will clear the move just by shaking the remote-even if it's not the right move. The other thing is while you can play the individual rounds as many times as you'd like, you can only unlock one new set of rounds per day which was a pretty slow/boring day one/two. Overall I liked the game, the combinations (though at times were taught too fast) reminded me of what I had learned in the past, the workouts/rounds got my heart pumping and I really did feel like I "worked out" my arms, shoulders/back, and legs when I was done for the day.
