Holiday Gift Guide | Zumba Fitness 2 Wii Game Review

I am a HUGE fan of Zumba and the original Zumba Fitness Wii title has been the most consistently played workout game in our home. In fact, I am proud to be able to say that I have lost two dress sizes and increased my overall energy levels significantly since using my original Zumba Fitness Wii game at least 3-4 times per week.

I was very excited to try the new Zumba Fitness 2 game that is available for the Wii. I was hoping that it would be comparable to the original game but I am thrilled to say that it well exceeded my expectations. From the moment that I started my first Zumba “class”, it was as though I had stepped into a Zumba studio. The music is pumping and even on those days that I don’t feel like working out, just listening to the music gets me ready for an intense routine.

If you are familiar with Zumba (or even if you are not) then I am confident that you will really enjoy playing this on the Wii system. Zumba Fitness 2 is appropriate for all skill levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced. I also take a Zumba class at the YMCA and I will admit that I am always a bit self conscious because I don’t know all the dance moves. By working out to Zumba Fitness 2 at home, I can use the tutorial to learn the steps in the comfort of my own home which has given me a big boost of confidence.

In Zumba Fitness 2, I especially like the “Video Cueing System” which helps new players follow the choreography with simple and easy to follow instructions. My favorite part of this game is that it includes a helpful “Progress Tracker” which gives lots of useful information specific to my game plan but most importantly it tracks the number of calories burned which is a great incentive.

I am very impressed with the amount of new routines and music tracks (I can even create a favorite playlist) included with this game and since I am able to choose from five different game modes, it never gets boring or routine. I am constantly discovering new and fun ways to interact with the Zumba Fitness 2.

Overall, this is an excellent game and I give it my highest marks for entertainment, game play and fitness workout. In fact, if being honest (my apologies to my beloved Zumba Fitness) it is now my all time favorite Wii game so far and I can’t wait to tone up even more!
