Its much much better than the wii imo, theres no faffing about with the controller, its just like using an exercise dvd. But it can read what youre doing, so can see if youre doing right etc. If you are going to use it for exercise, get one of the proper exercise and fitneas games, I have zumba and ufc trainer. I have kinect sports which is more of a party game. If you have an xbox already I would recommend it.
