Zumba Fitness Core on Nintendo Wii: product review

When you can execute crafty but simple dance moves, call it exercise, and lose weight and tone up in the process... well, I am in!

This is of course the premise of hugely popular worldwide sensation that is Zumba.

I was given the new Zumba Fitness Core to trial on the Nintendo Wii (also available on the Kinect for Xbox 360 platform) and I was very excited! I have been taking Zumba classes and have trailed the Zumba DVDs. Plus, for this new game release I had someone alongside me give it a red hot go: my five year old daughter!

Here is what the packshot looks like:
With songs from Enrique Iglesias, Don Omar, Sean Paul, Kat DeLuna, Karmin, Bob Marley, and many more, it's hard not to shake your boot-ay when you slip on the disk.

It's an energised dance-fitness party featuring choreography specifically designed to deliver tight and toned abs, as well as an effective total-body workout.

There are 23 licensed songs of the 40 tracks featured in Zumba Fitness Core, from current chart-topping hits, era classics, exclusive re-records and genre-blending fusion tracks that together with 17 new Zumba original songs (there's something about a Zumba song... it's infectious), deliver the most diverse range of dance styles of any Zumba Fitness game to date - there are 33 in all!  

Here is the official Zumba Fitness Core gameplay trailer:
