If you're looking for motivation to get in better shape, UFC Personal Trainer will annoy before it inspires. But if you're looking for an interactive tool that can supplement your healthy lifestyle with home exercise, UFC Personal Trainer can be handy.
UFC Personal Trainer offers the most exhausting workout in video games, but bugs, repetitive programmes, and overlong stretching periods cause you to tire for the wrong reasons.
I sweated through several of Personal Trainer's routines, and by the end, felt the comfortable muscle burn you usually get after a workout, which I suppose is one of the goals of any fitness program, but UFC Personal Trainer fails to deliver in every other way. These digital trainers are less helpful than a real trainer and the martial arts drills they run you through lack the satisfaction of punching a real boxing mitt or speed bag. This trainer won't make you a champion.
There's a great Kinect workout waiting to be made - this isn't it. But though it is flawed, UFC Personal Trainer should still get the committed fitter faster than its current rivals - just not without frustration along the way.
UFC Personal Trainer isn't a great video game, but it is a pretty damn good workout. It'd be downright fantastic if it had better body tracking abilities, and if the voice controlled menu actually functioned correctly most of the time.
