Which one should i choose?

Hello everyone. Well I am stuck in a decision and i want to see what you guys think. Don't worry is just about XBOX-360. LOL =D  What do you think is better.... Zumba Fitness or Dance Central. I read alot of things and they confused me alot. If any of you have it or tried it please tell me which one is better in terms of fun, calorie burning & music list. Thanx =)

I feel that Zumba will become synonymous with "working out" eventually, and people stubborn, lazy, and who hate the idea of working out (like ME), will not quit thinking that they are exercising against their will, no matter how fun it is. So, I vote for JUST DANCE because the title implies that you will be doing just that: dancing, having fun, moving to the music, etc. Plus, in Just Dance there are more chances to make the experience funny. I have seen grown man playing with Just Dance and the videos that they make are hilarious. AND...They are also exercising. Think about that.

To me, the distinction is in the title. Dance Central is for having fun and dancing, but it's not really fitness. Zumba Fitness will have more than just dance. It is also designed as a workout, and therefore will burn more calories.

Zumba Fitness is the way to go, though of course this is a very subjective opinion. You might like to google some reviews that would compare both of these games and see which computer experts feel is the better game. Certainly Zumba Fitness seems to be more complete if you are going to use it for a workout.

I would agree with the above posters. My daughter has Just Dance on Wii and uses it more as a fun party contest game with her friends. Since I have friends that take the Zumba class, I am making an educated guess that Zumba Fitness will be a more aerobic workout designed for more of a calorie burn than a fun dancing time.

The answer really depends upon what your purpose is for purchasing and using. For example, I have Wii Fit Plus, and it offers a more complete workout with more extensive choice than does the Just Dance Two. Zumba Fitness will give you a more complete workout.

As far as the music goes, it really depends on what your tastes are. I like Zumba Fitness better because the music is fun, and the workout is more challenging for me. I will say, however, that the live zumba class that I go to is even more challenging!
