I have M.S. but try to keep active. Will this game monitor me even when I can't do certain moves?

I just wanted to say don't buy it. It is very repetative 35 minutes of the same 6 moves. It also does not give you an option to delete an exercises you can't do. From what I have read on this forum the more you use it the more moves you get but I have done this game several times and still only get the same moves no matter what I pick to workon and how. I would just wanted to let you know because I wish someone would have told me that hour long workouts use the same moves over and over again. Good luck.

I would have to disagree with the previous comment. I suffer from Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), I have used the Your Shape everyday for a week and have had a different routine every time. Because my disability is currently only in one leg,there are some exercises that are difficult for me, and some I will never be able to do. I just sit through those ones or keep marching in place until the next one begins. The game will tell you to correct your form or to "follow me" I just let it talk. It brings my percentage down a little, but I try to make up for it with the ones that I can do well.
It may take me longer to get new exercises unlocked and move up in the game, however, because I am disabled I feel that any workout I can get in is worth it and a positive thing. I LOVE this game. It keeps me motivated and it has been different every time!
I hope this helps you make a decision!

The people who complain of "The Same Moves" either aren't switching body focus parts every workout, or they are not switching it up between cardio and strength training. I've used the Your Shape for a week now and I haven't gotten sick of the workouts yet. When the game goes and tries to get your heart rate up it uses the same moves (standing kicks, turn step, etc..) but the rest of the workout always changes. I just had a yoga workout concentrating on my back and it was very challenging. Most people who complain about the game "not recognizing their movements" really aren't doing them right, or they are off pace. You don't have to get a great score on your workout to get a good workout. Your scores will improve. I love the fact that Jenny is constantly on my back about my form, do you think you'd get anything less with a real personal trainer?
