— "Zumba Fitness Core" (Majesco, for Xbox 360 and Wii, $49.99) is the latest entry in the cha-cha-sweat empire's interactive catalog, combining several different dance styles into ab-busting workout classes set in ridiculously silly locales, like next to a waterfall or aboard a yacht. The Kinect version isn't as polished as "Dance Central," although it's more extreme.
You'll feel the burn to the game's wild soundtrack. Unlike the expected hip-hop-and-pop flavor of "Dance Central," the kooky tunes in "Zumba Fitness Core" range from Latin cheesiness (Enrique Iglesias' "Bailamos") to refreshingly eclectic (Grace Potter and The Nocturnals' "Paris"). It's a must-buy for fans of the gyrating franchise who own a Kinect. Three stars.
