I have bad knees from running so basically I would avoid exercise such as jumping rope and running.

Does "Your shape" and "Your shape 2" involve a lot of jumping?

Although it was highly rated for fitness, but I also care about sport injury because not just me would play the game. I won't let my family member hurts without knowing the game would hurt them.

not sure what your trying to say in that last sentence, dont think it matters for the question tho. – Paralytic Apr 13 '12 at 7:52
@Paralytic possibly another question... "Do games that require physical movement (like xbox kinnect) prone to injuries?" – Taz Apr 13 '12 at 8:33
Hopping yes... like skipping, but not outright jumping. – deutschZuid May 13 '12 at 12:57

It depends on the game, if you're playing something like Reflex Ridge on Kinect Adventures, than yes there is a lot of jumping. But if your playing a dance game, you typically wont have to jump a lot. Joyride is also a good game if you want to avoid jumping.

Your Shape - thats the only game I know that doesn't need jumping very much.

I've been able to get kinect to see me as jumping when I just go up on my tip toes real quick or make a jumping motion where I raise my torso but I never leave the ground. Taken from here.
