- Summary: ACTIVE LIFE: Outdoor Challenge introduces the Active Life mat, a durable peripheral that lets players control the on-screen action with their hands and feet when used in conjunction with a Wii Remote. The Active Life mat supports and encourages vigorous activities such as running and jumping, allowing for an energizing game experience. From kayaking to mine cart adventures and obstacle-filled races, players will be able to use a variety of hand gestures and foot movements across the Active Life mat’s eight sensor inputs to control each event. Many of the game’s events can be enjoyed in head-to-head or cooperative multiplayer modes with a single mat, letting players enjoy the rush of competition or the gratification of teamwork as they play together. Created with families in mind, ACTIVE LIFE: Outdoor Challenge lets players put relatives and friends into the game by easily importing Mii characters saved on their Wii console. The game tracks progress by different users over time, comparing high scores and individual records for other users to view. ACTIVE LIFE: Outdoor Challenge also offers a variety of pre-set exercise routines, grouping the game’s events into workouts focusing on different areas of fitness such as endurance, reflexes and general body strength.

MECassidy10This was an unexpected treat for our family. Everyone was able to do all of the games. My 6.5 son and I played one of the teamwork games, and had a great time. Even my non-gaming husband played several hours with us on the Wii. What a great way to spend Christmas morning together.… Expand
CarolV9Wonderful exercise. I am 62 years old and find it hard to have the "gym discipline." This game takes care of that. I have a competitive nature, and this just fills the bill. Excellent exercise, challenging, and lots and lots of fun! Hope I can now get the metabolism up and lose some weight.… Expand

We've had it for a week now and the mat looks like it will hold up rather nicely over time. Money well spent!… Expand
JodyR.7I love Wii Fit, but even at my level of fitness, the aerobic activities don't get my heart-rate up.
