  1. The developers could have used some coaching and beatings by Jillian to get this game into shape. Visually it doesn't look like a Wii game, and it barely makes use of Wii's motion controls.
  2. You get the idea – this is by no means a “gamer’s game” and it strains to make the definition of “game” in general. It’s really more of a fitness tool – a fitness tool with an unholy dose of The Biggest Loser mixed in.

    Obvious this is an attempt to cash in fast. The game hurts your eyes and the controls just don't work. So unfortunately it's really a painful and bad game which you shouldn't buy.
  4. It's completely broken. [Aug 2009, p.99]

    If you don't care for absolute non-responsive controllers and very bad visual then you can burn some fat. The proposed exercises are good, after "playing" some time you feel your body temperature rising and your fat going away, i think it burns more than wii fit plus, but unlike wii fit plus it's completely not enjoyable in terms of gaming.
