  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    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.

    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,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.

    A few problems with this game: 1) cardio is all jogging - yawn! 2) the controls don't always read user movements, which is demotivating A few problems with this game: 1) cardio is all jogging - yawn! 2) the controls don't always read user movements, which is demotivating 3) it seems that the total calories burned is cumulative, rather than session-by-session, which makes it hard to compete against yourself. What I do like: having one more Wii workout game gives me a bit more workout variety, and it's easier to do with a toddler running around than most other cardio exercises. Tips: don't bother with the balance board: putting on a pair of sneakers and actually running in place gives you a better workout. (Note: if this is a game you really want and you don't own a balance board, you can get away with buying just the game!). Also, it's much easier to do the game using a controller in each hand rather than adding a nunchuk, as the nunchuk limits range of motion and the cord can catch on your knees, etc. when you're doing the activities. All in all, it's nice to have kicking around, but it leaves a lot to be desired! Full Review »
