  1. Overall, this game is exactly what it's titled: The Biggest Loser. Most licensed games will use a franchise name and little else, but this isn't one of them.
  2. Fans of the show will enjoy this title immensely, while others can still get a lot out of the content offered here, especially if their only exposure to exercise is Wii Fit.

    The Biggest Loser impressed me. While this game certainly has some flaws in its motion tracking and lacks the polish of some of the higher budget fitness games from bigger publishers, when it comes to finding a workout that can get your heart pumping, The Biggest Loser can compete.
  4. One might be quick to pass a title like this off as an attempt to cash in on a popular TV show. Heck, we see it all the time. There is real value here though....The game is an extension of the show in that it provides a new way of enabling people to lose weight and this deserves praise.
  5. The harder players work out the better the avatars will look at the end of their program. This is a neat extra incentive to continue to play this game.

    I bought this game for the Wii system about a month ago and forgot I had it. I found it last week in the bag and decided to put it in my system. I am TOTALLY satisfied with it!!! I was so surprised and impressed at the time of my weigh it to see that it's done exactly the way they do it on the show. I found myself getting nervous and then excited to see that I lost two pounds. I've decided that maybe I should eat better to see if how much I can lose on a diet and working out. I'd recommend this game to anyone!!!! Expand

    This game literally ROCKS my sports socks right off! IN the most AWESOME way! It combines the AWESOME tv show "THE BIGGEST LOSER" with the AWESOME power of a rockingly AWESOME workout. I thought it would be EASY! How wrong I was. I set myself up on the high difficulty level, because I am AWESOME at EXERCISE and then worked through an AWESOME 74 minute workout. Let me tell you, by the end of my workout I felt like Jillian and pushed me through a mincer. Still - I felt AWESOME! for doing the exercises! There are also some really AWESOME recipes and health tips from the totally AWESOME Bob and Jillian along with some great suggestions on ways for losing weight and keeping it off! AWESOME! I LOVE this AWESOME game and I give it 10/10. This game is much better than Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010 - I guess that just shows you what you can accomplish with two AWESOME trainers. Pay no attention to Jorge. He is obviously not AWESOME! AWESOME! Expand

    I am a fan of the show, but I wasn't planning on buying this game. It went on sale some local stores after the new year so I caved in and bought it. I am soooo GLAD I did! I am very impressed with this game! It has different levels so you don't have to worry if you are just starting out on an exercise routine. I do workout at a gym and also run, but after playing this (beginner level on game - I might add) I used muscles that I didn't know I had!!!!! I would recommend this to anyone ! Expand

    I just bought this game last night. I went to GameStop and the sales guy tried to sell me the EA Fit one. He did not sell me enough. It was $20 more and I can go by the resistant bands at Wal-Mart for about $11-13. I love this! I was sweating my butt off. I am very excited and will keep everyone posted. Expand

    Lets face it. No game as yet can watch your movements. This is as close as it comes. You have to be honest during game play or get a personal trainer to yell at you. Great workout, different intensity levels,easy to understand and easy on my knees. A problem with other workouts. I gave it a 9 only because I wish they had included some hand weight activity. (which you can do on your own) Great game! Expand

    I love this game, but I didn't give it a 10 because the warm-up is always the same and it doesn't have a lot of excersises to choose from. BUT I did give it an 8 because I did the Upper Body workout two days ago and I'm still feeling it in my abs and arms. It definitely does work, you just have to do it correctly and not be lazy! Expand

    I would really enjoy this ... except it doesn't always work ... and like a lot of people I don't deal well with frustration. It really hurts when you're running and kicking your ass off and the damned machine isn't registering the work you're doing. Espeially when the program keeps telling you to put the remote in your left/right pocket ... what pocket?!? And any workout clothes that do have pockets ... they're so small that the remote falls out anyway. The workouts are good ... the controller sucks huge! I've actually gotten so frustrated that I'm tempted to throw it off my 11th floor balcony ... what's the point of keeping score ... I may as well end up with a 0 score ... but get a decent workout anyway ... Expand
