  1. Pick up Wii Fit expecting a party and you'll be disappointed, but buy it as you would any other piece of fitness equipment and you'll likely enjoy Nintendo’s innovative approach to getting in shape.
  2. Wii Fit is a good exercise alternative for those who can't afford or don't want to go to the gym. The variety of fun activities make it well worth picking up if you can.
  3. Whether you are working on a Yoga pose, stretching your thighs, or going for that perfect down hill run, there is a quality and a depth to each of the activities. This speaks volumes about the investment (and commitment) Nintendo has to their causal gaming approach.

    Simply put, this is one of the best packages on the Wii and something that everyone should at least try out, whether you are a fitness fanatic or not.
  5. That being said, if you are willing to stick with it, Wii Fit can make a great exercise tool for almost anyone.
  6. But none of these activities would be possible if it wasn’t because of the Wii Balance Board, which, in my opinion, is one of the best interactive peripherals ever invented.

    If you are a Wii fanatic or are just looking for to play a game that entertains as much as it innovates, then Wii Fit is right up your alley.
  8. Innovative and a lot of fun - just something to get your ass up and do something good for your body. It's a pity that Wii Fit is just an addition to normal exercises. It can't compete with normal jogging or riding a bike but it's a glimpse into our possible future showing us how training may look like in some years where it will be possible to train your body in any area of the world you like just by pressing a button. Wii Fit will however create a new virtual fitness community producing some masters in yoga and other disciplines all around the world.
  9. If all of Nintendo's efforts to reinvent the interaction with player produce such great results as Wii Fit, they are more than welcome. You can say that this a new kind of social game that will bring you closer to friends but, above all, motivate you to healthy habits and burn those "extra" pound that have been bothering you for a while.

  10. Assuming you can afford it, Wii Fit is a great way to stay in shape. The Balance Board is top-notch technology and as a package the whole thing works tremendously well. [May 2008, p.66]
  11. An excellent combination of honest training and highly entertaining partygames. Losing weight has never been this much fun. [May 2008]

    Wii Fit is going to make Nintendo money by the bucket load. But rest assured there is some pretty impressive substance behind the hype.
  13. A truly innovative piece of equipment aiding Nintendo in their living-room domination.

    Kids that stay all day long playing video games should try having some fun and doing some exercise at the same time. My sixteen-year old son, who is overweight and never works out, is now having a great time with Wii Fit. And the activities that make him really move his body, like stepping and running , are his favorite ones. This may not be the â Full Review »
