After countless sweaty hours with Ring Fit Adventure, I’m left genuinely shocked. This game is a real workout that’s left me breathless, tired and often times aching the following day. At the same time though it also manages to expertly weave everything together with a lengthy and enjoyable RPG adventure that feels essential to the experience rather than merely bolted on. Perhaps best of all though it’s made me visibly excited to workout and that in itself is quite the achievement.
this game is imo one of the best switch games out there. not only is it a fun workout option but the gameplay is also genuinly very fun, even if you dont want a serious workout i would still recomend trying the game is it was an unforgetable rpg expirience
This is, by far, one of the most important games Nintendo has ever created. A game that manages to blend seamlessly between the workout and fitness world and the RPG gaming genre. It's an amazing game, and as one who finished it - it's worth every drop of sweat.
Ring Fit Adventure gently straddles the fine line of trying to be an intense fitness workout routine that wants to get serious about breaking a sweat, while also gamifying movement through its RPG mechanics and on-screen actions. It can't be recommended to drop a whole gym routine for this, but it definitely compliments one - furthermore it could easily help people get into fitness from their own bedroom, or help those who are too busy to head to the gym after a long day at work. The graphical style might detract the target market that Wii Fit aimed for, but Ring Fit Adventure is strong enough to stand on its own two feet as one of the most engaging fitness games of all time.
It's also good that Ring Fit Adventure can scale according to your fitness level. You can easily adjust the difficulty (which seems to be based on the number of reps needed to beat enemies rather than adding in more complex fitness routines) whenever you feel like it, and the game will regularly remind you to have some water, or take a break if you feel like you need it.
Down from the fact, that it is completely boring the Ring of it is most **** think i have ever seen from Nintendo. The other fact, that the marketing is a* isn't much better. It is sad because Nintendo could have made much more out of it, but for me this game is only a piece of trash
The game has a good premise at first, but wastes your time. If you think the snazzy worlds and enemies look fun, prepare to look at those 10% of the time, and sit in mind numbingly boring exercise guides for the rest of it. The game's balance is hilariously broken, requiring grinding for levels by level 4. It boggles my mind that this game has as high of a rating as it does, it seems to have never been updated, so hopes of a patch are null and void. The calorie counter is also broken, giving about 150 calories for a half hour workout, not even as much as you would burn walking for the same amount of time (200 approx) regardless of the sweat you have been pouring off. It also seems to have a pretty awful pulse read, saying after each level that judging by my pulse, it was a "Very Light" workout.
Frankly, after losing a fight on the fourth level by a mile, (Literally didn't even get the enemies down to half health) and being forced to restart from the beginning, I'm convinced this game is the opposite of a hidden gem. A well known game with very undeserved reviews. Mandatory grinding is a terrible practice, and shows that you didn't put enough content in the game to last a decent amount of time, so you force players to replay what little is there. That means, in this case, redoing battles and environments repeatedly, just like going to a gym and using normal equipment, which is what I was trying to avoid with this game.
As for other aspects, both the narrator's have very annoying voices, and the controls are under baked in the running section. They work perfectly during workout sections, but they just arent as fast or accurate as you'll want in the running sections.
Most of this can be patched with an update, but considering my cartridge didn't require any updates when I popped it in, and there aren't any I can find, I'd say expecting long term support hee is unrealistic. Nintendo seems to have made a mediocre exercise program, then bolted on a half baked game. The only reason this didn't flop was COVID, especially at this price.
Long story short, it's bad at tracking exercises, and it can't stand on its own, so it's a shoddy exercise program with a badly balanced RPG game bolted on. Stay away, clearance is where this game deserves to be, and even then, it's not great.
