Excerpt: I love video games that get us up off the couch. The video game industry has a horrible public image, so it is great to see games like Active Life Explorer. I can use games like this one as evidence to the good in the industry. Sure there are plenty of bad games out there. But I prefer to spend as much time as possible focusing on the good ones. Active Life Explorer on the Wii is one of those good ones.
Summary: Active Life Explorer takes players on a fun-filled, heart-pumping adventure as they use the Wii Remote and Active Life Mat Controller to explore exotic locales and complete a variety of energetic activities with modes for one to eight players.
Fantastic action that will make you break a sweat.

Summary: Parents need to know that Active Life Explorer is a very physical game. The mini-games here include prolonged periods of running, jumping, and stepping. And up to four players can take part in most of them, playing cooperatively. Be aware, though, that there are moments of cartoony violence, including a plane crash, shark attack, giant squid attack, fire-breathing statues, and booby-traps that shock.
Excerpt: Active Life Explorer will look familiar to fans of any early Wii games that took inspiration from Wii Sports and other avatar-based titles. The focus here is on showcasing your avatar in various environments, keeping things light and fun. If you're looking for realism, you're barking up the wrong tree, but the fun factor is definitely high.
