Cable not compatible with newer generation Wii
3 March 2014
Summary: Bought this for XMas only to discover that the cable connection was for the older Wii. Through internet research, there seems to be no adapter. One possible solution will be to buy a new mat. But this is also not guaranteed.
NOT COMPATIBLE!!! Only with WII GAMECUBE compatible (not with any newer version of WII)

Summary: We are very disappointed that this description very clearly says it is for Wii platform. That is purposely misleading. If you don't have an OLD Wii with camecube compatability...you CAN'T USE this game. I will have to pay for return shipping because this is not compatible with any new WII consoles (Ours is 2011.) I hope they change their description to be much more honest.
Summary: I can't actually review the game, because it turns out it is not compatible with the new 101 Wii console. There is no port to plug the mat into on the new model console, so game does not work. The Wii website does have a long list of games that are no longer supported on the new console, and that info would have been nice to know when I was shopping for games. Now, I get the pleasure of returning.
Summary: The game is not compatible with the new Wii. I called Nintendo to verify and the mat cannot be plugged into the latest console. Active life is game cube compatible Two thumbs down. PS The mat also has a California resident warning about the potential for birth defects and or cancer causing factors relating to its materials. Active Life doesn't show this but that's what it is. Frustrating for new Wii buyers!
Summary: I ordered this game to go with the Wii I bought for my son for Christmas. There is nothing in any description of the Wii console itself or the game did it say it anything about which versions of the Wii it was or was not compatible with. With the Wii version 101 there are no game cube connector ports.
Summary: We told our kids that we would only buy "active" games for the Wii. I thought this game would be fun and keep our kids active. We were very disappointed. The mat slips all over the place so we had to tape it down, which sort of worked except the mat kept wanting to bunch up. The graphics are cheesy. Some of the games require you to get down on your hands and knees and bang on the mat with your hands. This hurts your hands, wrists, etc...
Little entertainment value here and very little activity.

Summary: I was looking for something fun to do that would generate a little sweat and caloric burn for the days that I didn't work out with wii fit plus or EA sports active. To be fair, I tried all the games. I can't say that there was even one game that I really enjoyed. It certainly doesn't give you a workout either. There is more time waiting between games than actual time playing the games. This was a big disappointment for me and a waste of money.
