Summary: We were quite excited to get this product for our son--a way to have him do some physical exercise in simulated activities that he likes in the real world as well. But, the simulation is so far removed from the reality that he wasn't even remotely interested in playing.
Summary: This game is not as good as Active Life Outdoor Challenge which I recommend everyone get. You will get sweaty playing that game, but not this one. Also, that game is fun and this one is not. You will be disappointed if you bought Active Life Outdoor Challenge and liked it and then buy this one.
Not as fun as reviews led me to expect (Adult perspective)

Summary: I'm not happy and will be returning this game. Like "Rick" below, I bought it based on the reviews here, when it was offered at a bit of a discount as a an Amazon "Deal of the Day". Having bought a couple other Wii activity games before (Wii Fit and EA Active), I was looking for some new variety.
Summary: My 6.5 year old likes the jump rope and rock climbing and skake boarding but it doesn't last long. The time spent waiting between each restart of a game is long when someone makes an error within the first seconds. I bought this for $[...
Summary: I was not impressed with this game. I got in on sale for $39 and I don't think it was even worth that. The games are "mini" games that do not last very long so you spend a lot of time between games instead of playing them. I returned mine.
Summary: I was unfamiliar with these series of games before, so I bought this game solely on the Amazon reviews. I had gotten my hopes up on how much this game would be a 'work out', but the only time I really felt a workout was running in place.
Summary: The kids and I really enjoyed Active Life:Outdoor Challenge, but felt that this game didn't measure up. The controls aren't as intuitive and the games aren't as interesting as outdoor challenge.
