Ok

  • Summary: This game is not the best but it is pretty fun. The mat is cool but the controls for some of the games are really odd and hard to get used to. Good game but not great.

Good for younger kids

  • Summary: The game was a little over-rated. I thought the graphics were below average. I also think that some of the games are not as fun as expected due to the graphics. I think younger kids may think its more fun than adults.

My 11 year old doesn't care much for it.

  • Summary: I bought this for my 11 year old son. I wanted him to have a game that would give him (us, actually) a fun work-out. A few of the games we enjoy, but, for the most part, my son won't play it for more than 10 or 15 minutes. It's not because he's too tired; it's because he gets bored with it. The games are far too short in length. Most don't seem to last more than two minutes, which is really not enough time to get into it. I'm disappointed with this purchase.

Ok

  • Summary: Would not pay full price, but bought this on a lightning sale. Its ok for maybe ages 6 to 10. I have a few age ranges in my house and my 7 year old is the one who plays it. The fun factor is the many different sports features you can play. I have played and it is just ok. Its fun to compete to see who can get a better score, but not very challenging.

Not a kid favorite

  • Summary: Really thought my kids would go ape over this, but just the opposite. I don't think it is a bad game, I just think it wasn't what they really wanted.

Fun game, but frustrating controls.

J. Lorio, Amazon
18 October 2009
  • Summary: The game is fun. Some of the activities have controls that aren't very responsive, such as BMX bike and in-line skating, making the games frustrating. Base jumping, kite surfing, jump rope and rock climbing are very fun, and seem to handle well. Some nice features from Outdoor Challenge were removed from this game. Active points are not available in this new version. When completing personalized tournaments, the minimal passing scores cannot be adjusted either.

The first one was better

Nancy Lewis, Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: I pre-ordered Extreme Challenge because I liked Outdoor Challenge so much. Seems like the creative minds who worked on Outdoor Challenge were out of ideas for this one. The games are pretty similar to each other and involve a few basic actions: jumping on the mat, stepping on mat buttons to do tricks, or sitting on the mat and pressing buttons. The mat itself is an annoying peripheral since you have to find a place to store it when not in use.

not what I expected

  • Summary: Not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it as far as the game goes. They have a decent selection of sports. More for little kids as far as graphics - very Japanese anime.
