Fabulous active games -- think Wii Fit for kids.

Common Sense Media
22 October 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this Wii game costs a little more money than most because it comes packaged with its own Active Life Mat controller on which kids will run, jump, and sit as they play very active games. Expect to see a lot of sweat, hear a lot of laughter, and witness a lot of high-fives as kids work their way through this set of 16 innovative games.

Namco Bandai's First Exercise Game is a Bit Too Little, a Bit Too Late

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: It would have been smart for Namco Bandai to release this before Wii Fit, but it helps that Active Life is cheaper ($60) and most likely easier to find. Tackling the relatively brief career mode is sweat-inducing fun in the harder difficulties, and I enjoyed the retro Power Pad appeal. However, the pad constantly needs to be re-centered in front of your TV and it's not wide enough for two adults to squeeze onto.

Video Game talk

  • Conclusion: As the second true title to promote healthy activity and get people off the couch and moving, Outdoor Challenge does have a good array of games to get people up and moving. Sadly, the motivation may dwindle after a period of play. Perhaps though, some of these activities will get people interested in the real world version of some sports (mine cart jumping and mole whacking not inclusive) and then as a developer even though you�re preventing more sales you are passing on...
