NOT COMPATIBLE WITH NEW Wii CONSOLES!

AnneJ, Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: We just bought our 6 1/2 year old daughter her first Wii console, and thought the Active Outdoor Life was the perfect game because she would be moving and jumping. I don't like the idea of letting a kid sit for a long time playing a video game. After lots of frustrating time trying to figure out why the panel door doesn't open to plug in the floor mat, I discovered that the newest version of the Wii (Model RVL-101--November, 2011) doesn't have a panel door covering the...

Way to ruin Christmas...

Duane Mohney, Amazon
25 December 2011
  • Summary: This games shouldn't be on the market as Wii compatible since it doesn't work with current Wii's Game Cube port based accessories are obsolete, and should have a disclaimer added to the listing on amazon and the box.

Not for the New WII

Marc, Amazon
23 December 2011
  • Summary: Giving it a 1 star because no where in the product description does it mention that it is not compatible with the new Wii consoles. The mat requires a gamecube port which only the older Wii systems have. My 3 year old was very excited to jump on the mat and play the game and was very disappointed when daddy had to break the news. I searched for some type of adapter to make it work but was unsuccessful.

Not compatible with newer Wii console- 2011

MooseMom, Amazon
15 December 2011
  • Summary: Here's the message I received from NAMCO: Unfortunately, the Active Life Mat requires the Gamecube inputs in order to be able to connect the mat to the system. The newer Wii models do not have these inputs available. We have not released an adapter for connecting the mat to the new Wii system model at this time, but we've passed this information along to the appropriate sources to look into this matter.

Doesn't work with the new Wii Console

Trishthedish, Amazon
30 November 2011
  • Summary: We just bought a Wii and this game at the same time and were very excited to try out this game after reading the great reviews. After trying to hook up the Mat Controller yesterday we discovered that the game is not compatible with the new Wii Console. There are no ports to plug it (or a game cube controller) into. Very disappointed. Hopefully Amazon will put something on the product page warning people about the compatibility issues.

Probably more for older children

B. Kerr, Amazon
26 March 2011
  • Summary: As previous reviewers have already stated, it's a really fun game and probably more designed for school age children. Mine are pre-schoolers and even though they love the games, it is very hard for them to stay on the correct spots, while coordinating everything else. However, this is a matter of practice and they can figure that out in time.

Who knew exercise could be fun?!?!

K. Floyd, Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: I hate to exercise. It's too much like work. This isn't work. It's a blast!!! I spent over 2 hours playing it by myself the first night we had it, then I got my husband and my dad playing it, too. Our only problem was trying to keep our 2 year old DS off the mat while we were playing. Highly recommend this game to anyone who wants to get more active, but also wants to have fun while doing it. Not to mention, it's just plain fun to play.

Best Wii game purchase to date!!

Kristen, Amazon
9 September 2009
  • Summary: I'm a 26 year old female with an 8 year old son. We've had a Wii for about 2 years now and I'd have to say that this has been our favorite game by far. There are various levels of difficulty making this a great gaming choice for all ages and skill levels as well as a great exercise tool. Your kids (or even you and your friends) will have so much fun that you'll completely forget this is actually GOOD for you! Makes a great party game, too.

Great Game!

Linda B., Amazon
14 April 2009
  • Summary: I have two teenagers - 14 and 16. I questioned how appropriate and challenging this game would be for this age. Also, I don't have the Wii Fit and was looking for something different than from what everyone else has, yet of the same quality and challenge. Overall, I'm very pleased. The games do produce a sweat and are advanced enough to give my teenagers a "run for their money!" I had a hard time cooling down myself once I got into some of the games!
