It is what you make of it.

Summary: This review is not only for those considering buying this game, but also for those frustrated by it. First of all, if you bought a Wii, you should already know that the graphics and avatars are not great. If you want great graphics, get a PS3. This game does have very lame graphics, the path you jog on stays the same the whole time. Wii Fit has a much more fun jogging path. I got this game strictly for a workout, so I really didn't care about the graphics or my avatar.
Summary: I will agree with the other reviewers that the graphics aren't the greatest and I think the wii fit is more "fun" but I feel I get a better workout with this. I definately sweat more with this one and feel like I am exercising more muscle groups. I also like when you set it up for say a 30 minute workout you can go from on exercise to another so as to keep your heart rate up where with the fit you have to toggle between games or exercises.
Good workout but it takes a bit of time to figure out how to do it

Summary: I was hesitant to buy this because of all the bad reviews but decided I'd try it anyhow since I'm looking for more variety for working out. I'm glad I bought it and I'm also very glad I knew ahead of time what to expect. The graphics aren't good but I really don't care about that. It does take time to figure out how to do the activities. But once you figure it out, it does provide a good workout.
Summary: First I want to say that I love Jillian. She is an inspiration and the first fitness guru I know of that really encourages the obese to work on getting inside their heads in addition to working out and eating better. I love that about her. But this game, compatible with the Wii Fit, is in many ways disappointing. I should preface that I've only used the game twice so far (1/2 hour on aerobic, and 1 hour on strength), so I may not have seen all the features or issues.
Summary: So I have had the weekend to play and at first I was seriously confused but then I got the hang of it even though its a little annoying.. I am sick of my Wi Fit, so this is a nice change- But the controls don't match do what you are doing half the time- Anyway after 15 min I am seriously sweating so even though I prob look like a complete fool doing this and trying to figure it out, its ok..

Summary: Ok so i just got this a couple days ago and like the other reviewers I do agree it could of been alot better and had alot better directions within the workout. I found myself not knowing what button to push while doing activities then when I finally figured it out it was a great workout. I have done the wii fit now for 110 days and have lost 23 lbs however was shocked to find myself sore in other areas after just 2 times on Jillian's workout.
Excerpt: As a huge fan of the Biggest Loser television show (I also have the Biggest Loser game) on which Jillian Michaels is a trainer whose trainees have always won the show, I bought this to see what she could do for me. This interactive workout was not what I was expecting in that it isn't an ordinary work out scenario whereby you mimic a virtual trainer and follow a particular sequence of aerobic or toning moves or exercises.
Pros: Provides an overall body work out whilst raising heart rate .
Cons: Virtual character sometimes difficult to control
Excerpt: I LOVE THIS GAME IT IS EXACTLY LIKE THE BIGGEST LOSER WHEN THE GAME LOADS YOU GET TO CREATE YOUR CHARACTER AND ENTER PERSONAL DETAILS EG AGE SEX WEIGHT HEIGHT THEN YOU GET TO CHOOSE WHAT TYPE OF TRAINING YOU WANT IE STRENGTH, STAMINA OR DIET. YOU ALSO GET TO CHOOSE HOW HARD YOUR WORK OUT IS AND FOR HOW LONG, YOU CAN ALSO GET TIPS AND RECIPES ABOUT DIETING FROM THE CAFETERIA ARE IN THE GAME.
Summary: Um es gleich auf den Punkt zu bringen: das Cover verspricht mehr, als der Inhalt zu bieten hat. Nach "My Fitness Coach" wollten wir endlich ein Fitnessprogramm, welches auch das Balance Board (BB) miteinbezieht. Also fiel unsere Wahl auf "Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum". Zwar ist das Spiel ansprechend gestaltet und die verschiedenen Übungen im Angebot sehen überaus vielversprechend aus; die Umsetzung und BB-Kompatibilität vergällt den Spielspass aber leicht.
