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.
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.
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.
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.
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...

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.
Summary: This game has awful graphics and in not very responsive. But having said that you will burn more calories than the Wii Fit. I tested that myself today. Burnt 96 calories in 15 minutes with Jillian Michaels and 126 in 30 minutes with the wii fit.
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.
Pros: Provides an overall body work out whilst raising heart rate .
Cons: Virtual character sometimes difficult to control
Summary: this game is not as good as the wii fit but i found it ok, there is not many different exercises to do but i found they work you well, yes you can cheat but you can cheat in any of these type games if you want to loose weight you will do it properly.
