Summary: Positives - 1) If you like the show it's fun to play along with the trainers. 2) You get to choose the length of time you want your "challenge" to last 3) There is a menu where you can choose if you want to do the program (a guided series of exercises, a calendar, a weight graph, diet suggestions, a weekly challenge and weigh in) or you can choose individual types of exercises.
Summary: It is a really good work out game. You get to work out with bob and jillian. You get to choose who to be from the past seasons of biggest loser. The game is a fun way to work out and lose weight. You get to learn healthy recipes. There are so many things that make the game worth every cent.
Summary: I've had the game for more than a month now. As a way of background, I am a reasonably fit male in mid-30s. Used to be quite active, but now between kids and office work, I need to figure a way to workout at home. So I bought the game to guide me through basic cardio workouts. My impression of the canned routines is so far positive. The game does deliver decent tempo and makes you sweat.
Summary: I should point out right at the begining of this review that I could not possibly care less about the graphics on a game that I use as a workout above all else. The graphics on this game remind of games that I played in the mid to late 90s. If you're looking for flashy graphics to watch while you're working out this is not the game for you. But I bought this game to sweat. And as such the look of the game did not factor into my rating one bit.
Summary: I just received my game today and decided to give it a go. I had to take a quick break to answer the phone... no pause feature but pressing the house button works just as well. The trainer is pretty motivational. It was a fun workout. The weekly challenge was hard. I made it to round three before I just couldn't take anymore. I used the male trainer because I bought the Jillian Michaels fitness ultimatum game on Amazon and she is tough.
Summary: If you like this TV show, this game is just as much fun. I have only had it a few days and it is very addictive. I work out everyday, and can do this in the privacy of my own living room. When I first started, I thought how can someone get a good sweat from a video game, well i was wrong and completely exhausted when done. I would recomend this game to anyone wishing to lose a few pounds and not wanting to join a gym.
Summary: I have to say that I was every excited when I ordered The Biggest Loser Wii Game. Once I started using it I noticed that you can cheat a lot and the sensors don't catch it. I would stop doing some exercises and it was still registering that I was doing them. The workouts are good, not easy to keep up but I was expecting this which is one of the reasons I bought it. I first chose Bob Harper as my trainer and I was so happy with his routine.
Solid exercise game for the Wii with a focus on "old school" calisthenics
14 October 2009
Summary: The core of this game is its very comprehensive list of dozens and dozens of "Single Exercises", which are essentially old-school calisthenic exercises (i.e. exercises that don't use weights or equipment). Every exercise imaginable is included, including exercises for cardio, upper and lower body, core, and even yoga poses. Each is clearly identified by an icon and color-coded by intensity (light, moderate, challenging, hard, and intense).
