Summary: The price of this game goes higher and lower every couple of weeks. It's worth the lower price, but not the higher price. The workouts require a lot of space to play with the balance board, so I usually choose my own routine with the space I have. The reason I say pay the low price is strictly for the challenges. The challenges are FUN, give you a great workout, and make you feel like you're somewhere else.
Summary: If you bought the WII Fit for weight loss purposes thinking it was going to be a good workout and then was dissapointed (as I did) then this is the workout game for you! It is like having your own personal trainer in your living room. After a short interview (height, weight, age, goals) You can choose a preprogrammed workout or create your own. I chose a preprogrammed because I figured they would know better than I as to which exercises would benefit me best.
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 like my workouts structured - it's one less thing to worry about with a busy schedule. The Biggest Loser does a fine job of managing and varying your workout schedule with 4, 8 and 12 week program options. Keeping an equal eye on daily calorie limits, it helps me manage the two major component to a healthy lifestyle - diet and exercise. There are, however, some program quirks that you have to work around.
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.
