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).
Summary: I was counting down the days until this game came out. I own EA Sports Active and many of the other titles but this one is really cool. If you like the show than you really will love this game. The game incorporates all the features you see on the show. It gives you a schedule to follow and of course you have the weekly weigh in and challenge day. There are many ways to make the workouts easy or super hard. Its just so fun to work out with Bob in the Biggest Loser gym.
Summary: Our family has only done one workout so far, but I wanted to get my thoughts out regarding the game to help any potential buyers. I picked up the game based on the positive reviews on Amazon so far, and I think the good points stated there are generally correct. I did my workout for the day on medium intensity while my wife chose the beginner intensity.
Big Fan of the Show, Big Fan of the Wii... Great Combo!

Summary: I just received the game from Amazon today. I popped it in, and decided to start with a 4 week fitness plan. My first workout was classified as light (19 minutes), and then an 8 minute cool-down. I really liked it a lot. I felt like it was challenging enough to get started and I was sweating by the end of my workout. (Even though it was "light", it still makes you sweat.
Summary: I purchased this game because of the other reviews I had read that stated that it was better than the other Wii fitness games such as EA active and Wii Fit. I have only worked out on it once so far, but it is soooo much better than the others. I didn't find myself in a squat for two minutes because the wii remote didn't register my movement like in EA active. I did the light workout because I didn't know what to expect and I'm glad I did.
Summary: I just bought the game a couple of days ago and have used it each day since its purchase. Thus far, the pros and cons: I have bought several of the Wii fitness type of games and this one is the first game that has provided a tough, contiguous workout that does not require numerous lengthy stops to change equipment or to navigate to a different section for a new exercise (such as in the Wii Fit game).
