Summary: This is really good fun. It makes you feel like you are in the show they keep you going and you dont have to go at a pace that you dont want to. Its not a strenuous workout but builds up gradually which is great for people who do not do much exercise and this is a start off.
it's growing on me but I don't think it's something I would recommend to a friend

Summary: In comparison to other wii game, this game is not very easy to use or navigate around. I found that it did not properly record some of the exercises, especially those with skipping and jumping marking you down for stopping when you hadn't The main advantage over wii fit is that it generates programmes or exercise routines and you can select the length of these.
Summary: I thought this game would be great based on the reviews, but was very disappointed. The game is so slow, between every exercise you have to change the hand or pocket where the remote is, or move the balance board. The time between exercises is slow, and then every few minutes you have to stop to have a glass of water, this lasts for ages and there is no way to skip through it, so you just have to wait.
Summary: I got this game a couple of days ago to tide me over if I can't get to the gym. I did the fitness test and was happy to find it recommended I did Hard level. It's just like having a personal trainer in your own home. Yes sometimes it doesn't pick up the remote for skipping etc and when it says put it in your pocket I find tucking it into my shoulder strap more effective.
Summary: I should start this by saying that I'm a 66 year old grandma who hasn't done much excersize for quite some time. My aim was to loose about 1st. and also get a little fitter and after one month I can honestly say it's been a real success as far as I'm concerned and I much prefer it to the Wii Fit DVD's. I've lost about 6lb - not exactly earth-shattering but fine by me and I've just moved onto the intense workouts.
Summary: I gave this game a 3 star rating because the day after exercising my core I actually had a terrible back pain and had to take muscle relaxants and pain killers. The circuits are good for sweating, I think you can get a better workout than with EA active sports or wii fit because it doesn't stop between exercises as the others do. I'm not sure if I did the exercises wrong but I was afraid of using the game and hurting my back again.
Summary: I got this as a present and I have to say it's great. You really feel like you're having a proper work out and it's varied so you don't get bored doing the same thing over and over again. The only downside is the timing on it - if you select a 40 minute routine it can take an extra 10-20 minutes, if you select a 50 mintute work out it can take an extra 15-25 minutes etc. But other than that it's great.
Summary: I haven't watched the programme, so maybe it was a little harder for me to understand how they wanted me to move and what was coming next. I also brought EA active more workouts at the same time, and I spend more time on that, than this. Biggest loser is much easier and you won't hurt yourself doing it, but I had been doing EA active so this is okay for those who can only do light work as it works out what is appropriate. I did a few challenges with hubby too.
Summary: I bought this as I've recently got a Wii and wanted something more exciting than Wii Fit. I love the Biggest Loser TV programme so thought this would be a good way to work out - and it is, I really love it!! YOu can sign up to different workouts - different areas of the body, different time lengths etc, which makes it a very varied and less monotonous regime.
Summary: I have a wide variety of fitness games for my Wii, because I like to mix up my exercise to avoid getting bored. One of the games I'd had my eye on was The Biggest Loser, and I managed to pick it up for around £9 probably a year ago. I do quite like the TV show, and the trainers always seem tough and strict, so I thought that hopefully the exercises would be more challenging than some of the other Wii games out there (e.g. Wii Fit Plus).
