Excerpt: I remember when I first heard about Walk It Out, and pondered what kind of a game Konami was making. Walking around on the Wii was an interesting idea, but lets be blunt - how much fun could it be? Why not go outside and walk around? Well having bronchitis, and it being twenty something degrees outside made me appreciate Walk It Out on the Wii. Seeing what Konami did with the world you walk in made me appreciate this exercise game even more.
Summary: Walk It Out
is no acceptable substitute for actually getting out of the house and walking around your yard. Your neighborhood. At least you can go at your own pace without being penalized. You might make some new friends. You can listen to music that you enjoy rather than music you’re just bearing for the sake of the game.
Pros: It’ll at least encourage you to get walking., Works well even if you're only using the Wii Remote...but you're still walking in place.
Cons: Actually going out and walking will get you better results., Repetitive music., Horrendous graphics., No real reason to play this rather than “real” exercise.
Summary: Walk It Out is the worst game I have ever had to sit through. This is easily the top contender for “2010′s Worst Game of the Year.” There is no redeeming value in it whatsoever. You’re paying thirty dollars to WALK IN PLACE which is horrible for your hips, knees, ankles, and joints to begin with. You are better off just going outside and walking a few blocks. It’s cheaper, prettier, and if you had some sort of music player, it’ll sound better too.
Walking becomes a fun game of exploration and getting fit.

Summary: Parents need to know that Walk It Out makes walking in place fun. While rated E10+, the game can be used by kids as young as age 3, as long as parents control the song playlist (some of the songs have suggestive lyrics) and exercise some of the options to make the game easier. If younger children are playing, don't explore the 3 mini-games because 2 involve whacking humonoid-like characters with big mallets.
Summary: Ever since the release of Wii Fit , the Wii has been flooded with countless exercise and aerobic games. The studs of the bunch have been Wii Fit and EA Active . Almost every Wii fitness game has brought something to the table, but then you have Konami’s Walk It Out! , which can quite possibly be the most useless fitness game to hit the platform.
