Excerpt: The Nintendo Wii helped to revolutionize the video game industry by changing the way people play video games. Instead of sitting around and pushing buttons, the Wii encouraged people to get up and move. It took Nintendo very little time to produce a product that had this at the core of its design – a way to get some exercise and have some fun at the same time.
Pros: Fun minigames provide an entertaining way to work out.
Cons: Some graphics could lead to self-esteem issues; not as good as other games in terms of exercise.
Excerpt: Winter time is a great time for me to work on some exercise titles. Last issue Family Friendly Gaming crowned a new king of the exercise video games on the Wii. Does Nintendo have enough magic to get that title back with Wii Fit Plus? The short answer is no, however that does not mean this is a bad Wii game. It is a worthy sequel to Wii Fit. Nintendo tries some new things, although Wii Fit Plus feels more like an add on than an actual sequel.
Excerpt: Het lijkt nog maar een jaar geleden dat Nintendo Wii Fit in je huiskamer gooide en zo pas echt het fitnessgenre naar de Wii en consoles in het algemeen bracht. Oh wacht, het ís pas een jaar geleden! De Japanse gigant laat dat echter geen reden zijn om te wachten met een vervolg, ook al moet Wii Fit Plus eerder omschreven worden als een update. De Left 4 Dead fans zouden zichzelf in brand steken mocht dat men hun favoriete game gebeuren.
Conclusion: Wii Fit Plus comble indéniablement les manques de Wii Fit. Le gros point fort étant les programmes pré-établis ou les programmes personnalisés qui permettront enfin aux utilisateurs de savoir quels exercices leur sont plus appropriés. Pour le reste, on se satisfera de la poignée de nouveaux mini-jeux qui apporteront un peu d'air frais à l'ensemble. Mais il ne faudra en aucun cas s'attendre à une nouvelle révolution dans le genre.
Pros: Récupération des données de Wii Fit, Intégration des programmes, Nouveaux mini-jeux, Apparition des données sur les calories dépensées, Son prix
Cons: Manque de nouveautés, A considérer comme une mise à jour plutôt qu'un jeu à part entière
Conclusion: Overall, Wii Fit Plus is a great upgrade to the original game. If you own Wii Fit and enjoyed it, you owe it to yourself to buy this. If you don’t, you probably will never realize what you were missing in the original, and it is still a great buy. However, there are little things that erk me, and it doesn’t blow me away. At least there are enough features in this that it will take alot longer for this to become a glorified bathroom scale.
Conclusion: To sum it all up, Wii Fit Plus is worth the cash. If you never owned the game before, you can buy it with the Balance Board for 100 bucks. On the other hand, if you already have the other game, you can just buy the new disc for $20, which is not a lot to pay for these valuable improvements.
Expanded version has great games and personalized workouts.

Summary: Parents need to know that Wii Fit Plus contains the original Wii Fit and adds more content. It can be purchased with the Wii Balance Board or as a separate disc if you already own the Wii Balance Board. This upgraded version provides 15 new games bringing the total activities to over 60 covering yoga, strength training, aerobics, and balance games. New to this version is the ability to create your own workout and to play multiplayer.
Summary: The original Wii Fit was a fun way to get some exercise. The new Wii Fit Plus adds even more fun activities. The Wii Fit balance board is unique and well implemented to check everything from weight to balance. The Wii Fit Plus includes a new set of games that can be fun for the whole family while putting a little more exercise into today’s somewhat sedate lifestyle. The draw, of course, is to make exercising more fun and the Wii Fit Plus does that quite well.
Conclusion: Kid Factor: This game is great for kids of all ages. While not all games are accessible for the younger set, my three year old son still loves to play several of the new minigames. He does great at the hip-swaying math game (just randomly hitting three different mushrooms with his hips until he stumbles on the right combination) and he loves playing the obstacle course, even though he typically doesn’t get halfway through the first stage.
