Excerpt: It seems like only a year ago Nintendo released Wii Fit and launched the fitness gaming genre. Oh wait, they did! Now the Japanese game-maker is jumping on their own Plus-train by releasing a revised game, or an update if you like.
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.
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.
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.
