Summary: I bought this because I'm overweight and want to get back into shape. At first things seemed fine. I tried the exercises which seemed a bit slow and at places childish. Then I noticed that every single time I started the program it insisted on a weigh in and, of course, I would get the pronouncement...
Summary: As an game for entertainment purposes, I'd give this 3 stars. It's charming and fun for the family. But as a true, hardcore exercise tool, 1.5-2 stars. If taking quizes and doing math problems is a normal part your daily gym routine, then Fit Plus is fine for you.
Pros: If you are someone who gets basically zero physical activity, of if you have kids that need to entertained in order to coaxed into SOME type of physical activity, then Wii Fit Plus is fine. It's at least better than sitting passively on a couch. In terms of being somewhat fun from a gaming standp...
Cons: As a true workout tool, even this upgraded version still fails miserably. Basically it fails to be a TRUE exercise tool because there is just TOO MUCH DOWNTIME between exercises. Your heartrate never stays up in the zone. Anyone who worksout regularly knows that keeping an elevated HR and 65-80% ...
Summary: The number 1 reason I bought this game was not even for the extra games, but for simple fact that you would be able to program your own workouts so you would not have to continuously stop and navigate to your next game between activities.
Summary: I think this game works well for someone who is not in great shape to begin with, but the exercises just seem too simple with far too few reps for those who come into this game a little more advanced.
If you're upgrading to Wii Fit Plus for the "Routine" feature...beware

Summary: Others have reviewed the game in detail so I will just point out my main gripe. I have been using Wii Fit for over a year now and was excited about the new "My Routine" feature in Wii Fit Plus.
Summary: Was very disappointed with the few new games and exercises. The new games are ok, but not a work out. Not enough new exercises to keep me interested, played for a week and then switched to the biggest loser game.
Summary: I was very disappointed in this version of Wii Fit. Working out with the original was often frustrating because there was no continuity. Stop and start for every exercise. I thought WII FIT PLUS was going to address those problems. It did not. The customized program is very limited.
Summary: challenging to responding well with the wii fit board. If you want actual results, you'd be better off going to a gym, but if you want to just have some fun and burn some calories, then this may be suitable for you.
Disapointing lack of Improvments to Fitness Interface

Summary: S. Lavigne, in her/his review hit the nail on the head. The customized routines are all be useless. We were hoping what it would be possible to choose from all types of activities and to be able to better customize the lenght of the activities.
