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.

Summary: We had a lot of fun entering our data and playing some of the balance games and such, but if you actually work-out on a regular basis, this product WILL NOT give you any kind of good work out. It is great for beginners, so I'm so glad they thought of this idea!
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.
