Summary: The balance board was good to have to weigh daily and keep track of but the Wii Fit game or fitness options do not come close to really helping you work out. I do like have the balance board for other games as well, but do no buy for working out.
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. The problem is that this only works for strength training and yoga. You can not set up the aerobic games. This completed defeated the point of me buying the game. I don't understand what the makers were thinking.
Summary: First I have to say the chicken flying game & the bicycling game are great, they make me happy & they feel like good exercise! But the "routines" capability this was supposed to have stinks. You can only put together routines using the yoga and strength exercises (no aerobics or balance games can be put into a routine) and it still runs way too slow to be an effective exercise routine, unless maybe if you're elderly.
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. Basically the idea is you can set up a bunch of exercises and run through them all without having click through the menus or listen to the guy (or gal) talk about how you did.
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. You can only choose two types of exercise to customize and you cannot combine even the two they the offer. I have the My Fitness Coach and that is a wonderful game.
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. The new game's also automaticaly converted to Metric - so KGs instead of lbs - because our country was set to Canada, there's no option to run convert the Wii fit plus back to lbs, the could have shown both KG (lbs).
Excerpt: Da un po' di tempo ho cominciato a fare ginnastica in maniera assidua e non avendo la possibilità di andare in palestra quando il tempo non lo permette mi sono attrezzata con la Wii! Un amico mi ha prestato questo gioco che funziona in associazione con la balance board e devo dire la verità mi ha un po' deluso, poiché trovo buonissima la sezione del gioco che ti spiega un po' tutte le posizioni dello yoga, dei movimenti aerobici, quelli per bruciare ...
Summary: Ich hab mich von den guten Rezensionen blenden lassen. Das Produkt hatte hier allerdings von Anfang an zu niedrige Werte angezeigt war viel zu sensibel, wenn Wii Fit Plus einen erkennen wollte, und ist nach einem halben Jahr nun auch bereits kaputt. Es erkennt die Wii einfach nicht mehr. Tja, schade.
