Excerpt: The Wii-Fit phenomenon has been even bigger this Christmas with people looking to burn off those Christmas pounds via Wii-Fit, rather than take up gym membership in these credit crunching times. But is this new healthy Nintendo way of life fit or fad? Whenever I have seen articles or reviews for Wii-fit it’s been focused on whether people can loose weight using it rather than the substance contained in the actual set.
Excerpt: Apparently, this game is supposed to help you stay fit. I don't think it does that good of a job. The Balance Board fails, IMO. It can't really get your actual weight that well. It's annoying to stand on a board to play a game. And how is the board supposed to know if I'm doing something right or not? It's right sometimes (I'll give it that), but not always. Don't expect too much from this game.
Excerpt: This is a oerfect game for those who love sports gaming and the wii balance board makes it that much better whether your trying to loose that thanksgiving turkey or if you just love motion gaming its a great overall game i give it 2 thumbs up 3 if i had 3!!!!!
Excerpt: Over the last two years, the Nintendo Wii has continued to dominate the gaming world. With already 34.55 million units shipped worldwide, the Wii seems to be a powerhouse that cannot be stopped.
Conclusion: Day Eight: My weight has increased, my balance decreased. There’s no way to know if I’m getting toned, but my Wii Counselor tells me that I’m getting weaker. Still, I’ve managed to increase my push-ups from six to 10 (and I was REALLY struggling with six when I began). Who knows what this means? I have some minor complaints about Wii Fit. The first is the default setting for the menus after each exercise.
Conclusion: In today’s world, most gamers need wide-screen support, but sadly, that's another thing Rygar: The Battle of Argus lacks. Besides this, the graphics aren’t what anyone would call great. It’s kind of disappointing to see that Tecmo never really went out of their way to make the game as good as it could have been.
Conclusion: I'm sure everyone that's interested in Wii Fit will be happy with the purchase. It is a little expensive, but the quality of the Wii Balance Board seems to justify the price. The title is missing some key elements that would have made it better, such as different training programs and maybe some other tracking systems. You can cheat easily and not do the exercise. But you'd just be fooling yourself…or your mom.
