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. There also seems to be a few misconceptions...
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.
Summary: To an even more pronounced degree than most other Wii software,
provides a fun way to get in a little exercise while playing some games at the same time. It’s almost as if the developers were trying to fool you into improving your health and getting in a bit better shape – at least in terms of flexibility and an overall sense of well being.
Pros: It’s cheaper than a gym membership, Hey, you might be able to lose some weight…, Puts the lie to the time tested adage that, exercising could never be fun, by definition
Cons: Drab, not particularly svelte trainers, Not enough variety, Repetitive, cloyingly mellow and undeservedly encouraging dialogue, Just barely meets the criteria for exercise…hardcore training this is not!
