Summary: 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.
Summary: Yeah its OK but for how much I paid expected the Wii sports disc to work but it doesnt, and the Wii console bit tatty. Expensive for that second hand I think, I've seen others since better that only cost£30 and I paid a lot more so very disappointed really, especially with the disc no good.
I feel the benefits of the system can be gained easily for free.

Excerpt: Game Name: Wii Fit Developer: Nintendo EAD Genre: Fitness As a keen gym goer, the idea of a fitness video game was a curious one. Could Nintendo really mix the progressive overload required in fitness with fun game play? You are given an avatar like character which represents you within the game. This is customizable and can be fun for the younger audience. The game works around different activities like running, yoga and also fitness minigames such as hula hooping.
Summary: I got Wii fit on the day of it's release, so have been using it for getting on for 6 weeks now. I thought I'd better give my opinion in contrast to the pretty much universal 5 stars on this site, as there are a number of bad points to this 'game': 1. The whole product revolves around measuring BMI, which is recognized as a flawed measure of 'fitness', taking no account of muscle mass, percentage body fat, etc.
