I really wanted to like this game! My issue is that there is not enough verbal "coaching," so you have to keep your eye on the tv screen, which is not always easy when you're trying to do the exercises. It's not as user friendly as it could be...takes some time to figure out how to effectively use, especially when you don't have the full instruction manual (when renting). The exercises are definitely effective, so that is a big plus, I was just bothered by the fact that it wasn't always clearly indicated via sound when it was time to transition from one activity to another. I also felt that there should have been more form "pointers" available, especially in cases where it was "rating" you lower than perfect form. Often, I felt like my form was perfect, but the game clearly did not agree...and I was not able to determine why.
I was really looking forward to receiving this game and was so disapointed. Yes it does give you a workout but it gets old very quickly and not enough variety in excersises. Another thing that was annoying was the fact that I was working out really hard and the controls just don't synchronize well with the game...all my actions are so delayed. I stood still for about 1 min and my character was still working out lol...I think any games made by Nintendo themselves are better when it comes to synchronization.
I was really excited for the biggest looser and loved it at first but once I really started playing around with all the features I began to get annoyed with the game. I never found a pause button and if I clicked on the wrong section there was no back button once you started a workout. I also disliked the fact that with the custom workout the game would suddenly go really slow in between work outs. I also did not think there was a lot of variety in the workouts. Hopefully next time they create this game these sort of issues will be resolved
