I decided to buy this game because of my health issues. I can not do high impact and many days I don't want to leave the house. I thought this would be a good way to learn Pilates. It starts out where you just click around this island...like Pool, etc... The problem is you have NO idea what you do at the Pool...so you just have to randomly click to find the right excersize for you. And then its do one, click another area, do another one, etc.... Slowwwwww.... I tried to do where you pick a few, and do them at one time and not have to click around the island. Well the warm up gave me my first clue, stretch to the side, foward, side.... over and over and over.... and she never tells you when to switch. You just have to keep looking up. I wanted to stop right there before I fell asleep. This game sure will not motivate you, it made me want to nap. Lastly the other help she gives you is just stupid stuff you all ready know, like don't snack when your not hungry, don't eat late at night, etc.... Well duh!!! This is one of the most boring games ever. Do yourself a favor and play WiiFit Plus and skip this.
Terrible design makes going from one exercise to the next a pain. Cues indicating when an exercise was over were minimal (when you can't look at the screen often). Maybe most awkward was the ambiguity of determining when the exercise was being done well/correctly. The exercises themselves were fine. Maybe someone less accustomed to better game interfaces and more into pilates would dig it more. So frustrated I sent it back immediately. Overall, design is just awkward.
