Really Bad

I was very excited for this game before it came out. I like the Wii Fit game, yet wanted something to get a more intense workout. I was hoping this game would do that yet it's not even close. This game is so boring. After trying 2 or 3 of the badly designed exercises you realize there is no chance you could ever get into a routine of working out with this game, and it's just not enjoyable at all. Don't waste your time trying this game. It's not worth it.

Although this game was fun, and I DID sweat in the 30 minutes that I played it, I was equally frustrated with the huge lag time between my movements and my character's. During the punching bags, the log jump, and the dodging the punching bags exercises, my character didn't even move!! I wonder if Jillian even tried it out before she approved its production.

As a once in a while alternative to the Wii Fit, maybe this game would be okay, but it left the drawing board WAAAYYY too soon! For now, I'll stick to the Wii Fit.

We received it one day and sealed it to send back the same day.

We couldn't get the mii to perform correctly and got frustrated and quit after about 10 minutes! This is the worst game we've ever played.

We thought we should try it ourselves anyway after reading the poor reviews. At least we can say we tried. We're glad we didn't purchase it based on the Jillian Michaels name.

If you're like us, you'll want to see for yourself. Just don't expect too much.
