could be better, much better

I like the activities and the option to choose the order and go with it but I do not like how you try your hardest and you barely walk or slightly jog. Its too hard to get your body to make your character move the way you want it and sometimes the direction you go on the "game" is different than how you are standing toward the tv. The log walk.. you walk regardless whether you move or not and the log jump and tires are VERY hard to make work. Its frustrating more than fun.
The color choices on your outfit are too dark.
The music is nice.
You have good duration choices.. 5 to 60 minutes.
You need a controller, nunchuck and the wii board.
I like the activities better than wii fit but wii fit moves when you tell it to and is not frustrating. I like wii fit better.

Here's how to get perfect stats... shake the controller and nunchuk. There you have it. The secret to physical fitness success. It says "compatible" with the Wii Fit balance board. Not so much. The game lacks feedback, so one doesn't know if the exercise is being performed correctly. The example/directions screen that pops up before each exercise is hilarious. It shows an image of someone performing the exercise in fast forward. Good luck with this one. I was disappointed.

We ordered this game after it was highly recommended by a friend. We attempted to play it for an hour one night and immediately returned it.

The controls did not seem to communicate with the game at all, no matter what configuration of remotes/nunchucks/balance board we used. In fact, at one point we stopped moving all together, and the game continued on as if we were still interacting. Another time, we were highly exaggerating our movements, and the character on screen held still as if we weren't doing anything.

In summary, the only thing we are happy about is that we rented this before we forked over way too much money to buy it.
