The best thing to me was that you could choose to use the Balance Board instead of just shaking the controller like those dance games. You don't really "walk" on the board since you aren't supposed to lift your entire foot, but you do feel the burn. At least I did in my lower calves.
I didn't play it as much as I wanted to, but from what I did it was pretty good. Not all that exciting but if you want to get a little exercise and some use out of that expensive Wii Fit board then it does a decent job.
You can also use a Dance Dance Revolution mat which I didn't have.
I'm a walker with more than a few 5K events under my belt and I thought this game would be perfect for days when it's raining or too hot to walk outside. I have a spacious living room so I have a lot of room to move around. However, it was really challenging to get the game to register my steps with the controller and nunchuck, and I felt too restricted on the Wii Balance Board. I also got frustrated with trying to hit the capsules while moving around. I really loved the music and the statistics provided, but I'll be sticking to my regular walking routine and continue to supplement it with Wii Fit and Just Dance on days that I can't be outside.
