I will say upfront, I am 23 years old and was an athlete in college. I am not new to working out and pushing myself hard. I did not expect the Wii Fit Plus to get me back into shape like I was in my prime, but I did hope it would help me lose some of the weight I had put on since graduation.
I will rate this game in three categories: Fun (for those of you who don't care about getting in shape but think this game sounds like it would be fun to play), Exercise (How good of shape you can get in using this), Gameplay (if this were a normal game, how would the controls, ease of use, etc. come into play).
Fun: (8/10) I do think the Wii Fit Plus is very fun - especially for young kids or older people who like being a little more active. Sometimes sitting on a couch playing games can get boring, and we want to get up and stretch out. This is the game for you. There are several games that will keep you interested, from DDR-type games to leading a marching band. There is even an obstacle course.
Exercise: (6/10) As I said, I am a little picky here. Do I think I could get in better shape using just the Wii Fit Plus? Yes. Do I think it would take me twice as much time to do versus working out in a gym? Yes. This is the problem for me. It seems like everything here is for people who are either out of shape or have a LOT of time to put into this. You can't string together exercises so you have to wait and stop your workout between each new set. Also, a lot of the activities are not very intense, so it would take a long time to get my heart-rate up. All-in-all, this could be a great way to get in shape for some, but I do not think you will get in great shape.
Gameplay: (7/10) This game works well with the balance board, but there are a lot of things that can be frustrating. My favorite example is the obstacle course. Running and jumping can be pretty spotty.
Overall: (7/10) Fun game that has its flaws. Lose some weight - don't expect to get cut.
Wii fit plus is an awesome game the bike ride is awesome and so is the boxing and kung-fu i would highly recomened this game it is totally awesome another game on wii fit plus is the marching band it is awesome game to Wii fit plus is awesome.
