- Wii Fit
The number one selling video game of all time.
The number one game for the wii.
This game is awesome, it gets you up and active instead of sitting on your butt playing video games. It has various challenges in it, and various forms of challenges.
The sound and graphics aren't the best, but lastability and gameplay are both great.
Here is a quick review on the graphics of Wii Fit.
Yoga/Strength Training-these graphics are really bad. It's all black and white except the trainers' clothes and the background. The edges are really pixelated, and there aren't any great effects. The font is good though.
Balance/Aerobics Games-these graphics are better. They have good terrain texture, good font, good effect graphics, and very colorful. The graphics still are pretty bad, even for a Wii game.
The score probably would have been lower, but the point of this game is to get active. Good graphics can distract some people, so it might be better not to have good graphics.
The sound quality and variation is great.
On the yoga and strength training challenges, the trainers' constant and repetitive hints and tips get annoying. During each repetition you do on any given exercise, you hear a hint, but it's most likely a hint you've heard a hundred times before.
The aerobics and balance games have good sound though. The variation is great, and all of it is in sync. The effect sounds match with whatever you are doing, and you don't get the constant hints or tips.
I will divide this into sections.
Yoga-the most boring of all. You have the deep breathing exercises, the flexibility exercises, and the stretching exercises. The deep breathing ones really relax you, the flexibility ones really test your flexibility and help you improve it, and the stretching exercises greatly help with avoiding cramps.
Strength Training-the second most boring group. You have about 12 challenges. You have exercises that help with abs, some with legs, and some with arms. Each exercise presents a new challenge, and you can even unlock extra repetitions with them. There are three exercises in which you challenge your trainer to see who can do the most of whatever exercise you chose (choice between push-ups, jacknives, and plank). These ones are really great and help you a lot in improving in those exercises, but it's annoying that you can only do a set amount at one time until the trainer stops.
Aerobics-you have nine games that include running, hoola hoops, dancing, and boxing. There are two levels of hoola hoops. One level makes you rotate clockwise, and then counter clockwise, very helpful in aligning your pelvis. The boxing is easy, but you have to remember the pattern. The dancing has three levels, two of them you must follow a pattern, and the third is free dancing. You also have three levels of running. Two of them you must follow your trainer, and the third is a free running. The free dancing and free running exercises have a minimum of 10 minutes, and a maximum of 30 minutes (I believe).
Balance-these are the funnest games. You have nine challenges. They include:
Hitting soccer balls with your head by shifting your weight, sliding down slops through flags, and rolling marbles into holes by shifting your weight. Some are quite easy, and some are pretty difficult. Of course, it depends on how good your balance is and how well you can control it.
You can play this game non-stop until it breaks or your Wii breaks.
The unlockable items all get unlocked within the first month, so that lowered the score by one. But as for gameplay lastability, it's all the way up.
You can set your own goals to reach, which encourages you to play this game more.
That's all I really have to say about it.
Graphics and sound lowered the score.
I recommend you get this game as soon as you do (unless you still have the copy that came with your Wii, of course). If you live in a place like Japan that doesn't sell the game with the Wii, get this game as soon as possible. If you bought a used Wii at a rummage/garage/yard sale, and it didn't come with this game, I recommend getting this game as soon as possible.
This is definitely worth the money, and really helps you get in or stay in shape.
