Disadvantages: Don't buy if your expecting it to be a game
Now let me tell you I own probably every fitness wii game going and this one is by far the hardest! Its based on the American Biggest Looser tv show where over weight people battle it out to loose weight.
This is suppost to be a 'game' however it is like doing a really hard exercise dvd except you can't cheat and rest because the wii board and controllers know what you are doing. Having tried other wii exercise games wii fit, ea active, fitness first, my health coach. I expected this to be the same be warned it is not. I did set it on the hard mode though.
You start off being weighed and entering you statistics onto the wii memory you then you join The Biggest Loser challenge. You work out and it does mean workout not just spin a hula hoop or lightly jog. You will do squats, lunges, knee lifts push ups etc it's not a game for fun let me tell you. There are a number of structured work outs for you take part in and then a special weekly challenges, oh the joy by this point I really did feel like I was on the show crawling across a line and chopping a balloon free. You also have weekly weigh-ins and eliminations if you badly so be warned.
You can personalize the programme to meet your needs your able to set the challenge length and difficulty this is where I went wrong setting it on the hardest lol that will teach me to think I am fitter than I am. You can also set goals weight loss, toning etc you can pick your trainer Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels from the show feature on the game. You are also able to make up your own routines.
The game also has added features like healthy lifestyle tips and 50 healthy recipes for you to try.
The game also allows you to train with someone else so you can get a competition going with family members to see who the biggest looser in your house is.
Overall although it worked me hard it is enjoyable and I would say if you keep it up this game would definitely help you loose weight I lost 4ib playing it for 2 weeks. My problem is I get bored to easily and chop and change what I like to do for exercise every other week.
The game is easy to follow the graphics are pretty basic but then again you don't really need a load of special effects for working out. It was also frustrating sometimes that I couldn't seem to get my wii remote in the right position for some of the games so I kept failing.
A great workout, not one for those looking for a fun game. It can be purchased now for a little as £8 on amazon this may be due to the workout factor lol.
