Advantages: Fitness in your front room.
Disadvantages: It seems a bit weird to me exercising in the front room.
This is the Nintendo Wiis first foray into the world of the gym and it will give you an indication of where the world of interactive gaming is heading.
In these days, days when the average teen weighs more than their parent and survives of a daily intake of fast foods and frozen meals nintendo have taken a step to try and get people active. This is Wii Fit a game which uses the nintendos controllers and balance board to attempt to give people the whole body workout they require from the comfort of their own living room.
As far as the gameplay goes it is a mix of applying your weight to the balance board and using your controllers to perform various actions.
There is a wide selection of activities which can be undetaken in this Wii game from running, yoga, step aerobics, football heading, walking the tightrope to hula hooping plus many other exciting mini games.
To start off you input your details, height age etc into the system and then you weigh yourself and undertake a simple balance/ reaction test designed to work out what your physical Wii age is. The younger the better. The idea is everyday you do this test then do some excercises and hopefully, after time, your Wii age will come down to nearer your actual age and with this you will feel better within yourself as your general fitness improves.
I found this all very simple to use and good fun. Being a complete yoga beginner the poses were all clearly explained by the instructor on screen. I love the hula hooping and it took me back to my youth.
This game is again done in the Wii's own cartoon like style all very crisp and smart but graphically nothing special.
I would rate this game
It is a great idea and I am sure it will be the begining of a rush of similar games entering the marketplace.
Please note: Don't get to upset if you character blows up to the size of a beach ball at the beginning. Stick with it and your characters size will come down.
