I’m one of the crowd. A sheep in rebel’s clothing.
I bought WiiFit on Saturday.
It’s actually pretty good. It’s not going to be for those who are already really fit but for your average gamer and/or their parents it’ll do a world of good assuming people stick with it. And I think people will stick with it.
Graphics are appalling, sound is nothing special and, really annoying, if you have it set to English it doesn’t give you the option of using metric measurements. That’s really ever so annoying to me. So mine’s now in German.
The “games” themselves are a varied bunch. The aerobic ones seem a little lightweight, the strength ones are hard though (notably the press-up ones), yoga is hard and the balance exes are the fun bit. So far they’re varied enough to keep some interest going.
The major oversight for me is that you can’t program it to run a series of exercises in one go IE as in a general workout. So you need to do your one exercise and then start up another involving using the wiimote. Further problem is that you shouldn’t be carrying the wiimote during the exercises. Mind you I suppose that means you just bend down and straighten up more.
I can see it getting a bit dull but I’m hoping that Ninty will send us purchasers some more content via their online service.
I’m impressed overall.
Ooh and I got my “age” down to 26 yesterday. Woohoo!
