I bought this game not knowning how great it would be. I tried it the day i got it and WOW did it ever give me a workout. My son is 5 months old and being winter time i do not want to spend the money for a gym membership, so i tried this. It is AWESOME. First thing i liked right away was the fact that the trainer worksout at the same time you do and there is a person on the screen representing you. The trainer constantly talks to you, telling you to keep going and how great of a job your doing. Also you can track your calories burned on there and your weight and goals you have. You also get to choose how many times a week you want to workout and for how long. I recommend this game to ANYONE who wants to get a great sweat workout without the price of a gym membership...its great to be in the comfort of your own home! plus you do not need anything besides a wii remote if thats what you choose...it also has over 100 different exericises so your not always doing the same one:)

Buy this Game for a Great Workout without the $$$$
My wife loves it
My wife and I are trying to get back into shape after years of neglecting our health (let's be honest here right?) We have a few exercise games as we feel if you have fun while doing exercise you enjoy it more and stay motivated. This is one of the better games out there because it's a good starting point for people like us who are just slowiong getting into exercise. The exercises are not that hardcore that they turn you off. Plus you get daily tips and recipies, things like that. While we also play wii fit plus, ea active, and your shape on wii, I highly recommend this game as well.
Worth the purchase
This game has been the greatest game purchase I've ever made. Of course like some people have mentioned there are times where the game won't pick up some of your movements but its expected its only a game. I am currently doing a 12wk workout and loving it, I even got everyone in the house doing it, my 2yr old son enjoys trying to participate in some of the workouts. I would def recommend this game to anyone. I am 338lbs and for me most of the workouts are easy there are a few that I have some issues but like I am told "Pain is just weakness leaving the body".
This is a great product. I am actually enjoying my excersice at night now....I love that you can still do other exersices and you are able to log them on this game....Would definately recommend it to anyone that needs to loose weight and tighten muscles as you go...gives you a good workout!!!
Gives you a good workout, but missing a few things
This game gives you a very good workout and has a lot of great features. However, you cannot pause your workout, skip exercises or redo exercises - as a mother of an infant I need to be able to pause the workout occasionally to tend to my son and I cannot. There are also some exercises that I cannot do for physical reasons, but the system will not let me eliminate those from my workout. This is frustrating because skipping exercises lowers your score and makes the trainers "yell" at you more.
In the video they go way to fast without teaching you one minute you are on the wii board and next your not also even if you are not moving and doing the what they show you the game still thinks you are so its saying yours loosing cal. but your not even moving
A good challenging workout. The exercises that require you to put the remote in your pocket do not register well for me but I still enjoy the workouts.
Pretty good can be better
I have been faithfully doing the Biggest Loser Wii game for just under a month. I work out with it 6 days a week. Unfortunately, each day I am getting more and more frustrated and upset with the game. There are some good points to the game and I will outline both the good and bad that I have found. I am starting with the bad because for me it outweighs the good. Negatives: 1. Sometimes the remote does not keep up with your movements, which causes your performance bar to go down. It becomes frustrating when you are doing the movements correct and Bob/Jillian are telling you that you aren't doing the exercise. This happens more with fast paced movements. There are lots of fast paced movements because it is meant to get your heart rate up. For example when you are jump roping you have to swing your hand just right for the movement to register and not turn your hands in small circles like Bob is telling you to. This is my biggest gripe with the whole game. There is nothing worse than working so hard and then having Jillian yell at you "Do you want to get skinny or not". At first I thought it was that I just didn't have the movements down yet but that isn't the case. I even had my husband watch me to see if I was doing something different/wrong than what Bob was doing; I was doing it right. Many people will say who cares what the performance bar says - you are getting a good workout. When you are getting into the game you strive for the performance bar to stay high. Bob compliments you and you get a higher score for your workout. Also, if the remote isn't working at the end of each section Bob tells you How you could have done better or you didn't do so well. It is irritating. 2. When I work out with Jillian, Bob's voice still comes on, often Jillian and Bob are talking at the same time. It is annoying enough that I just don't work out with Jillian. Sometimes Bob even talks over Bob. 3. The comments are repetitive and don't always go with what you are doing. It works like this: If Bob is your trainer, Bob is telling you what to do, like punch, punch, punch and another Bob (the voice over Bob) is throwing in comments as well; like good job or you have to dig deeper. The voice over Bob talks about taking an active rest when you are in the middle of jumping jacks. 4. Sometimes they forget to tell you what to do or the voice over is late, so Bob on screen is on to the next exercise and you still have to get down on the ground. This doesn't happen a lot but when it does it is confusing. 5. You have to put the remote in your pocket a lot. And then it often doesn't register and the remote falls out. I don't really think they could do a lot to fix this but it is a hindrance to the game. Most of my yoga pants that I wear don't have pockets so I stick the remote in my waistband and that seems to works, often even better than sticking it in my pocket (when I have them). 6. You can't change your goals. I would have liked to set a realistic goal for myself (for now) and then continued on with my ultimate goal. But if you set a close goal then you have to reset everything once you reach your goal. I think. Because I haven't completed it I am not exactly how this will play out but I have not found a way to adjust your weigh goals without creating a new profile. There are positives which is why I gave it three stars if they fixed the problems it would be a five star game without a doubt. Now the positives: 1. It is a good workout. You pick the level you want to work out at. The levels are: light, moderate, challenging, hard, and intense. You can pick out how long you work out for. You can also shuffle up the exercises if you want. If there is an exercise you really don't want to start with you can shuffle and it changes the workout. The exercise you like/didn't like may not be there though. 2. You can customize your workout. You don't have to have a wii fit board. There are fewer exercises you can do without it but it doesn't seem to matter. You can add a stability ball and resistance band to your workout. I love doing sit-ups on the ball because it takes the pressure off my back and allows me to do the sit-ups correctly and do more of them. I don't like adding the resistance band because you have to hold both the wii remote and the band handle in your hand. It just doesn't work. Maybe if you have really big hands. This may work better if I had a resistance band that didn't have a handle but I have one just like the one they show on the game. 3. The graphics are good. You can pick where you want to work out: pool side, gym, boxing ring, or the yoga pagoda. You can pick what type of workout you are doing: circuit training, yoga, and boxing. You can also pick if you want a full body work out, or butt, abs, etc. You can really customize the game for you and where you want to be. 4. I like the health and wellness challenges. There are recipes that are included in the game. 5. The game shows how many calories you burned and after the workout you can even see how many calories you burned per exercise. 6. It is pretty cool to win a challenge. Before your weigh in you have a challenge just like on the show and it is hard to win but you feel a since of accomplishment. If you don't have the wii fit board you just enter your weight from your scale. It is also awesome and motivating to win the weekly weigh in, which is a combination of how well you do on your exercises, if you won the challenge and how much weight you lost. 7. I love that I often feel like I have a personal trainer. This is the one thing I really like over the Biggest Loser DVD workouts. 8. The workouts are broken up into sets. I like they give you a change after each set to get a drink. Some workouts have four sets and others will have seven or so. Side Note: I have not played in the free play or versus modes so I cannot comment on how those are but I am assuming the same problems would exist and so will the good points. Conclusion: I am disappointed. I probably won't return the game (I think it has been to long). I hope to be able to buy something different soon maybe the wii active 2. I have heard that is good. I will continue to play this until I have something else but would I recommend buying it - NO. If I find it gets better I will update.
I have only been using this for a week but I have really enjoyed it!
I did not like this video. I hate having to switch the controller from hand to hand. Then you have to put in your pocket and my exercise pants do not have a pocket on it. I just expected it to be differant.
