Returning Gamer review Fri, 23 Oct 2009

Wii-Fit is Nintendo's offering to the exergaming world. It offers a motion sensing balance board. This aims to build of Nintendo's success with the Wii, but struggles hard to not feel like a fad-gadget. With Wii-Fit Plus around the corner, I wonder whether we'd be better off going back to the Gymn.

It had been a tough summer for me. I had recently become unemployed and didn't have much in the way of funds. I spent most of my time at the gym prior to getting the chop at work, but at GBP35 a throw, it was the first expense to be cast out into the cold.

Family Gamer review Tue, 11 Sep 2007

Wii-Fit is going to be big. Regardless of this review, the wider press reception, or even the adoption of hard-core gamers, it will be the story of 2008. This will all be driven by mums, dads, kids and even grand parents who will all discover the joys of a fitting follow up to Wii-Sports. What's more, after happily spending GBP 179.99 to play Tennis, Golf, Boxing and the rest, Wii-Fit's GBP 69.99 price tag will seem like a bargain.

This inevitable success would be hard to swallow for gamers, were it not for the superb implementation, pitch perfect Wii aesthetic and sheer level of fun in this game. Many will no doubt bemoan another games corporation raking in huge amounts of money from gamers. But anyone who steps onto the Balance Board will soon admit that it is hard not to fall in love with the Wii's latest accessory. Hey, at least it's not just another plastic shell (following Zapper and Wheel); this thing has some serious electronics within.

Following the success of Wii-Sports in getting gamers up off the sofa, Wii-Fit further establishes the Nintendo Wii as a lifestyle product. At GBP 69.99 it was an expensive addition to the Wii (and possibly a risky strategy for Nintendo) but one that was well received and widely adopted. This high attach rate means that new games will now make use of its balance board peripheral.

Fitness games are only recently becoming a genre in their own right. Previously, rhythm action games would cover these titles. With the release of the Wii and related peripherals however, a new Exergaming genre is emerging.
