Very Enjoyable program
This review is from: Wii Fit U with Fit Meter Wii U
Pros: Really helpful program. Fit meter helps keep you thinking about it even when you're away from home, and being able to quantify your daily life into calories burned is also super helpful. I got program access when I bought my wii fit meter, so the software ended up being free for me. Even at retail it's worth every penny. Doubly so if you're a gamer like me who has no motivation (or money) for the gym or more R/L oriented exercise. Making it a video game is a lot easier for me to quantify than lifting weights or repetitively running in place on a treadmill.
Cons: Much like older versions, this version has detection issues. Occasionally it will flat out fail to detect steps during advanced step, or I'll flick the controller one way only to have it not read or give an inverse reading [I get this a lot on the tetris-squash game thing. . where I swing right to left and the console reads left to right movement and costs me my ball. It's frustrating to have a really good run on something, only to have it bounce a read and destroy an otherwise great run. I just keep telling myself the points are not the reason I'm here. . . . SOMETIMES I buy that ;)
Other Thoughts: I used to use the original Wii Fit program on the Wii [the OLD Wii fit, not plus] so the addition of advanced sped up rhythm boxing, rhythm kung fu, and all the dance stuff was new to me. I did well with it before (until the Wii died and I didn't feel like re unlocking all my workouts) But now it's *SO* much better! Being able to make my own workouts and not have to jump through menus is wonderful! I use this in combination with a no sugar as organic as possible diet, and while I only started the week before Christmas, I've already lost about 12 lbs .. and that's WITH the traditional holiday meal mayhem!
