Wii Fit attracted millions of new players to the world of video games. Now Wii Fit Plus offers a range of new features and enhancements to help players reinvigorate their workouts, along with exercises and balance games designed to keep them fun. Players will find a new dimension to the Wii Fit experience as they easily set their own customized workout routines or choose 20-, 30- or 40-minute workouts based on how much time they have available. Users will also be able to choose from specialized workout routines that focus on an individual's personal fitness goals or certain target areas. And with the addition of activities like Skateboarding and Rhythm Kung Fu, players will be using the Wii Balance Board accessory in a variety of new and fun ways.

New Activities: Wii Fit Plus comes with 15 new balance games and they definitely improve my motivation to spend more time playing Wii Fit. My daughter and I are having a lot of fun playing the kung fu, juggling and snowball fight games (individually; no multiplayer games). However, all the new games are hardly physical. At best they will improve your balance in the long run, but they will not make you sweat and will not provide any physical challenge. If you like Wii Fit for the fitness exercises, then Wii Fit Plus will not have much more to offer to you (only three new strength activities and thee new yoga positions; nothing new for the aerobic activities).
Workout Routines: I must admit that I was very disappointed with the new workout routine features. My first thought was: "This is great! I will create a routine for each day of the week!". But it did not turned out at all as I expected. At first I started playing the pre-made routines to see how it works. What I did not like up front with this new feature is that the game will not record your results in the activities that are performed through a workout routine (I like my results to be recorded when I beat my high score!). Another draw back is that you cannot increase the difficulty level of the activities in the pre-made routines. I then tried to create my own routine to work around these weaknesses, but then I found out that you are only allowed to choose strength activities and yoga positions in your custom routine, and again you cannot customize their level of difficulty.Read more ›
Even though this game still needs improvement I would say it's the best workout Wii game currently available.
What I love about Wii Fitness Plus
+ The graphics are sharp and crisp.
+ The exercises are highly enjoyable and are a challenge at the same time.
+ The exercises make you feel like you are really biking, flying, etc.
+ I can see my weight fluctuation and therefore keep tabs on correcting my mistakes (like overeating or under exercising).
+ I have lost 10 pounds in 6 weeks and I'm still going strong.
+ You can add pets. Even if you don't have any, you can still add fake pets like we did! :)
+ You can do a no interruption Yoga and Strength training routine that actually improves your ability. I guess it's because disruptions or confidence boosters or deflaters (like scoring) can defocus some people, like myself.
+ You can now track your waistline and steps done.
What I don't love
- Customization only allows for Yoga and Strength training and you can not see or save scores. This must be to reduce time in between exercises so it will be great if they find a way to reduce the "wait" time between exercises without skipping the "all important" scores. :)
- Not all the Training Plus are balance games. For example, there is Biking and Martial Arts. The other commenter said she didn't sweat but we don't find that to be the case. Perhaps it's how she's working out or perhaps her level of fitness is quite high. For the average person (who are doing the exercises correctly and keep moving between exercises), I think you are going to sweat.
- Wii age seems meaningless. Perhaps "levels" or a bell curve is a better way to figure it out.Read more ›
+ Up to 8 people (including pets) can play.
+ calorie counter and daily calorie goal
+ Exercises for a range of abilities; includes strength training, yoga, aerobics and balance exercises
+ Exercises are scored for points (adds competition and fun)
+ Create exercise routines
+ Daily body test (BMI and Weight) and wii fit age
- Cannot change weight measurement from Kg to lbs (Canadian version)
- sometimes exercises are a little tricky at first (I promise, with a bit of practice, they will get easier)
I've had a lot of fun with wii fit plus, more than I expected for a game full of exercises. If you haven't had the will power to exercise everyday, this will help. It may make you want to exercise every day and enjoy it.
The new game's also automaticaly converted to Metric - so KGs instead of lbs - because our country was set to Canada, there's no option to run convert the Wii fit plus back to lbs, the could have shown both KG (lbs). Our only recourse was to switch the whole Wii console to US.
If you like the Wii fit for the balance games then this is for you, if you want an improved fitness interface, you won't find it here.
