"CNET's Review is Right on the Money!"3.0 starson by flashfriday
Pros: Strength and Aerobic exercises
Cons: No ability to modify workout, balance games gimmicky
Summary: I thought the CNET review was very accurate and expressed a lot of the complaints I had about Wii Fit. The big drawback for me was the inability to create my own workout program or to extend the length of some of the exercises. For example, I'd love to just set the Step exercise to run for 30 minutes but you can't.
Another drawback for me was the balance games. While they are a bit fun at first, they quickly get old and I don't think they really improve your balance. In fact, I'd say that some of the Strength exercises are much more effective in this regard.
There are also a few games/exercises that will frustrate you beyond belief. For example, no matter how perfectly I do the Rowing exercise it always says I'm out of the box and chastise's me.
Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy a lot of things about the Wii Fit but I think that it could've been much, much better. I love many of the Strength exercises and I find myself usually sticking to those for the most part. I have toned quite a few muscles in the process and I am pleased with this. However, once I memorize all the Strength exercises I'll probably sell the Wii Fit.
