Thank You for all these reviews. They are very informative. I will look into some of the ones I don't have.

I agree that a few of the wii fit games can be good exercise; I am found of free run.
Other games that like are Gold's Gym Cardio Workout (it can use the balance board for a few exercises although I don't use those). I am currently in love with the original EA Active (finally got it when I found it on clearance since they are discontinuing it).

the cycling gets harder when going up hill or on the beach... but easy going down hill.
It seems more real than the flat running.. and you won't fall down if going too fast. Just be careful not to fall off the cliff. LOL

You are so right about wii fit. that boxing is great.
I also like the Island Free Cycle, you try doing the whole 30 minutes on the beach and you get a good work out. Oh and don't forget the hula hoop. whew

Trust me the Wii Fit Plus games can get you sweating you just have to advance to the higher levels to do so ... my fav is the Boxking that really got me going (my HRM had me in my target range for close to 20 minutes so that is a good session in my books).

Some favorites:

Walk It Out (balance board compatible)
Just Dance 1 and 2
EA Sports Active - any of them
Gold's Gym Cardio Workout (balance board compatible, I think)

I love all of those!

I got the new EA Active 2 for Christmas, and BOY, does it kick my fanny! Having the heart rate monitor is great, too. It'll be a great tool as I continue improving my fitness, but, much as it has been with the other EA games, I'm going to have to work my way up to some of the tougher exercises. I still can't do some of them in the old one, or the 2nd one, let alone some of the newest stuff in this game! I'll get there...

I just tried out our new ACTIVE game. Wow. Got me sweating and my heart rate up. And I was on a beginner level doing just cardio. Mind you I completed 30 minute power walk on the treadmill right before it too. I have both Wii Fit Plus and Active-in comparing the two, I think Active is and can be more intense a workout. I can see it being a good tool to use in overall fitness. But just like any game, they are all only tools to help us reach fitness goals. I don't think any ONE game is the golden answer to getting fit.

EA Sports Active is a great one, and is definitely my most used fitness-type Wii game.

I just got a Wii Fit Plus yesterday (belated Christmas gift), and I tried out the game that came with it. Although it has some fun games (I like bicycling and skateboarding and the hula hoop!), none of them seem to really last long enough or be intense enough to get a good workout.

I'd like to buy some games that use the balance board and provide a lot of calorie burning but also a lot of fun. Suggestions?
