I have the active life and it is great. Truly gets your heartbeat pumping. I have found it hard to stay at the same place on the mat without looking down and losing concentration. But I can tell you that it is very upbeat and fun. A few of the games are cheassy like the kayak but I love everything else. The sprint is great for getting the heartbeat going. Fun Fun fun and would highly recommend.

YouTube video of a commercial for the game which shows some of the games. And shows Jillian doing them. I can't wait. And you can compete in multi-player.

Gamestop is saying October 28th also now. Bummer.

Thanks for sharing those screenshots! Of course, they make me want the game even more now.

I pre-ordered mine from Amazon yesterday, which is still listing the release date as October 28. I guess it'll get here whenever it gets here.

FYI - earlier this week, Majesco put out new screenshots for the game, which appear to show some activities that hadn't previously been mentioned, like kayaking. Pretty cool. Although it's kind of disappointing (but not surprising) that they're not integrating the concept of Miis at all.

So does Amazon US and EB Game US, so I will have to go and see on the weekend if it is listed yet at EB Games in Canada

Just check when at lunch not on The Canadian EB Games System yet.

I haven't yet as I'll wait until I'm heading that general direction already. But the Gamestop website has the option for you to pre-order.

2 months from today this comes out!!!

10/6/2008 for $39.99 and remember sometimes it helps to pre-order. I usually go to the local Gamestop and put $5 down to pre-order. Saves me from having to search for a game later.

They finally revealed some more details on this game.

From:

wii.ign.com/articles/889/889115p1.ht
ml


Some of the unique activities include:

• Boxing: Players begin in a fighting stance and are directed kick and punch the heavy bag in front of them with left or right punches and left or right kicks at varying heights. Speed and intensity are key in completing this challenge.

• Handcar Pump: Recruits must move their handcar along the railroad tracks using their arms, legs, or both for maximum power. They'll have to watch out for the objects that lay on the tracks, leaning to either side to avoid hitting them. Recruits will also need to periodically work harder in order to make it up approaching hills on the tracks. This activity is sure to give a great workout.

• Cannon Attack: Players will need to equip their cannon with the nearby cannonballs by performing a series of deadlift exercises and then, using the Wii Remotes or the Balance Board, aim the cannon to hit the targets ahead. Players will undoubtedly "feel the burn" in this activity.

• Punching Bag Dodge: Recruits will have to run though a course dodging the punching bags that are swinging from the trees at various angles, lean from side to side and duck down low to make it though safely. A great challenge designed to increase core strength.

It sounds like quite a workout that will be loads of fun.

I've bought a couple of her DVD's after watching the Biggest Loser this season. I figure, if she cant motivate me, then no one will. And to think she will be on the Wii....That is very cool... I cant wait!!!

I'm with you on the pre-ordering.

By the time this comes out I should be in good enough shape to really participate. In fact, just the thought of it helps to motivate me. Because I keep thinking I need to get in better shape of Jillian will kick my rear when I attempt her bootcamp.

I did mention this one before, but seems like should mention it again under this heading. I for one will be pre-ordering. This one makes use of the Fit Board.
