Active Life Outdoor Challenge





Active Life Outdoor Challenge 


Active Life Outdoor Challenge is another Wii video game that improves the image of the gamer, and the video game industry. The game comes with a dance pad kind of pad for walking, running, and jumping. Namco Bandai should be commended for releasing a video game that burns calories. The inclusion of the Mii's brings in players from all demographics. Getting exercise is fun again with Active Life Outdoor Challenge. Close to twenty exercise games are included, some of which can be played as long the player does not make a mistake (like fall off the conveyor belt, or miss a jump in the jump rope).

Active Life Outdoor Challenge has a simple look to it that is pretty deceiving. A lazy reviewer might have negative things to say about the graphical content. I noticed quite a few special effects in the graphics. The accuracy between the screen images, and what the player is doing on the pad is also quite noticeable. I did not notice the comic mischief the ESRB noted. The Mii's can fall down when a mistake is made, but that hardly seems violent to this reviewer.

Active Life Outdoor Challenge has great music and sounds. There are plenty of cute sounds that make this Wii game a family friendly one. The agony of defeat motivated me to try harder next time. The Wii also has some of the most amazing musical tracks, and Active Life Outdoor Challenge joins this chorus. I did not hear any offensive sounds while playing this Nintendo Wii home console video game.

There are few video games that I feel have a perfect replay value. Active Life Outdoor Challenge fits into that esteemed league. There are so many fun exercise games, levels, and extra content that this Wii game is more than worth the price of admission.

Namco Bandai got the controls down pat with Active Life Outdoor Challenge for the Wii. The pad works wonderfully, and exhibits a very intelligent design. My only complaint is I could get off the right buttons while jumping, and end up losing in a game because of that. This game is fun for the entire family.

I am so happy to see that more Active Life video games are coming because sequels are desired here at Family Friendly Gaming. Learning exercise, balance, and control are the main lessons in Active Life Outdoor Challenge. I recommend that you go out and purchase this Wii video game once it is available for all of the different reasons presented in my review.
