Wii Fit U





Wii Fit U 


Many years ago Wii Fit was a revolutionary video game. It improved the images of gamers, and helped families get healthier. That was back in 2008. Here we are five years later, and exercise video games have improved and progressed. Families have numerous choices to exercise with video games. Games like Nike+ Kinect Training is leaps and bounds better than any Wii Fit game. Which is why Wii Fit U is such a disappointment. Nintendo made minor upgrades to a franchise that is years behind its competition.

Wii Fit U looks better than Wii Fit, but not at the level of other exercise games. The Mii characters feel really outdated compared to training with real looking people. The sounds are also marginally better. The island used in past games have been brought back in Wii Fit U.

Here lies the biggest problem with Wii Fit U - rehash. Too much of this home console light exercise game has been seen and played before. There are some new exercises and activities (dancing comes to mind), but the vast majority families have paid for before. And most likely played these exercises to death. So its a hard sell to expect families to repay for the same content on the Wii U. Especially when you can play your Wii Fit on the Wii U without paying any more money.

Wii Fit U annoyed me with the constant control shifting. Use the Gamepad for this activity, put it down and get on the balance board. Use two Wii Remotes, get on and off the balance board while using the Gamepad. The control schemes in Wii Fit U are all over the board. It never felt natural. It is still too easy to do exercises wrong in this franchise and be rewarded for it.

Families can sweat thanks to Wii Fit U. There is a free thirty day demo in case your family is interested in trying it before you buy it. Nintendo is also providing multiple packages at different price points which can help families out.
