5.0 out of 5 stars Good Cardio workout! September 10, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am an owner of a Wii Fit, so I wanted to try another interactive game that moved my whole body. This game is just as great as the Wii Fit. Here are a couple of pros and cons of Namco's Active Life Outdoor Challenge:

Pro:

Will move your entire body - if you looking for a cardio workout. There are a lot of games that you can play by yourself, against someone or as a team. You can use your Mii; and the game will collect fitness data that you can gage your fitness over time.

Con:

My kids kept jumping off the mat and off the small squares and triangles. They are not looking down at the mat, but up at the television. So you have to make sure your eyes and feet are coordinated enough for you to watch the screen and ensure your feet are in the right place on the mat.

The mat itself is like the Wii Remote so while was reading the instructions my daughter was using the mat to move the instructions before I could finish reading them. I thought I was going crazy because I wasn't using the actual Wii Remote to move to the next screen. (This will eventually become a pro when you really get the hang of it)

My daughters and I played for about 90 minutes and we were all sweaty and tired by the time we said ENOUGH! Between this game and Wii Fit I don't see how anyone could not get a good cardio and strength training fitness regime.

I am anxious to see how Namco will franchise this "interactive mat" into more physically challenging games...i.e. an Active Life series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great exercise! September 12, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not a kid. In fact I'm almost 60 and I bought the game for myself after getting Wii Fit a couple weeks ago and really enjoying the games that are included with that.

I LOVE this game (or series of small games) If you want a good workout and you're a kid at heart, you're going to love Outdoor Challenge. I've only played it by myself so far but I can tell you that it works every part of your body. I was dripping with sweat after 10 minutes. Some of the games you do standing, or I should say running in place and jumping over logs or jumping on a trampoline over water or jumping rope. There's a Mine Cart game where you're leaning to the side and lifting one foot while pumping both hands up and down to propel the cart at ever faster speeds. Or sitting on the mat and rowing with the "paddle" (wiimote) trying to get to the goal as fast as you can.

Like the Wii Fit games, it keeps track of your scores and the scores of others that play so you are constantly trying to beat your best scores and get top scores in the games.

This game is too much fun to waste on kids. Get it for yourself! It'll make you laugh out loud!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Workout! September 20, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm in my 40s, been working out for many years and I'm a big fan of Dance Dance Revolution which stripped 50 pounds off me. I don't have Wii Fit, but this is the first game I've tried for the Wii that really gives DDR a run for its money.

At the beginning, go to Free Play mode first as it lets you practice all the minigames on their easiest levels. Once you get the hang of them, go to the courses on Outdoor Adventure mode that will unlock higher levels as you pass them.

The third mode, Exercise Training, has a variety of courses that range from about 5-10 minutes long. You can't fail the games on these courses; just keep playing as well as you can for the allotted time. One of the courses, 10 Minute Marathon, simply has you walking or running for 10 minutes. You can use this course for interval training; for instance, run for 10 seconds and walk for 20 seconds (or the other way around!) for 20 rounds. The Outdoor Adventure mode also allows you to design your own courses, although it seems you can only save one course at a time.

You get "Activity Points" for completing the exercise courses, which are put on a daily graph along with a Brain Age-like stamp. Unfortunately there is no calorie counter in this game (unlike DDR for PS2) and it doesn't record exact dates you worked out, just "2 days ago", etc. It also doesn't record your weight, but maybe that makes this more suitable for children than Wii Fit.

I'd like to add that this game is VERY beginner-friendly, especially compared to another Namco exergame for Wii, We Cheer (another excellent game, but with a huge leap in difficulty level). Active Life can be played by anyone - young or old, from sedentary overweight folks to athletes.

4.0 out of 5 stars First try, looks good September 9, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just received the game Last night, Sept. 8, and have the chance to play for about 2 hours with my family. First of all I would like you to imagine my 7 years old boy when I opened the Amazon box and saw the video game; at first he though it was the Wii Fit, but later realized it was the Outdoor challenge and was not that excited.

We when straight to play, I should tell you, my kid changed his mind, he had a really good time, it was probably the funniest time we have spent playing Wii. The game is not at the same level as the Wii Fit, would not replace playing out doors and seems to be aimed at the younger set; still it's kind of challenging, so I would say it's a good alternative to burn some extra calories; spend some time and have fun with the family specially the kids.

Over all this collection of minigames are played with a special floor pad that looks a bit like a DDR dance pad. What I liked about the pad is that allows you to play the game by yourself, or have two people playing on the same pad together.

We tried games like

Mole stomp, where you stand in the middle of the pad; as moles pop out of holes on screen, you then step on the corresponding pad to "stomp" it

Speed skating, for this game you need the Wii remote to move left or right and pump your feet, the faster you pump the faster you go.

Running game, is similar to the speed skating game--you pump your legs to run as fast as possible, the difference is that you need to jump to avoid some obstacles that could slow you down and no need for the Wii remote.

Mine cart, where you stand on the left or right foot to navigate turns as a mine cart speeds around an underground track. Also Wii remote has to be moved up and down to give the cart more speed.
