I bought the original Wii Balance Board specifically to get the yoga software, and while many people correctly complained that the yoga routines where clunky, it actually worked well enough for me. I loved having the feedback from the balance board as I did a pose and discovered that I wasn't balancing as well as I might as I watch the red dot move around, and that is a kind of feedback even a personal yoga instructor cannot give. I believe the Wii has fantastic potential for yoga and I was thrilled as I'd see my scores slowly improve along with my balance.
So after a while, I started looking for a more sophisticated version assuming that some developer would improve on the rudimentary original version. I saw this title and pre-ordered the software, waiting for months as it was delayed and delayed. I assumed that they were really developing something special. Wrong. My guess is they started a project that overwhelmed the developers and they finally gave up and decided to throw it out on the market as is and recoup what they could before they sunk more money into what they found to be a losing project. That would explain the delays.
The software takes almost no advantage of the balance board. The canned routines are nothing but weak animations with lousy voice recording and no feedback from the board.Read more ›
I popped in the disc and it had me create a profile, ok, that's easy enough. I was presented with 3 game modes, story, training, or routine. I figured I would start with story mode and see how the game plays. We select our instructor, then we get a video from Anja Rubik saying why she loves yoga, then the game loads again. Finally we get into the yoga temple. For the first 5 minutes you follow your instructor around the building stopping to look at every statue and painting along the way, we finally get to a room that has a painting with a pose inside of it. I finally get to the room and it teaches me that pose. Basically, the story mode is going from room to room learning each pose one at a time with a couple minutes of break in between. Argh.
I went back to the main menu after a while and selected routine, it turns out we can select between 9 different routines with different target areas, heart, headache, etc. I choose one of them and the voice says 'follow my movements' and bends over. I bend over, at this point I can't see the screen, and sit there for a minute. I decide to start looking up every 5 seconds and eventually he moves and starts doing another pose, at about the third pose the voice says 'remember to hold your pose' or something along those lines. It just spits out a random sound byte every once in a while. I guess if you did this a bunch of times and had it memorized it would be good, but if you have to keep turning your head to see what you are supposed to be doing at any time you kind of lose all concentration on what you are supposed to be doing.Read more ›
The real problem, though, is when you actually go to do a pose. The balance board and remote are only used to check your form if you are in story or training mode. Then it really only seems to check to make sure your hand is steady and your weight is evenly distributed. Even this part is up to you as the game doesn't give you feedback.
The routine section is even more disappointing. The routines are supposed to help you with different things like a headache, a cold, etc., but they're more like random grab bags of unrelated poses with no warm up and barely any instruction. If the graphics were better, the lack of instruction wouldn't be as bad. However, even with an HD-TV, the instructor is a pixelated blob whose head you can barely make out let alone a complicated yoga pose.
I think some of the routines are even unsafe -- they include poses like crow that are very advanced but only give instructions like "bend forward, bend your knees, put your knees on your arms, yup that's it you should be good . . . " Unless you are a very experienced yogi, you are going to face plant on your living room floor when you try that.
Please, please save your money. Even wii fit yoga is better than this.
