Product Description

Product Description

Utilizing the Wii Balance Board and following step-by-step instructions from a variety of in game Yoga Gurus, players will be guided through a variety of popular Yoga exercises. Players will be able to monitor their progress with a dynamic tracking system and set up a schedule to follow. The yoga guru, acting as your own personal trainer, will make suggestions to you based on your progress and computations taken from the Balance Board. The Wii Remote and Balance Board will be used for many poses to determine the player’'s balance and any movements or shifts in weight by the player will be detected and recorded once the pose is complete. Yoga for Wii has three play modes – Story Mode where players start the game as a beginner and finish as a yoga guru; Training Mode where players have the opportunity to learn new poses to add to their routines; and Routine Mode, a set of consecutive yoga poses either user-created or pre-created routines. There are mini-games to test the player’'s knowledge of yoga and predetermined routines created to help alleviate common ailments. Yoga for Wii is beneficial to anyone wanting to try Yoga and discover its unique way of providing strength, flexibility and endurance training while at the same time creating a powerful connection between mind and body.

I waited patiently for months for this software to be released. It finally arrived and now I just want to cry. Even if you faithfully tried to use the software, you wouldn't be able to do the proper breathing because you'd be laughing so hard (or sobbing in my case). What a disaster.

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.

We purchased this game hoping for the ability to have a yoga disc that provided us with a new yoga session each day. What we got was not worthy of a single workout, let alone a daily routine.

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.

From the description and the preview video, I had high hopes for this game -- beautiful music, pretty graphics, how could it go wrong? They did get the music right and the story mode is full of good information including mention of chakras. However, the graphics are terrible and you can't really explore on your own -- you have to just follow the guide around. I couldn't even figure out how to interact with anything.

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.
