Okay, it seems from your comments that you have really used this game and given it a chance to do what it claims to be able to do. I was all set to click and purchase this game, based on the description and majority of the reviews, but fortunately I hesitated for a moment and THEN read somewhere that I needed to use the balance board in order to make this game interactive! Not many of the reviewers have addressed what you need to use with this game and strangely that information is NOT included in the product description which is my WTF moment for the day.
I thought I would be able to use this Dance Workout with the Active Life interactive mat I purchased for the Nintendo Wii Outdoor Challenge game but now I am not sure. Do you know if this game has to be used on the balance board? I've heard that later models of the balance board are wider but there is no way I am willing to risk breaking, or spraining, one of my OLLLLD ankles by working out on a balance board. Just thinking about the game requiring that type of interface makes me wonder if the designers ran this game by their legal team!
I really do want and need to kick start my cardio but I can't see much benefit in trying to raise my heart rate only to bring everything to a screeching, or would that be screaming, halt by working on any type of elevated platform. One little misstep near the edge of the board would be enough to cause serious injury and, as someone who broke an ankle at 20 years of age by stepping with my foot half on the sidewalk and half on the grass, I know of what I speak. :-( I would appreciate the help if you do happen to know if this game would work with the aforementioned mat. Thanks
