The scenery in the game should be familiar with anyone who's seen the TV show. The opening screen is an exterior shot of The Biggest Loser Ranch, and throughout the game you'll see familiar settings, from the gym to the Boxing Ring to the locations where they do challenges.
When you start the game, you're asked to create a new profile. You enter your name and if you have a balance board your weight is displayed (warning: unlike other Wii exercise games, this one doesn't conceal your weight, so anyone in the room can see it).
After this, you can allow the program to choose a personalized program for you. This is where things get pretty neat. The first step is for you to go through a 30 minute "fitness test". This basically runs you through a series of different exercises at 5 different levels (light, moderate, challenging, hard, and intense). You perform the exercises as best as you can. The system will use the Wii remote and/or the balance board to check if you're doing the exercises.
At the point where you can't do any more, the system will automatically end the test and recommend that level for you. I really liked that the levels were really accurate--"challenging" really meant challenge, and "intense" really meant intense. For me, by the time I got to the challenging levels, I was already out of breath and sweating.Read more ›
In a couple of weeks, I will update on the progress I do throughout the game because there is so much more to gain from this game, and I look forward to seeing all the many programs. I can feel the burn throughout my body so there must be something to it.
OK this has been a few weeks down....And honestly the game itself is awesome I love it..But the programmers seemed to have rushed things a little there are many problems down the line, the statements are not lined up accordingly(For Example when you win the weigh in, it still says you did not do so well and are up for elimination, some of the exercises they tell you to rest in the middle of jogging?..Read more ›
(1) If you have a hard floor (like mine is hard wood with a carpet in the center), you will need a good yoga mat since you are on the floor on your knees in some moves.
(2) Take your measurements before hand: Neck, Chest, Waist, Hips. You will enter these in after your fitness test. It only allows you to enter whole numbers so you have to round.
The exercise routines are tailored to each specific user by putting you through a fitness test. The longer you're able to perform the exercises in your fitness test to a satisfactory level the more intense the exercises become. When you reach a point where you just can't go any more, the game sets that level as your default for future workouts. What this means is that you don't get the feeling that the exercises on the screen are way out of your league, and at the same time you don't feel like you're wasting your time and not burning any calories. I have found that many times when I want to quit I push myself a bit harder knowing that the game isn't asking me to do things that I can't do. I'm the one that determined what level to work out at.
Another great thing about this title is that it quickly moves you through your routines. The exercises are explained while the person on screen is doing them at full speed. You get to watch them go through two to three repetitions before you have to jump in. This is much more efficient than the slow motion explanations that Wii Fit gives you. The result is that you're still breathing hard from the last exercise when you start the next one. This makes it feel more like an actual routine, and not just a series of unrelated exercises. Don't worry, there's a break every 5-10 minutes for you to grab a drink of water or run to the bathroom if need be.Read more ›
