    Is Wii Fit worth it

    It looks pretty fun and the accessory is being used more and more often now. but its 90 bucks. I have the money but i could get two normal priced games for about the price of that. If you own wii fit tell me if you were disappointed or not.

    It depends what you're expecting.

    If you want a fairly engaging game that will serve as a good, interesting break from the average gamer games every once in a while, WiiFit is a pretty good title.

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd

    its great for a workout on a rainy day. the miniature games are fun. The games coming out and out, like snowboarding have a lot of potential. I like it and its a good thing to have. Everyone who visits loves it. Its just not something i use everyday. if money is tight i would hold off but if you have the cash its worth it.

    It's certainly entertaining. If you expect to use it as a primary workout tool, then you'd be deluding yourself. The chief problem with using it in that way is that the game lets you select the activities you prefer, which means inevitably it falls victim to the natural human tendency to opt for your favorite activities while avoiding the ones you dislike.

    But with that said, I enjoy the balance games, and even if you don't do the exercises/balance games, the "Body Test" can be a useful way to track your weight and BMI if you have the discipline to do it every day. (I am well aware that BMI is not as accurate as the Wii Fit would have you believe! But still, having it track your numbers for you is easier than doing it yourself, and in my experience the software does a good job of weighing you accurately. I stood on it in the nude, so as to avoid any errors due to clothing weight, after doing the same on an accurate digital scale and the numbers matched.) The problem is, just like with anything of this sort, be it exercise equipment, foreign-language software, etc., it's hard to discipline yourself to keep up with it.

    At least if you do a crappy job at a game, it doesn't insult you.....in the Wii version of Pitfall, if you lose at the "Native Games," you hear a South American native chieftain say, "Like the leeches that live in our swamp, YOU SUCK!"

    I think Wii Fit is worth the 90 bucks. I particularly like yoga and the mini-games. The scale alone match my doctor's very expensive scale.

    The balance board is also a fun peripherial for other games. Shaun White's Snowboarding Road Trip is a kick, and Skate It is fun once you get the hang of it, although it took me awhile on the board. Even We Ski has its moments. (I like games where the whole body gets into the action.)

    As has been pointed out already, there are quite a few games coming up that are also going to use the balance board. It's probably going to become a necessary item to get the maximum enjoyment out of many games. When sales of Wii Fit start to decline (although there aren't any signs of that happening soon) I wouldn't be surprised to see the Balance Board become a stand-alone peripheral.

    In my opinion, it's absolutely worth it. The games are fun and challenging and you stay active while playing. As a matter of fact, a friend of mine got it for Xmas as has lost close to 30 pounds. She works out on it 30 minutes every day.

    I say it's a great but for $89.00.

    Its a good game, I'd say its more like Wii Sports but with more involvement. You get more of a work out than you would other games.

    I'd wait for it to price drop myself but if that all sounds good to you go for it, I have it and I'm not disappointed with it.

    I got bored with the Wii Fit game after a while, but the board has a lot of potential! So, I'm glad I got it just for the balance board. I have since used it to play Tetris Party, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party, and Shaun White Snowboarding.

    Since you buy them both together it's probably worth it. The game Wii Fit is okay, has some interesting/fun parts and some parts that are thrown-together at best. The board, however, is pretty cool. I still think there could be a lot more great games for it in the future.
