After owning Wii Fit & Plus, then buying 'My fitness Coach', the latter didn't even compare. The graphics weren't as good, and it felt too difficult. This made me think that this game probably wouldn't be as good as Wii Fit. However, I was wrong.
EA Sports Trainer is a great game, possibly better than Wii Fit. I've had the game for a week now, and everyday I have been motivated to go back to EA Sports Active to do my workout and fill in my journal. The workouts themselves are great, I've opted for the '30 Day Challenge', which consists of a 20 minute workout everyday and burns around 100 calories. After the workout I always feel like I've actually done something, and that I have thoroughly worked my body (and this is on low intensity!).
I feel as though it is better than Wii Fit because it produces a decent workout for you everyday, with varying exercises and pushes you to work out the hardest you can. It makes you want to come back to it day after day because you feel like you're achieving something.
The exercises are easy to follow along, however, you do need to make sure you hold the wii remote still when needed, as it does delay the exercise by a few seconds while you get 're-instructed'. Sometimes I move too quickly, and this does upset the game a tad.
The accessories that come with the game are great. The resistance band is fine for me, I noticed other reviews said it didn't provide enough resistance, you can change this by doubling it over or shortening it. However, the way it is, is perfect for me. The leg strap is good, however when I'm running it does sometimes work its way down my leg. And if I do tighten it up enough, it starts to feel like my circulation is being cut off a bit. But for most exercises it seems to be alright. There is also an adjustment strap for people with slightly smaller thighs.
Really great game, very pleased with it. Really feel like a combination of the 30 day workout and a good diet will help me to slim down a bit!
