It's true. Wii Fit won't necessarily make you fit, but it's a clever way to pull people off the couch and get them moving. Nintendo's new exergame centers on a finely tuned Wii Balance Board that measures the weight distribution between your right and left feet. Stand on it and enjoy the 40 exercises that consist of yoga, strength training, cardio and the most fun, balance games like hula-hooping and bopping soccer balls with your head. We'd like to see more of these quirky games, and the more traditional exercises, while challenging, will likely get old in short order. Lack of a serious multiplayer or party mode is the biggest omission, but since the game installs a Wii Fit channel on your system, we can only hope that means regular updates are in the works.
