It would also help if the music could be turned off. It gets annoying after a short while. Going back with the B button works on some screens, not on others. Sometimes the program will ignore your preference for female or male trainer.
Worst of all, it's far too easy to unlock exercises and more repetitions (although even more repetitions on all exercises wouldn't hurt either). There's no physiological concept behind the unlocking. I scored zero points on one exercise three times, yet I unlocked more repetitions.
I could on. I have lots of little niggles, maybe 20, yet I love the overall concept. Seems the Japanese are firm believers in taking breaks, so you can't take shortcuts from one exercise to the next.
Wii Fit Plus doesn't fix this - a wasted chance. WFP allows you to make your own training programs but isn't flexible enough. You get to pick exercises, but you don't get to choose how many repetitions of each you want. You don't get to set up different plans for each day of the week.
As a programmer I'd love to fix all these things myself, but NIntendo made the Wii a closed platform, so I can't.
I'd pay for more ball-balancing floors, more slalom tracks, more rivers etc. Did anyone notice that the flooors in the ball-dropping game are inspired by the letters in Nintendo Wii?
One good thing: As the Wii does NOT use a camera, you can do entirely different exercises than suggested. Just pick an exercise that does not involve the balance board, e.g. running, and the Wii will write up the time spent anyway. Pick the Cobra if you know yoga exercises that WF does not offer.
Disclaimer: This is for a Wii not connected to the internet. YMMV, although I don't know why it should.
