    I actually got my copy a couple of days before it was supposed to be released from a video game store. It’s mostly cardio boxing, although there are other exercises including Punch Dog, reverse sit-ups, back strengthening and squats that utilize the balance board. There are 4 other exercises that have to be unlocked as you progress through the game. (I just unlocked Jump Rope today, on my 4th day.) Gold points are earned to be spent in the Shop on gear, and additional items go on sale as you go.

    After initial “registration”, you choose your trainer, either Alex or Nina. Other trainers are unlocked as you progress. (I just unlocked Brenda.) Each day, you have a choice of doing a prepared workout or an ala carte workout. After the prepared workout, you get to leave a punch stamp on the calendar, indicating that you’ve completed that day’s workout. There are Boxing Examinations you can take to test yourself.

    As of yet, I haven’t noticed the scale feature and I had to enter my weight manually when I first set up my profile. All in all, it’s a great workout- more interesting and interactive than Wii Fit (which I still love). I was sweating after about 5 minutes, and I’m STILL sore from my first workout! There’s less jumping and hopping around than My Fitness Coach, which, with my bad knees, is a big plus. I look forward to unlocking more of the features of this game!

    Update: 4/12/09- I’ve unlocked a couple of the “Special” workouts in the Shape Boxing, but only done Dodging, which is really tricky because you have to throw punches at the same time! I’ve unlocked all the locked excercises in Exercise and they are “Roadwork” (running & boxing a bear that crosses your path), “Sandbag” (punching 10 sandbangs in the allotted 3 minutes), “Log Chopping” (using the remote to saw through a log in 3 minutes), and “Jump Rope”. I’ve unlocked another trainer named Bob, who looks like the BIGGEST guy on Muscle Beach, and a two new outfits for the trainer I’ve chosen (Brenda), as well as a few new items that were given to me for reaching a X amount of punches. I’m still loving this game and have lost about 4 lbs since I’ve been playing it (along w/Weight Watchers). It’s not hard on my bad knees and I feel the burn where I should.

    If you enjoy cardio boxing and want to work up a sweat, then this Wii game is for you. After doing the basic lessons and moving on to the regular ones for only a couple of hours my arms and shoulders feel like I can’t lift them anymore. I’m pretty sure I’ll be sore tomorrow morning.

    This is basically a cardio boxing game. The rest of the exercises are short games and workouts that are unlocked as you progress through boxing exercises. It looks like there are 6 regular ones and 4 that use the balance board. This is the extent of the balance board usage. None of the boxing exercises use the balance board. This is a little disappointing, but since you can’t jump on the balance board it would be a little difficult to do the boxing footwork which is bouncy, without damaging the board. Still, I thought the description of the game was a little misleading since the use of the balance board is limited to leg raises, push ups and a couple exercises that are already included with the Wii Fit.

    Still, I think this is a good addition to my Wii Exercise list because it’s engaging and holds my interest and I like games where I can build up the score and compete against my past scores. Here are a list of the pros and cons that I’ve discovered so far:

    Pros:
    Choice of music. There are several different music choices that you can preview and play during your workouts.

    Choice of settings. You can choose a gym, forest or seaside setting.

    Lots of movement and easy to understand instructions.

    You acquire points which you can use to buy things at the gym store, like different outfits.

    You can pick your trainer (male or female) and there are several different training levels so you can play according to your abilities at a pace that is good for you.

    Great response time on the controls and great sounds. “Pow! Crunch! Wham!” The movements and clicks of the Wiimote register right on. You can also click through scenery pans and other peripheral scenes to speed the game. (Thank you, UBI Soft!)

    Cons:
    The graphics are a little ragged on an HD TV with component cables and 480p settings. Wii HD Link Component Cable
    They are also a little simplistic compared to other Wii games, not bad, just simplistic.

    The balance board is used in only 4 of the side workouts, not in the main cardio boxing.

    All in all, I still think it’s a good addition to my Wii workout collection and it’s one that’s fun enough that it’ll get used often. It’s good arm and shoulder exercise that will compliment my We Cheer Wii game and a good way to work up a sweat without getting bored.
