Review: Get Moving Family Fitness from Jumpstart for Wii

Submitted 17-06-2010

Get Moving Family Fitness is a new Wii game from Jumpstart. This series hosted by Brooke Burke starts off a little goofy with her introduction, but the games inside are all fun and games. They can be played by 2 players. They involve components of major sports like passing (basketball and football), setting the ball (volleyball), and running. Be ready for a workout. To compete against your kids, you’ll have to get out of your chair and really move. After 10 minutes, I needed a break and had a little residual soreness from muscles that don’t get used this way very much any more.

Get Moving is rated E for Everyone with Comic Mischief by the ESRB

Get Moving is $27.99 on Amazon.

Pros:

  • Really does get dads and kids out of the chair. You have to get up to compete in these games.
  • Uses more lifelike motions to create the action. You really have to pump your arms to make players run or shoot.

Cons:

  • Goofy intro by Brooke Burke didn’t really add to the kids’ experience. Seems tacked on and just wastes time. Likewise, her avatar.
  • Personalization features weak versus many other programs. Avatars lacked a “bald” option, so I did get to have a full head of hair again for the first time in ten years.
  • Can only be played by two players at one time.
