That's great -- I have been waiting to see some reviews before I got the game.

I've seen that Jillian has also come out with a 2010 Ultimatum for the wii - hope it's better than the 2009.

I def want to try the BL wii game - think it'd be a great addition to my WATP dvd workouts. I recently bought the new Wii Fit Plus - and I love it so much better than the original - more games and challenges. I spent an hour on it my first day doing all the new stuff - i was so sore afterwards
I love watching the BL - it's so motivating!

I dont think so, I saw the ad on tv with Bob - and said it was board compatible - which means it's not required.
my mom found an ad for target - they have a wii fit plus and balance board with the BL game and cookbook and 1 month free trial to the BL club website for $137 - which is a great deal.
also - kmart has the BL wii game on sale for only $19.99 (its normally twice that price). my kmart doesnt have it in stock-so my mom is going to check her kmart (since we live in separate states).

I have played wii fit a bunch and its pretty good, but I'm looking forward to this game to see if its a little more intense. I hope it is. I do sooo many Jillian Michaels workouts on Exercise TV and they are really rewarding and difficult. Hopefully the video game can be another outlet.

I just bought the Wii Fit Plus, the Wii Console, an extra controller and nukchuk thingie and the BL game, all for a mere 425 bucks! Zowie. But I have done it 2 days in a row and am sore all over. I have about 60 pounds to drop so I am hoping this will get me going in the right direction. I do love my little animated Bob, he is just so cute!

my mom was able to buy the BL Wii game at her Kmart for the 19.99. so I'm thrilled...she said she'd try to get it mailed this week So for now I'm working out using the new Wii Fit Plus I got (its awesome, if I stick to the aerobics and new trainings I can burn 1100 calories in 75-100 minutes) Hope the BL game is as promising.

Default I don't recommend Jillian Michaels 2010

According to this review of Jillian Michaels' 2010 version of her Wii game, it's not worth your time. With top-quality fitness games like Wii Fit Plus, EA Sports Active, and The Biggest Loser out, there's no reason to go with a substandard piece of programming, unless you are a fanatical Jillian Michaels fan.

Personally, I think the new version of EA Sports Active will be the way to go. The controls are spot-on, and the exercises are pretty fun.

well my mom just bought me the BL game, but hasn't shipped it out to me yet. So hope it's a good one I love the fit plus i had the Active, but wasn't using it much, so i sold it on ebay. but now see they have a Active More Exercises game, was wondering about getting that game - just hope i wont need the original to enjoy the latest game.....might rent it when i have time. have been working on a quilt for hubby all weekend - trying to get it done and mailed to him to enjoy while it's cold in iraq before he comes home in Jan.

I keep debating about which Wii exercise program to get and I'm thinking BL might be the one to get!

I got the Biggest Loser game for Christmas and can't wait until tomorrow when I'll have the first chance to try it out.
I've only had the Wii Fit Game so far and find it a pain to keep going back and forth between the sections so hoping the BL game is good. I LOVE the BL show so am really hoping it's useful.
