"Walk It Out" has not gotten a lot of reception by the game critics but it's a lot of fun! I waited until I read the reviews on Amazon before I purchased this game, the only thing I wished was that I had bought it back in January the day it came out!!!! "Walk It Out" has been compared to Animal Crossing and other town building games, but you collect chips by walking and then the chips you collect are used to purchase items. I'll admit, at first I wasn't impressed by the title of "Walk it Out" or the box art, but I feel that Konami really did put A LOT of thought into the actual game. Yes, there is a little bit of room for improvement but I love walking in "Walk It Out" and I didn't think I could be so addicted to such a simple and fun game. If Yes, I can (and do) exercise quite a bit outside in the real world, but I'm a gamer at heart and "Walk It Out" is actually fun: both as a game and as an exercise. There is so much to find and collect in Walk It Out and once you get the hang of game it's really fun. you think about it: it is hard to walk for 1-2 hours outside and NOT notice that you've walked for that long, but there has been many a day(or night) that I've intended to play Walk It Out for only 15 minutes and then suddenly realize that I had walked for 1-2 hours and had so much FUN doing it!! The music is great and the game keeps me coming back every day. There's over 100 different songs and you can customize your own playlist to listen to the tracks you want to. The graphics may not be Xbox 360 or PS3 graphics but there was a lot of work put into them, the game seems to come alive at different parts of the day, if you play at night the Island looks like it's dusk(or night time) and there are different items available at various times of the day! There are a lot of options in the game, you can change how quickly you have to step in rhythm to the music or you can even make purchasing items on the Island cheaper, or you can even make the game harder, it's really up to you! Also, you have different options when it comes to playing styles, if you like using a DDR mat you can do that, or if you like using the balance board you can do that, or even the standard Wii and nunchuck(in the pocket) routine. I highly recommend at least renting the game and trying it out, but I for one: am actually glad I bought it straight up instead of renting it first. In the 6 days I've had the game, I've loved EVERY MINUTE and I have had some awesome exercise results! In 6 days I've played Walk It Out **I've burned 2478 calories! **I've walked 100,865 steps! **That is over 27.3 miles!! In only 9.5 hours of playing this game! If I had done 27.3 miles around my neighborhood in the past 6 days I would have been bored to death!
yes: I recommend this product
