I have "Family Trainer outdoor challenge" which is a lot of fun for the family but imprecise. Still, because of the uniqueness and fun aspect it is a valued member of my wii game collection.

The "software only" extreme challenge game has been listed in many retailers catalogues; but when I try to order it, they either don't have it or can't get hold of it. I already have the mat peripheral from the first game ("outdoor challenge") and don't want another mat with this second installment for obvious reasons. It's be an insta-buy if it wasn't for this problem.




Managed to get hold of the game with mat at a cheap price and must say I am really disappointed. All they ahve done is re-hashed some of outdoor challeges' games whilst numerous others merely use the individual squares as substitutes for the buttons on an ordinary ps2/GC controller. Your essentially "button tapping" with your foot.

Eg. The rock climbing merely has you kneeling on the ground and tapping two squares alternatingly to climb a rock face. Poor.

Outdoor challenge actually contained a lot of actual exercise and unique activities.

Another great wii controller. Adds up to the challenges to wii fan and gamers. I think for first timers, it would be quiet hard to comprehend which foot to move at the same time thinking which hand and arm to move. But with a little practice, I say this will be addictive.
