I think Wii Fit is a really good game because you really help your body, and kids say that "They don`t." But one day, THIS IS TRUE! at gym class, we did running and I got tired but the morning after the next day I played Wii Fit and then in running I had MORE energy and MORE strength to run! So, since I am a kid, I find it good for kids too.
