Spring training on the Wii
Leading off is Racquet Sports, which was released this week. Racquet Sports uses the same camera that was packaged with Your Shape, an exergame which got lukewarm reviews, perhaps because many members of the targeted market just don’t want to watch themselves work out. So it’s nice that Ubisoft is looking at other ways to use its camera in an active fashion. (You can buy the game with or without a camera.) With no need to hold a remote, you could use an actual tennis racket in this game and get a good arm workout, provided no lamps are in harms way.
On deck (corny, isn’t it?) is The Cages, a baseball game that focuses on batting practice. I love going out to the batting cages when the weather isn’t too hot or too cold; it’s great mental as well as physical therapy to whack balls over the fence. The Cages makes use of Motion Plus add-ons and also has a calorie counter, according to Amazon’s description.
