Reviewed: Yourself! Fitness

One of the great unexplored ideas for video games has been the potential health benefits of more active games. Nintendo briefly explored the idea with a track & field title on the NES, and Konami's Dance Dance Revolution series has been lauded for its physical activity requirements, but they are side benefits; a game designed fully around the concept of physical fitness was only a pipe dream until responDESIGN put out Yourself! Fitness a few months ago.

It should be noted that Yourself! Fitness isn't necessarily a game, at least not like a traditional game. It's more of an improvement on the old workout video idea, an expanded and highly intelligent format designed for much the same goals, but escaping many of the traditional complaints and offering some added bonuses.

Is it worth it? For gamers who've wanted to lose a few pounds, or stay in shape, or who can't take the traditional workout methods, most definitely. My personal experience has been wonderful so far, and shows no sign of stopping.
