Call of Duty has been a prominent first-person shooter throughout the years. The gripping action and heart-racing missions have proven to be addictive amongst players. Now with Modern Warfare 2, all the factors have been improved and will surely make fans and gamers begging for more in the end.

Modern Warfare 2 continues the legacy of the Call of Duty saga but this version is the least traditional among the other Call of Duty games. The main game package is divided into three pillars of gameplay. Fans who like single-player games will still have their main campaign, gamers who like to cooperate with other players either through a local or online connection will have the new Special Operations mode, and last is the multiplayer which got even better. Each mode is 100 % standalone that it does not have any connection with the other modes, so you actually get to have three different experiences in one game.

Gamers should definitely try the single-player campaign mode first, which is absolutely back and more intense than past campaign modes. Fans will truly appreciate the improvement in the mode as they are thrown into the bustling streets of Rio de Janeiro, the very cold mountains of Kazakhstan, the very dusty roads of Afghanistan and a whole lot more destinations. Modern Warfare also offers stunning visuals that are steps over Call of Duty 4 and World at War. There is an emphasis on intricate terrains in the environment, interesting weather effects, and a whole lot that adds improvement to the chaos and action of the entire game. A great audio also accompanies the stunning visuals with effects from returning weapons and a very captivating score by Hans Zimmer that will truly complement some game scenes. With the dazzling visuals and a captivating audio, you would feel like you are watching an action film when playing the game.

The campaign mode has its issues, though. For newbies, it’s quite short. But despite its shortness, Modern Warfare 2 is definitely more chaotic; brought by better visual effects, upgraded production values, and very tough scenario designs. Realism is even more exemplified in Modern Warfare 2 with better visuals, which is more pronounced when it comes to bloody scenes. There surely were effects in previous versions that showed blood with the screen getting red. But this time, blood splatter can truly be noticed as more real-looking on your screen throughout the game. Though others find this as a distraction, it’s still quite amazingly awesome.

Modern Warfare 2 is also the debut of the Special Operations or Spec Ops mode. This mode is actually an arcade-inspired challenge mode. The mode can be played with a single player for the most part, but is actually intended to be around two people’s team play. The Spec Ops mode is divided into 5 tiers that have missions where there are three possible stars to gain based on the level of difficulty in each of the 23 missions in the game. Fans and gamers will truly be surprised with this mode because of its entertainment value and is actually longer than the single player campaign mode.

The multiplayer in Modern Warfare 2 got even better, as well. Being the front bearer in the Call of Duty saga, Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer visuals and effects indeed got a good boost. You are guaranteed to be in for an engaging experience with the multiplayer mode enhancements.

Overall, Modern Warfare 2 really proves to be one of the best first-person shooter games out in the market. But there’s a catch for those who prefer to play the single-player campaign mode. It is really short and it only forms part of the entire Modern Warfare experience. If you opt to immerse on all three modes, then you will definitely have one hell of an experience and action with Modern Warfare 2.

Wii Sports is undoubtedly the best seller in today's video gaming, the Wii Fit bundle that comes with the innovative Balance Board closely follows and just slightly behind. Now here's good news. Wii Fit Plus now takes the place of the original Wii Fit, so aptly named, because of the many enhancements that come along with it, including additional mini games and several new exercises with the much needed extra layers of tips for calorie burning.

Nintendo simply recycled the core Wii Fit package for its latest version, which is not bad really; most of these features, the menus, interface system, virtual trainers. Balance games and strength training exercises, are well-executed and definitely worth trying out. And here's one delightful thing, you can even bring in you previous workout data from its predecessor so you can just continue from where you left off. What's more, if you haven't unlocked any of the advanced routines before because you weren't really committed, you don't need to sweat it out as they are now automatically opened for you in Plus. All other added features can also be accessed right away.

Speaking of added features, Plus does boast several worthy ones. For starters, three new yoga and three strengthening exercises have been added. Also noted is how Nintendo has emphasized putting on more balance games in Plus, a total of 15 well-planned extra modes that are really a lot of fun! The games are great but are too easy and as far as exercises go, you can't expect to sweat and shed some pounds if you just play them and avoid strength training and yoga.

The one remarkable enhancement that is likely to become a favorite of many is the calorie counter. Get this, every activity in the game has a metabolic equivalent of task, also called METs, number. Most of the mini games are assigned MET ratings of 2, which is about the same as the most leisurely walk you've ever embarked on, but the more rigorous exercises, such as push-ups, have higher rates. Here's how the calorie counter works, just multiply your weight by the MET ratings you get for each exercise you perform and you'll get the amount of calories you burned.

This can either be encouraging or discouraging; encouraging, because you can envision a scientific demonstration of your workouts, and discouraging because the outcome don't really register double or triple digit calorie numbers. Understandably, since the Wii Fit Plus workouts are relatively simple and easy, it will take you sometime to burn those calories.

Don't get disappointed now but Nintendo has decided to warn customers not to make the calorie counter as the be-all and end-all indicator of calorie burning; rather, that you are well advised to still rely on BMI or body mass index scale as your fundamental gauge of success or failure with regards to burning calories. In a sense, this can make you have second thoughts as to the accuracy of the results when you use Wii Fit Plus.

Another thing that you're going to miss with the Plus is the inclusion of any online functionality. It doesn't even have leader board features. Wii Fit Plus would have benefited from similar online functionality such as that offered by Nike Plus, which lets users track how far they've run and compare the results of their efforts with family and friends online. It is truly a major lapse on Nintendo's part not to include this feature, and offer instead a fast and easy local multiplayer mode where players take turns, which doesn't even come close to motivational.

One thing that you have to be thankful about is the measures taken to address one of the biggest issues of the original Wii Fit, which was the inability ot create a customized workout program for individual preference and needs. This time, you can conveniently go to My Wii Fit Plus Routine section and choose your own set of exercises that are designed and aimed at trimming down specific body areas. This you can do either by using the presets that Nintendo has or creating your own routines from scratch.

To sum it up, Wii Fit Plus is a fantastic way to burn some calories while simultaneously having fun. There are issues that could have made the Plus even stronger, had Nintendo given the appropriate attention to resolve it and did not ignore those few shortcomings. Still Plus is a lot less expensive that paying for a gym membership. With proper diet and by using it right, you can actually lose weight and tone your muscles, while having a fabulous time.

Sony Playstation continues to head on the right track in reforming their successful PS3 video games into PSP formats. From their popular Resistance series, here comes Resistance: Retribution, which continues the story of James Grayson, the British soldier on a fight against the Chimera force, aliens trying to invade the Earth.

In Resistance: Retribution, developer Bend decided to do some tweaking to the game for improvement and adjustment purposes especially to more restricted specifications PSP could offer. First off, instead of the first person point-of-view, they switched to a third-person over the shoulder perspective. It does not give you the same Resistance experience but is effective for the PSP version, which also becomes a solution on the tight controls it has been developing over the years.

Because it is smaller, the PSP handheld version has several limitations and adjustments have to be made. The left stick is used for movements; while aiming is done through the four face buttons found on the other side. This is actually a good thing because of the auto aiming and target lock-on features that you have to rely on. If your weapon is at the right direction, the game itself will guarantee that you hit the opponents. You can opt for free-aim by tapping the d-pad; but this is not recommended because it is so slow.

This game also has new enemies like the Boiler, a skinny creature with a swollen head that blasts when it is near you. The game does have exploding enemies but these Boilers are more irksome because you spend a lot of bullets to defeat them; unless you shoot them on their heads, then you save a lot of ammunition. The bad news is this is near impossible with the auto-aim on, so you just have to do it manually. Enemies that blow up charges at you anytime out of nowhere, is another source of exasperation, especially if you are caught off-guard. Good thing there is a polished cover system that automatically glues you into place when you are in close proximity to a wall, a doorjamb or a box, which saves you the trouble of a blind fire or the complicated motions of holding a direction, leaning over and firing.

Resistance Retribution may not be a purely original game with all those gameplays but they are the best on PSP pure shooting games with their polished controls and consistent action. They have great graphic designs that could compete with other PSP games and even exceed in some areas. The game is very detailed when it comes to enemy graphics and location. If you’re looking for snags, it is most likely be about the quality of the audio.

Besides being able to enjoy a single-player campaign, one of the unique features of this new PSP version is the availability of a multiplayer mode. This is all possible through a local wireless connection or play online with PSP’s Infrastructure mode. Eight players can tough it out with each other in teams or in everyone versus everyone games or the most popular of all, the Assimilation type.

If you loved the Syphon Filter games, this is definitely much better. Although they have a lot more in common, the adjustments in the new Retribution has made the game a lot easier and faster to play.

LEGO Batman is the fifth go of Traveller's Tales at the LEGO theme but still only minimal change has happened during this time. However, even if that is the situation, gamers and fans of the dark-caped crusader, are sure to find the game amusing. The main reason here is that the gameplay used is a proven success. It is enjoyable and easy to understand. Yet all the problems in the past concerning the LEGO games, such as nonsense puzzles and the AI problem are still present. At this stage you would have expected Traveller's Tales to nearly perfect the game, but that is not so.

LEGO Batman is a unique game because it did not take its story from any of the Batman movies or from the comics. The plot within the game is kind of original; thus, it gives the creators a wide horizon, since there is no pressure to follow up with a well known story. The Batman here is not even connected with the Batman we know. It is exactly like a Batman in the toy shelf where you can create anything you desire with it.

The main idea of the plot is basically a story of Batman chasing and capturing villains that escaped from the Arkham Asylum. When you play LEGO Batman, the main goal is basically to destroy enemies and smash objects. The story isn't all that important.

The charm of LEGO is still present in the game and as a whole, it is still very funny. You have the same stoic Batman here, Robin is still same old goofy self, and the villains have remained amazingly crazy. The characters are really good LEGO counterparts of the cartoon Batman. However, aside from the characters, the background is not something to get crazy about. It would have been better to see a more creative Gotham City.

To the game's credit, LEGO Batman has everything in the mix. There are a multitude of characters spread out in six acts. In the first half you can use Batman and Robin. There are also power suits you can use. Robin can use the magnetic suit that allows him to walk through metal walls. And Batman has the demolition suit so he can turn stuff into smithereens in an instant (this fits Batman, he always wants everybody's attention, right?).

When you reach act three to six, you may start using the villains. In this plot, you can have a taste of how the sinister villains set up their master plan. This, however, is before the ultimate meeting between them and the bat. Each villain has their own unique powers. Poison Ivy uses her kiss to poison another. The joker gives joybuzzers to anyone he touches. Mr. Freeze places anyone in the cold storage. The Riddler controls the minds of other villains to make them his minions. You know the rest. But the main Batman Nemesis here is Killer Moth. Oh yes, the all popular Killer Moth that everybody remembers (That was an attempt at sarcasm, by the way. No one really knows who Killer Moth is or was.)

And on top of the story, there are dozens of unlockable characters that can be used when replaying levels. Among these characters are Night Wing, Batgirl, Hush, Man-Bat and others; which can be unlocked with each LEGO bit collected in the game (Cool, huh!)

There are many good things going for this game. The huge downside is that the problem from the previous LEGO games was never addressed. The AI presents problems; the jumps are difficult to time and stuff like that. But if you are looking for a good laugh with a buddy while appreciating the comical Batman and friends the game has created, then by all means, go ahead and purchase the game!

EA has taken over the Wii creation of the system and the golfing experience of the Game Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10. The feedback on the game is great and the experience of golfing is terrific. The way the gameplay is created has really answered the needs of gamers. The game just allows you to get immersed in it. It is the best entertainment in golf that money can buy. Moreover, PGA Tour 10 also features a wide selection of new courses with a realistic weather effect. The star of the game is the long awaited MotionPlus swing controls. This offers a very realistic recreation of real golfing. If you are still deciding whether or not to buy the MotionPlus, here’s a tip: YES! Buy one already. It is really THAT good.

The gameplay is really one fantastic feature. The menus in the game are slick. The style is very good and the pointer controls are well done. However, the game is still not a major revolution. The fundamentals of the previous edition are still intact; EA has just added and then subtracted some features to improve the game. And there are several game type modes, but the biggest part of the single player game is on the “My Career” mode. It is specially detailed that you are able to create a golf player basically from scratch. You may also customize as much as you want in the game. And when your player is ready you can take him to several tours like the PGA tour, the FedEx Cup, and Tournament Challenge. This type of career mode, I would definitely recommend to golf fans because the tournament is filled with seasoned PGA real life players as your competitors.

The game not only has the career mode, but it also features more than ten mini-games. These games range from cart competition to target practice and then to ring scores. Well, this mode actually featured in the previous edition; which up to four players - and the fun just keeps getting better.

Then there’s the online mode. The features in the last edition are still there, but some new fantastic live tournaments have been added. In this edition, you may join a tournament on a daily or weekly basis. You can even play with the pros in the ranked tournaments. And when you add this to the real-time weather feature of the game - the weather forecast - you’ll encounter unpredictable environments which just make the game a bit more challenging.

The Graphics of the game is superb when it comes to fluidity and the course looks realistic enough. However, the textures in the game can do with some improvements. The sound on the other hand is just average. The sound on the menus is decent but is not a stand out. And the sound effects in the gameplay are not that good either.

Despite the minimal drawbacks, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 for Wii can still be considered one of the best. It’s filled with content and the game is made excellent with the addition of the MotionPlus, along with the great Disc Golf expansion and the online mode that add some other dimension to the game. Don’t be surprised if this game hits the top of the charts.

If you are new to the "Bad Company" game series you might be pleasantly surprised with what this game packs. It has been noted that the single player gameplay has been greatly improved, aside from its' previous release. You are simply on a mission to keep a mythical weapon out of the hands of the Russians. You will travel all around the globe, from the crowded jungles to the ice and snow. You and your team of soldiers must work together in order to complete your missions. Your goal is simple and you are on a mission to save the world from complete mass destruction.

The missions are equipped with fully destructible environments. Which means if someone is blasting you with bullets from a tower or inside a building you can blow them to shreds by launching a grenade at them. Unlike typical games where you can shoot a wall for hours, and nothing ever happens to the wall; this is simply not the case with Bad Company 2.

However, you may have noticed in the first Bad Company that the humor was a little overdone, and the missions were a little too open, and it was a little hard to make your way around with the massive amount of fog plaguing your visibility. Bad Company 2 has corrected all those problems and it actually plays more like Call of Duty. Aside from the that, the backgrounds are truly amazing.

This game has been improved from its previous release. Your vehicles actually handle realistically (however you still don't see any hands on the steering wheel.) What really makes this game give that war feel is that you no longer get re-spawned health packs. You simply have to get to check points in order to heal yourself, which is much more realistic. This gives you a sense to obtain your goal, too.

One area that Bad Company 2 really soars at is its AI squad. Guess what they actually behave as real soldiers in battle. They will simply hold their own while you go out and flank the enemy line. This is really a strong point in Bad Company 2 and many have noticed that it is much more realistic, rather than having a squad of deadbeats that don't really help you out any.

If you are going to buy Bad Company 2 you will probably not buy it just for its single player game mode. In fact, you can easily beat it in a matter of weeks. True, there are a lot of weapons that will make it worth your while to go back a couple times, but the multi-player game play is truly amazing.

Your enemy could be posted up in a shack, tower, ect, but this doesn't mean they will stay there. A couple well placed explosives and you could find yourself doing battle in a completely new spot. This really adds a lot of tactical know-how and strategy to the equation. There is everything from a conquest, rush, attack, defend, and even death match. You can play as a light machine gunner, medic, or heavy weapon specialist. You do have to work well with others if you want to conquer the online multi-player mode.

However, if you are buying this game for just its' single player game play, you will be let down. Its best attribute is simply the multiplayer gameplay. There is a lot of action and heaps of explosions. Choosing your squad and type of play equals endless amounts of gameplay. This is a game for the strategical minded gamers.

The Sims is one of the most popular games of all time and has achieved so many awards over the past decade. Even non-traditional gamers find themselves wrapped up in this award winning game. In case you are new to the Sims you get to build a house and get to live your life however you see fit. There are all kinds of comical elements packed in the game. There are also important decisions that you need to make. So, Sims fans you will not be disappointed with the latest release of this game, The Sims 3.

The biggest change to The Sims 3 is you can now explore the neighborhood at anytime without having to wait for the world to load. In fact, a lot of people believed that the previous Sims games were too limited to just your house and your character. It truly does give you the feel that you are living your life in the computer realm world. However, I would also like to point out that you can just sit back and watch your characters, which will keep themselves amused and entertained on there own.

You really do get a real life experience with the Sims 3, or at least it feels like it. People still age and eventually die, but what really makes the Sims 3 great is that new characters will appear, so you get a real sense of change. The psychological system for the Sims 3 is really quite complex and different sims react different ways to other sims. Really, one of the coolest parts about this game is sitting back and watching how everyone interacts with each other.

What is really nice about this game is they have removed the fact that you don't have to watch them go to restroom multiple times per day. Instead they will only go once per day. This gives you a lot more time to interact with them. You can use your time to develop friendships, complete daily task, ect.

So with all the positive things about The Sims 3 there are a couple negative things that might be taken into consideration. For instance, when your sims rush off to work it would be nice if they just didn't disappear. It would be nice if you could complete some kind of task for their jobs to give this a real life experience. Another thing that people might not like is the fact that it takes a lot of trial and error to create an appealing house. But, then again that is part of the game.

There is an online feature that is quite nice in The Sims 3. You can interact with other Sims players. You can download and upload your own content, which really is a great addition to The Sims 3. For the hardcore Sims players you can even start a blog, edit movies, even record your games, and share them with other players. However, this is all extra features that you do not have to use to play the game, but it is a nice change of pace.

Overall, this is a great game and its performance is great. In previous versions of The Sims you might notice that it was laggish when you had a number of sims in a small area. It does function very smoothly even though you can roam the entire town. This is a massive improvement to an already great game. This is a highly addictive game that you can entertain yourself with for hours, and hours to come. One can only wonder what extras the expansion will be packed with!

Aliens vs. Predator has always been a fan favorite. The idea of it coming back is already enough to make headlines. The older ones who were really part of the whole AvP era couldn’t wait for its release. The younger generation is just as excited but not for the same reasons as the older ones. The mere thought of aliens, predators, and humans clashing is already adequate reason to make them sit at the edge of their seats.

The whole idea of a great game coming into existence is buried deep in the game. You can play three different campaigns each offering a different point of view. Players are given the opportunity to take the role of the aliens, the predators, or the marines. Put these three in one game and you expect to have a great game, right? Unfortunately, each game comes out mediocre and even if you put all of three together, it still doesn’t make up for all the good stuff that it lacks. What’s really sad is that you have high hopes for this game because the PC game was good and this version just disappoints you further in almost every aspect of the game.

To make it worse, the controls are hard to manage. You could have played each different campaign in different strategies but because of control constraints, you can’t really do much.

Although fans of the movie get to relive the thrill all throughout the game; it falls short of the expected way you want it to play out. The visuals are not as good as those in other consoles, for one. Luckily, what it lacks in great visuals, it makes up for in sound. The music is so spot-on that it’s like you are actually watching the movie all over again. The minutest sound is replicated to really sound like the real-thing counterpart. The beeping of the tracking device, for example, is probably the best reproduction to date. The voice acting is equally of high quality. You hear dialogues that are taken from the movie itself and acted out even better than the ones in the movie.

The whole feel of the game is a little old school though. From the character development, to the machines and onto the battle fights, we’ve seen them all before. The aliens and the predators don’t move and fight as good as the ones in the movie. Things even look a bit clumsy at some points. It’s a good thing the concept is great since it saves the game from downright disaster.

Sadly the game doesn’t live up well to the expectations, compared to the movie series; and even the previous game. It actually makes you rethink about playing this version and maybe just opt for the older one. The controls are at least easier and the game is a bit more polished in the earlier version. You have high hopes for this game and you don’t want to give up on it; but it just seems the creators are not trying hard enough.

Aliens vs. Predator has the making of a truly great game. All the possible ingredients are there; but the poor design and the general lack of quality within the game stops it from being a classic. Sure, it’s by no means the worst game; it’s not even a bad one in the strictest sense. But when you start comparing it with other first person shooter games on the market, the difference becomes blatantly obvious.

This is one of the best games made by the Ubisoft Montreal. Sam Fisher, the main character, is back with a vengeance. From the title itself, expect a lot of evil madness from Sam. And players can actually feel it in the game as well.

Take note: the single player campaign is splendid. The story of this game takes off from where Splinter Cell: Double Agent ended. No worries if you haven’t finished or even played the previous game because the mechanics of the game are really easy to understand. The story revolves around the murder of Sam’s daughter and his thirst for revenge. In an astonishing turn of events and a bizarre coincidence the people guilty of murdering his daughter are also planning a terrorist attack on Washington D.C. Sam is on his way to bring hell to these people.

So let’s move on to how Ubisoft Montreal has made this game interesting. Before I do that, however, I should warn you upfront, the PC version of this game is not as good as the Xbox 360 version.

Ubisoft Montreal did something to make this game too interesting and exciting that I can even spend the rest of the day playing the game. One factor that adds up to the game’s excitement is the stealth and speed. Sam moves so stealthily swift he is tagged as the “panther”. In Conviction, Sam is always on the hunt, not running away from his enemies, unlike in the past Splinter Cell games. He seems to be always on the kill mode acting like the ultimate predator without fear of his approaching enemies that can go to any number - up to a dozen at one point.

If you’re in the shadow, the lighting turns to black and white, and if you’re outside, the colors come back. This feature adds up to easy maneuver in the course of the attack. In addition, the cover system makes it easy for Sam to stoop to prevent his enemies from seeing him. So far, this is one of the best cover systems I had used. Unfortunately, if you are marked by the enemy — the best recourse is to retreat. Enemies might be fooled for a while, attacking on the mark that you had left, but not for long. You better do something (like offensive attack) to gain advantage before they get to you first.

There are a number of ways you can attack the enemies. You can use stealth to attack quietly (hand techniques) and avoid getting the attention of the other enemies, or by using your weapons; your preference. A new feature, the mark and execute system, lets you mark a specific enemy. This guarantees a kill. The drawback to this: it’s too unrealistic. Once you mark the enemy and press execute you can hit the enemy even if it manages to hide behind a wall. It’s much too easy and quite impossible in real life. Also, this “bonus skill” should not be used all the time. Once used, you must earn it back by having another takedown. It should be used wisely.

On the whole, the new gameplay techniques can easily be practiced. After completing the single-player campaign, which is easy to thump despite its relative difficulty, there is also a co-op campaign. There’s a major setback here that you should be aware of, which concerns your Internet connection. If your connection is slow, or gets interrupted for even a single second, you get bounced off the game. That also applies to your co-op partner. It doesn’t matter if only one of you have internet problems, both of you get eliminated from the game.

Which creates a problem worth taking note of and that is the inability to check the Internet connection of the other players. This can be very frustrating as you can never to determine when the problems might occur, maybe in the middle of the exciting game? That’s real tough! This flaw is a disappointment because co-op is definitely better than single-player. In the co-op mode, you and your partner play Agent Archer and Agent Ketrel. The mission: find some missing WMD’s. The challenge: not one of you should be killed because if one partner dies, you both lose in the game. This campaign lets you work in tandem, so you have to do everything in your power to cover each other’s back. You can attack the same enemy together to make sure that enemy doesn’t have a fighting chance of surviving.

To wrap it up, the game is quite remarkable, giving you the sense of becoming the ultimate killer of evil people. However, the one big disappointment is the poor online interface in the co-op campaign, which results to delays or pauses. Consequently, I would suggest that this game be played on Xbox live, rather than on PC. The latter is great if you are playing the single-player campaign; then you’re in for an action-packed game.

Getting in shape is quite a big task nowadays. But the bigger concern is how to get motivated to get in shape. I bet you have been to the gym and spent so much money investing on memberships and the like yet still you have not gained much in terms of your goal to stay fit. This is an opportunity for you to grab the EA Sports Wii and avail of the Personal Trainer game. This may sound a little exaggerated as normal athletes will not normally engage in this stuff but for an average guy like you, it can have a big impact on your plan get in shape; here’s a real good motivation if you need one. This is the time to get you going with your stay-in-shape campaign with the help of the Wii Personal Trainer that has so much to offer.

The counterpart of Personal Trainer, the Wii Fit, has been a disappointment. You’ve probably tried it too and I bet you did not enjoy it (and you haven’t really lost weight with that program either). Yes, you would have been better off if you just joined yoga sessions. But now the long wait is finally over for you; you now have the option to try the Personal Trainer. This game lets you set your own personal goals which are recorded. You can get to work out in a particular time, burn calories in a set and work out a number of times in the same set. This game can give you a sense of purpose, and there really isn’t that many games like this one.

The Personal Trainer offers players to try the 30 day challenge. You can choose the program that suits you; there’s a variety of workouts offered by the Personal Trainer so that overworking can be prevented. The Personal Trainer likewise offers a combination of cardio and strength exercises; although the focal point is aerobic exercises. The activity focuses on the speed and flexibility of the player.

With the various exercises that the game offers, the player can instantly combine kicks and running in a single set. The good thing about this virtual fitness activity is that you actually do the exercises in real. You get to work every muscle, depending on the chosen program. You can select from exercise sets such as squatting, bicep curls, skating, throwing baseball, playing tennis, playing basketball and hitting the heavy bag in boxing. These compound exercises make the workout feel refreshing and more interesting; thus, prevent you from getting bored.

After taking the 30 day-challenge you can see a remarkable improvement, as long as you follow your chosen workout religiously. It is a game that provides a fabulous array of different workouts to choose from, all in one Personal Trainer.

With the increasing awareness of the importance to stay in good shape and keep fit, the competition for this kind of game has gotten stiffer. The Personal Trainer has already raised the bar and this is definitely going to be the best videogame workout ever created on the planet. So you better grab your own Personal Trainer now.
