Games Review: NewU: Fitness First Personal Trainer

Wii, £29.99

This game works on the assumption that you’re earnest enough not to just sit down and wave the remote in the right direction. And it won’t know if you ever ate the egg and tomato salad it suggested for lunch. But you can say you’ve done all of this and the Fitness First personal trainer of your choice (try Julie, an encouraging brunette) will give you a feel-good thumbs up. It’s ideal for salving anxieties about not doing enough exercise, while still not doing enough exercise.
