Wii Fit Plus Balance Games Playthrough Part 8: Snowboard Slalom

Part 8 of our Wii Fit Plus Balance Games Playthrough sees us hop from the iceberg over the slopes for the Snowboard Slalom:

Wii Fit Plus Balance Games Playthrough Part 8: Snowboard Slalom

Snowboard Slalom

This one is no doubt a big hit with many Wii Fit veterans.  I personally prefer some of the other activities, but this is still a ton of fun.  The objective here is simple...clear the checkpoints and do so in the quickest time possible. 

I have to say, the controls here are not as precise as the Ski Slalom that we played earlier.  It is significantly more difficult and I had trouble with the board registering what my weight shifting should have produced...or in laymen's actions were not reflected as best they could be on the screen.  Thus, it becomes quite problematic to land a good score when you are leaning back and trying to steer right and the game still has you rocketing forward and to the left.

We improved quickly on the Beginner runs and netted a new Personal Best and 4-Star Rank of 26 seconds!

Advanced is a bit more difficult, longer course with tighter gates, and we managed to make a 3 Star pass with a best time of  52.95 seconds.  We seemed to miss the same 2-3 gates in each of the penalized runs.  Oh and don't miss gates, one miss is 7 do the math.  I will have to come back and try to 4-Star this one later on, but it will not be a priority any time soon...too many other great games, lol.

Nonetheless, despite the somewhat questionable controls this is a lot of fun and a nice change of pace.
