Wii FIt Plus Training Plus Playthrough Part 1: Perfect 10

Finally, we have moved on to the last segment of our Wii Fit Plus Playthrough, Training Plus.  I saved this one for last as it is what really sets Wii Fit Plus apart from Wii Fit.  It features 15 awesome activities/exercises and is undoubtedly where a lot of Wii Fit Alumni spend the majority of their time.

We get things started with a totally unique challenge, Perfect 10:

Perfect 10

Okay, so I admit it...I honestly enjoy this one.  I like how the developers incorporated THOUGHT and action into this one.  They could have just had it be a balance game, but the extra challenge of having to think and sum a series of numbes to a pre-determined total adds another nice element.

The concept is very have to shift your weight to light up a series of balls that adds up to "10."  Often times there are more than one right answer, for example you might have 6, 4, 8, and 2 where 6+4 and 8+2 both equal 10.  Other times it might be 6, 2, 2, and 8 where 6+2+2=10 and 8+2=10.  This makes it even more of a challenge and you can easily get to a point where you over think things. 
Oh and then there are negative numbers!

That's right, now you've got to sum it up with negatives in the mix.  Sometimes it'll be 12 and -2, while other times you'll have 8, 4, -2, and 2.  You can go 8+2=10, or 8+4+-2=10.  It seems simple enough and it is easy to watch a video and say, "Gee, I could go faster," but once you are the one on the balance board things change!  I tend to do great and then check the time to see how I am doing and loose a little.

I was able to 4-Star all three levels:

Beginner: Add to 10: <40 seconds, Personal Best 30.93 seconds
Intermediate: Add to 15: <45 seconds, Personal Best 42.88 seconds
Advanced: Add to 20: <60 seconds, Personal Best 57.08 seconds

I don't know what it is, but I had a really hard time getting the 4-Star rank on the "Add to 15" Intermediate level.  I can nail down 10 and 20s, but the adding to 15 proves quite a bit more difficult.  I am not sure if it is because it is a non-zero number or what, but it just seems to be more challenging.  And of course, with not having the time constraints of the trip etc, I had to make it happen....So a few attempts later, I clicked off the 4-Star Rank in Intermediate.

This may just be a personal issue, or it may vary for different people, but I really had a hard time getting the weight to shift to the back and hit the rearward seems like I usually hit left or right before getting the back position, but oh well.  This is just a minor issue and you can still adjust accordingly to make a good score.

This one won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I really enjoy the mind AND body challenge that comes with Perfect 10.
