Nintendo’s Wii Fit, the video game that’s supposed to, um, make you fit, came out this week accompanied by much fanfare. But not so much love from the critics.
Metacritic, a site that aggregates and averages reviews from different publication, says the game has scored an 80 (for the record, we’ve been sceptical about the game’s chances as well).
That’s a fair grade, but it’s a far cry from Grand Theft Auto IV’s (TTWO) record-setting 98. You’d think Nintendo, which is spending a ton on marketing, was hoping for something better.
Or maybe they don’t really care that much — because much of the broad audience the Wii and Wii Fit don’t read game reviews to begin with.
