There's very little to recommend in KIDFIT ISLAND RESORT. In what is billed as a fitness game, you'll have activities like coconut catching, which only requires you to tilt your remote back and forth, and surfing, which you perform by pointing your remote at a circle on the screen. Most of the actual physical activity here comes in the form of shaking the remote. One activity, sandcastle building, is performed by wiggling the Wii remote in random directions. Some mini-games, which try to offer real activity, are still ill-planned -- like the "Treasure Race" which tells kids to put the Wii remote in one pants pocket and the nunchuck controller in the other pocket, and then run in place. Kids would have to have huge pockets for that to work, never mind the problem of the cord connecting those two controllers. Sadly, the game even has unattractive visuals. You can customize your character, but only have two faces to choose from. KidFit Island Resort simply doesn't deliver.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
