Ring Fit Adventure
Top Critic Average
An exercise game with legs - providing you can get over your own sore legs.
Ring Fit Adventure offers an inventive fitness RPG that doesn't quite have all the moves.
Nintendo has made fitness fun again with Ring Fit Adventure, with a package that's as easy to use as it is a great workout.
A vastly more interesting experience than Wii Fit that's good enough to get RPG fans interested in fitness and fitness fans interested in role-playing games.
Nintendo Switch's premier fitness game released one year ago today, and it sets a new standard for what a workout game should be.
For fit-curious Switch owners, or those of us who might skip the gym a little too often, it’s a wonderful way to feel a bit better about your health, even for just 15 minutes at a time.
Ring Fit Adventure is no replacement for just going to the gym or taking up swimming or otherwise thoroughly committing to exercise. It is, at least, simple to set up, entertaining to play and therefore easy to keep using. It’s Nintendo being weird, which, for some of us, is a draw unto itself.
Two weeks of a workout regiment is not nearly long enough to give a full assessment of how effective it is, but it is enough time to see that Ring Fit Adventure is one well-crafted exercise game. Will it be good enough to help me overcome this lifelong struggle? Ask me again in a month and then five months after that.
Ring Fit Adventure is an excellent cross between fitness and action/adventure. Nintendo manages to create their best exercise game yet while weaving in classic adventure tropes to gamify the experience.
This has quietly arrived as one of the most original games of the year – and better yet, is one of my favorites.
