Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm and Exercise Review (Switch)

original Fitness boxing Launched a few years ago, it certainly served its purpose, but as intended, two years is a long time for everyone to play one game every day.

With that in mind, Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm and Exercise We are with us now, but there have been many changes in the two years. After all, we are now Ring Fit Adventure This is a problem and nothing else really approaches it on the switch. Did this sequel provide enough new features to justify the second round, or should it have left the fans by throwing towels to keep playing the original?A great and annoying answer is a lie somewhere In the middle.

The general idea of ​​Fitness Boxing 2 is the same as for the first time. In the main menu, you can choose daily workouts or free training. In the latter, you can choose the workout to perform, the intensity level, the music to accompany, the music playback speed, and the background. I want you to exercise.

Then start the exercise itself. Now you need to punch a series of icons to the beat. These icons represent a variety of actions, which are fairly simple in the early stages, such as jabs, straights, hooks, and uppercuts, but eventually ducking, weaving, blocking, stepping, and more. After your training is complete, you will be scored on how accurate your punch was – and that’s more or less it.

How Fitness Boxing 2 detects punches, as in the first game Maybe … Better yet, this type of motion control has never been perfectly accurate. Jabs and straights are fine in most cases, but once you start introducing hooks and uppercuts into your mix, things can start to get a little messy until you reverse engineer and understand Joy-Con in your head. .. exactly The gesture the switch is looking for.

It is not possible to confirm that the uppercut was done properly. Because there is no way to tell it. It simply checks its accelerometer to check for fast-moving bursts. In other words, performing a motion is not enough, and you need to “punch” and register properly at the end.It’s probably small A little more forgiving than the first game was registering some of these punches (especially the hooks we often had problems with), given that these calculations are done in secret. If you’re used to playing the first game, it’s hard to tell if it actually improved motion detection.

Sometimes there are also some performance issues. If your game consists primarily of tracking a series of large squares that slide on the screen, it’s much more noticeable if those squares aren’t completely in motion. And they do work from time to time.I don’t know if that’s our imagination, but in some songs it felt like we did completely Everything seemed a bit off while I was getting the perfect punch timing.

As before, a fitness instructor would accompany you and you could choose from six in the first game, but now three more newcomers can try and warm up. Karen (whose name is quite unfortunate in 2020) is a friendly and quiet type, a harmless option enough to be a trainer. Janice is the exact opposite, often horribly enthusiastic, but Hiro seems to have been rejected by the Korean boy band and has a typical “cool” outfit set that you can choose from.

If you’re a Fitness Boxing veteran and worried about this new blood coming in, don’t worry. All six instructors of the first game are still here, so you can continue to marvel at Bernardo’s comical big arms. Or, try to understand why Sophie, who sounds incredibly gorgeous, teaches her how to put it in the box. clearly She sounds like her servant can afford to burn calories on her behalf. Whoever you choose in the first game, they are all stuck for Round 2.

As before, each instructor has his own outfit that can be unlocked during the game. However, the unlocking process has become much easier and has significantly reduced time.In the first game, the instructor’s costume was unlocked when a certain milestone was reached, but some of these were frankly ridiculous: to unlock the new top felt. Throw a total of 198,000 punches Just a little Disproportionation.

The game has many achievements, such as performing specific routines, achieving more manageable milestones, customizing instructors, and simply choosing for the first time. Every time you perform any of these achievements, you will receive an orange ticket. These can then be replaced with new clothing. More new clothes are still unlocked, but at least you can get the help of generous enough tickets at the start of the game and you really have to work hard to run them out.

a little The choice of music available to you is not very generous. The first Fitness Boxing had 20 songs and the general theme was pop. There were Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5 and more. There are 20 more songs (and 3 original songs that are often forgotten) this time, which seems to be a wide range of decades. There are still relatively modern tracks (such as Katy Perry’s Hot N Cold and Marshmellow’s Alone), but they also contain a significant proportion of older tracks.

Do you say that Cyndi Lauper’s little girl just wants to have fun? Why, yes, it’s there. Boogie Wonderland by Earth, Wind & Fire? Uh … why? Sandstorm by Darude? Well, someone just added it obviously for the meme. With only 20 songs to choose from, there’s not much room to change the track list a bit, and weird tracks that seem to be trying to get out of the “cheap pop” category feel like them. It stands out awkwardly.Difficult to think Anyone You will be a big fan of what makes you beautiful with One Direction And Let’s go not only with Venus of Bananarama but also with Wild of Steppenwolf! And It’s My Life by Bon Jovi.

Best of all, the song is an unlicensed, MIDI-quality cover instrument that has been embedded in websites since the 90’s and doesn’t sound out of place. Choose Village People’s YMCA and close your eyes. If you are old enough, you can: Almost Imagine signing a guestbook, watching an animated GIF with a “under construction” sign and flames, and clicking on the next site for that particular Geocities webring.

With that in mind, I don’t know why I decided to draw a line below it at 20:00 when theoretically it could be full load. One of the potential glorious lights is the eShop option in the main menu. This will take you to the eShop now and you will see an error message that there is nothing there. This suggests that DLC is coming, so if you’re lucky you mean more songs, and if you’re lucky, it’s a bit of a joke to charge the actual money for music that sounds like 14. It’s free because it’s-older learned it at their Yamaha.

If possible, make one suggestion. Such an effort is clearly too late for Fitness Boxing 2, but it may be the idea for a third game. Don’t forget your friends, the JoySound library. The JoySound Karaoke app is one of the few successes of Wii U in Japan and is currently on Switch with over 180,000 songs along with tempo control. If there’s a way to integrate it with Fitness Boxing and charge a membership fee to give players access to a much larger library, it feels fresh every day instead of just hearing everything in just three weeks. You can. ..

That is ultimately the main issue here. Fitness Boxing isn’t that bad. The control works fine. Aside from performance issues, as long as you spare no effort (and you can get half-decent training unless you’re tempted). Just sit on the couch and flick Joy-Con. The problem is that there aren’t enough types here. There are a series of different workouts for unlocking, but they are all of the same type. This in itself is not a major flaw. It’s called FitnessBoxing, so it’s frustrating if you start throwing ballet movements there, but if you have a lot of music that makes you feel different every day, this repetition will feel much less monotonous.
