Active Life: Extreme Challenge stands out with activities that you normally don't get to try and comes with a controller mat that works with the games.

Active Life: Extreme Challenge is a sequel to Active Life: Outdoor Challenge and, just like the older game, Extreme Challenge includes the Active Life mat, an eight button peripheral controller that is used for all the games. Also, Extreme Challenge brings in more unique games and activities that you probably won't find in any other game, giving you a chance to try brand new things.


You Up For the Challenge?

There are fifteen activities in all, including BASE jumping, street luge, rock climbing, skateboarding, inline skating, kite surfing, BMX biking, wakeboarding, and, strangely enough, double dutch, which is the least extreme sport of the group.


Every game uses the special mat peripheral in different ways. For example, for inline skating, you would run on the spot to speed up and jump to avoid obstacles. For rock climbing, you sit on the mat and hit the buttons in order to grab and climb. There is also a challenge mode in the game to keep things interesting as you aim for different goals while doing the activities, such as purposefully hitting all the obstacles or waiting as long as possible before opening your parachute.


All the games can be played as soon as you turn on your Wii. However, harder difficulty settings will need to be unlocked. Harder levels feature longer courses and more obstacles. You can also unlock the ability to use your Miis in the game as well!


A Worthy Challenge?

The game features cel-shaded characters with beautiful background scenery. The controls are simple and relatively easy to learn, making the game fun for the whole family. Unfortunately, multi player is only available for two players. You are not going to collapse from exhaustion with these mini games, but you will work up a sweat doing all those jumps, making the game more enjoyable than normal exercise.

    Hello, this is a forum, about MY favorite video games. And  Maybe you play them as well as me. Here, you can talk about your builds on Minecraft, maybe you have your own map, also you could talk about your best survival world,or more. And on FNAF you could talk about how you got past Night 1, Night 2, Night 3, Night 4, Night 5, Night 6, or the custom night. Maybe you could ask for some tips as well. And, just saying, on steam, FNAF 4 IS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!
