EA NO LONGER SUPPORTS THIS GAME!

C. B. Edison, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: I used this when I started working out about 2 years ago. I'd give it 3 stars back then. For a beginner it gets you moving and active, but isn't a trainer - you can have completely horrible form and be doing the exercises entirely wrong without it noticing, ect.

Not as good as I'd hoped...

Lturner, Amazon
10 August 2011
  • Summary: After using Active, I was excited about using Active 2. While the graphics are better and I like the warm-ups and cool-downs that Active didn't have, there were other disappointments that were hard to ignore. It is not nearly as responsive as Active.

  • Summary: Save your money and don't buy this. I got for 40 bucks and it was still a waste. It's alright when the sensors work properly but they're constantly not recognizing movements which can be very frustrating.

Communication problems

OB Quiet, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • Summary: I started out liking this program. The variety was good, the graphics fair. Enough bells and whistles to hold my attention. But then the quirks started coming out. 1. Heart rate monitor seems to lose track during all running activities and reports rather low rates. 2.

Loved it - but arm monitor died after three uses

Stuff My Cat Wants NOW!!!, Amazon
31 December 2010
  • Summary: I really loved this program. Unlike Wii Fit, the program actually creates a program for you based on your needs. More than once, I found myself sweating and out of breath - something that rarely happened after almost 2 years of continual Wii Fit (and Fit +) use.

Was fun until the Heart Monitor stopped working after 6 times

Genevieve Lee "glee-ful", Amazon
24 December 2010
  • Summary: The exercises are good enough to get someone back into reasonable shape. And it was sort of fun even if it didn't recognize some movements part of the time and the remote would need resynching..... But the Heart Rate Monitor is the HEART of the program.

I wasted my cash

  • Summary: I've barely used it, my gym instructor would go nuts if she saw some of the techniques it teaches & the sensors weren't all that comfy.

Buy the first one instead!!

Amanda B, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I think maybe if you have never had the first one, you might like this but I hate it!! Problem 1: It's really footery to set it up - heart rate monitor USB fob, arm band, leg band, Wii controller, balance board, resistance bands..

Good idea, but gets annoying and disheartening

Poppy, amazon.co.uk
12 September 2011
  • Summary: I was really looking forward to playing this game, as I had got fed up of using the Wii fit and felt I needed a bit more of a challenge. I am currently on a weight loss program, so need to do some regular exercise but had grown bored of what I was already doing.

Would be fanatastic if it worked -it feels like a buggy beta product

Jason Mark Ward "JsnWrd", amazon.co.uk
25 August 2011
  • Summary: I agree with everything Krissli said, I really wanted to love this but it is just too frustrating because so much of it just doesn't work. I really enjoy the Wii Fit Plus but it's just not strenuous enough and EA Sports Active 2 is!
