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.
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.
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.
Summary: If you're shopping for a good workout video game, I don't recommend this one. The original Sports Active from EA was much better, including real person video clip demos of how to properly do the exercises.
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

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.
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..
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.
