Summary: I bought this game for my wife, she played a lot of Wii Fit and had gotten tired of it and wanted something new to play which focused more on cardio. After researching I decided to go with EA Sports Active 2 despite the negative reviews since the price has gotten so cheap that I figured it was worth taking a chance on. It's been a little over a month and she's half way through her first 9 week program and hasn't missed a workout yet.
Great workout, lousy design. (The good, the bad, and the ugly.)

Summary: I purchased Wii Active 2 after completing the Wii Active, and then the Wii Active: More Workouts fitness programs. I'm on the last 3 weeks of the 9-week program, and of the three Wii Active games, I have to say this is my LEAST favorite. Let's start with the GOOD: - The sensors are less cumbersome and more comfortable than the nunchuck strap on the other two games. I also like the heart rate monitor feature.
Summary: EA Sports Active 2 for Wii Bought the game about 1 month ago - currently doing the 9 week program on Medium. This is my first Wii work out program. Pros 1. Difficulty - This is definitely a WORK OUT - I am sweating every time. I did two work-outs in a row last night and was drenched while working out in my freezing basement.
Summary: I just purchased this product and have used it three times. The first day of use, about 30 minutes, the Heart Rate Monitor worked fine. The second day of use, about 15 minutes in the routine, it stopped working. The batteries have been changed, I have unplugged the usb and plugged it back in. The heart rate monitor is paired, but the heart rate , BPM, does not worked. This has to be the biggest complaint I have read and now have experienced.
Summary: I've been playing this game for several weeks. I haven't went through all mini games yet, but I think I've played enough to write about my experience. Here are the pros: * First of all, this is a work out game. You can indeed real work out with this game (get sweat and muscles stretched), and it's fun. * Personal training programs looks very good, which covers exercises for all the body. * The heard rate sensor works well.
Good concept - pity it's support has been discontinued

Summary: If you have the self discipline of following an exercise routine, this game provides a personal trainer to coach you through a diverse range of routines and discover muscle groups that you may be unaware even existed. I have now been using this game for a number of weeks and have certainly enjoyed it. The biggest regret is that the heart rate monitor that is supplied does not work properly.
Summary: This gave a good work out but I wish that you were able to choose your activities as well as doing set workouts. some exercises were a bit repetitive. the resistance band was not very good once I had tied it to the handles it was way too short for me.
Summary: I really wanted to like this having grown bored with the previous version but like other reviewers, the poor sensitivity of the leg sensor and excruciatingly long load times finally wore me down and I went back to More Workouts.
Summary: Purchased this game - already have the other two - havent got fully into it yet - but cant see the purpose of the heart monitor - serves no purpose - have only done the Aerobics steps so far and was all over the place - alot more energetic than the previous Aerobic sessions, more steps added and the boxing is good too - which I enjoy after a bad day at work - guess I have no qualms at this time.
