Summary: This game has terrible controls. It doesn't register the fact that the exercises are being done, and it won't move foreward unless the exercises are done 'correctly'. The only way to move on is to skip the exercises, but then it isn't much of a workout. You have to hold the remote in a specific way, but even if you do it the same way as on the tutorial, it still won't move on.
Summary: I just got the DVD today and I'm really disappointed. I thought I was buying additional workouts so that I could use these new worksouts AND the old workouts. Not so. It is true the exercises are new but there are only 35 of them to spread out over cardio and upper and lower parts of the body. This really can get boring. I was really looking for some additional variety by adding these to the original workout. Ahh well.
Excerpt: EA sports active is a game aimed at helping you loose weight and tone up through following the interactive exercises on the game. Don't worry if you did not own the previous one you do do not need it to be able to enjoy this one and in my opinion this one is much better then the original with more to do.
Pros: Easy to use works if you stick at it
Cons: Sometimes does not respond to movements can be frustrating
