EA Sports Active (Wii)

19 February 2010
  • Excerpt: EA Sports Active (Wii) Published by: Electronic Arts ESRB Rating: E Release Date: May 2009 Multiplayer support for side by side workouts and races Strengths: You\'re gonna sweat! Great fun and focused exercise game. Weak Points: Great upper and lower body exercises but it needs more core body exercises. Moral Warnings: nothing to report here.

Test EA Sports Active

Generation NT
2 February 2010
  • Conclusion: EA Sports Active ne s'adresse pas à tous les sportifs à domicile. Si l'intensité de Wii Fit vous donne déjà du mal, alors le titre d'Electronic Arts n'est pas à votre niveau. Si en revanche, le jeu de Nintendo vous laisse un peu sur votre faim, celui-ci vous permettra de relever de nouveaux défis. Il dégage de ce jeu un vrai dynamisme, très communicatif. Les exercices s'enchaînent au cours de la séance vous laissant  peu respirer.
  • Pros: Une ambiance dynamique, Le choix de la musique, Des exercices inédits, Des séances complètes pré-établies, La personnalisation des séances
  • Cons: Pas accessible à tous, Demande un certain dynamisme

Virtual personal trainers help families get fit on the Wii.

Common Sense Media
29 January 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a workout program for the Wii rather than a game. While there are sports minigames incorporated into some of the fitness programs, the focus of this product is working out. While more serious than Wii Fit (which introduced the Wii Balance Board), EA Sports Active incorporates the use of the Wii Balance Board in some of its exercises. With a two-player, split screen option, this is a good program for a parent and child to use together.

Review: EA Active (Nintendo Wii)

Diehard GameFAN
8 January 2010
  • Summary: EA Active is a better game than Wii Fit , but it’s still a piece of flim-flam chicanery that really doesn’t do what it promises. The enclosed resistance band is a flimsy piece of crap and for a third or the price of the replacement pack, you can buy a real first rate resistance band, but EA’s greed is counting on the average gamer being unaware of these things so you can keep buying overpriced ineffectual equipment.

  • Excerpt: Though a year or two late to the Wii fitness party, EA enters the fray with both thighs blazing in EA Sports Active. Truth be told, stacked up against Wii Fit, Active stacks higher.

EA Sports Active

Operation Sports
17 June 2009
  • Excerpt: There was a time when working out meant going to a gym, or at the very least, venturing outside. To be honest, I wasn’t very good at doing either consistently. Thankfully, fitness games have made "in-home" training possible.
  • Pros: A more serious approach to fitness., Fun and effective activities., Very appealing complete package.
  • Cons: Occasional issues with controllers., Lack of exciting music., Cheap resistance band.
