EA Sports Active 2 Review | For Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360
The ultimate interactive fitness program just got better. Released in North America on November 16, EA Sports Active 2 adds impressive new features that distinctly set it apart from its predecessor. While the original release was only available for the Nintendo Wii, EA Sports Active 2 expands its reach to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The program puts a holistic focus on fitness, combining nutrition and lifestyle factors with a variety of hands-free workout routines and activities, all from the convenience of your home gaming console.
The all new Total Body Tracking is a unique wireless control system powered by motion sensors in leg and arm straps that accommodate complete freedom of motion. A heart rate monitor provides constant on-screen monitoring, allowing users to capture workout intensity and optimize performance over time. The wireless controller eliminates the need for the Wii Nunchuk altogether.
Users can track their workout data online via automatic uploads from their connected console to their personalized EA Sports Active profile. Connect and share information with others, join workout groups, download new routines and join the new EA Sports Active 2 nine week program. This program has been designed by certified personal trainers with a focus on total body conditioning, reaching goals and staying motivated along the way.
The game truly shines when used with Xbox 360’s Kinect, Microsoft’s controller-free answer to the Nintendo Wii, tracking your entire body’s motion one-to-one and displaying real-time movement on-screen. Coupled with Kinect, EA Sports Active 2 makes fitness fun while ensuring proper form with comprehensive exercise routines.
Other key features include a Virtual Personal Trainer to guide you towards reaching your fitness goals, and a 30 Day Challenge with customized workouts to match your fitness level.
Among the few negatives with this release are controller disconnects when used with the Wii and occasional EA Sports online server disruptions.
Overall, EA Sports Active 2 with Total Body Tracking is a worthy sequel to the best-selling original and makes working out convenient, effective and entertaining.
