EA Sports Active 2


$100.00 Released November, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Heart rate monitor is a highly logical addition - enables mid-game pulse checking and provides BMI information. Custom Workout mode is very user-friendly - more than 100 exercise types available. Updated leg strap is very reliable - gel-lined elastic fabric performs much better than the Active 1 equivalent.

The Cons:Wii edition is the only version not to feature hands-free controlling - may cause frustration in certain activities. Wii Balance Board integration is seemingly prone to error - calibration errors are very common. Additional motion sensors are not yet available - multiplayer support is limited to players who own a full version of the game.

EA Sports Active 2 is a Kinect-based fitness game for Xbox 360 released in November 2010. Compared to EA Sports and Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout, Active 2 is more fitness oriented. It includes a heart-rate monitor for getting a more optimized workout, over 70+ workouts that can be mixed and matched for customizable workouts, and a full-fledged 9-week program that has been put together by certified trainers.

Like Ultimate, Active 2 offers online access… but not for the purpose of competition. It’s more-so to track progress and trade advice with others.
