EA Sports Active 2 Review (360)

Despite what you might think about most EA games, itís typically hard to argue about the level of "slickness" in its titles. From flashy but clean menus and licensed music to loaded feature sets, EA's games tend to look good in and out of the box. Whatís behind the sparkle can be debated, but whatís on the surface more often than not looks good.

This time, however, weíre not looking at an annual team sport, but an interactive exercise game, EA Sports Active 2. Regardless, I would apply the same argument to this game. Most people will like the look of the game, as well as the feature set and user friendliness. Some people, though, will question the activities therein, which most likely shade your overall opinion of the title.

I have the PS3 version, so I didn't have the Kinect problems you did, but otherwise your review mirrors my own experience. I would have given it a higher score, thought. I haven't used the built in programs yet (just been doing custom or trainer-generated individual workouts), and I've been pretty happy with the customization.

The one thing I will definitely agree with is the lack of built-in warm up. Two warm-up exercises (especially the ones Active chooses for you) are certainly not enough. Definitely need to stretch or warm-up on your own before starting one of the generated workouts.
