EA Sports Active Review

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.

To varying degrees of success, a number of games have made getting in shape comparable to playing games and earning achievements. In some cases, like Wii Fit, fitness is about having fun in a relaxed workout environment. But EA Sports Active, EA’s first foray into the fitness game market, is about a more intense workout experience.

Instead of mini-games that promote fitness, Active is more of a virtual trainer. It replaces mini-games and yoga with actual workout activities. Some come close to what we’ve seen before (inline skating, aerobic boxing), but many are mundane by comparison: biceps curls, lunges and even jogging.

Thanks for the review Caley. I hope to find this game one day at a reduced price. It definitely seems to be an upgrade to Wii Fit since it has an actual workout program in it for you.

i'm glad this actually makes you work hard, wii fit is a scam to make old people think they are working out when playing mini games

This is a good trend for gaming.
Exercise and fun at the same time.
I wish this had been around from day one of gaming.
