    Love the new workouts, however; 2 complaints. Leg strap doesn't seem to register movement in squats and lunges and you lose connection with Wii Remote and Wii balance board several times during a workout. Sometimes in the middle of an exercise! Any suggestions fellow gamers?

    Although not yet launched I see EA Sports are using the same rubbish tension band that they used in the original EA Active game.

I bought one on Ebay for £4 and have used it daily for over a year and its still intact. The original Nunchuck holder has also fallen apart and you can only get them from guess who? I hope the new games are more responsive than the original. Collapse

    Fun, but if you're not obsessed with your heart rate, the original's similar - and cheaper. [Jan 2011, p.78]

    Despite many new entries into the fitness genre, EA Active remains above its competition. EA Active 2 brings a host of new exercises to the mix, great new motion accessories that are more accurate, a very welcome heart rate monitor and robust online integration. The only drawback I find is that versions on other consoles take better advantage of newer motion technologies.

    Get active with EA Sports Active 2! Hard workout with some control hick-ups, yet among the Wii fitness games it gets your power and stamina up the fastest. And it's still cheaper than going to the gym.
