Either way, this game is a serious workout tool. Perhaps not as effective as a real trainer at a real gym, but more "down to business" than Wii Sports or Wii Fit. My results were pleasing, but I must admit that I missed a day or two during the whole process.
So for now, while there's plenty of scope for performance enhancements, Active's the best there is. I'm still running. But, unlike the weeks after Wii Fit arrived, I'm also still playing.
Then again, maybe not. The arrival of EA Sports Active More Workouts barely six months after its predecessor hasn't caused fans of the original to start a boycott, after all - which if anything proves fitness games just don't have the same hold over players as zombie shooters. Niggles aside, it's a huge improvement on EA Sports Active. While EA hasn't tinkered too much with the foundations of the franchise, the tweaks, tucks and additional content make EA Sports Active More Workouts feel like a far more effective fitness package than its predecessor. For players who want to work up a sweat in front of their consoles it's one of the best titles available.
Although it remains debatable how effective EA Sports Active--or any other video game-based workout program--will be at getting the masses into serious shape, the game's combination of exercises and motivational programs is undeniably catchy. It will get your heart pumping, help you lose a few pounds, and is certainly a lot more healthy than indulging in the usual, more sedentary video game alternatives.
At times the game doesn’t recognize your movements, which is frustrating. And the wires connecting the Wii remote and Nunchuk can get in the way of your shoulder presses. Fitter players might find the resistance band included doesn’t offer enough resistance too, although there’s nothing stopping you using your own. Overall though, it works admirably well.
EA Sports Active isn't a game, that's for sure. It's a personal training program that succeeds well in improving your basic condition and strengthen your muscels. Don't expect a miracly solution though - those don't exist - but it's a very fun and relaxing way to start sporting again without having to pay more than the price of the game. Too bad the accompanying band and rubber disappoint a bit for those that don't weigh 55 kilos anymore, but there are tons of third party and better versions already available of those accessories. Also we would have liked to see more detail for the presentation (sound and graphics) but someone looking for such a type of "game" will probably not be bothered by that.
Si les exercices de Wii Fit sont un peu trop mollassons à votre goût, vous trouverez peut-être votre bonheur avec EA Sports Active. Il n'est pas question ici de s'amuser, le titre est tout entier tourné vers la sueur et l'effort physique. Malheureusement les exercices sont parfois plombés par une reconnaissance de mouvements totalement imprécise.
