5.0 out of 5 stars Much improved on the first 22 Nov 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having used the first Sports Active on the Wii last year, I was very eager to get a copy of SA2; the various demos which had shown up on youtube etc looked very impressive indeed. I went for the PS3 version this time round as I wanted a 'hands free' experience. The unreliability of motion sensor control in the original version on the Wii was the only thing that let it down in my opinion, but there was no real way of getting round that.

So anyway - on to this version. Set up was a cinch; I've read about people having problems getting the wireless sensors to sync, but no such problems here. Straps on, synced up and ready to go. I signed up, made my profile etc. and then headed into a medium workout scheme over 20 days. All good stuff, and broke a sweat as expected (I might restart on the hard workout scheme with which I'm more familiar with from the Wii original). The absolute joy of not being pounded with death by squats is the most immediate improvement that this new version has implemented.

Yes, there are leg exercises, but they're not quite so harsh and are combined with other movements so you don't end up with dead legs. It also helps that you're not expected to do a jog or run as a warm-down - you actually get, in the last three/four exercises, a good series of muscle stretches to warm down properly, a little like the old yoga exercises on the Wii. This new version seems to be much more about 'all over' exercise whilst retaining the cardio-vascular conditioning elements of the first.

One thing - same problem as the original - if you've got arms stronger than an eight year old child, then the resistance cord isn't actually much use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets Your Heart Going 23 Nov 2010
By wicket2005 VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game certainly makes you feel like you have done some exercise with the added benefit of being able to monitor your heart beat. There are 3 monitors that fit on your arms and one leg, these register your movement and heart beat, enabling you to see just how well you are working out.

You input some basic information about yourself and set up the monitors to start, very easy then you get to pick a coach. He shows you how to do each exercise first which you can skip then you follow him into the exercise routine. At the moment the exercises are in bite size sections so you don't get bored but you are still raising your heart beat. I am only on the first week so the total amount of time spent exercising is 25 minutes I don't know if that time expands as you get further into the program. The program is supposed to be a 9 week one so it will be interesting to see if my fitness has increased.

The graphics are very good and a lot more grown up than the Wii Fit. You are encouraged to work at the speed being shown by the coach.

I love it and am off downstairs to use it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gymtastic 2 Dec 2010
By possessed.by.a.lemon TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Unlike its Wii counterpart, EA Sports Active 2 on PS3 doesn't use the host console's motion controller. Instead it comes with an exclusive extra arm sensor. This is a good thing and makes exercising a completely hands-free experience, ironically bettering the Kinect version on 360, which at the time of writing is suffering from a number of teething troubles. On PS3 you can be where you want in the room and you only need to worry about a joypad when it comes to menus. All communication with the sensors and heart-rate monitor goes through the small USB dongle. This is perfect and it's a wonder EA made it any different for the other formats.

The 'game' looks like little more than the upscaled Wii title that it so clearly is. It certainly doesn't make the graphics chip sweat, but the arrival on PS3 has a couple of new features unfamiliar to Wii owners. Notably, in the options menu is a link to the EA Store, which will eventually see extra downloadable exercise programmes added. Wii owners also appear to be experiencing set-up problems with the new heart-rate monitor. I don't know if this extends to PS3, but it certainly didn't extend to me. Syncing all three sensors was fast and easy. This is perhaps because the Wii's USB port is on the back of the console and the PS3's is on the front. The heart-rate monitor is, of course, the big new addition to this sequel. It works as a form of positive feedback, just like the calorie counter, and its key task is to let you know if you need to raise or lower your game. Anyone can cheat the moves, but you're only cheating yourself and the HRM makes a point of telling you when the calorie counter is being fooled.

5.0 out of 5 stars FORGET YOUR GYM - LOST OVER 2st!!!! 7 Sep 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Been toying with the idea of purchasing for a while and in May I saw it for £30 (not Amazon but they were pretty competitive too) and decided to go ahead as I had a shock when I stepped on a set of scales.

Needed top get in shape having just turned 40 and carrying a bit of extra timber.

I have a PS3 and agree that the ability to walk/run around as it doesn't use a camera like the Xbox Kinect version (I also own an Xbox but refuse to pay £100 for a camera) is a great advantage.

Must say I had to replace the 'game' as the Heart Monitor would not sync, the 2nd copy was fine with no issues.

I decided to dive in and do the 9wk programme.

The 1st work outs last 15-20mins and if you're unfit you will struggle at first - looking ahead to see what was in store in a few weeks scared me to death with some workouts lasting nearly 50mins!!

However slowly but surely my strength increased and my lungs opened.

No major results for the 1st 3 weeks but then................WOW

I started to use a well know app called My Fitness Pal (Brilliant) to control my daily calorie intake and trust me they are a match made in heaven.

By the end of the 9wks (Mid July 11) I had lost 24lbs!! (1st 10lbs) and 3inches off my waist.

I have continued to use the System 2-4 times a week selecting whatever part of my body I want to concentrate on (mainly doing Core and Ab workouts now) and to date I have lost over 30lbs (over 2st) in 15wks

I am at my most athletic for years and feel (and look imo) fantastic.

Over 4 inches off my waist now means I have to buy a whole new wardrobe, clothes I haven't worn for years now fit - the feeling of being able to fit into regular clothes at a shop is brilliant.
