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.

I have never really enjoyed going to gyms as always feel very self conscious, and generally speaking find them a bit dull, but have recently wanted to increase my fitness level and start to lead a more healthy lifestyle. I'm not all that fit, so thought this would be a good way of getting a bit fitter without having to feel so self conscious. I have to say I wasn't really expecting much from it, and have been very impressed by what I have seen. The added heart rate monitor is excellent, as it enables you to see the change in your heart rate throughout the programme. I have been at it for a good few weeks now, and can already see that my level of fitness has increased.

There is a great array of exercises, some of which are really fun, such as basketball, football, mountain boarding, and mountain biking, and there are three levels - easy, medium and hard. There's also a good number of stretches to do in it which I have found to be very useful.

After reading a few reviews one of my main worries about EA Sports Active 2 was whether or not the sensors would be very good, but I have to say I have had very few problems with them. There has been the odd exercise where I've got a little frustrated with them, but I've always found a way around it, and have never found that it ruins the enjoyment of it.

I don't think this would replace the gym, or other types of exercise for everyone, but I have found it to be a great introduction to fitness, and can see myself continuing to use it alongside other exercise methods in the futre. My only real complaint about it is the resistance band isn't all that good, but considering the price, I'd be quite happy to go and replace this with something else.

All in all it's great, and I have now started to look forward to exercising

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.

I was going to join a gym this year, but decided to opt for the easy option and have fun at the same time by purchasing Active 2. The reviews were excellent and justifiably so. I had no problems setting up the straps, and instead of using the resistance band thats included, I now use my own weights, which should offer better results. There is a vast array of options available which should suit persons of any fitness to achieve their own personal goals.

I'm only slim so haven't purchased it to lose the calories that the 'game' has as its main core but wish to gain more muscle strength and lose a bit of the old belly, and thankfully, active 2 allows you to pick and choose the exercises to target what it is you want to achieve.

The exercises are in short sharp bursts, so they don't become mundane, before being repeated further into the routine.

If you put the effort and motivation into active 2 then it should help you in your quest, it feels good to actually become breathless, work up a sweat and have achey muscles in the comfort of your own home.

Another major advantage is that my water intake has increased to aid hydration, so as well as the game working wonders, my skin should benefit as well.

The only problem with the game is that at times the system doesn't pick up the fact you are doing an exercise which is annoying and you therefore have to skip the exercise and move onto the next one, yet how it knows you are doing one in the first place is a marvel so having to skip the odd one isn't too bad.

Whether the gamer will achieve what they set out to achieve is another matter, yet as an introduction and a fun way to get some exercise its a great way to feel better about yourself.
