 A rush job that doesnt work (out)

First up, credit where credit is due - the Heart Rate Monitor is great, works perfectly, and provides realtime feedback, which in turn makes exercising more interesting. All good so far.

However, it is an excercise tool, and it just doesnt work anywhere like it should. The devil here is in the detail - all Kinnect games are all Kinnect "game/title", this one is merely in brackets like an after thought - thats because it is.

This title was not built for the Kinect, it was built for the Wii and PS3, and this is just a hack of that for the Kinnect - a straight up way for EA to get more money out of something already done.

Does that matter? Massively. Heres why. The tracking is poor. However, that actually doesnt matter, as long as you can get on with your Workout. Well, you can't. It just randomly pauses, for no reason at all, and you constantly have to yell at it to try and activate the voice command, and when that fails, and it often does, you then have to reach for a controller to hit the A button.

It often pauses when you are just holding a stretch - you havent gone anywhere or moved or turned the lights off - it saw you perfectly fine you for the first 15 seconds of holding the stretch, why then does it decide it cant see you and pause!!

Its random to, and it just disrupts your workout by breaking your rhythm while you stop and get it going again - the whole point of this title is an exercise tool yet it stops you all the time from exercising! No one would tolerate a First Person Shooter if you couldnt do any First Person Shooting!

To qualify my review - I have plenty of clear space (move the coffe table and couch out of the way), plain carpet and wall, good lighting, a healthy heart(the monitor is not registering a heart attack or flatline), and a very mild accent. I have other Kinnect titles that perform amazingly perfect and dont randomly pause all the time.

One more thing - EA couldnt even be bothered to license some decent tunes to work out to - music being widely used by most people to aid exercise. You can add your own tunes, but again, its just another point of how little EA done to get this"working" on the Kinect.

I have used a friends "Your Shape : Fitness Evolved" that is a proper Kinect built title, and it shows as it is mint - 1,000,000,000 x better.

EA, this is a disgrace. I will stick with it only becasue I have already handed over my cash, though will move to something better as soon as I can.

We can only hope EA do it properly if a Sports Active 3 ever gets made.

If you havent brought this, please dont - go for "Your Shape : Fitness Evolved" or wait until EA do a proper version.

There will be no "Update" to fix these problems, as its at the core of the games engine - no chance some patch could fix it.

I give it 1 Star for the Heart Rate Monitor - hopefully when SA3 arrives I will be able to use it with that and it wont be a complete waste of my cash.

EA, "its NOT in the game" this time.

 Avoid.

I've had this since launch, and with Kinect a few exercises don't register, and it random loses you so it pauses the game & waits for you to return.... even though you've not moved from the cameras view, and video tutorials have a nasty habbit of popping up mid-workout & voice control usually means your shouting "Skip" "Skip!" "Skiiipp" "SKIP!!" "SKIPPPP!!!" "SKIP!!!!!!" in hopes it'll pick you up resulting in a very tedious workout.

Also on every other menu it likes to "Connecting To EA Servers" and EA servers seem to be very poor, some times this message will be on screen for 5 seconds other times 5 minutes until it decides the servers aren't there or you cancel it (until you goto another menu)

The game itself is very good, but it was clearly designed for Wii/PS3 and then EA decided they'd bodge some Kinect into it. (And i gather PS3 version has a few issues aswell)

I'd of reviewed this sooner, but ive been awaiting an update for EA Sports Active 2 to fix these problems, and well Finally! EA have released an update that fixes, well, pretty much nothing of relevance.

If i had kept my receipt it'd of certainly rammed it back, but i didn't so EA screwed me out of another 60 quid, I'd recommend buying Yourshape instead as its motion detection is infinitely superior.

Edit: I'd love to know if people rating this 5/5 are actual using the X360 version or just PS3/Wii - There's 3 of us with this game in a variation of room sizes & lighting situations, 1 has returned it, the other is baring his teeth hoping for an update, and i'm using it as a coffee coaster.

 Really good

I have found this to be really good! It makes you warm up and cool down between exercises and really can get you sweating! The sensors work very well and feels like a quality product.

Similar to wii fit but without the scales!

I bought this for xmas and have had lots of problems with it..first the box states a minimum space 2.1 meters i have 2.5 and cant use a lot of the exercises as you need to face the sensor and need to be low to the floor on many exercises a minimum of 3 metres (9+ feet) is probably best... the movment pauses and does not track movement very well

 Good workout

I have Ea sports and EA sports more workouts on the Wii but loved the idea of not having to strap the controler to my leg. After reading reviews i was in 2 minds about buying it, I did and have had no problems except sometimes with the floor workouts as i need to move the kinect to a different level but it isnt an issue to do this. Much prefer this to the wii version where i had many more problems with it recognising movements.
