EA Sports Active 2 is a Kinect-based fitness game for Xbox 360 released in November 2010. Compared to EA Sports and Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout, Active 2 is more fitness oriented. It includes a heart-rate monitor for getting a more optimized workout, over 70+ workouts that can be mixed and matched for customizable workouts, and a full-fledged 9-week program that has been put together by certified trainers. Like Ultimate, Active 2 offers online access… but not for the purpose of competition. It’s more-so to track progress and trade advice with others.
