Impressions: EA Sports Active

The fine folks over at EA have set me up with a copy of EA Active and after spending a few days with it, it’s now time to start my 30 Day challenge and do my review for those of you still on the fence.

Not only do they give you predetermined exercise routines, they allow you to make your own and you just don’t feel like you’ve been taken out of the groove by having to press the A button 3+ times as you move onto the next exercise.
