Its hard to say one is better than the other because they have their own purpose. For a better overall body routine, the EA Active is better. If you are already doing a seperate strength/resistance routine and just want some extra cardio thrown in for fun, then the Gold's Gym would be better for you (assuming you like boxing).
The EA Sports Active has a wide range of upper body resistance exercises using an exercise band, a range of lower body exercises involving lunges and squats, and various sport simulations for cardio such as running, baseball, volleyball, boxing, and tennis.
The Gold's Gym is primarily a boxing game...made to be exercise, not just a game that happens to get you moving, but there are also mini "games" that include other exercises such as squats, leg lifts, and jump rope.
I have both of these games and they are both great. Not the frustration the Jillian Michaels game was like at all.
