Vague title much?
7 August 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is one of the games that came out for the Play-Station 2 EyeToy USB camera, and it comes up with pretty solid game-play for the rather limited options it provides(the Wii, it surely ain't). It tests your reflexes, coordination and movement speed. Basically, you see your upper body on-screen(with a color tint, frame and animated stuff, all of them fitting the specific mode you're in; the graphics are nicely done, if there are too many characters), and there's also a motion sensor that notes where your arms and hands(all that it registers) are, and sometimes if they're moving(and how much), in this one angle(remember, it's a 2D image of you, it can see both your left and right, not front and definitely not back... if that makes sense). That's really all it can do. Adding to that, you need to light yourself(not "well", thankfully), you need space around you(stand about 1 and a half to 2 metres in front of the TV for it to work right... and ensure your background is static, not to mention, shy away from shadows on nearby objects), and a few of the activities can be kinda awkward(not to mention how similar some are to each other... and/or easy, particularly in the ones where you, to an extent, can't do anything wrong). Still, most of the dozen are fun(not to mention quick to get into, if practice will improve your performance... you often have three lives or a bar to mind, and all of them are timed, with 2 or 3 minutes per attempt at the most, and some have an extra task or boss at the end), and this is great for parties, for friends to take turns trying the different ones(you can't play it for long by yourself, only three difficulty settings, a top 3(based on your score, points) and a little randomization... it does tire you out, and give you a work-out, so playing one thing then someone else doing one, so you can rest, is optimal). Kung Foo, my personal favorite, is essentially waves of foes and breaking boards, your every movement getting the standard, cliché "whoosh" sound from bad martial arts flicks, not to mention taking out anyone it hits(yes, multiple at one time is entirely possible). What do you mean, ego trip for people who like physical fighting? Wishi Washi is you cleaning windows by wiping across them(because, hey, why would you want to do *actual* work when you can pretend?). Keep Ups is the only where you use your head in any literal sense, as you have to knock a soccer ball into the air(don't let it fall off the bottom!) and at the enemies(be careful not to do the same to the good guys). At least, that's the theory, I can't seem to do even decently at it. Boxing Chump is self-explanatory, and yes, it is indeed odd to smack what's ahead of you whilst looking off to the side to see how you're doing(how on Earth did you know to ask that?). You do have to aim to do well, and I couldn't tell you how to do good at it on Hard. UFO Juggler is surprisingly aptly named. Be careful not to spend too long on one or it'll explode, don't leave it alone or it'll fall back down. Your objective is to get as many as possible to fly off the top. Slap Stream has four clouds, and you have to knock away the bad guys, avoiding the one's who aren't(yeah, it's like KF, only you can't simply go for everyone, it's better to be careful). Plate Spinner is unsurprising, other than that you need to keep certain monkeys(not all of them) from messing with the smooth operation you're meant to have going there. You have to apply the right amount of time to each of them, and pay attention to how they're doing. Boogie Down is like a dance game, and since there are plenty of those by now, I'm sure you can find a better one(what? I don't play them, not my thing). Basically, an NPC will show a couple of moves, and you have to mimic them, in rhythm(or something). Yeah, Simon *and* getting' down. Ghost Catcher has you spotting and taking care of spooks(not the CIA kind), as well as the occasional flock of bats. Mirror Time is a unique experience, and one of the best uses of the possibilities and your reflection. You have to touch green globes and avoid red ones. They'll always appear in the four corners of the screen, and nowhere else. Sounds really straightforward, doesn't it? It is. Until the shot gets flipped. Several times. In different directions. You have to keep track of it, and hurry, because you don't have long before it switches again. And finally, Rocket Rumble is a somewhat clever implementation of the technology, as well. You know those futuristic films where keyboards and the like are holograms, and you move your fingers "in the air" in order to manipulate a computer or machine? It's like that. Only you have to set off fireworks, selecting all the ones in the same color(before they fly off... don't dawdle!), sometimes combining with others using the white ones, and then detonating them using one of the handles(one in each side of the HUD, down in the two corners) when you're ready(again, don't waste time). The tone of this can be really childish, making it annoying, bordering on obnoxious, to play for anyone not still a kid(I'm not kidding, it's got flippin' fart noises and burps, some of your opponents do weird faces, and the writing is done to rhyme and fit in cringe-inducing puns, not to make sense or explain anything). I recommend this to anyone who wants to, and is willing to, get up in front of their television and move in ways that will look preposterous to any onlooker who doesn't realize what you're doing. It's highly entertaining, especially for groups. 7/10
