2 September 2013
  • Summary: A year removed from the PlayStation Move's launch, one should expect that tech demos and minigame compilations would be out of the door to make way for the kind of genuinely rich experiences that were promised. Carnival Island is a compilation of minigames that demonstrate the technology of the PlayStation Move. Oh well. Same time next year?

15 March 2012
  • Excerpt: When video game historians look back on the era of the Wii, the most hotly debated topic will be the Casual game.

What is the excuse – pardon me – reason to bring together a group of mini games? Well, a magical floating island of course, full of carnival games!

Step Right Up!

  • Conclusion: Carnival Island does exactly what it claims to on the box: it offers a compelling (and challenging) set of carnival-themed mini-games, a light story and offers the perfect all-ages showcase for the Move. If you have a Move, you want this game.
