Summary: This is gonna be short. The game is realy cool, and the card thing is innovative (kinda), but the little frustion involved in just set-up makes this game not worth the money, plain and simple. Although if you have some sort of permanent set-up where you don't need to ever move the board and stand, then yeh this game is worth it. It all depends on your situation. Oh, one last thing . . .
Summary: Before you buy this game, please consider these facts - you must set up the USB camera and grid, also lay all your cards just to play, even by yourself - you need sufficient brightness in the room for the grid (where you place your cards) - the USB camera has to be attached to your PS3 while you play.
Summary: The game itself is a blast to play, alone or with others in the room or online. There are a decent amount of cards out there to make a variety of playable decks. The idea of the game is really quite awsome, however the setup is a PITA. the lighting is tricky during the daylight and the camera base is too light. These things can be remedied fairly easily, but just a pain. The card copiers take away from the pure nature but that is another can of worms.
Summary: Look, this game isn't absolutely amazing, but it is new and interesting. Its probably even better if one enjoys card games to begin with (I actually never play with cards, at least not until this game I didn't). What keeps the game from being amazing are a few things in my opinion: 1- Its a card game which means it has the upsides and downsides of card games.
Eye of Judgement PS3 - Excellent, innovative and unique title
18 July 2010
Excerpt: After a long time in development, and originally being intended for release on the PS2, Sony launched the Eye of Judgment along with the PS3’s version of the Eye Toy. The games did originally retail at £69.99 with camera included and for me has been one of the most underrated titles on the consoles and one which is worth looking into. The game is basically a card game.
Summary: Good value for money with the camera/microphone and game. The microphone/camera can be used with multiple games. As for the eye of judgement game itself trailers made it look a lot better than it is. Gets boring very quickly since there is only really 1 game type and no story or anything like that and its not very multiplayer on 1 game since you only have 1 deck of cards. Online play or if other people also have the game it is quite good online.
Conclusion: First of all the concept of bringing these carded monsters alive on the screen is a pretty good idea. Here are a few disadvantages and advatages for you. Advantages: - Good image reproduction onto screen - The 'EYE' can be used for other things aswell - Can read the cards fairly well - Endless playability, so you can never get bored Disadvantages - Requires very bright area in order to make it work - Takes a while to understand and get used to how to play (therefore...
Conclusion: Hmmm where to start with eye of judgement? Well it's certainly not for everyone. It's a very interesting idea and if you can pick a copy up cheap as I did (Â£25) you getting a hell of a bargain since the camera is worth about 20 on its own.
