Excerpt: I can distinctly remember, back when DVD finally started to become more than just a fringe format, visiting a friend’s apartment one night and finding myself playing a DVD-based movie trivia board game with a group of about five people. There was an actual board, with pieces, dice, cards, etc. And the DVD was used to play various clips and clues to go along with whatever trivia question you were being asked.
Conclusion: Yoostar 2 can, in the right circumstances, be a hilarious title necessary for every party, but its lack of content coupled with a rather offensive DLC model means, if you do consider cinema karaoke to be your idea of a good time, you will still want to approach this title with a huge heap of scepticism.
Summary: Don't come to WRC 2 looking for a photo-realistic Rally Sim. I'm afraid you won't find it. What you will find through - once you've waded through the UI - is a good, solid, fun rally-racing game which you'll enjoy playing.
Conclusion: If you, your friends and family love movies and are considering Yoostar 2 as a purchase, then get it because you will have hours of fun. But unless you’re a hardcore movie nut who can watch the same thing over and over, it’s probably more advisable to rent it for those special occasions.
Pros: Good Menu system. Easy for anyone to play. Will scratch an itch for movie fans like no other game can.
Cons: Poor selections of clip(s) from iconic movies. A great idea going to waste with age restriction. DLC will be the cash cow for anyone who buys this game.
Excerpt: The simplest way to describe Yoostar 2: In the Movies would be 'movie karaoke'. The concept, and the original Yoostar itself, began on PC and Mac and essentially allowed users to insert themselves into famous movie scenes to re-enact and riff on them. A huge part of the experience is also the social aspect, as users can then upload their clips onto the Yoostar site for others to view, rate and comment upon.
Excerpt: When first hearing of this game I thought it was a brilliant idea. A pity the execution was left wanting. Essentially it’s Singstar or Karaoke for the acting set. Choose a scene from a famous movie, step into camera, perform the scene and then watch the playback with you in it. The choice of movies is good with films like The Godfather, Terminator, The Blues Brothers etc, as well as more modern fare such as 300, The Hangover and Kick Ass.
Pros: It’s a good idea, a good range of scenes, probably a lot of fun when drunk.
Cons: The scenes are not quite right, the scene cut-out is patchy, framing right requires too much room, just not that much fun.
Summary: GRID 2 was het wachten duidelijk waard en geeft heel veel spektakel. Zoek je een simulatie, dan ben je bij GRID aan het verkeerde adres. Zoek je een vette race game, dan zit je zeker goed bij GRID 2. De game verschilt van racen op circuits, racen door steden en racen op smalle weggetjes van bijvoorbeeld Monte Carlo dus er zit wel voor ieder wat wils bij.
Pros: + Game knalt van je scherm af!, + Aggressive AI, + Schademodel heeft invloed op je auto
Cons: - Time Attack is niet altijd even eerlijk, - Framerate kakt af en toe in, - Geen cockpitview
Summary: La saga di Call of Duty è una delle più acquistate ed al contempo criticate dalle attuali generazioni videoludiche. I suoi titoli rappresentano di fatto un modo di fare videogiochi che piace a moltissimi, ma che scontenta certi altri, alimentando asprissime avversioni. Call of Duty è una serie fortemente ancorata ad una precisa logica di genere, che punta tutto su spettacolarità e coinvolgimento.
