Excerpt: Gamers, particularly those who’ve owned a number of systems, have probably acquired a number of peripherals that promise to get players physically into the game more than ever before. Remember the Power Glove or the Power Pad? Samba De Amigo’s maracas?
Summary: Most EyeToy games released to date have
largely focused on the novelty of the technology, with most consisting of short

Conclusion: All in all, Herdy Gerdy is my candidate for the most overhyped game of the year for the PS2. The long load time, the uninteresting world and the inherent technical problems all signal that the game needs more time in the cooker.
