Summary: The exercise is good, the graphics are fair, the voices are great but if you don't have great lighting in your home or wherever you setting this up, don't get it. I can use it on sunny days only and my house isn't that dark but dark enough it has trouble picking me up. It's not a bad exercise video at all, in fact the exercise is made into games so it's really fun. Give it a try as long as the lighting is good.
Summary: This game is quite fun if you can get your lighting right. You have to use a fish eye lens on your already limited camera to get the distance one needs to be visible full body- then it has to be uniform through-out the area you're using. This is more difficult than it seems, but if achieved, the game is really cool and quite physically challenging.
Summary: The biggest drawback to this game is that it requires a large room in order to get a good workout. If you stand too close to the camera, then you don't need to jump or reach at all during the game. I solved this problem to some extent by mounting the camera high on the wall and pointing it downwards, but of course that makes the angle a bit wonky.
Summary: I was so excited when I received this game. However, I had to clear out my entire basement and put in a floodlight for it to work with the eye toy. I can't get far enough back from the screen and the annoying cartoon guy keeps telling me every minute or so to step back. If it wasn't for that, it would be a lot of fun.
Summary: I was disappointed that this game only has about 22 "games" and many of them aren't games at all, but are just exercise routines you follow (ab workout, arm workout, yoga, tai chi, etc., which require very limited or no interaction with the camera anyway.) A simple workout DVD would suffice and woudl be cheaper. I found only a few of the games to be fun.
Summary: A well thought out game with fun activities that DO give you a work out, is over-shadowed by the devil of all Eye Toy games: lighting. The game requires your whole body to be in the screen to complete most of the activities. This is seemingly impossible for someone with a small and crowded house (such as mine.) And when you do finally get to a comfortable position, there's the issue of the lighting.
Summary: Game delivered quickly. the idea behind the game is good but there is too much messing about and waiting before you start to play. The main problem, is the amount of space that you need. It is impossible to play in a relatively small room. You need at least four feet either side of you and be able to move about 12 feet away from the screen.
Summary: I bought this game with great anticipation, as one who hates the gym and needs to do some regular exercise. Jumping around to the average Eyetoy games is all well and good, but this looked like a structured and more scientific way of exercising. The games are split into cardio, combat, toning and "mind and body" sections, and you can either choose to build and save your own routines or follow a 12-week plan designed by the software, dependent on your height, weight and...
