Eye Toy Play (With Eye Toy Camera)

Playstation Illustrated
22 October 2005
  • Excerpt: The graphics in Eye Toy Play are stylized and comical in nature, but the main 'character' in the games in Eye Toy Play is literally you (and your closest friends). With the aid of the Eye Toy USB camera, your image is injected into the game, mirroring your actions. Unlike a mirror, however, the PS2 can manipulate your image in a variety of ways and can determine where motion has occurred and use that as (mousing type) input to the game.

  • Excerpt: contains a selection of 12 mini-games, lets you mess around with snazzy visual effects in the Playroom or leave a message on your PS2 like a visual answering machine. Sure, I know how it sounds when I try to explain how a widow washing game is fun or heading a virtual soccer ball is actually very challenging but both statements are true. Window Washing (called Wishi Washi) is the favorite game of my 6-year old, Gage.

  • Excerpt: It is rare indeed that a peripheral manages to stand out as a truly innovative accessory that enhances the experience of playing games. The exceptions include, but are not limited to the NES Light Gun, Galoob’s Game Genie, Konami’s DDR Dance Pad, and Nintendo’s Wavebird, not to mention a host of creative creations from the risk takers at Sega such as the Samba De Amigo maracas, the Seaman microphone, and the Dreamcast network adapters.

  • Excerpt: Now I was only born in 1985 but thanks to older mates with magazine collections and my own research into retro gaming I have a good idea what went on before I entered this world. Flicking through the hit magazine 2000 AD shows people in silver suits, flying cars, inter-galactic wars and day trips to mars and the moon. We are now in 2003 and have Internet fridges. Something tells me we’ve been conned.

  • Conclusion: Had we rushed a review of Eye Toy out while still under the euphoric spell of its initial charms we'd have given it a 10 without hesitation, having played it for several days now, we're still inclined to give it a 10 - we've tried to make a justifiable reason for knocking the score down, but we can't. You can criticise the graphics for being less than cutting-edge 3D, or the games for being a bit samey and simple.
  • Pros: Brilliant interface with a selection of clever games., It's videogame that gets you off your arse and moving., Top multiplayer party game fun., Eye Toy even appeals to people who don't normally like games., There will be more games that use the Eye Toy.
  • Cons: Menus and selections could have been better designed., Did we really need the cutesy characters?

  • Conclusion: MS Super-familieunderholdning. Kameraet kan v�re lidt drilsk med m�rke baggrunde og b�rneh�jder. MP Genial teknologi. Ekstremt underholdende og simple spil. Mangler en smule diversitet.

  • Conclusion: Dit is het ideale partyspel voor iedereen! Zelfs vaders en tantes die geen bal van gamen kennen smijten zich hier in. Nu moeten er enkel nog games gereleased worden die deze cam ondersteunen en als het even kan het geheel integreren in de PS2onlinediensten en dit wordt een dikke hit!
  • Pros: Goed voor de conditie, Origineel, Fun Fun Fun!
  • Cons: Lastig voor de conditie, Laadtijden, Lelijke mensen worden veel met zichzelf geconfronteerd
