Excerpt: With the Eyetoy phenomenon now in full swing following successful games such as Play and Groove, Konami, like Sega, has decided to join the motion-senor bandwagon with the very aptly-named U-Move Super Sports. The built around some 15 sporting events, U-Move literally pits players amidst the action as they stand in front of the quirky Eyetoy camera, attempting to score perfect goals, strike a hole-in-one at golf, and physically tackle virtual rugby players.
Excerpt: Ah, the EyeToy. Sony’s innovation in a world of bland software, film licences, sequels and “me-too” releases. After a slow start, more and more titles are on their way from Sony and third parties to support the device, with Konami’s U Move Super Sports being the first of the third-party offerings to hit the UK and Europe. Promising a batch of sports-based camera fun, it looked like we had a winner to match up against Sony’s own releases.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It looks bland and the games are reasonable. With EyeToy:Play 2 and Sega Superstars already on shelves, there are far superior EyeToy offerings around right now. Even younger audiences should go with those two alternatives.
Excerpt: The musky smell of grown men sweat whilst throwing their arms around like chimps at a tea party, can only mean one thingâ?¦ yes another EyeToy title has invaded the TVG offices. This time around itâ??s the turn of Konami to cash-in on the craze with the release of U Move Super Sports, containing 15 mini-games themed around various popular sports that literally drop you into some of the maddest gaming scenarios weâ??ve ever found ourselves in.
