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.
Conclusion: Au final ce nouveau jeu compatible avec la petite caméra USB de Sony déçoit. S’il était sorti l’an dernier à la même époque, il ne fait aucun doute que U-Move Supersports aurait été un achat recommandable. Malheureusement pour le titre de Konami, Sega Superstars et surtout Eye Toy Play 2, disponibles eux aussi, restent de bien meilleurs investissements tant le gameplay apparaît plus varié et surtout bien plus travaillé et tirant mieux partie des capacités de l’Eye Toy.
