Excerpt: Invizimals Shadow Zone is the sequel to the interesting and innovative Invizimals. Ya'll may remember my review of the original. There were a few issues with it, that Sony has improved upon them in Invizimals Shadow Zone.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Novarama’s PSP Camera game is best described as Pokemon meets augmented reality. Think manga-esque cutesy mutant animals with special powers battling it out in your living room and you pretty much have a fair assessment of what Invizimals is all about.
Conclusion: It's cute and clever, then, but still more than a little clunky. Attempting to provide gameplay that the camera can't always handle, it risks frustrating its young, genre-savvy audience before they've even collected or evolved a decent collection of creatures.
