Conclusion: The voice detection is rubbish, even when telling the truth it said i was lying. it could however be quite amusing with a party of players and a few bottles of wine, but i doubt it. On the other hand it does make a excellent door stop. i dont think it has much use for anything else, if possible rent it.
Excerpt: The world of videogames is ever-changing; constantly adapting and evolving into new areas of fun and excitement.

Excerpt: With the cancellation of Xbox Live’s 1 vs. 100 having crushed our inner game-show nerd, we were desperate for just about anything similar on 360 — but we won’t settle for Truth or Lies. We immediately rallied around the game’s premise of escaping embarrassing questions with lies/telling the truth to earn points, but its internal “lie detector technology” is the biggest fib of ’em all.
Pros: + Some great bait questions encourage hilarious answers; neat concept.
Cons: - Terrible, seemingly random lie detector ruins the entire game., - Annoying announcer and vanilla presentation., ? Come on, no Schwarzenegger references?
Excerpt: I tell no lie, this isn’t worth your time Anyone born in either the 60′s or Sesame Street need only a minute pixel of blood to spill upon their television screens to join forces with political correctness and fly off into the night sky in a desperate bid to spoil everyone’s fun for the greater good. Words never work against such inflamed bigots, yet their bids for more innocent based entertainment may never cease.
Pros: Great to laugh at for the first 10 minutes or so, Well categorised questions for all age groups
Cons: Basic and cliche questions, The lie detector technology doesn’t work half the time
