Excerpt: A triple threat is someone who can sing, dance, and act. For aspiring gamers, it’s possible to practice your timing and pitch with games like Singstar, and you can work on hitting the right moves for actual dances with the latest generation of dancing games. But what about that last skill?
Summary: Going into the review of the Xbox 360 version of Yoostar 2 In the Movies, I was pretty optimistic, as I enjoy breaking out movie and TV show quotes (That’s what she said!) just as much as the next guy.
Conclusion: — The game can be fun, but it’s strictly a multiplayer affair, and it needs more meat. As it stands, it feels a bit like the publishers’ way to lead owners into a world of endless microtransactions.
Conclusion: The career mode in Yoostar 2 consists of completing random and seemingly unrelated scenes to unlock another portion of the same town all without NPC interaction, plot, or purpose. Final Thoughts : 100% rental.
Conclusion: On paper (or celluloid) Yoostar 2 is a great idea, but it's hampered by a sloppy user interface, blocky outlines, Kinect tics and a weird mix of movie clips. It's guaranteed to provide a few hours of entertainment and some hearty belly laughs, but ultimately, Yoostar 2 is a bit of a box-office flop.
Conclusion: Yoostar 2’s developer Blitz Games got it right by calling their game a ‘movie karaoke’ experience – and in all senses of the word, it truly is best defined this way. Having your bodily image projected into film and TV scenes is as charming as it tedious in practice.
Review: Yoostar 2: In The Movies (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Excerpt: The party game is not a new invention. If a game has a local multiplayer function and is in any way popular there is a chance that somebody somewhere has invited friends over, sat down in front of thew couch, and popped the game in their system of choice.
Conclusion: Huge credit to Yoostar support though. The team working on the official Facebook page have been brilliant, offering a wide range of solutions and tips to get better quality and reacting quickly to sort out a few technical issues that plagued the opening couple of days of launch.
Excerpt: Who does not know the old cliché line, Lights, Camera, Action! An interesting twist on the Karaoke theme comes “Yoostar 2 In The Movies” by Yoostar Entertainment Group, and developed by the talented folks at Blitz Games Studios.
Summary: I loved it. I started out insanely aware that I was in my front room talking to a black strip, trying to perfect two words from Blues Brothers. Shortly afterwards I was bellowing "This Is Sparta", doing accents and really getting into the role. Let your hair down and it's a great game.
