You’re in the Movies (Xbox360)

  • Excerpt: Lights. Xbox Live Vision Camera. Action! You’re in the Movies puts you and up to three friends in the middle of the action in over forty mini-games that will have you running on the spot, waving your arms like you just don’t care, or kicking in the air! The major question on everyone’s lips is, does this game have what it takes to bust box-office expectations, or is it better suited for a Rassie award?

You're in the Movies Review

  • Conclusion: But there seems to be a technical issue as well, in that the cutout changes during the course of the gameplay. In one scene, my appearance isn’t all that bad, but in the next, I might look like my torso is starting to disappear or maybe has a hole blown in the midsection that’s showing the background scene through it. It might be funny at the time, but it’s pretty discouraging when your movie plays back and it just looks broken.

  • Conclusion: Concept: Make wacky movies at home using weatherman-style green screen technology Graphics: Look in the mirror. That's pretty much what you're in for Sound: Purposely over-the-top narration and cliched genre music Playability: If you can wave your arms and jog in place, you're set Entertainment: While it's amusing and cleverly constructed, this probably can't hold up an entire party Replay: Moderate

  • Conclusion: Bad meets mediocre in many places, once the gimmick gets old, the game misses out on the box office, and heads direct to DVD.

  • Excerpt: Good party games are fun enough to effortlessly keep everyone's attention for an evening or so. This, unfortunately, is where You're in the Movies fails. The idea is this: use the Xbox LIVE Vision Camera to literally put you and up to three other players in a movie. With your image imposed in real-time on screen, you're required to chop blocks, swat bees, turn wheels, run on the spot and make faces as the game records footage to be incorporated into brief cheesy...

  • Conclusion: The thirty movies take up to half an hour to complete, and some of the mini-games can be infuriating if the camera malfunctions, not picking up movements and the like, which it most certainly will. The game is successful in providing a quick fix (I personally couldn't play it for longer than two hours at a time). The game fails at it's selling point; it's niche. The camera. Too awkward and sometimes unruly, it makes the game really hard to complete.

Expert Review

  • Summary: This is a difficult game to assign a numerical score. Measured alone, the minigame selection is uneven in both challenge and entertainment value. However, when you get down to playing the game, You're in the Movies offers some of the most uninhibited fun you can have while sober. The disarming quality to the game is perfect for reeling in your casual or non-gamer friends, and once the game gets rolling, even the sub-par minigames can amuse.

  • Summary: You're in the movies doesn't put you in anything except a state of frustration.
  • Pros: Seeing yourself in a cheesy B-movie trailer is good for a cheap laugh; some of the mini-games are fun the first few times; good presentation; "director mode" lets you make your own scripts and trailers; fun factor increases exponentially with alcoholic beverages and a few friends.
  • Cons: Huge technical issues with the Xbox Vision Camera; loses it's appeal after an hour or two; most the mini-games are repetitive and simply not fun; too much work for too little payoff; the "director" is infuriatingly annoying and unfunny; lack of modes.
