You’re in the Movies (Xbox360)

EL33TONLINE
24 March 2010
  • 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!

You're In The Movies

Auracore MediaWorks
21 April 2009
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: The Xbox Live Vision Camera has been under-used and no mistake. To rectify that, Microsoft are attempting to open up a new sub-genre of their own, with You’re In The Movies. The only man that can rival my moustache’s awesomeness – Burt Reynolds – has been hired to help promote it, so it just cannot...

Expert Review

GameSpot
21 November 2008
  • Summary: You're in the Movies' camera-based gameplay promises lots of laughs, but delivers too many groans. The premise is to get in front of the camera for a series of minigames. As you swat-the-fly, chop-the-block, pull-the-rope, and run-in-place, the camera records your actions to be inserted into a movie...
  • Pros: Gets players off the couch, Aspiring thespians will love hamming for the camera
  • Cons: Inconsistent movement recognition, No online, Annoying director, Tedious gameplay, Activities necessary to win games don't translate to actions in the movies

Film på tomgang

17 May 2009
  • Summary: You’re in the Movies er eit spel som på papiret høyrest ganske festleg ut. Putt deg sjølv inn i ein film, og le av det etterpå. Dette blir likevel ikkje heilt riktig. Det er ingen reelle filmar her, berre tretti fiktive filmtrailerar, og det blir ikkje interessant nok i lengda.

Test You're in the Movies

Generation NT
31 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Si le concept de You're in the Movies avait de quoi séduire, le résultat final déçoit. Le divertissement perd de sa saveur assez rapidement et le titre peine à maintenir notre intérêt intact.
  • Pros: Mode Réalisateur, Installation facile de la caméra
  • Cons: Mauvaise incrustation de l'image dans les décors, Scénarios un peu kitsch, Mini-jeux répétitifs, Ennui survenant trop rapidement

  • Excerpt: Microsoft og Xbox 360 er efterhånden kommet godt ind på alle Sonys traditionelle nicher med diverse ’ekstra fysisk tilbehør’ (*host* gimmicks *host*) til spil. Selv Singstar har nu fået direkte konkurrence i form af Lips. Et område, der var rigtig stort i de glade PS2-dage, er Eyetoy.
