You’re in the Movies (Xbox360)

EL33TONLINE

  • 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

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.

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. Entre l'intégration de votre image laissant à désirer et le côté répétitifs des mini-jeux, on ne s'amuse pas longtemps sur le soft de Codemasters. On s'attendait à ce que l'apsect visuel, élément clé du jeu, soit mieux exploité. Le rendu étant à chaque fois en deçà des espérances.
  • 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: 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 be bad, can it?

  • 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. Langt om længe tages kampen nu også op her med You’re in the Movies.

Expert Review

Xbox Gazette
19 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Avec une idée de départ originale et le fait que ce jeu soit le seul à exploiter complètement les capacités de la Live Vision, You're in the Movies avait bien des cartes en main pour rallier à sa cause un public friand de jeux casual. Mise à part quelques parties qui peuvent s'avérer drôles entre amis, ce titre atteint rapidement ses limites, tant au niveau de la durée de vie et de la répétitivité des mini-jeux que de la technologie utilisée pour le détourage.

You're in the Movies

Gamereactor
22 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Karate Kid, Star Wars og Superman. Alle film der i min uskyldige barndom udløste ekstatiske jubelscener ved rulleteksternes fremtræden. Ren filmmagi. Intet mindre. Og magien fortsatte skam. For de netop gennemlevede, sindsoprivende actionsekvenser, skulle selvfølgelig genopleves live dér i stuen med mine hovedrystende forældre i baggrunden som statister: Det vanskelige tranespark fra Karate Kid, der kunne udradere enhver modstander.
  • Pros: Den b-filmsagtige stemning. Instruktørdelen.
  • Cons: Det manglende, uinspirerende og næsten ikke-eksisterende gameplay.
