  • Summary: EyeToy includes 12 exciting interactive games based on music, puzzles, sports and other original genres. Each mini-game requires the player to use their body in unique ways, from quick jabs in Boxing Chump, high leg kicking in Kung Foo, rhythmically tapping hands and feet in Beat Freak, and even using high-knees and headers in Keep Ups. The multiplayer mode offers numerous additional challenges and a chance to compete against and laugh with, and at, friends. With no need for a controller, anyone can have fun with EyeToy, and no previous gaming experience is required. Watch as players jump, kick, and flail their arms to create entertaining action with EyeToy. [Sony] Expand

  1. While it may look a bit strange to move your body frantically in front of the TV screen, especially if you're playing by yourself, the EyeToy offers family-friendly fun and a little exercise, too.
  2. It's the simplicity of it that works; that's what will undoubtedly make this thing the ultimate party toy. [Nov 2003, p.146]
  3. If you must know why I fancy this one so much, it's because you're a giant on the screen and it looks like you have sole control over the cosmos. I dig it. [Oct 2003, p.123]
  4. The one thing that I loved was the boxing game. Fighting a robot and kicking the snot out of it was just totally fun. I was laughing and just having a great time during the bout. I don’t know, maybe I am a total cheese ball.
  5. Given how entertaining it is in short bursts, it’s the perfect thing to bring out at parties or get-togethers, making this one of the easiest ways to rally the whole family around one of the hardest possible family-wide activities: playing video games.
  6. As is the case with most party games, EyeToy is simplistic at best, but the way you play the game truly makes it a one-of-a-kind experience that just about anyone, regardless of skill, can enjoy.

    The games are junk, but the EyeToy itself is brillian. Pick it up. [Nov 2003, p.47]

    The motion controls are certainly a novelty to start with but, due to the lack of accuracy of the EyeToy itself and shallow nature of all the mini-games, that novelty soon wears off. As a result very few people will still be using it regularly after more than a couple of weeks. Expand
