  • 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]

    This is unreal!!! I saw the demo at San Diego Comicon on August 2001, and they had huge lines of people wanting impatient to play. I was one of them and I can?t believe that now I have it at home. It?s like being in the role of Tom Cruise in Minority Report, but without the glove. I can?t wait for more games to come. You'll love it!! I do, and my wife does, too!! (She usually doesn't play with this stuff, so you can tell how cool the EyeToy is...) Expand

    Highly addicting, whether your busting ninjas, dancing, spinning plates, boxing, or heading a soccer ball. Some of the games aren't very good, like UFO juggler, or ghost eliminator, but other than those, it's perfect. Buy it now so you get it before groove, play 2, fight, and sports come out in the us.

    I am almost certian everyone will love this thing, but after about 4-5 hours later it will start to lose its novelty.
