  1. I'd almost go as far as saying that EyePet makes the Move worth it alone, especially if you have children.
  2. Cynics won't be able to see past the aesthetics that were kid-tested and executive-approved, but the curious might just find something wholly unique and affecting for their PlayStation.

    Pretty much the same game, only a bit better with Move. [Issue#197, p.95]
  4. Your EyePet will quickly feel like a member of the family and it's very rewarding to see a young child's eyes light up when they see and interact with it. If you have children and they want a pet, but you're against the responsibility, EyePet may actually be a decent substitute.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time with EyePet and was surprised by the variety of things to do with him in order to keep things fresh.
  6. If you're already sold on the technology then this is undoubtedly the best version of EyePet to get, but otherwise save your cash and get the first edition, which is still readily available.
  7. We may have seen it all before but the EyePet Move edition transcends the original premise and creates a rather well made virtual pet game that is so abundant on the Wii and the DS. Great graphics, good use of the PlayStation architecture, this might become a must have game for the younger gamer.
  8. The interaction between yourself and EyePet is tremendously accurate and responsive, and I think that's what counts most.
  9. EyePet is a unique experience that children will absolutely adore, provided you can overlook some of the issues that tarnish the experience.
  10. The control issues of the original is gone with the Move Edition. With that - this is a great game for kids and adults with a soft spot for taking care of a cute animal.
  11. For the lady gamers out there: if you like cute things at all, don't be afraid to pick this up, and don't be surprised if your man ends up cooing at that damn monkey-dog right alongside you.
  12. Though it may not completely reinvent the pet sim, Eye Pet's novel use of the hardware proves that even an old dog can learn new tricks.
  13. The problem here are the game's actions are not wholly engaging for both parties. [Nov 2010, p.72]

    EyePet aims its sights squarely away from the traditional shooter fan, but offers a unique perspective with the augmented reality that will make EyePet a great showpiece for new PlayStation Move owners.

    EyePet Move Edition is a game that's exacty the same like the normal edition. The only difference is that on the disc PlayStation Move support is included. Everyone that has the game already can download a free patch, so the game isn't completely new. The game is still very nice and lovely to play, only when you play with the PlayStation Move it isn't really great.
  16. Sony's EyePet is a creative and fun game with plenty of content but it suffers from a lack of proper instruction.
  17. If you're fond of Eyepet and can look past the niggles, interacting with your chosen furball has gotten a whole lot easier and more intuitive – and whilst it's not going to hold your attention for too long, it's well worth the upgrade for fans.
  18. The biggest strength of the game is its interactions between the player and the creature, and about that, the PlayStation Move proves to be much more efficient and practical than the magic card from the original game. With its quite advanced possibilities in customization, its easy handling and its cute creature, EyePet will certainly find its audience.
  19. EyePet: Move Edition has superior presentation. The way you have contact with your hairy pet is shown through funny acted movies. Especially younger players will really get the impressions a living, breathing animal is living in their television. They probably won't mind the not so precise controls.
  20. A pet simulation clearly aimed at young gamers, this new version of EyePet doesn't add so much to the original formula, but you'll be pleased to discover its great variety of gameplay.
  21. There's not that much gameplay here. It can be frustrating and unresponsive at times which may cause kids to give up on this game.

    Ultimately, the EyePet is interesting as a toy, but as a piece of software on the PS3, it's lacking.
  23. A worthless use of the Move controller and something even kids will vomit at.

With many customizable outfits and styles for the EyePet, players can spend quite some time just modifying their pet. There are many activities for the player and their pet from feeding, playing catch, drawing toys for it, and just messing around with the EyePet. The challenges are great for kids.

    This game showcases many cool features for the new Move controller and Playstation Eye. The augmented reality does a great job of immersion and interaction.
