  • Summary: The Shoot is a first-person oriented shooter game for PlayStation 3 that uses the PlayStation Move controller and the PlayStation Eye peripheral to create a unique motion-controlled arcade gaming experience. Set amidst a movie-themed game setting, players use a single PlayStation Move controller to target appropriately movie-themed enemies and to interact with the gameworld, while the PlayStation Eye camera monitors their location for enemies bent on returning fire of their own. Additional features include two-player support, 480p and 720p HD video support and more. Expand

    If you have the PlayStation Move, you need The Shoot. It's a great, fun addition to the genre and makes good use of the Move controller.

    In the end, The Shoot is actually one of the better PlayStation Move titles but unfortunately it's plagued by a very short completion time.
  3. The fresh concept gives a shot in the arm to one of the stalest genres around. [Christmas 2010]

    The Shoot is a stylish rail shooter that both entertain and annoy. The actual shooting works fine, but some other movements are not always recorded as they should. Moreover, it's unnecessarily difficult to unlock the few courses that are available - especially for younger players. Thanks to the nice setting and an intelligent scoring system, The Shoot is still a good choice for fans of the genre.
  5. You'll burn through each movie pretty fast; there are only a few hours of gameplay here. The levels are designed with unlockables in mind to prompt multiple playthroughs. If you get sucked into high scores you'll likely want to give it a few goes to try and boost it. [December 2010 p79]

    The Shoot lacks any really depth and the multiplayer element hasn't been implemented as well as it could have been and as a result despite not being a bad shooter overall the game quickly starts to feel repetitive.

    The Shoot is a rail-shooter that will soon be forgotten. It´s overly casual style and rotten gameplay is an abysmal addition to a genre haunted by bad titles. It´s Playstation Move integration feels like a bad gimmick, and you much rather want to poke your eye out with the controller than point it at the screen.

    Very simple yet addictive gameplay - you just shoot! Some bonuses and extras available. Graphics and audio is cool (no blood). Easy calibration and accurate aiming. Very good relax title - it is not hardcore game! Expand

    This is a fun game. If you want the memories of playing rail shooters at the arcade, this is it. It's simple mechanics make it easy for anyone to pick up. I'd suggest getting a gun attachment for authenticity. Scoring system is cool, as it makes you try to get 100% accuracy. Personally, I thought the cardboard cut-out style was awesome, and something I hadn't seen done so well before. Rent for sure...but at $40 bucks, why not have it so you can play it whenever friends or family come over? Expand

    i love rail shooting games and the PS move is just made for them . so when i heard the shoot was one and saw it was only $20 i decided to pick it up. the game is basically 4 movies and you are a actor in them and you go along a path shooting the enemies trying to rack up a multiplier for a high score to make the director happy. you get 3 bonus attacks that let you eather slow down time , give your rapid fire , or shoot every thing on the screen at once. its kind of fun and the game can toss alot of enemies at once at you but the game is really no challange at all to beat and there is no difficulty settings. the only replay value there is to be had is to go through again and get a higher score or work on trophys.the graphics are pretty bland and are made to have a b movie look and all have a card board cut out look which is a shame . this could have been a much better rail shooter as is it's just ok and if you really like them like me and have a ps move then its worth picking up if you can get it for $20 or less.

    SO MUCH MORE could have been done with this game. Co-op and competitive story modes that you can actually play from the beginning, Improved statistics, and of course, more than 5 levels. I suppose this could be good for younger players, however, even they would be frustrated by the movement controls outside of shooting (special shots, quick draws, etc.) Expand
