    Yoostar 2 can be appealing in the same way going out to a karaoke bar can be. It's silly, it's embarrassing, but it can also be quite a bit of fun if you're surrounded by friends.

    Yoostar 2 could be a barrel of laughs and really is if you have the means and gathering of friends and social buddies to enjoy it, but keep in mind all isn't glamorous in this Hollywood setting. If you have all the right components, Yoostar 2 could be the "Rock Band" of the actor's guild. For the rest of us, it may be more worth it to rent or watch a movie in its entirety.

    Maybe with better tech this one could become a box office smash, but for right now, you should leave it on the cutting room floor.

    Yoostar 2 is a fun idea and is certainly something that's best played with friends, but its technical limitations do spoil the rather short-lived experience. Best saved for a rental on a rainy day.

    Yoostar 2 is certainly a good game for its genre. Thanks also to the lack of real competitors, the title is definitely recommended for all cinema's lovers and actors missed. The game isn't without flaws, but with the right friends it'll make a fun evening.

    Despite its expansive career-mode, Yoostar 2 is a title that you'll play fanatically for days on end. It's prominently a game used to breathe new life into parties. The game's concept is decent and offers enough options for someone to pretend they're a famous actor alone, or with a friend. The technical issues however, hold it back from reaching certain stardom.
  7. It's more Golden Rasberry than red carpet. [Apr 2011, p.119]

    Really nothing more than a fun concept that isn't anything other than a reasonably impressive novelty. [Issue#204, p.90]

    Entertains under very specific conditions, but pricey and naff. [June 2011, p.90]

    Everyone (and their mother) wants to be a movie star. But unfortunetly, Yoostar 2 is so casual, horrenous and broken that it makes Wii Fit look like a true hardcore title. Avoid this crap at all costs. The nicest thing to say about it, is that it is laughably bad.
  11. It's nothing groundbreaking, but it's simple fun for those looking for some self-made party-time entertainment. [June 2011, p.75]
  12. Movie karaoke isn't a new phenomenon but Yoostar 2 has brought it into the videogame space with some digital wizardry. Yoostar 2, in that case, is to movie karaoke what Rock Band is to drumming along to the radio on your steering wheel. There are some technical imperfections; we found the lights in our office played hell with the camera and resulted in elements of the kitchen behind us popping up during gameplay as on-screen artefacts. Dimming the lights mostly fixed this but it remained a little grainy... Yoostar 2 is far from perfect but it is very different. [May 2011 p.76]

    Trying to create the next big social title after Singstar and Guitar Hero is no easy feat. Yoostar 2 tries, but the lack of game modes and challenges makes makes for a game that's fun game for one party evening, but not several.

    A party game with a lot of well known movies in it. You have to play different scenes from different movies. The PlayStation Eye scans your body and with the microphone on the camera you have to speak out the lines that normally the actor would say. An original concept, but the problem is that it isn't really working.

    Altogether, Yoostar is as baffling as Gwyneth Paltrow in a rom-com: smart and charming, sure, but basically uninteresting, and nobody's first choice for a fun night in.
