  1. EyePet is a fun game that kids will simply adore and even some adults will get a kick out of it.
  2. For sure one of the most innovative games I have ever seen!
  3. Minor technical quibbles aside, it’s all at once charming, engaging, innovative, interesting and humorous and perfectly pitched at its target audience (namely kids and adults with kids!), not to mention reasonably priced.
  4. EyePet is the new Sony offering focused on the youngest users of PS3. Our television will be the home of an charming mascot with which we will be able to interact in different mini games. Some of the mini games are not explained properly, but EyePet is an ideal gift for children, nephews or small brothers.

    Kids and the so-called casual gamer will undoubtedly eat this Eyepet up like candy. It looks adorable and its interaction gives it something unique in today's market. Unfortunately, it doesn't always respond as it should and the whole is a bit lacklustre, although you can buy additional downloadable content already.
  6. There is fun to be had in EyePet and the motion technology is admirable, but, as with the majority of PlayStation Eye games, it is little more than a short lasting sugary novelty.
  7. It's just a shame that while EyePet has clearly been designed to stretch the PlayStation Eye hardware, it never tests the boundaries of the virtual life genre with the same vigour.

    This has captivated my children for the past week, and even the wife who has a strong aversion to games has participated. The games are well This has captivated my children for the past week, and even the wife who has a strong aversion to games has participated. The games are well thought out, with clear instructions; although the magic eye card can be iffy at times. As a glimpse of what the future may hold I strongly recommend this title. Expand
