“I'm On The Telly!”

ConsMoving objects can affect gameplay.

I have chosen to write this review on the Sony Playstation 2 accessory - The Eye Toy Camera as I think it is a fantastic and fun accessory to have so everyone should know about it and have a go themselves! This review is (as the category says!) about the Eye Toy Camera itself, not a specific game...

“I toy with Eye Toy.”

published 19/06/2004

ProTakes gaming to the next dimension

ConsYou'll feel knackered playing it !!

The Sony Playstation 2 is an excellent piece of gaming hardware, but is occasionally criticised of not being interactive enough, and causing kids (and adults) to spend hours sitting in front of a TV screen, and not getting enough exercise ! The "Eye Toy" is Sony's answer to these critisms - it is...

EyeToy was launched late in 2003 as the new gadget for the PS2. Basically, the EyeToy is a small camera type object that you sit on top of your TV... it can see you... it watches you, and reacts to your movements... it's through this gadget that you control the EyeToy games. Forget your joypad...

ProGreat all round family fun

ConsSore arms and out of breath.

This is based on the Eye Toy “Play” for the Playstation 2, there is another version of the eye toy available called “groove” I have not played that yet, but believe you can buy the disc without having to buy another eye toy. Way back in the good old days of the early consoles (Nintendo Sega etc)...

ConsSurprisingly hard work to play

I know - 'cos I've done it! Several months from the original purchase of my EyeToy and the novelty has worn off just a little, but now I'm using it as a web cam on my PC! All you need are the correct drivers, the ones I'm using are for a dlink DSB-C310 (select version 1.10, revision B1) - you...

EYE WAS TOO PROUD I used to laugh at people on those rhythm-step games at the arcades. “Fools!” I’d mutter to myself, as they shimmied manically from pad to pad, like gerbils on a halogen hob (Note to RSPCA: - I would never try this). Oblivious to their ever-increasing audience, they would...

This is my new favourite toy, which I treat myself to in the new year. I bought the EyeToy™ and the game for £35 from Game, whilst I was visiting family in Dorset. It was brilliant value for money, and keeps me fit. I’ve lost half a stone since playing EyeToy Play™, and the good thing is, it is...

We brought this two years ago for the children from woolworts when it was on special offer for 19.99, original price at the time was 39.99 so i got quite a saving. An eye toy is basically a little camera, very similar looking to a web cam which connects to the playstation 2 and your tv to allow...

I first heard about Eye Toy through one of my brothers, his mate at work had been playing it and I thought it sounded a great idea. However, I didn’t want to rush out and spend money on it immediately, so I went to my local Blockbuster and managed to rent it over two nights for only £3.75. What...

ProQuick fun that will keep you fit.

ConsNot so great once the novelty wears off.

Virtual Reality – it’s a daunting prospect isn’t it? Some may even call it frightening. To actually fully experience a game by plunging your mind into a virtual world sounds incredible, but also the stuff of sci-fi films or the distant future. Until now. Okay, so it’s still a long way off and...

“Feast your eye on this!”

ProInnovative game that makes you the main character

ConsAddictive, makes your arms hurt like hell!

WOW! Where do I start?? I first noticed this little gizmo/game when shopping for a new stereo at Curry's. It caught my eye because three staff were all stood in front of a huge television screen flapping their arms wildly about in thin air, and I remember thinking 'sheeesh, too busy playing silly...

ConsYou could lose track of time

My first experience of the PS2 Eye Toy was a few weeks before Christmas when my stepdaughter (Louise) had a sleep over at our house. I had heard of these before and was intrigued to see what all the fuss was about. All I can say is that it kept the kids quiet all evening. To the point that the...
