The Getaway: Black Monday – Review

Well, the gameplay still sucks. 2003's The Getaway was an attempt to raise videogames to the level of interactive film. One of the main ways they attempted to do this was by removing all obvious signs of "gameness"—no health bars, no ammo counters, no maps. Players were (in theory), left with a seamless playable movie.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Nudity, Sexual Themes, Strong Languange

Eye Toy: Groove – Review

More than half a year has passed since EyeToy first hit store shelves. Continuing to wax poetic on the gimmicky-coolness of the camera itself would be unfair to people who might buy Groove on the strength of potential alone.

EyeToy: Play – Second Opinion

Chris is right in theory. The EyeToy and EyeToy: Play have the potential to be "the killer app that can draw people who have never played a videogame in their life before towards the PlayStation 2." But in practice, there are still some problems preventing both the peripheral and the game from becoming a revolution in the way we play games.

Game Description:  Move your body to be a Kung Fu Superstar, Dancing Diva, or even a Window Washing Maniac!

EyeToy: Play – Review

Like Karaoke Revoution and the Dance Dance Revolution franchise, EyeToy: Play is inclusive rather than exclusive. It encourages people of all ages to join in the fun rather than feel excluded from some odd club they have no interest in being a member of. More than Metal Gear Solid or Final Fantasy Whatever, EyeToy is the killer app that can draw people who have never played a videogame in their life before towards the PlayStation 2.

The Getaway – Review

Before I go any further with this review, I should mention that I am not suggesting the modern day gangster title The Getaway for the PlayStation 2 belongs in the same echelon of the aforementioned works. The Getaway is a big budgeted and highly ambitious release from Sony. However, it is also a severely flawed experience—or, to put it more bluntly, the gameplay sucks.

The Getaway

Game Description: In The Getaway, you're a reformed criminal who's been blackmailed into returning to his old ways—and he's going to do whatever it takes to stop it!
