I chose Carnival Island as it looked like a fun, easy-going time and the opposite of the violent games I have been playing too much of recently. It does have some gorgeous animated cut-scenes and the potential for some really fun games but it is mostly all spoiled by poor, inconsistent physics with the normally sound Move controller, and the fact that the game simply is not finished.

The Carnival Island of the title is split into four sections with two different game themes in each. Games such a coin tossing, bowling, ring-throwing, basketball etc. could have been used to great effect with the Move controller, and it's good enough to endure for a short while but you'll frequently be cursing the physics. The hub design is faulty as you cannot quit a game and return to hub or even the main menu. If you want to switch between story mode and party mode (or vice versa) you have to switch the game off and load it again. Some of the trophies are based on random chance instead of skill in which you will waste hours and hours trying to win them or they are just straight-up glitched. I often felt like smashing my Move controller against the wall.

This game is either not finished or the programmers were not smart enough to realize that their efforts fell way short of the mark.

A big disappointment.

This game - although at first glance seems childish after a while you realise how challenging it is!! It has excellent replay value with loads of different fun fair and fairground type games. Lots of trophies can be earned including a Platinum trophy but it won't be a walk in the park (excuse the pun!). You can clear the basic trophies quite easily by playing through and unlocking new parts of the fun fair as you complete challenges. To get the Platinum you will need to complete ALL the challenges which will require a lot of skill and some luck! Overall this is a very well made game and great fun - you are bound to find one game you like. Excellent use of the Move controller. I would recommend this.

A game that shows off the move quite well, and gets bigger and better the more you play. Kids love it Grandkids love it and to be honest Grandad likes it too

Bought as I wanted something "simple" for the kids to play that can be stopped quickly (i.e. not one of those you have to keep playing until you can save and that keep you on the PS3 for a very long time, as they already have some of those).
This is just something you can play quickly and easily and without having to concentrate too much. I'd say a bit of "old fashion" video game fun.
Arrived in 6 days, it was factory sealed and correctly packed. Price is good too.
