EyeToy Play & Camera is a compendium of 12 games with a USB camera, which places you at the centre of a unique experience. By linking the PlayStation 2 to the camera, you'll feature live on screen within the EyeToy Play & Camera games, manipulating and physically interacting with the games' characters and environments. Games include:
- Boogie Down: repeat dance moves in time with Qt. The more accurate your timing, the more points will be awarded
- Kung Foo: use any technique you know as you take on a relentless wave of martial art opponents
- Ghost Catcher: spot the ghosts as they appear from the graveyard and try to pop them before they escape off the top of the screen
- Keep Ups: stop the ball from falling off the bottom of the screen by keeping it up in the air using your head
Ever wanted to actually be in a video game? No? Well, you will after playing with the EyeToy, the most original and fun video game accessory for years. The EyeToy is a WebCam-type thing that comes with a collection of 12 mini-games called EyeToy: Play. It sits on top of, or beneath, your TV and plugs into the USB port of your PS2. Once it's turned on it projects a live image of your room and whoever is standing around in it onto one of the aforementioned 12 games. But that's not the half of it. Once the chosen player has positioned themselves onscreen and the selected game has begun, what's happening on-screen is controlled by their body movements--the joypad isn't involved at all.
So, for example, in Kung Foo you have to swat away hordes of ninjas with your hands as they come flying at you from the sides of the screen. In UFO Juggler you have to help spaceships take off by spinning them at just the right speed. Dancing game Boogie Down tests your hand-waving rather than foot-shuffling skills. A few of the games are slightly more complicated, such as Rocket Rumble--just like FantaVision, except you must set off fireworks in sequence by touching them and hitting a detonator onscreen.
EyeToy is tedium personified if you're playing on your own, but get just a couple of mates together and it's easily the best party game ever made. --David JenkinsSee all Product description
Top customer reviews
The Eyetoy is highly original, hugely imaginative and with a great, easy to use interface. What's a little spooky is the way you control the whole thing by passing your hands through the air. No keyboard, mouse, or joypad required. In fact no physical contact at all. This is the stuff of science fiction!
Other reviewers will detail the games but what many have missed is the range of interactive bits. For example you can have a virtual aquarium on your TV, nicely animated. Nothing new there until you approach your TV and notice your reflection. What you then realise is that you can "prod" the fish and they will dart out the way. This also applies to bursting bubbles, brushing spiders from a web that seems to cover your body (slightly disconcerting), and loads of other activities. Perfect to confuse your guests at a party!
So apologies to my children as their Christmas present is going to be rather “used” by December 25th!
And if you don't want to play one of the minigames, there's a playroom feature that allows you to manipulate the video feed in a variety of ways (whether your image is surrounded by killer bees, standing in a snow storm, de-materializing or twitching spookily - amongst others options).
The games really come into their own when playing multi-player and this has to be the only game in the world that's as fun to watch when your friends and family play as it is to play yourself. Witness friends flaily madly in mid-air! Watch everyone try to kung-fu or head an apparently invisible ball!!
This is bound to be a hit with young and old alike, due to it's irradicating the need of interface between the player and PlayStation. No need for a controller any more. You just need your hands! It will be a hit at Christmas for the family and will also undoubtedly be popular with the after pub crowd too. Hardcore gamers may not like it's simplicity, but you'd have to be really miserable not to crack a smile at this!
The games are brilliant. There's fighting games, dancing games, even window washing games!
All you do is plug it in, load the disc and your picture appears on the TV. You move your arms to press buttons, punch baddies, complete dance moves and much more. There's absolutely no controls needed whatsoever!
I recommend you buy this because it will keep kids quiet for hours on end, and also its fun for adults. Don't let the neighbours catch you though!

You place the camera on top of your T.V. and you move your body to play.
Eye toy has 12 mini-games. Here are a few Kung Foo, boxing chump, wishi washi, keep ups and many more. For example Keep ups, a football falls down and you have to keep it up with your head or any other part of your body. Or kung foo use kung foo to knock the little ninjas away. All the games are great fun.
Eye toy has A Playroom where you choose loads of cool effects to happen on your body and video messaging.
Also this game is great excercise, a couple of rounds in boxing chump on hard mode will wear you out.
This game is excellent and especially fun if you have a party or some friends round, or even your mum and dad.
