liked this spin on the Eyetoy technology where you use the USB camera to
compete in an extreme sports title of the future racing on hoverboards!
Using your body and not the controller, players need to find the fastest
lines through some crazy courses that simply look awesome. The title
graphically looks like a sort of hybrid betwen a cartoon and cyberpunk
though I am sure that not everyone is going to agree with that.
of the game is simply to win. That said however, this game is a real
development for the simple fact that despite the genre, this is the
first FULL game for the Eyetoy Camera as every other title, including
the Monkey Mania game has been a series of mini games, that whilst a lot
of fun sort of break up the continuity you would get with a normal game.
Antigrav has none of that, delivering a solid gameplay experience from
start to finish.
gamers will look at the high speed of the title and equate it possibly
to wipeout or something a bit closer, the SSX series of snowboarding
games, which I can tell you now that it is really nothing like.
One of the
things I liked about this game was the fact that there was not a crappy
video image of you the gamer showing up in the background. I know that
you have to see what you are doing in most of the other titles however
Antigrav shows a funky locator down the bottom right that displays what
your hands and head are doing at all times for easy reference.
tricks that you can do for those who are wondering and they can be
linked together for combo scores. Initially I found it a bit hard but
then it was dead easy. The main drawcard really is the racing pure and
simple, just trying to beat your opponent was a ton of fun!
the only real downer to the title is that there are so very few courses
for you to race on. About 5 in all, although they do have different
courses at each location, it does get a bit repetitive, especially when
you are like me and love these sorts of games and play them constantly.
Antigrav is by itself, an amazing game for Eyetoy, if you are buying it
simply because it is a board game, you would be better off getting SSX
(any of them). If you are buying this as it is an innovative title that
is a definite step forward for the Eyetoy then itís a title that I can
certainly recommend. Give it a try or a rent, I think you are going to
like this one.
