Eye Toy Play Sports 

With support for up to 8 players, this is the latest offering for Sonyís Eyetoy gadget that like the other titles before it, offers fast gaming with the focus (get it? Focus?) being fun. 

This game however ups the ante with what I would consider being the most physical version of the title with players actually being able to jostle around on some games in real life in order to affect what is happening on the screen. All with the exception of the boxing which for some strange reason requires you to stand back to back and the camera will sort the rest out. 

There are a multitude of games on this puppy with the count appearing to go into triple digits so I will be amazed at those of you who think there is not much to do in the game. Spoiled for choice you are on this one and it should provide many hours of fun for young and old. 

I guess it will be worthwhile mentioning that this game is one that unlike some of the others in the series, is not that much fun on your own, it simply does not convey the sense of fun or the stupidity that you feel when battling it out amongst friends. Add to that if you like, you can get a snapshot of your own faces to put onto the onscreen contestants which actually donít look that bad and up the hilarity factor a great deal. 

The game handles the action pretty well onscreen considering its trying to track the movements of a group of people and make sense of them. There are moments when collision detection is slightly shaky, however for the most part itís a solid enough bit of fun. The title allows for 4 people at one time on the screen and then if you have a larger crowd over, the second bunch can just wait until you are done. 

A selection mode is the titles only downfall as with so many mini games to play, this would have been bliss for you to just choose the sports that you wanted to play as a group. Instead the game thinks it knows better than you and serves up the entertainment instead.  Iím not sure how much work it would have been to include this, but it would have been great to see so you could really brush up on the ones that you enjoy the most. 

This is a solid addition to the Eye Toy series and you can buy it with or without the Eye Toy itself in case you already own one. This is great stocking filler material at Christmas time for the whole family.
