Title: EyeToy Groove
Platform: Sony PlayStation 2
Condition: Good, Complete, Black DVD case
EYE TOY: GROOVE is the successor to EYE TOY: Play, Sony’s first Eye Toy game for the PS2. The Eye Toy, for players unfamiliar with it, is a camera that connects to the PS2 and projects a mirror image of the player on the screen. It recognizes hand and body movements, turning the player’s body into the controller. In single-player mode, dots appear and move toward one of six these circles on the screen as music plays. The goal is to move your hand over the circle as the dot moves over it. Timing is everything, of course: getting the dot and circle lined up exactly scores you bonus points. As levels progress, the game throws in extra challenges. Dots with trails behind them make you shake your hand over the circle for a few extra seconds. The circles can also change into arrows for your hands to follow. A few times per round, the game will move into pose mode, asking players to strike the indicated pose to score points. In addition to the single-player game, EYE TOY: GROOVE includes a multiplayer mode for up to four people and a custom mode where players can create their own moves. In multiplayer mode, players can either challenge each other or work together to clear the dots. With these different modes, EYE TOY: GROOVE is a great party game. Eye Toy fanatics will enjoy the new challenges in Groove, and newcomers can see what the Eye Toy is all about.
