EyeToy: Groove is the second game to hit the US that uses Sony's EyeToy peripheral for the PlayStation 2--a peripheral that projects a mirror image of the player on the screen, allowing the player to interact with graphical elements that the game...

Just when you thought you couldn't possibly look sillier than you do washing windows and heading soccer balls with the EyeToy, Sony proudly presents EyeToy: Groove ? the bane of White Boys without Rhythm such as myself.

EyeToy: Groove is a great social game but I had a hard time working up the desire to pull it out for single player action. A large portion of the undeniable fun comes playing it with friends. It is one of the few games that, at the end of a session,...

Sony has a massive hit on its hands with the Eye Toy, the USB camera peripheral that uses motion sensors to have players directly interact and be in the game. The problem is that there aren't a lot of games that support the peripheral. That's where...

It's for the Eye Toy ; Ability to chorepgraph own routines

Not nearly enough songs ; Feels like it should have been included in the original Eye Toy Package

Eye Toy: Groove is to dancing what Twister is to yoga – don’t fool yourself. That said, if you have an Eye Toy and like rhythm games, then this won’t be a bad purchase. Do not, however pick up an Eye Toy specifically for this game.

If you like to dance and want a great game for a party with people who don�t mind looking a little silly, EyeToy Groove is probably just up your alley.

So is this a game you�ll want to own? If you consider yourself a hardcore gamer � probably not. One of my gaming buds went so far as to say these rhythm entertainment packages aren�t games at all. I would not go that far. There is a score and a...

Sony's EyeToy peripheral for the PlayStation 2 is about to show rhythm action fans a whole new perspective on their favorite genre. As you may or may not know, the EyeToy is a small USB camera that plugs into your PS2 and sits atop your television set,...

If you've got a group of people around and you're up for some laughs (and mild to moderate cardio) then Groove may very well prove to be an amusing diversion, but playing by yourself it's difficult to be properly motivated. Overall, EyeToy: Groove is...

This second EyeToy title solidifies the USB video camera as the life of the party. Just don't expect as much fun doing the Billy Idol (dancing with yourself).

Great multiplayer options; can feel like you're really dancing

Light on solo options; cheesy song list; potential size problems

"Shake what your mamma gave you," with Eye Toy: Groove on the PS2.

EyeToy: Groove could have easily turned out to be nothing more than a "gimmick" game, but it actually turns out to be a very solid, playable game that stands above the vast majority of the games in the rhythm and dance genre. If you enjoy any of the...

It was only a little while ago that Sony had released the most innovative addition to the PS2 with the Eye Toy. A little black camera that put you

So is the latest Eye Toy title enough to want you to get your Groove on? Well when it all comes down to it, if you are looking for a party title, to entertain your friends, then you should think about picking this one up. If you already own DDR or...

EyeToy Groove - Playstation 2 (PS2) Review - The Armchair Empire

 

I'm a huge fan of the Eye Toy peripheral for the PS2. I loved the mini-games included with the first release, Eye Toy: Play, and I have enjoyed the tech demos released by Sony and others over the past few months. The only...

EyeToy: Groove is a PlayStation 2 dancing game, different from any that came before it in at least one important way. Unlike genre-founding titles such as Konami's Dance Dance Revolution or rhythm-shooter hybrids such as Amplitude or Rez, Groove doesn't u
