Carnival Island

 

I didn't think I would be, but I have become quite the fan of the PlayStation Move. I have always been a proponent of playing video games with your kids. This is where Carnival Island comes in. Obviously designed to capitalize on the familiarity of...

Plenty of games ; Fun, especially in multiplayer

Integration of prizes and PlayStation Home unrealized ; Load screens ; At times it seems as if the PlayStation Move controls are intentionally misdirecting the player (just like at a real Midway)

What it boils down to is Carnival Island is fun and gets plenty right. This would have been a great title to launch alongside the PlayStation Move. It’s been a year, but now it looks as if there is finally beginning to be reason enough for families to...

Overall Carnival Island is something of a disappointment. Its position as a budget game does go some way to excusing the rather thin content within, but its biggest problem is that the content that it does have just isn’t very compelling or...

Carnival Island PS3 Review

 

Mini game collections are often hugely maligned but purchased avidly by a certain player. Ever since the inception of the Wii, we've had loads of mini game compilations, some of which were a lot of fun while the rest felt like half-hearted attempts. Of...

But Carnival Island is still a likeable enough casual game that once again shows the accuracy of Move, although perhaps not to the best of its abilities. True, the game does have its problems, but there’s plenty of content for its low RRP of £20, and...

I chose Carnival Island as it looked like a fun, easy-going time and the opposite of the violent games I have been playing too much of recently. It does have some gorgeous animated cut-scenes and the potential for some really fun games but it is mostly...

Nice graphics, cute concept

Bad programming, game is unfinished
