Games Played 12/06/2008


Sega Superstars (2004)
Developer: Sonic Team
Platform: PlayStation 2
Purchase Date: 2004

Two million times better than Nights: Journey of Dreams on the Nintendo Wii.

It's too bad that the EyeToy didn't get a lot of support during its run on the PlayStation 2. It looks like things might turn out to be the same for the PlayStation 3's Eye camera. Sega Superstars is the most fun EyeToy game released on the PS2 - it helps that the mini-games found here are inspired by classic Sega titles ranging from Sonic the Hedgehog to Virtua Fighter. Because Sonic Team didn't have the chance to over-embellish the mini games with nonsensical gameplay hybrid, everything works because these games stick to the basics and they capture the true essence of the original titles they represent. I had to hook up the EyeToy to play this on my PS3 - Sony really need to release a patch to allow the PS Eye to become backward compatible.

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
