The novelty should have worn off EyeToy games. The device has been around a few years now and we should be over the thrill of seeing ourselves on TV, and the pleasure of flailing our arms around. We%26rsquo;re not, though, as it takes a cold heart to play games like Astro Zoo and not start giggling.
Just the sight of your face squished into a tiny space helmet was enough to set us off, but there are loads of moments in this collection of space-themed minigames - such as intergalactic sheep-shearing and space-squirrel patting - that strip you of your dignity and force you to enjoy yourself. Of course, just like most party games there%26rsquo;s no real substance to the gameplay, and many of the challenges are just repainted versions from previous EyeToy games, but for hour-long blasts this has the power to entertain anyone - from giddy eight-year-olds to wizened cynics. Just make sure you give yourself plenty of room and the right sort of play pals.
