The basic idea of this Live Vision game is brilliant %26ndash; set up a camera, play some EyeToy-style minigames that require different movements and chuck in some silly expressions and faces. Then, once the round is over, sit back and watch You%26rsquo;re in the Movies play back your actions in a series of B-Movie style film trailers.
It works too %26ndash; and it%26rsquo;s a brilliant bit of fun for an hour or two. There are downsides however. It can take a little while to set up and, unless you film yourself perfectly, it all comes out a bit glitchy. And as an actual %26lsquo;game%26rsquo;, some elements are a little broken, like an unbalanced scoring system that makes winning and losing arbitrary.
The sort of thing you%26rsquo;ll bring out once in a while when mates are round. No harm in that %26ndash; even if as a game it doesn%26rsquo;t really work.
