The Wii, and even the most avid Nintendo fanboy will probably testify to this, has a catalogue that is 70+ % crap shovelware, or rather games that have been rushed in and out of development to make a quick buck on an upwardly mobile trend. The Xbox 360 has less, mainly due to its more safe and conventional stylings, but the odd hardware release will still see a plethora of third-party poo being flung around. The LIVE Vision Camera, the 360's answer to Sony's Eye Toy, and You're In The Movies are the shifty looking culprits in question here.
You might wonder why we've stuck this one up. Well, look at it. It's a full game with 1000 Gamerpoints to be achieved going for less than the price of a London pint. There are Marks and Spencer sandwiches that cost more than this. You'll be making a saving too, with the nearest competitor more than £2 away (Gamestation - £4.98).
I could lie and tell you that this game is great, but I wouldn't be able to keep a straight face whilst typing. You basically have to fulfil a whole bunch of motion sensitive mini games to create a trailer for a B-movie in which you are the star such as steering a car to make a getaway, or miming running away from a whirlwind, or swimming whilst being chased by a shark. And it all requires the LIVE Vision camera, which isn't included with this deal.
However, if you do already have a camera, and you want some easy Achievement Points (and I know that there are some people out there who will occasionally buy a cheap game to boost their Gamerscore), then this is a no brainer. In fact, crack open a bottle of wine or a case of beer and invite some friends round, and this game actually becomes moderately passable and the pretty decent Director Mode will allow for some amateur video production that'll keep you laughing long after the hangover has gone. But basically, like most Adam Sandler movies, or anything starring the Wayans brothers, this is something best served when smashed. Unless you have a Wii. Or Rock Band.
Still, think of all those delicious Gamerpoints for under £3...
