You're In The Movies (inc. LIVE Vision Camera) £9.99 @ Argos [Xbox 360 Games]

Ever fancied seeing yourself up on the silver screen along with the rest of your family, jumping around like a kangaroo that's just sat on a pin, striking ridiculous poses and generally making a tit of oneself? Well if you have, then this might just be the game for you, a self-styled 'family' title to show off Microsoft's little camera attachment for the Xbox, which comes included with this deal.

Unfortunately, you can't plug an iPhone camera into your Xbox, so if you do want to hook up your MicroMachine with a visual add-on then this might well be your best bet. You can currently pick up both the game and the camera together for just £9.99 at Argos, saving you a couple of quid on the nearest comeptitors, Amazon and Play - both at £11.99.

I'm pretty sure that by telling you this game isn't exactly a classic I haven't revealed anything that you couldn't have already worked out yourselves. But it's quite a fun little party piece, provided you've spent an hour or so beforehand working through the first couple of movies to unlock all of the content.

The game's premise is pretty simple: fulfil little motion capture mini-games to make a virtual trailer for a movie. You might end up flapping your arms manically to escape a tornado or steering a car as you chase down a criminal, although the mini-games and trailers are somewhat unrelated and the green screen final cut is often completely different to what you thought you were doing earlier. It's all very confusing and not helped much by lengthy setup times and dodgy hardware. Unlike the upcoming Natal, there's no way that the LIVE Vision Camera will follow enough movement to accurately depict swimming let alone help you groom a small boy named Milo.

I'm being a little harsh, to be honest there is some fun to be had here. Aside from the general mini-game japery, there's quite an entertaining Director Mode that basically allows you to splice videos together and record audio via a headset. A little bit of imagination can lead to some pretty funny results that the game will let you upload to LIVE and share online should you wish. You probably won't be able to see any of them though, as the camera experiences random little patches of faultiness - triggered often by the slightest change on the room's light.

That said, if you wanted to pick up a LIVE Vision Camera pretty cheaply to send pics of you mooning to your mates across LIVE then this might be the deal for you. The game also gives you some pretty easy Achievements, if you can leave the disc intact long enough to get them, that is.
