A week ago I got my grubby hands on The Fight: Lights Out (regards to Trev & Tosh for hooking me up with a promo copy). With me being heavily into sports and somewhat liking UFC etc, I wanted to get involved in the sport without physically getting battered and bruised – so, what better way to do this than play a game of The Fight: Lights Out.

Today’s review will be a double-header featuring EyePet and Invizimals: Shadow Zone for the PSP. Both games incorporate the use of the official PSP camera attachment and are both augmented reality games.
Having a little experience on the PS3 Eye, I had some foreordained expectations that may not have been completely fair. I fully expected the camera to work as shown, however, I expected lag, lighting issues, blurry images…all of which I did not get. The camera was quick, precise and quite clear. Not one time did I have to move to the perfect lighting scenario or some large flat surface to get the games to function. With that said, the price, picture quality, and picture options are fairly large cons just for the PSP camera alone for general picture taking.
