Remember The Eye of Judgment? It was that PlayStation 3 title that used the EyeToy to look at a game board on which you played a card game and the cards you played appeared on screen like some sort of Battle Chess thing? Yeah, it's a little weird but it worked fairly well and I found it to be pretty enjoyable.
The Eye of Judgment Legends, the upcoming PSP edition of the game does away with all that extra, gimmicky stuff like the camera, cloth board and physical cards. It's a card game for your PSP. It has all the cards from the original game, plus an additional thirty new cards. Players will be able to duel and trade cards with each other, just like they were the real thing, except they'll be transmitted through the air instead of handed over.
I don't quite see how this will be successful. The game is decent, but it isn't anything great. Yeah, you'll be able to earn digital cards through play instead of having to buy them and that's pretty cool. Still, even when it had the cool gimmick of the camera, I had a hard time convincing people that it was worth a look at.
