Yoostar2 brings the magic and fun of Hollywood to your living room. Using your Kinect™ for Xbox 360® or your Playstation®Eye, you can insert yourself into famous movie and TV scenes, starring alongside or in place of your favourite actors. Perform the lines as written, or improvise and deliver your own improvisation. After you’ve finished, Yoostar scores your performance, and you can upload your scene to Yoostar2’s in-game social portal, Yoostar.com and Facebook. Yoostar2 is a fantastic party game that will appeal to both hardcore and casual players.

The Yoostar2 library includes: current hits like The Hangover, Tropic Thunder, Meet The Fockers, 300 and Kick Ass, modern classics like “The Godfather” and “Rocky”, all-time classics like “Casablanca,” and “The Wizard of Oz”, popular TV shows such as “ Star Trek”, “ Mad Men”, and “CSI”.
Over 1,200 actors are already on board with Yoostar, including superstars like Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Gerard Butler, Cameron Diaz, Arnold Schwarzenegger and many more.
Players’ performances are scored based on accuracy and overall performance, but the game also allows for improvised performances that draw on players’ creativity.

Perform well, and open up additional areas on the road to Hollywood. Quick Play Mode – play through scenes quickly, whether on your own or with a group.
