Invizimals turns your PSP into a device that lets you discover and capture the monsters living in the world around you. The excitement of capturing hidden monsters and uncovering their secret world is literally in your hands. Bundle includes: Invizimals UMD Game PSP camera
From the manufacturer
InviZimals is an augmented reality game for PlayStation Portable (PSP) that utilizes the included PSP camera to project a game world filled with collectable miniature monsters against the background of the everyday reality of players. The result is the revealing of over 100 different kinds of monsters that can be captured and primed for battle in both campaign and wireless multiplayer modes. Additional features include the ability to use the PSP camera to make movies, take pictures and possibly be used with additional games in the future.
Monsters in Plain View in InviZimals
InviZimals turns your PSP into a device that lets you enter and explore an invisible world of mini monsters living within the augmented reality of the gameworld. This is made possible by way of the PSP camera included with the game. Attaching to the the PSP via the mini USB connection along the upper edge of the handheld, the camera utilizes the real life space and events of the player's everyday world as the backdrop for the events of the game which are projected over this and made visible to the player via the PSP screen.
The gameworld of InviZimals is framed by a story revolving around a fictional PSP research and development team, who after stumbling upon a world filled with miniature monsters, invites players to learn the correct techniques for capturing these monsters. Once captured they must be raised, trained and leveled up for use in battles. Battles occur both within the game's single player campaign, as well as through the games wireless multiplayer option that allows players take on friends, both over ad-hoc and infrastructure connections, in head-to-head conflicts. Additional features built into InviZimals include: Over 100 types of InviZimals, a range of different overarching in-game power elements to discover, a variety of power-ups and more.
Key Game Features
- Use the PSP camera to hunt down invisible monsters and capture them
- Pit your InviZimals against each other or enjoy multiplayer fights with friends
- Learn new attacks, power-ups and evolve your InviZimals
- Trade InviZimals and magical items with your friends or online

The PSP Camera
In addition to being the conduit through which the InviZimals gameworld comes to life, the PSP camera is also a valuable peripheral in and of itself. The camera is rated at 0.3 megapixels, taking photographs at a maximum resolution of 640x480 and video at up to 480x272 at 30 fps. It has a wide-angle F2.8 lens that swivels to point at the user or away, has standard and macro recording modes and a microphone feature compatible with some software voice recording releases. This makes it perfect for taking pictures, making short movies and perhaps additional game and video uses.

Anyways the camera isn't as good as my proper sole purpose camera but for the price of $20 + a game it was quite the deal.
Im going to split this review into two, one for the camera and one for the game.
Quality - Above Average 7/10 has digital editing features such as sketch and distort etc.., its kinda grainy at times, but when the focus kicks in, it actually looks pretty fair, the imagine quality could be something compared to a cheap camera for a PC, meaning its okay but not the best out there. it is above average though that is for sure.
Design - Slick 9/10 not bulky or ugly at all, Sony did well with this one.
Features - Solid 9/10 it can easily replace your average ordinary digital camera if you have a big enough memory stick, I.E 2,4,6,8,10,12,14, or 16GB, though even 2-4GB should be more then enough space to get some decent photos and videos out of.
Sound (VIDEO MODE ONLY) Good - 7.5/10 Sounds a bit to soft to me, however that can easily be edited later on when transfering over to a PC, Laptop, or PS3. its good, not bad or great, just good.
Extras - Surprisingly Okay 9/10 It has its own menu mode, like Picture, Video and Music Modes with a good amount of editing and tweaking features, it could have used more, but i wasn't expecting some of these added options, i was only expecting basic options at best, these were above basic for sure. However its lacking Hi-Res options such as 1080 x 720 or above, the highest res is has is 680 x something, which isn't bad but not good, though its a gaming device first, which i understand, and a secondary device last, so for what it is, its good.
Overall - Ultimately... 9.2/10 This bundle alone is worth it for the camera, since my local gamestop, wal-mart etc.. seem to be selling them solo for a high price $50 or higher for the camera alone, and online its worth up to $400 for the camera! that's insane, im glad i found it bundled here and with a game no less.
Plot - Pokemon...in Real life? 7/10 That's pretty much it in a not shell, it sounds stupid at first, nor did i care about it when ordering it since my main ambition was to get the camera, however the game isn't bad at all, infact it surprised me and reminds me somewhat of the good ol' pokemon days, however it has elements that make it completely original on its own, for example, i've never played a pokemon game where... there running around in your house as aura-energied freaks!
For what it is, it does it good, Point your camera at certain colors, like Red, Blue, Purple, Green, Yellow and so on and you get to face a new freaky thing or whatever lol, its funny if anything.
Gameplay - Basic but mildly entertaining... 7.5/10 It's basic Japanese Old School RPG goodness, i no longer care for this type of gameplay, however it was entertaining non-the-less, besides it offers new innovative elements like capturing creatures in im assuming over 100 ways, that is impressive, i don't care what anyone says, thats alot of animation.
Graphics - Pretty good actually! 7.5/10 this looks on par with some current PC games and even quite alot of Wii games, im actually shocked at how well the creatures textures are for a PSP game, i guess it must have something to do with no rendering of the backround, since the backround is being rendered by.. reality is self! Oooooooooohh!
Sound - Good music, funny acting. 9/10 you can tell this games target audience is between the ages of 5 years old to maybe 12 years old. it's very child friendly, and unlike most games where the characters are rendered with the games engine, they have actual actors in this game, so far i've come across, 1 pretty boy japanese geek dude, 1 japanese troll gamer who lives with his mom, 1 old british dude who acts like that one guy from the first Jurassic park, 1 indian girl, and some trolls in suits, i haven't gotten far into the story yet, but i find it to be extremely funny and will continue it if only for the horrible acting.
The music is also very good to, very relaxing and surreal for some reason in some tracks. theres also some epic Choir music going on in here that can rival the Final Fantasy or World of Warcraft series.. what the heck right?
Replay Value - Depends really... 7/10 it would depend on the person, im 20 years old and i find this 12 year olds game to be somewhat amusing, if only for the innovative design it has. i know for sure my cousins, sisters, and little bother would fall in love with this kinda game though, its hip and new and would drive them crazy so if your a big brother or sister / Mom or Dad, get this game for them (With the camera if you can, otherwise good luck trying to get the ridiculously priced PSP cameras elsewhere at a price below $50) because chances are it'll keep kids occupied for hours and hours, because you can even interact with the animals you catch, whats most awesome them virtual pets you don't have to feed or clean after! oh and you can smack around other animals to!
Overall - 7.9 This is impressive to me, i was expecting a total garbage game, but now this truly was a bonus to the Camera. This is proof sony can be innovative to, just like with Folklore for the PS3 and its amazing Sixaxis control, and Flower for PS3 as well, this doesn't rank as high as those games, but boy does it rank high up there.
Not that I can play it anyways without the psp camera that was listed in the ad.
The bill states "game only!" Yet my Amazon prime order has the companies advertisement as listed "game and psp camera!"
Once i started the game, I got hooked. With the silly story line and having to find colors around my house to capture different creatures. The fighting is a fun too. you get to interact with your PSP and environment.
The twist is that instead of running all over a world map with a sprite representing your character, YOU run around your house with the PSP with camera attached looking for invisible monsters (invizimals) in what can sometimes feel a little like a Ghostbuster looking for ghosts with a PKE Meter. While users will not get a significant amount of exercise, it is a welcome change from sitting on a sofa and button mashing. Instead of "throwing" a pokeball, players slap a capture card down on the surface the invizimal is "detected" on.
The minigames for capturing found monsters are easy enough, yet fun.
Battles involve choosing/timing an attach and collecting energy spheres between moves.
The included camera provides a new type of gameplay just emerging known as "augmented reality." While only time will tell how successful this type of game is, I would encourage everyone to give it a try.
First of all, they must remember that you pay $20 for a game, so do not expect a high quality camera (high resolution, color range ...) but at the end of the day what matters is work to play.
As for the game, note that it is very funny, and some battles may require some strategy which could be interesting, on the other hand, some effects are impressive, but only if you are working in top condition which is very difficult.
In addition, some mini-games do not always work correctly, and the graphics and color scheme are low.
In short, it's a fun game for children and adolescents, and only $20
Note: Verify that the PSP firmware version is compatible with the camera as well, please make sure that the USB port (and the holes in the sides) of the PSP are clean, otherwise it might not work.
