This game is dis- dis- disgraceful, disgusting, and despicable!
Genre: Mini-game Collection
Platforms: PlayStation 2
Release Date: August 24, 2007
Developer: Broadsword Interactive
Publisher: Blast! Entertainment
Franchise: Thomas and Friends


Thomas and Friends: A Day at the Races is a video game developed by Broadsword Interactive and published by Blast! Entertainment, it was released only in Europe.

Plot

Join Thomas and his friends in ten all-new, fun, and exciting mini-games. Use the Eye Toy USB camera to put yourself in the game and control the action. Enjoy a brand new story, featuring Thomas, James, the Fat Controller, and all your other favorite Thomas the Tank Engine characters.

Why It Sucks

  1. The story is very generic, as it’s just Thomas and his Friends being told to prepare for a carnival.
  2. Very poor Eye Toy motion controls.
  3. Boring minigames, mostly consisting of dragging things and putting them where they are.
  4. Frustrating difficulty, due to the motion controls being hard to control.
  5. The graphics look pretty lifeless and dull.
  6. Many mistakes used in TV footage. In one scene the footage of James is mirrored.
  7. Rushed to market with a ton of incomplete content in the game!

Redeeming Qualities

  1. If Broadsword Interactive can be credited for one thing, they made one of the only Blast! Entertainment games that have something to do with the source material.
  2. It's one of the better third-party EyeToy titles, which is saying at least something.

Blast! Entertainment and BAM! Entertainment both have something in common: They both released shovelware titles.

At least BAM! Entertainment tried to be decent, Blast! Entertainment games look like they didn't even try.

Yeah. Some decent games like Dexter's Laboratory: Mandark's Lab, and a few others.
