uDraw GameTablet with uDraw Studio Instant Artist
Best thing on the market! :D
I bought this game at first being skeptical as all men are of things that aren't call of duty or some other FPS. I bought it for my sister, as she had shown that she wanted it, for a christmas gift. As she opened it and the day progressed, she wanted to play it while i was playing CoD: MW3. Of course, i let her play it. I eneded up loving it the most out of anyone else and we ended up using it for about 8 to 10 hours. I would reccomend this to any MLG pro or anyone who loves gaming. This game is well created and has some real value. Hope I was of help. :D
Im a graphic designer so I bought this for my nephew with hopes to play with the U Draw myself. The controller itself works really well and I was actually surprised XBOX 360 is stepping into the world of art and design on a platform. The actual studio artist disc that comes with the U Draw is an entry level game. Its a mere introduction to what the controller can do artistically. It works like a kids version of Adobe Illustrator but falls short with some of the things it needed like a previous move button, in case you make a mistake while doing a random sketch or just doodling. Overall there is no limit to what the U Draw can do artistically, and if they make a more sophisticated program to accompany the U Draw this is a powerful tool for your XBOX. Good for anyone who enjoys art.
I tried it for Wii
I played the u-draw game tablet on my wii and it was like using a drawing tablet for a computer but on a gaming console. it came with an art studio game with vast amounts of different "mediums" and "canvases" you could use for your art . i also bought sponge-bob squiggle-pants. a game loaded with nano-games (great for groups) I'm very excited for the ones to come out for xbox and ps3 because the one for wii is good and all but it doesn't give a sharp image due to the standard cables. that's why i'm looking forward to having crystal clear images on the xbox!
First I would like to say that the image is AMAZING! definatly better than the one for wii. The U-draw tablet is very easy to use considering the set up for the tablet is just like the controler. (but with no triggers, bumpers or thumb-sticks. so no you cant play Halo or COD on it.) HOWEVER! the one thing I didn't like is that it the drawing pad is also touch sensitive so when my pinkie rests on the screen it thinks im trying to move the paper. I didn't understand why it was made like that if you have a stylus pen teatherd to the tablet? that was the only bug i found with it so far.... NOW I want everyone to make crazy bizzare arcade games for this....it really sucks when theres only one game for it!
Doesn't work with the newer Xboxes
As stated in the title, mine has not been able to connect to my 360 at all. The THQ site, such as it is, holds no information as to what I could try to fix this problem. Maybe it's not compatible with the new updated XBox Home with the Youtube and so forth? I dunno, but I'm beginning to see why I got such a great low price for the pad. I've sent some feedback asking for help at THQ's site, so I may need to revise this once I hear back. I might just have a defective one, who knows?
More than just a toy.
This is my first experience using a drawing tablet but I am no stranger to drawing and design. I have had my eye on the udraw for a few weeks now but always passed on buying it because I thought it was just a goofy toy. After seeing the potential for this device I must say that this is not just some toy, it is a decent, usable tool for creating art. The game that comes with the unit is a great way to jump in and start creating but make no mistake there is still a learning curve with the udraw tablet. At the current price it is completely worth buying even if you're just curious about finding your inner artist.
my boyfriend brought this for your 2 and a half year old as a xmas gift she loves it she fights with us ovewr the use of the 360 best thing ever perfect for lil ones
