Move Review Roundup

Posted on September 9, 2010

Sony’s new motion controller hits stores today. How does it perform? Here’s a handy list of our reviews for the peripheral’s launch titles, as well as the hardware itself.

Move Hardware Review: Motion Controls Evolved

“Despite some minor problems, the more we played with Move the more it
impressed us. The PlayStation Eye and motion controller are a killer
combination for accurate and highly responsive motion-based gameplay,
and we applaud Sony for getting the hardware right the first time. However, any excitement over the Move hardware must be weighed against the quality of the games that support it.”

Sports Champions Review: Outplaying Wii Sports In Every Way

“Sony didn’t help its cause to differentiate Move from the Wii by
selecting Sports Champions – a collection of sports-based minigames in
the same vein as Wii Sports – as the title to be included in the Move
bundle. But after playing Sports Champions extensively, I’m confident
that Sony made the right choice: No other title does as good of a job
showing off the exciting feats the new peripheral can accomplish.”

Tumble Review: Bringing Fun, Unique Challenges To Tower Building

“While its simplistic design gives Tumble the
appearance of a glossy Move tech demo, the variety of unique,
mind-bending challenges offered in this upcoming PSN title makes Tumble
one of the more desirable Move launch games to date, especially when a
friend joins in for local multiplayer.”

Start The Party Review: A Minigame Compilation That Will End Your Party

“If Start The Party put half the effort into coming up with some
additional creative and entertaining minigames as it does courting the
casual crowd with flashy graphics and annoying sound effects, than I
could recommend trying out this minigame collection in good conscience.
As it stands, the novelty of playing around with augmented reality will
quickly wear out under the weight of the game’s shallowness and
obnoxious demeanor.”

Kung Fu Rider Review: Less Fun Than A Kung Fu Kick To The Groin

“Whenever a gaming company launches new technology,
some titles will fail to take advantage of the new hardware. To put Kung Fu
Rider in this category would be exceedingly generous. This is a game about
riding office chairs, and through some reverse miracle, the developers actually
managed to make the game stupider than it sounds.”

Resident Evil 5: Move Edition Video Preview

“Sony is set to release the PlayStation Move on September 17, and some
gamers are wary that this family-friendly hardware will offer nothing
for the hardcore. Capcom has a plan, though. That plan is to release an
update for Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition on September 19, which will allow you to play the game with the Move and Navigation controllers. We booted up the 2009 hit and fired away.”
