Our videos of Sorcery

Our videos of Sorcery

You know us, we can't say we have really been convinced by motion gaming just yet. So when we got our copy of Sorcery, we confess we were a bit prejudiced. We thought it was going to be just another collection of awkward mini-games, or at best, a game designed for children. It turns out we were wrong. This game developed by The Workshop may not be a triple A title, but its nice graphics, endearing characters and humor makes it really pleasant to play. The controls are rather responsive, though it's not always easy to curve one's bolts, and they actually add to the overall experience. What's more, the game can even be a bit challenging in the highest difficulty settings. If you like fairy tales and own a PS Move, this is actually worth a shot considering its cheap price. Even more if you have kids at home.

as worthless as the harry potter kinect games. all could be done with buttons.

Kinda sad, as the tech demo had some potential.

Problem is, you are completely wrong. The game would be a lot less fun with a standard controller. And that's probably the first time I have had such an impression.

yhea, just spam those magic "shooter powers", so much fun to be had. Why not a turbo button... it is already auto-aim. Whats the point of "motion" controls if all there is to it, is to be done this way?

Not that i'm that interested in another crap fable game, and one on-rails to boot... but at least that has some potential in the way you craft the magic powers. i'll bet the concept in the end will all go to the shat like this one.

It is not completely auto aim, but to undertsand or give a relevant opinion, you'd have to actually have played the game. Guess it's the difference between you and me. ;p

Most games you play probably have the same "amount" of auto aim as Sorcery anyway. It sure helps a bit, which makes the game enjoyable (juste like any FPS or TPS on consoles between you and me) but it does not work if you don't aim in the right direction. But then again, I did spend 6 hours on the game myself.

gotta hate the blind hate by nostradamus, dude probably doesn't even have a PS3. You can't tell how a game plays by watching vids, this is something I learned a while ago....

something that happens a lot on formus these days (nos's mentality) just saying

Well, it's an actual, working game for a change. But i'm not all that interested. Kinda missed the harry potter train too by about a year... I'll rent it tho since i rent everything.

I think Sony were smart enough to realise that people weren't ready for their version on motion gaming but they didn't have much choice either. Excellent tech that they knew would still be a hard sell. Is this the last hope for Move or is there something else on the horizon
