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

My Move has been collecting dust for a long time now (Why no online Table Tennis Sony WHY!!!) Will pick this up once it hits the bargain bins.

About the game


What's up?
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 @Moonwalker: It's shitty that it says coming soon but from what I heard it's late 2017. Luke Cage in September, Iron Fist Jan 2017, Defenders summer. Why coming soon?!? Monsters... (24 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Season 3 of Daredevil coming soon it says, can it possibly be this year? (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX People should not group with people 20 skill ranks below them in ranked OW. Carry your friends in quick-play, don't make them a liability in ranked. (3 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @droezelke: It's mostly because of the over saturation with the super movies lately. After BvS, had to take a break from the genre (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: It's not a real Uncharted to me. There is no blockbuster flow. The semi-sandboxes fails as exploring is pretty useless. It messes with the pacing. U2 is still the best one. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree with Tiz. Was half+way through, put it aside to play another game, but haven't felt the need to go back. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker and Sam are great. Naughty Dog just knows so damn well how to make interesting and likeable characters. And the attention to the smallest of details is lovely. (4 Hours ago)
