Excerpt: Jak & Daxter, Sly Raccoon and Ratchet & Clank are three games series’ that helped define the PlayStation brand, beginning back on the PS2. But sometimes famous characters are undeservedly placed into games that are just not on the same level as the titles that made them famous, PlayStation Move Heroes is one such release. The story is basically an excuse as to why these six PlayStation heroes are now in the same universe as one another.
Excerpt: PlayStation Move is a nifty and supremely sensitive motion-sensing system, and it can be immensely effective depending on the game and situation. However, when a game is designed specifically for the motion-based mechanic and falls short in terms of overall control and substance, we’re once again reminded of Move’s relative youth.
Even Sony’s Dream Team Can’t Overcome Heroes’ Lack Of Substance
22 March 2011
Conclusion: Concept: Combine three of Sony’s classic duos into a collection of Move-fueled minigames
Graphics: The protagonists and environments look good, but most of the enemies are simplistic
Sound: Aside from the inclusion of the original voice actors for the characters, nothing stands out
Playability: Move controls perform admirably, though there are occasional aiming and camera issues with some events
Entertainment: Most players will tire of Heroes’ repetitive formula before...
Excerpt: For a long time there, Sony didn’t really have the big names to launch a console. While Nintendo has a whole stable of mascots to flagship each of their consoles, and Sega had Sonic, for a long time Sony was mascotless other than the third-party Crash Bandicoot. Then with the PS2, Sony became mascot crazy, bringing new beloved characters and faces to that console, the PS3 and PSP.
Excerpt: It seems that both the Kinect and the Move peripherals I purchase to keep on top of what’s going on in the gaming scene have spent far more time gathering dust that being used. Like the Wii, the novelty quickly wears off, and boils down to a wait for decent, innovative titles that make use of these peripherals. I’d like to say that Move Heroes is one such title. So I will. Even though it really fails to check the “innovative” box.
Excerpt: Sly Cooper, Jak & Daxter, and Ratchet & Clank, these are all good games in their own respect. PlayStation Move Heroes brings all three franchises together into one collection of mini-games intended to show off Sony’s Move controller. Does the sum of the parts measure up to the source material? Unfortunately not. I like the fact this game makes no attempts to be anything other than what it is.
Conclusion: Over de hele lijn is deze Playstation Move Heroes qua content veel te licht. We betreuren het dan ook dat Sony dergelijke mascottes misbruikt en verneukt in een collectie van ordinaire minigames. Deze game is een aanschaf dan ook niet waard. Enkel voor zij die diehard fans zijn van deze PS2-platform personages zullen wat plezier hebben met deze game.
