Excerpt: Players take on the role of Finn in Sorcery on the Playstation 3. He is taunted by a talking cat Erline, which is technically not a cat - but you can learn some things for yourself. He is impatient and lacking discipline. Because of this he unleashes the Nightmare Queen on this fantasy world. He is also very disobedient. Because of his character defects he has to do things the hard way.
Excerpt: If there’s anything that Sony’s PlayStation Move is capable of mimicking, it’s the magic wand. Move has a shiny light on the top and is long in design, making it feel very much like casting a wand. It goes without saying then, that a game that allows you to chuck magic spells is going to fit Move very well.
Conclusion: All in all, Sorcery is a gem of a title. It does a nice job at showing off the Move and what the future of the Move could be. Unfortunately, the timing on this title is a little off, considering that it took a very long time to get to the shelf. This game probably would have done much better had it come out at launch; however, this shouldn’t discourage you from giving this game a chance.
Excerpt: We can easily see why the PlayStation Move isn’t quite as popular as the Kinect. Though there are a fair amount of games that take advantage of it, the limited camera range can make it a burden for some players, and the thought of holding a weird glowy wand, rather than just jumping around, can be kind of a pain.
Excerpt: The Playstation Move has been available for a year and a half now, and one of the earlier titles we got to see demonstrated on Sony's motion control platform for the PS3 was Sorcery . Unfortunately, some delays have put this game's launch date well past the initial estimation, but it seems like developers The Workshop and Sony's Santa Monica Studio have made excellent use of that extra time, because what originally looked like a tech-demo gimmick has grown into a...
Excerpt: Sorcery is one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences I’ve had for a long time. While it only takes four or five hours to see everything this title has to offer, the game’s narrative moves along at a fairly brisk pace and does a great job of making you feel completely absorbed in the unfolding events.
Excerpt: First announced at E3 2010, Sorcery enchanted us with the allure of casting spells and brewing potions through the use of motion controls. It’s easily the most enticing concept we’ve encountered, and one with the potential to help the Move crack in a big way. Has Sony finally found the magic, or is this another black mark on Move’s bumpy history? In Sorcery, you play the role of a young apprentice named Finn who is studying under the tutelage of master sorcerer Dash.
