Excerpt: Sports Champions 2 is an improvement over the original game. With that said the franchise still has a few issues. This time we have Skiing, Tennis, Boxing, Bowling, Golf, and Archery to play in this PS3 Move home console video game. Archery is the only “sport” that makes a return in Sports Champions 2. Although Table Tennis and Tennis are pretty close.
Conclusion: The game is technically proficient but unfortunately Sports Champions 2 fails to offer the unique and interesting events that the original did. There are better examples of most of the sports in other packages or more focused games.
Sports Champions 2 – Review (PS3 / PlayStation Move)
6 December 2012
Conclusion: Sports Champions 2 creates a fun, realistic, and inclusive gaming experience for people interested in active gaming, but it doesn’t even attempt to rise above expectations for motion gaming.
Conclusion: Without the hype that comes with the launch of a new piece of hardware for support , Sports Champions 2 is a title that is all too easy to overlook and the fact that it comes with such an uninspiring collection of events makes it doubly so. In fairness, there is much here to be recommended, especially in light of its budget price.
Summary: Sports Champions was one of PlayStation Move’s launch titles that released to gamers in 2010. Featuring a handful of sports on offer, Sports Champions was for me one of the better titles that showed what Sony’s motion controllers could achieve. After two years its sequel returns to get us back up on our feet and moving once again, releasing just in time for the Christmas buying rush.
Pros: More known sports than the previous game, Deep but highly unnecessary character customisation, Level of difficulty may lengthen gameplay or just frustrate you
Cons: Only six new sports, five if you have the first game, More sports, less character customisation, No Gladiator Dual!
Excerpt: When my Editor-In-Chief asked me to review Sports Champions 2 my very first thought was “why”? The original Sport Champions had some neat events, such as Frisbee golf, the game as a whole was essentially a tech demo for the PlayStation Move at best. With generic characters and lackluster gameplay, save for bocce and disc golf, I can’t say that I really expected a sequel. So is Sports Champions 2 a shot at redemption? Another hope to showcase the Move’s precision?
