Excerpt: Every hardware launch has at least one "Tech Demo" title. Although it fails to impress on a technical standpoint, it manages to show just what you're getting into with the new product. PlayStation Move's launch has two such titles, pack-in game Sports Champions and the PSN downloadable title, Tumble . Tumble is more about showing off the Move than showing off what your PS3 can do.
Summary: Parents need to know that Tumble is a downloadable physics-based puzzle game that uses the PlayStation Move motion controller. Kids will likely love manipulating blocks onscreen with the PlayStation Move motion controller (required), however younger children may grow frustrated once they move beyond the first few levels and the game becomes much more challenging.
Pros: Excellent motion control, More than 60 puzzles offer plenty of challenge and variety, Multiplayer is great fun, Believable visuals and physics, More than enough content to justify the $10 asking price
Cons: Camera issues make certain levels extra tricky, No online multiplayer
Summary: Tumble might not pack the kind of frenetic and explosive punch (or volume of levels) found in the Boom Blox series, but if you're looking for a solid introduction to your new Move controller, and you want to stretch the old noggin' a bit, Tumble definitely stacks up.
Pros: Wonderful example of Move's precision, Plenty of puzzle variety, Multiplayer challenges are surprisingly intense
Cons: Physics can be inconsistent at times, Depth issues, Not enough camera control

Summary: This clever puzzle game has plenty of variety and makes great use of the PlayStation Move.
Pros: Excellent motion control, More than 60 puzzles offer plenty of challenge and variety, Multiplayer is great fun, Believable visuals and physics, More than enough content to justify the $10 asking price.
