Sports Champions 2 Review - NZGamer.com

While there's nothing technically wrong with the game, it just feels like there's so much missed opportunity with Sports Champions 2.

Nothing technically wrong with the game. Plays fine and works well.

But because you see a missed opportunity you mark it down.

Ignore review if i've ever seen one.

You know what the content is, if you don't like. Don't buy.

He also states the game is going to be $60. I believe Move titles are priced at $40, but I could be wrong on that.

abzdine4261d ago

Sports Champions 2 is around 20$ maybe 30 as a max. It's even below that if you pre-order it on the PS Store and there is a free DLC available at launch if you buy it from PSS.

Stupid reviewers who have no idea about what they're talking about.

No, you are wrong. Look at the websites name "NZ" gamer. The pricing is in NZD. In New Zealand the game is $60.

Wh15ky4261d ago

A quick search shows that nzgameshop . c o m has it available for pre-order for $39.99, that's roughly equivalent to £20 sterling.

MmaFan-Qc4261d ago

39.99$ here in canada, this review seriously lack of rigor.

NZgameshop isn't based in New Zealand. It's based in UK. It just ships to NZ.

Last line: All items are shipped from the UK, delivery time to New Zealand is approximately 4-12 days.

Mighty ape which is in New Zealand has it available for $60.

Works great for me too the demo is proving that you can go check it out.
They removed the most annoying thing from the first one which is the frequent calibration and the first one already had a great motion tracking.

I'm loving the Golf, can't wait for the full game to try boxing out!!
And when you look at the price of this game it's really a huge selling argument.

Great game, stupid review.

You made an error in your review: the game is set to be 40 bucks, not 60. Amazon actually had it down to 34.99 at one point but i think it's since returned.

Otherwise, I agree with a lot you said based on the previews/reviews I've seen. It feels like they took Wii Sports and made a Move version. Also, why take out Gladiator Duel? Out of all the previous sports, that was just as good as Archery. And why not give the game some charm? It's realistic and straight-forward look is so... plain.

I'll probably still get it because i heard it works well. I'm just disappointed that they didn't try harder to do more for this young "franchise."

It's $60 retail in New Zealand. Unless you import it.

Wow. This article is like 5 years too late?

And also? The Wonderbook games, namely the two Harry Potter ones, Book of Spells and Book of Potions, were probably the best Move games... yet this article doesn't mention them.

Mr_cheese2679d ago

Resistance 3 doesnt get a mention either and that game was brilliant when used with the sharp shooter

bu3ouf912679d ago

Ha, I felt the same 😂👌

Getting a Move on The PlayStation Move: 5 Video Games Pitches To Get Motion Gaming Back On Track

Back during February’s PlayStation Meeting 2013, Sony’s PS4 reveal had one segment of the show dedicated to the use of the PS Move for next-gen. This demonstration showed Media Molecule–the creators of LittleBigPlanet–sculpting amazingly detailed digital works of arts and performing advanced puppet shows and concerts with the Move. Riding this wave, I half-expected Sony’s E3 conference to have some mention of it, and yet a whole week went by and I never heard a single peep. It may be that Sony is abandoning the Move and–pardon the pun–moving it from priority status to lowly passion project. Or, it could mean that they want a focused presentation that will continue to counter Microsoft’s every move–we all know a ten minute demo of the WonderBook was not going to do Sony any favors in the next-gen console wars. Does this mean the Move is completely dead? Or waiting for a renaissance?

With Nintendo’s Skyward Sword & Metroid Prime 3: Echoes, and Sony’s Sorcery, Sports Champions franchise, and Deadmund’s Moves in mind (arguably the best examples–technically speaking–of what motion controls can do), and perhaps even the idea of Sony’s HMD set (their PS4 console version of the Windows-based Oculus Rift) to make games even more immersive, I’m pitching five ideas for games that can get the Move moving off the shelves and into your homes.

I love Move. I hope to see it more in the coming generation. Sports Champions 3, please! Also, a new Buzz would be great!

brianunfried3911d ago

More rail shooters. I can't get enough of House of the Dead Overkill Extended Cut, the most fun I've had with the Move Sharpshooter.

titans99993911d ago

Motion gaming sucks! Let it go already!
