Story

The Nightmare Queen has broken an age-old contract with mankind. Now the evil of the Faerie Kingdom is crossing into the Land Above. As a sorcerer's apprentice, it is up to you to master the Magick of the Faerun and drive back the darkness. Using the PlayStation Move motion controller, Sorcery puts a wand in your hand, letting you perform spells and explore the Kingdom of Midnight. No two sorcerers are alike; every twist of the wrist and flourish of the wand adds to your personal style. Live the adventure as you hurl fireballs and conjure whirlwinds with the PlayStation Move.

PlayStation Move Motion Controller and PlayStation Eye

Equipped with a three axis gyroscope, a three axis accelerometer and terrestrial magnetic field sensor, the PlayStation Move motion controller registers the precise movements of the player, while the PlayStation Eye camera peripheral, aimed at the player and his/her controller, allows the PS3 system to translate this into usable 3D oriented data. This can then be used to accurately and nearly instantly recreate the player's physical movements in-game. The PlayStation Move motion controller also features the familiar PlayStation controller button orientation, for seamless play within the faerie realm of Sorcery from the very first use.

Gameplay

The third-person oriented Action RPG gameplay of Sorcery utilizes the PlayStation Move motion controller/PlayStation Eye camera peripheral, as well as supports the optional PlayStation Move navigational controller for ease of movement. The Move motion controller serves in-game as the player's wand. As players tackle the host of enemies, large and small, as well as spatial challenges throughout the game levels they will use their wand to access and apply spells and potions collected, earned or purchased in-game. Spells and potions are easily accessed through the Motion controller's traditional PlayStation button array, and are unleashed with a simple flick of the wrist. The sensitivity of the Move motion controller allows for both trajectory of the spell, as well intensity of impact. Spells range from blunt force, ice and fire based varieties, to those allowing for the explosive charging of areas, the creation of a whirlwind that will sweep up enemies and a mend spell that is used to repair destroyed areas. Spells can also be used in conjunction with each other to best particularly difficult enemies and situations. Balancing this ability are potions, which allow for temporary abilities and even physical transformation of the hero in order to reach areas otherwise inaccessible. Together these hardware and gameplay features create a one-to-one gameplay experience and total sense of immersion unlike anything RPG players have yet seen.

Key Game Features

  • RPG Action Like Never Before - Wield the power of a legendary sorcerer's wondrous magic wand as you cast extraordinary magic, brew enchanted elixirs, solve ingenious puzzles and combat the minions of darkness
  • Power in Your Hands - Use the PlayStation Move to cast powerful magic, conjure storms, create walls of living fire, freeze your enemies solid, transform into magical creatures and combine spells for endless possibilities
  • Transform From a Fledgling Apprentice into a Master Wizard - Start from humble farm boy beginnings, with only a small arsenal of magic at your disposal to a unstoppable magic force! Restore your ransacked tower and begin to build immense wealth for your treasure room
  • Journey into the Dark Faerie Realm - Take on quests and adventure throughout the dark and dangerous Faerie Kingdom
  • Additional Controller Support - In addition to the required PlayStation Move motion controller and PlayStation Eye camera peripheral, Sorcery also supports the PlayStation Move navigation controller, allowing for even more immersive gameplay

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Sorcery should have been one of the Move launch titles because not only does it take full advantage of both the Move and the Nav controllers but it does it in a fun, energetic and often imaginative way.

THE STORY
Sorcery is NOT an open world adventure. It's highly scripted and it follows the story of a fairy tale where you are the sorcerer's apprentice on a quest to, of course, rescue the charming princess who... but we're not supposed to reveal the plot, right? It's probably Okay to note that the story is a lot closer to a Brothers Grimm tale than Tolkien's.

I can reveal that you go through the story, page by page, chapter by chapter and, as you overcome increasingly difficult challenges, your sorcery skills grow. I've only covered the first 5 or 6 chapters so far and I'm looking forward to playing some more after I'm done spreading the word through this review :)

GAMEPLAY
Sure, there's a story and sure there's adventure and exciting combat but a lot in Sorcery is about showcasing the Move controller which is why I thought this should have been a launch title.

You would normally play standing up because there's a lot of wand waving, shaking and turning. You move in the world and initiate certain actions through the Nav controller and you cast spells, aim them and perform various other combat actions such as shield-bashing with the Move. It's hard to describe and it does involve learning new skills and it requires some coordination and good reflexes but you are learning things and tricks as you go and you have the opportunity to practice a lot on the weaker enemies before you fight the first really difficult boss.

From time to time you do die but you simply get back to where you were before the last battle started.

4.0 out of 5 stars Move Creates Magic with Sorcery May 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
UPDATE: I'm downgrading this game on the fun factor after playing 95% of the game because there are a *number* of annoying problems with this game. At times, the frustration really makes you want to stop playing.

**Be advised that you cannot play this game without the PlayStation Move, it might not be the clearest in the description, but it's clearly labeled on the box. You can't even start the game without calibrating the Move controller. **

After forcing gamers to wait way too long for a game that was originally a launch title, Sorcery is finally here, and it was worth the wait. The 1:1 tracking of the Move controller showcases the motion controller gaming like it was demoed, and it's quite fun using the controller as your magic wand. There are times it can be oversensitive, and you might miss your targets, but you'll get used to it over time.

Move controls include swiping left and right to move objects, drawing circles to 'mend' broken objects, and flicking your wrist to cast spells accurately based on how high you aim and what direction (and many more). Potions that you can craft are activated by shaking the motion controller, and then tipping it upside down like you are drinking the potion. Twisting your wrist and flicking to the side can also curve your spells which is fun to do and satisfying when you hit enemies behind cover with your spells.

This is definitely not the greatest game ever made. The game world is incredibly linear, annoyingly so. Instead of an adventure game that allows exploration and back-tracking, this game *prevents* backtracking after you move onto the 'next area'.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, way too short June 23, 2012
By S. Ryan

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First, let me say that the Move controls are great! The game functions (for the most part) as advertised. I would definitely say the game is worth $20, but no more. It is way too short! I was not expecting Skyrim, but 6 hours is the most you can squeeze out of this game. I beat it on the next to highest difficulty, but there is absolutely no reason to go through it again, other than bragging rights (and let's be honest, who cares?). I had fun, but once it ended I felt completely ripped off! I have paid a lot less for downloadable games with more content!! As I said $20 is a decent price and it might be worth it, but $40 is way too high!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Move Game June 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you are looking for a title that uses both the Move and navigation controller, then this is the one for you. After playing this game you can fully realize the potential of the Move controller. I would say that this title is probably the best Move title that I have played to date.

GRAPHICS

The graphics won't be taking on a title like Crysis by any means but they are still pretty good. The art design of the game is interesting and the array of characters and enemies I have encountered are unique. Cutscene art is interesting and is done in a style that makes sense and works for this game.

VOICE ACTING

The voice acting isn't going to win a 'best of' award but it is pretty solid.

GAMEPLAY

The gameplay is unique, providing an experience that can be addictive at times. The Move controller is used as a wand and the navigation controller is used to move your character around. The Move button is used with specific move control gestures to change spells, and it works seamlessly. This is the Harry Potter game people were looking for when Harry Potter was still relevant. Better late than never. There is also a potions mixing mini game so to speak. Your permanent ability increases are handled by researching and discovering new potions to increase your overall health, mana, etc. An interesting aspect to health potions is that you need to shake the bottles up with the Move controller and then tilt the controller to drink them. Drinking the health potion is done in real time, which adds some excitement if your health is aleady low because you can still take damage while trying to drink the potion. You can tell that the game developers put a lot of time into integrating as much Move motion controls into the game as possible.
