Sorcery: Sony Brings Back Game Under the Radar
The way Sorcery came and went and came back again is just like sorcery itself. The PS3 exclusive came with some magic of its own, captivating gamers – even those who are not so impressed by Sony’s Move controller. But Sorcery looked like it was about to draw gamers in. But then, our radars lost it for awhile and we didn’t know quite what to expect from it. Suddenly, it is part of Sony’s press demos in New York. The game must be pushing through.
Sorcery is seductive enough like its very own name. It actually feels good to play. There were a few changes in the game that you may have noticed if you were aware of Sorcery’s early introductions. For example, the apprentice protagonist now looks older than in the early demo videos. The aging effect must have been given to the character to make him look weathered by dangers. In the game, you can easily mix and match spells with both offensive and defensive effects. Also if you change your spell mode, you also get to give a different type of attack even if you make the same exact motion.
But of course, you will need a Move controller to play Sorcery. Sony says so. Those who own PS3s can use a DualShock 3 gamepad instead. However, a glowing Move wand is still required for casting spells.
Don’t worry, the Nav and Move combo can easily feel natural. You can even get better results after just a few minutes. So, Sorcery could really be the game that entices people to get their Move controllers.
