SORCERY PS3, 26 May 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
So after a long awaited release the ps3 exclusive Sorcery has finally arrived and for me it was certainly worth the wait. Ill split this review into a few different sections each focusing on certain areas of the game.
Story: So the story of sorcery revolves around a young sorcerers apprentice named Finn. Finn is the apprentice of a magic master named Dash and is a bit of a trouble maker. He is accompanied throughout the game by a cat like creature named erline. Whom is also quite naughty. Anyway finn unlocks a terrible curse that sets free the nightmare queen who is intent on engulfing the land in darkness and your mission is to stop her. the whole game has a very Celtic feel and follows its mythology.
Gameplay: The game play is in my opinion great, its so much fun to flick the move controller at your enemies and combining spells is brilliant. Probably the most immersive move experience yet. What i also love is that you have to do everything in the game. From unlocking doors with a flick of your controller, to shaking an old potion bottle to get it working overall spells can be cast very accurately and power and trajectory are all decided by how you flick your wand (motion controller). You also encounter many different types of spells that you can learn as you delve deeper into the game these include; Arcane, Fire, Ice, Earth, Lighting and Wind and these can be switched between with a whip of a wand
Score: The musical score is a lovely accompany to the game and also has a celtic feel, you can also sometimes use the music to see when certain enemies are close by.
Presentation: This game is very well presented with loads of enemies varying in heights sizes and powers which is great , the graphics aren't incredible but they are completely acceptable as it is meant to look like a cartoon. Also many different lands can be explored throughout the game and they all look grrrrrreeeaaaaatttt.
Overall: Story: 9/10
