This review is from: Sports Champions - Move Required (PS3) (Video Game)
As a core launch title, Sports Champions has to directly compete with Wii Sports. The games available are: Disc Golf, Gladitors, Archery, Bocce, Table Tennis and Beach Volleyball. All look great in HD on the PS3, are easy to pick up, and make a great addition to any PS3 system.

All use the motion controller well, but, ideally you will want two controllers per person to really enjoy them. Especially in the Archery and Volleyball, where with two controllers you really feel like you're mimicking it for real. However, once the initial fun of the motion controllers lifts, the game has to speak for itself; and it's good, but not great! I can only see myself spending long periods of time playing these games if it's multiplayer. On your own, once you've shot a few hundred arrows and jumped around the room playing volleyball for a bit, you realise the game has little progression.

Of course, the difficulty increases, which on Gladiators gets very hard very quickly (in fact, the ankle chop is the only move that works later on!). It's just that you realise the games themselves have little in the way of development.

Based solely on this game, the PS3 move is so far just an HD Wii! If you're going to buy the 'Move' system, buy this game, since it does show off what the new controllers are all about and will keep the friends entertained for quite some time.

PROS:
- Graphics look Good
- Six Games in One
- Great Multiplayer
- Uses the 'Move' Controller!

CONS:
- Games get old quickly
- Need two controllers per person to really enjoy (= ...)
- Difficulty goes from easy to difficult too quickly on some games.

when people say two controllers to be able to play sports ,do they mean a nav controller with the move controller or what? or two move controller's?

two move controllers, the gladiator game is great fun as one player with two controllers as you use one for the shield and one for the sword or axe, worth the price tag for the game on that basis alone (you'll always find the necessity for two move controllers when playing with friends or family so worth investing I reckon)
