Sports Champions 2

Publisher: Sony
System: PS3

Sports Champions 2 is the sequel to Sony's flagship launch title for the PlayStation Move motion controller, and it treads similar ground both to its predecessor as well as similar games like Wii Sports and Kinect Sports. The selection of games feels a little spartan, with only boxing, tennis, bowling, skiing, golf and archery. Sound familiar? The main problem with Sports Champions 2 is that we've played many of these games before, and the treatment here isn't sufficiently advanced to make them feel genuinely novel. Bowling and tennis are shockingly easy, with archery - a repeat performance from the first Sports Champions - a standout. None of the games are explicitly broken, and the Move controls work well enough, but the generic presentation and uninspired selection of events make it only fun for party players or families.

Score: 6 out of 10
