These Games Are Made for Move-ing.
Maybe you think the Move is dumb. Maybe you’re in love with the Move. Maybe you think the Move might be a good idea, but you aren’t sure what the hell you’re supposed to do with it, and because of that you’re reserving judgment. This post is for those in the third category. Here I will tell you what games will allow you to wave your arms wildly while playing. Hit the jump.
There are two groups of games that use the Move: those that can only be played with the Move and those that can be played with the Move or with a regular PS3 controller. Oh, and a few previously released games will be patched to add Move support once the controller is out. Suh-weeeeeeet.
Games that require the Move:
- Brunswick Pro Bowling
- Singstar Dance
- Start the Party, which is a collection of minigames.
- Heroes on the Move, a platforming adventure game with an all-star cast Sony announced at the presser; it’ll feature Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, and Sly Cooper and Bently.
- Sports Champions, which is available in a bundle with the Move controller
- TV Superstars, which you should just read about here rather than have me butcher the concept.
- The Shoot, an arcade-style lightgun shooter.
- Sorcery, a fantasy adventure title.
Games that don’t need the Move but are up for anything.
- The Fight: Lights Out, a, uh, fighting game.
- SOCOM 4: US Navy Seals
- Time Crisis Razing Storm
- The Sly Collection
- LittleBigPlanet 2
- Kung Fu Rider, in which you ride down a long hill (not to hell, I don’t think) on an office chair and try to avoid physical harm
Old games retrofitted with Move support
- Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
- Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 (duh)
- Heavy Rain
And there you go. Is that lineup large enough to warrant the investment in the Move? Maybe, maybe not. I’m sure the lineup will get bigger as we get closer to launch in September. You don’t have to decide now, guys.
