The first reviews of Sony’s PlayStation Move Heroes Game are Coming in, and they aren’t very good. In case you haven’t heard, PlayStation Move Heroes is an action game that combines the new PlayStation Move Technolgy with the characters and storylines of three of the most beloved Sony Action Franchises. The game incorporates the PlayStation Move Controller and the PlayStation Eye Camera to enter into all new adventures with Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, and Sly from the Sly Cooper franchise. The iconic characters are banded together in the game to fight a common enemy and save the world.
While good in theory, the first reviews are coming in negative.
The latest, from The Sixth Axis gives the game a 5/10 describing the game as:
PlayStation Move Heroes trades off some legacy brand IPs without ever really giving them room to shine or, indeed, interact. It’s a frustratingly shallow collection of styles, dressed up as something more than it ultimately ends up as. The presentation’s slick, the visuals are nice and some of the game types are actually rather entertaining, but as a whole this could have been so much more.
Now Gamer describes there experience with the game and gave it a slightly higher 5.4/10
A perfectly ordinary mini-game collection that fails to excite in any way. PlayStation Move Heroes takes advantage of neither its eponymous controller nor its cast of popular characters. Don’t even give it a chance.
We’ll have to wait and see what we think of it, but it puts a damper on our pre-order which has been set in stone for some time now. PlayStation Move Heroes is set to launch on March 22nd 2011 for the PlayStation 3.
