Two other games I’ve picked up thus far, and taken Move for a ride with, are R.U.S.E. and Tumbler. R.U.S.E. is a real-time war strategy title that features very intuitive Move controls. While I’m not a big fan of the game itself, mostly due to the incredibly poor story and voice acting, the controls are solid and it makes me excited about future RTS Move games. Tumbler is a two-player block stacking game with several different modes as well as a single player campaign. It is inexpensive, and you can download it right off the PSN. I would definitely recommend it to any Move owner.
One thing that may cause some concern for Move owners is the calibration issue. In some games, like Sports Champions, you have to recalibrate the controller before every new game. It isn’t a big deal, but it does feel tedious after a while. When standing up you also have to worry about your arm going out of the camera’s line of sight, rendering it near-useless. I only had one issue with lighting, and that was when the colored ball at the top of the controller would get lost in bright light. None of these are game-breaking problems, but they are things to consider.
Overall, I am pleased with my Move purchase so far. While R.U.S.E. and some of the demos were a bit of a let down, Sports Champions and Tumbler are tons of fun. Some older PS3 games, like Heavy Rain, MAG, and Resident Evil 5, as well as new games, like Killzone 3 and LittleBigPlanet 2, are getting Move support as well. The Move library itself is a little thin right now, so those of you on the fence should probably wait until more substantial titles come out.
