Top 5 Playstation Move/Eye Games
Top 5 Playstation Move/Eye Games
So you’ve finally purchased the Playstation Move bundle. Although it comes with Sports Champions, you’ll probably get tired of it pretty quickly. You’re in luck though because there’s a plethora of fun and engaging games out now for the Move. Check out the essential 5 games for your collection after the break.
5. Kung-Fu live
While the game technically only requires the Playstation Eye; it’s one of the most fun, engaging, and physically demanding titles on the list. The camera puts you into the game, fighting waves after waves of ninjas, street thugs, demons and ancient martial artists. Hit ditection is spot on, and the fact that it’s YOU fighting in the game makes it all the more special. Martial artist or not, you can fight however you want and still get a great workout and enjoying it.
4. Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
Resident Evil 5 has been out for a while now, yet the addition of Move enabled gameplay puts a new and interesting dynamic into the fray. The game now lets you aim your gun using the Playstation Move while you control your character using the Navigation Controller (or Dualshock 3 controller). This makes aiming a little bit easier compared to the original method. Also, you can do a quick knife swipe by swiping the Move controller from left to right. It saves precious time from having to ready the knife before attacking. And the best part about it? Gold Edition crams in all of the DLC’s, adds additional costumes, and brings back the Mercenaries Reunion in one very affordable Blu-Ray.
3. Singstar + Dance
Dance games are all the rage these days. So why not try it yourself? Not only do you get a dancing game, but a Karaoke game as well. Singstar Dance includes 30+ songs; each with their own dance choreography. The player follows the onscreen dancer, and the game tracks the Playstation Move as the player imitates the dancing on screen. This can be done while another person sings along to the various songs. Singstar Dance is also compatible with older Singstar titles, most of which can be found on the cheap. Players can also visit the Singstore (online) to purchase more songs and dance choreographies to add to their collection.
Singing and Dancing to Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” never gets old.
Warning: YOU WILL LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT WHILE PLAYING THIS.
2. Killzone 3
As I’ve mentioned in my Killzone 3 review, the Playstation Move changes the Killzone 3 experience dramatically; adding a PC Mouse-like precision to the console shooter. The player can also do certain actions to perform melee attacks and reloads. As if Killzone 3 wasn’t immersive enough, the Move really brings the player into the action by simuating holding a gun and shooting. The Move’s rumble feature ramps up the experience as it simulates recoils, thus affecting your aim. Players with extra cash to spare should also get the PS Move: Sharpshooter attachment to really up the ante.
1. Dead Space: Extraction
Originally a Nintendo Wii exclusive, Dead Space: Extraction comes as a downloadable title for the Playstation 3 or as a free game with the purchase of Dead Space 2 Limited Edition. The game is a prequel to the events of the first Dead Space. The few survivors remaining in the horrors of USG Ishimura must escape the ship and into civilized society. The game plays as a rail shooter in the vain of Time Crisis and House of the Dead. Players are given the same type of munitions and armament as in Dead Space 1 and 2 with a focus on decapitation and strategic dismemberment in order to defeat (kill) the necromorphs. For $15, Dead Space: Extraction is a must have for all Playstation Move owners.
