Sorcery is the sort of game Sony needs more of in order to take the PlayStation Move beyond its current status as a peripheral for gimmicky entertainment. It may not be particularly deep or quite as long as other action adventure games, but there is a real narrative-driven adventure here that will appeal to players looking for a game with a story and memorable characters.

Equally important, the game’s motion controls are well designed. Players use Sony’s Move wand in intuitive ways to twist keys, aim and cast spells at specific enemies, and solve simple puzzles. Bending magical attacks around objects by deftly flicking your wrist -- a bit like throwing a Frisbee -- is especially fun. If there was any doubt as to the Move motion control system being precise enough, this game should end it. It’s a little too short and not quite glitzy enough to be a home run, but Sorcery shows that the PlayStation Move has real promise as a platform for traditional action gaming.
