SPORTS CHAMPIONS 2 is a nice showcase for PlayStation Move. It demonstrates the technology's impressive precision and reliability, delivering true one-to-one control that virtually never fails. For example, it accurately and consistently detects speed, spin, aim, and loft when throwing bowling balls. And shooting arrows -- a process that involves drawing, notching, pulling back, and loosing -- is remarkably intuitive and feels very authentic.

It's only real issue is a case of the "blands." Like most sports-themed game collections, it doesn't have much in the way of personality. Characters are generic, even with the ability to change outfits and hairstyles, and the prevailing visual aesthetic is very ACME in vibe. If the sequel adds a bit of panache while maintaining spot-on controls, Sony may have the motion-controlled sports compilation game to beat.
