    To wrap it up, if you enjoyed the first Sports Champions game, or motion controlled sports games in general, Sports Champions 2 is definitely worth a look. Even with only 6 events, the challenging Arcade Mode and very customizable Party Mode along with the wealth of options and unlockables available will keep players busy and moving for many hours.

    Sports Champions 2 is some of the most fun you can have with a PlayStation Move controller in your hand. The title is accessible enough to make it a perfect fit for parties, but it boasts enough depth to keep enthusiastic gamers occupied long after everyone's gone home. The activities are largely well selected, and the calibration improvements are technologically impressive. It's just a shame that online multiplayer's still absent, otherwise this would have been an unmissable release.

    Showing one more time that PS Move is capable of a 1:1 body simulation, Sports Champions 2 strikes back with five new categories and a familiar one that, in case of Boxing, Bowling or Tennis, is a whole workout session, demanding physically from the player(s). Pure fun in multiplayer, we still miss that online mode which still resists to appear. Although not everybody can make use of it, playing with two Move sensors multiplied the fun and the challenge.

    The five sports are well executed and there's plenty to keep you playing – from the core events, challenges, online scoreboards and multiplayer. In many ways it feels indicative of motion-controls reaching a maturity of sorts; sure, the carefree magic of its youth may be fading, but it still delivers a polished and satisfying, if slightly uninspiring selection of sporting goodness.

    The game is technically proficient but unfortunately Sports Champions 2 fails to offer the unique and interesting events that the original did. There are better examples of most of the sports in other packages or more focused games.

    You really shouldn't bother at all. [Issue#225, p.81]

    While there's nothing technically wrong with the game, it just feels like there's so much missed opportunity with Sports Champions 2.

    While there are limitations with the Move controllers, this next instalment in the Sports Champions saga IS fun. I purchased a copy 2 weeks back and have enjoyed playing it since. Most of the games only require the one Move Controller, which is also good. Let Collapse
