Let’s Talk: Sorcery

Welcome to another Let’s Talk video with Meg!

In this video I will be talking a little bit about my initial thoughts on the PlayStation 3 exclusive, Move compatible title, Sorcery, a game about a rambunctious apprentice named Finn and his feline comrade.

Take a look at my first impressions of Sorcery!

Overall I feel that Sorcery is a surprise gem that I fear has fallen at the first hurdle because of poor marketing.

It has the atmosphere of a ‘last-gen’ platformer or adventure game (think Spyro or Jak and Daxter.) It is deceptively challenging, simple in execution, formulaic in the most addictive fashion, linear (so far) and the Move controller spices up the mix making it a throughly entertaining play; it has a great sound, though the score could have benefitted from the ‘last-gen’ treatment, and the graphics could have done with something a little extra and lacked an overall punch.

I would say that anyone who misses the days (and games) of the Sony PlayStation One, or even Two for that matter, Sorcery could very well be for you!

Check out the story trailer!

So what do you make of Sorcery? Are you a wannabe-wizard who just can’t wait to make some magic? Perhaps the trailers didn’t pique your interests at all? Please feel free to leave your comments and opinions below!

Remember! This is my personal opinion; the only way you can determine what you’ll make of a game is to play it for yourself. Is Sorcery right up your alley as a gamer? Then try it out!

Side note – all of the tracks playing in this video are from the official Enslaved: Odyssey to the West score, composed by Nitin Sawhney, purchased with the collectors Edition of the video game and belongs to the respective owners. These are (in the order they appear):

1. Catch the Dragonspy
2. Cloud Surfing
