The Fight: Lights Out Review

It might be fun for an hour or so –the combined efforts of Danny Trejo and a pumping soundtrack do wonders in getting the adrenaline flowing – but there's no real lasting appeal here.

The first round of PS Move titles have been awful overall, I hope they improve in the near future or Move is going to fail almost as soon as it has been released.

This whole Move and Kinect thingy seems to not be shaping up too well!

Well no shock here... Move was pretty much d.o.a for me anyway.

Real shame as it looks like it could have been really good. Decent fighting mechanics and I can see this being a cool beat 'em up.

Oh well, still not considering a Move purchase yet.

All motion controlled games fail, they're pricey gimmicks, nothing more.

Not a very good review imo. No mention of any lag experienced and no mention of the online multiplayer, as for the responsiveness of the game to the reviewers motions it seems like the reviewers opinions differ greatly from all recent hands-on reports. Which makes me think that there may be 1 of 2 problems. Either 1) The reviewer can't punch his way out of a paper bag or 2) The reviewer doesn't have his Move bits and pieces set up correctly.

One of the guys from The Sixth Axis had so much of a blast beating the hell out of the first few opponents that his review is late lol.

Whatever.

Move is the farthest thing from my mind when it comes to gaming purchases. Same goes for Kinect.

Doesn't appeal to me at all. Even if every review out there said it was good.

Not for me.

Move's actually quite good, although I've been a Wii owner since it launched so for me motion controls are the norm. I've got all 3 consoles but my Wii and PS3 get around the same amount of use and my 360 is used the least.

When implemented properly motion controls are excellent, and are very good at improving immersion. Pointer controls in particular are great for FPS and TPS games. Once you've adjusted the control customisation to find your sweet spot and get over the small learning curve you won't want to go back to clunky dual analog sticks again. They're smoother, faster and more accurate than dual analog sticks.

More and more people are going to realise this once the likes of Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 are released, you'll end up with Move users pwning dual analog users all over the place.

If that's your thing then go for it. I never liked the Wii. Had one for a while and gave it away. Obviously people differ in tastes and attitudes towards gaming. It's just really not my cup of tea. There may be a moment where I get a fleeting sense of enjoyment out of it. But for me it's just another excuse to bring a casual gimmick to market and draw the masses. It'll make money for Sony and MS no doubt, as Wii's success can attest to, but alas I will be sticking to the more traditional gaming.

As for "movers" pwning dual analogue users all over the place goes... We'll just wait and see.
