eh,looks....not good 
 
I thought it was based on the upcoming movie for a second. 
Nick Cage would be a good playable character now that I think of it.

Looks like a janky harry potter knock off

I laughed when the crowd applauded the fire tornado.

This looks cool. Sold me on the Move.

How is Vinny uploading videos when he is on the livestream, what is this sorcery?!?!

Posted by onyxghost

Jank. Motion controls on any console= Jank.

Posted by Mezmero

Seems surprisingly intuitive but the art style seems a bit rote.  Looks a tad too derivative of Fable. Expelliarmus!

This was a good example of what the move can do.

Could be fun.  Might need to buy a PS3 now.

It's like the audience has never seen a video game ever.
 
Sure the motion mapping is nice ... but clapping at spell effects like turning into a rat, making goblins into ice and then shattering them or a whirlwind effect that sucks up enemies?
 
Where have the audience been for the past ten years? That game doesn't have a single original gameplay element outside of the Move control.

I want a quicklook of this with Ryan, Vinny and the Rave wand.

Magic everywhere..
I think this looked pretty cool.   When I first saw it I was ready to hate it but it wasn't long before I wanted to give it a shot.  I hope it's not all dungeon crawl/corridors and a little more open.  The PS3 could use a Fable.

Art design reminds me of one of those animated movies from the early nineties, the shitty non-disney ones.

Posted by g11d

I think this looks pretty cool, depends on the depth of the game play but definitely something I could see myself playing!

When this comes out I demand a Vinyy and Ryan QL, ' Dear Readers'

Those are the people that Sony planted in the audience to clap, hoot and hollar. Everybody does it.

As long as it's fleshed out a bit more for the full release, I'm just about sold.

haha I thought the same thing, why are they all impressed by the rat potion? and then rest was just basically plasmids with motion control.

wait. . . thats sarcasm right? THIS is your system seller?
Posted by strangeling

This looks like it could be pretty fun.  Good use of the controls.

Posted by GozerTC

Isn't there a Free 2 Play MMO that's basically this game without the motion controls?  Not that that's a bad thing you know Kids like casting spells like this.

This game looks super lame...

Really? SUPER lame?
 
Well, I think it looks like it could be phun.
Posted by paulosaurus

The game looks pretty cool, at least as a tech demo of sorts.  If anything, this dude did a fantastic job demoing the game.  Most live demos are performed by mumbling, understandably nervous people like the "giant enemy crab" guy.  I didn't watch the stream live so I don't know how much Apple-style fake clapping was present at this event, but it seems like the audience really liked it.

Posted by CrazedJoker

I thought this was an excellent example of how the motion controllers for the PS3 can be a really good thing. I really want this!

Edited by CrazedJoker
@rusted3572: Really dude? You're going to be one of those people early on? I think you're full of shit. You're really missing the point. This was the first time at this years E3 that I was like "Oh hell yes!". Not only does it look like a reaaally satisfying game, it shows me something that Kinect has not shown me thus far--the willingness to make complete games around the hardware. This is a great idea, and a great use of the controls, and above all--it's something besides a minigame collection or a sports game! This says to me "We are ready to make some real ass games, for real ass people." You should really check yourself.

this look pretty cool...just a bit generic beside the move controller...

Posted by Kevitivity

After seeing what both Sony and MS are bringing to the "motion control" table, I think it's pretty clear that one company is trying to mimic Nintendo and go after casual players, while the other is focusing on core gamers.
 
Sony's solution looks much more fun and precise to me...  but Mommy, Daddy, Billy and Susy will probably be intimidated.

Posted by ChickenPants

This impressed me more than the new Zelda.

Posted by Ramyun

This looks surprisingly cool. Would like to see more of it once everything is polished off.

Posted by Addfwyn

At first I was very meh, and there are some graphical issues with this (that cape) but it actually ended up looking kinda cool.  Better tech demo than anything they showed for Kinect.  Not something I'd buy, but I can see my nephew having a good time with it, and it actually looks like a game. 
 
That's the important part, that it actually seems like a game, not a proof of concept tech demo.

Posted by myrsnok

Looks neat.

Posted by Jaqen_HGhar

While that did not look like 1:1 controls, more like how the Wii-mote is, this was a lot better than what the Kinect showed us. An actual game instead of minigames. Not enough to make me want a PS3 though, but it seems they have people willing to make proper games right of the bat for the Move.
Which isn't weird, since it is basically a Wii-mote, while the Kinect is quite different. 
*still hoping for a Black and White game for the Kinect on 360*

Jank Jank Jank.... When people learn new words eh.
 
Awesome game and all the games on the move have sold me completely. Killzone 3? Generic Magic Game? Sony Sports? SOCOM? The wii has nothing on this. And kinect? Pffft.

Posted by TzarStefan

I'm so buying this!

Edited by Grayvern

The motion control looks quite good but I don't trust even demos where it looks like they're actually playing, because they are standing and I don't stand to play. That and it looks like its going for a genericness award.

Posted by Kazzurak

Awesome i will probably buy the Move if there is more games that look as good as this.

They weren't applauding the rat spell. They were applauding the small touches, like the wand changing colour to match the potion and the intuitive controls which map to the character. 
 
The use of the word "janky" by anyone on this site is merely imitation of the GB crew. The very same people that bash Sony for copying motion controls use this word coined by GB as if it were their own way of saying "I'm GB crew too yo!"

I don't tend to use the term, but it really wasn't "coined" by GiantBomb.
I've heard developers using the term in the exact same context for over a decade now.
 
On topic: Like all of this motion controlled stuff, the proof will be in the hands-on experience.
Looks neat tho.

Good tech demo, but otherwise I think it looks kinda lame. But probably will be nice thing for Move. But I am not sold.

I get tired just watching these motion games. 
I play video games to relax, not for exercise. 
These motion games look poorly produced, light, half-baked versions of whole games.
No interest.

@Ramyun: "polished UP" is the preferred nomenclature, Dude.
Posted by RagingLion

I think this looks pretty cool.  We'll get more idea from hands-on impressions but this is exactly the kind of game that should be created as a result of motion controllers.

Posted by MisterMollusk

Hey, looks pretty cool. Only thing I'm not digging is the sleevelessness of the main character. Looked like a scrawny superhero with that cape... :P

I think to 'polish off' a game still works. Either way my point still stands.

What's your point? Isn't that how language works? I mean, the words you are using to voice your complaint are merely the result of you copying the communicative principles from your culture. Using those words is as if it is your own way of saying "I'm with the English-speaking community yo!" Again, what is your point? 
 
On topic: I think this was an excellent demonstration of what Move can do. I still don't like motion-controlled games but for what it is, it looks great.

This game has sold me on PlayStation Move. Can't believe the haters. The controls are so accurate it's ridiculous. Need. This. Game. Now.

Posted by skudfisher

The fire effects look like something out of doom II

I, personally, thought this looked more 1:1 than ANYTHING we saw at an E3 press conference, from any of the big three. It shocked me. It just seemed to... y'know... work. If they polish up the art, and work hard crafting a fun game around this, it could be very good indeed. 
 
Black & White on Kinect seems like a no-brainer once Fable's finished up.
