What It's Like To Play

This is what dreams are made of

Presentation

This is what dreams are made of

The six sports featured in Sports Champions take place in a variety of indoor and outdoor locations and arenas, each packed with environmental details that bring the activity and your surroundings to life.

In Table Tennis, for example, as well as shadows from swirling overhead fans and the sight of other players competing on tables in the background, there's an electronic scoreboard which tracks the speed of your shot as well as keeping the match score updated.

All of the other five activities take place outdoors and showcase the power of High Definition on PlayStation 3; from lush forests to beachfront volleyball pitches, there's plenty to feast your eye on while you catch your breath in-between picking up points on the road to sporting stardom.

Alongside a suitably stirring soundtrack, the game packs in a raft of incidental aural detail as your living room is transformed into your very own theatre of dreams with the familiar pop of ball on bat in Table Tennis and the satisfying thud of an arrow as it reaches its target in Archery.

Go for gold

Gameplay

Go for gold

Sports Champions gives you the chance to show off your skills across six challenging activities, each of which requires a mix of skill, precision and timing to master.

Take your pick from Disc Golf, Gladiator Duel, Archery, Beach Volleyball, Bocce or Table Tennis and then dive in. Within each event, you can compete for the Champions Cup, a series of increasingly challenging matches against virtual opponents.

Rack up points by playing particularly well and these will be added to your overall total which is posted on the online leaderboards; complete a series of matches and you'll get the chance to capture a victory pose which can then be posted online via your Facebook profile.

Depending on how well you perform as you progress through the Champions Cup, you'll pick up trophies, as well as unlocking new outfits, objects and opponents.

Other modes include Free Play, where you can play for fun and brush up your skills, and Challenge Mode, fun mini-games which offer a novel twist on the sport they're based on. In addition, there are a number of options you can tweak to personalise the game, including the ability to listen to music stored on your PS3 system's Hard Disk Drive while you strive for gold.

Let the games begin

With the PlayStation Move motion controller in your hand, playing each of the six sports feels natural, intuitive and incredibly accurate. And, in true sporting fashion, if you're to rise to the top, then you'll need to spend time mastering each one.

Before each event, you calibrate PS Move by following the on-screen instructions, a simple three step process that takes just seconds to complete. As you tackle each event, a series of tutorials and on-screen hints ensure that you're up to speed with the latest tips and tricks to help you make it to the top.

With PS Move in your hand, your movements are perfectly rendered on-screen; whether you're applying spin to the ball or adding power to a strike, everything is reflected in the game.

Some sports, such as Archery, can be tackled by one player with two motion controllers; otherwise, if you've only got one, the gameplay adjusts accordingly.
