The Video Game Critic (May 12, 2012)
I guess the only downside to Sports Champions is that you'll need at least two Move controllers (ideally four). At $50 a pop, that's not exactly chump change, but it's the price you pay for premium motion sports action.
1UP (Sep 01, 2010)
But is Sports Champions a "killer app?" Not exactly, but, as you might guess, the multiplayer is a lot more fun than single-player. If you're intrigued by the mere idea of motion-controlled games, you probably already own a Wii, and that novelty is long gone. But as the pack-in game for the the PlayStation Move bundle, Sports Champions is certainly worth it.
Gaming Age (Sep 16, 2010)
I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Sports Champions for anyone interested in picking up a PlayStation Move. I honestly wasn't expecting much, but the precise, enjoyably implemented motion controls and event variety totally sold me.
For my athletic shortcomings, though, I can't blame the PlayStation Move and I can't blame Sports Champions. Some things are what they are, which segues nicely into my next point: Sports Champions is awesome. That's the case not because it's a good demonstration of the required hardware (though it is), or because the sports games included here are deep and rewarding (though they are). Sports Champions is awesome because it's better than it had to be, better than it needed to be and exactly the sort of game that I can happily play for hours on end with unsuspecting friends and family members who find themselves as hooked as I am. Like I said, Nintendo could have a problem.
Console Obsession (Sep 26, 2010)
Sports Champions is not only a fantastic demonstration of Sony’s new motion controller, but it’s also an immensely enjoyable game. There’s not a single sport present that doesn’t impress with its controls and as a package I can certainly see myself staying with it for the long term. Wii Sports is a lot of fun, but Sports Champions is something else entirely.

Champs isn’t the most exciting game available to date, but it does its job well of showing off the PlayStation Move and offering a great experience comparable to similar sports titles that make use of motion control. It’s a quick and to-the-point game that is sure to get the PlayStation Move off on the right foot, but, at the same time, creates a desire to show what the PlayStation Move can do that other motion control options cannot beyond being incredibly accurate.
Impulse Gamer (Sep, 2010)
At the end of the day, Sports Champions is a must have release game for the PlayStation Move that captures the potential of this new control system perfectly for the PlayStation 3. Developers, Zindagi Games have captured the uniqueness and accuracy of these controllers and even though some have labelled this as a Wii Sports clone, most PlayStation 3 owners have not yet experienced this system before so for most, it will be a breath of fresh air.
Giant Bomb (Sep 15, 2010)
Sports Champions feels cold and calculated, but it's hard to argue with its solid base of motion-based gameplay.
Brash Games (Nov 09, 2010)
If you’re looking for the perfect way to show off the Move controller, this seems to be the pick of the retail games out there at launch. There’s a surprising amount of content here, and it’s a great way to get to grips with the new pad. It’s not going to make any Game of the Year lists (except maybe “Best Motion Controlled Sports Game on a BluRay Disk”), but anyone expecting that was seriously deluded, anyway. For a game given away as a freebie with the pad in the States, this is a fun and surprisingly addictive introduction to a new way of playing PlayStation 3, and a very promising sign of things to come when developers get really stuck into the new tech. What’s more than that, it’s definitely one to dust off whenever you have people visiting.
PSX Extreme (Sep 18, 2010)
In the end, this is a great start to Move and this is coming from someone whose expectations barely registered on any scale going into the review. I’ll end with this: Wii Sports was the start. In comparison to Move and Sports Champions, the differences really are crystal clear. And no, I hadn’t anticipated that.

Au final ce Sports Champions est sans doute le jeu idéal pour se faire la main avec le Playstation Move. En effet les différentes épreuves exploitent plutôt bien l'accessoire : la manette à reconnaissance de mouvements de la PS3 s'avère précise quand il s'agit de tirer à l'arc et réactive quand il s'agit de renvoyer une balle de ping-pong. Le seul petit regret concerne le duel de gladiateurs qui est clairement en deçà des autres activités.
75 (Sep 26, 2010)
For all the enhanced visuals, it's the activities that really make use of Move's location technology that make sense and are the most fun to play. This is as true now as it was for the Wii. Whether there's the will and the market to drive developers to really deliver on this, only time will tell. In the meantime Sports Champions - and Table Tennis in particular - is more than enough reason to be excited about what is to come.
GameSpot (Sep 02, 2010)
Presentation shortcomings aside, Sports Champions is undoubtedly one of the strongest launch offerings for the PlayStation Move hardware. This isn't a game that you're likely to play solo for any serious amount of time, but it's certainly one that you'll keep coming back to in short bursts and anytime you have interested friends or relatives visiting.
IGN (Sep 01, 2010)
Sports Champions is fun, but it’s rough around the edges. The gameplay is solid for the most part and will provide you with some good times and there’s a lot for a single player to do, but it’s not going to feel fresh for long. This is another motion controlled mini-game collection. It’s a good one, but it’s not taking the genre anywhere new.

In Sports Champions steckt genau das, was man zum Start der "Fuchtelgeneration" auf der PS3 erwartet hat: Eine nette Ansammlung an familientauglichen Minispielen, die vor allem in der Gruppe Spaß machen und leicht zugänglich sind. Zwar hätten es ruhig ein paar mehr Disziplinen sein können, doch ist man dank der Meisterschaften auch mit der gebotenen Auswahl eine Weile beschäftigt. Beim Solo-Spiel ist die Luft trotzdem schnell raus und auch die Präsentation kommt nicht über den Durchschnitt hinaus. Für Wii-Kenner ist das Spielgefühl sicherlich nichts Besonderes mehr, obwohl die insgesamt hohe Präzision der Move-Controller selbst Nintendo-Anhänger positiv überraschen dürfte. Gleichzeitig werden sie die PS3-Sportler aber auch bemitleiden, weil sie vor jeder neuen Runde die nervige Kalibrierung wieder und wieder über sich ergehen lassen müssen.
70 (UK) (Sep 01, 2010)
Let's just hope there's more to choose from in the next Sports Champions, that the presentation gets brought up to date, and that the black character doesn't go "Whut?!" every time his ball bounces out of the court.
Level (Sweden) (Oct, 2010)
Sports Champions kommer aldrig att nå Wii Sports framgågnar, just för att det distanserar sig från den enkla arkadcharm som var Nintendos främsta vapen. Men som ett sätt att lära känna Sonys nya kontroll fungerar det ypperligt.

As an example of the kind of control Move is going to allow in future titles, Sports Champions is easily the best of the launch line-up, but compared to the obvious competition (Wii Sports Resort) it's lacking content. It's still the best of Sony's initial Move titles, but it needed a handful more well-realised sports in order to be classed as a great game.
Extreme Gamer (Sep 21, 2010)
To get the full out experience from 'Sports Champions' you will need at least two controllers (wands) or four if you want fully play all the modes in multiplayer. With that being said, with one wand the game is still a lot of fun and for what it is; you’ll likely be entertained until the next Move enabled title comes out. Thankfully, there is a lot more to come and 'Sports Champions' is just the tip of the ice-berg.
Hasta los Juegos (Sep 15, 2010)
Y es que por muy bueno que sea el controlador de PS3, hay juegos que son para lo que son, y en este caso es para jugar en compañía. Valorar objetivamente el disfrute que puede proporcionarte dicha experiencia es tan difícil como absurdo.
Gamereactor (Sweden) (Sep 08, 2010)
Sports Champions fungerar bättre som en demonstration av Move än som ett eget spel. Karaktärerna och inramningen är väldigt intetsägande, men om du vill se vad Sonys trollstav går för är det värt en provrunda.
