Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

What do these ratings mean?

I was wondering if the GR reviewer was serious about table tennis.  He is the only reviewer that claims the move controls for table tennis are inaccurate.   I myself have gotten to the final match, which I am unable to conquer at this point, and I have had little problem with precision.  Is table tennis the hardest game in sports champion...Yes.  Is it one of the more fun games...Yes.  
If you point the move controller to the front of you (cone pointing to TV) and adjust your wrist clockwise or or counterclockwise, you will clearly see the virtual paddle replicate the same movements. Bottom line is the absolute best thing for us consumers to ask from this "wand" technology is precision, and the move delivers. It does a great job a tracking your movements.
The game I am terrible at is the sword battle, but it has nothing to do with the precision of the move controls.  It simply means I'm not very good at it.  And the game that is just plain lame is bocce.  Everything else is addictive.
All in all though, its a great introduction to the technology.  All Sony has to do now is make a two handed automatic gun peripheral where we can stick both the navigation controller and the move controller into, and it will take first person shooters to the next level.
So the tech is ready and willing, but it needs more consumers to come on board so Sony and third party companies can focus on the technology and release really tasty games.
