Unlockable characters in Sports Champions?

28 Replies 5,574 Views Created 17-09-2010
In addition to the ten available characters in SC (full version, haven't tried the demo) there's a random selection button plus seven locked slots. Are there actually additional characters - I don't recall reading about any in reviews - and if so, does anyone know the requirements for when you start unlocking them? So far I'm only just getting started on the six disciplines, with archery being the only one where I've finished the 33 bronze matches.

Nobody is able to answer this? Surely someone must have spent many hours playing SC already? :)

There was a time where I always read manuals, even when the games were self explanatory. Perhaps I should get into that habit again :P.

If you win the gold cups you can face off against a boss character and if you beat them then you can play as them.

I just started the archery silver cup. There was a huge increase in difficulty (AI skill) over the extremely easy bronze cup, so I can imagine gold could prove quite a challenge in some of the events?

I just spent half an hour playing table tennis, which is my new favourite event in SC. It's incredibly close to how I remember real life table tennis (it has admittedly been a decade or so since the last time I played that), just with slightly less foot work - but still enough for me to work up a bit of a sweat :P.

I'm so glad I bought SC, it has by far been the highlight of my three days with Move (and even more so when I bought a second controller for particularly gladiator arena).

I just beat Bocce in gold cup...

 

You unlock a boss called Frankie, who's this big fat italian looking dude in a grey suit. You play him in Bocce and after beating him can use him in all the games, he appears top right in the list of unlockable characters. Not exactly the most exciting character to play, he tends to fall over a lot in Gladiator duel when you do a jump attack.

I also started table tennis on silver, and it immediately became obvious that on bronze difficulty there's heavy assist to help keep the ball on the table. On silver and gold you really need to be aware of the angle and direction of the bat/Move - just as the AI also gets a lot more competent, but that's definitely a good thing as bronze is a complete walk in the park in all events. I tried table tennis free play on gold and got my a** handed to me :), although I did manage to put up a fight and score a few points. I also tried disc golf on gold - on one of the holes the AI was inches away from getting a hole in one, and went under par on two out of six holes.

Plenty of assists. Table tennis gold I have now managed to smash down on my own half of the table a couple of times. I also miss the ball a lot more and suddenly being 10-20cm off with the controller seems to matter.

 

On disc golf playing on gold suddenly makes me wonder if the game was slightly helping me before with subtle things like making sure the disc would tilt in the right direction, etc...

 

Bocce feels like it's less forgiving when throwing too hard, but that might just be me not having played it for a few days.

 

Actually I like the way they offer a difficulty for everyone and go from "hard to lose" with lots of assists to a real challenge.

It took a while but I beat Umrog in Gold and then opened up Platinum mode.  At the end of Platinum mode you have to play against him again and it opens up Ninja Star frisbees.

 

He makes nearly impossible shots and took MANY times to beat him.  You have to be near perfect...

In Table Tennis you unlock Cyborg - "AI 8000" or something like that. He has a jets instead of legs. Platinum cup is teribble to play. I personally hate this type of playing Table Tennis: high, slow balls.

Gladiators were Roman. I know that it's easy to get them confused but it helps to use the correct society as they were very different.

Agreed, the events get way harder in the jump from bronze to silver.
