Party Golf Review (PS4): Gulf Fun for Everyone!

Usually if a game has a series of glitches, questionable AI and unfinishable levels, it will receive all the criticism it deserves, but sometimes a game is so fun that stuff just doesn’t matter. That’s Party Golf. Party Golf is a game by Australian indie developers Giant Margarita, originally funded on Kickstarter. I played it at Pax Aus and was lucky...

Canadian Football 2017 Review

Canadian Football 2017video
Fans of the Canadian Football League have always seemingly been at the short end of the stick when it comes to video games. While leagues like the National Lacrosse League have received games over the years, Canadian Football has been left out in the cold. Until now, kind of. It's been almost 20 years since fans of the CFL had a...

NASCAR Heat 3 Review: Finding Its Line

video
Driving in circles is a great metaphor for what the NASCAR video games have felt like for the better part of the last decade. While there have been nice strides forward at times, there was just too much of the same to really make the games feel fun and different year over year. It often felt like you were doing...

Full disclaimer: I love the Burnout series. In fact, if you were to ask me to rank my favorite game franchises of all time, the Burnout series would easily sit in my Top 10.

Axis Football 18 Review: Another Step Forward

video
When playing Axis Football 17, there was always something sitting in the back of my mind whenever I loaded up. It was a comment from one of the game's producers about the future of the franchise.

mlb_15_The_show_review_Indiansdive
The grass is getting greener. The days are getting longer. The sun is getting brighter. Spring is here. And so too is baseball season, along with its virtual representation in MLB 15 The Show. Sony’s lone and inveterate sports franchise bears its cleats firmly in the mound as it continues to transition to the PS4. So, naturally, the question...

Gear Club Unlimited 2 Review: A Worthy Switch Racer?

Gear Club Unlimited 2video
The Nintendo Switch has no shortage of great games available, but what it does lack is a great sim racer. Gear Club Unlimited tried to get a grip on that market when it came out back in 2017 for the hybrid console. Unfortunately, it couldn’t get over the hump of being a mobile port to really stand out to players....

Forza Horizon 3 Review

The Forza series has done something very impressive over the last few years. At the surface level, both the Motorsport and Horizon series from Playground Games have barely changed. The same format gets thrown onto the table and they just slam a few new aspects on top and release a new game. Normally, this would be an outrage. Charging...

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Review

F1 2016 Review

F1 2016 review
When it comes to iterative sports titles, the year one game on a new generation of consoles is usually terrible. In the rush to get a new game on to the latest consoles, developers lop off features or break gameplay. F1 2015 from Codemasters was not an exception to the rule. Last year's edition was roundly panned and deservedly so....

Casey Powell Lacrosse 18 Review

Casey Powell Lacrosse 18video
It came out of a nowhere like the scariest of RKOs, but a sequel to Casey Powell Lacrosse 16 is here in the form of Casey Powell Lacrosse 18. Immediately, you notice how the game looks quite similar to Lacrosse 16. Despite two years between releases, the player models in Lacrosse 18 look nearly identical to those in 16. There...

Old Time Hockey Review: A Return To The Glory Days?

Old Time Hockey
Nostalgia is a weird animal. For my generation, it's reminiscing about what Nickelodeon use to be in the 1990s, and the idea of having to sit in the same room with people -- I know, spooky -- in order to play video games with them. It's something we can't avoid, and many of us look to grab ahold of those nostalgic...

ClusterPuck99 Review

For anyone old enough to remember the classic arcade game Pong you remember how simple it was, but it still kept you entertained when you were trying to kill time. ClusterPuck99 has a lot of the same qualities. When you first fire it up you get the feeling of an arcade. The design and graphics of the game are basic...

Need for Speed Payback Review

Need for Speed Payback
Just for a moment, close your eyes and picture yourself speeding along beautiful landscapes in an amazing car, and racing for a chance to make it big. Now imagine that, in the middle of that race, you hit 20 potholes, an oil slick and you fly off a cliff. That's Need for Speed Payback. The game kicks off by throwing you...

Everybody’s Golf Review: A Course in Fun

Everybody's Golf
Everybody's Golf is a sometimes arcadey and sometimes simulation experience all wrapped up nicely in a fun, cartoony, and fast paced game of golf. The game really excels in the graphics department. Offering the option of 4K visuals and HDR. Or you can opt for the steady 60-frames-per-second mode. Either way, the game is beautiful. The colors pop and the...

Monster Energy Supercross 2video
After years of subpar releases, niche sports are back to seeing games released that are worth playing.

The one sport still feeling that way, however, is off-road motorcycle racing. While there have been various Motocross and Supercross...

Mutant Football League Review: Where Horror Meets Gridiron

In the 1990s and early 2000s, game developers weren't afraid to take risks by creating unique games that parodied the seriousness of simulation sports titles. Back in 1993, EA actually decided to release its own over-the-top arcade football game called Mutant League Football for the Sega Genesis. The game quickly became a cult classic to fans, and even spawned a...

R.B.I. Baseball 17 Review: Back to 2016?

rbi baseball 17 reviewvideo
Gaming is a strange beast, isn't it? Sometimes you have a great series that just improves year after year (did I say The Show?), and sometimes you have a franchise that seems to repeat itself in circles. R.B.I. Baseball clearly belongs to the second category. The game features official MLB licensing -- real teams, players, and graphics -- and is available on...

Mark McMorris Infinite Air Review

There are a certain kind of people who enjoy extreme sports. The adrenaline rush, the possibility of death, the ability to pull off insane skills at insane speeds.

NBA Playgrounds Review: A Slam Dunk or Near Miss?

video
The arcade basketball genre is one that used to be almost as big as the simulation games it parodied. From NBA Jam to NBA Ballers, the fun was there with all of these games before they went the way of the Woolly Mammoth years ago. Now in 2017, Saber Interactive looks to bring back this style of game with its two-on-two...

Following a very strong debut on the PS4 and Xbox One PES is back for it's 20th anniversary.

Ride 3 Review: Best Motorcycle Racer Ever?

video
There's something about being on a motorcycle that just makes you feel free. Maybe it's the fact you aren't enclosed in a metal and plastic box on wheels.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, it has been almost two years since the release of EA Sports' initiatory UFC title, but how does EA Sports UFC 2 measure up? UFC games can be all over the place.

NBA Live 18 is attempting a comeback.

Eastside Hockey Manager
For years, NHL Eastside Hockey Manager was the way to go for all of the aspiring Lou Lamoriello's who wanted to have a run at the Stanley Cup, trade away superstars for first-round picks, or chase their favorite player to attempt a blockbuster trade.

Franchise Hockey Manager 4
It's a unique feeling that's hard to replicate. Whether you happened to build your team by signing nothing but the best free agents and trading for key players or you built a dynasty through the draft, there's nothing quite as rewarding as when your hard work pays off in the form of a championship. To paraphrase a near 50-year-old song: you...

Onrush Review: Chaotic Entertainment

Onrush Review
When anyone thinks of racing, they immediately think of a group of competitors battling for position to see who can come in first place. It's a pretty straight forward concept that Codemasters' latest title Onrush throws right out the window. Although it's technically a racing game, Onrush is nothing like what you'd expect. Where you finish doesn't matter because there is no finish...

Super Mega Baseball 2 Review: A Grand Slam

video
For years, arcade sports games had seemingly gone the way of the dodo bird.

Over the last few years, however, we've seen...

You may not have heard of them, but founders Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward...

NBA Live 16 storms into the arena with multiple enhancements both on and off the court, but are the improvements enough to warrant a purchase over last year’s edition?

Maximum Football 2018 Review: A Flawed Experience

For a lack of a better phrase, Canadian Football 2017 just wasn't a good game. A lack of depth along with countless bugs made it feel like a rushed college project as opposed to finished product.

If you’re expecting NBA Jam or NBA Street out of NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, you’re going to be vastly disappointed.
