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

video
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...

Maximum Football 2018 Review: A Flawed Experience

video
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.

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.

When you're the only game on the market, it can be difficult to avoid falling into a state of complacency.

Driving in circles is a great metaphor for what the NASCAR video games have felt like for the better part of the last decade.

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.
