WWE 2K19 Review – 2K Kicks Out At Two

video
WWE 2K19 refuses to shy away from the shortcomings of its predecessor. Instead, as a proper sequel or successor, it builds off the foundation laid by WWE 2K18.

Dirt 4 Review: Rally Racing’s Standard-Bearer

DiRT 4 Your Stage
There's nothing quite like trying to drift around a sharp turn, fight with your car to keep it on the track and, somehow, manage to pull it off unscathed. It's little victories like that within a race that add to the overall joy of completing and, hopefully, winning the race. Dirt 4 is full of those little victories in a...

Axis Football 17 Review: Contender or Pretender?

Axis Football 17video
Football, the new great American past time. Don't believe, just turn on your TV or go online. There's never a day where it isn't being covered by every sports outlet in the country. Even the digital world can't get enough of their hard-hitting, touchdown-scoring, pass-catching football. While Madden is still clearly the king of the gridiron, more and more developers want...

MXGP3 Review – Not A Game Changer

MXGP3 Review
While motocross is widely accepted as entertaining, the video game genre is geared toward a niche market. However, in the past it has been able to produce a few games that appealed to a more broad audience.

Burnout Paradise Remastered Review – Welcome To Paradise City (Again)

You get two options: enter Paradise City or start a party. Upon entering Paradise City, you're thrust into the open road where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.

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. Specifically, about what fans would see with Axis Football 18. "I’d be lying if I said that we didn’t believe we were on to something,...

RBI Baseball 18 Review

RBI Baseball 18video
RBI Baseball 18 has tried to pick up the slack left by the MLB 2K series for Xbox. Since MLB 2K's demise, that community has dispersed into different directions. Some have long since moved on to MLB The Show for the PS4. Others stayed and either stopped playing baseball games or got acquainted with the RBI Baseball. With its...

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Review: Smashing

If Super Smash Bros. Ultimate were the last Smash Bros. game in the series, I wouldn’t be upset. Overall, Super Smash Bros.

Let’s start with the good stuff before we tackle what irked...

Dirt Rally 2.0 Review: Stay Focused

video
Dirt Rally 2.0 is as satisfying of a racing experience as Codemasters has ever developed. It can even be stated that it’s as satisfying of a racer that’s ever been made.

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....

PES 2016 Review: An In-Depth Look

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. Or maybe it's the ability to easily cruise at high speeds. Or maybe it's the fact that you are playing a game of Russian Roulette with your life where one simple mistake...

F1 2017 Review: A First Place Finish?

F1 2017video
It's been a somewhat bumpy road in recent years for Codemasters and their Formula 1 racing series. The series came to the current generation of consoles with a mediocre, at best, showing of F1 2015, but followed that up with an improvement with F1 2016. Now, with F1 2017, the series is going for the checkered flag with the deepest, most...

Danger Zone 2 Review: Fun Yet Shallow

Danger Zone 2video
Back in the early 2000's, there was a little series that you might have heard of known as Burnout A racing game by genre, Burnout was much more than crossing a finish line first .

MotoGP17
After spending the week with MotoGP17, I can confidently say the game does what it sets out to do. The dev team at Milestone does an excellent job at providing an authentic MotoGP racing experience.

Super Blood Hockey is a retro-style hockey game that gives off the feeling that you are playing the classic Ice Hockey game from the NES, just with a bit more blood and violence.

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.

Madden NFL 19 Review: Status Quo

video
With another football season comes a new Madden NFL game to get our hands on.

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...

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...

MLB The Show 18 Review: Long Live The King?

MLB The Show 18 Review Imagevideo
Building the best sports game isn't always about making the biggest additions possible year over year. Rather, it's often about taking aspects from previous installments and adding more details to make the in-game experience more authentic. Even the smallest additions can make a game more fun than a big new feature can. It's a reason why the MLB The Show series...

NBA Live 16 Review and In-Depth Analysis

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?

Disc Jam Review: The Next Big Indie Sports Game?

Disc Jam Reviewvideo
With the success that Rocket League has seen over the last two years, it's no surprise that the market for arcade sports titles has continued to grow.

The game is a modern day version of the...

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...

Monster Energy Supercross 2 Review

Monster Energy Supercross 2video
After years of subpar releases, niche sports are back to seeing games released that are worth playing. From Steep to OnRush, these impressive games have once again given hope to fans that they aren’t as forgotten about as they once seemed.

EA Sports UFC 2 Review

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.

FlatOut 4: Total Insanity Review

flatout 4 review
FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction was released back in 2011, and, in short, it was abysmal. Regarded by many as one of the worst racing games ever, it probably wasn’t going to be very hard to top, but FlatOut 4: Total Insanity did a pretty good job of redeeming the franchise. While repetitive at times, it was still a game I...

F1 2018 Review: The Best Gets Better

F1 2018video
Since taking over the Formula 1 license eight years ago, developer Codemasters has seen its share of highs and lows. If 2015 was it's low point then it's safe to say that F1 2017 was an ultimate high for the series. From a deep career mode to the most realistic gameplay produced, F1 2017 left the studio with what some...

The Golf Club 2 Review: King of the Links

The Golf Club 2
With the warmer weather finally here in most places in North America, there's plenty of opportunity to get outside and enjoy some fun outdoor activities like cookouts, fishing, boating, and, yes, golf. Of course, there's plenty of people who either can't or don't want to do any of those things. Instead, they'd rather just use the time to simulate doing...

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...

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...

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.

Franchise Hockey Manager 4 Review

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...

No Time to Explain is a 2D side-scrolling game that you can play solo or co-operatively with up to 4 people. I tried to play about 10 minutes of this game with a friend in order to see what the game is about. 10 minutes shortly turned into 20, then 45, then an hour. We finally decided to take...

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...

NBA 2K18 Review: A Slam Dunk for 2K?

NBA 2K18 Reviewvideo
With the release of NBA 2K18, 2K Sports once again is the go-to for fans of basketball. Much like the iPhone, while we all know we're going to buy it in the end.

Dangerous Golf Reviewvideo
Dangerous Golf is a blast. Cheesy joke aside, there is no better way to describe this game.

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

MLB Manager 2017 Review

MLB Manager 2017
When it comes to mobile devices, management games fans don't have too many options. Football Manager Mobile is a good one, but the market as a whole is not really as mature as the PC one.
