Dangerous Golf Review

Dangerous Golf Reviewvideo
Dangerous Golf is a blast. Cheesy joke aside, there is no better way to describe this game. It’s heaps of fun, and there’s plenty of carnage, but you might be left a little underwhelmed when it’s over. Dangerous Golf was created by independent studio, Three Fields Entertainment. You may not have heard of them, but founders Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward...

NBA Live 19 Reviewvideo
The NBA Live series has slowly been making strides to once again be seen as a serious competitor for basketball fans.

So, does NBA Live 19 match the rising expectations of the franchise or does it take a step back? 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...

NHL 19 Review: Top of its Class

NHL 19 Review PK Subbanvideo
With NHL 18, the one thing that stood out the most was the fact that it was clearly starting to become a stale experience on the current generation of consoles. The gameplay felt old, the presentation had become dull, and the modes all felt like too much of the same. It was obvious that something needed to be done or...

PES 2018 Review: A Good Game Getting Better

video
Another year later and Pro Evolution Soccer is back. The competition is fierce in the soccer gaming business, and KONAMI put forth a big-time effort to keep up with it. PES 2018 doesn't promise a lot of new stuff compared to last year's edition, but the developers did make a great effort in securing more licenses to have real teams...

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...

MotoGP17 Review: Finishing 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. Graphics and Presentation In MotoGP17, you can see where Milestone poured the game's resources. Despite lack of depth in the background environments, foreground items look gorgeous. In addition,...

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. It's because of this, the game feels much smoother and sealing the holes left in general gameplay for years now. It has prove to be more than just an updated roster with bells...

Snow Moto Racing Freedom Review

Snow Moto Racing Freedom
Extreme sports games are a strange bag. It's a niche market for sports fans in an industry that hasn't been known to churn out great games aside from the Tony Hawk Pro Skater and Skate series of old. There have been a number of recent attempts to make a mark in the market with games like Steep and MX vs....

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...

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...

Mark McMorris Infinite Air Review

mark mcmorris infinite air reviewvideo
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. It’s not my cup of tea, which is why I’m here talking about video games and not jumping off a cliff somewhere with little more than a rope to keep me...

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. After spending a few hours playing in preparation for a MXGP3 review, I can confidently say this game is not one of...

FIFA 19 Review: A Soccer Juggernaut

video
Almost a quarter of a century has passed since the beginning of what would become the bestselling franchise in gaming history. The game simply known as “FIFA” to most has seen vast improvements which have jumped out at you from year to year during the early iterations and subtle, yet appreciated advancements in recent years. FIFA 19 is all about refining...

WRC 7 Review

WRC7 Review
Who didn't dream of driving a rally car in their childhood? The World Rally Championship series aims directly at these kinds of gamers. This year we reached the seventh edition.

Super Blood Hockey Review

video
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. Players have the option to choose from a handful of countries including the United States and North Korea -- not intentional, I'm sure -- in three modes:...

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. Plenty of developers are getting into this arena -- pun intended -- including High Horse Entertainment with their new tennis/air hockey crossover title "Disc Jam". The game is a modern day version of the...

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...

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

video
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. Maybe not that last part, but the grass is a bit greener and the graphics are beautiful. You will not mistake the game for a current gen title;...

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 Review: Thin Bench

video
If you’re expecting NBA Jam or NBA Street out of NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, you’re going to be vastly disappointed. While NBA 2K Playground 2 pays homage to both NBA Street and NBA Jam, it doesn’t come close to the depth of NBA Street or the on-court madness that is NBA Jam. Instead, it’s very vanilla and safe take on...

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...

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...

Football Manager 2019 Beta Review: No Red Cards Here

Football Manager 2019
Soccer (or football, depending on what part of the world you live in) games have become quite popular in recent years, thanks in part to the explosion of EA's FIFA series. Other soccer games, such as PES, have seen good times and bad times. Football Manager 2019, which differs greatly from some of the other games previously mentioned, is out,...

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...

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...

Mario Tennis Aces Review

Mario Tennis Acesvideo
On paper, Mario Tennis Aces and the Nintendo Switch are a match made in heaven. A hybrid console that offers games on the go, and a game that features accessible controls and short games? Why wouldn't this be a perfect pairing? Unfortunately, for everything that is great about Mario Tennis Aces, there is enough that make it feel like an...

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...

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. Ultimate is a nostalgic throwback through all of Nintendo’s properties while also diligently handling third party characters with the love and care you’d expect from this series. Let’s start with the good stuff before we tackle what irked...

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 . It actually awarded players for being crazy, out-of-control drivers. From near misses to driving in the wrong lane, you were rewarded for your pretty terrible...

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.

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....
