WWE 2K17 Review

Wrestling is a performance. It's exaggerated, it's over-the-top, and everyone knows it's not exactly real. Fans flock to professional wrestling precisely because of how insanely over-the-top it can go. They go for the show. Nobody actually cares if the actual wrestling is real or not, all they care about is how well the performance is sold to them and how well the...

Sebastian Loebe Rally EVO Review

Milestone has a long and storied history with motorsports. For the past two decades, they've spent a long time developing racing games for everything from the MotoGP to the World Rally Championship.

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...

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.

FIFA 19 is all about refining...

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...

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...

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...

NHL 18 Review: The More Things Change

NHL 18 Reviewvideo
Since the debacle that was NHL 15 three years ago, it's safe to say that the NHL series finally got back on track with NHL 17 last year. But after getting things back into a nice rhythm, the pressure was on EA Sports to deliver another fun experience with NHL 18. The game doesn't make the jump to the Frostbite...

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...

MLB The Show 19 Review

video
MLB The Show has never been a game to make huge overhauls year in and year out. Instead, they take what they have and improve it. With a solid foundation, MLB The Show 19 continues to be one of the top sports games in terms of gameplay and realism. MLB has always been about the little things, and this year...

Madden NFL 18 Review – SGO

video
If Madden 17 was the installment that restored faith into a franchise that many thought was becoming stale, then Madden 18 is the installment that proves just how great the series really is. Even though it's been four years since the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launched, Madden finally looks like what fans expected a "next-gen" football game to look like...

NASCAR Heat 2 Review: Back On The Lead Lap

NASCAR Heat 2video
NASCAR is a sport that usually garners two simply reactions: love or hate. The same goes for video game adaptations of the sport. You either enjoy them, or you don't. There is simply no “tolerating” a NASCAR video game. NASCAR Heat 2 is looking to take everyone who was on the “dislike” side of the spectrum, and bring them over to...

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. The sequel to 2015’s Dirt Rally, Dirt Rally 2.0 is a game geared to hardcore fans of rally racing which may turn off some new players looking to get...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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,...

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? Or perhaps of greater salience, can Live finally escape its image as the D-league of virtual basketball and rise up to cement its place in sports gaming relevance? Gameplay NBA Live 16...

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.

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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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.

Super Blood Hockey Review

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.

Draft Day Sports Pro Basketball 2019 Review

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