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. Now, after another year of development and a complete re-branding, Canuck Play is back with Maximum Football 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Moving...

MLB 15 The Show Review: A Home Run for Sony San Diego?

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...

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,...

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...

The Golf Club 2019 Review: A Near Ace

video
The Golf Club is a franchise that comes from humble beginnings of just a group of developers that wanted to create a golf game that offered options for players that hadn't been seen before. Fast-forward four years later and The Golf Club is entering new territory as a licensed title with The Golf Club 2019 featuring the PGA Tour. Right away,...

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...

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...

NBA Live 18 Review: Driving To The Hoop And Finishing Strong

video
NBA Live 18 is attempting a comeback. Much like in it's "The One" mode where you take control of a former college player whose career was cut short by a significant injury, you can make the case that the NBA Live franchise is also recovering from a significant injury. A blow caused by what could be seen as a poor effort...

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 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. Pro Evolution Soccer has always had competition with the best selling soccer game FIFA, but this season PES has been billed as the "FIFA Killer" with many people thinking that PES 2016 has a strong chance to surpass its rival. The question being raised now...

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...

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...

NBA 2K17 Review: Is it the Best 2K Ever?

nba 2k17 review paul george lebron james
A new NBA season is upon us, which means another NBA 2K game. One of the most successful sports game franchises has to constantly live up to the expectations gamers place on it and they always pass with flying colors. Will 2K17 be more of the same? Let’s find out. Presentation You get Kevin Harlan and Greg Anthony returning as two of...

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 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...

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...

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. With five games based on the World Rally Championship under their belt, it's safe to say they know a thing or two about rallying. Their latest take 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...

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...

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...

Super Mega Baseball 2 Review: A Grand Slam

video
For years, arcade sports games had seemingly gone the way of the dodo bird. Every company seemed to be more focused on providing as realistic of an experience as possible that no one wanted to venture back into the genre that had given players games like NFL Blitz, NBA Jam, and MLB Slugfest. Over the last few years, however, we've seen...

NBA 2K19 Review

video
Every year, the NBA 2K series delivers a top-level basketball product to gamers. And despite being at the top for so long, they’ve done a great job of not becoming complacent and continuing to push the bar higher and higher. With the release of NBA 2K19 many are wondering if 2K Sports is able to once again top the standard...

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...

Out of the Park Baseball 19 Review

If gold standard means "a thing of superior quality which serves as a point of reference against which other things of its type may be compared", then OOTP 19 is definitely the gold standard of the baseball simulation games. Or perhaps even of the whole genre, even if Football Manager has that worldwide reputation that's hard to pass, especially...

NBA 2K16 Review: An In-Depth Look

Steph Curry nba2k16_review_stephan_curry
In many ways the evolution of Basketball video games can be compared with Basketball, the sport itself. Way back in 1972  console maker and gaming company Magnavox (one of the first of its kind) released a game simply called “Basketball” for the Magnavox Odyssey console. It was the first of its kind and much like the game Dr. Naismith invented...

Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2017
Have you always wanted to have an impact on the NCAA basketball March Madness as a head coach? Wolverine Studios and Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2017 may be the game for you. The game isn't developed by a mainstream, large publisher, therefore some people can expect a light game out of this title. It's not like that. The game is incredibly deep. Creating...

WRC 7 Review

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....

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...

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...

Football Manager 2018 Review – Taking Managing To The Next Level

Annual franchises tend to come with a certain shadow of doubt. Each November soccer simulation gamers have one with the yearly release of Football Manager, the always-popular manager simulation from the Sports Interactive.
