    This year's Madden capitalizes on the thrilling moments of the NFL better than ever before. Whether it's on special teams, from the commentary, highlighted in the presentation, ball-carriers in the open field, the ball physics, or great play from the defense - something that's never been seen or heard before will likely occur in every single game of Madden NFL 17. Check out the full written review at Sporting News and the video review below! ...

    There are always few surprises with MLB The Show. Consumers can trust they're going to get terrific gameplay and visuals with consistent offline modes and commentary that have arguably started to fall behind the times. Last year though Diamond Dynasty rose up to become a favorite of many and even pulled off an upset win for the Community Award of Best Team-Building Mode. That coincided with the first satisfactory online experience in series' history. Diamond Dynasty received the most upg...

    The long-running Out of the Park Baseball series has a stunning record of consistency. In entering its 17th edition the PC management simulator has averaged a score that exceeds 85 on Metacritic and last year hit its high mark of 91 through the review aggregator. The reliable nature of the series - consumers know precisely what they're getting and that it'll be a quality product - has reached a new level this year with the introduction of MLBPA licensing and new features that capitalize...

    The first big sports game release of 2016 is here with EA Sports UFC 2. The sequel has improved on the deficiencies of the first, providing a much more satisfying gameplay experience and deep roster, but the modes of play come up a little short. Career Mode is a disappointment and the new spin on Ultimate Team isn't very compelling. The new KO Mode is a winner however, even though it isn't playable online. Ultimately what it comes down to is the game this time around better respects the s...

    EA Sports rolled out a new game, NBA Live Mobile, to Canadian iOS and Android stores last week. The plan is for the game to expand to the US and other regions in the near future. It's somehow the best thing NBA Live since 2009. Using the same free-to-play model incorporating the Ultimate Team concept as other mobile sports games, NBA Live Mobile is all about building up a roster and acquiring desirable players through card packs, at auction, or with rewards. Coins and bonuses are earned ...

    The one week beta for EA Sports UFC 2 provided ample opportunity to get a feel for what's in store with the product that will be releasing on March 15. After a disappointing first effort there's reason for optimism with the sequel based on gameplay improvements, Practice and Skill Challenges meant to make the game easier to learn and improve at, and even the new Ultimate Team mode which has a different model that's been built for an individual sport. In this new episode of the Press Row Pod...

    It took several weeks for Pro-Am to get up and running properly in NBA 2K16. The recent patch has fixed the primary issues - out on PS4 but Xbox One is still waiting on that - providing an opportunity to try it out in full for the first time. (more…)...

    Last year with NBA Live 15, EA Sports was able to get the series back to a level of respectability. It still lagged far behind the competition in just about every aspect however and question remained on its viability in today's marketplace. For NBA Live 16 the company is going all-in with two new online modes, both of which fall under Live Pro-Am, and continued improvement to gameplay. Will that be enough when the rest of the game is essentially unchanged?  (more…)...
