    Between the ongoing pandemic and impending transition to new consoles Madden NFL 21 and other sports games this fall will have faced unprecedented challenges. Some of what that could mean has already been demonstrated with the release of Madden 21 which has stumbled out of the gate to the worst reviews in the 32 year history of the series. (more…)...

    The fourth entry in the series previously known as The Golf Club is certain to get increased exposure due to the rebranding to PGA Tour 2K21 and the marketing might provided by publisher 2K Sports. Overlooked by some and arguably underrated in the past by others, this latest iteration won't seem dramatically different to those who are familiar with The Golf Club but does deliver a more welcoming experience for newcomers and those who may not find themselves improving at a rapid pace.

    Going into NBA 2K20 expectations were high that the improvements being made to gameplay, the revamping of MyGM mode and a new story mode with high the usual high production values would lead to one of the more compelling iterations in the series. There certainly was already more content in place than any other sports gaming franchise to roll over along with gameplay and presentation already considered to be the best in the genre and no other sports game having one completely impressive franc...

    The twilight of the generation tends to produce the most complete and most memorable sports games. While it's probably the third best edition in the long-running franchise from the last decade Madden NFL 20 is not the complete package that will be recalled among those past greats. Elements introduced in the game this year however have produced a much more authentic gameplay experience and more compelling Career/Story Mode. The X-Factors dramatically alter the way games must be approached ...

    The contraction of the sports video game genre within the last 10+ years has reduced the sports with competition down to only a few, and one of those has barely just hung on and isn't at all competitive. With that in mind, in soccer and basketball there are multiple options to consider spending money on, but consumers may already have pre-conceived notions of which they should choose while others may be up into the air as to a decision. Battling on the pitch is FIFA 19 and Pro Evolution S...

    Madden NFL 19 is the first of EA Sports' suite of annual games to release in 2018, and as such is the first to feature the new Real Player Motion animation technology. Increased player control is at the heart of Madden 19, whether it be when competing on the field or when taking on the task of building a team as a coach/GM in Franchise Mode. Real Player Motion delivers some dynamic moments and is generally satisfying when controlling the ball-carrier. There's increased differentiation bet...

    In what amounts to a bounce back year for the NBA 2K series, the latest edition delivers phenomenal gameplay while continuing its place as the most content-rich game in the genre. The new motion system for gameplay, expanded story elements in MyGM, and addition of all-time teams help to take the game to the next level. Note: The ongoing serious situation with deleted MyPlayer characters did not factor into the score, as this is not affecting everyone and will likely be resolved in the nea...

    NHL 18 is probably the strongest entry in the EA Sports series in recent memory for newcomers or inexperienced players however veterans may not see as much of a difference from last year as they would have hoped. With the new arcade mode NHL THREES, co-op (local or online) available in most of the modes, a new tutorial and helpful on-screen indicators for lower difficulty levels, NHL 18 is at the very least more accommodating than previous editions. The impact of the Defensive Skill Stick...
