Out of the Park Baseball 17

My time with Out of the Park Baseball 17 was like a trip to the ballpark, except when I shouted that the pitcher should be taken out, somebody listened, and that was a great feeling.

Football Manager 2014

Like Paul Scholes, Football Manager continues to trundle on, earning respect throughout the business by doing a tough, workmanlike job. The hundreds of changes this year are mostly small ones that only dedicated series veterans will notice, but they add up to make a difference. FM2014 is a refined, tactically-rich game which gives you countless tools to play with in an infinite sporting sandbox. There's still some things that have to be done until it can be described as "polished" -most notably breaking EA's stranglehold over exclusive club logo and player likeness licensing - but the revamped layouts and excellent help system make this the easiest Football Manager to digest for some time.

FootLOL: Epic Fail League

Everything feels so shallow because of this, nothing hooks the player in for hours on end, instead serving as a timewaster for a few minutes before finding something else to do. Seeing as this game is available on mobile phones that would be the ideal platform to play while waiting for a flight or bus. A peculiar enjoyment can be earned with the insane powerups alone, and the soccer field provides the player with a playground to throw them all about. That enjoyment is fleeting, as the fact you're tackling brain dead AI will quickly settle in and difficulty, aside from the arbitrary bonuses, is nullified.
