Madden NFL 18 Review
Stories in sports games. We’ve been talking about the idea for over a decade and it’s just in the last couple of years we’ve seen the two big sports developers (EA & 2K) start investing in it. Last year both FIFA (from EA) and NBA 2K (from 2K Sports) made stories a huge pillar in their annual releases. This year, EA Sports is following up the success of Alex Hunter in “The Journey” with Longshot, a new story mode in Madden NFL 18.
NBA Playgrounds does a solid job of filling the void left by the NBA Street and NBA Jam series. There is a deep roster of players, and the game's cartoonish visuals look great, but the bare-bones online play and frustrating gameplay mechanics sometimes make the game feel more like a chore rather than an enjoyable experience.
Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings
Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings is simply a fun game. There is something here for you whether your looking to find a non licensed baseball game with some depth, or just looking for a quick fun game to pick up every now and then. The lack of online functionality hinders it from reaching its full potential but the humorous tone and simple controls ensure the offline experience is very enjoyable.
