Madden NFL 15 Review

August 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

I played and reviewed last year’s Madden NFL 25 on PS3 when it released. That game later came to PS4 and Xbox One, but as I didn’t get a PS4 until May, I didn’t experience last year’s Madden game on the current gen systems. So the first thing I noticed when getting into a game on Madden NFL 15 was just how much better it [...]

EA Sports UFC Review

June 27, 2014 // 1 Comment

Let me preface this review by saying that not only am I a huge MMA fan in general but a pretty diehard fan of MMA games in general.  So much so that I actually downloaded the EA Sports UFC demo on both XBOX One and PS4.  XBOX One because it was available hours before it’s PS4 counterpart and I simply didn’t want to wait and PS4 [...]

Madden NFL 25 Review

August 23, 2013 // 1 Comment

The 25th anniversary of the acclaimed Madden series is upon us and the game is in sort of a rough spot currently. Madden 25 hits stores on the 27th of August for current generation consoles PS3 and Xbox 360, and this version of the game is running on Infinity Engine 2.0 (an improvement over last year’s great new engine). However, there is also [...]

NCAA Football 14 Review

It’s July, and besides fireworks that can only mean one thing… a new NCAA Football is upon us. It’s hard to believe, but thankfully it is indeed almost time once again for the greatest of all sports: college football. The new season begins at the end of August, and that gives us plenty of time to run through the upcoming season controlling [...]

Madden NFL 13 (Wii U) Review

November 25, 2012 // 0 Comments

I reviewed Madden NFL 13 back in August and scored it a 4/5. It is a superb football game. I’m not going to write out a long review for the Wii U version because it doesn’t need it. If you already own Madden NFL 13, then you don’t need to purchase it again for the Wii U. Unfortunately, it isn’t the definitive version of [...]

Madden NFL 13 Review

August 24, 2012 // 1 Comment

It’s August, which means a new season of football is almost upon us, and it also means it’s time for a new edition of the yearly sports juggernaut Madden NFL. I had the pleasure of reviewing Madden 12, and enjoyed last years edition (my first NFL game in years) enough that I scored it 4 stars. Some folks disagreed with that score, in [...]

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Review

October 11, 2011 // 5 Comments

I’ll admit up front that I absolutely hate basketball, and that I could care less about any basketball simulation game. That’s why I’ve loved the NBA Jam series since I was a kid playing it on the Genesis, or SNES, or in an arcade. NBA Jam strips the game down to its most basic element without having rules (with the exception of goal [...]

Today we’ll be having a look at NCAA Football 12, the newest edition in the long running college football series.
