PGA Tour 2K23 PC preview

I got to spend some time with a preview version of 2K’s upcoming PGA Tour 2K23 golf game.

Veteran Canadian outfit HB Studios, having cut their teeth developing many EA Sports titles, including PGA Tour Golf 2008, released The Golf Club in 2014. This was a fresh taste of video game golf following EA Sports’ dominance with their long-running PGA Tour franchise. Continue reading PGA Tour 2K23 PC preview

Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch review

Nintendo’s Splatoon 3 offers another instalment of the surprisingly kid-friendly third-person puzzle/shooter.

Originally a Nintendo Wii U game, with 2015’s Splatoon, the sequel, Splatoon 2, was released in 2017 as a Nintendo Switch exclusive. This third iteration is more of the same, which is a good thing as the concept is rather unique and the games are fun to play. Continue reading Splatoon 3 Nintendo Switch review

Madden NFL 23 PlayStation 5 review

EA Sports’ American football franchise takes to the field, once more, with Madden NFL 23.

Saints Row PC review

The Saints are back in this reboot/prequel, of the over-the-top open-world crime series simply titled Saints Row.

Back in 2006 my Xbox 360 was seriously lacking any Grand Theft Auto fun, right up until the release of the original Saints Row. Whilst it was a solid game, Volition, the Saints Row developer wasn’t able to replicate Rockstar’s subtle, tongue-in-cheek humour. Rather than be pigeonholed as a GTA clone, the Saints Row series veered off into the realm of the absurd. Lacking the satire and grittiness of the Grand Theft Auto games, for me, the Saints Row series became childish and, well, stupid. Continue reading Saints Row PC review
