Review: WWE 2K19

by James Gournaliston October 14, 2018
If you ask me, the necessity for accurate and photorealistic facsimiles of real people are getting in the way of the fun in modern sports games. I remember the days of Pro Wrestling on the NES and Sensible Soccer when the primary concern in sports game development was making a great gameplay system rather than […]

Review: NBA 2K19

by Nazih Fareson September 23, 2018
Beyond its gameplay, rarely free of flaws but increasingly refined every year, I admire the NBA 2K franchise for its depth and diversity of game modes. Last year, NBA 2K18 fully embraced the changes but brought issues with it like the Hub and some content removed from its predecessor. And so for this year’s edition, […]

Aiming introduce new features such as new ages, a loyalty and governor system, as well as enriching the game with new civilizations. Will this expansion […]

Review: WWE 2K18

by Nazih Fareson October 29, 2017
Like every year at the same time, the 2K Sports team launch its annual licensed WWE game on console, and for the first time simultaneously on PC. While promising some new changes and additions to the core game, will it be enough to feel like Yuke’s Visual Concepts is different from previous years or not? […]

Review: NBA 2K18

by Nazih Fareson September 24, 2017
Another month of September and here’s come another version of Visual Concept’s award winning basketball franchise, out now with NBA 2K18. For several years now, Visual Concept has evolved its prized franchise and manages to come back every time with new fresh ideas. Not particularly perfect ideas, some even completely pointless, but we can always […]

Review: XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

by Nazih Fareson September 21, 2017
Ah XCOM. One of my favorite strategy game after the Civilization series, Firaxis’ hit turn-based title redefined a lot of the genre after the release of XCOM 2 (which we reviewed back in 2016). While most of us were left wanting more, even after the couple of small DLC releases including Anarchy’s Children, Alien Hunters […]

Review: Civilization VI

by Nazih Fareson October 25, 2016
Out since October 21, Firaxis and 2K Games’ prized 4X strategy game is back to the roots, with Sid Meier’s Civilization VI putting you once again in the shoes of a leader, as you build an entire civilization. This new installment is a major facelift in the franchise, with  changes everywhere, from the game mechanics […]

Review: WWE 2K17

by Nazih Fareson October 23, 2016
While most sport entertainment give their fans a choice, wrestling fans dont have the luxury of choosing between two competing licenses each year, but it doesn’t stop anyone to wait for the next WWE 2K. This year, WWE 2K16 is part once again in following the trend of its predecessors, from the good part to […]

Review: Mafia III

by Nazih Fareson October 18, 2016
Let’s start very easily with a quick statement: While it’s quite a niche series, I myself was eagerly waiting for Mafia III. Admittedly considered as a revival of a cult license after 6 years of silence, this was not an easy task for 2K’s newest studio, Hangar 13, led by Haden Blackman (worked on games […]

Review: NBA 2K17

by Nazih Fareson October 4, 2016
Another year, another NBA 2K game emerges. After being long desired, almost forgetting to mention it to the point I was to think that 2K Sports and Visual Concepts had something to hide, NBA 2K17 unrolled its sleeves and flexed its biceps, just a few weeks before the release date. Finally with the game in hand, the new year’s […]
