Sure, Mr. Woods has had his share of controversy over the years, but EA sports hasn’t dropped the Woods PGA Tour title, and with good reason. This game is loaded with hours of fun that any golf lover will have a hard time putting down. This is 100% compatible with Microsoft’s Kinect as well as Playstation’s Move device.
With the baseball season come and gone, fans still want to live out their dreams of being a professional baseball player and getting that no-hitter that perhaps their team wasn’t able to. MLB2K12 stands out from its previous releases by developer’s drastically improving graphics and gameplay. This is definitely the best MLB2K game that has been released to date.
I’ll be honest, I’ve spent hours playing this game already and I’ve only had it for about a week. It’s just so delightfully addicting that I have a hard time putting it down. The graphics are breathtaking and the gameplay mechanics make it feel fluid and realistic. I definitely recommend this game!
With the mass releases of American football games, it sometimes seems that soccer fans are left on the backburner. Luckily, Konami holds soccer fans in their hearts and has released a soccer game that is amazingly well done. The AI engine in this game is superb, so even if you’re not able to play online, you can still have a tough competition playing against the computer.
This is hands down, the most realistic NBA game that you can buy. 2K Sports have really outdone themselves with this release and it certainly shows. The graphics are simply stunning; the gameplay is so fluid that you can almost feel the basketball in your hands. If you’re a fan of NBA or basketball games in general, this is an absolute MUST buy!
