MLB 15 The Show review: Infield fly

When I elected to review MLB 14 The Show last year, I thought I might be in over my head. I hadn’t played any of the recent entries in the series and I didn’t think I would fare especially well within the game, regardless of how well put together it was. Thankfully, my worries were misplaced, and I found myself immersed in a sports game for the first time in years.

I was hoping to have a similar experience with MLB 15 The Show, but after spending hours with San Diego Studio’s sequel, I have begun to see through the veneer of the improved visuals and have found a game that feels more like a step backwards than a home run.

Project Cars Release Date

The most gorgeous racing game we’ve ever seen is finally launching on May 7th

Save for Forza Horizon 2, my personal game of the year in 2014, I have been sorely disappointed by the racing game lineup of the new generation. Need for Speed: Rivals felt like a step back after the incredible Most Wanted, Driveclub didn’t live up to the lofty expectations, and The Crew was all but broken at launch.

Maybe the endlessly delayed Project CARS, which has finally gone gold, will put the genre back on track.

Battlefield Hardline review: Line of duty

I’m sick of playing the same first-person shooter campaign year after year. No matter how many explosions go off or which celebrity tries to take over the world, I just don’t think I could handle another world war.

That’s why Battlefield Hardline is my favorite console shooter on the market right now — it’s a different beast entirely. More →
