Tracks – Toybox Edition is just the type of game to sit down and have a hot drink with and let yourself go for a while. It's like reading an easy book - just enough to capture your mind, but it makes you feel good and distracts you from everything else going on. Whether you're older with fond memories of toy trains or intend to pick this up for a new, young player to have a virtual toy, Tracks is worth it just for its feel-good nature alone.
Overall, Pure Pool is a relaxing, challenging little sports title that'll drag you in even if you're not a heavy pool player. It's perfectly accessible to anyone who's new to the sport, but also challenging enough for more advanced players to also be kept engaged as they strike their way through each match. At only $15, it's worth the pickup.
If it wasn’t obvious already, my time in virtual Colorado via American Truck Simulator was most enjoyable. After the beauty that was the Utah expansion and also the Idaho expansion, I expected Colorado to be “more of the same” (in a good way). But to my surprise, SCS went above and beyond with this expansion to deliver what I think is the most beautiful state to date in American Truck Simulator.
Gear. Club Unlimited 2 needs to be parked in a garage and just left there. If Eden really wants to turn this into something, head back to the blueprints and build something that can really compete. Otherwise, just take a detour.
Train Sim World 2 comes with a decent helping of long-form missions that offer a good balance of challenge and complexity. It's simple enough for anyone to get into, but engaging enough for a train enthusiast to enjoy. While there are some quirks in the track, this is the most polished railroad simulator I've ever played.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is by all means the most complete out-of-the-box package that out of any flight sim ever. It's advancements have pushed the genre as a whole to an entirely new standard with the promise of ongoing support solidifying its rank as the defacto flight sim for the years to come. While it has its quirks, this really is "As real as it gets".
Despite trying to capture a more realistic skateboarding system, Skater XL's high points are brought down by some rough areas which could use some work. With more updates and fine-tuning, it does at least have the potential to be an XL package rather than an XS snoozefest.
