The best snowboarding game for a long time, with an excellent open world environment… and some very odd, and unnecessary, flaws.

Either Football Manager needs a complete overhaul or it should stop producing yearly sequels, because this year’s one is the most inconsequential yet.
The forward momentum from last year’s improvements already seems to be faltering, as the weight of bugs and glitches ruin many of the new features.
Rather than being PlayStation VR’s killer app this updated racer lays bare its limitations in embarrassing fashion, at least until the PS4 Pro comes along.
The Journey is an almost unqualified success, but in terms of on-pitch action FIFA 17 is comfortably outclassed by PES 2017.
The best Forza Horizon so far, and thanks to its huge open world and infectious sense of fun one of the best arcade racers of the current gen.
More a refinement than a revolution, but this builds on the achievements of last year’s game to ensure one of the finest sports games ever created.
A bad idea poorly realised, it’s hard to argue that Kick Off has any place in the modern world and this badly made revival seems to prove it.
One of the best driving sims of the new generation, and although it still lacks content in some areas the console versions are just as good as the PC.
A microscopic improvement on Football Manager 2015, that is as addictive and engrossing as ever but seems to have run out of steam in terms of new ideas.
The worst FIFA game for over half a decade, and clearly inferior to PES 2016. And yet it's still not a bad game in itself, with some welcome new features.
Pro Evolution Soccer is finally back to its best, in what is undoubtedly one of the greatest sports games of all-time.
The best Forza Motorsport so far and arguably the best driving simulator on consoles, with stunning visuals and a mountain of highly compelling content.
The racing and visuals are good, but the scarcity of modes and options means this is another year where the official F1 tie-in barely makes the starting grid.
A superb multiplayer game that takes a very simple premise and crafts from it one of the best competitive arcade games in years.
Not the revival Carmageddon veterans will have been hoping for, and far too glitchy and unrefined to draw in more casual fans of vehicular violence.
A viable alternative to the old guard of driving simulators, that values freedom of choice and gritty realism over needless feature creep.
Another uninspiring episode of nothing but filler and hopes for the future, although that's as much a criticism of episodic content as it is the game itself.
An odd mix of Test Drive Unlimited, Assassin's Creed, and Destiny. And while the combination is tastier than it sounds it also has an awful lot of lumps in it.
An uninspiring start to the season, that even fans of the show will find stilted and tedious. Although they can still foster high hopes for later episodes.
