There’s so much potential sitting there with the series, it just needs some heavy pressure to become the diamond it hopes to become. Hopefully, with the hype the game has generated, it can get the investments needed to make a bigger step forward in 2020.

5.8 / 10.0 - Axis Football 2019
Oct 9, 2019

Axis Football as a franchise has so much potential to be a great indie series, but with so limited on-field changes between 18 and 19, it feels more like a lost year than anything else.

6 / 10.0 - Madden NFL 20
Aug 1, 2019

Madden 20 is a game that will divide fans right down the middle. Fans who love MUT and have been getting the attention for all these years, will come back and really love what they have.

4.2 / 5.0 - MLB 19: The Show
Mar 29, 2019

Overall, MLB The Show 19 is nearly perfect with the vision that San Diego Studios had. If they just made something different in Franchise mode, then it would be a true masterpiece. Even then this is still the best baseball game to date.
