Franchise Hockey Manager 3 isn't a game for everyone. If you're someone who's more into the on-ice action as opposed to the management – no pun intended – then this may not be what you want to play. That being said, those who are already fans of the franchise or want to know more about what a management sim is like need to look no further than Franchise Hockey Manager 3.

6 / 10.0 - Disc Jam
Mar 25, 2017

Disc Jam is a nice base for something big in the future. It has a simple-to-grasp control scheme, fun and accessible gameplay, and even takes more strategy to succeed either solo or on a team than one would expect from a game like this. Sadly, it often feels too bare to spend as much time in it as other options out there.

Mar 27, 2017

It has the recipe for success in the indie sports market, and could become one of the hits of 2017.

9 / 10.0 - MLB 17: The Show
Mar 29, 2017

MLB The Show 17 is a great installment, and no matter how long it's been since you last picked up The Show — even if you still play The Show 16 — this game is worth the pick up.

6 / 10.0 - NBA Playgrounds
May 18, 2017

NBA Playgrounds has potential, but it just leaves too much in the locker room to be considered anything more than unpolished. At least there's no micro-transactions in this one.

At a cost of $29.99, there just isn't enough of a potential return on investment to justify Snow Moto Racing Freedom. The game wasn't bad to the point of being unplayable, it was just boring. And that can be almost worse than being unplayable.

8 / 10.0 - The Golf Club 2
Jun 27, 2017

The Golf Club 2 comes out swinging to show they took feedback from the first installment, and improves on every aspect of the original. From the customization options to the stellar game of golf on the course, The Golf Club 2 is a near perfect simulation golf game. The only thing keeping it from being the best ever are a few technical hiccups and a dry presentation offering.

8.5 / 10.0 - DiRT 4
Jul 3, 2017

On the track it's an incredible experience that any racing fan would enjoy, especially with the Your Stage feature adding extra hours of rally-racing fun. Off the track, though, Dirt 4 comes up short with features to keep you entertained outside the vehicle.

Canadian Football is an okay foundation for a series that Canuck Play hopes will become an annual franchise. It offers glimpses of fun and is sure to see plenty of updates in the future, but it's a game that just lacks enough polish and substance to justify a price tag even as cheap as $15.99.

6.5 / 10.0 - Axis Football 2017
Aug 14, 2017

It's not going to make you completely forget about getting Madden this year, but Axis Football 17 does a solid job of giving PC football fans who've been yearning for a fun experience an option to pick up.
