New to Casey Powell Lacrosse 18 is the ability to create custom stadiums and logos for your team. On top of that, Lacrosse 18 features comprehensive player and team creators, allowing you to put yourself and your team right into the thick of the biggest competitions of all.
Anyone who has seen a game of lacrosse will know that it’s most notable for its unique faceoff battles, quick transitions between offense and defense, and the brutal stick checks players deliver to stop the offense. At the same time, the raw skill involved in manoeuvring the stick to take quality shots on goal makes for highlight reel action.
Casey Powell Lacrosse 18’s practice modes, manual substitutions, enhanced shot selection options, and improved stick and body check balance give lacrosse fans all the tools they need to play the game the way they’d play the sport.
At the end of the day, Casey Powell Lacrosse 18is a serviceable title working with a limited budget for a niche audience. While I could call it out for many faults compared to competitors working with much larger budgets and licenses, at the end of the day I’m not the target audience. That said, for lacrosse fans both here and overseas, it really is a choice between this and, well… nothing.
While like all sports, Lacrosse may not be for everyone but you should really look into it. Especially if you like Hockey. With multiple modes and solid fast paced gameplay, Casey Powell’s Lacrosse will keep you occupied for either hours at a time or simply for a few quick exhibition matches with friends before heading off to do something else for the evening.
