From the research I did before tackling Handball 21, I quickly learned those who follow the sport are niche but passionate. With simulations game, these would the people Handball 21 expects to target. Unfortunately, I cannot say confidently that this game is ready to be the genre flag bearer handball game the sport deserves. Handball 17 laid a fantastic foundation and the latest iteration certainly builds on top of it. Handball 21 appears as a solid step in the appropriate direction but still requires some work before its ready to be the premiere handball experience. Those who were a fan of the previous or just want to scratch the handball itch, I do recommend Handball 21. The game is in fact fun to play. Just understand it is not an innovator of its genre.

The thing is, sports titles have gone in many different directions since their incarnation, whether that’s being made for pure pay-to-win monetization or simulation. While drastically different, they share in the fact each one is geared to a specific audience and thus the levels of ‘fun’ differ from person to person.
No matter which way you spin in, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 is an excellent remake from top to bottom. The levels look great, the soundtrack is nostalgic yet modern, and the gameplay brings you back to sitting on your living room floor late at night playing with friends.
