Annual sporting update season is upon us once more, with Madden NFL 18 and F1 2017 being first out the gate.
IGN meanwhile went with an 8.6. “The shift to Frostbite doesn’t refresh Madden NFL 18’s gameplay much, but Longshot is a memorable single-player mode,” was their verdict.
Codemasters’ F1 2017 has gained an even steadier sting of 9/10s, with most critics calling it the best instalment ever delivered. The Telegraph opted for full marks, while The Sixth Axis felt it was worth a 9/10. “From adding more R&D options to the career to having classic cars and invitational events help break up the long racing calendar, there’s a lot to keep you engaged here,” they said.
Plenty of other new releases are vying for attention over bank holiday, with the biggest by far being the less-than-full-price Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
While it has received a few 7/10s (hello, VideoGamer) the majority of review scores are 8s and 9s. God is a Geek went with full marks, meanwhile. “The game is yet another masterpiece from Naughty Dog, and it goes to show we don’t need Nathan Drake to make a great adventure greater,” their reviewer stated.
As you may be aware, pre-orders came with Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy. This means the classic platformer bounces back on PS4 this week, available for £11.99.
