Annual sporting update season is upon us once more, with Madden NFL 18 and F1 2017 being first out the gate.

With an all-new story mode, Madden NFL 18 is said to be the most accessible yet, gaining a 9/10 from GameSpot, a 4.5 from US Gamer and an 8.25 from GameInformer.

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.
