My Horse and Me 2
My Horse and Me 2

Sports 31 October 2008

A sequel to the sports-simulation game that focuses on horses and horsemanship. This time around, we assume the role of a teenager who dreams of a professional jockey career. In order to accomplish her goal, she arrives at the farm of her uncle’s, a racehorse breeder, but it quickly turns out that the facility goes through some financial difficulties and its personnel is not exactly qualified. The only way to save the stable from bankruptcy is to win a prestigious competition in Kentucky. My Horse and Me 2, much like its predecessor, focuses primarily on realism, offering an exclusive license of the FEI, a global equestrian sports organization. In the title, we take part in a number of varied mini-games that improve our horse’s skills. We also have to take care of the animal and even beautify it in order to please the demanding jury. One of the title’s advantages is the emphasis on creating a specific bond between the rider and his mount.

WWE 2K18
WWE 2K18

Sports 17 October 2017

Another installment in a series of sport games devoted to wrestling and released annually by 2K Games. The players take on the roles of professional wrestlers from NXT and WWE leagues, and take part in encounters in the ring. A series of improvements were introduced into the combat system - above all, the wrestlers can make more moves now. Fighting is not all about exchange of attacks, as the player often brings the opponent down, throws them at the mat, or even out of the ring, in order to continue the fight closer to the audience or in the backstage. Among the available wrestlers, one will find Seth Rollins (depicted on the game's cover), Chris Jericho, Andre The Giant, John Cena, The Rock or the Bella sisters. WWE 2K18 offers plenty of game modes, both singleplayer and multiplayer ones. MyCareer is the most important of them, as the player leads a wrestler of their choice to fame and money through subsequent victories.

Sports 15 September 2017

NHL 18 is another installment in the sports game series developed by EA Sports – a division of Electronic Arts. The gameplay revolves around the same mechanics as the previous installments, trying to faithfully represent ice hockey games; however, the developers implemented some major changes. One of them is the Defensive Skill Stick system, ensuring better control over a player and the hockey stick during defensive maneuvers. Opponents have a wider range of available moves making the game smoother. Also, the AI poses a bigger challenge – from now on, our teammates are better at taking positions and defensive actions, while the AI players are more difficult to defeat. Moreover, NHL 18 introduces the 3 vs 3 mode with slightly different rules – with fewer players on the field, one has more space to perform maneuvers on the ice. The game also allows us to play more conventional modes, such as PvP and both local and online co-op.

Sports 29 September 2015

Another edition of an annually released sports game series devoted to basketball, developed jointly by Visual Concepts and the publisher of the franchise, 2K Games. NBA 2K16 employs the well-proven mechanics of the series, offering user-friendly controls that achieve the perfect balance between simulation and arcade, as well as the traditional wide array of play modes for both single and multiplayer. The main game mode is MyCareer, prepared under the eye of a famous American movie director Spike Lee. This ensured a compelling story enriched with subplots more or less connected to sport. The creators also introduced a bunch of gameplay improvements, mostly focused around player control. Moreover, graphics was enhanced, becoming much more detailed - including things like the players’ shoes. You can also appreciate more detailed and better animated crowds.

A sandbox extreme winter sports simulation game by Ubisoft, set in faithfully recreated regions of the Alps and Alaska, divided into several open-world sectors. There you can go skiing or snowboarding, or even take to the skies with a paraglider or a wingsuit. The gameplay is purely arcade-like, so you need to both ride fast and execute spectacular tricks. During the game you can try to beat a wide range of challenges such as time trials or stunts. Steep also places emphasis on the social aspect, thanks to which you can create your own challenges and make them available to other players. The system is complemented by online rankings, although you can forego the rivalry and simply enjoy the wintry landscapes.

Lucinda Green’s Equestrian Challenge
Lucinda Green’s Equestrian Challenge

Sports 12 June 2007

An equestrian sports simulator developed by IR Gurus. Lucinda Green, a six-time Badminton Horse Trials winner, is the game's face and she is also players' mentor – she informs about the sports' rules, how to take care of a horse and how to train with them. Before we try to win, the first thing that we need to do is to create our character – we can equip them with various accessories and outfits (we can do a similar thing with our horse). In addition to that we also need to complete a practical test from the knowledge given by Green. After that we can participate in championships where in order to win we need to not only have a good time and style of our passage but also a presentation of a rider and their horse. The graphics in Lucinda Green's Equestrian Challenge aren't very detailed, however, the way in which the game is presented can remind of a TV transmission of a real equestrian competitions – this is because they are presented from a few different cameras. It should also be mentioned that the game was developed for people of all ages and with different skill levels – thanks to that the game can be enjoyed by beginners and more advanced players.

Sports 04 November 2016

A simplified version of yet another edition of the most popular football manager simulation game by Sports Interactive, and a title half-way between Football Manager 2017 and its mobile edition, Football Manager Mobile 2017. In the game, we assume the role of a manager of one of more than 2,5 thousand football clubs from over 100 different leagues, trying to provide our team with both sports and financial successes. Football Manager Touch 2017 follows the path set by its predecessor and offers a much faster gameplay than that of the major installments of the series, at the same time being more complex than the mobile version. Such effect was achieved thanks to abandoning many business aspects of the gameplay and focusing mainly on transfers and match tactics. Compared to its predecessor, the new edition is characterized by a number of enhancements in graphics and mechanics as well as the previously unavailable multiplayer mode.

Sports 28 October 2014

Another edition of a popular wrestling simulator, developed annually since the release of 2002's WWE Raw. After the liquidation of THQ, the original publisher of the game, Take Two, became the official owner of the franchise. The new edition was created as a result of cooperation between Yuke's (the creators of the previous editions) and the Visual Concepts studio, the developer of the NBA 2K series. WWE 2K15 combines the best mechanics developed over the years with next-gen visuals, offering completely new game modes. The controls were modified, so that they are more intuitive, and the game features even more moves for the player to perform. However, the largest change brought by this edition lies in the visual aspect. Thanks to the new motion-capture technology, more detailed character models, improved graphics, animations, lighting effects, and substantially richer commentary, the new edition highlights the series successful debut on the 8th generation of consoles.
