EA Sports PGA Tour

Players will be able to hit the links with EA Sports PGA Tour.

This title strives for authenticity, with more than 30 courses, stunning graphics with the Frostbite graphics engine, and Pure Strike technology that ensures every hit hits the mark. The title is also Home of the Majors, really driving the experience home – no pun intended.

Featuring deep swing mechanics and incredibly detailed courses, EA Sports PGA Tour sets a new gold standard for golf games. The title is every bit as deep as one wants it to be, with RPG elements that encourage replayability and self-improvement.EA Sports PGA Tour Review, Casey Scheld

EA Sports PGA Tour is available for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Purchasing options can be found on the official EA Sports PGA Tour website.

WWE 2K23

Visual Concepts and 2K Games continue to lead the pro wrestling genre with the release of WWE 2K23.

The MyFACTION, MyGM, Showcase, Universe, MyRISE career mode, and creation suite players have come to know and love have made their return, but new to this release is the WarGames match type, a recreation of John Cena’s career, and revamped referee voiceovers.

Ultimately, WWE 2K23 has something for everyone. Whether you’re a casual wrestling fan looking to jump into the squared circle for a quick match, or a die hard WWE fan looking to create and brand your own WWE Universe, each game mode brings something new and exciting to the table – even if the depth is somewhat lacking. The gameplay and combat is the best the franchise has seen for over a decade, the customization suite offers near endless possibilities, and the community content portal is incredible. All this, but I still can’t help but feel the game was so close to something more.WWE 2K23 Review, Blaine Smith
