While the lack of major new features is a minor disappointment, it doesn’t take away from the fact that ‘MLB The Show 2023’ is the best version of the game yet.
Take it to the virtual hoop this season as Mat Langford lauds “NBA 2K23” as a “must-have!” Read about it in the BBP! Holiday Gift Guide!
In the spirit of the season, Mat Langford looks back at some of his favourite retro games, and why they still hold up today.
Frostpunk: Complete Collection gives you complete control over rebuilding a civilization torn apart by an ice age.
Though frustrating at times, our Mat Langford says that Green Hell on PlayStation delivers a story well worth playing.
Hood: Outlaws and Legends has familiar and interesting combat, but its adherence to both the PvE and PvP aspects leave it somewhat floundering at both.
MLB The Show ’21 remains the best baseball video gaming experience you can have.
NASCAR Heat 5 will quench that racing thirst for anyone who is looking for some fast-paced, NASCAR action.
The Last of Us: Part II is a masterpiece and one of the best games of our generation.
‘Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden’ is a winner with cool sneak mechanics, smooth transitions to turn-based battle, and addictive gameplay.
2019’s ‘RTTS’ is the best iteration of the mode yet, combining the gameplay that ‘MLB The Show’ is known for with strategic RPG elements make for an engaging, immersive experience that hasn’t been available in any baseball game thus far.
Battle Group 2 is fundamentally sound and fun at times, but it’s a short game with little replayability, making for a great bite-sized adventure better suited for those looking for a quick play with little long-term commitment.
