I could literally write this review in one, perhaps harsh sentence. I won’t do that because that’s not very entertaining, is it? So I will endure writing this as I endured playing the game...[Read More]

Madden 18 review

I’m not a huge fan of Devin Wade, well I certainly wasn’t at the start of Longshot, the new Career mode in Madden 18. Life wasn’t treating him to well, but his attitude really got on...[Read More]
