As it is with every Spring, a number of baseball games get released on many different platforms, websites, and App Stores. Facebook is not excluded from this, as WGT Baseball: MLB gives you a chance to get in touch with your inner Brad-Pitt-in-Moneyball ...assuming you have one.

Victory Baseball Team Review: Victory Baseball Team fails to score a run in a lackluster outing.

Apr 11, 2012

While simulation-style and arcade games make up most of the sports game population, there's always been a niche market for management titles. A few of those titles went on to find modest amounts of success, but the majority have been forgettable or outright bad. At first glance, Victory Baseball Team appears to be a bit more polished than many of its relatives. Upon further inspection, this game strikes out every single time it steps up to the plate.

OJO Agent Review: OJO Agent is Jerry Maguire's kind of Facebook game

Apr 10, 2012

Has it really been 16 years since Jerry Maguire? Apparently it doesn't matter. Cuba Gooding, Jr. is more likely to star in direct-to-DVD flops than Academy Award fodder and Tom Cruise may content himself with a movie a year, but apparently we're still as fascinated with sports agents as ever. OJO Agent hopes to cash in on this fascination by allowing players to sample almost every aspect of a sports agent's life--aside from, you know, having a change of heart and making up with Renée Zellweger. And for the most part, it does its job well.

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) Review: AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) is as fun as it is embarrassing to say out loud

Mar 6, 2012

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) (henceforth known as "the game," because seriously...) is a spin-off of an award-winning PC game that welcomes you to the future... a future Boston, Massachusetts, that is, where the sport of B.A.S.E. jumping is now illegal and participating is just another way you can stick it to the man. Awesome... or is that supposed to be gnarly? It's been a while.

CricVille Review: Take a swing at social cricket

Feb 8, 2012

Indian developer Zapak has launched its newest endeavor into social games with the release of CricVille on Facebook. A sports management game with moderate active play, the app is all about running a successful cricket franchise. Nevertheless, it’s a design that is strikingly familiar. Looking beyond the “Ville” tag popularized by Zynga, its core play and even aesthetic have been seen almost verbatim in soccer/football apps of the past.

ESPN Return Man Review: Still ready for some football? Then Return Man has your fix

Feb 7, 2012

If there's a single aspect of American football that most viewers can enjoy regardless of whether they know what a quarterback actually does, it's those frantic seconds when a return-man catches the ball and makes a mad dash for the goal line. Those movie-worthy moments take center stage in ESPN's new Return Man for Facebook, which punts all of the statistic heavy complexities of other social football-based games in favor of a riveting experience that feels something like Frogger with shoulder pads. The result is a football game that appeals to almost everyone.

Superflick Review: Superflick tries to capture the Flick Kick spirit, but misses the mark

Feb 3, 2012

In spite of many iOS titles now exploring gameplay depth on par with console experiences, it’s still great to have those go-to games you can pull out for a quick fix. Superflick by Ruma Studios offers players a tight package that’s easy to pick up and play, but it is, unfortunately, just as easy to put down and forget about.
