    "NBA 2K18 is simply not worth the purchase. The gameplay itself is not enjoyable and they don't seem to do anything about hackers. The NBA 2K franchise just seems to get worse and worse each year. "

    "Spintires is a sandbox in the truest sense of the term. There's not much of an objective, other than to move logs around a map. Sounds boring, right? It's anything but. This is the kind of game I love, where stories happen organically and the fun is emergent. You're not led around by the hand and shown the flashy CGI, you're left to do whatever you think is fun. And by the time you're pulling out a tractor-trailor from the mud that you brought in to pull a smaller tractor-trailor out of the mud, itself stuck trying to pull out a truck...you'll be having a blast. Enjoy!"

    "While I guess this is an okay game for poker fans, this is most definitely as far away as it gets from simulation games. Even purely for poker I wouldn't call it a poker sim. As cartoony as it gets. Again might be fun for some, but definitely not something you want if you're looking for a sim game."

    "My uncle is a Formula One racer, so I know a bit or two about racing -- and have been lucky enough to accompany him in his ride. All I can say is that whoever designed this "simulation" has probably never raced in their life. The physics are completely off, and the tracks do not resemble their real-world counterparts at all. Wait on Forza Motorsport 7 for them to work out the kinks!"
