Sports 16 November 2017
A sports arcade game from the developers of popular MMO title EVE Online, intended for virtual reality devices. Sparc lets us take part in the eponymous sports discipline resembling the classic game of dodgeball. The players take static positions at the opposing ends of a long hallway and try to hit the opponent with the ball using motion controllers. Being stuck in one place doesn’t mean we can’t dodge by moving our body. Because of that and the realistic physics system, the ricochets from walls, floor and ceiling play a key role in the game, as they can be used to deceive opponents and increase the chance of hitting them. Sparc has been developed with multiplayer for two players in mind. The game also offers solo options, such as training, and social aspects, e.g. virtual spectators. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and requires virtual reality headset along with motion controllers that register the users’ gestures.

The players take on the roles of professional wrestlers from NXT and WWE leagues, and take part in encounters in the ring. A series of improvements were introduced into the combat system - above all, the wrestlers can make more moves now.

Among the available wrestlers, one will find Seth Rollins (depicted on the game's cover), Chris Jericho, Andre The Giant, John Cena, The Rock or the Bella sisters.

FIFA 18 (PC)
Sports 29 September 2017
The game is another installment in the FIFA series. Electronic Arts introduced a lot of important changes in this follow-up and those will probably constitute a real treat for all the fans of virtual soccer. What is especially noticeable, is the introduction of the Real Players Motion technology that governs the appearances, animations and behaviours of the in-game footballers. Although this technology encompasses mainly top players, the less-known footballers also behave in a more realistic manner, as the new system takes different factors into account, such as a footballer's height. The game brings a continuation to a story campaign from FIFA 17, embodied here by The Journey: Hunter Returns. FIFA 18 also brings a remodeled system of transfers in the career. The player is now capable of negotiating with clubs and particular footballers on their own. The FIFA Ultimate Team mode brings the Icon cards representing legendary footballers. All of this is complemented by the use of the Frostbite engine, which mainly powers the cut-scenes displayed both in The Journey mode and the regular career component.
Mutant Football League (PC)
Sports 31 October 2017
Developed by Digital Dreams Entertainment, Mutant Football League is a spiritual successor to a 1993 game under the same title released on Sega Mega Drive. The nuclear war, which took place years before the events presented in the game, has led to the extinction of the majority of human population. To make things even worse, the cataclysm has caused dead bodies to rise from their graves, demons to leave their underground lairs, and living creatures to mutate. The new inhabitants of the planet did not abandon numerous forms of entertainment, including the titular Mutant Football League – a parody of American football. Player’s goal is to win a season comprising 13 matches. When conventional methods fail, one can appeal to some dirty tricks like bribing the referee. Due to the nature of this sport, the matches can be very brutal. One can command the titular mutants, aliens, animated skeletons, battle droids, and football players that came straight from hell. The players can utilize a wide arsenal of weapons (featuring knuckle-dusters, battle-axes, chainsaws, and even grenades) along with numerous special abilities. Among the peculiar features of the game, one can find the system of traps, mines, lava pools and toxic clouds ever-present on the football field. Additionally, the changing weather system affects the game with its acid rains and violent storms.

Rugby League Live 4 (PC)
Sports 13 September 2017
Another game from the series aimed at fans of rugby. Big Ant Studios, the developer that works on the series since 2010, didn't make any big changes to the game except for improving the already existing mechanics and ideas even further. The players control rugby teams that appear in NRL (National Rugby League). We have more than 300 players from 100 teams. Additionally, the game also has the FanHub option, which allows the players to create their own teams, rugby players and even stadiums that can be later shared with other people. Rugby League Live 4 allows not only to control the players manually but also to create tactics or make important changes during a match. One of the new features that are available in the game is the new animations system. Motion capture allowed the developers to make new animations that weren't available anywhere else before, e.g. players can catch their enemies' ankles.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 (PC)
Sports 12 September 2017
Another annual entry in the popular soccer series by Konami. Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 develops the ideas from the previous game. Real Touch +, a new system that is responsible for how players handle a ball, now takes more body parts into account. Thanks to that we can see animations that are much more different from each other when players receive a ball, hit it with their heads, dribble etc. Another important change is that matches are now slower which makes the game a little more realistic. Additionally, there is also strategic dribbling which gives more control over the ball and improved set pieces. Besides classic game modes, PES 2018 also brings back Random Selection Match mode which now has more options. Also, the game offers an online co-op mode for two or three people. The graphics are much better when compared with the previous games which means that the game on particular platforms aren't that different from each other.
Dino Dini's Kick Off Revival (PC)
Sports 12 September 2017
An arcade football game, directly referencing the cult Kick Off series for Amiga computers in the 1980s and 1990s. The new version of the game was developed by Dino Dini, as commissioned by Sony. Dino Dini's Kick Off Revival is firmly grounded is the traditional mechanics of the series, while at the same time introducing a range of necessary upgrades. It's still a dynamic football match simulation with high difficulty level. To make things even harder, the ball is no longer automatically led by the player—keeping it requires extra work now. However, it provides for greater freedom when it comes to passing the ball or precise striking. At the same time, Dino Dini's Kick Off Revival still features its oldschool vibe thanks to the top-down view of the pitch (although other views are available) and a specific visual style—which is, however, fully 3D and much more detailed than 30 years earlier.
