– Available for: PS4 and Xbox One
– Rating: 4.5/5
– Review: From fearless sliding tackles, to holding up the ball under pressure, to the heavenly wave of pride that comes with out-thinking a defender, everything about this game feels fantastic. The graphics on the other hand, especially the ones dealing with facial animations could have used more work, but overall this is an excellent and highly recommended for soccer fans.
4. Forza Motorsport 6
– Genre: Racing

– Rating: 2/5

– Rating: 3.5/5
– Reviews: Velocity expertly straddles two different genres. The story is narrated through a crisp comic-book panels, but if you’d rather be shooting stuff, there are times it can seem superfluous. Overall, it manages to make up for this with its unique style, confidence, and explosive pace.
