Flatout 4 Total Insanity Review

To say that a number of the previous Flatout titles were a disappointment would be an understatement, so heading into Flatout 4, I wasn't particularly enthusiastic about what I was about to play. When compared to other Flatout games in the franchise, the fourth iteration does a great job to cleaning up some of the problems present, but also introduces a few new ones. Flatout 4 is an enjoyable experience, but won't be for everyone.

MLB The Show 17 Review

I'm not a huge baseball fan to be sure, but ever since my local Toronto Blue Jays have decided to be good, I've paid more attention to them, and the sport, than ever before. With a slight appreciation for baseball - the lesser of the main sports in my opinion - I knew the next step was giving the ultimate baseball video game a go. With that, I jumped into MLB The Show 17 fully expecting to be in way over my head. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised.

I've seen numerous people accurately describe this as, "A great game as long as you didn't pay for it." While the majority of this review will focus on that statement, lets kick it off by looking at what comes on the card!
