Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn

Shaquille O'Neal may have stepped out of the limelight, Big Deez Productions brought it upon themselves to bring Big Daddy in for more beat 'em up action. With a massive enough following to warrant his own line of videogames, A Legend Reborn returns Shaq to his crimefighting ways with new combos and bosses to defeat. The first game from Big Deez, it doesn't seem as if they stuck the landing. Competent as its controls are, A Legend Reborn slips into tedium because of its repetitive missions and dull storyline. Still, a treat for 90s nostalgia, it has a Provisional PlayScore of 6.29

Let's be honest, anything from Codemasters automatically gets a star for approval. But, on the other hand, Onrush is no ordinary racing game. Playing more like team-based murder on wheels, Onrush turns the usual racer on its head, with modes that focus more on takedowns, points, and more. Choose from varying race modes like Overdrive, Lockdown, and Countdown and take victory alone or with friends. It's a promising concept that's executed well by a veteran developer, but there's still a lot of room for improvement. It has a Provisional PlayScore of 7.14
