Casey Powell Lacrosse 16 - Xbox One Game Review By RangerMalloy
Casey Powell Lacrosse 16 is a game developed by Big Ant Studios. We received a copy complimentary for our reviewing purposes. We would like to thank them for allowing us the opportunity to review this title.
Casey Powell Lacrosse 16 is everything a lacrosse enthusiast would hope for in a video game. It is based on stadium field Lacrosse. Although, it would be very cool if they added the box lacrosse version in future releases. There’s always something exciting about playing in an arena setting, but for field lacrosse, Big Ant nailed it with this release.
If you have ever played, one of the popular EA Sports titles, then you would be familiar with the playing control of this game. It takes a bit to get used to and the game itself is fast paced. We played many hours of this game and the score can be run up high in a regular game.
It is easy to get into this game and be relatively good at it in a short period of time. So, for casual players, you will find comfort in this title. However, conversely, if you are one that anticipates the AI, you will be disappointed. The AI does not react well and there does not seem to be reasoning on how the AI plays.
This can be frustrating at times and if you allow it to ruin your fun.
In Casey Powell, there are no licensing for real teams and teams do add to the excitement. Perhaps, in future releases, it will be considered. For now, we have Atlanta Blaze, Boston Cannons, and Maryland Terrapins and such. However, there is some awesomeness afoot! You are able to create not only your own player but your own TEAM and league!
Going back to the gameplay, you can play solo, couch-co-op or online. The first two are fun and engaging and a good way to spend time with the sport of Lacrosse. The latter, however, online play is difficult with the lack of players. Servers do not seem to be populated with players.
Casey Powell Lacrosse 16 is fun, frustrating, and exciting. As we played solely on Xbox One, we can imagine the gameplay is similar on other platforms. If you are a lacrosse fan, this game is for you. It reminds me of early hockey games that combined skill with chance. The gameplay is fast paced and prepare yourself for a good old fashion whooping if you are too ‘LAX’
Keep your sticks up Rangers! Casey Powell Lacrosse 16 is available digitally on the Xbox Store.
