There’s no denying that sports titles are some of the most appealing and popular games on the market. However, they are usually overlooked once the spotlight shines over adrenaline-infused action games, such as Battlefield or Call of Duty. In any case, if you consider yourself a sports enthusiast with an Xbox One, you’ll be pleased to know that there are loads of incredible sports games to indulge in. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the best sports games for Xbox One in 2019.

Madden NFL 18

Madden NFL is considered the only American football title on the market. However, if you think that the series has gone soft over the years due to lack of competition, you’d be wrong. Madden NFL 18 is regarded as the most fully-featured football game ever created, featuring multiple GM and career modes, both offline and online, along with an incredible Ultimate Team mode and a new Draft Champions mode to create your own team from scratch. The overall gameplay is less arcade and more simulation, which means its less forgiving and slower defensively when compared to previous titles. However, it’s far more satisfying to play because of that.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2017

Do you want a soccer game that plays the best or a soccer game with the most real players and teams? Well, for us its all about a game that provides the best gameplay and therefore Pro Evolution Soccer is the top choice. With Pro Evo 2017, the movement is fluid and smooth, and you won’t be locked into animations like other sports games. Centering volleys and long passes connect more frequently due to CPU teammates making intelligent runs which means they are usually where you want them to be. Although it doesn’t feature football licenses, its quickly forgotten once you experience the phenomenal gameplay this game has to offer.

NHL 18

NHL 18 comes equipped with several gameplay modes, including leagues, online games, GM, and career, and impresses with phenomenal graphics and animations that look and sound exactly like a television broadcast. It also provides several difficulty settings, gameplay and rule options, and innovative adjustments to A.I behaviour that will allow gamers of any skill level to instantly hit the ice and have a truly entertaining time with this ultra-realistic simulation game in Xbox One.

NBA 2K18

Considered the king of basketball games for several years, it should come as no surprise that NBA 2K18 is yet again voted as the best basketball game for Xbox One in 2019. The game offers incredible gameplay mechanics and offers intuitive controls that will allow you to instantly jump into the game for an entertaining experience. You will also find a wealth of in-game options to fine tune the game to your unique playing style for added convenience. What’s truly impressive is that you can choose between an arcade style game or a truly realistic simulation game in a matter of seconds.
