Nascar Heat 4 has garnered a fairly lukewarm reception and received generally middling reviews since its release.
Contra: Rogue Corps also launched in September and is the latest entry in Konami’s mainline Contra series since 2007’s Contra 4. The game made its way to Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 24. Rogue Corps has been pretty divisive since launch and received relatively negative reviews across all platforms.
