8 to Glory rating. Xbox One.

What I liked:

  • After researching the PBR quite a bit fans of the sport will be pleased to know that they’ve got all the riders and bulls you’re used to seeing in real life.
  • The presentation side of the game is actually pretty decent and I was pleased to see lots of details included in both the visuals and sound design.
  • I was pretty impressed with the career mode because it does have a certain amount of depth which in turn keeps things fresh and interesting for longer.
  • You can play the game both on your own and in local co-op which does give the game quite a bit of replaybility.
  • Technically the game holds up really well throughout and I was also pleased to learn that the controls that have been implemented hold up well as well. 

What I didn’t like:

  • There is an RPG formula to the game and in my opinion this RPG-like formula fails to hit the mark and isn’t really needed. 
  • Unfortunately there is no online components in the game, which is a shame because I think this game would’ve benefited a lot from online play. 

 

Does 8 to Glory do enough to get a recommendation from me?

All in all I must admit I didn’t know much about the sport of bull riding, but after doing a bit of research I found it to be quite enjoyable and in the end I was actually looking forward to getting to grips with 8 to Glory. I’ll openly admit that I wasn’t expecting much from this game but what I ended up playing was something that provided me with a lot of fun and enjoyable moments. So If you’re anything like me then you’ll be a bit weary of purchasing the game at first but I fully recommend that you look past this weariness because what you get is a game that’s interesting and you also get a game that gets its important aspects spot on as well.

I rate 8 to Glory    8/10.
