Let’s talk about Hardcore Henry, you and me. I trust you’ve seen it by now, so this is a spoiler zone (though there isn’t much to spoil).
EA Sports’ franchises haven’t always had easy transitions to new systems. “Rory McIlroy PGA Tour” debut isn’t as bare as last year’s “NHL 15,” nor as unplayable as “Madden NFL 06” was last generation, but its charms are limited. It does some things well, but they aren’t enough to make it stand out.
