    Thanks to the excellent visuals, brilliant characters and a compelling plot, Tales of Vesperia is a sure bet for all Japanese RPG and fantasy anime lovers: the very good combat system will ensure you to never get bored during the about 40 hours needed to end the main story, without counting in the many side-quests. Too bad, for us italian users, that the game wasn't localized at all: a very important blank, seen the great amount of dialogues involved.

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection isn't just a simple re-publishing of old games: it's an opera omnia that gives us a comprehensive and structured view on the past of the series and reminds us why those games are considered amongst of the best ones in their genre. Unluckily it's hindered by many problems in the multiplayer department, something that will surely be resolved but, at the time of writing, makes it simply unplayable online.

    A very good console version of the famous EA game, with a satisfying control system and nice console exclusive additions.

    Double Helix managed to modernize Capcom's classic game, even if fans could turn up their noses to the decreased difficulty level. Gameplay mechanics are highly satisfying, boss battles are engaging and fun and even lovers of metroidvania-style games will find something to look forward to: Hiryu is back.

    Even with its shortcomings, Fable was a good game and Fable Anniversary keeps everything intact while adding a fresh coat of Unreal Engine 3 graphics. The game didn't age too well and modern RPG lovers will have plenty to complain about, but if taken as a trip back in time to Xbox' early steps, it surely deserves a try.

    Gaijin Entertainment showed hou a very realistic game can be brought on console without the need of mapping the controls on a whole keyboard. The Sim mode is very challenging and entertaining, but the Arcade and Realistic modes allow everyone to enjoy the game without having to master all the aerodynamics laws. Our main complaint is about the missions variety, that start looking a little bit too repetitive at the middle of the game progression.

    Dimps managed to bring a breath of fresh air to an overly spent series adding some interesting RPG elements to the formula. There are still some aspects to be addressed in future games, but as of today its the game to have for Dragon Ball fans.

    A very effective combat system and distinctive narrative and artistic style get balanced by an unimpressive story and quite annoying screen tearing. If you're looking for a genuine Suda51 experience, it's nevertheless a recommended game.

    A great example of how to make a quality HD remake. Even if adapting the gameplay to modern tastes, Vector Cell managed to keep the original spirit untouched: even if you didn't play Delphine Software's original game, every lover of sci-fi action games would be pleased with it.

    A great game for every Hokuto no Ken fan, mixing a classical beat'em'up gameplay to the typical Dynasty Warriors mechanics.

    A pleasantly compelling game, with great art and that under the novelty of the dimension-shifting mechanics hides an old school platformer experience.

    A good remake, recommended to nostalgic players or the ones who could never play Rare's game, but we feel the price is a tad too high for a game of this kind.

    A very good console free-to-play experience, even for who wants to keep the experience completely free without recurring to microtransactions.

    A solid revamp of a genre highly missed on consoles. Frantic action, satisfying controls and a good sci-fi story make it a worthwhile buy for the lovers of space fighting sims.

    This first episode for Dontnod's new series shows us a mature-themed teen drama with strong narration and some good ideas, even if still just touched on. A good first chapter worth a try for anyone who loves graphic adventures like the Telltale ones, which major downside is the complete lack of any Italian localization for non-English speaking gamers.

    A good new beginning for the UFC series in its new EA Sports home. It surely could benefit some improvements in the career mode, but it results however in a solid game that every lover of this genre could be willing to try.

    Tropico 3 is a deep, complex and though game, packaged in a very good technical realization and catchy music. Missions are much varied and never boring, but they get sometimes ruined by the complex and unclear menus. If you like managerial games, this is surely a suggested game.

    A unique and very revealing game, something capable of totally immersing us in the songs we'll be playing.

    A good step forward for Konami's series, with a solid gameplay and finally a better control over players. To be a really great soccer game it still misses too many official licenses, though.

    A little gem full of brilliant puzzles, with a fascinating storytelling and a great soundtrack. It only slightly disappoints in the gameplay department, with somewhat imprecise controls that might become a problem in the most difficult and critical sections. Despite this, it's undoubtedly a game anyone should try.

    A successful mix of multiple genres, from action-RPGs to rogue-like to card games, make Hand of Fate a pretty unique title, even if it's with some technical problems. Definitely suggested to anyone looking for a very original experience.

    A very entertaining game, with a fresh and immediate gameplay suitable also to people who aren't great soccer sims lovers, even if a little bit encumbered by its managerial side. Perfect for amusing evenings with friends.

    A game that every motorcycling lover should at least try; some small problems can somewhat undermine part of the gameplay experience, but the feelings it transmits while racing are among the best in gaming. If you love motorbike races and you're willing to forgive some frame-rate drops and other small graphical problems, you should consider it.

    WWE Smackdown! vs RAW 2011 builds on the already solid series by adding many news features and extremely deepening the customization possibilities.

    Yet another step forward for the LEGO games, with new gameplay elements and a great cast of characters that help it to stay on top of TT Games' line-up. Nonetheless, the series starts to look a little bit tired and in need of important changes and improvements.

    Risen manages to be, especially thanks to its gameplay and story, an involving and exciting RPG guaranteeing may hours of entertainment. Suggested to all the fans of classic RPGs, while all the others should prepare for some hours of difficulties and frustration before seeing it shine.

    Without introducing particularly innovative elements, Swordfish Studios managed to ably mix and leverage already successful and well-known gameplay elements, delivering us a very entertaining dense hip hop style. Suggested to every lover of third person shooters, but mainly to Rap fans, that will find in this game all the traits of the gangsta lifestyle.

    A dream come true for the kids of the Ben 10 generation, which will be able to transform themselves into poweful super heroes. The game sports a good and satisfying control system and accurate Kinect recognition, but with a too short single player experience. Best if played with friends.

    The Cave reminds us why adventures like Monkey Island and Zak McKracken were so loved: even if offering a much more essential experience, Ron Gilbert’s irony and creativity are all still there. It fumbles on the weird co-op implementation and some frustrating moments, but it surely deserves to be played.
    • 72 Metascore

    On the multiplayer side, Hardline provides a solid and very compelling, even if highly BF4-like, experience, with some very entertaining new modes; the single player campaign resulted in a satisfying experience too, but we would have liked proper, full-blown stealth gameplay, rather than the unconvincing mix Visceral presented us.
