    Dante's Inferno is entertaining and a good variant to the usual Xbox 360 line-up. Great storytelling, very solid graphics and an atmospheric soundtrack make it worth the purchase: only its low longevity and the too repetitive combat system keep down our rating of the game.

    Borderlands is a successful experiment, managing to introduce some fresh elements in the quite static FPS landscape. The gameplay mechanics and its original graphics make it fresh and entertaining, suitable both for FPS fans and the people who loves Diablo-style RPGs. If you're willing to play it cooperatively with (up to four) your friends, Borderlands will shine in its best shape.

    Dragon Ball: Raging Blast manages to recreate with great fidelity Dragon Ball's anime series. The great richness of characters, modes and other contents makes it the best game in the series, absolutely suggested to all Toriyama fans, but not only: it's a good fighting game suited also for every lover of this genre.

    A good game both for Naruto fans and those who are new to Kishimoto and Studio Pierrot saga, capable of delivering many spectacular moments mainly thanks to the superb cel-shading graphic engine and well thought-out boss battles. However some flaws like lackluster exploration phases, missing playable characters and too many idle times during dialogue keep it from being the great Naruto game we'd wanted it to be.

    This first taste of Hitman's new path offers us one of the best locations in the series, with lots of freedom and many environments to explore. A promising new start, even if the overall story is just barely hinted at; we'll have to wait for the next chapters to see if it's got a great plot too.

    Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock confirms all its precursor qualities and features, introducing a very enjoyable story mode and offering a great tracklist.

    If you're used to the classic NfS style with its extreme customization and its barebones arcade style, Criterion's game could reveal itself as an unwelcome change; however, despite some not very good gameplay choices it's a very entertaining and engaging racing game.

    With WRC 3 Milestone managed to improve its series with a satisfying driving model and a lot of contents for rally fans; it still needs some work in the graphics department, but this third episode marks a good step forward in the right direction. Highly recommended to racing and rally lovers.

    A very interesting novelty in the music games genre, very involving for guitar/bass newcomers even if quite challenging. The on-screen notes indicators are sometimes confusing and it could benefit from a more distinctive presentation, but if you always wanted to start playing guitar this is a very good tool for becoming acquainted with the instrument.

    A very good children's game, thanks to the level of immersion with the stories and interaction with the characters it can provide. If you're looking for a non-violent, involving and even with some educative aspects game for your kids, this might be one of your best bets.

    Warriors Orochi 3 is a true monument to Omega Force's games style. Crammed full of contents and with a very good character advancement system, this is the game to own if you're into the "Warriors" type of games.

    Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12: The Masters stays on the usual high quality standards the series got us used to, with some very welcome new entries like the caddie and the Augusta Masters. We're just disappointed by a complete lack of support to Kinect the absence of any kind of italian localization.

    The Old Blood keeps all The New Order features putting us in a new and more supernatural-oriented story. A good game for the ones who, like us, liked the previous one.

    A good mix of simulation and arcade gameplay with a great graphical fidelity, EA Sports MMA manages to reproduce all the fetures of mixed martial arts without scaring away the player wit too complex combos or controls.

    A worthy sequel in Bandai Namco's hyper-frenzied Pac-Man series, with a highly competitive gameplay and some important new mechanics. It might have used some more variety, but it's undoubtedly a must buy for all lovers of this genre.

    Star Wars: Battlefront reveals to be a very immediate and accessible multiplayer game, capable of excite both casual and hardcore gamers thanks also to a great visual fidelity to the Star Wars environments.

    A very good golf simulator, with a high variety of gameplay, even if somewhat complex for newbies. We would have liked a better graphics, not in par with the nice environments offered by other games.

    WayForward brings a beautiful modern 2.5D look to Shantae's world, with stunning music and a more streamlined gameplay experience. A definite must buy for any lover of side-scrolling platform games.

    Skylanders Giants builds on the already good first game adding more polish and a better difficulty balance. It doesn't change the game structure much and gameplay mechanics, but the young gamers won't complain about it. Undoubtedly one of the best games of the season to play with your children.

    Ubisoft's bet on a multiplayer-focused medieval brawler has been fully won thanks to a deep and tactical combat system and lots of choices for the player, even if it hit some bumps with a pretty unstable netcode and an underwhelming campaign.

    Infinity Ward's new game introduces an exciting new campaign while being more conservative on the multiplayer side, with a mix of Ghosts and BO3 mechanics. The end result is a good but not outstanding game, something that will please lovers of the series but won't do anything to attract new or lapsed players.

    A simple and minimalist - yet highly challenging - puzzle game at a great price, Cubot is the perfect pastime for logic challenge lovers.

    Crysis 3 feels like a missed opportunity: it's got awesome visuals and it's great fun to play, but a bad enemy AI, short campaign and a low challenge level keep it from really shining.

    An original and stylish 2D run-and-gun shooter with great graphics and artistic design, and lots of crazy weapons. Highly fun both alone or in co-op, definitely recommended.

    A good match-3 game, made unique and absorbing thanks to some original and interesting features.

    A highly ambitious and complex game, capable of rewarding the gamer with lots of satisfaction if he'll take enough time - and we're talking about dozens of hours here - to learn and master all its mechanics. Space exploration has never been more real.

    Infinity Ward goofs up on the campaign with a dull story and a totally forgettable villain, but they recover on the multiplayer side with some very nice maps, great bots AI, the usual frenzied gameplay and the highly addicting Extinction mode. Overall, though, CoD Ghosts lacks the magnificence and innovation we would have expected from IW's new work after the Modern Warfare trilogy.

    HAWX has been a real surprise: it manages to differ from the usual dogfighting games thanks to some original ideas, adding variety to a long-time stale genre. Flight-sim purists could dislike it, but if you'll approach it without prejudices it'll be able to entertain you during all of its 20 missions, playable alone or in co-op, or allowing you to fight intense and lag-free 4 vs 4 online dogfights.

    Dead or Alive 5 stays true to its origins, with its signature combat system satisfying both for casual and hardcore gamers. A good fighter, even if it could have dared a little bit more on the improvements side.

    A solid and entertaining co-op experience, getting more complex with the increase in the number of players connected. We loved its focus on puzzles, something the main Tomb Raider series lacked lately.
