    A solid FPS which manages to combine its classic roots with some modern elements, offering us good action variety and some outstanding characters. It could have done better with a deeper plot and some climatic exploration sections, but it won't disappoint once you put the first, boring, couple of hours behind you.

    Fable: The Journey loses many of the elements that made the main series famous, things like PNG interaction, moral choices and freedom, but it makes a very good and pleasing Kinect game, even with some story revelations that will please the series fans.

    DJ Hero revealed to be very entertaining even for people usually not into the DJ and hip-hop scene: we've got a long tracklist full of little gems, with a well projected and solid controller. The downsides are the too few playing modes and some weird freezes when in the songs selection menus. However it's a good start, upon which the developers will be able to build a successful franchise: if you're tired of your plastic guitars and batteries, this will give you a breath of fresh air.

    A funny and very immediate game that could please Fable lovers willing to enjoy some time with their friends.

    The Gunstringer is a very enjoyable game, fresh and fulfilling in every aspect. Definitely one of the best non party/fitness/dance games for Kinect, with great motion recognition and a smart co-op mode. Too bad for its shortness, which detracts from the overall value of the game, but it's however a suggested buy.

    Finally a real strong competitor to Mario Kart outside of Nintendo platforms: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed joins a simple and very intuitive control system to a varied and always entertaining gameplay, with great characters cast and inspired track design.

    This game manages to maintain all the charm and ironic atmosphere of the original movies, delivering us a very enjoyable game that even who never saw the movies could appreciate. If you're long time fans of the Ghostbusters, you won't be disappointed.

    A good and very solid Kinect beat-em-up for Kinect, combining an effective combat system to Marvel heroes' charm. One of the very best Kinect games of the holidays.

    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.

    A disturbing two-hour trip into the mind of a mother looking for her lost son, with great atmosphere thanks to the top-notch sound design.

    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.

    A good remaster job of an already good and content-filled game, but not without its flaws especially in the graphical department. If you've never played the original game it could be worth a ride, otherwise it won't add anything more to the plate.

    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 frenzied and funny stealth game, with original color-based mechanics and a great price for the content it delivers.

    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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A pleasantly compelling game, with great art and that under the novelty of the dimension-shifting mechanics hides an old school platformer experience.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very good console free-to-play experience, even for who wants to keep the experience completely free without recurring to microtransactions.
    • 67 Metascore

    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.
    • 54 Metascore

    An highly imaginative and varied first person adventure, with vivid and rich worlds and brilliant puzzles, only dragged down by some technical issues and a couple of bad design choices.
    • 77 Metascore

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