    A very satisfying gameplay ad an excellent technical realization make of Spider-Man: Dimensions the best Spidey game to date.

    A good next-gen debut for Conan Doyle's detective, but we would have liked more challenging and distinctive cases.

    A good game, but it feels like a step backwards from the first game in the series: it's lost some of the depth and innovation we were used to, delivering us a more classical and straightforward experience. It sports, however, a good story, even if quite short, and insipred visuals: it deservers to be played.

    If you're looking for some hours of anguish and high tension, don't wait anymore.

    A solid 2D platform-puzzler full of stealth elements and nice ideas. It gets held back by some too basic and somewhat imprecise controls, but it's however a valid game for this genre's lovers.

    Amongst its many merits and defects, Bionic Commando left us the memory of an entertaining and fresh play experience. If you aren't easily discouraged by a somewhat complex control system and the occasional difficulty spikes, Capcom's new game will be able to give you some memorable moments and a positively different experience from the crowd of modern third person shooters.

    WRC 2: FIA World Rally Championship builds upon the previous game with a more satisfying driving model and more involving career mode. A very good and realistic reproduction of the rally experience except for the graphics, still not up to the competition.

    DiRT Showdown is a pleasing arcade take on the classical rally franchise, with the great technical production Codemasters used us to. Nevertheless, it lacks some spice expecially if played alone, ending up to be recommendable mainly to people willing to play an immediate and entertaining racer with friends.

    Its mobile origins entail some technical limitations like small environments and repetitiveness, but they're balanced by its deep and challenging gameplay and a very good story. A good buy for any Final Fantasy lover.

    Great visuals and animations are partially countered by unexciting game design and a banal story. It's still a decent buy for zombie lovers, but it could have been much more.

    A niche game: complex and very demanding, it will award the player willing to patiently master each aspect. We would have liked a better technical production and a more involving story, though.

    Techland managed to put the CoJ series back on track, delivering an entertaining and humorous FPS even if a little bit unpolished. If you like western films and games, this is a sure bet.

    Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition confirms the original game's pros like the great combat system and compelling story, but this HD re-edition doesn't astonish or add new elements to justify buying it again or for the first time, at full price, for the ones who never played it.

    PES 2012 fails to fully persuade, especially if you're looking for a more realistic and simulative play style. The game introduces some welcome features like the on-line fair play system, but fumbles on the ball physics and defense management, with an overly high speed of the actions. Suited for those looking for a more arcade soccer experience.

    A surprisingly valid and entertaining story, capable of casting a new light on Borderlands' world. Too bad for its technical problems like huge stutters and the complete absence of an Italian localization, even in subtitles.

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior isn't flawless, mainly due to a sub-par technical production and some mediocre run-and-gun shooting sections; nevertheless, the developers managed to bring us a very involving and atmospheric game, suited to everyone who has always been charmed by the sniper profession.

    tri-Ace managed to bring us a good game, but not exempt from defects like the bland plot and expressionless characters. Though we advise you to try it, mainly thanks to its very good combat system, one of the best we tried in a Japanese RPG.

    Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom is a very interesting experiment that will please all the lovers of action and puzzles games with a good tactical depth thanks to the interaction possibilities between the two main characters. Too bad for the dated visuals, the frequent backtracking sections and pace drops in the gameplay.

    Off the Record feels too much as the previous game, and the new sandbox mode isn't really open like we would have liked. Advised only if you never played DR2.

    Mini Ninjas is clearly aimed to a public wanting to enjoy a game without many complications. The nice story and excellent art direction make it a very good game to be played in the family or with friends.

    Army of Two: The 40th Day is a missed great game, mainly due to the extremely short play experience, while the whole game appears as very solid and improved in many areas. If you liked the first game, this sequel will surely win your hearts, even if for a short time.

    Probably calling this game Skate 2.5 or Skate Online would have been more fair. Skate 2 show too less innovation on the previous game, except for the strong push towards online support. Nonetheless, just because it builds upon the strong foundations of the previous game, Skate 2 remains a strong and entertaining experience for every skateboarding lover.

    James Cameron's Avatar revealed to be enjoyable even without the attached movie license, offering us good visuals and gameplay; it isn't perfect, mainly due to the repetitive missions design and some control problems, but if you're looking for a sci-fi action game to play after the holidays big hits, this is your best bet.

    BioWare partially failed to port to console a very classical PC RPG. The Xbox 360 version of the game is ruined by bad graphics and a flawed combat system, while some aspects like the great, multiple-branching story will delight many players. Despite its problems, Dragon Age: Origins remains the only good "old style" RPG on this platform, so if you're looking for something like this you should give it a chance.

    WRC: FIA World Rally Championship is a racing game for true rally lovers, with simple graphics but rich of content and with a very satisfying gameplay.

    A great Marvel game, with a stellar cast of characters and the solid and proven LEGO gameplay: unmissable by any true believer. Our main complaint is about the complete lack of localized dialogues in the Italian version of the game, something that highly diminishes its appeal towards the younger gamers.

    Battlefiled 4 lacks in the single-player campaign with a dull and forgettable story, while its still remains a very strong experience in its multiplayer side. Unfortunately it gets dragged down by several bugs capable of impacting the entire experience with hangs, savegame corruption and hitbox problems that we hope will be quickly be fixed.

    LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is definitely the best LEGO game to date. More varied, reflexive and visually beautiful than its precursors, it's still inheriting some genetic defects from them, like a slight repetitivity and the absence of online co-op and online user-created maps sharing.

    A very entertaining and long game, thanks to many modes and a good online side, but with not-so-stellar visuals.

    A good detective adventure: if you like the genre and are willing to forgive its inadequate graphics, it's a suggested buy.
