    Even if maintaining many of World Tour features, thus being surely an entertaining title per se, Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits seems a game we could do without, especially given the very short time - a month - from the GH: Metallica release. For the people who already owns GH: World Tour, it would have been surely better to get these songs as DLCs rather than paying 59 Euros for a compilation that will hardly 100% satisfy anyone; if you're instead approaching the series for the first time, we suggest to buy Guitar Hero: World Tour so that you'll be able to enjoy the vast downloadable songs library too.

    Magna Carta II revealed to be a good J-RPG, especially thanks to the excellent combat system: pleasant, deep and never frustrating. Unfortunately a mediocre overall realization and quite boring dialogues pulled down our evaluation of the game. If you're used of this kind of games, you could be surprised by it.

    Metro 2033 looks like a missed chance: it had all the premises to be a great game, but several flaws heavily undermine it, making it a sometimes frustrating experience.

    Many new features, a great longevity and a vast and varied characters roster makes this the best game yet in the Dynasty Warriors franchise.

    A good action game with a straight and easy gameplay, suitable for the whole family.

    Dead Rising 2: Case Zero offers us a great taste of what we'll find in Dead Rising 2, even if it ends up being too short.

    Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 looks too similar to the first game in the series, except for small improvements in graphics and story structure. If you already played the first Raging Blast, this will look like more of the same, control problems included. But if you're a Dragon Ball fan and never played it in the past, you could easily enjoy it.

    James Bond 007: Blood Stone sports a good gameplay both in the action and racing sections, but its short duration and the unsatisfying story keep it from being a true must have for every Bond fan.

    The new Star Wars games shines for its awesome graphics and refined controls, but it's not enough to overcome a boring and short story and very repetitive gameplay.
    • 56 Metascore

    A good party game, mainly thanks to the nice visual stile and the great variety of games: the lack of a true party mode for involving more than two players is disappointing, though.

    Brink is a shooter suited exclusively for lovers of team-based online play; it's got a solid gameplay and good class differentiation, but it lacks a proper involving single player campaign, reduced to a mere sequence of botfights in the same few multiplayer arenas.

    A surprisingly well done and fun game, which would have better benefited from a full story mode and online play.

    A direct and technically good HD remaster of the 2003 game, from which it inherits the great sense of humour and longevity, but also flaws like the troublesome camera and controls, together with low quality sound. If you discovered Rayman only with the Origins game and want more of it, it's a suggested buy.

    Bloodforge isn't a game for anyone, starting from its gory, desaturated visuals to its highly difficult gameplay. Too bad that some flaws, like a bad saves management and imprecise controls, help to steer it more towards a frustrating experience rather than a challenging and rewarding one.

    MUD's immediate and very arcade experience could disappoint the most serious gamers, but the great number of teams, bikes, riders and tracks coming from the MX1 and MX2 licenses are enough to attract every motocross lover.

    With several very good arcade games, Capcom Digital Collection is a valid choice for everyone who still haven't bought them via Xbox Live.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good "ballistic destruction" game, with functional and well-thought motion controls and overally satisfying gameplay. With better artistic and level/puzzles design could have been a real must-have.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good tie-in for Disney-Pixar's flic, entertaining and well-balanced for kids.

    A decent flight combat game, especially if played in sim mode. Unfortunately the very poor graphics manage to hinder what's been achieved with a good story and overall feeling.

    Doom 3 still manages to give us some great emotions, but it didn't age too well and the always present flashlight just worsens the general feeling.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A nice take on the usual RPG formula, with a great story and good graphics even if the the gameplay and combat system fail to fully persuade.

    Razor’s Edge manages to fix many of NG3's flaws, except the bad plot. Still not amongst the best action games of the last years and absolutely not up to par with the first two games in the series, it's however a pleasant experience for Ryu Hayabusa's fans.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game full of interesting ideas, but blandly developed. Its only strengths lie in the brilliant environments and good enemy/boss design, but all of this gets obscured by a tedious combat system and climbing sections, while the Memory Remix and Remembrane parts ended up being overly scripted and not really satisfying. Shortness is also a problem.

    Cloudberry Kingdom offers lots of content and some interesting ideas with a potentially infinite longevity, but you should consider it only if you aren't afraid of an overly difficult and punishing game.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Graced by stunning and truly next-genish graphics, Ryse: Son of Rome unluckily stumbles on too-repetitive fights: the combat system itself proved do be quite solid but it lacks variety in enemy types and weapons used. Upon this we find an overly short story balanced by a valid co-op experience. It's undoubtedly a game to try for every Xbox One owner, but one that you could be willing to wait to find at a more appropriate price.

    NFS Rivals presents some good ideas, with a good enemy AI and bright visuals, but it gets partially ruined by an unstable frame rate and a general sense of repetitiveness in the game structure.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A completely different game from anything else available on Xbox One, suitable both to managerial game lovers and families with children, thanks to the many play modes available. If you're a fan of the series, you won't be disappointed even if the difficulty is a little bit tuned on the low side.

    A controversial title, not fully doing justice to the excellent work MercurySteam put in the first game. It sports a very good combat system but stumbles on boring stealth and platforming sessions, with too many cutscene interruptions. However fans of the series will love playing as Dracula and going deeper in the Belmont family story.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 69 Critic Score
    A somewhat exciting and absorbing game mainly thanks to its frenetic action and huge combos. However it's only suited for fans of this genere.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    A good compromise between modern survival-horror trends and the genre's classical elements, with consequent pros and cons. We mainly recommend it to Silent Hill fans, but it's also enjoyable as a stand-alone good psycho-thriller story, granted that you are willing to close an eye on the visual aspect and the tricky shooting.
