    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.

    RIDE manages to catch all the magic of riding street supersport bikes both in suggestive city/country locations and in circuits, with a good mix of bikes, environments and gameplay variations. It could have used more polish and care, but Milestone can't obviously count on the same super-budgets of big publishers.

    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.

    Ziggurat mixes fantasy FPS, RPG and roguelike elements in a successful original mix. A very interesting title that will undoubtedly entertain the more nostalgic gamers.

    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.

    Broken Sword 5 presents us with an enthralling story supported by good 2D graphics and well-thought-out console controls, at a very good price point. All point-and-click adventures lovers should give it a chance.

    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.

    Far Cry: Primal adds some interesting and more survival-oriented new mechanics to the usual franchise formula, but the main storyline revealed itself to be quite dull while the environments and gameplay result in a bit too repetitive experience. It remains however an advised buy to open world games lovers, despite its flaws.

    A very immediate and entertaining game, expecially if played with friends. Its only flaw is in the too-few available circuits, only six.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Vatra Games managed in bringing back the great feeling and gameplay balance of the first games in the series, delivering us a real survival horror in a time when every game seems to prefer the action route. It's not perfect, but definitely a big step in the right direction for Konami's franchise.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very distinct FPS, meant for living a realistic co-op war experience in open environments. It isn't perfect however, mainly in single player due to the lacking allied AI.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Even if lacking a plot capable of sparking the player's interest, Mad Max managed to keep us entertained for tens of hours thanks to its vast world rich of opportunities. A solid game, worth a try for all fans of the movie series.

    A good remaster by Capcom, with enjoyable graphics and new modes and contents. If you never played the game or want to relive Chris and Sheva's adventures (including all DLCs), it won't disappoint you.

    FRU
    FRU definitely is one of the best and more innovative games for Kinect, entertaining both alone and with friends. If you've got a Kinect connected to your Xbox One, this is a must buy.
    • 76 Metascore

    A surprising game: a dirty, gritty travel through human moral and psyche. An experience worth trying, even if plagued by small technical and gameplay problems.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A game with a very strong personality and two great main characters, reminiscent of some Rodriguez movies. It sports a solid and varied gameplay, but it could have been much better if it was tweaked to deliver more tension and fear to the player; moreover, eight hours for a playthrough without any incentives to replayability aren't enough. Notwithstanding, it remains a very good game for action-horror lovers.

    A very good game concept by Disney, with a great potential but with a rough start due to some bugs and a quite repetitive Play Set gameplay. Children and Disney fans will love it though.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very good and solid game, capable of perfectly blending its action and RPG souls and with good visuals and level design. Our major complaint is about it trying to get more of our money than other standard XBLA games, with an insidious pricing model and in-game currency packs: this could create some confusion in the players.
    • 77 Metascore

    A good Sonic game, enteraining and fresh, with great 2D levels and a not so great 3D ones. Suggested to every fan of SEGA's hedgehog.

    Who played the first game will find in Overlord II the same irreverent and ironic spirit, coupled with greatly improved visuals capable of showing us beautiful, lush and evocative sceneries. On the other hand, we find a not so varied gameplay, in the long run repetitive. The new elements are interesting, but they aren't enough to suggest it to anyone: due to its atypical structure, we suggest to try it before opting to buy.

    Coming back to Sera has been a real pleasure: Gears of War: Ultimate Edition reminds us of how good (and still relevant) was its game and level design.

    Neon Chrome sports a great and deep mix of twin-stick shooter and roguelike mechanics, with a satisfying sense of progression and good challenges. Its neon-like artistic design feels a bit overused and uninspired, but overall it's one of the best roguelike/shooter games around.
