    Xbox One was missing a Mario Kart-like game, and Beach Buggy Racing delivers just that with several modes, many vehicles and lots of power-ups. Too bad for the absence of any online modes.

    Massive Chalice nails the XCOM-like turn based combat mechanics, introducing an intriguing "genetic management" factor; although it lacks in depth and complexity, resulting in a little varied experience. Adding more hero classes, defense mechanics and maps verticality would have helped.

    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.

    A welcome step forward for the series, even if there are still problems to fix in the physics simulation and online play. WWE fans won't however be disappointed and will find it a fresher and spectacular game.

    ScreamRide's main strength lies in its deep and powerful editor and community sharing features; riding rollercoarsters revealed to be an entertaining experience too, while the Demolition Expert mode disappointed us with lack of polish and unimaginative gameplay. Mainly advised to the more creative players, who are willing to experiment with the game's strong simulative features.

    An entertaining, highly varied and technically excellent pool game, even if lacking in innovation or new elements for its genre.

    A totally lunatic action-platform game, with a simple yet unpredictable gameplay and ridiculous characters and situations.

    A very interesting game but somewhat unrefined. Good environments and missions design isn't followed by a suitable storytelling, denying us a more deep immersion. It stays however a good flight combat sim, with a very solid and satisfying gameplay.

    A nice 2D runner based on tens of skating tricks, easy to learn but hard to master. Its ease and repetitiveness however make it more suited for a mobile gaming experience.

    An absorbing gameplay, thanks to a very well crafted advancement system, makes SteamWorld Dig a worthwile game even if it could have done a bit more on the variety front.

    Interesting gameplay mechanics and a suspense-rich plot make it a game worth to be tried, even if it could have been much better.

    A game you'll love or hate. Great graphics and art style make it a very pretty platform game, but the high and unforgiving difficulty could scare away the ones approaching it just for the looks.

    If played locally, PES 2014 is a great soccer game showing that Konami took the right path for its series rebirth. But as you try getting online, countless problems arise making it hardly playable.

    Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is a valuable game, especially for its multiplayer co-op and survival modes. But if you're looking for a deep and fascinating single player experience, you'll be disappointed by the extremely high difficulty and complete lack of any plot.

    An adrenalinic retro-flavored twin stick shooter, graced by an entertaining and extremely precise gameplay. Its lack of content and variety could push you away pretty soon, though.

    This new FPS by Zombie Studios is enthralling, original and frenetic: a different shooter with a good online mode, even if partly ruined by campers.

    Asura's Wrath sports an entertaining and adrenalinic gameplay, coupled with great visuals and a captivating storytelling style. Nevertheless, its very repetitive gameplay, short duration and too low challenge level contribute to drag down its overall value.

    Despite the new and interesting Challenge Play mode and the great golf implementation, Kinect Sports Season Two looks like a step backwards for the series, with generally uninteresting sports expecially for the european public. Keeping the first game sports together with the new ones would have kept it more interesting, adding more variety to the entire package.

    Notwithstanding its defects, mainly in the on-foot part of the game and overall graphical look, Wheelman proves to be entertaining and able to keep the gamer involved until the end of the story. The action-racing part of the game offers some unique and interesting gameplay ideas that we'd like to see recycled in games with higher production values.
