    The game fails to marvel the player due to the absence of boss battles, exploration and QTEs, becoming a rather repetitive beat'em'up. Fans will however be pleased in finding inside both the anime series, with exclusive content from Studio Pierrot and a lot of characters to fight with.

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine has been a real surprise: its high levels of violence, enjoyable gameplay and good longevity make it overcome the average movie tie-ins crowd. Too bad its buggy and unpolished graphics keep it from reaching a better score.

    Tom Clancy's HAWX 2 looks like a soulless game: it's an ok flight combat sim, but it lacks a compelling story and missions.

    A solid arcade karting game, with an original and catchy point of view on the Formula One circus. Both kids and grown-up F1 fans will find it entertaining and funny.

    It wasn't easy to stay true to the legacy of an IP like Wolfenstein, but Raven Software managed to do an appreciable work despite some setbacks, like in the case of the lackluster online multiplayer, that concur to lower our final vote. If you're looking for an alternative FPS with a solid plot, some original gameplay mechanics and great atmosphere, this will be a good buy.

    LEGO Rock Band made some steps to make music games more accessible to families and children, but it gets lost in the songs list, too small and poor of real pop hits, at least for us Europeans. It's a nice gift for a kid (you'll have to separately buy the instruments, too), but not very interesting for music games hardcore fans.

    Even if Marvel super heroes are very popular, this game revealed to be a very niche one, mainly due to the inexplicable lack of any Italian translation even in the game menus, making it unapproachable by people without a good English understanding.

    A respectable action game, that manages to entertain from start to finish also thanks to a nice story with a touch of black humour.

    Homefront didn't manage to deliver on its high potential: for a very good plot and solid gameplay, we find an excessive shortness in the single player experience, a lacking multiplayer and an unpolished techical side.

    Red Faction Armageddon delivers the usual - and even enhanced - amount of spectacular destruction and physics play, but we found the experience to be more limited than the previous game due to the linear gameplay and the removal of the great competitive multiplayer Guerrilla had. If you're a fan of the previous game, Armageddon will probably disappoint you; otherwise it's a solid third person shooter with a very satisfying destructive soul.

    A mixed bag, with immediate and easy to learn controls but lacking depth and challenge. Even the depiction of great historic players succeeds only in part, with each player behaving too similarly to the others. A good starting game for begninners, but not enough for hardcore fans.

    A fun and engaging game troubled by a lacking technical production, even if Rebellion made a good job trying to overcome it with a great environments design. And in view of its more tactical and stealth approach, we would have liked a less linear and driven levels structure too.

    An entertaining and well-thought-out game, adding interesting new elements to the famous Angry Birds formula.
    • 75 Metascore

    Very variegated tracks, many play modes and a good selection of boats make Hydro Thunder a good game, thanks to the online multiplayer too.

    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.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.

    • 70 Critic Score
    A surprisingly well done and fun game, which would have better benefited from a full story mode and online play.
    • 69 Metascore

    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.
