    A very good game, charismatic, charming and suitable both for children and grown-up Tolkien lovers, whom will find it a very funny, if not challenging, experience.

    • 75 Critic Score
    The best title in the series yet, thanks to the great anime style visuals and the addition of a bit of strategic gameplay. Koei needs to work on the confusing story and the dull and repetitive environments, though.

    Dead Island is an entertaining game, with interesting locations and a good RPG component, even if sometimes too cumbersome. Its main problems reside in a disappointing technical production and annoying bugs that sometime prevent us from completing a mission, forcing us to reload the last save. It's a very good game concept, but too unpolished.

    A unique game, with great and distinctive artistic design; if you can turn a blind eye on the somewhat repetitive gameplay and quite short longevity, it could prove to be one of the most memorable visual experiences of this generation.

    Crackdown 2 doesn't do anything particularly bad, but either doesn't do anything to shine above the other games. Chaos and destruction are everywhere, even after we've cleaned up an area of the city, making it impossible to quietly explore the city in search of secrets and orbs, like in the first game. It's a fun game at first, but it wears quickly into a repeated more of the same.

    It lacks on the visuals side, especially after the other movie tie-ins Ubisoft got us to, but it sports a charismatic cast and solid gameplay. An enjoyable game, recommended to newcomers and fans of the belgian character, children and grown-ups.

    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.

    A good and valid workout program, suited for some serious home fitness. Don't expect to be trained in MMAs tough, because except for some boxing excercises, you won't find much.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    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.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 73 Critic 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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    An entertaining and well-thought-out game, adding interesting new elements to the famous Angry Birds formula.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    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.

    A respectable action game, that manages to entertain from start to finish also thanks to a nice story with a touch of black humour.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    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.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    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.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 71 Critic Score
    Very variegated tracks, many play modes and a good selection of boats make Hydro Thunder a good game, thanks to the online multiplayer too.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A visually compelling game, Pneuma: Breath of Life offers very original puzzles mechanics and an interesting background story, but lacks in length resulting in 2-3 total hours of play.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    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.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    With several very good arcade games, Capcom Digital Collection is a valid choice for everyone who still haven't bought them via Xbox Live.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good action game with a straight and easy gameplay, suitable for the whole family.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A compelling, complex and well designed puzzle game, but it stumbles in its controls: zooming in and out and panning between different flocks is rather uncomfortable on console controls and will demand some patience from the player.
    • 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.
