    Drawing fully from classical bullet hell shooters clich├ęs, Teslapunk offers a unique design style and precise controls.

    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.

    It might lack FIFA an PES features and simulation, but Active Soccer 2 DX balances it out with an highly entertaining arcade soccer experience, something Sensible Soccer and Kick Off nostalgics will love.

    An original and nice 2D puzzle-stealth game, with some funny and pretty ideas and nice environments.

    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.

    A good reinvention of the classic battleship game, with the added depth of more tactical options and modes suitable for lone players, group of friends and online play.

    A charming platform game, which benefited in the jump from mobile to the living room and offered at a very good price point.

    iO
    iO offers us an original and challenging platform gameplay mechanic coupled with a charming minimalist design: definitely suggested to every skill-based 2d platformer lover.

    Made for the speedrun FPS lovers, Lovely Planet challenges us with colorful and incredibly fast levels where we need to move quickly and with high precision. Its lack of variety in levels structure and mode, though, could end up in quickly tiring the player.

    A good an passion-infused cyberpunk RPG, witdh great landscapes and a good multi-approach combat system. Unluckily the game gets dragged down by a flawed technical production, with many graphical flaws and unconvincing animations, and some bad design choices like the heavy backtracking.

    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.

    A deep and satisfying prison design and management game, strongly reminiscent of games like Dungeon Keeper and Evil Genius. We loved the community prison sharing feature, but would have liked some form of co-op gameplay. Unluckily Its uninspired and over-simplistic graphics don't do the game justice, but it's at least functional.

    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.

    The Bug Butcher sports a funny gameplay mechanic, but it lacks in variety making the play experience quickly repetitive. It's got a very good couch co-op mode, though.

    An ambitious and fascinating game, The Banner Saga sports memorable characters and great visuals but turned out to be too unbalanced towards the dialogues and management components, to the detriment of the turn-based battles.

    Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter introduces new and interesting elements capable of making Sherlock Holmes a more human and charismatic character with some welcome additions in gameplay too, like the new first person mode. It's still got some of the series known defects though, like low-detailed characters and bad animations, while load times can often be exhausting.

    One of the best co-op action-RPGs around, but the single player mode feels overly unbalanced and punishing, making it impossible to complete for the lone adventurers.

    A stunning pixel art game, with a very interesting mix of mechanics ranging from management to tower defense in a roguelike structure. Unluckily it can get quickly boring too, and when it's not it can deliver some unbearable difficulty spikes.

    A real blast from the past, recalling early Metroid and Super Mario times. It offers lots of contents and a good replayability, but the experience isn't always perfect due to a small input lag and an unpleasant knock back when touching enemies. All things considered, Amazing Princess Sarah is however an entertaining retro experience capable of delivering hours of fun to the genre lovers.

    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.

    TurnOn delivers an artistically fascinating world, with nice gameplay mechanics in an highly detailed and full of life city. Its main downside is the overly easy gameplay, lacking any real challenge.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    An easy to learn but challenging twin-stick shooter, with a cute toyish modern war look and many levels to play. Its excessive simplicity could end up in being boring after a bunch of hours though, and lack of co-op looks like a missed opportunity.

    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.

    An intriguing action-platformer, with a great heavy metal soundtrack and a challenging, yet satisfying old school gameplay. Its short duration and some outdated design choices prevent it from fully shining, but Castlevania-like games lovers should give it a chance.
