    Infinity Ward goofs up on the campaign with a dull story and a totally forgettable villain, but they recover on the multiplayer side with some very nice maps, great bots AI, the usual frenzied gameplay and the highly addicting Extinction mode. Overall, though, CoD Ghosts lacks the magnificence and innovation we would have expected from IW's new work after the Modern Warfare trilogy.

    One of the best Kinect launch titles, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved is a perfect experience for everyone looking for some home fitness.

    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.

    The Saboteur contains several good ideas with a nice mix of several gameplay styles, but due to a lacking technical realization stays in the group of half-succeeded games.

    An immediate and entertaining game, but too far from the original concept. Something more akin to Joy Ride than the 1998 Motocross Madness.

    A visually awesome experience with fascinating landscapes and great animations, but a little bit on the boring side gameplay-wise. More variety in the combat mechanics and some more care on camera and map design would have greatly benefited the game.

    Just Dance 2017 fine-tunes the series mechanics with an updated tracklist but without adding great new features; it's still a very good party game, while it won't satisfy those willing to play it solo.

    A nice "word building" Limbo-like platform game, with great art style and intriguing puzzles, but with imprecise and frustrating platform controls.

    Another great game in the LEGO series, capable of entertaining both kids and grown-ups and sporting enhanced graphics. We're just a little disappointed in its small longevity, about 7 hours to complete, and the developers stubbornness in not providing an online co-op option.

    Characterized by an 80's look, Hyperdrive Massacre is a hectic and bizarre space car battle party game; with friends - and multiple controllers - at home it becomes very absorbing and thrilling, but otherwise it won't have much use due to lack of online multiplayer support.

    This remastered edition doesn't particularly improve, except for resolution ad frame-rate, an ok but definitely not memorable original game.

    More a mere porting than a proper remaster, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected brings all the original game's humor and over-the top action on Xbox One. Its lackluster technical production, however, makes it a suitable buy only for those who missed it during the previous generation.

    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 fascinating jump in gaming past, with a varied gameplay and a pleasant art style. Unluckily it proved to be quite frustrating too, due to several bad choices in game design.

    Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 offers us a good advancement over the previous chapter, with a surprising storyline made both of original content and well known saga elements. It still needs to improve its camera management, but it's definitely a worthy buy for any Dragon Ball fan.

    HAWX has been a real surprise: it manages to differ from the usual dogfighting games thanks to some original ideas, adding variety to a long-time stale genre. Flight-sim purists could dislike it, but if you'll approach it without prejudices it'll be able to entertain you during all of its 20 missions, playable alone or in co-op, or allowing you to fight intense and lag-free 4 vs 4 online dogfights.

    A frantic but too short and not so original platformer. You could enjoy playing it in co-op with a friend at home, though.

    • 80 Critic Score
    One of the best Xbox One launch exclusives and a great fighting game, with a very good combat system and probably the best tutorial section ever seen in the genre. Our only complaints are about the thin characters line-up and the absence of a classic Arcade mode.

    Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is like an encyclopedia of the Musou series condensed in a single game, with a metric ton of contents rendered in a rock-solid 60fps frame-rate. Its old-gen legacy is however still too strong, compromising the entire production.

    Yooka-Laylee strikes all the right notes: great platforming action, vast and gorgeous worlds with high variety and lots of secrets and hidden areas, tons of humor. Even without considering the nostalgia element, this is definitely one of the best platform games of last decade. A must have.

    The new interactive toys are a dream come true for any Marvel fan, and if you're a creative type you'll love the new Toy Box features. It's got its shortcomings, though, in the repetitive stories structure and in allowing us to just play the Avengers Play Set out of the box.

    A very good game for our children, that will be able to taste the Disneyland parks magic without leaving their homes.

    Dante's Inferno is entertaining and a good variant to the usual Xbox 360 line-up. Great storytelling, very solid graphics and an atmospheric soundtrack make it worth the purchase: only its low longevity and the too repetitive combat system keep down our rating of the game.

    A good party game, very funny to play with friends at home or over Xbox Live.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    A very singular game, coupling a good multiplayer with a forgettable and short single player campaign and, especially, a disappointing technical production if compared to Platinum Games standards. Thanks to its budget price and uniqueness could however be worth a buy if you’re looking for a different and furious brawler to pass some time with.

    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.
    • 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.

    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.

    Even if still fun when managing mountains of zombies with crazy weapons of all kinds, Dead Rising 4 fails to diversify enough of its gameplay from the previous game, making even a backward step in the variety, graphics and overall charisma departments.

    Race Pro oozes with Simbin's passion for motorsports, but with some shortcomings lowering its global quality: a very good simulation model, great roar sounds and an accurate tracks reproduction coexist with annoying frame rate problems and a mediocre cars reproduction. It's mainly a game for ultra-fans of cars and motors, looking for a very straightforward experience.
