    A great rally game and natural evolution of the series keeping its soul in the middle between arcade and simulation approaches. An improved engine delivers some amazing sceneries and very detailed cars, with state-of-the-art physics and light effects. We apreciated the new features like the Gymkhana mode and the YouTube video upload, while the multiplayer modes proved to be very enteratining and varied. A suggested buy for every fan of the series and everyone looking for an awesome and adrenalinic racing game.

    Treyarch finally comes out of Infinity Ward's shadow, producing the best CoD to date. An epic and intense game, with a very good story and and many ways to enjoy it other than the single player campaign.

    Fight Night Round 4 is a real masterwork, a milestone in boxing simulations and a tough challenger for all future titles in this genre. If you like sports and boxing, there's not a single reason why you wouldn't own one of the best sports games of 2009 so far.

    A frantic and highly satisfying mix of rhythm and platform game: an advised buy for sure.

    Colin McRae: DiRT 2 established itself as one of the best racing games of the year. Jawdropping visuals and an over-the-top care to detail characterize a game capable to entertain both the motors passionates and those of you who are simply attracted by the spectacle of this kind of race. In a period monopolized by clean and shiny asphalt racers, this is a great mouthful of fresh air.

    One of the best platform games of this generation: maybe it lacks Braid's innovation or Outland's challenge level, but it's got a great appeal thanks to an highly inspired artistic audio/visual production and a varied and constantly entertaining gameplay. A little gem that would be a shame to miss.

    A great porting, with a brilliant gameplay and great challenge level and replayability. Console gamers had to wait over one year, but they got the best version at last.

    Even if without any meaningful graphical improvements, NBA 2K14 manages to deliver some important improvements on an already almost perfect formula, like the very welcome Euroleague addition.

    A true and great love letter to early 8-bit action-platform games, mixed with modern game design and mechanics. Unmissable.

    Probably the best cross-generation game so far, resulting in a very different experience from the current-gen version and stunning graphics capable of competing even with first party games. The best sports game around.

    A little masterwork, something that will please all the lovers of 2D fighters.

    DmC's definitive edition confirms all the good qualities of the original game, enhancing it thanks to the increased frame-rate, Turbo Mode and new difficulty modes. We would have liked to see more original content in it, but it remains yet the best action game available on Xbox One as of today.

    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.

    Respawn delivers us one of the best new IPs for competitive online multiplayer lovers, with one of the most dynamic and entertaining games of the past few years. It’s not a perfect result primarily due to an unsatisfying technical performance and a shoddy campaign, but it’s undoubtedly a must buy if you’re into multiplayer gaming.

    Tomb Raider's reboot is definitely a success delivering a deep, adrenalinic and spectacular game with a new and charismatic Lara Croft. Our main complaint is with the lack of greater scale puzzles and more challenging ones, something the game should have retained from its predecessors.

    Blizzard's new game represents everything a hack'n'slash lover could desire: Diablo III's involving story, a charismatic villain like Malthael and lots of additions to the original game. If you never played Diablo III, you can't miss this.

    If it wasn't for the poor online experience, Mortal Kombat would have been this gen's king of fighting games. The sheer quantity and quality of contents is staggering, greatly above genre standards, and the return to the series' proven 2D gameplay make this game a must buy for every fighting games lover.

    An an usual game, with a mature and touching plot in a fantastic and dangerous world. You'll need some time to get used to the unique double-character control system, but that's a tiny gem you shouldn't miss.

    SF III: Third Strike Online Edition manages to offer the same awesome feelings of the original game, together with a rich set of extras and solid online gameplay.

    Ninja Theory succeeded in re-imagining a storied franchise making it fresher while keeping it very satisfying to be played, and the new Dante proves to be a successful character: we love his new boastful, poser British style. It could have been a bit longer and sported better graphics, but it's surely a suggested buy.

    We liked all the sea based activities: battles are challenging and deeper than before, underwater wrecks exploration is a nice addition and every pirate stories fan will find much to like here. Nevertheless, with Black Flag the series shows some fatigue especially in the ground sections like combat and the free-running mechanics, leaving us hoping for a strong overhaul starting with the next game.

    A welcome improvement of the original game with a more distinctive and catchy visual style, local multiplayer, a great tracklist and better movements tracking. We're still missing online play, though.

    A very good action-RPG, with a classical gameplay enriched by an awesome artistic design and great weapons variety.

    A massive game, highly refined with many modes and a perfectly balanced gameplay and with a very high longevity: undoubtedly the best title in the series and best boxing game out there. Great in singleplayer, addicting in multiplayer.

    A brilliant tribute to Oddworld Inhabitants' debut game, still highly entertaining despite the almost 20 years from the original game also thanks to a refined control system and a more friendly save system. Unmissable.

    An undoubtedly successful next-gen makeup operation, delivering rich and vibrant graphics on an already great game. Nevertheless, this is a game suited only for those who never played the original one: the revamped graphics aren't enough to justify the admittance price if you already played it.

    Rockstar has yet again delivered a very high-grade production, with unique and cinematic storytelling, a deeply involving and intense gameplay experience and a very satisfying and original multiplayer. A must buy: you'll be entranced.

    Definitely the best hockey simulation around, thanks to a great AI and an excellent technical production. Highly suggested for every NHL fan.

    Forza Horizon 2 amazes for the sheer quantity and quality of its contents, from the breathtaking vistas to the many single and multiplayer modes. Tons of realistically reproduced cars, spectacular weather effects and an highly entertaining experience with a great sense of freedom concur to make it one of the must-buy games of this generation.

    • 88 Critic Score
    A must buy for every fighting games fan: violent, contents-rich and with a very good - even if a bit on the short side - story. Its only real flaw is the weak netcode, yet better than the one in the previous game.
