    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.

    Monolith's last game was a real surprise: solid and entertaining, it manages on incorporating other games mechanics in a very effective way, while introducing a real innovation with the Nemesis System. Its only flaw lies in a too short main plot, but it deserves the attention of every LotR and action/RPGs lover.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Definitely the best hockey simulation around, thanks to a great AI and an excellent technical production. Highly suggested for every NHL fan.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    A great candidate for the title of best game in the series thanks to brilliant graphics, great attention to detail, a very immersive story and some well thought-out gameplay innovations. A must for every stealth action lover.

    Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is a good and entertaining Arcade game, especially if played in local co-op. Too bad the game doesn't support (yet, at least) online co-op too.

    Madden NFL 10 goes on with the slow but steady progress of the EA franchise: despite this edition isn't full of big news, the game remains must buy for every Football lover, and thanks to the extensive tutorials it could attract people who are interested but not familiar with this sport.

    Entertaining, fulfilling and never frustrating, Forza Horizon manages to mix the series' well known realism with the light-hearted enjoyment only a free-roaming racer can deliver, becoming probably the best game in the genre so far.

    Capcom managed to deliver a successfully two-sided game: spectacular and accessible for casual gamers, deep and challenging for hardcore gamers.

    Guitar Hero 5 confirms the overall good quality of the series: Neversoft successfully managed to improve and extend the game's interface, modes and "social" features, fully justifying the trailing number 5 in the title. An advised buy especially if you're used to play with friends, at home or online.

    Another great game from The Behemoth: a brilliant platform game with bright humor, great art and a very addictive gameplay. The easy and intuitive level editor is just icing on the cake.

    Definitely the best MMA game around: deep, complex and satisfying, UFC Undisputed 3 improves THQ's series in almost every area, delivering us a must-have game for any ring sports lover. Our only complaint is about the still shaky net-code, an area in which Yuke's should focus all its efforts for the next game.

    Red Faction: Guerrilla revealed to be a pleasant surprise: a very good game capable of dragging and enjoying the player, mainly but not only thanks to the exceptional dynamic destruction tech, and for the adrenalinic multiplayer. Too bad that a forgettable plot and a low longevity kill its aspirations: surely a good game, but could have been much more.
