    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.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider successfully builds upon the already good previous episode, delivering a rock-solid experience with a compelling story, gorgeous visuals and an open world packed full of things to do. Our only complaint is about the still too simplistic puzzles, but it's definitely a game every lover of this genre should look forward to playing.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Rocksteady ends the Arkham trilogy with a real masterwork: a game full of dramatic turns of events, highly polished, with a varied gameplay and rich of things to do. It will be hard to be disappointed with it.

    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.

    Vast and gorgeous environments full of highly varied missions together with an involving plot, brilliant characters and a deep and satisfying combat system make Dragon Age: Inquisition one of the best RPGs to date. Unmissable.

    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.

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection isn't just a simple re-publishing of old games: it's an opera omnia that gives us a comprehensive and structured view on the past of the series and reminds us why those games are considered amongst of the best ones in their genre. Unluckily it's hindered by many problems in the multiplayer department, something that will surely be resolved but, at the time of writing, makes it simply unplayable online.

    PES 2016 proved to be the best and more mature game in the franchise since may years, resulting to be highly enjoyable even by non PES fans. Anyway it still retains some historical problems like too few official licenses and ease of scoring a shoot from the distance.

    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.

    An incredible narrative experience, with a great script and packed full of moving moments. And with a great artistic design and a flawless soundtrack choice, it's the game every story-driven games lover must play.

    A successful mix of genres, with an adrenalinic gameplay and lots of content.

    Crysis 2 manages to deliver us one of the best graphics on Xbox 360, coupled with a varied, compelling end extremely rewarding gameplay. A game that can proudly walk amongst the best FPSes in this generation: a must buy.

    An impressive retro games collection, probably the best to date. Not only does it provide a great tour of the history of video games, but each game is enriched with additional challenges, rewind capabilities and lots of behind the scenes videos.

    A great porting of a beautiful game, and a great deal for its price too: if you never played it before, it's a must buy. And even if you already apreciated it seven years ago, you'll really enjoy going back to Hillys in its revamped look.

    Arguably the best tennis game around today, with a deep gameplay and a very good learning curve, great graphics and rich single and multiplayer modes.

    • 88 Critic Score
    The single player campaign is blessed by stunning visuals but falls with a dull story and a too short experience: where the game really shines is the multiplayer area, with very entertaining gameplay and modes, even if it lacks some polish that could have made it even better.

    UFC Undisputed 2010 is an astounding fighting game, with an extremely deep gameplay experience, many play modes and, most importantly, many gameplay changes. The only downside could be a higher difficulty level, so confront it only if you're willing to spend some hours to master all the controls and the fighters' moves.

    AC III successfully fulfills fans' expectations, satisfyingly bringing to and end the main plots open in the previous games and introducing some spectacular news over an already rich play offering. We would have liked a less rushed storytelling on Desmond's side with more action missions, while the historic setting could prove to be not as charming for European gamers; it's however a great new episode in Ubisoft's series and a sure must buy.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A visually awesome game, with a demanding but highly satisfying gameplay. If you aren't afraid of an unforgiving and old school flavored experience, it's a strongly recommended buy.

    Halo 5: Guardians shines thanks to its great environments and level design; the story is satisfying and even surprising, but we would have liked a deeper characterization for the new Spartans, and while online co-op is great, we miss local split-screen. Where the game really flexes its muscles, though, is in the multiplayer modes: Warzone is a brilliant and addicting new addition, while Arena gets rid of many complexities of the past offering us a very straightforward, solid and rewarding competitive experience.

    The perfect game for every Metallica and Thrash/Heavy Metal fan, also thanks to the subtle but important gameplay improvements introduced by Neversoft. It's a pity that the absence of support for the pre-existing DLC songs library forces us to always keep a copy of GH: World Tour at hand.
