    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    An evolutionary step in Codemasters' series, with great improvements in almost every area. Unmissable by every Formula One lover.

    A very original game, both from the gameplay and artistic points of view; what keeps it from being a real masterpiece are its simplicity and repetitiveness in objectives. It's however highly suggested to everyone looking for different and innovative gaming experiences.

    F1 2011 is a good step forward in the series with better driving model and simulation, great graphics and some nice ideas on the gameplay side. The experience is only partially ruined by the high loading times and some unexplainable pauses when entering and leaving the pit stops. It remains however a must-have for every F1 fan.

    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.

    If you're used to the classic NfS style with its extreme customization and its barebones arcade style, Criterion's game could reveal itself as an unwelcome change; however, despite some not very good gameplay choices it's a very entertaining and engaging racing game.

    DJ Hero revealed to be very entertaining even for people usually not into the DJ and hip-hop scene: we've got a long tracklist full of little gems, with a well projected and solid controller. The downsides are the too few playing modes and some weird freezes when in the songs selection menus. However it's a good start, upon which the developers will be able to build a successful franchise: if you're tired of your plastic guitars and batteries, this will give you a breath of fresh air.

    Bulletstorm manages to distinguish itself in the FPS crowd thanks to its desecrating humor and a shooting style that allows people to enjoy killing in a hundred different ways, even co-operatively. A very entertaining game, sporting some great environments.

    One of the best games of the year and a very long and compelling experience. Too bad for some nasty bugs, that we hope will be fixed soon.

    Excessive, vulgar, absurd, ultra-violent, embarassing: Saints Row: The Third's charme resides in its uniquely ironic and ill-mannered style, but supported by strong structure and gameplay.

    Metro Redux desn’t only upgrade the original games visuals but does a very good job in improving their gameplay too. And with its perfect price point, it’s impossible not to recommend it to any lover of story-driven FPSes.

    Borderlands is a successful experiment, managing to introduce some fresh elements in the quite static FPS landscape. The gameplay mechanics and its original graphics make it fresh and entertaining, suitable both for FPS fans and the people who loves Diablo-style RPGs. If you're willing to play it cooperatively with (up to four) your friends, Borderlands will shine in its best shape.

    FIFA 14 confirms itself as the best football sim around. A great and improved gameplay and many play modes make it a worthwhile buy on Xbox 360 even with the next-gen version looming.

    Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes HD is a successful porting of the NDS game, with sharp graphics and a very entertaining gameplay. RGP lovers won't like its excessive simplification, but if you like strategy, fantasy and puzzle games, you should try it.

    A real multi-sensorial video gaming experience, something different from everything else and with a very definite artistic soul. It isn't however a game for everyone: just five levels feel too little for a retail game and only the ones willing to repeat them over and over harvesting for points will make the game more durable. Notwithstanding, it remains a gem of rare beauty that would be a pity missing.

    A great action game that doesn't invent anything new but pushes the gas on speed, adrenaline and spectacularity without a single pace or quality drop. Everything is graced by a very good technical side, with astounding bos battles and a rock-solid frame-rate. Its only drawback is its short and trivial story.

    Codemasters managed to recreate the main aspects of the F1 championship, with a very good and enjoyable career, a driving model suitable for both newbies and expert drivers and great graphics expecially in wet conditions. Too bad fore some annoying bugs that worsen the overall experience.

    A very satisfying sequel, vast and blessed by a great level design, both gameplay and art-wise. Only a slightly disappointing story and some camera problems keep it from reaching higher heights.
