    An immense game, with a lot of things to do that will deliver you many hours of surprising gameplay.

    A very good shooter with great visuals and some interesting RPG contaminations. But the dull story and lack of real innovation in the FPS missions keep it from being the great id Software comeback we were expecting.

    A Live Arcade must have: an addictive unlimited 2D sandbox, capable of entertaining the most creative players for many, many hours.

    A great story. Touching, brilliantly developed end elegantly depicted. Ubisoft shows once again that video games are indeed art and a great storytelling medium.

    • 85 Critic Score
    An original and demanding game, capable of delivering great satisfaction to lovers of stealth and strategy together with a very intense co-op experience.

    One of the best Xbox One indie games so far, with a great base idea and an addicting gameplay. Too bad its duration is a bit on the short side, but if you like Contra-style shooters, you'll love it.

    A good new iteration for the storied franchise, with some improvements to make it more accessible to the genre's newcomers too.

    A great Marvel game, with a stellar cast of characters and the solid and proven LEGO gameplay: unmissable by any true believer. Our main complaint is about the complete lack of localized dialogues in the Italian version of the game, something that highly diminishes its appeal towards the younger gamers.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    A solid and vast game which however feels too similar to the previous one, with a not charming enough main environment, and the story becomes really interesting only in its latter part. Altair and Desmond's storylines manage, however, to keep it interesting to the end, and the final revelations are definitely worth the journey.

    WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2010 is a solid and well made game, capable of delivering hours of entertainment to all the fans of this sport. It isn't the best in the series and the splendour of Here Comes the Pain is still far away, however we consider it the best Wrestling game this generation.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 is undoubtedly the best golf game around, thanks to a precise control system and the great number of features. We'd have liked better graphics, but it's nevertheless a really good game.

    A surprising game that adds to the already solid FC3 gameplay a layer of exhilarating 80s culture parody with great jokes and over-the-top action. It deserves to be followed by a full-fledged, triple-A sequel: Rex Colt has got the potential to be the real, modern heir to Duke Nukem.

    The shift mechanic proved to be unexpectedly good providing lots of destructive fun on the streets of San Francisco, even in the dedicated multiplayer modes. Too bad for a forgettable story: the very good CGI cut-scenes deserved a better canvas to be painted on. It's however a solid and entertaining game, a very good starting point for Ubisoft to build upon.

    A very good game, charismatic, charming and suitable both for children and grown-up Tolkien lovers, whom will find it a very funny, if not challenging, experience.

    • 93 Critic Score
    Yet one more demostration of the great potential of digital delivery: an innovative, inspired and highly satisfying game, capable of proudly standing amongst the best Xbox Live Arcade titles.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A good game, but it feels like a step backwards from the first game in the series: it's lost some of the depth and innovation we were used to, delivering us a more classical and straightforward experience. It sports, however, a good story, even if quite short, and insipred visuals: it deservers to be played.

    Great tracks and high adrenaline levels distinguish RedLynx' new foray in the Trials franchise; the new FMX tricks didn't turn out to be a valuable addition to the series, but the core gameplay stays as addictive as ever.

    Gaijin Entertainment showed hou a very realistic game can be brought on console without the need of mapping the controls on a whole keyboard. The Sim mode is very challenging and entertaining, but the Arcade and Realistic modes allow everyone to enjoy the game without having to master all the aerodynamics laws. Our main complaint is about the missions variety, that start looking a little bit too repetitive at the middle of the game progression.

    Probably calling this game Skate 2.5 or Skate Online would have been more fair. Skate 2 show too less innovation on the previous game, except for the strong push towards online support. Nonetheless, just because it builds upon the strong foundations of the previous game, Skate 2 remains a strong and entertaining experience for every skateboarding lover.

    Sleeping Dogs combines successful gameplay mechanics and a great story creating a well balanced – even if not innovative – and entertaining mix. A very good game, dragged down only by a somewhat short story and little lack of polish. And a good starting point for a successful series for Square Enix.

    • 92 Critic Score
    A unique game that successfully manages to blend the boundaries between action and RPG, delivering us an immediate and engrossing experience. It will disappoint those of you looking for a real challenge, but if all you're looking for is a great adventure to lose yourself in, look no further.

    Skylanders Giants builds on the already good first game adding more polish and a better difficulty balance. It doesn't change the game structure much and gameplay mechanics, but the young gamers won't complain about it. Undoubtedly one of the best games of the season to play with your children.

    If you're looking for some hours of anguish and high tension, don't wait anymore.

    Double Fine Happy Action Theater fully succeeds in offering us a "foolishly entertaining" gaming experience, something we could associate to the video gaming equivalent of a kids playground. Perfect for both playing with children and as a party warmer.

    4A Games managed to deliver a little gem, capable of capturing the gamer with its great story, environments and a really good stealth gameplay. Some glitches, AI problems and a short longevity detract from its overall value, but it's undoubtedly a rewarding experience.

    • 85 Critic Score
    A very solid title, capable of successfully merging the depth and complexity of TES-like RPGs with a more spectacular and satisfying combat system. Nonetheless, it fails to really shine due to a somewhat generic and bland main story, even if the world and its background story are very well crafted.

    Forza Motorsport 5 manages to fully capture the essence of a sport where technology and passion merge in one unique blend. Technical excellence, gameplay depth, a good mix of game modes and the ability to freely explore every car with an extremely realistic rendering makes this the game to buy on Xbox One.

    If played locally, PES 2014 is a great soccer game showing that Konami took the right path for its series rebirth. But as you try getting online, countless problems arise making it hardly playable.

    Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12: The Masters stays on the usual high quality standards the series got us used to, with some very welcome new entries like the caddie and the Augusta Masters. We're just disappointed by a complete lack of support to Kinect the absence of any kind of italian localization.

    Hitman is back and is in great shape. Io Interactive delivered a game suitable to both hardcore fans looking for a challenging experience and new players, thanks to the many options in difficulty and features set; this adds to an highly cinematic experience with a mature story and interesting social features. Probably the best game in the series and one of this gen's best stealth games.
