    A brilliant game with great art, level design and depth, let alone the very high longevity for a XBLA title. A real surprise, advised to every side-scrolling hack'n'slash lover.

    Activision managed to successfully renovate its franchise, keeping it fresh with small but significant changes. One of the most recommended games for kids, especially if you’re planning to play with them, this holiday season.

    An incremental sequel over the first game, OlliOlli 2: XL Edition doesn't take too many risks reusing the same old formula but with lots of new contents and a new local-only multiplayer mode. If you liked the first game, this won't disappoint.

    Coming back to Sera has been a real pleasure: Gears of War: Ultimate Edition reminds us of how good (and still relevant) was its game and level design.

    A real revolution in dancing rhythm games, entertaining and enjoyable by everyone. Too bad for a lacking multiplayer with the absence of online play support.

    A solid 2D platform-puzzler full of stealth elements and nice ideas. It gets held back by some too basic and somewhat imprecise controls, but it's however a valid game for this genre's lovers.

    A fascinating, involving and surprising adventure, with huge artistic values and a fresh, strongly European new take on the classic J-RPG formula.

    • 88 Critic Score
    An unique game, capable of capturing the player's attention for many, many hours. The lack of a more guided and objective-based structure could alienate the less creative and patient players, though.

    Except for some slowdowns during gameplay, and some online connection problems, NBA 2K10 has been made with astounding care: very deep modes, great graphics and an improved gameplay guarantee an excellent experience for every fan of this sport.

    The definitive South Park video game. Obsidian built an extremely solid gameplay foundation on which they could erect Trey and Parker's game vision. The result is a surprising story, full of the series' irreverent comic sense and very satisfying to play: if you love South Park, you can't miss this.

    A real surprise, with an highly entertaining local co-op mode but fully enjoyable solo too.

    Shift 2 successfully hits its target: delivering an exciting racing experience, highlighting all the aspects that make magic in motorsports. Hardcore racing lovers won't find it a super-simulative experience even in the new Elite mode, but its accessible driving model, spectacular visuals and great challenge level will please every fan of the genre.

    A recommended collection to the ones who loved the series in the past and are missing Felicia & co, or to the ones who are willing to try one of the very first great Capcom beat-em-ups.

    Thanks to Bizarre's passion and expertise, Blur brings some welcome freshness to the arcade racers genre: it's great for online drivers, while it could have used some more depth for the single player experience.

    Yet one great iteration for EA's franchise, with subtle but important improvements and capable of fully engaging the player from the very first minutes.

    A surprisingly valid and entertaining story, capable of casting a new light on Borderlands' world. Too bad for its technical problems like huge stutters and the complete absence of an Italian localization, even in subtitles.

    Brütal Legend revealed itself to be a very entertaining and somewhat original game, with a very charismatic star that we hope to see again in the future. A real must-have for every Heavy Metal fan thanks to the great soundtrack, but very enjoyable from all the others too. Our only complain is with the game graphic, a little bit unpolished and with a precarious frame-rate.

    A valid remaster job, with good visual improvements and tons of new contents due to the added mods support. Owners of the original game are a bit let down due to the lack of a savegame import feature and high price point, but it's definitely recommended to anyone who never played the game so far.

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena revealed itself to be an extremely gratifying experience, mainly thanks to the great gameplay variety and Riddick's bullish charm. If you were missing a good stealth game, even if not despising FPS action, this is your game. We absolutely suggest it to everyone who didn't play Escape from Butcher's Bay, but even if you did, the Dark Athena campaign will give you about ten hours of fresh enjoyment.

    Black Rock managed to create a new contender in the arcade racing arena: Split/Second: Velocity brings us a good combination of stylish graphics, spectacular gameplay and perfect difficulty balance. If you're looking for a distinctive and unique racing game, you won't be disappointed.

    NBA 2K15 manages once again to keep up with its already high standards, with further improvements and refinements and some welcome new features like the facial scan and pre-match shows. A must have game for any basketball lover.

    343 Industries made a great job in refreshing the first Halo graphics, making it a game capable of competing even with modern FPSes. It's not perfect mainly due to its 10 years age, but it's highly recommended both to gamers that never had the chance to play the original game and long time fans.

    • 92 Critic Score
    An awesome game, one of the best action games of this gen capable of combining a great story and characters with an adrenaline-fueled and highly satisfying gameplay. Its only flaw is in the short story duration, but if you're willing to test yourselves with higher difficulty levels and VR Missions, it will be worth your money.

    PES 2013 brings some great improvements over the previous titles but it still remains bound to some of its historic problems. It feels like a transition chapter: the beginning of a new course for Konami's series.

    Finally a real strong competitor to Mario Kart outside of Nintendo platforms: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed joins a simple and very intuitive control system to a varied and always entertaining gameplay, with great characters cast and inspired track design.

    Square Enix took a great risk changing all the series core mechanics, but it turned out to be a winning bet: a great technical realization and an over-the-top combat system make this game worth the buy for every Final Fantasy and JRPG fan.

    Even without bringing huge innovations to the table, Far Cry 4 delivers a great and very polished gameplay experience coupled with lush and spectacular environments. Too bad for the forgettable main characters and the unexciting story, something we missed from the previous game in the series. It's a very funny and advised game nonetheless.

    Exactly what we expected from this remake: fans will find in it all the elements that made it a cult game in a new shiny 1080p guise, while who never played it will finally know what all the fuss is about as long as they're willing to forgive some stiff controls.

    Enslaved: Odyssey to the West shines thanks to a very variegated and balanced gameplay and a very compelling and moving story.
