    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.

    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.

    A real interactive episode of the TV series, with the same well-known atmosphere, storytelling and dramatic turns of events. Telltale should work more on its engine and animations though, as the game lacks in details and suffers of clunky animations. Even the gameplay could use a renovation, after several years of the same formula.

    A successful mix of multiple genres, from action-RPGs to rogue-like to card games, make Hand of Fate a pretty unique title, even if it's with some technical problems. Definitely suggested to anyone looking for a very original experience.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    An highly entertaining football simulation with plenty of modes, great graphics and a deep gameplay capable to adapt both to rookie players and experts. Undoubtedly one of the best games in the series.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A very good children's game, thanks to the level of immersion with the stories and interaction with the characters it can provide. If you're looking for a non-violent, involving and even with some educative aspects game for your kids, this might be one of your best bets.

    A good mix of simulation and arcade gameplay with a great graphical fidelity, EA Sports MMA manages to reproduce all the fetures of mixed martial arts without scaring away the player wit too complex combos or controls.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A great starting point for the episodic series, with an involving story and deep characters: it will surely please every lover of story-focused games. Our main complaint is about the complete lack of italian localization, expecially seen the game's deep focus on storytelling.

    If you love old school survival horrors, The Evil Within won't disappoint you: Mikami delivers us a twisted adventure, highly varied and full of memorable encounters and environments, capable of thrilling us until the very last moments.

    Yet another step forward for the LEGO games, with new gameplay elements and a great cast of characters that help it to stay on top of TT Games' line-up. Nonetheless, the series starts to look a little bit tired and in need of important changes and improvements.

    Uber Entertainment did a good job on creating Monday Night Combat, wisely mixing many of the best elements of online multiplayer shooters and adding a strong co-op component. It's an entertaining and energetic game, and it'll be able to conquer every shooter fan.

    A pleasant surprise, with a very good and varied gameplay and very good graphics. One of the most entertaining games of these last months.

    Dead Rising 2: Case Zero offers us a great taste of what we'll find in Dead Rising 2, even if it ends up being too short.

    DeathSpank maintains Gilbert's creative and ironic vein, making a parody of many of the fantasy RPG clichés. The co-op mode, great graphics, very enjoyable gameplay and a very good longevity (for an Arcade game) make DeathSpank a worth buy.

    Ubisoft packaged a great game both for single and multiplayer lovers, fully shifting the series to the cover based TPS domain but keeping intact its tactical soul. Only a dull and generic story prevents it from shining more - something we wouldn't expect from a Tom Clany family title.

    A great action game and surely the best zombie game this generation, so far.
