    WayForward brings a beautiful modern 2.5D look to Shantae's world, with stunning music and a more streamlined gameplay experience. A definite must buy for any lover of side-scrolling platform games.

    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.

    Thanks to a solid and well-tested gameplay coupled with a brilliant portal/character management, the physical assembly of all the pieces and the presence of great franchises like Doctor Who, Portal and Return to the Future, LEGO Dimensions manages to grab the crown of best toys-to-life game around.

    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 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.

    The Bug Butcher sports a funny gameplay mechanic, but it lacks in variety making the play experience quickly repetitive. It's got a very good couch co-op mode, though.

    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 visually brilliant adventure, graced by a very good direction that managed to tighten the storytelling and to get rid of the more boring walking sections in the walking simulator genre. Unluckily, though, we couldn't fully appreciate the surreal and confusing story, even after a second playthrough.

    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 good 1080p collection with one of the best FPSes from last gen and a decent spin-off, with the welcome addition of a local split-screen co-op mode. Other than that, there aren't other noteworthy additions so it's a recommended buy just for the ones who skipped at least one of the two games on last gen consoles.

    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.

    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.

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

    A successful mix of rhythm games and Rez-like rail shooters, adorned by a memorable EDM soundtrack, resulting in an exciting gameplay experience.

    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 good first person puzzle game, with solid - even if not too original - puzzle design and a surprising story. Definitely advised to lovers of Portal-like games.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 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.

    A successful TPS, RPG and online open word mix, with a balanced, spot-on gameplay and lots of details in a visually stunning - and packed full of dramatic stories - Manhattan. The Division offers something for any kind of player, be it a lone wolf, a co-op lover or a competitive gamer, with lots of things to do and great satisfactions due to the deep loot and character evolution system.
