    A nice game, for a very young public but that sometimes will even please the nostalics of old 2D platform games. Surely suitable for kids and families willing to relive the movie adventures with Sid and friends.

    A fair co-op shooter, full of funny moments but not standing out in any particular area. Only for side scrolling shooters uber-aficionados.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    A fun and engaging game troubled by a lacking technical production, even if Rebellion made a good job trying to overcome it with a great environments design. And in view of its more tactical and stealth approach, we would have liked a less linear and driven levels structure too.

    A good arcade rally game, but not too different from the previous episode, with too little content and forgettable audio.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A good "ballistic destruction" game, with functional and well-thought motion controls and overally satisfying gameplay. With better artistic and level/puzzles design could have been a real must-have.

    A decent match 3 game with a good amount of contents, but feeling uninspired and with a clunky control system.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 63 Critic Score
    An interesting 2D retro horror experiment, graced by an interesting story but unluckily dragged down by too-boring-and-uncomfortable gameplay.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 73 Critic Score
    A nice and inventive rhythm/platform game, even if a tad repetitive.

    Doom 3 still manages to give us some great emotions, but it didn't age too well and the always present flashlight just worsens the general feeling.

    Nowhere Studios' game has got as many qualities as defects: the brilliant artistic design and the good environmental puzzles get counter-balanced by lots of bugs and imprecise controls. All in all, it's definitely a game worth trying for Limbo-like games lovers.

    Rise & Shine offers a great visual look with lots of cameos and references to the video gaming world, all coupled with a good and challenging action-platform gameplay. The good action phases get hampered by more repetitive and long puzzle moments or by some frustrating trial and error sequences, though. But when it manages to really shine, it can be a great action game.

    Knee Deep features an interesting noir murder story narrated as a theatrical performance, but with a too low level of interaction only limited to dialogues and a few overly easy mini-games. The absence of foreign (Italian, in this case) localization with very colloquial and slangy dialogues doesn't help, either.

    Despite its interesting premise and good artistic design, Song of the Deep fails to deliver the metroidvania experience we hoped for, with a too heavy backtracking and enduring and boring battles. It's by no means a bad game and fans of the genre should be able to enjoy it, but this is not the Insomniac Games' Ori and the Blind Forest we hoped for.

    It's got the great Tony Hawk's classic gameplay and good online support, but with too little in the way of content and no local multiplayer it's a half-successful revival.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A solid investigative adventure with one of the most famous and charismatic literary characters.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    An average title suited only to hardcore TBEP fans, lacking enough variety and features to please the broader dancing games lovers crowd too.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A funny adventure for kids and grow-ups, with a great accuracy level to the original cartoon.

    A classic that only old school game lovers will fully appreciate. Its slow and repetitive gameplay and high - almost frustrating - difficulty levels could put off many gamers.

    Afro Samurai shines on one side for its great artistic value, with some of the best cel-shaded graphics seen to date and great music and dubbing, but on the other side we find very boring gameplay, unable to provide us a good challenge level. The game will be mainly appreciated by the fans of the original manga/anime, while all the others will also have problems to follow the story, due to an inconsistent storytelling.

    A compelling, complex and well designed puzzle game, but it stumbles in its controls: zooming in and out and panning between different flocks is rather uncomfortable on console controls and will demand some patience from the player.

    A game with great potential, heavily hindered by some serious technical problems. Overkill Software did nothing to improve the original game's lacklustre A.I., while one month after release it still is almost unplayable online due to very frequent disconnects and errors.

    Gat out of Hell lack the deep humor that characterized Saints Row IV, and its almost non-existent story make it more a collection of random missions than a proper story epilogue. It's still enjoyable thanks to the new powers and a solid gameplay, but it remains far from the original game's quality.

    With several very good arcade games, Capcom Digital Collection is a valid choice for everyone who still haven't bought them via Xbox Live.

    Farming Simulator 17 is a pretty accurate sim, but its complete lack of any challenge or "gaming" element makes it quickly boring.

    The Godfather II represents for many aspects a missed chance, especially regarding the new management part, too superficial and unsatisfying. The technical aspects perfectly line up with the overall mediocrity of this new EA Games production, but the action part revealed to be quite fun, especially the executions, even if it gets quickly old due to its repetitiveness. The game doesn't live up to the higher standards of some of the latest EA Games productions, and for a brand like this it's a real pity.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Some debatable design choices, like the lack of any difficulty setting and multiplayer mode, together with its dumb enemies, make it a very frustrating experience that even the most expert strategists will struggle with.

    A good tie-in for Disney-Pixar's flic, entertaining and well-balanced for kids.

    The Escapists: The Walking Dead adds some interesting mechanics to the base title, but as a TWD game it's a bit of a letdown due to a very weak storytelling and repetitive gameplay.

    • 68 Critic Score
    Based on an interesting idea - a shooter with just one shot/bullet available - Wondershot proves to be funny for local play with friends but lacks variety and depth to keep people going back at it over time.

    HoPiKo offers us charming visuals and sound design, but it finally turns out in a very frustrating experience due to its impossible requirement of pixel-perfect aiming with an analog stick, and an almost sadistic level design.
