    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.

    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.

    Ensemble Studios finally achieved a result sought by many developers this gen: creating a true console RTS, easy and amusing to play, yet keeping it highly challenging. Besides this, we get a great Halo story, with charismatic characters and amazing CGI cut-scenes. This game did for the RTS genre what the original Halo did for the FPS, and we're sure it will have a great impact in future games of this kind.

    SSX
    An instantly enjoyable game, with a low learning curve and a good control system, rewarding both for newbies and experts. The excessive difficulty of some competitions and the low variety in play modes could discourage someone, but it remains one of the best games in its kind.

    Blacklist successfully continues on the road taken by Conviction, keeping the core gameplay choices and expanding everything with a more open mission structure, greater focus on stealth gameplay, great replayability and a strong co-op and competitive multiplayer support. Dismissing it as another action-oriented Splinter Cell will be an error: it can be as stealthy and challenging as you want it to be.

    Thanks to its artistic and gameplay values, Catherine stands apart from every other game. If you're looking for a different gaming experience and aren't scared by overly difficult games, it's a sure bet.

    Saints Row IV doesn’t want to set new bars in graphics, storytelling or put hundreds of characters in the same area: it simply wants to be over the top, parodistic, irreverent and fun. And it succeeds, delivering us hours of great fun and satirical sketches. If you appreciate this kind of exaggerated and somewhat vulgar humor, it won’t disappoint you.

    A well balanced game, suited both to fighting games lovers and DC Comics fans, with an outstanding story mode; actually one of the best written and developed stories in the genre.

    NHL 14 continues to improve since the series birth 20 years ago, allowing us to dress the part of real ice gladiators.

    Sledgehammer's debut with Call of Duty doesn't bring the revolution some hoped for, but introduces some welcome changes to the multiplayer experience making it very entertaining and compelling to play. The co-op mode is somewhat of a letdown if compared to the excellent Extinction mode from last year, while the single player campaign proved to be on par for the series even if we would have preferred more open missions and more freedom for the player. It won't disappoint any fan of the series, but it won't convert any of its detractors either.

    A great racing game with brilliant simulation and stunning graphics, capable of adapting to any kind of player from the rookie to the highly experienced. Its limited car fleet and some minor technical issues keep it from being a real must buy, but every racing game lover shouldn't miss on it.

    A very different game from anything else Xbox One has to offer; colorful, hyper-frenzied, spectacular and packed full of hilarious pop culture references. With slightly less repetitive gameplay and maybe a higher challenge level, it would have been perfect.

    Even if with four years behind it, Crysis arrives on Xbox 360 in great shape with a compelling campaign, great environments and one of the best graphics around. Too bad for the complete lack of multiplayer, a lacklustre enemy AI and some bugs and problems here and there, but if you never played this game on PC, it's an highly recommended buy.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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.
