    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.

    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.

    Activision did it again: the new Skylanders game feels fresh thanks to the new Trap mechanic and is still great fun both for children and their parents. Our wallets are doomed.

    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.

    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.

    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 clich├ęs. 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.

    An entertaining and well-thought-out game, adding interesting new elements to the famous Angry Birds formula.

    If you never played MvC 3 and love fighting games, this is a recommended buy with a larger roster and more balanced gameplay. But if you already own the previous game, the added content isn't enough to justify the expense. The added fighters aren't charismatic enough and the new Galactus mode just feels like a gimmick. Nothing that couldn't be made with a simple DLC.

    Square Enix made a good job in listening at fans requests and bringing us a better game than FF XIII, even though the combat system is still too similar to the previous one; the involving story, a greater focus on exploration and the many things to do make it an advised buy for every fan.

    LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is definitely the best LEGO game to date. More varied, reflexive and visually beautiful than its precursors, it's still inheriting some genetic defects from them, like a slight repetitivity and the absence of online co-op and online user-created maps sharing.

    This game manages to maintain all the charm and ironic atmosphere of the original movies, delivering us a very enjoyable game that even who never saw the movies could appreciate. If you're long time fans of the Ghostbusters, you won't be disappointed.

    Great fun for partying with friends or even for working out alone, Just Dance 2014 delivers a fresh and immediate experience. It only lacks a tutorial mode to better learn every single move: it would have been perfect with it.

    Battlefiled 4 lacks in the single-player campaign with a dull and forgettable story, while its still remains a very strong experience in its multiplayer side. Unfortunately it gets dragged down by several bugs capable of impacting the entire experience with hangs, savegame corruption and hitbox problems that we hope will be quickly be fixed.

    A solid FPS which manages to combine its classic roots with some modern elements, offering us good action variety and some outstanding characters. It could have done better with a deeper plot and some climatic exploration sections, but it won't disappoint once you put the first, boring, couple of hours behind you.
