    BioWare streamlined the whole Dragon Age experience, making it more involving and dynamic than the first one: the great story and dialogue management are amongst the game's higher points, while we would have liked something more from the too basic visuals and level design. A recommended game, even to the most conservative players.

    Thanks to the excellent visuals, brilliant characters and a compelling plot, Tales of Vesperia is a sure bet for all Japanese RPG and fantasy anime lovers: the very good combat system will ensure you to never get bored during the about 40 hours needed to end the main story, without counting in the many side-quests. Too bad, for us italian users, that the game wasn't localized at all: a very important blank, seen the great amount of dialogues involved.

    Judgment places itself between tradition and innovation for the series, with an adrenaline-fueled story and a completely revolutionized multiplayer winking to the most popular online titles. Due to this it probably won't please the most conservative fans but surely deserves to be tried. People Can Fly undoubtedly did good work keeping up the series' high standards.

    An entertaining, highly varied and technically excellent pool game, even if lacking in innovation or new elements for its genre.

    A very good golf simulator, with a high variety of gameplay, even if somewhat complex for newbies. We would have liked a better graphics, not in par with the nice environments offered by other games.

    PES 2011 marks the beginning of a serious comeback for Konami's soccer with many play modes, an improved gameplay and at last a flawless online multiplayer.

    The best Codemasters F1 game so far. The F1 Classics section adds a little touch of magic and emotions to the package, while the core games delivers a great reproduction - if not simulation - of the F1 racing experience.

    DG2 successfully delivers on keeping up the quality of the first game, without revolutionizing the gameplay but adding some welcome new features.

    A great toys idea and, quite surprisingly, a solid and entertaining game, with very nice characters and level design. A good gift for kids.

    Undoubtedly the best wrestling game this gen, thanks to its great signature gameplay and the new physics management engine.

    Prototype revealed itself to be an extremely solid game, capable of satisfying whoever's looking looking for massive doses of superhuman violence. The only letdown is its dull visuals, but if you aren't specifically looking for a graphical masterwork, you'll find it very entertaining.

    Watch Dogs sports an extremely solid gameplay with a good stealth flavor and tons of things to do. It stumbles however in the story area, with an uninteresting plot and quite dull characters, Aiden included. Overall, however, it's a good package, even if it isn't the masterwork we were expecting, and it will undoubtedly be worthy of your time.

    PES 2012 fails to fully persuade, especially if you're looking for a more realistic and simulative play style. The game introduces some welcome features like the on-line fair play system, but fumbles on the ball physics and defense management, with an overly high speed of the actions. Suited for those looking for a more arcade soccer experience.

    State of Decay may be full of bugs and weird problems, but everything disappears once you start smashing heads and go hunting for supplies and ammo. A game really capable of surprising you when you less expect it, even with its anticlimactic ending.

    A very good arcade racer with a sim DNA, very entertaining and satisfying for lovers of drifting and paint swapping, with a great sense of weight in the cars. With a more compelling career mode and a rear-view mirror it would have been perfect.

    An important and very welcome turning point for the series, with a more enjoyable and spectacular gameplay, and a greatly improved storytelling. If you're intrigued by air combat and don't mind a more forgiving and arcade approach, it's a recommended buy.

    Despite lacking the visual wow factor, Dead Rising 3 looks like the more next-geny game of the Xbox One launch line-up thanks to the impressive zombie hordes management and ubiquitous physics simulation. On top of this we get tons of hilarious, foolish fun: if you’ve got an Xbox One, you can’t miss it.

    For survival horror lovers Dead Space 3 is somewhat of a letdown, with a more action-oriented soul and fewer thrills than the previous games. Its strengths lie in the engaging story, good longevity and co-op implementation, but the series' origins seem a bit lost.

    A very good strategy game, probably the best available on console. A very usable control system and innovative gameplay mecanics make it a worth buy for every lover of this genre.

    PES 2010 isn't the final soccer simulation, but it surely manages to entertain us with our friends. It lacks on novelties and the graphics feel a little bit dated, but a couple of very long and involving online modes, the new cards system, a deep schemes creation editor and a finally playable online multiplayer, make PES 2010 a title to not undervalue, which definitely deserves to be enjoyed.

    A great collection witch good storytelling and gameplay, highly advised for those who didn't play Dante's adventures last gen. We would have liked more efforts in remastering the graphics tough, with at least better textures expecially in the first two games.

    The nearest thing to a real flight sim on console. Historic flight combat lovers will find a great game in it, provided that they'll have the patience to work through the long and steep learning curve.

    Alien: Isolation embraces Ridley Scott's original vision, delivering us a claustrophobic survival horror experience with a good stealth side. Unmissable for every Alien and sci-fi horror lover.

    • 89 Critic Score
    A great game, capable of keeping you entertained for many hours also thanks to the involving Quick Match mode and the deep editor; we would have liked a more fleshed out story and a special mode like the Tower of Lost Souls in SC4, but it stays, however, a recommended buy.

    With Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, Techland delivered us an experience worthy of the best Sergio Leone movies: one on one duels and saloon brawls recall to our memory some of the best movies ever seen. A solid story coupled with excellent visuals make the game very enjoying, while on the cons side we find some difficulty spikes that make some scenes quite frustrating.

    A very good console free-to-play experience, even for who wants to keep the experience completely free without recurring to microtransactions.

    A good Sonic game, enteraining and fresh, with great 2D levels and a not so great 3D ones. Suggested to every fan of SEGA's hedgehog.

    Capcom's work doesn't add much important to the original games, and probably it's a good thing: if you're nostalgic, love retro gaming or are simply curious about video games' past, this will be an enjoyable experience.

    A good Live Arcade game and an original take on the tower defense genre, with good variety and an entertaining gameplay, especially if played with friends.

    Codemasters tried to bring on console a real military simulation and we can say it succeeded, giving us more depth in firefights. But it’s a tough game, unsuitable for classic FPS lovers and demanding much patience, dedication and tactic thinking. On our final opinion weigh the IA and technical problems we encountered, coupled with a lackluster online multiplayer. It’s a good start on which we hope the developers will build for a more solid and polished sequel.
