    Betrayer is certainly an atypical FPS both in visual style and in the environment, both in gameplay that mixes exploration, combat, and search for clues in a particular way.

    Among the launch games for the PS4, this is definitely a title to be taken into serious consideration. But, at the same time, you have the distinct feeling that the next few FPS for this new console will wipe out the memory of Killzone: Shadow Fall in a matter of two or three years.

    Just Dance 4 is the only title in its category available for Wii U, that makes it quite mandatory for every player looking for a dancing game, luckily this latest installment in the series offers a good variety of songs and a nicely crafted frame for them. The accuracy in translating players movements offered by the Wiimote is slightly below that of the Xbox 360 version, but the overall experience is fun even if the Wii U Gamepad isn't pushed in its capabilities.

    Assassin's Creed: Rogue is not just a shameless commercial operation. Yes, it uses the same assets of last year and yes, it really brings nothing new. But the plot has been able to reveal some nice surprises, magnifying the lore of this famous saga in a way that we could've never imagined.

    It is not easy to judge a product like Madagascar Kartz for Nintendo DS. The Activision’s game seems pleasant and well structured. The sympathy of the characters, very welcome extras, a good technician and a good mechanical compartment make everything positive. If, however, inevitably, we compare the product with Mario Kart DS, the views change. The Nintendo title appears in fact definitely superior in all points of view and without doubt.

    This cinematic action game is the result of several action classics melted together, without any alchemy. The final product is indeed unpolished and unaccomplished, split between over-the-top quick time events, and repetitive hack’n’slashing. It doesn’t lack personality, it’s more a matter of unbalancing in the features.

    Tomb Raider Underword: Lara’s Shadow is an interesting second DLC, presenting a totally different approach to the game, thanks to a gameplay in this new level, more action oriented. The abilities of the new main character are a nice introduction, but at the same time will split the gamers in fan of the fresh gameplay and detractor of the new direction. Nevertheless, Lara’s Shadow is a must have for everyone who want to follow the story of the beautiful heroine.

    Despite the not-so-bad first impressions, Bionic Commando is a disappointing game. Linearity is not a drawback by itself, it's more about the way it has been pushed into the game, which often delivers loads of frustration... Long and frequent loading times, lousy A.I., and inaccurate controls just confirm that this is not a Capcom game, but more a Grin one. Let's hope Capcom itself will be on the next RAD Spencer incarnation: all it needs is some polish.

    Dungeon Raiders is the classic interesting title that seems almost out of nowhere. Cyanide published an adventure full of humour and ideas that seem inspired at certain stages of the first classic Zelda. A structure of this type, based solely on solving dungeon could convince fans of the genre. The marginal defects mentioned, a few bugs and a slight inaccuracy in the controls, are not so great as to prohibit the purchase of the game. Dungeon Raiders amused us and appears as a title suitable for those who love for an intelligence game in a context action that is less static than the classic puzzle games.

    Although it may be a discreet strategic/tactical game Jagged Alliance: Back in Action is nearly completely different from Jagged Alliance 2. The encounters with enemies are no longer turn-based, but instead there's a real-time approach sided by a new Plan & Go system. With it you can plan the next actions of the mercenaries that we control, a feature that prompts us to reflect and study the battlefield as you'd expect from a title like that. On the other hand, because of the ridiculous AI and general inferiority when compared to Jagged Alliance 2, Back in Action is just a mediocre title and not the remake that could've been.

    Command and Conquer 4 brings some major twists in the gameplay; a brave and admirable choice, sadly not supported with adequate testing and know-how. The battles feel too fast-paced, amassing big armies always wins over strategy and the overall magic of the saga feels lost.
