    A quite satisfactory experience that immerses us fully in the world of programming without requiring hundreds of lines of code. It adapts perfectly to object-oriented programming, although with much simpler concepts achieved thanks to 'nodon'. Without a doubt, a great stimulant for your imagination.

    Although Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection does a good job improving the gameplay in general terms thanks to the combination of 60 FPS and 4K/1080p, it lacks significant changes regarding the controls. Unfortunately, the collection does not shine as bright as it could had it been improved at a higher degree, especially when these past few years have seen the successful launch of many great hack n' slash games.

    Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is, on one hand, a sublime experience regarding the technical aspects, one which fully utilizes PS5's hardware in order to become the most 'next-gen' thing up until now. On the other hand, it is also much more than a simple showing of Sony's new console power: it is a game with both a heart and a soul, a love letter to the whole Ratchet & Clank franchise.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 doesn't revolutionize the stealth genre, but it doesn't have to: it's a game that knows its objectives and, because of that, manages to become a really fun adventure. Despite lacking a good story and having some noticeable technical flaws, it's one of the most enjoyable sniper and infiltration games that the industry has to offer.

    Guilty Gear -Strive- becomes one of the best launches of 2021 and, at the same time, one of the biggest references for the fighting genre. Arc System Works delivers a new masterpiece that, despite some bad design choices, is as flawless as enjoyable, recommendable for newcomers to this style of games and for veterans that are used to combat titles.

    Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is an expansion that has great ideas, but its lack of polish and content prevails over its innovation. As of today, we recommend to wait for its acquisition until Frontier Developments, as it sure will, refines its functionalities, then settling it as one of the most complete MMO of the industry.

    Resident Evil 8 Village becomes one of the best games of 2021 due to a couple of main reasons: first, it polishes the formula of its predecessor, and second, it provides an essence like no other in the whole franchise. Ethan Winters' new adventure is a sublime work that shines whether it is regarding its storytelling or the gameplay; from the characters to the general atmosphere, it manages to entice us from the very first moment, distinguishing itself as a standalone story but, at the same time, finding its place within one of the most relevant IP in the industry.

    Miitopia's main weakness may be that, for an RPG, it lacks depth of gameplay. Nonetheless, it manages to shine bright despite it all thanks to its MII. The fact that we, as players, can become the main characters alongside family and/or friends, thus creating altogether a charismatic group of heroes, it's indeed its biggest virtue.

    Biomutant tries to imitate what we have seen so far in games like The Witcher 3 or the recent entries of the Assassin's Creed franchise... but with a lower budget. Even if its open world is indeed interesting, Biomutant has some clear issues such as a lack of variety in the enemies department, a repetitive gameplay, a progression system with not much to offer and a poor narrative that, in the long run, hurts the general gameplay. However, it manages to still stand throughout all this due to its less than 20 hours duration as well as its magnificent visual aspect, although in the end it simply provides an experience that probably won't stand out much... for better or worse.

    Knockout City is a fun multiplayer video game that takes advantage of a well-designed playability, and very accessible mechanics that work very well. Considering it's a game as a service, it is inevitable that the question arises as to whether it will have enough personality to be considered a success, and although the base is good and the developers have great plans for the future, there are certain superficial elements that deserve to be explored in greater depth.

    Days Gone lands on PC as the second PlayStation Studios exclusive to make the multiplatform leap. The port has no major issues, hence providing a remarkable adventure with Deacon at the helm. Whether you have a PC fully prepared for top performance or a more modest one, the fact remains that the Days Gone port is a pretty recommendable experience.

    Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is the perfect way to experience what once became a turning point for videogames. BioWare's 'magic' is once again at its best thanks to improved graphics and gameplay as well as a collection of content like no other. Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, thus, stands as a must-have in this new age of videogames.

    Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir & Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind provide us with two remarkable stories. Furthermore, artistically the game is impeccable, which is due to its polished anime-like graphics as well as its tracks and voice acting.

    Given that Returnal was not amongst the most anticipated upcoming games of 2021, carrying a sort of underdog label, it is a massive surprise. Housemarque has carried out its most ambitious project and, although it has slight shortcomings, it is one of the games that best use the DualSense and PS5 characteristics, thus becoming an essential pick for both shooters and roguelikes fans alike. And, of course, it's very addictive.

    Exploring a world full of Pokémon, vast landscapes, and an impressive number of possibilities for interaction with and with each other is something any fan of the series should dream of. Maybe New Pokémon Snap presents a simple gameplay, but in which it can be deepened to immortalize an infinite number of unique moments and snapshots worthy of belonging to any nature photographer.

    It Takes Two improves on previous Hazelights games, setting aside cinematics and betting on 'a game that has been rebuilt onto a toy'. Gameplay-wise the game is excellent: it has a ton of variety, and it is as surprising as fun until the very end. Nevertheless, the story itself is unable to properly talk about love or relationships in any way, and so it kind of puts a dent on a work that would otherwise have been a must-play experience.

    Monster Hunter Rise introduces several new gimmicks such as the wirebug and the Canyne that further improve the depth of the gameplay, becoming thus essential tools for future entries of the franchise. Monster Hunter Rise is, without a doubt, the definitive hunting experience in Nintendo Switch.

    Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town is a missed opportunity to make the series a recognized IP. Lots of bugs, mechanics copied from New Horizons poorly implemented, and a boring progression system. The video game is saved by its graphics and its relationship system.

    In The Climb 2 the gameplay has been polished and the game has improved overall, and there are also new maps to provide further challenges, which works just fine mechanically as well as visually. Even if regarding new content there is not much to consider this a sequel, it still is an enjoyable experience for VR.

    Harvest Moon: One World is the result of mixing a great fantasy adventure with farm managing elements. It is not a masterpiece as such, but it will be of the preference of both farming simulator lovers as well as those who want to get a first taste of the genre.

    Ys IX: With Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, Falcom has once again created a really fun JRPG. In this installment of the saga, enough new features are added to make the game experience even better than the previous one, and despite being weighed down by its graphics, this aspect does not become a barrier that prevents us from enjoying everything that the game has to offer.

    If Super Mario 3D World was a masterpiece for Wii U, in this Nintendo Switch’s version it is confirmed again. Not only that, but Bowser's Fury, the unreleased expansion that includes this adaptation, should materialize in a new iteration of Super Mario in the future because it has a lot to say. Two great games, at the price of one?

    Tarsier Studios introduces Little Nightmares 2 with kind of a continuist approach yet still managing to surprise us. The game is backed by an improved narrative, exquisite gameplay and an excellent design that, altogether, portray an experience whose only flaw is but a battle system that does not merge well with the rest of the elements in play.

    Control was already a good game before Ultimate Edition, with obvious negatives but impressive gameplay, but Control Ultimate Edition in PS5 is amazing: graphically it is in a whole other level, with a very stable performance at 60fps (if you set the performance mode) and a good resolution (1440p). However, the best part is how Control Ultimate Edition takes advantage of the DualSense features such as the adaptive triggers or the haptic feedback.

    The Medium is a game with neither big flaws nor anything it really excels at. The gameplay is quite simple and the story kind of reaches a mid point in between a horror book and a socio-political discourse that do not really match. In the end, it all amounts to a mediocre game by Bloober Team that, most likely, will have been forgotten by the end of the year.

    Half-Life Alyx is proof that Valve is still at its best creatively. This emblematic franchise has been brought to virtual reality; in Alyx we enjoy an immersion never seen before, with comfortable and intuitive mechanics as well as excellent visuals and atmosphere that accompany this interesting adventure within the iconic saga.

    Cyberpunk 2077 retains its gunplay, open-worldness and its many elements that really make it stand out as an RPG. Nevertheless, its performance is abysmal, at times making it near unplayable. CD Projekt RED's fans do not deserve all of the crashes and bugs that Cyberpunk 2077 is riddled with.

    Panic Button pulls off yet another outstanding port for Nintendo Switch in Doom Eternal. This version comes to Nintendo Switch with a ton of technical consessions and sometimes way too many adaptations to make it work, but in the end it stands as an overall solid and rewarding experience.
