    A colorful journey that leads the player to explore some fantastic biomes and shines thanks to a beautiful soundtrack.

    The Ascent is a true homage to the classic top-down shooter genre that adds some modern features without disrespecting its main inspirations.

    A game with some interesting ideas and concepts, that sometimes manage to provide meaningful content to the players but are too often obscure by the deeply repetitive nature of gameplay and quest design.

    Night Book is lost in the magnum sea of similar productions and you have plenty of titles to play before jumping on the unfortunate protagonist and her cursed book.

    Rich in content and with an excellent artistic direction, Samurai Warriors 5 is aimed at a specific group of fans, but does not disdain to tickle the newbies.

    Neo: The World Ends With You is the widely anticipated sequel of a cult Nintendo DS title and one of the best Action RPGs available on current platforms. Building on its predecessor formula, this sequel introduces a wide variety of content that while being faithful to the original game exceeds it in every aspect. Fans should rejoice: Shibuya is back to stay.

    The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is an HD collection of 3DS titles never released before in the West that tries to reiterate the beloved Ace Attorney formula with an historical-drama flavour. Characters and settings are fleshed out in a brilliant way and yet the gameplay feels too familiar for its own good.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator lands on Xbox with a great porting that, despite a few flaws and a painful UI, recreates the same, magical simulation experience that PC users has enjoyed in the past year, thanks to a great (but not perfect) controller adaptation of the main mechanics and the same additional contents provided in the last few months on PC by Asobo Studio.

    With three heartfelt stories about the meaning of the relationships framed in A Twilight Zone atmosphere, Last Stop is an ambitious interactive comedy-drama which succeeds to deliver its message, even if sometimes at the expense of gameplay experience.

    An Action-RPG full of passion that focuses on simplicity and, for this reason, it is incredibly solid. Level design, attention to detail, art style and soundtrack deserve just applause. Ok, it throws you in an huge labirint without any map, but it can be even a good thing.

    Cris Tales is carried along by a good story and an extraordinary art direction that tell of heroic acts, self-acceptance, courage, revolutions and hopes in a "fairytale about time". His non-linear tale is based on a classic JRPG gameplay but it's able to present itself with its own clear and distinct personality, unique mechanics and good ideas, trying to give depth to the combat system. Unfortunately these possibilities do not match well with the lack of strategic situations and the very high frequency of random encounters does not help to make the most banal encounters less unpleasant. Cris Tales remains a well done game, but could have offered much more.

    A nice turn-based tactical game, simple to understand but hard to master, set in the ever-fascinating Warhammer 40.000 universe. The experience is fun, but just two armies and one campaign don't fully justify the relatively steep price.

    Watch Dogs: Legion - Bloodline is a shallow narrative expansion, with a good storyline undermined by a lazy structure and the choice of giving far less importance to London, which was the best element of the original game.

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is a competent port of one of the most peculiar episodes in the series, remarkable for its world design and for its control scheme.

    The Silver Case 2425 is a tribute to Suda51 and his style. If you love the famous author, we are in front of a unique game. If not, it is difficult to recommend it lightly.

    F1 2021 is the apex point of these last three editions. The simcade gameplay is refined at its best and the new game modes are solid, impressive and fun. In the best F1 year to date since long time, we have the best F1 game ever.

    All in all Armature Studio has done a good job with Where the Heart Leads, offering a story-driven adventure based on choices that influence the story of the protagonist, but not very satisfying in terms of gameplay.

    This sequel is very similar to the first chapter in terms of feel and structure, but that does not mean that it is not a valid and better game: those who have enjoyed the first will surely love Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.+

    Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! compared to the free experience on PC, adds either a lot or nothing, depending on your point of view. Pragmatically one could argue the futility of the expense in the face of mostly identical content available for free. However, the point is not this: whether you want to reward the developers after the experience with the free edition, or in case you want to approach the game using its "improved" version (despite some limitations), Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! remains a work of extraordinary emotional impact.

    Chicory teach everyone else how to tackle some real issues about our society and, ultimately, our life. But its gameplay lacks that spark that made Wandersong great.

    SEGA tried to give a fresh spin to the classic multievent Olympics game and mostly did. The mix of arcade vibes and quite unusual choices in terms of disciplines works well and the game is fun, but its structure is pretty lacklustre and multiplayer is too much limited to shine properly.

    A classic new metroidvania inspired by Hollow Knight. It brings nothing new in the genre, but it makes no errors resulting in a very solid game with well crafted and various mechanics. It will lead you for more than 25 hours through an interesting realm hiding a fine story in it. A gem that simply deserves a place in the Olympus of metroidvanias.

    Mario Golf: Speed Rush combines the well-known Camelot’s pick on Golf (with some substantial changes in the swing) with new gameplay opportunities. In terms of contents, though, it’s not very convincing at this time, with just five real courses and easily forgettable modes.

    Scarlet Nexus offers a fascinating game universe and frames a deep and well-crafted action-RPG, despite some exposure naiveties.

    Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX still remains a difficult platformer, but also an extremely varied and modernized one, with grace and competence in terms of graphics and sound.

    An interesting mix of strategy and real-time action dragged down by unbalanced features and a distinct lack of development time.

    The remastering process didn't address the shortcomings of the gameplay of Legend of Mana. Yet, its vibrant world, full of memorable characters drawn to life by astonishing visuals and new orchestral scores, is as good as ever.

    Once again Pro Cycling Manager struggles to make any real improvements. Despite a relatively solid release, the old bugs remain and the new improvements only justify the purchase for those who have been missing the game for a few years or have never played. Too bad, because the good simulation depth would have deserved more love.

    Dark Alliance is an action game with a fiery soul and brave ambitions, whose gameplay is a little bit undermined by some naive choices and a lackluster balance. It's fun in co-op and depicts with joy the D&D universe, but at day one it's still too unpolished to achieve the glory of the top action RPGs.
    • 85 Metascore

    Chivalry 2 has achieved its goal: while not perfect, it offers a great combat system that it's easy to learn but difficult to master. The game never takes itself too seriously and really shines using its best weapons.
