    The second DLC of Nioh 2, Darkness in the Capital, brings a new series of interesting missions, chock full of challenging monsters and inspired bosses. A new weapon adds further value to a very low cost extra.

    You can almost see the decent game Broken Porcelain could have been. At the moment of writing it is a buggy mess that's more frustrating than fun.

    Not the best in the series but still fun and engaging, that comes with a few new gameplay modes, two civilizations and restored graphics.

    Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Heart of the Forest has an intriguing atmosphere and there are many choices that can affect the outcome of the story. Sadly, the story isn't all that memorable.

    Genshin Impact is a pleasant and unexpected surprise. With a perfectly sustainable business model the title of miHoYo is able to offer a complete and fun single player experience, all for free. Of course, the risk of getting caught up in compulsive buying mechanisms does exist, and I'm not cynical when I say that most of the game's revenue comes from this "type" of users. However, you can advance in the main campaign without spending a penny, since the world is set up in an organic way and always full of activities to do. Genshin Impact is therefore a more than discreet title, although its totally free nature could invest it with a higher "perceived value" than it really is.

    After two beautiful shorts, Bithell Games returns with a new take in the solitaires world. The Solitaire Conspiracy, unfortunately, doesn't fulfil its promises: the strategic part of the card game is poor and the story is far worse than the average Bithell story. The core gameplay is ok for a three hours game, but struggles to hold the replayability for too long.

    Taken as a single package Prinny 1-2 exploded and reloaded is not so bad. However, it is impossible to turn a blind eye to the mere porting operation performed by the developers. The two games have been modernized by a bland filter for 2D elements, without any possibility to intervene on the graphics. The result is a slightly blurred image, even in portable mode, which together with the rigid and frustrating gameplay, outline a very lazy and unattractive package.

    FIFA 21 delivers solid and fun gameplay, introducing a lot of small new features in the structure build in the last two years. Even if FUT is always bigger and louder, the best things this year come from Career mode and plain multiplayer mode, where everything flows with a slower and human tempo.

    Ride 4 is one of the best motorcycle racing games ever. Visually great and superb in terms of handling, Milestone did a great job delivering a fantastic experience on the track. The career is a little bit underwhelming in terms of design, but the game is still great to play.

    A nice way to celebrate an all-time classic, Super Mario Bros. 35 successfully implements some kind of battle royale using a very familiar gameplay.

    A love message for Crash Bandicoot's old fans. The new look is great, but at times the difficulty needs to be balanced.

    An extremely good new entry in the Star Wars franchise. An excellent game with three great game modes.

    A very nicely done port of a very nice space sim. IF you love the genre, and perhaps love Firefly too, it's a must have.

    Hades is a contender for one of the best roguelikes in recent years. The extraordinary magnetism that surrounds him, the desire that instills in the player to try relentlessly, maybe even just to read the umpteenth sarcastic comment of the deity on duty, are very valuable features. Supergiant Games' tricks in outlining every little detail of his creature are children of a true and palpable passion. Rare merchandise these days, which no player should miss.

    Serious Sam 4 keeps its promises and turns out to be a more than average old-fashioned shooter, but don’t expect a great deal of innovation, variety or excellent graphics.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Similar to Super Smash Bros. but much easier and with a very simplistic fighting system.
    • 72 Metascore

    The return of Battletoads is a game in many ways surprising and made with extreme care. But the desire to do too much makes him lose his lucidity and ends up watering down an adventure that is too short in itself.

    A good trading simulation... and little else, really. Port Royale 4's weak combat system and repetitive gameplay make for a somewhat boring, if functional and honest, strategy game.

    Mafia: Definitive Edition is a clever, stylish and faithful remake of a cult game, which 18 years later, is still powerful lesson of how to tell a story in an open world. Hangar 13 did a great job rebuilding the city and the atmosphere with a modern touch, the story is still great and compelling, while the gameplay sometimes feels a little bit too old.

    A beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Spelunky 2 is all a sequel should be: polished, refined, bigger. A game of learning, a game of death, a game of emergent beautiful gameplay. Every second in this game is pure art: it will frustrate you, but in a positive way in which you will shout at the TV and then smile and retry. Just to die again, until you learn enough.

    A remastered version that improves some graphics aspects of the original and preserves its gameplay, but is plagued by poor optimization and suffers bad framerates even on the most powerful hardware.

    A good tennis simulation that, despite a few flaws and frustrating controls, has managed to achieve a much better result than the original game.

    It is always said that games must be judged for what they are and not for what we would like them to be: Star Renegade is a strange mix of strategy and jrpg, all under the umbrella of the roguelite-genre that ends up delimiting, and partly limiting, all the best aspects of the game. I could not stop thinking, at each run, that a normal campaign, even a short one, would have benefited the pace of the game and could make all the mechanics make it shine at their best.

    A competent 3D platformer with some rough edges and an overall higher-than-usual level of difficulty.

    A small story that serves well to introduce new users to the world of virtual reality, but the experience of Vader Immortal is unfortunately very limited and gives very little reason for a new game, after having reached the end credits.

    Nintrendo packed some truly unforgettable classics into a single pack. And forgot to celebrate them the way they deserved to be.

    Both a very nice tribute to Virtua Racing and a good arcade racing game per-se, Hotshot Racing is a nice single-player experience and a surprising multiplayer package.

    An excellent textual adventure, with a deep and articulated story. The strategic element could be improved, but it remains a fun outline at the heart of the title which is clearly the narrative.

    NBA 2K21 is a solid update of NBA 2K20... but with a strange and unpredictable twist. The new shooting meter is made for online competition and, in the end, follows the metagame rather the basketball flow. Maybe it's good for the pro gamers, but it feels unbalanced and frustrating for the basketball lovers.

    Stonethorn aims to link Greymoor to the next DLC, focusing more on its lore and giving space to a more direct action.
