    Souldiers fulfills the elements of a Metroidvania and has its own touch that allows it to offer something different. It is rare that a game of this type does not comply and this is not the case, so if you are looking for an adventure of this type and with an attractive challenge, Souldiers is a good option.

    After 15 years of absence, Mario Strikers: Battle League returns with a competitive approach. The best part is its multiplayer mode and deep mechanics, which make every match a challenge. It's a shame that its content is sparse at launch day but it's a very fun and frantic game that can improve with future updates.

    This War of Mine: Final Cut comes to current-gen consoles with the best version yet.

    The Centennial Case : A Shijima Story is a game with very clear strengths and really pronounced weaknesses. In the end,its strengths are what stand out thanks to a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. It would be great if its interactive parts were less tedious. However, those who manage to see past its stumbling blocks will find the mystery story engaging.

    TUNIC is a delight. It is one of those indie adventures that has everything to leave a mark and become one of those titles that all adventure enthusiasts will recommend.

    Kirby and the Forgotten Land isn't a revolution for the series, but... did it need to be? All it had to do was deliver a game that was faithful to what has made Kirby a franchise that generates excitement, and it largely succeeded at that. Kirby took too long to make the leap to 3D, but the point is that he did it, and in a satisfying way.

    LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker is a step forward for the franchise and trace the base for the next LEGO games. His strengths surpass his flaws, so this is a very fun and charming adventure that offers dozens of hours of entertainment. The Star Wars fans gonna love it, while novices will find an attractive product to know the franchise.

    Despite its simplicity and details in terms of gameplay, Slipstream is a proposal that fulfills its mission, paying homage to OutRun, and has enough detail to make a trip to the past and have a good nostalgic and fun time.

    The House of The Dead: Remake bets on nostalgia and tries to renew itself while leaving its arcade essence intact. Sadly, controls are not precise and makes it frustrating in a short time. If you overcome this huge problem, its new art direction that gives the impression of being an old game and adjust to its shortcomings, The House of The Dead: Remake becomes fun to deliver you a simple and action-packed experience.

    Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is a re-release with more love and respect than I ever hoped would be given to a game that many saw as the ugly brother of one of the best JRPGs in history. This is a remaster that did go that extra mile to pamper those of us who for years have been asking for a way to play Chrono Cross on a modern platform.

    Ghostwire: Tokyo is a game that we greatly enjoyed. Unfortunately, Tango Gameworks' approach was to create a game where style is dominant and little substance is offered. In terms of setting and art design it is one of the most unique games we have seen in a long time. However, it is a bland and run-of-the-mill title gameplay-wise.

    Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin will go down in history for being memorable for better and for worse. Many of its sections are a mess, but if you can get past its flaws and learn to enjoy them you'll find a game that will entertain you immensely. Especially if you love action RPGs with rewarding combat and progression systems.

    WWE 2K22 is an entry wrestling fans cannot miss. It has everything you can expect from WWE; from an enhanced look, a better and easier to remember control scheme, to a solid variety of modes where MyGM is the crowning jewel. WWE 2K22 is a foundation for the future of the franchise, and a far cry from the disaster of 2019.

    Lienzo delivered a game that feels very different to anything currently on the market. The title has a lot of identity, both in concept and in gameplay. It's fun in combat, but also outside of the main missions when the player is allowed to just fly around. Even if there is not much to discover in the world, it is fun to explore and not many games can brag about that. Aztech Forgotten Gods] is a short game and relatively easy, but very solid and entertaining and great evidence of the potential of video game development in Latin America. I highly recommend the adventure for those who enjoy fast paced action games and have a low tolerance for frustration.

    BABYLON'S FALL is a huge disappointment. The initial charm of the combat system fades off very quickly and the level design feed that feeling of monotony of boredom. This is a shame, as the combat and the narrative concepts have so much potential.

    Chocobo GP is an entertaining game and is good karting at its core, however to unlock most of its content the user is required to play through its single player story mode. This makes the game feel very limited, especially in a genre whose main essence is to compete with other users. Still, the characters are charismatic, references to Final Fantasy and Chocobo spin offs bring a smile. The strategic mechanics of using items and the unique abilities of each racer give depth to the gameplay. The tracks are varied and fun to ride. The tunes are catchy, and the game is generally nice looking. This game is recommended for fans of Final Fantasy, for those looking for a future-evolving online experience, or for fans of Chocobo Racing on the first PlayStation, but it is worth noting that, In the end, Chocobo GP is a delightful experience that in many ways feels half-baked.

    The Next-Gen version of Assetto Corsa Competizione is a disaster. It can improve with attention and pertinent updates since the simulation and the gameplay are there, but it seems that there is no interest in doing it.

    Triangle Strategy has the seal of approval of Tomoya Asano, producer of other RPGs that have stood out for having a special touch. This tactical RPG sweetens the look for its aesthetics and draws us in little by little, in a drama full of tragic overtones. The robust story and its battle system are its strong points, although the exploration is practically nil. The narrative is dense and at times very slow, which make the battles feel like a prize for which we waited a long time.

    Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster is an inconsistent work. Graphically, it has some nice effects, but also some ugly elements, the most obvious one is the typography. It is a remake that removes important things from the original game and adopts unnecessary new features. It's not the best version of the game, but it's not the worst either.

    The King of Fighters XV is a solid and very fast fighting game that tests your skills. It shows how such a long-lived saga can evolve without losing its essence. Although it offers little content for casual players, the graphical upgrade, new mechanics, and rollback netcode makes the difference. All these changes are noticeable and put the franchise in the right direction.

    Gran Turismo 7 is a great racing game. It's clear that Polyphony Digital learned from the missteps of Gran Turismo Sport to deliver a game that, in conjunction with being an extremely solid experience, is the return to its roots that fans were hoping for. While it's certainly not an arcade experience, it does enough to be approachable for those who are not experts but want a deep racing game with a lot of content.

    Grid Legends fall short and leave us with a feeling that the franchise is still lost, searching for a path or identity. It has little to offer in the face of similar games that achieve greatness. Ultimately, it's a race with nothing glorious, nor legendary.

    Martha is Dead has an interesting idea, but not enough to be considered a great game in spite of its flaws. If you're a fan of thrillers or the setting of Martha is Dead appeals to you, it is worth a check. It's not a life-changing horror game, but it's immersive enough to keep you hooked for a while.

    Dragged down by a dated and boring campaign, Lost Ark is saved by an engaging and visually attractive combat system. Although it has payed elements, it’s a good choice for an MMO with tons of content.

    Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden combines a classic JRPG with a board game. This format works naturally, however, turns tedious by random battles and the way you traverse the board. Expect a Yoko Taro-style story that takes advantage of random elements to give it a special touch.

    Elden Ring is everything we dream of and much more. It is the natural evolution of a franchise that has captivated several generations and is now ready to capture many more. Elden Ring will be the most talked about game of the next decade. It's proof that FromSoftware is a master of its craft and a testament that it dominates the genre it has created. Those who try to do something similar will remain mere imitators: they will never reach the level of sophistication achieved in Elden Ring.

    Horizon Forbidden West is, in many ways, a sensational journey. You can definitely tell that Guerrilla Games listened to a lot of the criticisms Zero Dawn received and devoted themselves to fixing them. The result is a game that reinforced the strengths of its first installment and complemented them with a world that feels bursting with life, genuinely exciting combat, and small improvements that deliver an overall experience with fewer bumps in the road. Sadly, several design decisions ended up being a string that limited its potential. Forbidden West could have been a generational impact, but it will pass as just another great open-world adventure.

    Life is Strange: Remastered Collection maintains the original aesthetics of the original games while making some welcome, if somewhat conservative, improvements. Visually and content-wise, this is the best version of both games, although it should be mentioned that the visual improvements are not homogeneous. That said, it is a great recommendation for those who want to revisit these games, those who want to get the most complete edition of them, but above all, those who missed them the first time around.

    Pokémon Legends: Arceus proves that the franchise can evolve and experiment for the better. It's a solid game that breaks the mold, and despite its visual simplicity, it doesn't detract from Game Freak's attempt to revamp a classic. Pokémon Legends: Arceus could have been better, but it is an important step towards the future of the franchise.

    Sifu is a great beat em‘ up game that discourages mashing buttons. The combat system stands out as a mix between the Batman: Arkham series and Sekiro, with a heavy emphasis on precision. It is a demanding game that penalizes mistakes and rewards skill.
