    Mafia II stood out during the last generation of consoles for all the right reasons. This is why it is not surprising that in 2020 it is as entertaining as it was before. Sadly, Mafia II: Definitive Edition turns out to be a remaster that is far from reaching the heights of the original. It is not a catastrophic product at any means, but Mafia fans deserve more.

    2020 is the perfect opportunity to relive a reconstructed classic in great detail. A legend adapted to the needs of veterans and new players that everyone should play. This is Xenoblade Chronicles as it should have been from the beginning.

    Maneater is a game of many of many shortcomings; terrible loading screens, frightening cinematics cuts and a myriad of technical difficulties. However, the game is also extremely fun if you can overlook some of its problems.

    Moons of Madness is a game whose parts do not end up integrating. The proposal is not bad and it has interesting moments that will provoke the worst of fears, however, its failures and limitations end up acting against it.

    Even with its limitations and with an approach that seeks to exploit fan service, MY HERO ONE'S JUSTICE 2 finds its way as a video game, with a good dose of fun, and that is saying a lot among so many bad games that have manipulated the passion of anime fans.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake is the piece that knew to blend the past with the present. What Square Enix has done is cause for celebration, as it has been able to fabricate everything we imagined and the vision we had of the original more than two decades ago. Easily, Final Fantasy VII Remake can give modern makers a lecture on how a remake should be done. The adventure that started in Midgar relives again and has surprised us again.

    Neon City Riders achieves outstanding art direction and animations that match challenging gameplay and well-designed boss battles. This indie takes inspiration from metroidvania installations, but sometimes fails to maintain the interest in exploration. However, combined with good platform puzzles and gameplay, it stands as an attractive experience.

    If you are a fan of One Piece this is the game for you. Pirate Warriors 4 is an obvious improvement of previous iterations, sadly, with the same repetitive nature. Recommended if you are looking for action and destruction without complications, and above all, if you are a fan of One Piece.

    Resident Evil 3 is a different monster compared to last year release. While it lost some of his tetric atmosphere, a sense or urgency is gained in the form of Nemesis, a hulkin powerhose behind your heels. However, its short campaign, lack of replayability and forgettable multiplayer, will make this year Resident Evil a hard sell.

    Brutal from start to finish, Nioh 2 turns its outstanding combat system into a deadly dance that knows how to be cruel with defeat, but honorable with victory. It may not be far from the first game, but it was enough to refine the elements that founded the franchise to deliver one of the best titles of the closing of this generation.

    Thanks to new customization possibilities, a lot of classic charm and many QOL improvements, Animal Crossing: New Horizons stands as the best of the franchise so far. This game builds a community sense in different levels, something that we need at present time.

    A good remake of a decent game. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX will be loved by those who played the original. Sadly it lacks the depth or challenge needed to be interesting to a wider gaming audience.

    Doom Eternal is one of the best FPS that exists today. We can even say that it far exceeds the original. However, not everything shines with the same intensity; the story is confusing and unnecessary, the platform sections are tedious, the new visual identity is generic. In general, you can notice a change of direction towards a game as a service for the wrong reasons. Doom Eternal finds himself caught in the eternal conflict of finding his own identity.

    Ori and the Will of the Wisps keeps the core values of the previous game and elevates them to new heights to consolidate Moon Studios as a new creator force.

    Unfortunately, we are facing a completely forgettable game. With a story mode that has many pacing problems, the experience becomes annoying really fast. It may be enjoyed by anime fans.

    As an immersive experience, Draugen is a pleasant surprise for those who seek to contemplate, explore and enter the reconstruction of a story of drama and tragedy. Although its limits are evident, Red Thread Games knew how to make the most of its resources, delivering a work that promises to be the beginning of great projects for the future. Graavik is a beautiful place, the soundtrack is impeccable and the story is very interesting, it is definitely an experience you have to live.

    Hunt: Showdown will keep you on the edge of your seat while you are taking down vile monsters and nasty players. Hunt is a well-themed competitive game that conveys various emotions while you play but offers little content. It is very likely that you will become addicted to bounty hunting, but it gets boring after a while.

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is a classic JRPG that manages to convey the essence of Japanese pop culture with a touch of Fire Emblem and everything Atlus has perfected in its games. A take-out edition that justifies the purchase and some extras that may be due if you played the Wii U version.

    Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is the ultimate telling of Son Goku legend. It is an experience designed to please generations of fans, that will certainly enjoy all the content available. In general, the battles against the final bosses are awesome, but somehow the experience feels empty, tedious and unnecessarily long.

    Despite remaining true to the essence of the franchise, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts has no elements to highlight in the FPS scene and may represent an option that attracts the attention of the public that remains true to this CI Games proposal, but nothing more.

    Pokémon Sword & Shield are an experience full of bittersweet contrasts. They do several things right and Pokémon fans will have a great time exploring Galar. With that said they also have half-baked elements that feel off. I have to admit that they leave me excited for the future of the series; hopefully, Game Freak will commit to ideas like the Wild Area and Dynamax forms.

    Star Wars has found redemption in Respawn Entertainment. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is without doubt, one of the best Star Wars titles in recent memory, and already has a place in the history of Star War’s video games. Respawn Entertainment succeeded and was the chosen one who brought the balance to the Force.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's combination of modes is an easy recommendation for long time enthusiasts. However, the campaign feels really short and not up to expectations, and multiplayer modes feel hastily put together and thrown around without real consideration of what works and what does not.
