    Chicory achieves exactly what it intends: to absorb you into its universe and dazzle you with its structure. A brush as a magic wand capable of painting, solving puzzles and answering many of the questions it asks you. Excellently localized and with an unforgettable soundtrack, its only problem is the control with the controller, which is not as comfortable as it should; it is more accurate with a mouse on PC. Finji has once again succeeded in turning simplicity into an advantage. Its puzzles are intelligent, there is always a surprise waiting for you in its beautiful story. One of the indie surprises of 2021.

    The main game receives an important graphic and technical update to adapt it to the new generation, but it is in the INTERmission expansion that we find the main attraction of Intergrade. A DLC with a new story line, surprising changes in gameplay and the addition of the Fort Condor minigame. A must for fans of the title.

    Like a blast from the past, Ryu Hayabusha and the Ninja Gaiden trilogy appears like a storm in this Souls era. Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection looks very good, but not so great as it could've been. And the choice / not choice of remaster the Sygma versions is not what we wanted -It'd be great to have the option between playing the originals from Xbox and the Sygma versions. But nonetheless, we have pure ninja slice-and-dice action, so intense and hard that it puts your skills to the test. Oldie but true goodie indeed!

    Poison Control offers a mix of different gameplay mechanics with an intriguing story that results in a simple but addictive title.

    The virtues of the title, to which they add a great final stretch or certain extra challenges that complement the game as a whole (here some ideas could have been exploited further), end up being much greater than these setbacks.

    Crown of the Magister is presented as a new video game in the CRPG style and to achieve a niche in the genre, effectively fulfilling the expectations that they marked with the first impressions.

    With the PC version Bend Studios gives it their all to prove all that Days Gone could and should have been. An extremely solid port that both old and soon-to-be fans should try.

    Miitopia is back on Nintendo Switch. New Mii customisation options, a steed and an adventure that relies on giving prominence to the characters... but not so much to the story. The work adjusts itself to the player's tastes, with plenty of options to configure trades, skills, behaviours, synergies... Despite its repetitiveness, it's a refined blend of the classic turn-based JRPG experience with Tomodachi Life, but this time adding quality of life details that result in an improved version over the Nintendo 3DS work. It's not a lazy port. The irreverence of its writing, the unexpected situations each character can come up with, and its ease of minigames make it a perfectly enjoyable title for all audiences; especially newcomers to the genre.

    Don´t Forget Me is a futuristic adventure that unfortunately offers very little content and does not delve into its story or its mechanics. You will have to type words to dive into memories, and investigate a couple of scenarios, but it leaves us wanting to know much more about the world that it barely outlines.

    Intimate, personal and transmits a large pack of emotions throughout its original soundtrack. Nevertheless, the narrative is irregular and its ambiguity may not be everyone's cup of tea.

    Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is an adventure with very atypical characters, enjoyable landscapes and humorous dialogues, although its playability is wrong with regard to changing objects or clumsy camera movement.

    The creators of Primordia offer us an exceptional point and click adventure game, with a spectacular staging and personal and deep story, which is a couple of steps behind the previous work of the studio due to how short it is as it is a smaller project.

    Biomutant fails to present an ambitious open world. After a couple of hours it becomes a monotonous game.

    If you liked the first one, you will love Subnautica: Below Zero. It improves everything previously played and adds necessary novelties to this sequel. Everyone who loves underwater world and survival genre will be delighted with this video game.

    Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir and The Girl Who Stands Behind are two very important works for the visual novel genre in general and for Nintendo in particular. We want more daring exercises like these, because the extravagance and sophistication of its proposal help us to interpret the current context. Know our past to understand the present and glimpse the future. Probably not the best visual novels on the market, but they are two methodological examples whose story now boasts a merit that is difficult to calculate. Something very difficult was achieved with so little: creating an atmosphere of mystery surrounded by two gripping stories, well-written characters and a suspense that is not resolved until the very end. The shadow of the detective club is very long.

    Sony San Diego develops a conservative delivery, with hardly any improvements in gameplay and content. Being intergenerational, in addition, the technical leap is invaluable, but nevertheless, it is still a very solid baseball game.

    Hero U, with its approach to RPG with more emphasis on character growing and social interactions over action, results in a unique and very enjoyable adventure capable to keep users entertained for hours and hours, despite its unpolished combat and some technical issues.

    A superb game with excellent touches, great art and a confident execution. But its attempts to reintroduce classic design ideas from the saga are a bit lacking compared to the original ones.

    Before I Forget wants to put you in the shoes of a woman with early dementia, it wants you to live their day-to-day life. And invites you to learn through contact with the objects around you what they are looking for. It succeeds. Sunita, the protagonist, had a life she now longs for. She loved, enjoyed and immortalised moments through images. These moments are the narrative channel to tell her story. The game lasts only one hour, enough to convey a valuable message.

    New Pokémon Snap meets the demands of the fans, abandoning the idea of a "short videogame" and presents a Lensis region full of content, both in terms of Pokémon and routes. Its mechanical depth is limited, advancing very little from the Nintendo 64 entry, although it makes up for this lack of gameplay ambition with an audiovisual delight where everything you see around you is alive and reactive. Bandai Namco has understood that nowadays there is little point in keeping your experiences to yourself, that your album needs to be retouched and shared. This title is meant to celebrate the Pokémon universe in its natural environment, for you to show it off and discover its many secrets.

    Blinking is Before Your Eyes’ main tool to transmit unique messages and feelings, but at the same time is used in many narrative situations that do not need them.

    It looks nice and its message deserves to be listened and understood. But it lacks content and its gameplay is way too simple to be something with lasting appeal.

    Ver. 1.22474487139 accentuates NieR's virtues and adds new ones, making it not only the definitive edition of a cult classic, but also a great game on its own.

    Cozy Grove is one of the typical yes games, but… It is very well linked to the genre it wants to represent, it has acceptable content and a fairly interesting narrative, but so many blatant references to Animal Crossing make it not entirely original.

    Spacebase Startopia knows how to create a good atmosphere. It's a good empire building, but It has dangerous efficiency problems and the battle system is useless and very chaotic.
