    Isonzo is a historically accurate WW1 shooter, with slow and long battles to conquer a few meters of the battlefield. Definitely an improvement over the previous games of the series, but it still needs some refinements and fixes, especially in balance and variety, to really be an unmissable game.

    Serial Cleaners is a stealth game with a unique concept and an apt visual style, but with not too original gameplay by the standards of the genre. Nevertheless, the excellent presentation makes it a worthy title for all fans of the genre.

    Disney Dreamlight Valley comes with a solid and content-rich base. The adventure is very enjoyable to play, and the never-complex mechanics may bring the game closer to a younger audience. With the addition of new content and the correction of some flaws, it could become a real time-absorber for Disney and Pixar fans. [Early Access Score = 80]

    Grounded is a deep and compelling survival game that immerses us in a fascinating world waiting to be explored, full of challenges and graced by an excellent co-op mode. It's a game that doesn't hold the player by hand, and for this reason it can often leave you stumped requiring a lot of tenacity and patience, but it can also offer great rewards. Recommended for survival game fans and newbies alike, especially those eager to enjoy it with friends.

    Deathloop is yet another confirmation of Arkane Lyon's unbridled creative talent. It captures us from the very first moments thanks to an intriguing premise and keeps us glued to the pad until the end credits with a constantly evolving gameplay, enhanced by a unique styling and a basically perfect level design. Enemy AI and the shooting system could have been better, but regardless of these limitations it's a game absolutely worth trying.

    SBK 22 brings on the one hand the deep driveability characterizing Milestone's motorcycle simulations, but on the other hand it comes across almost as a clone of MotoGP 21, stingy in content and with various issues in urgent need of correction. Recommended only if you have not previously played the last MotoGP games.

    Soulstice combines a fascinating setting, two well-characterized protagonists, an engaging storyline and a gameplay that, albeit with a few smears, is capable of providing many hours of fun. It's not a perfect game, with the troublesome camera handling as its major flaw, but it's still a game that every lover of third-person action games should consider.

    NBA 2K23 has once again hit the jackpot. The very rich offering in terms of modes, a more refined gameplay, an increasingly realistic AI and a top-notch graphical appearance make it an unmissable title, despite some minor imperfections.

    If taken as a simple FPS, Metal: Hellsinger would be an average one, due to non-stellar graphics, short levels and repetitive boss fights. But add its heavy metal rhythm game gameplay to the mix, and you'll find yourselves captivated by the challenge of flawlessly executing every level, aiming to obtain the highest multiplier possible by hitting enemies following the great head-banging music tracks.

    Little Orpheus is a truly enjoyable and well-packaged adventure, with a great storyline, a sparkling script and a setting capable of capturing the player's attention from start to finish. The extremely linear gameplay doesn't mesh too well with console game standards, but it is undoubtedly a title to behold.

    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is more than just a remaster, with many new contents and meaningful gameplay improvements with more technical fights and the 60 fps frame rate. Too bad we can't say the same about its online multiplayer gameplay, which can feel almost unplayable due to the delay-based netcode. All in all, this would be an advised buy only if you're planning alone or in local multiplayer.

    Saints Row is not the reboot the series needed, significantly limiting the levels of insanity and comedy that are the hallmark of the series, while maintaining a gameplay that is now dated and in need of a serious makeover. This made it a decent but soulless title, definitely forgettable in today's landscape. If you're looking for a not-too-demanding open world it can still wring a few laughs out of you, but at the moment Saints Row smacks too much of a wasted opportunity. The series has great potential, but it needs a real leap forward if it is to have a future.

    LEGO Brawls may have more content than substance, but it succeeds in the intent of creating an accessible and fun competitive party game, and the incredible amount of characters, weapons, and customizations to be unlocked make it a title worth playing for months to come, as long as you are not looking for deeper, more technical gameplay.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection is a true love letter to Konami's own TMNT titles, and one of the best collections of this kind seen to date, with a huge amount of content and extra features such as online play and a very complete Ninja Turtles encyclopedia. A must buy for every lover of the classic TMNT games.

    With the introduction of FieldSENSE, Madden NFL 23 represents a turning point for the series, on next-generation consoles. A few technical smears still remain, and we hope they will be promptly fixed, but the homage to the great John Madden and the innovations in gameplay make it definitely recommended to all fans of this sport.

    Thymesia sports a compelling story coupled by an intriguing souls-like combat system, but it's constrained by excessively linear levels and complete lack of any dubbing. Regardless, if you're looking for a challenging action game, you should definitely give it a chance.

    Way of the Hunter is a good hunting simulator that presents the player with excellent gameplay and full freedom for those who do not want to follow the events of the story. It does not convince, however, on the technical front, with dated graphics, pop-up issues and frame-rate drops regardless it's a current-gen-only game.

    Bloodius Games packs a mature work, visceral in its telling us about the slow descent into the abyss of human madness, framing Luke's journey as one of the darkest and most intriguing experiences in the horror landscape in recent years. MADiSON is a macabre dance of pure anguish and wonder, which, barring some smearing or abuse of cliché, is recommended for anyone looking for a mature and never trite horror experience.

    South of the Circle is a fascinating and engaging adventure that will succeed in captivating lovers of narrative and emotionally charged experiences, as long as it's seen as "just" an interactive movie whose path cannot be altered, but in which we can alter the emotional nuances and small details. This and the excellent art compartment definitely make it recommendable for those looking for a good story to experience and relax in front of the screen.

    Bright Memory: Infinite is an interesting production primarily thanks to its combat system, which successfully mixes firearms, melee attacks and the use of powers, aided by an undoubtedly powerful visuals, albeit in a linear and static world. The rambling and quickly forgettable story and the extreme brevity of the experience, though, don't make it easily recommendable to everyone.

    As Dusk Falls is an adult, dramatic adventure with unusual artistic choices, yet functional to an ever engaging narrative. Almost similar to an interactive TV series, it will keep you glued to the screen until the end, eager to discover the fate of the many realistically and often starkly delineated characters, but also to explore the many ramifications of the story. The excellent acting, moreover, succeeds in making the most of such a production. Too bad for a few technical issues lightly impacting the enjoyment of the game, but it is definitely a highly recommended experience for lovers of narrative adventures and TV crime dramas.

    Matchpoint - Tennis Championships is a simulation that goes through ups and downs. The graphics feel a bit dated and the ball physics don't feel fully convincing, but once you master the control system you'll get some decent satisfaction out of it. Too bad, also, for the lack of content both in terms of modes and prominent tennis players.

    F1 22 doesn't revolutionize the series, but it proves once again to be a worthy driving sim, capable of entertaining both the F1 enthusiasts and the more casual players. It manages to faithfully recreate the F1 world both in and out the circuits, with a wide offering of modes and options.

    Redout 2 sports a great variety with lots of tracks in gorgeous environments, vehicles and different play modes, while introducing a more challenging gameplay removing the pick-up boosts of the first game and betting everything on the boost system; it feels even overly challenging due to some balance and design choices. Adding the too basic multiplayer component to the picture , this feels like a game needing some meaty post-launch adjustments and additions.

    MX vs ATV Legends proves to be a worthy evolution of its predecessors, with an improved Career mode and the addition of a significantly large and enjoyable open world. Add to these the high degree of customization, the immediacy of the riding model, the new Trails mode and the excellent implementation of dynamic weather conditions. Too bad just for some technical flaws and the high cost of DLC.

    The Quarry is undoubtedly the best work yet by Supermassive Games, both in terms of gameplay and of plot ramifications and technical department. An enthralling experience that knows how to keep the fans of the genre happy, even if it suffers from a not so bold plot (especially on the horror side) and the temporary absence of an online multiplayer component. Yet, it's a title that every fan should consider for their collection.

    Evil Dead: The Game shows remarkable potential and incredible fidelity to Sam Raimi's work, with engaging PvP and PvE dynamics especially when played with friends. There is no lack of flaws such as overly repetitive content, some technical problems and an underdeveloped single player mode, but Saber Interactive's title remains an enjoyable act of love for Sam Raimi's work that every fan should try.

    Loot River combines attractive looks and sounds to roguelike mechanics with Tetris contaminations, giving life to a definitely original gameplay loop. It suffers from some repetitiveness and a not too deep combat system, but it remains capable of fascinating the player thanks to its unique mechanics.

    Slipstream reproduces at its best many of the visual and gameplay elements that made games like Out Run unforgettable, offering also a remarkable amount of game modes. There are still some perplexities about the inconstant difficulty, but given the excellent price it is undoubtedly a title recommended to all lovers of retro driving games.
