    Tennis World Tour 2 shows huge improvements over the original game, with satisfying gameplay and game modes. Some features, like the card system, might be debatable and it could have had better graphics, but this is definitely the right (re)start for a series aiming to become the new Top Spin.

    A solid remaster of a good RPG, with great combat mechanics and interesting lore, but with several problems inherited from the original game. A game suited more to newcomers to the game, while the ones who already played it won't find many reasons to replay it.

    A great roster of iconic indie heroes gets overshadowed by too many technical and gameplay problems. A game that would have needed many more months of development and testing to be acceptable.

    A fun and captivating arcade variation to the more serious WWE 2K annual series, with entertaining gameplay and a solid fighters roster. It might lack a bit in variety, but it'll surely please wrestling lovers.

    Mafia: Definitive Edition is a two-sided coin. On one side we find stunning graphics and a great plot that still manages to captivate us after 18 years, while on the other side we find some meaningful shortcomings that could have been avoided re-designing some aspects of the original game. Despite this, it's still a suggested buy both for people who loved the original game and for the ones that never played it.

    eFootball PES 2021 Season Update reissues the same, excellent game of last year with updated players and licenses. Seen the budget price, it's recommended to soccer lovers that didn't play the previous game, while it's hard to suggest it to fans who spent tens or thousands of hours on PES 2020.

    Minoria offers a pleasant anime design and some spectacular combat animations, but it disappoints as a metroidvania game, with a too simplistic design, unsatisfying progression system and a troublesome difficult balancing.

    Ary and the Secret of Seasons introduces an interesting "season bubbles" mechanic and a well characterized game world, but fails in providing a compelling story and an interesting gameplay. Many bugs and glitches don't help, either.

    Marvel's Avengers nails plot and characterization, giving us an absolutely lovable Kamala Khan and delivering some stunning and single-player missions. Where the game disappoints is in the many co-op missions, which feel too repetitive and uninteresting, and in a bit too many bugs. The end result is a mixed bag between a great single-player third-person action-adventure and a disappointing GaaS experience.

    This current-gen version of NBA 2K21 definitely feels like a transitory episode of the game, with welcome improvements to MyTEAM, career and shooting mechanic, but without any other meaningful changes to the game's formula over last year.

    Vicarious Visions managed to do justice to the first two iconic Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games, adding new content and refreshing the gameplay mechanics. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a remastering masterwork and a game everyone should try.

    Wasteland 3 is a top-notch RPG experience, with an highly compelling turn-based combat system and a well designed multi-path plot. It's not exempt of flaws, mainly in the technical area, and the lack of an Italian localization was quite disappointing, but it's a definitely recommended game.

    WRC 9 pushes forward KT Racing's series with a deeper and satisfying managerial aspect, a great car feeling and top-notch audio. It only gets dragged down by not too satisfying graphics and lack of meaningful visual damage, aspects we hope will be improved in the future.

    A charming and entertaining survival game, with some totally lovable tiny creatures and good and well balanced mechanics that will please newcomers to the genre too.

    PGA Tour 2K21 is a solid golf simulation with good customization features and good multiplayer, but graphics are just fine and golfers aren't too differentiated.

    With Project Cars 3, Slightly Mad Studios delivers a more accessible and arcadey racing experience, increasing its playability for standard controller users and offering us one of the best racing game Career modes around. It's not perfect though, mainly due to an unbalanced upgrade system, lack of qualification sessions and mechanical damages and definitely improvable graphics.

    Skully introduces a very satisfying "rolling" gameplay mechanic in nice prehistoric environments, but it's when it tries to diverge from it, giving us an anthropomorphic form and adding puzzles and platforming sections, that it fails. The problematic camera doesn't help, either.

    An intimate and compelling story, with great characterization and environments. It brilliantly manages to represent a transgender character without falling in clich├ęs and stereotypes, normalizing him and making him part of a wider, intense drama. We would have liked more varied gameplay and interactivity though, as the experience is mainly limited to basic exploration, object interaction and dialogue.

    Battletoads delivers a fun and challenging 2D action experience with a good variety between fighting, platforming and other game styles, and with a great soundtrack. It unluckily ended up being a bit too short, and lack of online co-op is a real letdown.

    Peaky Blinders: Mastermind surprised us with a very satisfying and well thought-out "time rewind/record" mechanism that makes us feel like a real gang mastermind like Tommy Shelby was, perfectly orchestrating and timing all our companions actions. Some controls might have been better refined, but it's definitely a game to try, even for people who never watched the TV series.

    EA Sports UFC 4 keeps all the good features of the successful previous episode, further improving the Campaign mode and adding some welcome changes to the combat system. It still needs some refinements especially regarding the ground game and transitions management, but it undoubtedly remains the best fighting sports game around.

    Skater XL introduces an innovative and very satisfying control system, but that's all: it feels more like an early access game, still lacking any meaningful content like a story mode or challenges/missions. It's also in need of a visual overhaul, as the skate parks feel too empty and lifeless, skaters lack any expressivity and the overall graphical fidelity is quite low.

    Destroy All Humans! brings the original Pandemic Studios game to Xbox One, with a surprising graphical remake but keeping the original design and gameplay with too little improvements. The game is still pretty much enjoyable, but it brings with it some old flaws we would have liked to see reworked.

    Rocket Arena has got all the elements to offer a pleasing multiplayer hero shooter experience, with nice characters, colorful and varied maps and a good base gameplay loop. It still needs some improvements though, especially in controls and usability and with more original modes.

    Tannenberg provides a realistic historical reproduction of one of the big battles of WW1, but the gameplay is still largely perfectible and battles feel too flat, with few tactical options ad too many campers which, historical accuracy or not, isn't pleasant in a multiplayer shooter.

    NASCAR Heat 5 improves on the previous and successful episode adding new features and modes coupled with very well balanced difficulty modes. It's still got lot to improve in the presentation area and in the multiplayer modes too similar to the ones in previous game, but while waiting for the next-gen jump this remains a very good NASCAR experience.

    Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris tries to experiment with too many different mechanics without making them too compelling, and that's hampered by a lackluster technical production. It's anyway got a good basis, and SAO fans will definitely appreciate its depiction of the anime's universe and the huge levels of fan service present.

    SUPERHOT: Mind Control Delete brings a change of pace from the original game, with more varied and unpredictably randomized challenges at the cost of the hand-crafted shooter-puzzle component of the first game. Levels are more repetitive, though, and difficulty feels unevenly balanced, resulting in a less satisfying experience.

    F1 2020 keeps improving on Codemasters' racer formula, adding a welcome newbies mode and a more fleshed-out online multiplayer. Enemy AI feels too frustrating though, and that's definitely something needing more work by the devs.

    Superliminal offers us an original and mind-bending first-person puzzle experience, a bit too short but always surprising and with a very satisfying ending.
