    2K keeps in improving its NBA game, adding more depth and strategy to its gameplay and greatly boosting its career mode. Invasive microtransactions and the lack of online play for the WNBA teams just keep it from reaching higher grounds.

    eFootball PES 2020 is definitely the best episode in the series since several years, bringing many improvements making it more modern but without losing its tactical gameplay. It still needs to improve in licences and AI, but it's surely a suggested buy for soccer lovers.

    Blair Witch has got some good premises, but stumbles with a banalized plot and an overall boring and not so scary experience. Bloober Team's hand is still noticeable, but the game could maybe have benefited from a longer development time.

    The Forbidden Arts presents some nice ideas and a surprising variety in environments, but it gets all ruined by very bad performances and input detection problems and design choices that make it very frustrating to play.

    With its greatly improved Campaign, many multiplayer modes and customization options, Gears 5 is the most varied, complete and deep experience ever for the franchise. The Coalition managed to improve the game adding many new ingredients, yet keeping it faithful to its origins, and with an astounding technical implementation. A game every Xbox owner should definitely play.

    Supermassive Games delivers a compelling and intriguing horror-thriller adventure, with a great atmosphere and plenty of story branches based on player choices. We would have loved more tools to enable branches exploration, like a choices map or the ability to skip already seen cut-scenes, but it's definitely a great start for this new anthology games series.

    Wreckfest brings back its FlatOut roots with an heavy and destructive racer, but leaving behind some good features like the destruction-fueled Nitro system. Despite this, it's a racer every FlaToud, Burnout or arcade racer lover should consider buying.

    Control carries on Remedy's legacy of great story-driven adventures, adding greater freedom to the player and highly dynamic and spectacular fights coupled with a great artistic design. Definitely a game to have for lovers of supernatural plots and third person shooter-adventures.

    The Church in the Darkness presents us an intriguing setting and gameplay idea, but it fails in fulfilling its ambitions due to imprecise controls, too basic stealth mechanics, bugs and an overall lack of care for details.

    Age of Wonders: Planetfall is simply a must-have for any strategy games lover out there. Incredibly deep, varied and addictive, it masterfully mixes management and diplomacy traits with turn-based tactics. Definitely one of the best games of this kind for consoles.

    Madden NFL 20 represents a small improvement on the previous game, but additions like the new Face of the Franchise mode and Superstar X-Factor, together with meaningful improvements in many areas, make it definitely worthy of attention by Football and sports games fans.

    The Blackout Club introduces a fascinating and often addictive co-op stealth gameplay, even if wit a bit too much repetitiveness in its system of procedural mission objectives. Definitely a game to consider if you're willing to pass some good non-shooting time with friends online.

    Wolfenstein: Youngblood inherits the main series' involving and challenging shooting gameplay, with some welcome news like co-op support and a more open-ended levels design. It partly disappoints due to and easily forgettable cast of characters, a bit of repetitiveness and lack of local co-op, but at its price it's definitely a good buy for FPS action lovers.

    FIA European Truck Racing Championship surprised us with good gameplay, great tracks and a good and balanced gameplay; it feels like we're really driving these beast cars, with all their mass. It disappointment in driving wheel management, sound design and overall graphics, but it's definitely a game to try for lovers of racing games.

    Initial II: New Stage sports an entertaining and compelling combat system, but unluckily it gets dragged down by too many poorly developed elements like the repetitive and overly linear structure, a bad technical production, lack of polish and a poor english localization.

    SolSeraph mixes several genres like side-scrolling action, strategy and tower defense, but does it in an unconvincing way with every single aspect being weaker than other games in the same genres. A poor technical production with uncomfortable strategic controls and a noticeable input lag in the platforming section aren't helping, too.

    Bring to Light fails in providing any kind of thrilling experience, ending up instead in being very boring and repetitive. Not the best outcome for a horror game.

    Etherborn offers us some very clever platform-puzzle mechanics with a good artistic design. It sometimes feels a bit more difficult and frustrating than it should be due to how the camera works, but it's definitely a game to consider for lovers of the genre.

    The Sinking City offers a captivating Lovecraftian detective adventure, with some good mechanics but hindered by a too repetitive gameplay and a lacklustre technical production.

    Samurai Shodown brings back one of the most challenging fighters ever, making it a bit more accessible but not easier. Lovers of tactical fighting games will love it, but it would have benefited from more contents.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a successful remake of the first CTR, adding contents from its sequels but keeping the highly satisfying gameplay of the first game, coupled with a great graphical boost. It lacks some of the features modern kart racers introduced and 30 fps feels a bit low on modern consoles, but it's still a must buy for lovers of this genre and nostalgics of the late 90s game.

    F1 2019 improves pretty much everything compared to the previous game, with a great Career mode where the new Formula 2 addition provides more variety and new challenges, an improved graphics engine and lots of modes and contents. The game to have for F1 lovers.

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night feels like a real, unlicensed 2D Castlevania sequel, with tactic combat, great variety and and impressive depth. It's not perfect, mainly due to a pretty much anonymous look and the lack of real improvements on the classic metroidvania formula, but it's definitely a must buy for any Castlevania lover.

    Eko Software's new game fails in successfully leveraging the huge Warhammer lore and it also feels underwhelming as a pure Diablo-like game, with an unsatisfying looting system and several technical problems. Where it does good is in its immediate gameplay and local co-op, but it definitely isn't enough for a Warhammer-branded game.

    Milestone manages to improve on the previous game with lots of contents, technical improvements and new modes. Too bad for the 30 fps frame-rate, a bit restrictive in a racing game; at least on Xbox One X we'd have liked the option to choose between resolution and performance.

    A very nice and satisfying top-down open word game, bringing back vibes of the first GTA games. It shines during the car chases, while the shooting system feels imprecise and the indoor thefs mini-game end up being boring very quickly, but this is definitely a game to try by lovers of open world games.

    Layers of Fear 2 feels like a step backwards from the first game, mainly due to many boring and/or frustrating sections that feel like superfluous filler to extend the game's length. And that's a real pity, as the game's concept, varied environments and graphics could have lead to a very good game, in par or even better than the original one.

    Team Sonic Racing sports the classic kart racer gameplay but with an added layer of tactics due to the new team play mechanics. It's less varied and modern than Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, but thanks to many gaming options and contents and a great technical production it can definitely be considered one of the best kart racers around.

    Asobo Studio's new game is a rare gem, with a solid stealth gameplay and a touching and exciting storytelling. Maybe something more could have been done in the enemy A.I. and replayability areas, but it doesn't prevent it from being one of the most interesting games around.

    Darkwood offers a scary and thrilling experience, mainly thanks to a very good sound design and an oppressive top-down world. Where if fails, though, is in a slow and intricate gameplay, making part of the experience not so satisfying. It's, however, still an advised buy for lovers of horror survival experiences.
