    Rogue Legacy 2 doesn't revolutionize the saga but expands and improves every part of it, adding great variety and many options for the players. This will keep it a constant presence in your hard drives for many months.

    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.

    Dawn of the Monsters successfully manages to reproduce the feeling of kaijus and big robot fights, but it doesn't add anything new to the genre's tropes, falling in a bit uninspired and repetitive gameplay.

    Apart from being an excellent first-person adventure, Road 96 is an overwhelming experience and an emotional dive into the '90s, with their music and style. As you stand on the side of the road, fantasizing about a better future, you'll wish that journey never ends.

    The new elements introduced in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga allow it to renew itself by offering a gameplay capable of satisfying every player, even if it has to deal with the inexplicable absence of online co-op and with some less effective elements. However, these flaws quickly fade into the background, leaving room for the best LEGO video game so far.

    Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin feels like a wasted opportunity, with an intriguing base idea but a lackluster plot, bad characterization and a disappointing technical production. It's partly saved by a satisfying - although not original - gameplay and a surprising ending.

    Tiny Tina's Wonderlands doesn't disfigure among other members of the prestigious Borderlands saga, even if it doesn't bring significant novelties besides the reinterpretation in a fantasy key, which turns out to be a winning idea anyway. Hilarious and irreverent dialogues, a satisfying gunplay and an end-game that hardly gets boring are the elements that will keep you glued to the game.

    Shredders is an ambitious indie game, characterized by some too many edges but with the great quality of offering a snowboarding game that conveys passion for this discipline. The extremely complex control system can lead to some frustration, but those who have the patience to overcome a few too many failures will be rewarded with satisfaction and a lot of fun.

    Tunic doesn't disappoint. Maybe some combat system choices can be a bit perplexing, but they aren't able to ruin one of the most memorable, deep and mysterious indie experiences of the last years. Behind a cute look is in fact hidden a deep, varied and fascinating game, capable of revealing new aspects even many hours after the ending.

    Elden Ring manages to draw the player into a fascinating world for many hours, with refined gameplay that fits perfectly with the freedom granted to the player. A sumptuous but imperfect work, which fails to completely overcome some of the historical flaws of Hidetaka Miyazaki's productions. Flaws that, however, can't diminish the scope of a masterpiece destined to leave an indelible mark on the videogame world and to set new standards for the souls-like and open-world genres.

    WWE 2K22 brings new life and dignity to a beloved franchise, letting us forget the previous episode's misstep. The new graphics engine, the almost fully recreated gameplay, the richness of the offer and the general atmosphere that is felt in the game, overshadow the small imperfections still needing work to be done. Visual Concepts deserves our applause as a studio finally worthy of bringing forth the future of WWE's franchise.

    KungFu Kickball would have all the makings of a great party game, but it lacks in depth and variety. Moreover, the overly simplistic single player component and the almost non-existent online community relegate it to the role of a game that can only be played among friends.

    Cyberpunk 2077's ultimate console version reaffirms the splendid storytelling, exceptional city-building and varied gameplay of the original game, while also being more polished, enriched and finally featuring performance and visuals worthy of new consoles. There is no shortage of smears and residual issues, but it still stands as an excellent first-person RPG, set in a fascinating retro-sci-fi world full of things to do and compelling stories to live. Definitely a must-have.

    ELEX II is as vast, free and engaging as it is crude and flawed. Over-the-top elements clash with a lame technical side and a flawed enemy AI, in a continuous roller coaster of conflicting emotions. It may involve you deeply as well as you may come to hate it for its many imperfections and the punishing difficulty, but however it goes you won't fail to realize this is a game made with heart.

    GRID Legends lives of ups and downs: it makes decisive steps forward compared to the previous episode, with a good technical realization and a frantic and fun driving model, but it fails to differentiate itself enough when switching cars, flattening the gaming experience. It's suitable mainly for those who are looking for entertainment without too many frills, but less recommended for those seeking something deeper and more refined.

    Martha is Dead is unique. A rare pearl in the gaming landscape, dealing with tough issues and immerses us in a raw and real World War II Tuscany, painting a horror story that is truer than ever. It is not for everyone, and if you are overly emotional it is definitely not for you, but if you love authorial and story-driven games, it's absolutely recommended.

    Dying Light 2 Stay Human is a good sequel, even if a bit rough in some places, offering us an open world as ambitious as imperfect, with excellent gameplay and lots of content. Nevertheless, it could have benefited from more technical cleanliness and attention to some key aspects such as A.I. and writing. Still, it has all the cards in order to satisfy those who loved the first chapter or those looking for a different action title from the usual.

    CrossfireX is, more than any other game, a two-sided coin. On one side we get a lacklustre and disappointing multiplayer component, while on the other we have two compelling, spectacular and creative - even if short - CoD-style campaigns, where Remedy's footprint is clearly visible. As a complete package, it's barely sufficient, but since they can be bought separately at a convenient price, we recommend trying the campaigns if you're into this kind of single-player FPS experience.

    Edge of Eternity is a true love letter to the JRPGs of the late nineties, an ambitious title that seeks to modernize a classic formula without distorting it. The end result is an imperfect role-playing game, but still capable of entertaining and exciting the player thanks to an engaging combat system and a first-class script, along with a top-quality soundtrack. Surely capable of satisfying the lovers of the genre.

    OlliOlli World reaches the series' full maturity with a colorful and imaginative world, captivating characters and lots of content and challenges, offering a package never so fascinating and complete. Recommended to all the lovers of skateboarding and platforming.

    Sleepin' Guy Deluxe Edition is an original first-person puzzle game, with a good basic idea and intriguing mechanics. There are a lot of memorable levels, although some puzzles can be a bit frustrating due to a not excellent control system. Considering its low price too, it is definitely a recommended purchase for anyone looking for a different first-person adventure.

    Rainbow Six Extraction is an excellent example of how to evolve and diversify a saga without denaturalizing it. Siege's well-tested structure is effectively flanked by new mechanics designed for cooperative play, allowing the game to differentiate itself enough from the dense competition. All this is made more interesting by a good progression system and extra modes, ensuring a more than satisfactory longevity to the title. Definitely worth a try for anyone looking for a new co-op FPS experience.

    Ruined King: A League of Legends Story immerses us in the rich lore of League of Legends without the need to play the iconic MOBA on PC. Well-crafted characters and a very attractive audiovisual style can partially cover the shortcomings of a not particularly original JRPG-like gameplay and a story that doesn't dare to deviate too much from the existing lore. Nevertheless, this remains a good dive in Riot Games' saga, but also a good starting point, along with Wild Rift and the TV series Arcane, to introduce newcomers to this rich universe.

    White Shadows is a cinematic platformer with a truly captivating style, which is not afraid to tackle important issues such as discrimination, slavery or suicide. The surreal and macabre world that the young protagonist crow has to face is really nice and distressing, but unfortunately the gameplay and the technical side are not always in step with the beautiful environments. Nevertheless, It's recommended to all fans of the genre, especially for the topics covered.

    Halo Infinite is 100% classic Halo, even with innovations like the grappling hook and the open-world structure that, in fact, leverage the very elements that made the series a great video game classic. 343 Industries has nailed game structure, gameplay, gunplay, AI, graphics and music, but stumbled with inexcusable flaws - especially after such a long wait - in variety and replayability. The game will still keep you glued to the controller though, so there's little doubt: Master Chief is back and he's in great shape.

    If the first chapter of the series represented a novelty and a small gem in the managerial games universe, this sequel expands and enriches the experience but it loses the opportunity to deepen the management component. It is an evolution of the first chapter, with new content and modes, but without adding substantial new features to the game formula.

    Battlefield 2042 had all the right cards to offer an incredible experience - huge maps, more players (bots included), destructive weather events and the promising Portal mode. It is, however, unfortunately incomplete due to technical glitches, missing features and senseless design choices. The potential to become one of the best episodes of the saga is there, but it will take time and many corrective updates.

    This comeback of the three GTA classics feels superficial and poorly optimized, although some improvements are clearly visible. It's not the remaster we were hoping for, but these are still immortal classics that can still entertain and sometimes even amaze. And sometimes that's all we need.

    Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water is an old-fashioned horror title capable of delivering many thrills thanks to a well-written storyline, anxiety-inducing atmosphere and unique gameplay, provided, however, you can turn a blind eye to the problems related to controls, the little care taken in graphics improvements and the lack of localization for several western languages.
