    Code Vein gets many of the souls-like genre tropes mixing them with a more accessible and forgiving gameplay, a charming manga-like artistic design and great depth in character customization, resulting in a very enjoyable action-RPG despite some technical and difficulty balancement flaws.

    Tropico 6 provides us a satisfying political and city building simulation experience, with funny humor and several good modes. It might have benefited of higher innovation compared to the previous episode, though.

    Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a pleasing and visually excellent puzzle adventure, with plenty of variety and a satisfying longevity. The developers could have pushed harder on the puzzles difficulty, but it still feels compelling and rewarding.

    With FIFA 20 EA plays it safe, fine-tuning what good was already done and introducing some news like the entertaining VOLTA Football mode. Some early bugs keep it from being fully satisfying, but we're confident they'll be quickly fixed.

    NHL 20 keeps on improving its formula both in terms of modes variety and gameplay, with an high authenticity and fluidity which makes us almost feel like we're there on the ice swapping blows with our opponents.

    Borderlands 3 brings back the overwhelming funniness and simple but addictive gameplay the series is known for, even if Gearbox played it safe taking little risks in innovating the game, thus making it feel a little bit older.

    A good and satisfying racing game, with an unusual depth level for a non-AAA racing game. Despite some minor flaws, it shines thanks to its rich customization, many game modes and a great cars and tires physics simulation.

    A satisfying stealth-focused isometric turn-based game, with a welcome new flavor given by employing Police tactics. It lacks some finesses from better known franchises and its enemy AI could have been better, but fans of XCOM and the likes should give it a look.

    GreedFall is a valid, old school RPG with great mood and environments. With a satisfying story and setting, it just lacks in the technical department and for a not too impressive and a bit chaotic combat system. Lovers of old, BioWare-style RPGs should definitely give it a chance, though.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    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.

    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.

    RAGE 2 offers a tight open-world FPS experience, with a satisfying gunplay and a totally loading-free experience. Too bad for the forgettable story and lack of HDR and 4K support, two factors detracting from its overall value.

    Puyo Puyo Champions is a great puzzle game for people looking for a competitive experience against other players, both local and online, with lots of options and customizations. It might be a bit underwhelming for people looking for a single player experience, but at this price it's still a recommended buy for them too.

    Definitely the best Mortal Kombat so far, and probably the best fighting game around too. Everything in Mortal Kombat 11 is meticulously curated, from the perfect combat system to the awesome graphics and the rich online support. A great buy for any fan.
