    Codemasters throws away the series' historical legacy delivering us a flat, soul-less and very casual oriented arcade racer.

    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.

    The Sojourn offers some complex and interesting first-person puzzles, but it all happens in a too repetitive world and without offering enough rewards for the player, with a very skinny plot. It's still a decent puzzle game, but it fails to be something really memorable.

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint introduces many new feature but fails to properly develop any of them, resulting in an unconvincing game with some nice ideas, made more interesting only when played in co-op with friends.

    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.

    The Surge 2 brings us an improved combat system with a satisfying crafting and upgrading mechanic. Too bad such care wasn't given to graphics, art and storytelling, keeping it from reaching higher qualitative grounds.

    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.

    • 87 Critic Score
    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.
    • 61 Metascore

    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.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    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.

    • 50 Critic Score
    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.
    • 43 Metascore

    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.
