    An atypical 1vs1 futuristic racer with an addictive one-hour tournaments structure. Too bad it lacks more complexity and depth: it could have strived for much better results.

    A nice improvement on the previous game, with added variety thanks to the new management mode and races. It still needs to improve in presentation, though.

    Super Street: The Game brings back a long lost old school racer feeling, with a lot of variety in game modes and tuning choices. Unluckily it stumbles in an uneven difficulty balance, unpredictable physics and an odd driving model.

    Maybe it might have been a decent VR game, but on a TV screen Time Carnage is a total failure, with a boring and extremely repetitive gameplay.

    An even stronger and thought-provoking experience than the first game, with a brilliant soundtrack and improved graphics, while Dontnod reaffirms their storytelling ability. A must have for any narrative adventure lover and a great beginning for this new episodic season in the series.

    This is the Police 2 improves on the first game formula adding a welcome new tactical mode and adding more variety to our tasks, delivering again a good narrative experience. It still falls in some of the original game problems, like an excessive repetitiveness and a somewhat messy difficulty. If you liked the original game, though, this is a suggested buy.

    Assassin's Creed: Odyssey builds on everything good Origins introduced, but with a bit lower quality stories and adding some new systems that end up being not so impressive. Overall, though, it's still a very solid open world game with lots of content and some very gorgeous visuals. It won't amaze you as Origins did, but it'll still provide tens of hours of quality play.

    A nice and entertaining retro platformer, very short but with a good price point to balance it and some funny jokes.

    Despite some nice tracks and gameplay features, V-Rally 4 disappoints due to an underdeveloped and chaotic Campaign mode, some driving problems and a somewhat messy interface.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Playground Games managed to improve on an already almost perfect formula, adding even more modes and freedom for the players, with gorgeous visuals and the added variety of season changes in a shared world. Simply the best, prettiest and most content-filled arcade racer around. A must buy for everyone.

    Fall of Light is based on interesting premises, but it falls short of its ambitions due to a frustrating and boring gameplay worsened by an annoying input lag.

    Immortal: Unchained fails pretty much in every aspect, from its strongly unbalanced gameplay to its laughable animations and many technical problems, crashes included.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Transference's story's got interesting premises, but it feels underdeveloped and way too short even for a walking simulator, falling under the two hours of length. It might have been a good first (and cheap) episode for an episodic game, but at this price it's pretty difficult to recommend it.

    A huge improvement on the Game Preview version PUBG confirms itself as the best Battle Royale game around, with very satisfying gameplay dynamics especially in team. It still needs a lot of optimization and polishing, but it definitely deserves a try.

    NBA 2K19 further improves on an already perfect formula, adding more realism both visual and in gameplay, and offering us a wide choice of modes. This is the game to have not just for basketball fans, but for every sports game lover.

    Brawlout is a technically solid platfighter with some cool characters and special guests, but it lacks depth and variety to keep us entertained.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the perfect conclusion to the series' reboot trilogy, further improving and masterfully meshing all its gameplay elements - including the very satisfying stealth mechanics - and delivering jaw-dropping visuals. A must-buy game for every fan of the franchise and for action-adventure lovers in general.

    NBA Live 19 shows further improvements for the series with a more simulative gameplay, a great overall NBA feeling thanks to realistic graphics and the ESPN license, and the welcome return of the WNBA license. The One is the crown jewel mode for the series, but EA still has to work hard to improve its Franchise mode and some ball physics. All in all, a definitely suggested game for NBA lovers.

    Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker marks a bold new direction for Naruto games, trying to innovate the brand with a new kind of fighting game. Unluckily it falls short on its objective though, due to a lack of content and the omission of a proper story mode. However it's got some very interesting features and a fresh gameplay approach, so it's definitely worth a try buy Naruto and fighting games lovers.

    PES 2019 is probably the best football game around once you're on the pitch, thanks to its great gameplay, great variety and tactical options; unluckily, though, the whole package feels outdated due to the lack of important licenses and new features.

    Planet Alpha puts us in a journey through a gorgeous and artistically superb alien world; it lacks in complexity and challenge, but if you love great aesthetics in games, it's definitely a must buy.

    Airheart mixes shoot'em and roguelike mechanics with a very nice art style, but unlikely standard roguelikes it feels over-punishing when we're beaten, making us lose hours of precious progress, and it's way too easy to accidentally shoot at civilians thus being targeted by overwhelming police forces. It would benefit from some balancing.

    Phantom Doctrine manages to distinguish itself from the classic XCOM formula by offering us an engaging stealth-based action model, where we need to be much more careful about our actions and tactically plan every move. It's not perfect and sometimes it feels like enemies are way over-sensible, but it's definitely a suggested buy for every lover of spy stories and turn-based action.

    Codemasters keeps on perfecting its F1 sim, adding even more gameplay choices and making its Campaign yet more engaging and interesting. Visually, moreover, it's almost like watching the real thing on TV, especially at 4K. A must buy for every Formula One lover.

    In a dystopian future where human dramas mix to the search for a better life, State of Mind tells us the touching and surprises-filled tale of two fathers in search for the truth about their families. Great storytelling and brilliant low-poly environments are the foundation for a satisfying adventure game whose only downsides are its too inexpressive and stiff, but very well characterized, characters. Definitely suggested for lovers of adventure games and dramatic sci-fi/cyberpunk tales.

    EA hit the mark in trying to renovate its football sim: graphics, gameplay, atmosphere and game modes are all in their best shape with the only exception of the Longshot mode, a bit too repetitive. If you skipped some Madden NFL games in the past in fear of the usual "more of the same", this one will definitely prove to be worth the buy.

    No Man's Sky is a giant leap from the game's early days, and it comes on Xbox One in its best form, with lots of activities and variety. It's still got wide margins of improvement though, especially in the multiplayer and technical areas, but if there's something Hello Games proved so far, it's their strong commitment to improve the game post-launch.
    • 64 Metascore

    An interesting concept capable of making us feel the real power of a super-being, but it lacks the structure of a proper game to support it. Its repetitive gameplay and lack of contents make it feel more like a tech demo rather than a full-blown game.

    Dead Cells is a frantic and captivating side-scrolling action game, mixing elements from multiple genres and showcasing a great pixel-art design with fantastic animations and effects. Its procedurally generated levels might prove to be a bit too repetitive at times, but this is undoubtedly a game that'll keep lovers of metroidvania and action games entertained for many hours.

    Sonic Mania Plus is the best recent evolution of SEGA's franchise, with great new features, a rock-solid gameplay and a very attractive retail version. The best Sonic is undoubtedly the classic one.
