    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.

    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.

    Aside from the colorful and vivid graphics, Woodle Tree Adventures is too simple and short to be a real challenger in the platform games genre. Add to this several camera problems, and we get a slightly insufficient game.

    Fade to Silence tries to mix many different elements like survival, management and souls-like combat, but it fails in doing it in a cohesive and satisfying way, resulting in a frustratingly difficult and often boring gameplay, with several technical problems too.

    This first person adventure game is based on some interesting ideas, but they're very poorly executed with bad narrative, gameplay and many technical problems.

    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.

    Capcom finally brings to Xbox one of the best visual novels sagas of the past, with its brilliant dialogues and great characters. Unluckily, thought, it feels like a weak porting effort, especially due to the lack of foreign (Italian, in our case) localization, a very penalizing issue for a text-filled title like this one.

    Snooker 19 manages to successfully reproduce this British variation of one of the most loved sports, with a high level of fidelity both in the simulation and presentation areas. Recommended to all lovers of cue sports.

    Vaporum feels like a game from a time capsule but with modern graphics, with a nice steampunk theme and a long forgotten gameplay style. Too bad for the messy and frustrating controls and the rough storytelling: it could have been much better.

    Black Desert manages to surprise us with great features like its deep character editor and a very dynamic and varied combat system, with a rich world that's a pleasure to explore. On the other side, though, an overly complicated interface, some technical problems and a too repetitive mission structure keep it from reaching its full potential.

    Assassin's Creed III Remastered brings noticeable improvements in visuals and overall environment quality to AC 3 and Liberation, especially for owners of an Xbox One X and an HDR-capable TV. The overall experience is still dragged down by some of the original games shortcomings, like a repetitive mission structure, but it might be a worthwhile dive in the past for Assassin's Creed fans.

    The 80's Swedish killer robots invasion plot feels intriguing, but the whole game feels underdeveloped with bad storytelling and clunky gameplay mechanics. Its vibrant and lush external environments are the only good thing in the game, but it's too little to save it from mediocrity.

    From Software mixes well-proven and new gameplay elements to deliver an incredibly challenging and satisfying game, within a captivating Asian environment. It could have been bett-optimized and it's a pity it can't reach 60 fps on Xbox One X, but this undoubtedly is a must-have for all lovers of skill-demanding action games.

    Operencia: The Stolen Sun revives classic and long gone turn-based, first person dungeon-crawler mechanics, resulting in a very satisfying game for the lovers of the genre but bringing back several of its shortcomings. Definitely suggested to classic RPG nostalgics, but we recommend everyone else to try it too, via Xbox Game Pass.

    Xenon Racer is an adrenaline-filled and enjoyable arcade racer with lots of contents, but doesn't bring anything new on the table and feels a bit dated, lacking enough innovation. It's however advised to anyone missing a good Ridge Racer-esque experience on modern consoles.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    The Division 2 improves on the previous game in many areas, especially gameplay and end-game content, managing to feel always captivating and never boring. Too bad for the skinny and unsatisfying story, while the PvP section and modes needs more refinement and balance.

    One Piece: World Seeker tries to do many things but without enough focus in any of these, resulting in a rather disappointing game: the stealth, RPG and crafting parts feel too underdeveloped, while combat isn't satisfying and the open world looks too empty and lifeless. Some elements like the story, the swinging mechanic and the many characters present are still good tho and save it from being a complete failure.
