    This game offers nothing new, but it succeeds in blending together different genders, offering a pleasant package for younger players, whom will find it very easy to learn. It's isn't clearly aimed to the hardcore gamer who won't find anything particularly interesting in it.

    Stunning graphics and an adrenalinic gameplay make Resident Evil 5 one of the showcase titles for this generation: its mainly action foundation could disappoint who was expecting a more atmospheric and purely horror game, but it is undoubtedly an extremely entertaining, cinematic and satisfying experience, with many surprises and great variety. A must buy.

    Ensemble Studios finally achieved a result sought by many developers this gen: creating a true console RTS, easy and amusing to play, yet keeping it highly challenging. Besides this, we get a great Halo story, with charismatic characters and amazing CGI cut-scenes. This game did for the RTS genre what the original Halo did for the FPS, and we're sure it will have a great impact in future games of this kind.

    HAWX has been a real surprise: it manages to differ from the usual dogfighting games thanks to some original ideas, adding variety to a long-time stale genre. Flight-sim purists could dislike it, but if you'll approach it without prejudices it'll be able to entertain you during all of its 20 missions, playable alone or in co-op, or allowing you to fight intense and lag-free 4 vs 4 online dogfights.

    If Eat Lead developers wanted to revive some of 80's gaming cliches, they succeeded: but this brought with it some heavy shortcomings, like great linearity, no environment interaction, and a very repetitive soundtrack. Nevertheless, the game is still enjoyable, mainly due to some very crazy moments. We suggest to give it a chance just for trying, but only when you'll be able to find it at a budget price.

    StokEd tastes of missed chance. Even if being sometimes entertaining, the game lacks in too many aspects. If you’re desperately looking for a new skateboarding sim, we suggest to pick it up when you’ll able to find it at a cheaper price.

    Without introducing particularly innovative elements, Swordfish Studios managed to ably mix and leverage already successful and well-known gameplay elements, delivering us a very entertaining dense hip hop style. Suggested to every lover of third person shooters, but mainly to Rap fans, that will find in this game all the traits of the gangsta lifestyle.

    tri-Ace managed to bring us a good game, but not exempt from defects like the bland plot and expressionless characters. Though we advise you to try it, mainly thanks to its very good combat system, one of the best we tried in a Japanese RPG.

    Rebellion tried to distinguish the game by adding a horror atmosphere, but what emerges is only a very poor technical realization and frustrating gameplay. When the list of cons drastically overtakes the pros, it's clear we have a game to avoid: the Eidos shooter can rather be taken as a compendium of what not to do in a game.

    Race Pro oozes with Simbin's passion for motorsports, but with some shortcomings lowering its global quality: a very good simulation model, great roar sounds and an accurate tracks reproduction coexist with annoying frame rate problems and a mediocre cars reproduction. It's mainly a game for ultra-fans of cars and motors, looking for a very straightforward experience.

    Street Fighter IV is an 18 years jump back in time, firmly keeping a foot in the present: a great technical and artistic realization couples a classical gameplay with some nice additions, making it a real next-gen game. Capcom managed to bring us one of the most challenging and entertaining beat'em ups of all times, but we suggest playing it using a Fight Pad or an Arcade Stick to exploit it to the max.

    Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad seems to be much older than the three years passed since its first release in Japan: the gameplay is ridiculously simple and seems to be taken from games 20 years old and the plot is trite and uninteresting. Even the bikini-girls-with-blades theme fails to attract, due to disappointing and last-gen worth graphics. Keep away from this game, and your X button will thank you.

    Despite its many defects, mainly the tricky controls and the bland story, X-Blades revealed to be somewhat enjoyable, and capable of keeping us interested until the end.

    Afro Samurai shines on one side for its great artistic value, with some of the best cel-shaded graphics seen to date and great music and dubbing, but on the other side we find very boring gameplay, unable to provide us a good challenge level. The game will be mainly appreciated by the fans of the original manga/anime, while all the others will also have problems to follow the story, due to an inconsistent storytelling.

    A good compromise between modern survival-horror trends and the genre's classical elements, with consequent pros and cons. We mainly recommend it to Silent Hill fans, but it's also enjoyable as a stand-alone good psycho-thriller story, granted that you are willing to close an eye on the visual aspect and the tricky shooting.

    Thanks to the excellent visuals, brilliant characters and a compelling plot, Tales of Vesperia is a sure bet for all Japanese RPG and fantasy anime lovers: the very good combat system will ensure you to never get bored during the about 40 hours needed to end the main story, without counting in the many side-quests. Too bad, for us italian users, that the game wasn't localized at all: a very important blank, seen the great amount of dialogues involved.

    Superstars V8 Racing is an easily forgettable game: once finished the championship and established some track records in the free race mode, you won't desire to go back to the game, due to its very frustrating gameplay and poor and bug-ridden online multiplayer. Unless you're great fans of the italian Superstars championship, we suggest you wait for much better racers coming in the next months.
