    Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't just a masterwork with an unparalleled attention in details and world development, but a real new milestone in its genre, capable of further shortening the distance between movies and games, but without sacrificing gameplay and complexity. A game that everyone should play.

    Rockstar shows all its mastery and care for detail even in a "porting" operation, delivering us a visually stunning and richer GTA experience and successfully introducing the new first-person camera, something we loved and would like to see in any Rockstar game from now on.

    There’s no better time than this to use the word masterwork: Rockstar did a colossal job creating a huge, visually stunning world chiseled in its finest details, populated by brilliant characters and with highly spectacular and varied gameplay.

    Mass Effect 2 maintained the promise of delivering a worthy sequel to the first game, improving it with a tighter shooter component and the brave choice of streamlining the RPG one. Our only complain is the sub-par story, lacking the complexity and intrigue of the first one. Despite this, it remains a game capable to amaze any sci-fi lover.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is, undobtedly, Bethesda's masterwork: a deep, pure and vast RPG capable of satisfying both fans and newcomers to the genre thanks to great gameplay and an involving story. A strong contender to the title of best game of the year and of the entire generation.

    Red Dead Redemption is one of those one-in-a-generation games capable of setting a new bar in its genre. Absolutely unmissable by anyone.

    Portal 2 builds upon the great gameplay of the first game, adding a compelling and humorous story and a great co-op campaign. If you played the first Portal, this game won't feel as fresh and innovative to you and the developers lowered the difficulty bar too; nonetheless, this is a very recommended game that every lover of logic puzzles should buy.

    Kojima managed to create the perfect open-world stealth game, giving the player an incredible freedom coupled with great depth and variety. MGS fans will probably dislike its sparse and somewhat unsatisfying storytelling, but it undoubtedly is a masterwork of game design.

    A great game, that successfully builds upon the foundation of the first title delivering us one of the best super heroes and action games around. It lacks highly memorable moments like the ones in the original game and delivers a quite disappointing final boss fight, but its incredible content richness and great gameplay make it an highly suggested buy.

    Celeste surprised us with its tight and challenging but very rewarding gameplay, coupled with a deep story and great level design. Sometimes you can feel lost in the game's vast areas and it could have used a more diversified gameplay, but it's definitely a game to have for lovers of 2D platform games.

    Modern Warfare 2 was super-hyped, but Infinity Ward didn't disappoint: this is undoubtedly the most spectacular FPS around, made with extraordinary care and attention to details. If you're looking for an astonishing single player experience or a deep and enduring multiplayer, this is the game to buy.

    One of the best Live Arcade games around: entertaining, immediate, challenging and nostalgic. A must have.

    A great game with awesome settings, a deep and extremely complex story and charming characters. It left a bitter taste in our mouths for not fully reaching its initial ambitions, especially regarding Elizabeth's interactions in combat and for lacking some of the magic present in the first BioShock, but it's nonetheless an excellent game which surely deserves to be played.

    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.

    Mass Effect 3 is a great conclusion, fully satisfying and highly spectacular, to BioWare's sci-fi trilogy. A must buy for every lover of good games and great, emotional stories, as well as the first real nominee to the title of GOTY 2012.

    • 92 Critic Score
    A real horror masterwork, capable of great respect for its roots but at the same time offering us a fresh and modern take on Capcom's cult game. Great graphics, a tighter storytelling and an high replay value make Resident Evil 2 a game worth playing both by fans of the original game and everyone who never played it.

    Playdead took everything they did well with Limbo and brought it to the next level, carefully crafting an incredibly meditative, unpredictable and mature adventure. With a flawless, clean and detailed artistic design and an incredible variety in gameplay, Inside is a real masterpiece that will repeatedly blow your mind. A must buy.

    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.

    A game driving us through a roller-coaster of emotions while exploring adult and tragic stories, narrated with exceptional sensitivity and humanity. A game you can't miss if you love story-driven experiences.

    Turn 10 managed to improve an already great title, offering us the best racing game available today on consoles. This game bursts with passion for the motors world, conveying it to the player and immersing him in a great experience. A must have.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum has been a real surprise, delivering us a great action game, with a deep stealth/tactical gameplay, great loyalty to the original comics and a strong plot. Undoubtedly the best comics-based video game so far, and one of the best games released this year: a real milestone.

    A stunning puzzle-platform adventure, which couples great mechanics and smart puzzles to a very intriguing and adult story. Definitely one of the best indie (and maybe overall too) games on Xbox One so far.

    A great fighting game: it's got everything made SF IV great, plus new characters, new moves, new online modes and a greater gameplay balance thanks to some subtle but very important gameplay tweaks.

    If you liked the first Dark Souls, you won’t be disappointed by this sequel: its high challenge level, exploration pleasure and unique storytelling made of many story snippets we have to find and retrieve make it a worthwhile buy.

    An outstanding RPG, from its great plot and storytelling all the way to the engaging combat and incredibly rich world, supported by some great visuals. Despite some minor slip-ups in frame-rate stability and enemy AI, it's definitely one of the best games of the generation so far.

    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.

    One of the most interesting games of the year, bringing a breath of fresh air in the Arena Shooter genre with an inspired design and highly accessible, yet satisfying, gameplay. Its main downside is the limited set of modes, something we hope Blizzard will keep expanding month after month.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 98 Critic Score
    A real masterwork and definitely the best arcade racer yet, thanks to an incredibly balanced driving model, tons of contents both off and on-line, and an outstanding technical production. A must buy.

    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.

    Halo: Reach finds its strength in a varied and balanced gameplay, a deep and dramatic story and gorgeous environments, aside from the many multiplayer modes with virtually infinite customization possibilities. We're only left with a little bit of delusion for the lack of really surprising and memorable moments during the story, like the ones the series accustomed us to. Notwithstanding, Bungie closes its run on Halo with a great game that both fans and newcomers will find highly satisfying.
