    Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is an 2.5D scroll Action JRPG with some Metroidvania elements developed by Yoshitaka Murayama (Suikoden series) that feels really basic on the very beginning but as soon as you keep playing and reaching some point in the storyline it will get surprisingly better and fun. This game is a prequel to Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, coming next year 2023, but this will be turn-based JRPG instead. Overall, great visual graphics and designs, great 3D environments, beautifully animated, and a japanese-kinda-storyline with probably too many unnecessary sidequests missions and some main missions unnecessary as well. Could be better overall but after 150+ missions and more than 30 hours your love for the characters, the world and ultimately the game, will just keep rising for this new IP.

    Evil Dead: The Game is a great asymmetrical game. It's fun in both roles and has a lot of content, but it still has several issues to fix.

    Trek to Yomi is a game with its ups and downs, in which an interesting plot, together with an amazing artistic style, fall apart due to a terrible combat system, which leaves this title in a "limbo".

    Dolmen manages to take the Souls formula by turning it upside down and incorporating it into a space environment, with very exciting action-rpg and exploration properties.

    Chernobylite receives a good dose of improvements with the Xbox Series X|S version, which eliminates many of its most obvious problems and leaves a final product that is quite good, but far from perfect. While Chernobylite on Xbox Series X|S is certainly the ultimate way to experience what this game has to offer, it is disappointing that the game has optimization issues, which is reflected in its noticeable frame rate drops, both on loading screens and in the game overall. However, the 60fps, the graphical improvements in terms of texture definition, and also the lighting improvements suit the game well.

    Martha is Dead is a walking simulator with touches of psychological horror that manages to turn its most controversial section into an element capable of enhancing what it intends to show, although there are times when it unnecessarily overdoes it. Although it has a somewhat clumsy gameplay and a deficient technical section, the story of Giulia is worth living.

    Tropico 6: Next Gen Edition is an essential game for those who love construction, management and twisted politics. The 4K resolution suits perfect in Kalypso Media's game.

    MotoGP 22 proves once again that Milestone are masters of MotoGP. This year's instalment pays homage to the 2009 season with a 'documentary' style mode that is a real treat, alongside last year's modes providing the ultimate experience for any MotoGP fan.

    Long awaited masterpiece Chrono Cross is back, and the HD remaster done by Square-Enix fit perfectly as an ode to the series started in 1995 with Chrono Trigger. Now with the sequel-spin-off Radical Dreamers for the first time released across the world and finally translated, The Radical Dreamers Edition does and outstanding job reminding us how epic was Chrono Cross back in 1999 and how it's still up to date in 2022 in terms of quality and gameplay. One of the best JRPG ever made with new 3D models, 2D redrawn work on HD and power-up buttons. Probably the best HD remaster from Square-Enix made to date. Not a single technical issue despite controversy across social media, we played 50+ hours on four different Xbox consoles, and even PS4, just to find out Switch and Steam ports are the ones having real trouble on framerate and delay, not on Xbox nor PS4.

    Road 96 is a very good game, with side characters that become the main characters. The way the story is told through a character who is a "spectator" but whose decisions influence the world and those around him is a wise move.

    Flat Kingdom is a 2.5D platform and puzzle game. In this game you'll be able to change into 3 different shapes: triangle, circle and square. With these forms you'll have different abilities and ways of solving puzzles and battling your enemies. It's fun to experiment and see what works best on what.

    LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the best LEGO game ever, and it's a love letter to the universe that George Lucas created many decades ago. With hundreds of hours ahead, you will enjoy playing solo, or with someone else.

    GTA V on Xbox Series X gives very little reason for Xbox One players to upgrade (for a fee). A version that easily could have been free is left behind a paywall to justify technical improvements that fall short of the mark.

    Long story short, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origins feels like a game from two generations ago. Even if sometimes it could be perceived as a positive thing, it isn't when it means really poor graphics and an empty and bothersome story. Still, its combat system offers a fun and fresh experience, which will satisfy fans from the action genre. The question is if you'll be able to forgive its many, many flaws in favor of its fun gameplay.

    Shredders is a game designed for snowboarding lovers, which includes good and fun mechanics to carry out the tests. Unfortunately, it falls short on everything else, causing you to lose interest very quickly.

    The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature is a small piece of art with some great ideas, great art design and wonderful O.S.T. but sadly doesn't get to top quality for some minor issues. Script and story are also great, multiple endings and some unique ideas on the main character's development and the world around him. Overall could be a great game, if it wasn't for being too short, or some technical issues mostly solved by restarting checkpoint, and maybe a "third act" more accurate and built than it was. Nevertheless still a great point-and-click like game adapted to consoles.

    Artistically superb, beautifully designed and overall well adapted to controller pads, Crusader Kings III delivers the PC experience to consoles in a very unique way. These kind of games on PC are relatively common from time to time, but on consoles this exotic genre is like a gem you can enjoy one time every decade -or even more-. These kind of games are not for everyone. Despite its magnificent possibilities and eternal endgame, it's very complex to learn how to play from start and you will spend several hours reading and playing tutorials or getting unlimited hints in order to actually get some small improvements on your walkthrough. Surprisingly no option for keyboard and mouse, despite the fact that many games are already including this compatibility option without any issues.

    Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is a great first attempt of Gearbox Software on making spin-offs about the Borderlands franchise. With marvellous gameplay, an excellent cast of characters and an original fantasy world, it's many flaws makes the experience less original.

    Tunic is one of the biggest surprises this year will offer, with a beautiful world to explore, a perfect soundtrack and a gameplay that, with its flaws, will give tons of hours of enjoying.

    If I have to say something about Elex II is that this is a particular game. If you were a fan of the initial game, you will like this one. But if you didn't play it, you might have a less than satisfying experience. The idea of a minimalist hud, an open world that you have to explore to discover its secrets, difficulty in combat, is striking. But there are many things that are not satisfactory, the main one being the combat. Elex II does not manage to get out of that feeling that you are playing a retro game, having been released in 2022.

    WWE 2K22 brings all the passion and adrenaline of wrestling, in a format that, although it is fair in terms of graphics, stands out for its renewed gameplay, enhancing its mechanics and positioning itself as the best in the franchise.

    Shadow Warrior 3 is a good student of DOOM's first-person shooter formula. Its fast, bloody and has funny moments. Recommended for all those who love epilepsy, jumps and point-blank shots, although Flying Wild Hog could have risked a little more in his playable formula and not play it safe. His proposal is more traditional than one might expect.

    Assetto Corsa Competizione hides, behind a theme that may seem unattractive, one of the best driving experiences available on console. The next-gen improvements are led by that 60fps performance, new content for more races, and visual improvements that doesn't feels of the next-gen feel. It doesn't matter for those who are looking for a real racing experience. In this moment, Assetto Corsa Competizione is the best racing experience you can find in consoles.

    Destiny 2: The Witch Queen is the best expansion Bungie has ever made, thanks to an interesting story, a great villain and a beautiful new zone to explore. Even with some low points, like the poor number of new activities, it's a must to have for every Destiny fan.
