8 / 10.0 - Chernobylite
Jul 28, 2021

Chernobylite is a title in some ways surprising: born from a small - but very talented - Independent Polish studio (those The Farm 51 already authors of Get Even) the work mixes in an inseparable whole different videogame genres. A horror / sci-fi narrative, not original but intriguing, role-playing elements, survival mechanics, a deep and layered crafting, a typical action of a first-person shooter and a micro management mechanic that perhaps invalidates a little too much the ambitious bet of the development team.

6.5 / 10.0 - Pokemon UNITE
Jul 26, 2021

Pokémon Unite starts from an excellent idea: to appropriate the main characteristics of the most popular genre ever, to shape it and give life to something new or, at least, endowed with a certain autonomous dignity. In addition, of course, there are Pokémon: we wonder why this idea had not been revealed before, but, evidently, it took the intervention of Tencent and TiMi to push on the accelerator. Pokémon Unite is still an intriguing and, at first, addictive proposal. The mechanics work very well and the title is a lot of fun.

Dark Alliance returns after about sixteen years of oblivion. Tuque's work, which became an in-house development studio at Wizards of the Coast, despite having a rather grandiose name and glorious past, starts from scratch adopting some rather drastic (and not always winning) solutions, for the canons of the hack 'n' slash genre.

6 / 10.0 - Open Country
Jun 10, 2021

FunLabs' new title is especially striking for its ambition. The development studio, in fact, for the first time dares to get out of the comfort zone that has characterized hunting games for years and offers the public a curious mixture between open world, dynamics extrapolated from the survivals and mechanics typical of any hunting game. The big problem with this clearly tight budget is that the mixture of genres is grouped into an unconsused and, above all, unbalanced mix.

The guys at Sumo Digital Newcastle try to offer a playful experience that is different from the usual and undoubtedly intriguing, at least on paper. Hood: Outlaws & Legends, in fact, is an atypical, brave product in many ways, that doesn't hide behind easy solutions.

This new edition is not a simple façade work: the technical update is there and you can see, with support for ultra-widescreen 4K monitors, as well as native UHD resolution, as well as the restoration of polygonal models, effects and physics management. The very heart of the playful experience has been reshaped to adapt to the times that run and this means a functional user interface, minimalist style magazine, slew of twists and useless frills.
