8 / 10.0 - Killer Instinct
Nov 18, 2013

Killer Instinct knows how to be technical to the core for those who want to deepen certain mechanics, but at the same time not unattainable even by those who do not know what a "frame trap" is.

8 / 10.0 - Dead Rising 3
Nov 18, 2013

Enjoy the exaggerated, disproportionate, inordinate carnage of Dead Rising 3. The new Capcom title leaves the narrative permanently in the background and focuses all on the dynamics of free-roaming. The missions tend to look a bit alike, a bit of repetition makes its way after a few hours, but basically what matters is simply experimenting with new, sadistic ways to dent that wall of rancid flesh that runs through the streets of Los Perdidos. Dead Rising 3 arrives with a guessed structure and a co-op mode that entice you to devote yourself to the massacre, discovering the absurd combinations of weapons and vehicles invented by the development team. It will not be one of those experiences that remain in your heart, but certainly the game accompanies the launch of Xbox One in a more than dignified way, offering itself as a solid and fun pastime, not recommended only for those who really do not digest the philosophy of sandboxes.

8.3 / 10.0 - Forza Motorsport 5
Nov 20, 2013

Forza Motorsport 5 is a great simulator, supported by an immoderate love for the automotive world, and full of class touches (the partnership with Top Gear is very useful in this sense). It is also a somewhat “trunk” episode, with certain aspects developed in a hurry (the music is really terrible), which represents a good start but not a perfect lap.

7.5 / 10.0 - Ryse: Son of Rome
Nov 21, 2013

Ryse: Son of Rome is the most technically incredible title available on Xbox One. It is a display of graphic and communicative power, a lesson in style, and a clear example of the wonderful places where the Microsoft console will lead us. Unfortunately, it is also a rather boring title, too equal to itself, which fails to evolve. The combat system, in its foundations, works well: it is fluid and well guessed. But the choice to focus so much on Quick Time Events dampens too much the degree of challenge, and the structure of the campaign, excessively linear, is all focused only on the clashes.

9 / 10.0 - Fez
Mar 27, 2014

There is an element that stands out more than others, in that set of suggestions, quotes and atmospheres set up by Phil Fish: the beauty of craftsmanship. Fez is a title built pixel by pixel, over an interminable five years: a project that has voraciously accumulated ideas, artistic registers, original and traditional gameplay dynamics. The result is a real gem, a title that shines at the highest levels of the platform genre, and succeeding from start to finish to tease, intrigue and excite the player. The arrival on Sony platforms, after the hands of its creator, is a blessing. Don't miss this opportunity.

Aug 18, 2014

If you have never played Diablo 3, this "definitive" edition is the right opportunity to start: you will rediscover not only a deep and calculated hack'n'slash, but also one of the few exponents of the genre who happily managed to adapt to the control system via joypad.

For the same price as the "smooth" version, available on Xbox One and microsoft's older-generation home console, PC users can take home the Ultra edition of capybara's shmup. It's not the additional characters that make this re-run more interesting, but the challenge rooms that ask to play with the unlikely temporal capabilities of the equally unlikely team of heroes. The "puzzle" component is enhanced, and in short an alternative approach to that of the main adventure, always well rhythmic, which prefers total blasting.

8.8 / 10.0 - Halo 5: Guardians
Oct 26, 2015

The fifth regular chapter of the Halo saga will certainly leave long-time fans satisfied, for some time looking for a multiplayer sector capable of rivaling that proposed by the historical trilogy. Abandoning the Armor Abilities and returning to focus on a pure and clean gameplay, Halo 5 performs a small miracle: it manages to distance itself far enough from the two "giants" that have saturated the market in recent years, demonstrating not only a strong character, but also the ability to adapt to the needs of a large segment of the public.

8.7 / 10.0 - DiRT Rally
Mar 29, 2016

An impressive driving experience. Leaving aside the "glam" tone of Dirt 3 and Showdown, Codemasters synthesize in a game the true feeling of the discipline and the thrill of offroead racing. The console version is technically impressive, smooth as the PC counterpart.

9 / 10.0 - Dark Souls III
Apr 4, 2016

Miyazaki finds the best way to close the Dark Souls trilogy. In terms of gameplay, Dark Souls 3 has the same taste of the previous chapters, and is not original and fresh as Bloodborne has been. A great number of improvements, still, refine the formula and create another impressive action RPG. Dark Souls 3 is infused with a cruel beauty; its world -assembled with pieces from Lordran and Yharnam and Boletaria - represents a place where any fan would love to wander.
