8 / 10.0 - The Evil Within
Oct 14, 2014

The Evil Within is the most impetuous realization of Mikami's creative vision. Finally autonomous, yet so careful to recover fragments from the game designer's other hallucinate visions, the title tells a story that mixes alienating moments and oppressive clashes, strange hermetic symbolism with brutal violent exaggerations.

9.5 / 10.0 - Grand Theft Auto V
Nov 17, 2014

The Next-Gen version of GTA 5 is not a simple remake. It is indeed one of the most courageous operations of Rockstar Games, which has decided to propose - in addition to the classic experience of its masterpiece updated on the technical front - a whole new point of view for the series. The first-person view completely changes the rhythms of the game and the overall feeling of the gameplay, transforming Grand Theft Auto 5 into a product not only more enveloping, but with a new flavor.

It is not only the confirmation that the Wii U offer is original, with character and personality: it is a gigantic banquet made of nostalgia and cocks to which you should not avoid approaching.

8.5 / 10.0 - Dying Light
Feb 3, 2015

Dying Light is the impressive realization of an idea that with Dead Island had remained barely under the radar.

9 / 10.0 - Bloodborne
Mar 24, 2015

Like a nightmare from which it is impossible to wake up, like the blood disease whose name it bears, Bloodborne torments the players, contaminates them and imprisons them in a world annihilated by pain.

If The Phantom Pain is really going to be goodbye, it's a farewell worthy of the name it bears.

Super Mario Maker accomplishes what we might call a beautifully "democratic" creative revolution: Nintendo has decided to take an iconography built in thirty years of success and feed it to its fans, giving it the opportunity to use all its elements in an original way. He did so with a brilliant and well-thought-out editor, who boasts an out-of-the-ordinary usability.

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.

Overall, and the vote for this latest episode actually coincides with the global one assigned to this first season, Tales from the Borderlands is a bet won, a title that confirms Telltale's excellent skills and does not disappoint long-time fans and new patrons.

The Following is an example for anyone who wants to develop additional content. A year after the release, the development team gives us a new adventure that, in terms of quantity and extension, has little to envy to the original one. The plot, mysterious and intriguing, lets us discover little by little the customs of the Sons of the Sun, a sect of fanatics immune to contagion, and puts us in front of interesting personalities and revelations.

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.

The second episode of this short spin-off is a little better than the debut one. In the first half of Give No Shelter there's some rushed moments and a pinch of groundless fan-service, but after that the story finally thickens. Let's wait for the last chapter and hope for the best.

Heart Machine delivers a great masterpiece, an impressive mixture of style and gameplay. Hyper Light Drifter is one of the best action game we ever played, and showcases a complex and enchanting pixel art. It brings you in a silent and distant world, it tests your ability with a deep an fast paced gameplay; it's the rightful heir of '90s bidimensional adventures.

7.8 / 10.0 - Ratchet & Clank
Apr 11, 2016

The new Ratchet & Clank is half a reboot, half an original adventure. It has the old school gameplay, surprising new weapons and gadgets, and a huge veriety of situations to support an interesting adventure. The last part of the story mode, however, becomes too easy and too messy when the weapon upgrade system neutralizes the level of difficulty. Shorter than the original Ratchet & Clank, is a great comeback for the duo anyway.

The epilogue of Camouflaj's Republique forgets about the mediocre God's Acre and tries to catch up with the first three episodes. But two years after the debut many ideas are outdated and the linear level design can't sustain a pleasant progression.

5 / 10.0 - The Collider 2
Apr 18, 2016

The Collider 2 is a sci-fi endless runner that tries to stand out thanks to the VR Support, but doesn't have the contents of the quality to keep the player engaged for a long time.

9 / 10.0 - Alienation
Apr 25, 2016

Alienation is Housemarque's masterpiece. A fast-paced heir of Dead Nation, deeply integrated with RPG mechanics and loot system. Alienation is the Diablo of the Twin Stick Shooter genre, with a short campaign but an enormous endgame.

Afetr a wobbly start, Michonne's mini-series returns on the right path. This last episode is, literally, What We Deserve: a story focused on the characters and not on the fan-service, a touching tale of revenge and forgiveness.

Uncharted 4 is one of the best action game ever created. The story doesn't have the same emotional impact of The Last of Us, but it bravely focus on the characters and their relationships. On the other side the tension, the diversity, the pace and the aesthetic value of Nate's last adventure is something we never experienced before.
