9.2 / 10.0 - Halo Infinite
Dec 5, 2021

Halo: Infinite Multiplayer is a bomb. It is the return in great dust not only of a historical franchise - which regains a place at the top of competitive shooters - but also of a different interpretation of the genre.

Call of Duty Vanguard is a particular episode, a collage of experiences that do not all present the same inspiration and quality.

8.5 / 10.0 - Psychonauts 2
Aug 23, 2021

Classic in setting and structure, Psychonauts 2 proudly adheres to the canon of platform adventure of the early 2000s: that line of products that stood out for a certain craftsmanship in the construction of the levels and for a strong attention in the characterization of history and characters. Just like in the first chapter, the elements of originality do not come so much from the gameplay - which is still well studied and effective - as from the exuberance of the story, from the variety of situations, from the amount of unexpected and out-of-the-box sequences.

A more action-focused game, which puts exploration, puzzles and survival dynamics in the background (without completely eliminating them).

8.7 / 10.0 - Returnal
Apr 29, 2021

It is a powerful act of courage, a "leap into the void" that could usher in a bright future for Housemarque or put his work at risk. Recklessness and ambition are not enough to break through, but in this case they are accompanied by a grandiose creative vision, solid production values and meticulous and calculated design. Returnal does not achieve Hades' perfection, but is destined to make his mark in the Roguelike landscape.

8 / 10.0 - Outriders
Apr 19, 2021

Despite the obvious uncertainties in the first game sequences, Outriders was able to conquer us. What might have seemed like a classic shooter in dynamics and uncertain in the story has instead proved to be a shooter with assuring gameplay, and able to stand out for its density and richness of content. The campaign unfortunately remains subdued on the narrative front, but the gameplay sculpted by People Can Fly has something magnetic.

Demon's Souls is in a very strange position: on the one hand, as the launch game of PlayStation 5, it has the task of emphasizing the generational passage as effectively as possible, transmitting a sense of wonder that accompanies the arrival of the new hardware; on the other hand, however, it cannot misrepresent the philosophy and playful approach that From Software had imprinted on the original title.

6.7 / 10.0 - Bugsnax
Nov 9, 2020

Bugsnax is a fun and light adventure, suitable for a young audience but able to intrigue even the most grown players. It tells a story of friendship and courage, but also of acceptance of diversity and peaceful coexistence. Meanwhile, it leads us to discover the funny Bugsnax, chasing the same curiosity that is typical of monster collectors at Pokémon. The game mechanics are simple and long distance not too diverse (a couple of extra tools and traps would not have hurt), but thanks to an ever-present script and some surprise related to legendary Bugsnax, ten hours on snacktooth island are more than willingly spent. The price is modest, the production commitment well adapted to the team's ambitions. It won't have a particularly bright imagination or impactful graphics, but from the discovery of the Formikebabs to the fight with pizzafalena, Bugsnax always manages to snatch an honest smile.

Nothing new for those who have already worn the Spider-Man costume on PS4, but Insomniac always remains a guarantee of great quality.

Horizon Zero Dawn brings to PC a vibrant and unique world, excellently characterized and wonderful to observe. Aloy's adventure, net of some obvious imperfections and some aspects that have worst stood the test of time, is still fascinating and extremely fun to play.

The Origami King does not reach the excellence of its impressive predecessor, The Thousand-Year Door, precisely because it decides to overshadow the PRG component.

4 / 10.0 - Maneater
May 22, 2020

Like a sneaky, deadly hunter, Maneater plunges into the turbulent depths of the video game market in search of unsuspecting victims. He intrigues them with the promise of a compelling exploration, attracts them winking at a stimulating progression, opens his jaws to emphasize the exaltation of a fierce predatory experience. But be careful: if someone really had to approach him, he would end up in a lake of blood. Tripwire's dogfish has unseen teeth, moves with unmanageable spasms, and fails to vary either its diet, nor the bleak routine of a boring, mechanical hunt. Stranded on the sand, await the sad fate that touches all the fish left in the sun.

The Foundation is an honest DLC, which extends the main adventure by opening a narrative parenthesis that is not exactly explosive, but still solid and convincing.

It's a special game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. An addictive diversion that allows you to escape from the daily routine to discover an alternative, made of flowers to plant, of strange talking animals, of a wandering disengagement between rivers and beaches.

9 / 10.0 - Dreams
Feb 12, 2020

In short, it has become something new and never seen. Even just looking at it is good for the heart. Being able to enhance it can also make us better players.

7.5 / 10.0 - Darksiders Genesis
Dec 4, 2019

It is not fair to talk about a wasted opportunity, because Genesis even manages to surprise and the purchase is highly recommended to all fans of the brand, but more could be done to finish a title that still does not reach the heights of the first regular chapters.

6 / 10.0 - GYLT
Nov 19, 2019

The result is an always regular experience, if not for some well-conceived enigma and a good number of secrets to be discovered. Gylt is not a product to be completely thrown away, but in order to give character to its platform, Stadia needs other exclusive items.
