In looking for a way to compose a product suitable for children, Microids seems to have lost sight of what is really needed to convey a bit of healthy fun pad in hand.

If Super Mario Party chose to take the path of timid "next-gen" evolution, Mario Party Superstars takes the opposite, yet complementary, path of amarcord traditionalism. The result is a celebratory episode of fine workmanship, a reasoned selection of some of the most representative tables and minigames of what the franchise has been in its abundant twenty years of existence.

Despite the twenty years on monkey shoulders, the first Super Monkey Balls remain puzzle video games of superfine quality, however tough at the limits of sacrilegious swearing. Retrogaming aside, Banana Mania is undoubtedly the best way to experience the rotating gameplay recipe, now also open to welcome any newbies thanks to the introduction of some "assist controls" with optional activation.

Despite the eleven years on his shoulders, Sonic Colours is confirmed to be among the most interesting adventures of the polygonal "second life" of the hyperkinetic hedgehog. Enjoying it fully is still possible, certainly thanks to its intrinsic qualities - level design, in particular - but also to the commitment lavished by Blind Squirrel in packaging Ultimate: a remastering work of very good level, although perfectible.

7.8 / 10.0 - Axiom Verge 2
Aug 24, 2021

With his new project Thomas Happ undoubtedly chooses to take the most difficult path, creating a metroidvania that reconnects to Axiom Verge just enough to then proceed in the direction of an essentially different experience, which neglects the quality of the clashes in favor of the journey between dimensions and science fiction scenarios.

8.2 / 10.0 - Minute of Islands
Jun 21, 2021

It only takes just over four hours to fall in love with Minute of Islands, an indie adventure that plays with the user's expectations, attracting him with his boyish graphic manhood in a corrupt, exhausting island world, with an uncertain history, as on the other hand, the nature of the characters acting within it is uncertain.

8 / 10.0 - R-Type Final 2
May 5, 2021

It's hard to think of a product that's better suited to R-Type Final 2 r-typers. In a pedisse retrace the trail left by the famous arcade shooter of the eighties, the revival operation by Granzella Inc. modernize here and there the playful recipe of departure, finally returning an experience with a high nostalgic rate, with much above-average difficulties, just like in the old days. Whether this is the real ending of the series or not, try not to miss the exciting opportunity to take flight among the stars again.

5.5 / 10.0 - Balan Wonderworld
Apr 1, 2021

Yet Naka and Oshima's new toil collapses under the weight of a shoddy, disoriented realization, mostly unable to pay homage to the old days without being unnecessarily cumbersome. What Balan Wonderworld leaves good, to top it off, is an imagery that might be worth taking back in the future, as long as you find him a less crumpled playful suit.

7 / 10.0 - The Falconeer
Nov 7, 2020

It would be ungenerous to deny Tomas Sala's work good basic qualities, such as to ensure this peculiar "bird's eye" combat simulator a certain solidity at least on the technical-artistic front. What emerges after a few hours in the skies of the Ursee, however, is that The Falconeer is a product that shines more in aesthetics than in actual ability to involve the player within the wet world he chooses to tell.

No one suspected they needed Tetris 99, yet we all know how it turned out. Just as no one probably felt the need for a competitive Super Mario Bros. for thirty-five users; but now it's on the eShop, free for all Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, and it's going to be really hard to do without it.

6.8 / 10.0 - Struggling
Aug 29, 2020

Like its repulsive protagonist, Struggling is a two-faced herm. It has a stomach-turning glance, yet irresistible. Alternate questionable design choices with fragments of good entertainment. It is a poison (in single) and a panacea (in pairs). You may hate it, if patience is not your forte; or worship him, if you are a person of spirit. One thing is certain: you have hardly had - and will have - to deal with a video game as absurd as Struggling.

Sorry that a series like Patapon, still unique in the rhythm game genre, is struggling to find peace among the pixels of its new editions for PlayStation 4.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD is a job of remastering well done, as we would like to see more often applied also to titles of greater appeal.

8.8 / 10.0 - Super Mario Maker 2
Jun 26, 2019

As it stands , Super Mario Maker 2 represents today, despite some weaknesses, the most complete episode of the series: fanciful for the most passive platform devourers, indispensable for every creative of the Mushroom Kingdom that aims to be defined as such.

Despite this and other minor imperfections, Yoshi's Crafted World remains a virtuous representative of its genre segment, as well as a convincing start to the season for Nintendo Switch 2019.

It should not be denied that the diptych can be a very good entry point for novices, a modern bridge that allows it to move from Pokémon GO to a "more videogame" experience without getting lost in the network of technicalities proposed by the recent RPG episodes
