A South Park game which is at least as good as The Stick of Truth was, and that is definitely something good. Better UIs, and never-ending humor of all sorts. Once again, a game every South Park fan must play, and a game you should play if you are not.

6.5 / 10.0 - Get Even
Jul 7, 2017

A series of very interesting concepts which unfortunately do not come together well, while also attempting to achieve a photorealistic look that is never achieved in full. Nevertheless a touching story about connection, given the reduced price point, it's definitely something you should play if you have nothing else lined up in your backlog.

Full Throttle's strength is found within it's compelling story and colorful characters. A new artistic style and a masterful soundtrack selection by Tim Schafer. Even if it's shorter than most adventures, it definitely left a mark in my gaming career.

7.5 / 10.0 - Yooka Laylee
Apr 12, 2017

Yooka-Laylee brings back the best memories of good old 3D platformers from the Nintendo 64 era, but along with it, comes some of the bad choices made at the time.

8 / 10.0 - Everything

As an experimental game, Everything is not for everyone, whoever it pushes the boundaries on what a video game can be.

From the mind of Tim Schafer and his team at Double Fine, a funny, charming VR Adventure. If you happen to have a Playstation VR,love Psychonauts, and are also going to play Psychonauts 2, then don't skip this game.

8 / 10.0 - Ys Origin
Feb 21, 2017

The origin to the story of Ys, and a fast paced fun action rpg to play, something you should try while we wait for Ys VIII to land.

Resident Evil 7 is exactly what the series needed, a return to it's roots but with an added twist, a first person perspective. This is without a doubt one of the best Resident Evil games in years, a great terror game and the best experience in Playstation VR.

8.5 / 10.0 - Dishonored 2
Nov 30, 2016

An enjoyable and highly recommendable experience, even more so to those who fully enjoyed the first game. Arkane Studios has improved everything that needed improvement since Dishonored came out, and they give us an excellent game to enjoy on consoles and PC. Stealth is far from games like Deus Ex, however it is still entertaining although somewhat frustrating. Level design is magnificent, specially in two maps: a mansion that transforms its rooms with mechanisms and gizmos, and another mansion we can visit in two different time sets simultaneously. Dishonored 2 makes me want to replay Dishonored in its Definitive Edition release.

Once again Eidos Montreal has managed to craft a game that even people who dislike FPS, should play, since this game's focus is clearly Stealth and Tactics and not so much combat. The choices we make actually do have impact the further we go into the story, and you'll want to replay the game in order to know what would've happened if you had acted differently.

8 / 10.0 - Headlander
Aug 18, 2016

Headlander it an outstanding game artistically speaking, gameplay-wise its really fun and even though it's story is lost midway through, it's not something that hurts the game at all. The difficulty scales linearly as the game progresses, finding more powerful enemies as we advance, enemies which in turn we can posses, making it all beautifully balanced. Some gameplay mechanics fall short as they are not used enough, however the game is enjoyable from beginning to end. This is why i absolutely recommend this game, it's a fun experience all the way through, although clocking at around six hours, it left me wanting for more.

9 / 10.0 - Doom
Jun 28, 2016

In it's full splendor, Doom is a complete package, and a very good one. What stands out above all is it's single player campaign, which is enjoyable from beginning to end, putting us in the least-likely-to-survive situations while queueing and outstanding music reminiscent of the 1993 classic. Multiplayer is not as good, but it's worth a try, especially worth trying out is the ingenious Snap-Map level creator.

8.5 / 10.0 - Severed
Jun 16, 2016

First Person, Dungeon, RPGs, Touch controls, a weird mix, that makes Severed another reason to own a PS Vita, which is nowadays a very rare feat since the portable console has been completely outcast by Sony, yet kept afloat by developers such as Drinkbox Studios. There is no doubt this is a game that needs to be in your library, so go dust off that Vita and play this game.

9 / 10.0 - Ratchet & Clank
Apr 13, 2016

The first Ratchet & Clank is one of my favourite games, and so is the whole saga basically. The latest games, 'Ratchet & Clank: All 4' One and 'Full Frontal Assault', went a bit off path from the classic 3D platformer genre and were in turn not very well received. 'Into The Nexus' took back the classic formula, but the game was so short, that it seems more of a teaser and left us wanting even more. This refresh, remake, reversion of the original, a sort of playable Pixar movie, is the perfect opportunity for any gamer to drop into this amazing space adventure saga.

I fell in love with Lucasarts when i grew up, so did most people playing adventure games in the 90s. But for Day of the Tentacle, there is a special place in my heart. The drawings and animation, the characters, the humor, the story -while a bit of a cliche it's perfectly tied by many puzzles-, make Day of the Tentacle one of the greatest graphic adventure games of all time. Special mention to the spanish subtitling team in adapting the many US jokes and themes into something more palpable.

9 / 10.0 - SUPERHOT
Mar 11, 2016

SUPERHOT is both simple and complex, cold looking yet made with so much love. It is a unique and innovative game. I can't wait to play this in VR, since at it's heart, that platform is where this game belongs. MIND IS SOFTWARE.

8.5 / 10.0 - Layers of Fear
Feb 24, 2016

It's hard not to compare this game to PT/Silent Hills, it even has the same zoom when pressing R3. In its six chapters, each lasting around one hour, Layers of Fear you will give you goosebumps, no doubt about it. If we analyze it layer by layer (ha!) it does fall short on some aspects, such as voice acting, but the overall experience is really good. We are full on the "walking simulator" era, it's going to be interesting what each developer tries to do in order to innovate.

The premise of The Westport Independent sure is interesting, sadly, it's execution falls short. I feel here's a bit of history lacking, and no climax whatsoever. With a bit more work, this might've been a great game, such as Papers Please was. It still is an entertaining game given it's short duration, although it's repetitiveness eventually bored me and eventually i no longer cared about which news i filtered and which ones i didn't. Definetly a very interesting concept, with lots of potential, it just wasn't delivered properly.

Homeworld's return is not quite what I expected, in many ways this is a step back for this grandiose saga. However, it is a solid strategy game that any fan of the genre will definitely enjoy. If you haven't already do give the HD remastered of the previous games a try.

Star Wars: Battlefront is probably the best multiplayer game in the saga, beating what the previous two games could accomplish. Sadly, no single-player campaign, in this way the attention to detail, characters and environments feel a bit wasted. Plenty of easter eggs to enjoy, specially if you leave the menu for a couple of minutes. Hopefully EA will implement an automatic rotation through different games modes, since many of them hardly have any players. A game you cannot miss if you are a Star Wars fan. Play it now though, being multiplayer only, i don't see this game having enough players for too long.
